You know those days when you're out at about and you feel icky, hot, and sweaty? Perhaps you've just left the gym and have errands to do, or perhaps you live in Tennessee and it's mid July. Whatever the situation you're stressed because you don’t have time to wash your face and revive yourself.
Those days are the worst, to me it’s like slow torture...lets just say I wouldn’t be a good Southerner. When I do find myself in those situations the only thing that helps is to rinse my face. Typically I would run to find a bathroom and splash my face with water. But then I am left with overly dry skin because I don't tote around moisturizer in my purse. The rest of the day is spent trying to move my face as little as possible because I can feel it cracking away from the dryness each time I smile. Those days suck, right?
Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths
Well, those sweaty days will suck no longer my green beauties. Kaia, has come up with a great non-toxic solution for just those times. Their Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths are perfect for removing dirt and grime plus leaving an even level of moisture to last through the day.
The Kaia Juicy Bamboo Cleansing Cloths are a soft 100% bamboo cloth that’s soaked with a mixture of honey, jojoba oil, citrus essential oil blend, and sunflower oil. They come in convenient prepackaged one wipe pouches or a small container of 30 (like the ones shown), and are $15.50.
The full ingredient list is as follows:
water, honey, sorbitan laurate, sunflower seed oil, hydrolyzed jojoba esters, glycerin, decyl glucoside, polyglyceryl-4 laurate, dilauryl citrate, xanthan gum, citric acid, dehydroacetic acid, benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoatean, citrus tangerina, citrus aurantifolia, citrus grandis
I must confess at first glance the ingredient list didn’t look suitable to me. However, I did some pretty thorough research and have concluded that these are safe and non-toxic.
My experience with these wipes has been nothing but positive. I have used them both to freshen up during the day and at night for my cleanser. First off the wipe itself is very soft and light, and actually 100% biodegradable. They remove light levels of makeup and takes away all dirt and daily residue. Plus, the best part is the oils and honey leave a light level of moisture behind. The formula allows for a very gentle cleansing experience, suitable for every skin type.
Being on the smaller size, about the size of the palm of my hand, I use both sides and every inch of the wipe. Immediately after I can see the effects of the day on the discolored wipe, and my skin feels great. Its soft, lightly hydrated, and clean. These are the only non-toxic cleansing cloths I have used, really love, and recommend. Being that they are convenient, gentle, effective, and green I am sold. So all you gym lovers, yogis, humid weather dwellers, and moms on the go this is the wipe for you. Available here.
