As I have mentioned before I have been trying out a lot of the Beekman 1802 products because I signed up for their quarterly subscription box. I loved getting the box as it is beautiful and everything looked lovely, but the box is only worth getting if I also like using the pretty, pretty products.
I will admit that the Beekman 1802 Facial Cleansing wipes weren’t my favorite item in the box. It isn’t that I don’t like cleansing wipes. I do. they are really convenient and great to have around. They are a very useful product to have around. However they are single use products and I have been trying to use fewer single use products.
I am a little relived though as these are 100% biodegradable. It makes the guilt less, but I am still trying to keep the habit of reusable.
It was actually difficult for me to ween myself off using facial cleansing wipes because they are a great convenience product. So I am torn about having them here. I like them but i don’t want to get back into the habit of using them. But they are here and so I will be using them. This pack is the unscented variety. The link will take you to the page where all of their various facial wipes are located and you can see the scents (including unscented) that are available.
I’ll admit the Honeyed Grapefruit is calling to me. I am trying to resist.
But more people should use grapefruit as a scent. I’m just saying.
These cleansing wipes have no scent. which is nice for general use. While I am using this for my makeup I did also use one to get what I think was jam off of a small child’s hands when i was asked to watch him for a moment. His mother said it was fine. There was no cleansing without permission. She didn’t notice he was sticky until the emergency pass over and these were designed for sensitive skin, unlike the soap that we currently had in the bathroom.
We’ll call that a victory for cleansing wipes.
Actually, I really enjoyed these wipes. The pack has 100 in them so they will last a while. The cloths were damp but not overly saturated. They are slightly textured do they were better able to remove makeup. And of course, they are convenient.
I did have to do a double cleanse. I went for my tube of cleanser after using this to remove the makeup, but it did do a good job of removing the bulk of the makeup without leaving any excess cleansing formula or stickiness behind.
And to be honest, while I am attracted to the scents on the website, I am happy with the unscented. The unscented worked out well for these. It makes them more multipurpose and so I feel more comfortable using them for things other than removing my makeup. (Like sticky fingers). The biodegradable makes me feel less guilty about the single use product.
While I will never go out and purchase these Facial Cleansing Wipes from Beekman 1802 and i really hope they aren’t a routine item in the subscription box, I am okay with using this one pack.it is a good product, it just happens to be one that I will not routinely buy.
