We’ve all been there. You’ve spent all day girlbossin’ at the J-O-B, and get home with just enough energy to put away every layer from your OOTD. You face plant onto your zillion-count sheets, ready for the sleep gods to whisk you away, then suddenly you remember the flawless face of makeup you applied just this morning. The only thing standing between you and some much-needed shut-eye is that dreaded pre-bedtime six-step skincare routine (why must it keep you from your sleeeeep?!?). Luckily, a walk down the skincare aisle (digital or IRL) will reveal a bunch of time-saving wonder wipes that will let you hit the pillow in no time and pass TF out already. Seriously, there’s a wipe for everything.
TO REMOVE YOUR MAKEUP
The key to smooth product application is flawless skin, and going to bed with your makeup on is a HUGE no-no. Remove your lipstick with Bite Beauty Lush Lip Wipes ($17), your eyeshadow and mascara with Sephora Collection Express Eye Makeup Remover Wipes ($9) and the rest of your makeup with Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($18).
TO WASH YOUR FACE
Reach for Burt’s Bees Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleansing Towelettes ($7) on those days when you forgo makeup but you still want your face extra fresh and clean. These wipes will ensure you go to bed without any pore-clogging grime lingering ’til morning.
TO EXFOLIATE YOUR FACE
Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate! With these Pond’s Cleansing and Exfoliating Towelettes ($7), you can do just that. The beads scrub away grime, the cucumber soothes and you’ll wake up with a fresh mug ready for makeup application.
TO MOISTURIZE YOUR FACE
It’s tempting to skip the moisturizer and just hit the pillow. Instead, use Pacifica Moisture Energize Serum Facial Wipes ($11) — your skin will thank you. The wipes will moisturize, firm and refresh your face — not to mention they’re also 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free.
Sometimes a shower just isn’t in the stars. To avoid being a Sweaty Betty rolled up in your duvet, give yourself a little refresh with Whish Deodorant Swipes ($7), which also slow down hair growth.
