By now, you’ve seen the facial wipes in the aisles of the drugstores and on the makeup counters of department stores. These little packs are so handy – they travel well, they can be used on other things besides your face (I use mine to clean makeup brushes in a pinch), and they are perfect for keeping on your nightstand for those nights that you just CANNOT bring yourself to get up and wash your makeup off.
Because I have oily, problematic skin, most wipes were only good for getting my makeup off, and provided no treatment for my skin whatsoever. That has changed, though, and now you can find a packet of wipes for any skin type out there. These are my favorite three that I use all the time.
Dead Sea Elements Facial Wipes – these are perfect for those with normal, dry, or sensitive skin. Infused with Dead Sea minerals and salts, this does an amazing job of removing eye makeup without being greasy, tacky, or harsh. I was lucky enough to get this pack at The Makeup Show, and I use them all the time for the area around my eyes.
Neutrogena Oil Free Cleansing Wipes – Neutrogena is my go-to for great skin care products. I’ve been using their line of skin care for problem skin for AGES. When they began making these wipes, I could have cried – they were the first to bring the convenience of a wipe to those of us with oily skin. Containing salicylic acid, these will truly get your face clean. Just don’t use them on the eyes. Ever. Find these in drugstores and mass retailers.
Yes to Tomatoes Blemish Clearing Facial Towelettes – I grabbed these on a trip and haven’t regretted it. I was nervous that I was going to be dealing with a product that smelled like tomatoes, but fortunately, I was worried for nothing. These contain salicylic acid as well, the best beta hydroxy acid for clearing up breakouts. These do a good job of controlling sebum, so if you are trying to keep oil production in check, give these a try. Found at Drugstore.com and Target.
