Nontoxic Makeup Removing Towelettes


For me, it took awhile to find the right nontoxic makeup removing towelette. It seems like I’ve tried every natural brand of towelette that’s made: Burt’s Bees (sensitive and regular), Yes To (all kinds), Alba, etc. Each one of them made my eyes sting like crazy, so of course I stopped buying them.

Within the Blum Naturals line, there are several variations on the towels for different skin types. The Tea Tree Oil wipes for oily skin is one that I haven’t tried because I have normal to dry skin, so it really wouldn’t make sense for me to use it.

The ones I like best are Chamomile and Aloe & Cucumber. The makeup comes off pretty easily with both of them, they have a pleasant smell, they come in a resealable package of 30, and a reasonable price ($5-$8 for 30 wipes). No nasty ingredients like synthetic fragrances, parabens, etc. so they pass the non-toxic test.

The Orange Peel towelette is for exfoliation.  It was very difficult to get my makeup off with that one and the exfoliating side that was too rough for my skin.  On a positive note, the smell was wonderful.

The Chamomile is for sensitive skin, so if that’s you, this is the best one. It has a very mild smell from the chamomile, and is really gentle on the skin.

The Cucumber & Aloe is for normal skin, has a slightly perfume-y (but not overwhelming) smell, and is gentle on the skin. If you prefer very mild odors you might not like this one.  Personally, I’m fine with it, because Blum Naturals does not use synthetic fragrances so I know that smell isn’t going to mess with my hormones like synthetic fragrance will.

Bottom line is that these Blum Naturals towelettes are effective and reasonably priced. I love them!  I hope you find this review helpful.  Thanks for reading!
