Okay, I usually try to stay away from the “natural” cosmetics when I’m shopping because even though the products are better for me…the price isn’t. I felt a little frisky last week, and I decided to pick up these wipes from Alba Botanica. I didn’t have great expectations, but the packaging sounded convincing, really convincing. These are supposed to remove makeup, cleanse, and apply toner all at the same time! Oh, and let me mention the “pore purifying pineapple enzymes” and the aloe and awapuhi toner! The price was cheaper than the Neutrogena and Simple makeup remover wipes that I normally buy, too.
When I took the first towelette out, I was disappointed. It felt so thin and dry. I like my wipes to feel…saturated. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but still…I want to feel like I’m doing something to my face.
When I rubbed it against my face, it felt really nice. Nicer than any other wipe I’ve used, and it glided smoothly across my face. The smell is amazing! I definitely think of Hawaii (not that I’ve ever been there) and pineapple. My minimal makeup was gone, even my mascara. My face felt clean and just…Good!
I’m pretty much hooked on these towelettes and I’m already on my second bag. I love the feel, the smell, and my skin afterwards. I actually look forward to using these at the end of the day. My skin is even acting better, and I’m willing to bet that my Alba wipes had something to do with it. I purchased these babies at Walmart of course, for a little under 5 bucks! Each package contains 30 wipes. You can thank me later! I don’t know if I’ll try more Alba products, but I’m definitely sticking with these!
