Something I’m scared to admit to you guys. I’m not quite sure if I’ll ever use a proper face cleanser again. My name is Julie and I’m obsessed with face wipes. I just can’t help it, y’all! Once you start, you just can’t stop, trust me. Well after you have kids, you def won’t be able to stop. They’re just too easy for us mamas to work into our hectic schedule (I like to use them when I’m traveling, too!). But can I also tell you there is a difference in face wipes? No, really! Not only do some have harsh chemicals (which can be irritating), but they just don’t work as well. The latest I’ve been using are the “truth to go” wipes by Ole Henriksen ($15 for a 30-month supply).
Yummy, yummy ingredients like green tea and vitamin C are just perfect for the skin – thirst-quenching, antioxidant-loaded, brightening and tightening goodness. Yes, you could say I’m a fan of this citrus vanilla version from a brand we all love. I mostly use them before bed, but sometimes when I wake up with more-than-oily skin, I’ll use one in the morning as well. Really helps freshen my face and wake me up, too!
There’s really no trick to using face wipes, but I do think they’re extra great for removing pesky eye makeup as well. In fact, that’s one thing I love about them…just a few swipes and you’re done. Just make sure to take extra care of the sensitive eye area and work the wipes in an upward circular motion. After all, part of our beauty mantra is to age gracefully, yes?
