Do Your Face Wipes Cleanse, Hydrate and Remove Makeup? These Do All 3

McKenzie Cordell for PureWow

We’re always on the lookout for ways to be more efficient. A blowdryer that also straightens hair? No brainer. A pan whose handle is a spoon rest? Sign us up. So, when we learned of a makeup wipe that not only removes products from your face, but also cleanses and hydrates, our interest piqued.

Normally we wouldn’t sing the praises of a humble wipe so enthusiastically, but the Burt’s Bees Micellar Towelettes don’t require anything more than a swipe—no extra splash of water on your face or the feeling that you need to load up on moisturizer. This makes them ideal for frequent travelers, gym goers and the sleepy girlies who can’t wait to hit the hay. Scroll for a few more reasons why they really do deserve a spot in your bathroom vanity.

Made with 70 percent upcycled cotton from the scraps left over from T-shirt manufacturing (hello, circular economy!), these wipes are tree-free and Leaping Bunny certified, plus they’re certified home compostable by TUV Austria*. They’re also formulated without parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS, but they do contain Micellar water, a purified water-based gentle cleanser that effectively removes makeup without striping skin of helpful natural oils.

Also, unlike other cleansing wipes, these Burt’s Bees towelettes are non-greasy and never leave an oily residue. They do the hard job of multitasking to leave your skin feeling fresh with just a swipe, so you can spend less time at the sink and more time getting on with your day.
