Take It Off

Being the kinda gal that wears makeup "on a regular", I love using makeup wipes to take it all off at the end of the day. I find they remove everything, including mascara, quickly and with little tugging on the skin or eyes. (Then I can follow up with my favorite "Veritas" Purifying Bar by Elena Rubin for a deeper cleanse. Check our her Holistic Skincare Line)

Plus, wipes are a must-have for any makeup artist's kit! We have to provide the talent with the option to leave how they arrived. Needless to say, I've tried all kinds of makeup wipes and found so many of them contain lots of chemicals and leave your skin feeling kinda gross. Keeping in line with the natural options, I found these wonderful wipes that are good for your skin, the environment and get the job done!

Blum Naturals Towelettes come in different kinds for different types of skin: Daily Combination/Oily, Dry/Sensitive, Normal, Exfoliating and Pro Age. Each contain super ingredients like grape seed, chamomile, orange peel extract and tea tree oil, according to skin type. They are paraben, alcohol, synthetic fragrance, preservative and sodium laureth sulfate free! I found them at Ricky's in NYC for $6.99, but check their site on where to buy near you.

Love the name and packaging of the line Yes To Carrots! Yes to Cucumbers is their Soothing line, which includes these really fresh Natural Glow Towelettes. They use organic cucumbers, aloe vera and green tea to sooth, reduce puffiness and cleanse and tone the skin. They smell delicious and really make the skin feel clean, without any residue. They are biodegradable, oil free and exactly 98.7% natural! Pick them up at your local CVS or Target for $5.99.

I had heard so much about Josie Maran's Bear Naked Wipes and I finally got a chance to try them out! Verdict- love 'em! They are infused with all good stuff; chamomile, Vitamin E, aloe vera, argan oil and cucumber. They feel very gentle on the skin and eyes, have a subtle sweet scent and 1% of the proceeds from their sale got to saving the polar bears! Not to mention they are also biodegradable, paraben, artificial fragrance and petrochemical free! Can't got wrong. At $12.99 a pop, they can be purchased at Sephora and on Josie's site.
