Last year, a mysterious ingredient called squalane was suddenly booming in the beauty industry, and once we learned its benefits, we weren't a bit surprised. We dubbed squalane as the next major skin-saving ingredient (in fact, an eye cream infused with the stuff could barely stay in stock at Sephora). Well, now it's a new year full of fresh beauty launches—and it turns out, the hero ingredient does a great job in the cleansing department as well. Makeup artist and green beauty expert Katey Denno swears by Biossance's Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Cloths.

If you're wondering what makes these face wipes stand out from the rest, it's their ability to moisturize while cleansing. As Katey puts it, "The act of beginning your moisturizing while cleansing is brilliant." You can go from a full face of makeup to a clean slate in seconds, without stripping your skin of essential oils. Plus, these condition your eyebrows and eyelashes. It might be time to put your makeup wipes aside and give these a shot. If they're good enough for the pros, they're certainly good enough for us.
