I experienced what can only be described as a euphoric scent-sory experience the other day with a Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelette ($6 for a pack of 30). El Hub walked in on me while I was holding one of them up to my nose and breathing deeply (smells like those cucumber water drinks you get at a fancy shamncy spas). I must have looked like Gollum from Middle Earth, cradling my little precious…
These softer-than-soft wipes are the latest additions to the Yes To ______ line of organic eco-friendly skin and hair products.
I think the company’s pretty cool, especially when they release something I really like.
The biodegradable cloths say “yes to” removing face and eye makeup without the need for water, but with the help of skin softening cucumber, aloe vera and exfoliating minerals collected from the Dead Sea.
Soft, they are, but they’re still able to cut through foundation, powder, blush and lipstick with ease. Eye makeup, however, is another story. I find myself having to use a second wipe to remove eyeshadow, liner and mascara, and, to take care of waterproof stuff, I give it a little help from Bliss Lid + Lash.
These also have the nice side effect of making my skin feel great, and even though they aren’t the most thoroughly efficient makeup wipes I’ve ever used, I like the scent, the price and the company’s groovy organic vibe.
