Cleansing wipes: it’s okay to be lazy
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from reading a ton of beauty blogs over the years, it’s that it’s frowned upon to admit to using cleansing wipes at all, but especially to remove your makeup at night. Wipes are for festival weekends, intense gym sessions, and beauty emergencies only, and if you dare use them, well, you better follow up with the best moisturizer money can buy.
The thing is, wipes are convenient. They’re folded up nicely inside their package, soaked through with the perfect amount of cleanser, just waiting to be used. It may not be the best option available, but sometimes it’s the only thing I have energy for.
So I’m going to say it. For the past three days, and not for the first time this month, I’ve removed my makeup with the ACURE Coconut + Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes* ($6.99). Because they were there, because I was sitting on my bed watching Call the Midwife and I didn’t want to move, because sometimes it’s okay to be a little bit lazy.
ACURE Coconut + Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes review
I’ve been testing the ACURE Coconut + Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes for about a month, on and off. They come in an attractive teal package with a plastic lid that keeps the wipes fresh and wet, even a few weeks after opening. They smell pleasantly of coconut and they feel refreshing. The fabric has a good exfoliating grip, but the cleanser is gentle and doesn’t sting or burn. They’re also vegan, sulfate-free, and paraben-free.
And more importantly, the ACURE Coconut + Argan Oil towelettes make my life easier when it feels like I might never have the strength to move from my bed again.
I have every type of cleanser you can think of. I have drugstore cleansers, fancy cleansers, foaming cleansers, milky cleansers, balm cleansers, and my beloved oil cleansers. I have them all, and I love them and what they can do for my skin.
But once in a while, I love sitting in bed and taking off my makeup while watching Netflix more than I love an elaborate skincare routine, and the ACURE Coconut + Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes are a great option for lazy days.
My skin is doing fine, btw.
