Korres Cleansing and Makeup Removing Wipes: Where have they been all my life? I long ago abandoned the idea of merely wiping my face clean with drugstore wipes. They just didn’t get the job done – I needed industrial strength exfoliation to keep from breaking out.
Until I picked these little gems up at the recent NYC Bloggin’ Beauts event. . . “Ooh, I love these!” exclaimed a fellow blogger. “They make my face feel so soft.” I remained skeptical. Later that night, exhausted after a long day of traveling and work, I paled at the thought of getting up, walking to the bathroom, and washing my face. I just couldn’t be bothered to do anything but sleep. And yet . . . there in my bag, these wipes whispered softly: “Use us. We’re better than nothing.” I was convinced. I grabbed a wipe, whisked off my makeup, resolved to deal with the resultant acne in the morning, and promptly passed out.
But lo! In the morning I had no pimples to deal with. In fact, my skin looked pretty darn good. I took a closer look at the wipes, only to find they contain a bevy of good things: Tannins, to shrink pores, and vitamin E to soften and protect. And not a drop of oil, hence the clear canvas that stared back at me from the mirror. Korres Wipes won’t replace a regular skincare regimen, and they don’t remove waterproof makeup, but when you need to clean up in a hurry, they’ve got you covered.
