When you think of towelettes, does your mind still goes to those lemony scented wipes that were a big part of degreasing sticky, dirty, fingers. If so, it’s high time you get on board and embrace today’s wipes. They’re super convenient and can replace virtually any beauty product taking up precious space on your shelves, plus there’s no chance of them spilling and ruining your favorite bag–they’re mess-free!
Beauty wipes can be used for your face, body, hair and are even used off-label on keyboards, dirty dogs and so much more. They are lightweight and small enough to be portable making them ideal for travel and touchups on the go. Here, 7 ways to simplify your beauty routine and your life:
Adventuress Skincare Swipes ($19 – $38) are a collection of cleansing, moisturizing, and sunscreen towelettes, individually wrapped for easy on-the-go skincare anytime, anywhere. All are packaged in a proprietary sealed finger pocket. Simply peel back the label and swipe on your skin. Try: Naturally Liberating Cleanser ($24 for 24), a soothing, creamy cleanser ideal for sensitive and mature skin, Boldly Nourishing Moisturizer ($38 for 24) formulated with antioxidants, Vitamin C and hydrating ingredients and YouVee SPF30 Sunscreen Swipes ($33 for 24), water resistant and gentle enough for sensitive skin. You can sample all three in The Weekender ($19 for 3 of each product), ideal for weekend jaunts.
Nunzio Saviano Anti-Frizz Hair Sheets ($18 for 12 ) were created as a simple and effective way to immediately combat frizz, flyaways and static. Just swipe hair from roots to ends and non-sticky polymers add light hold while coconut oil delivers incredible shine and luster for immediate fresh- from-the-salon style.
Japonesque Individual Pro Makeup Artist Wipes ($12.50 for 20) gently and easily dissolve dirt, grime and makeup — even waterproof — while nourishing and hydrating with Vitamin E.
L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes ($12 for 6) simplifies your self-tan. Infused with self-tanner, Vitamin E and Alpha Hydroxy Acid skin, each sheet has enough for one application so skin is left smooth, soft and two shades darker than your natural skin tone.

Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Daily Refreshingly Clean Cleansing Cloths ($10 for 25) harness the power of witch hazel, beloved for its many properties: it’s a great astringent, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps treat blemishes, can reduce puffiness around the eyes, prevent razor burn, soothe sunburn, ease itching from bug bites and contact dermatitis and so much more. These large, soft cloths are non-drying. Use them to clean, tone, refresh and remove excess dirt, oil and makeup.
