I am very much sold on these babies! They are best used when doing a sweaty activity and thrown into a purse or gym bag.
- Soft towel, but still scrubby (allows you to feel clean without irritating skin)
- Scent is really pleasant (love the tropical scent, especially since it’s not so intense when you’re out)
- Portable (can throw into a gym bag or purse)
- Residue (Can leave some people feeling a little greasy after, but I would at least try a travel sized pouch and see if it’s a problem for you)
- Can be a little itchy/irritating (if you have sensitive skin, try a travel size before investing a full-sized pouch)
I have said it in previous reviews and I’ll say it again – I am the mom friend. I am the friend with bandages and juice boxes and extra chargers in anticipation of always being prepared. One of the areas I fail on this front is gym preparedness; for some reason, I forget essentials like deodorant and rubber bands so often that I often use that as the excuse not to work out. I absolutely hate having sweat in my face, but towels don’t feel the best against my sensitive skin and leave me feelings scummy. I have used facial wipes in the past, but either because of an acne-fighting ingredient in the packaging or because of an additive used for scent, the caused really bad rashes and burning during use
I first used C&C’s Wiped Tropical Face Wipes during a particularly intense yoga session and I’m pretty much sold on these babies. I really like how soft the towels are while still maintaining an almost scrubby texture that makes you feel like you’re really getting grime off on the go. I also really liked the smell – it definitely had a different take on the tropical scent, but in a good way! In my opinion, the wipes had a definite coconut smell mixed with subtle banana and almost berry hints. One of my friends said it smelled a little like apple to him, but the takeaway is that 1) They’re gentle, yet effective, and 2) They aren’t sterile and overpowering, nor do they smell like medication.
The only downside to these wipes that I personally found was that they left a sort of greasy feeling after use, which the product says won’t occur – however, I feel like this isn’t an oil or grease but just a moisturizing agent that helps prevent dry-out like some of the medicated face wipes on the market have. Given I found these best used when doing a sweaty activity and thrown into a purse or gym bag, this is hardly an issue at all (in my opinion)
