There are only a few things aside from makeup-removing wipes that we can’t live without (seriously, they’re right up there with serum and SPF). Not only are they a godsend on those occasional nights when you’re just too tired to properly wash your face, they’re a makeup-bag must for midday touch-ups. But since not all wipes are created equal when it comes to your complexion’s unique needs, we broke down the best ones by skin type. Add one of these to your routine for endless utility and some additional post-use benefits.
Give Your Skin What It Needs
Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes
For Dry Skin
These vitamin E-infused cleansing towlettes are ideal for dry complexions because their texture gently removes dirt, oil, and even the most stubborn makeup without overdrying. Bonus: they work wonders for prepping skin before makeup application too, leaving behind a clean, smooth, radiant canvas.
Bear Naked Wipes
For Sensitive Skin
If your skin gets irritated easily, consider these a game-changing addition to your medicine cabinet. They’re formulated without fragrance, parabens, or sulfates (which are known to cause irritation), and contain aloe vera, chamomile, and cucumber to calm and soothe skin.
Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes
For Combination Skin
These refreshing wipes erase traces of makeup while combating oily zones and providing antiaging benefits. Antioxidant-rich pomegranate in these wipes tone and tighten skin for a flawless complexion.
Cleansing Water Cloths
Koh Gen Do
For Oily Skin
There’s a reason these mineral-rich cleansing cloths are a bit pricier (not to mention a total cult favorite on the rise). The oil-free formula removes surface residue and makeup while toning, nourishing and restoring a healthy oil balance in the skin.
Makeup Remover Biodegradable Wipes
For Acne-Prone Skin
A wipe that’s ultra-gentle yet effective at removing blemish-causing dirt and oil is essential for acne-prone skin. These fit the bill, with cornflower extract that refines and decongests pores while simultaneously soothing already-inflamed breakouts.
