Say Goodbye To Face Wipes As You Know Them
It’s happened to all of us...
We come home after a night out or even just a long day and can’t be bothered to wash our face, such an easy task I know, but one that seems so labourious after a long day.
For a long time facial wipes have had a bad reputation clogging pipes and adding to our growing waste problem, which means that with every night time wipe comes a little bit of guilt… but this may soon be a thing of the past.
Recently the government has made a vow to eradicate our dear old friends by 2025, as being made up of 93% polyester means that that they aren’t exactly the friendliest of beauty products, which is why we were excited to read about some new eco-friendly wipes in this week’s Stylist.
These new wipes are biodegrable and come in recyclable packaging so welcome to feeling slightly less guilty about skipping your night-time routine. This post was inspired by The Stylist so if you want the full low down be sure to check out their website!
