Let me be honest – I love washing my face. I love the feel of cold water waking me up or removing the stress of the day. And I’ve never understood the trend for makeup wipes, until now. Here’s why.
I’ve had false lashes for a few months now and I love them but I really miss washing my face. I just couldn’t bring myself to buy facial wipes as, like you, I know how terrible they are for the environment – they are clogging up our sewers, creating floods of noxious waste, and triggering outbreaks of serious allergies.
Traditional wipes are usually made from a combinationof plastics, wood pulp and cotton often impregnated with a cocktail of harmful chemicals and a combination of alcohol, preservatives, fragrances, cleaning and moisturising agents. There’s no way I’m buying those.
And then Arbonne launched these amazing facial cloths.
These environmentally friendly, home compostable wipes are made with 100% Tencel which is a cellulosic fibre obtained from wood pulp. It’s fully recyclable even in your home compost bin so it’s win for you and for the environment too.
One wipe will remove makeup, sweat and pollution. There’s no need to rinse and they are perfect for all skin types, even sensitive skin, and won’t
dry or irritate skin.
So how do they do it?
They are Infused with mild botanical essences which will leave your skin cleansed, soothed, hydrated, and fresh with just one swipe.
At their heart they are a makeup that cares for your skin with moisturising botanicals
and age defying ingredients, enhancing what’s already there. They are an infusion of a

throughout the day too.
