Inexpensive Organic Make-Up Remover Wipes
|April 23, 2012||Posted by under Green Living, Health & Beauty|
Right now, I am finishing up my make up wipes from the dollar store (Merida). A package of 25 costs me $1.25 therefore each wipe costs $0.05. Compared to other make up wipe prices, this is a very good deal. Since I can be a bit competitive with this frugal stuff at times, I was determined to find more eco-friendly wipes which weren’t going to break the bank.
This weekend, I purchased some Sensitive Skin Baby Wipes. They are Hypo Allergenic, No alcohol, no parabens, no perfume, nothing in there to mess up a baby’s bum! I am assuming that these wipes are ok for my face too. They even have chamomile in them. I tried one last night and was very impressed with the results. It took off way more than my other wipes and they are also softer and more moist. The wipes cost me $3.50 for 80 which works out to be $0.04 cents a wipe. My only issue? They are not organic but neither are my dollar store wipes.
Therefore, I decided to do more research and look for some reasonably priced organic baby wipes and found these Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes ($15/240 wipes). This works out to be 0.06/wipe but for organic and bamboo!? AMAZING price! Not only are these wipes unbleached & made with bamboo but they biodegrade within 21 days. They are also made with Aloe Vera, Chamomile & Tea Tree (anti-bacterial!), Green Tea Extract & Lavender. You can also buy the Aleva Ultra Sensitive Baby Wipes (which doesn’t have the tea tree or lavender) and includes Shea Butter, Aloe, Olive Oil and Chamomile. If you have oilier skin, the original wipes would be good. For my skin, the sensitive ones would be better as the Tea Tree would dry out my skin.
I’m sold. Although these cost me roughly a penny more per wipe than my dollar store ones, it is worth the extra as they are bamboo, unbleached and biodegradable.
Which ones do you use?
