I hope that you all had a good Christmas and New Year (gosh that seems ages away now). I was lucky enough to visit New York for a week over New Year and did some beauty shopping, of course.
One of my purchases was these Burt's Bees Towelettes $6 and whilst I'm not a fan of facial wipes normally - they seem so harsh on the skin, I do like Burt's Bees so I knew I had to buy them.
Here's the description from the packaging:
- Removes dirt, oil and makeup without rinsing
- Dermatologist Tested
- Ophthalmologist Tested
- Natural Cloth FSC certified
They smell of White Tea Extract and it's a clean, sharp smell that I like it but if you don't you'll be put off because it's strong. The size is good (18cm x 20cm) and I can use just one wipe for a whole face of makeup, excluding eyes. I always use a separate eye makeup remover (at the moment Dermalogica Soothing Eye Makeup Remover) as I have very sensitive eyes. I can't guarantee these wipes would remove eye makeup completely but I think they would do a pretty good job.
There is a tiny bit of tingling after use which is the toning part and doesn't bother me, in fact it feels rather refreshing. I wouldn't recommend if you have very sensitive skin - you shouldn't be using wipes if you have!
I really like them and did buy another pack because I know they are not yet available in the UK but I'm sure they'll be coming some time soon.
