It's not just the travel theme, but we can't get enough to beauty wipes at the moment. Practical, handy, easy and for most of us at bb, essential, beauty wipes are a must-have in our beauty bags. Here's a round up of our current favourites and why we love them...
LA Fresh is one of the new to bb brands from the July box. Shaking up the idea of what wipes are for (not just makeup removing!) their range covers a whole lotta beauty bases, from anti-aging, to polish removing and more. My top pick is the La Fresh Instant Body Smoother Wipes. Designed for your bod, a quick swipe over skin will uplift, cool and revitalise -perfect for dull winter skin, or to refresh during the warmer months. Made with a blend of 6 oils, including jojoba, olive, sesame and peppermint, they are also mega nourishing.
They may seem different to your normal or 'traditional' skincare, but wipes also need to chosen carefully. You would wash your face with any old cleanser, so don't wipe your face with any old wipe either! The Bioré Gentle Makeup Removing Wipes with Green Tea are a top choice, especially for sensitive skinned types, thanks to their dermatologist and ophthalmologist approved status. Plus, they are made from 100% renewable, natural fibers, so it's not only the formula of the wipe that's gentle, but also the fabric of the wipe itself!
Any lover of nail colour knows that having remover on hand (pardon the pun) is nearly as important as building your polish wardrobe. I always have a case of the 4me Nail Polish Remover Padsin my handbag (along with a couple of nails colours) so I can switch up my mani anywhere and fast. Yes, I've become quite a pro at a quick and accurate paint job, if I don't mide saying so myself! These wipes are super hydrating and packed full of remover, so you only ever need a couple to remove paint from pinkies and every other nail in-between. Plus, they are acetone and alcohol free, so they won't irritate or dry out cuticles. I also like the LA Fresh Nail Polish Remover Wipesfor getaways. A couple of the little sachets in your cosmetics case will take up next to no room, but will certainly come in handy (again, pardon the pun!) when you spot chips in your mani and need to refresh fast.
No wipe round up could be complete without the Wotnot Facial Wipes Travel Case with Mirror(the best packaging for travel). You probably know why we love them buy now (they are a top seller in the bb online store) but just to remind you - they are 100% biodegradable, certified organic and the hard case is refillable with the regular packs. I love the included mirror - perfect for making sure you've removed every last bit of eye makeup that just doesn't want to budge!
And lastly, there's our other favourite, theYes to Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes 10 pack. These always live in my beach bag when I'm on holiday as they are perfect for wiping off old - and dare I say sweaty - sunscreen from your face before reapplication. A great way to helping to avoid blocked pores and oil build up. I also like keeping a pack in the freezer and swiping over my face after a big night out, or during a super hot summer day. The coolness combined with the cucumber is as refreshing as a icy lemonade!
