Update: While Intrinsics are definitely still my favorite esthetics wipe, they’ve become pretty dang expensive on Amazon since their popularity took off. They’re literally half the price in professional stores… so I wanted to give you an Amazon alternative with Spa Essentials. They’re a good professional option, although I still prefer Intrinsics… but for those of you who can’t get a pro discount, they’re a great alternative!
I’m not talking about makeup-removing facial wipes some choose to use. Not that they don’t have a place, I try to use them before workouts but they shouldn’t be your primary cleansing solution. The facial wipes I’m referring to are typically sold to professionals, thanks to Amazon they’re easy to find. Get ready to say goodbye to your cotton pads and hello to some bomb ass esthetics Intrinsics wipes!
If you have products you’re applying with typical cotton, you’re wasting precious elixirs. Think P50 or any other liquid toner. Aside from the fact cotton pads fall apart and pieces get everywhere, they soak up a lot of product you’re using them with. Which means you’re burning through your favorite product a LOT faster than you should be. When I first started using P50 I noticed I was burning through the bottle fast using cotton pads and immediately went searching for my favorite esthetics wipes online, the same Intrinsics wipes I use every day at work.
Say hi to your new fave facial wipe from Intrinsics, peace out cotton pads!
I’ve tried other brands, they may even be slightly cheaper, but Intrinsics is the best. They hold their shape, absorb just enough, and they’re soft for sensitive skin. You won’t have pieces falling apart on your face. Really, they’re a solid product hovering at perfection. The price on Amazon fluctuates, each pack containing 200 wipes. It might seem expensive but when you think about how much product you save, it’s worth it.
I purchase large 4×4’s because I can use them with water and remove face masks, cleanser, etc, or I can cut them into a smaller 2×2 size for toner and eye makeup remover. There are plenty of other uses to get creative with, like using damp wipes over masks to keep them moist or using them for removing product like masks. They’re perfect for those with sensitive skin, they’re super soft and prevent irritation you may experience from a rough washcloth. If you don’t want to be bothered with modifying your wipes go for the 2×2 size, which is totally fine for most people. It’s much like your cotton pad in size.
