Don’t Throw The Towel In (just yet)! Cleansing Wipes Are Better than Ever!


Cleansing wipes for makeup removal and problem skin have shown up on every grocery isle of cosmetics but now they have made them better and offer more flexibility. Great for home (some of us that might be lazy after girls night out) and especially for the travel minded, no TSA worries.

There is everything imaginable available in little mess-free, carry-on towelettes. Sunblock to self-tanner is available so bring your lazy self and get with it! So it’s not just for sudsing your face anymore (which as you know I think you should do every night anyway).

First up the basics, you can’t go wrong with “Yes to Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes” they sooth even sensitive skin and have alo vera for hydration great at only $5.99


  Neutrogena Oil-Free Pink Grapefruit Cleansing Wipes $7.50 salisicylic acid is the acne fighter and a wonderful anti-ager at the same time, Win Win!

OleHenriksen Truth to Go Wipes $15.00  infused with Vitamin C such a great skin brightener and anti-oxidant .

Next- which you know I’m going to yell about, Sunscreen (even if it isn’t summer) Supergoop! SPF 30+ Sunscreen Swipes with Zinc $34.00 safe for sensitive skin, great for travel or in the car. No mess application makes this a do!

Image L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes for Body. $10.49 and guarantee a streak free glow!

Don’t forget about your hair while on the go, Ted Gibson Hair Sheet towelettes $25.00 condition and refresh unwashed hair in a jiffy. It is a bit pricy but perfect for your travel bag so I would consider this if you are going on a long trip.

Goes to show that you don’t need to “throw in the towel” throw on the towel because these all are great conviences for an active lifestyle (or a lazy one too Lol!) Kattails Up! (we like).



Makeup Bag Makeovers

ImageMake up bag make overs! It’s a new season time to do it!
* Anything with heaps of glitter: Subtle shimmer is flattering, but gobs of glittery makeup over wrinkles is the same as screaming, “Look at me! Look at me!” Not the effect you’re looking for.
* Anything too chalky and dry: A soft, touchable texture is the key to making up a younger-looking face. So long dusty, chalky powder and, dry, matte lipstick!
* Anything in little-girl pastels: Still attached to baby-blue and cotton-candy-pink palettes? Donate them to your daughter. Those colors might look young but that doesn’t mean that they’ll make you look younger.
