Face Cleansing Wipes

Many people love to use face wipes in lieu of a wash cloth there are many uses for them but its hard to find ones that leave the skin clean, residue free and yet remove all traces of makeup, oil, and dirt. If your wondering which brand too use or maybe you’ve tried a few and are still looking for the one that best suits you – well look no further than the Simone France Disposable Cleansing Cloths, these babies remove everything and if your wondering there are many ways to use them. I personally recommend using them if you go to the gym or after any workout because you can remove all the oil and sweat preventing clogged pores and breakouts.

Another reason they’re great is they have no product on them so if you love the skincare your presently using you don’t have to give it up. Here are some easy uses for these to save you some time: wash face at night with these and a mild cleanser to remove all the day’s dirt/oil/makeup. Use these with eye makeup remover to swipe over the eyes and remove all eye makeup without tugging on the delicate skin. Looking for another use, go ahead and put some toner on the cloth and wipe all over your face you’ll be surprised what comes off (even on clean skin). I love that they are so easy to travel with the cloths are small enough to pack and don’t take up much space, but provide an amazing job when your on the go.

If you need to stretch your budget then here are some suggestions: I will tell you right now these cloths can be used more than once (for those of you wondering) after washing with the cloth just rinse it out under warm water. I can get 3-4 uses if I am not removing heavy eye makeup. Another solution I have heard is to cut it in half some people then get double the amount of cloths essentially.

Share with me do you use cleansing cloths?

I admit it I love shopping for skin care and makeup, however I also love finding makeup that works time and time again and that I will keep in my repertoire. However, I am still on the search for the BEST mascara. So, I am turning to you I am hoping you will share with me what your favorite mascara is. The most important thing to me is that the mascara doesn’t flake, run, or smear (I don’t need any raccoon eyes during the day). I have actually worn 7 different mascaras this past week – I put on a new one every morning and left on until bed, but I am still hoping to find a new that I will like  so please share a comment with me on which brand you use.

Make up Brushes

Makeup brushes, most girls use them at some point whether its for foundation, blush, bronzer, concealer, shadow, you know the routine ladies… so now is a good time to talk about these makeup brushes. First, of all never buy makeup brushes that use animal hair – its just cruel.

I am sharing some Eco-friendly beauty brushes today, these are made of synthetic materials not animal fur (too many animals are captured & murdered each year at fur farms for the use in makeup brushes) no to mention who the hell ever thought animal fur was hygienic to be using in coordination with makeup anyways – (Can you say germs and bacteria) – gross!

Very few things in life are better synthetic than natural but brushes are one of them, synthetic brushes are easier to keep clean, have less shedding of strands in the brush, and don’t cause additional problems with your skin. Plus there are so many brands to choose from in everyone’s price point.

Here are makeup brushes that are vegan approved / cruelty free.

Please remember you don’t have to be a vegan to buy this brushes for yourself or others, its just doing the right thing.

Also, here is a list of brushes I have come across myself that are cruelty free:

You can check out these prior posts if you missed them here   That’s it for now, but if you use another company please post a comment I along with other readers would love to hear about it.

These brushes are by bdellium and are vegan & Eco-friendly. They retail for $35.53 + $4.99 S/H

You can purchase a complete set (like the one above) or individual brushes. Purchase your brushes here

Here is Eco-Tools makeup brushes, they retail online at Drugstore. com for $11.04

However, many stores now carry them so pick them up in person & save on the shipping. (I have seen them in my local Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, & where I purchased mine at Bed Bath & Beyond).

Many of us wear makeup daily, but few think about “greening” their beauty routine. While some of us are aware of ingredients to avoid in skincare and makeup often there are things in our daily routine which we overlook.
