Even though our trip to Amsterdam isn’t till April, I’m starting to think about what to take with me in terms of cosmetics. Though I always like to buy beauty products when I travel, it’s helpful to arrive with at least the basics. So makeup remover is something I know I’ll need, but I’d like to travel light. Makeup wipes, right?
A couple of weeks ago, I received a package from Derma E, a wonderful natural and affordable skincare brand. It had a bunch of goodies in it including prebiotic powder that you mix with water from a brand wittily called Regular Girl, three different masks that I’ll review another time, and a package of Derma E Hydrating Facial Wipes with Hyaluronic Acid.
I’ve been using Derma E Hydrating Cleanser with HA for a few months, and it made my Best of 2017 Skincare list, so how nice to get to try the Hydrating Facial Wipes. They’re perfect for a double cleanse routine that I favor, and they’d be great to take to Amsterdam. I thought about saving them for the trip, but that’s 10 weeks away (wow, only 10 weeks!) so I didn’t want to wait. If I like them, I can always buy more.
So do I like them? Yes, I do. With hyaluronic acid, they’re perfect for winter to help my skin soak up and keep the moisture!
The wipes are made from soft fiber that I discovered is compostable (so once the snow melts, I could go outdoors and add them to the compost pile in my backyard?). They are scented, but the fragrance is very light and fresh. They do a great job removing my makeup without tugging and without having to go over the same area a million times. They remove my eye makeup, and they don’t irritate my overly sensitive eyes.
The wipes are pre-moistened, of course, and they contain a lot of plant extracts that deliver antioxidants from super fruits as well as hyaluronic acid in the absorbable form sodium hyaluronate. As I mentioned earlier, I do a double cleanse at home: I remove my makeup first and then follow up with a separate cleanser. When I travel, I may not always do the second step. The Derma E Hydrating Wipes with hyaluronic acid will be perfect to give me some extra moisturizing while I’m on the go. Maybe I won’t have to bring HA serum with me either since I won’t rinse the HA off. I’ll use up this pack that contains 25 wipes, and then pick up another pack before we go.
I also think the wipes will be great for summer to use to freshen up after jogging. And for those of you who go to a gym, they’d be perfect to put in your gym bag.
Derma E Hydrating Facial Wipes, priced at $7.99, are available on the Derma E website, at Ulta Beauty, Walgreens, and other retailers. Thanks, Derma E, for turning me on to these super-soft, hydrating, makeup removing wipes!
