If you’re a woman who actually has sensitive skin, or at least you think you do, then here’s a beauty product for you. It’s one that will save you time, and keep your skin fresh and clean, whether you’re at the gym or about to go to sleep.
I’m talking about the new Comodynes Micellar Cleanser Towelettes ($7.50). Sorry if you thought I was going to tell you about the latest cream or serum-those are important too. But for someone who feels like there just isn’t enough time in the day, ahem-that would be me, then finding a good makeup wipe that won’t make your skin ache (or burn, or turn red, or flake), is pretty high up on the list of must-haves. After all, not removing makeup before bed or before a workout is one of the biggest mistakes we can make. And guess what? The two reasons why I tend to make that mistake are laziness or I don’t want to stir up a skin irritation.
That’s why I’m using these wipes. Made with 100 percent natural fibers and emollient plant extracts, they use a technology called micellar to gently remove makeup, while stimulating microcirculation in the skin and moisturizing it. Key ingredients include:
Phytelene complex: A fancy way of saying there’s calendula extract, hypericum perforatum extract, chamomile extract, tilia extract and cornflower extract.
Non-ionic surfactants: These clean the skin, while appreciating the hydrolipidic film (a combo of water and fat lipids that sit on the top layer of our skin) and pH balance.
Glycerin: This acts as a moisturizer and locks in hydration.
Plus, each towelette is paraben-, alcohol-, colorant- and allergen-free and come in a pack of 20, so you should have enough to last around a month (unless you use them every day which is quite possible). Just one note-I use these to wipe off all of my makeup, including my lip color, and like many towelettes, they do tend to leave a bitter aftertaste on your lips. But they have a lovely, light scent and won’t cause your skin to burn, which to me makes it worth it.
