What's the scoop?
To me, cleansing wipes always seemed like an unnecessary product. A product used only by the less than savvy, perhaps even lazy. I was wrong. As it turns out, people who like to use cleansing wipes are looking for an effective product that doesn't take a lot of time to use. They want a product that they can use anywhere and anytime (even when they're half asleep and don't want to be bothered or worse-woken up by the cold splash of water). I get this.
. Its ingredients are simple (in a good way) and to the point. The way it felt was a big surprise. It starts out refreshing and cool and finishes with a clean, non-greasy (but moist) feel. Honestly, I could not tell that I hadn't just washed my face the "old fashioned" way. I was clean as a whistle and ready to continue with the rest of my routine.
Yes. Be thorough. This is your chance to get every nook and cranny. Actually, a hidden benefit of this product is how you're much more likely to effectively cleanse often neglected parts of the face and surrounding areas; such as the hairline, around the ears, lip line, neck and décolleté (upper chest) even shoulders and back. Make sure that you use every side and edge of the wipe to get your money's worth. No need to rinse!
Keep in mind; this is the first step of your routine. At the very least, you will want to follow it with a hydrating toner and/or a moisturizer to avoid tightness and dehydration.

Inside this cleanser, much to my surprise, I found two new friends and one old time buddy. Hibiscus Flower Extract is added for a bit of exfoliation, Babassu Oil to moisturize and soothe and Sodium Hyaluronate (aka Hyaluronic Acid), one of my all-time favs, used to hydrate. Here's the run down on each.
Hibiscus Flower Extract contains high levels of Pyruvic Acid (referred to by experts as a "second generation" alpha hydroxy acid). Pyruvic Acid seems to be better adapted to stimulate cell regeneration without any irritation, acting like salicylic acid (BHA) by dissolving proteins which are responsible for cell adhesions. It has effectively been shown to increase cell turn over in a similar way to lactic acid (AHA) while providing a much deeper hydration (these properties are enhanced by the formula's inclusion of the AHA Citric Acid). In addition, the polyphenols (super-powerful antioxidants) found in Hibiscus Flower Extract stimulate collagen production and cell regeneration. In summary, this marvelous ingredient works with all skin types as it addresses aging, dull skin tone and impurities, provides skin lightening, healing and hydrating benefits.
Babassu Oil has physical characteristics and uses very similar to that of Coconut Oil. Both Babassu oil and coconut oil are great moisturizing options for those with sensitive skin. Unlike coconut oil, Babassu oil doesn't leave you feeling like a grease ball (and importantly is noncomedogenic). It actually leaves a cooling sensation on skin. Babassu oil works especially well to soothe skin irritations like eczema or itchy, inflamed skin.
Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid) is a highly effective humectant (water-binding ingredient) that has the ability to fill the spaces between the connective fibers (collagen and elastin) creating a (superficial) plumping effect. Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid) is used for moisturization and wound healing and is comprised of small molecules that penetrate the skin easily, and can hold up to 1000x their own weight in water. Because the skin naturally loses its water composition as it ages Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid) can replace some of the water lost in the dermis, and potentially fight wrinkles and other signs of aging.
