Today I'm going to let you in on a little secret...one of my favourite products from the bellabox store was originally meant for my guy! Read on for more about the glorious double-sided wipes from famed Olympic swimmer Michael Klim's skincare range Milk & Co!
The Milk & Co. Scrub + Cleanse Wipes were included in last summer's inaugural bellobox and when my man Sam eagerly unwrapped his first ever box of goodies, he was particularly taken by them. Like many guys, he's fairly low key when it comes to grooming - shampoo, face wash, shower gel, toothbrush and deodorant is the extent of his primping arsenal - and discovering a short cut when it comes to getting ready is a real plus in his books! He whipped one out to use straight away and the first thing I noticed was the refreshing scent of rosemary and mint filling the air - yum! I couldn't resist so I pulled one out of the handy packaging and started wiping...
One side of these extra large wipes is smooth, which provides a gentle and effective way to clear away daily residue and oil, then flip it over to see the exfoliating micro beads on the other!
These raised micro beads are small enough to be gentle but they sure to pack a punch, exfoliating away with the best of them, and the combination of using the smooth side to cleanse then the bumpy side to exfoliate left my face feeling wonderful! Along with the novelty of the different textures, the unique formulation of homeo soothe, chamomile extract and aloe vera protects and soothes the skin long after you've finished wiping.
So since being introduced to them last year courtesy of bellobox, these wipes have been a staple in Sam's bathroom drawer and I must admit, I do love sneaking one to use every now and then! Although they were designed with men in mind, they're a great wipe for women (and Michael's wife Lindy admits she loves them to remove her makeup too!) The only thing I have to be careful about is the divine rosemary and mint scent lingering on my face, giving Sam a hint of my sneaky steal! -Bridget
