Meet Jully Patel: an Indian-American beauty creator who spends the majority of her time jetsetting between her home in Atlanta, New York City for work, and whatever vacation destination has caught her eye. As you can imagine, she’s got her travel routine down to a science. We partnered with Patel and Burt’s Bees to discuss how the brand’s micellar facial towelettes have changed her skincare game.

What Are Burt’s Bees Facial Towelettes?

Made with 70 percent upcycled cotton from the scraps left over from textile manufacturing (hello, circular economy!), the towelettes are tree-free and certified home compostable by TUV Austria*. Plus Burt’s Bees is Leaping Bunny certified and this product is formulated without parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS. But they do contain micellar water, a purified water-based gentle cleanser that effectively removes makeup without stripping skin of helpful natural oils.

Also, unlike other cleansing wipes, these Burt’s Bees towelettes are non-greasy and don’t 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.

How Do Burt’s Bees Facial Towelettes Compare to Other Wipes?

“Other wipes I’ve used are quite harsh and leave my skin feeling dry and irritated,” says Patel. “The Burt’s Bees Facial Towelettes are gentle and leave my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated while still removing my makeup. They’re also very soft which makes them glide over my skin easily without tugging it. For me, it’s all about how gentle they are. I also love the rose water scent,” she says.

“I travel quite often for work,” says Patel. “So keeping facial towelettes on me is a game changer. I love using these at the airport and even on the plane, mid-flight. They’re an instant refresh. The one trick I love for good skin is making sure I remove my makeup before bed [and that] involves these towelettes. I keep them in my car so I can remove my makeup on the way home. This way, by the time I’m back, I can just wash my face, do my skincare and hop into bed. I know…incredible,” she shares.
