Until a few months ago, I hardly cared about cleansing wipes or towelettes, but I was a firm convert once I started using cleansing towelettes from Alba Botanica. When I was falling short of meeting the free shipping requirements during one of my recent online shopping sprees, the only thing that came to my mind to fill the gap was cleansing towelettes 😛 And that’s how I ended up buying the Retinol Anti-aging Cleansing Towelettes. Read on to find out more.
$5.99 for 30 towelettes.
These towelettes gently exfoliate the skin while they soothe, protect and restore pH balance. Used daily, Anti-Aging Cleansing Towelettes help prepare your skin for the Retinol Skincare Anti-Aging Regimen.
- Exfoliates and helps improve skin texture.
- Antioxidant Protection helps diminish the signs of aging.
Directions To Use:
Gently use towelettes to cleanse, tone and remove make-up and impurities. Reseal package to prevent towelettes from drying out. Dispose of used towelettes in trash. Avoid contact with eyes. Recommended for all skin types.
My Experience with Retinol Anti-Aging Cleansing Towelettes:
Packaging: The towelettes come in a light brown packaging. The packaging is similar to other wipes/cleansing cloths and is pretty handy. It has a flap which needs to be opened to pull out a towelette. Care needs to be taken to close the flap correctly or else you will end up losing all moisture from the towelettes.
Fragrance: The towelettes have a mild refreshing fragrance. It smells almost like some of those men’s aftershave lotions, but I still like it 😛 Those of you who do not like the aftershave smell, don’t worry as the towelettes have a pretty mild smell. Also, the smell does not linger on your face once you are done cleaning.
Texture/Performance: The towelettes are white in color and the sheets are big enough to cover the face and neck. The sheet feels wet and cooling on the skin when you start to cleanse using it. It is pretty effective in cleaning away all makeup and any grime accumulated on the face throughout the day. It leaves your skin clean, refreshed and soft. It is quite gentle on the skin and does not irritate the skin at all. It does not leave any residue on the face and you can skip washing your face after you use this.
I cannot comment on the anti-ageing claim, as I did not see any visible results, but maybe I haven’t used it for a long enough period.
To summarize, these cleansing towelettes are pretty handy to remove makeup and clean your face thoroughly when you do not have the time or the avenue to wash your face with water.
Pros of Retinol Anti-Aging Cleansing Towelettes:
- Convenient to use.
- Cleans thoroughly.
- Very gentle on the skin.
- Refreshing fragrance.
- Does not leave behind any residues.
- Handy packaging.
Cons of Retinol Anti-Aging Cleansing Towelettes:
- Contains parabens.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Retinol Anti-Aging Cleansing Towelettes?
I would not call it a must-have product as you can always clean your face with water and face wash. But, if you want to try out some cleansing cloths, you can surely try these out. I might not repurchase, but will try towelettes from some other brand.
