Facial wipes are the ideal option when you're on the go or feeling lazy, but did you know many mainstream wipes can contain harsh chemicals? Here on Nourished Life we stock natural alternatives that cleanse and hydrate your skin! Free from many of the usual chemicals, we have wipes for every skin type!
If you read my blog often, then you will know just how much I love using products that are easy to use and work well too! Who doesn't love multi-functioning skincare and beauty products that are both quick and effective?! That's why I'm a huge fan of natural facial wipes. They really are the perfect option for when you're rushing out the door in the morning or just before bed when you're feeling a little too tired to wash your face. Being a busy mum, it happens to be more than I'd like to admit!
However, what I often find is that most mainstream facial wipes can be too drying or irritate my skin as well as contain chemcials such as sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) and parabens.
How do you use facial wipes?
Easily! All you need to do is take a single wipe and gently swipe it all over your face in circular motions. If you choose natural facial wipes you can even use them over your eyes because they are gentle enough for the sensitive skin in that area!
Which facial wipes are the best for your skin?
What I love most about the facial wipes available on Nourished Life is how they are directly targeted at specific skincare concerns. Those of us with dry skin have different skincare needs to those of us with oily or sensitive skin, so it is best to choose facial wipes cater for your specific needs.
Which facial wipes do I recommend?
Here on Nourished Life we proudly stock the Australian brand WOTNOT which have a great range of facial wipes targeted at specific skin types. These facial wipes are gentle, natural and ideal for a range of skin types. Their baby and skin care products are free from artificial fragrances, mineral oils, phthalates, soap, petrochemicals and parabens. They avoid using any ingredients that will irritate or dry out / strip the skin of natural oils! As a company WOTNOT is also passionate about sustainability and caring for the environment, which is good news for us natural beauty lovers!
If you have dry skin, then you can try the the WOTNOT Facial Wipes- Dry/Sensitive. Often people with dry and sensitive skin tend to steer clear of facial wipes because they typically make the problem worse. This is because many facial wipes contain chemicals that may irritate those with sensitive, extra delicate skin. These all natural facial wipes from WOTNOT are made with natural ingredients like rosehip and Aloe Vera which soothe the skin whilst cleansing! These organic ingredients can help hydrate dry skin to leave it looking calm and moisturised. These facial wipes are also safe enough to use on your eyes and even work to remove waterproof mascara!
If your skin is more on the oily side, then the WOTNOT Facial Wipes- Oily/Sensitive are ideal for you! Just because you have oily skin doesn't mean you need to use products that are overly harsh or stripping on the skin! These natural facial wipes are formulated for oily skin and are ideal for teens or those with acne prone skin. They have been created using ingredients like papaya and pink grapefruit which cleanse without irritating, and leave your skin hydrated and soft.
For all skin types you can't go past the Benecos Natural Care Happy Cleansing Wipes which are BDIH Certified Natural, vegan and so cost effective. Cotton based and infused with a natural blend of Aloe Vera, Mango & Orange they smell delicious and speedily remove your make up and the day's grime. In a pack of 25 they are 100% biodegradable.
For those who have skin that is neither too oily or too dry, but is very sensitive then I recommend using the WOTNOT Facial Wipes- Sensitive Skin. These wipes are perfect for when you are on the go! I like to keep a pack in my bag when I'm travelling because they come in a hard case with a built in mirror. How convenient is that! They are ultra soft, gentle and cleansing. Similar to other WOTNOT facial wipes, these wipes have been soaked in natural ingredients like sweet almond oil, jojoba oil and Aloe Vera.
