Blûm Naturals Daily Cleansing and Makeup Remover Face Towelettes

I was recently sent these awesome facial towelettes from Blûm Naturals for review and I absolutely love them! Previously, I was such a huge fan of the Yes to Cucumbers Face Wipes, but now I think I am converting over to these! They are really convenient, have an awesome natural ingredient list that is all plant derived and they are nearly the same price as the ones from Yes to Cucumbers and just as refreshing!

Blûm Naturals Tea Tree Daily Cleansing & Make up Remover Towelettes for Combination to Oily Skin

I really enjoyed these tea tree towelettes because they help refresh my skin when it’s hot out, but the tea tree in them is a great antibacterial ingredient for me in the summer when I’m most likely to be breaking out a lot due to the heat.

 A lot of people online seem to be crediting this with helping to clear acne up. Although I don’t have enough breakouts at the moment to attest to that, I do know that the ingredients in this have been shown to be effective against acne. If nothing else, these really helps to mattify my skin and control oiliness when it gets super hot. It is also great for taking along in your bag when you’re at an amusement park on a hot day, I’ve found!

 Blûm Naturals Chamomile Daily Cleansing & Make up Remover Towelettes for Dry & Sensitive Skin

These towelettes are a bit less medicinal smelling than the tea tree ones and more relaxing and calming than anything. I really liked treating redness with these! They are just as refreshing as the tea tree, but they seem a lot more calming and mild. I definitely enjoyed them as well, but I found that my sister who has dry skin had more of a use for them than I did so I passed them along like the good sister that I am, of course! 😉

All in all, I enjoyed these facial towelettes a lot. I find that these are especially useful in the summertime as a refreshing pick me up or even to take on short overnight trips when I don’t feel like bringing everything but the kitchen sink with me. I definitely recommend these because they are so affordable and feature an awesome list of natural ingredients tailored to your skin type.

DIY Makeup Remover Facial Towelettes

I recently discovered this incredibly easy DIY recipe for Facial Towelettes on WhiteHouseBlackShutters and knew I had to try it for myself (and, of course, share it with you all!). The instructions below are adapted from hers, but I added my own flair to it with some tips of my own! You can use them for anything: as baby wipes, makeup remover wipes, easy cleanup wipes, or whatever you please. They are super economical and very handy!

I hope you all will try this and enjoy!

All you need is: 

  •  4 Cups Water
  • 1 Paper Towel Roll – Biodegradable one if you plan on flushing these!
  • Sulfate Free Soap (1 Pump or a Small Squirt)
  • 2 Round or Square Tupperwares
  • Essential Oils or Hydrosol of your choice (Optional)

First, you cut your paper towel roll in half.

I used a knife, but if you have durable scissors, you can probably use scissors if you like.

Put your two halves of the paper towel rolls to the side.

Then, mix your 4 cups of water with either a hydrosol of your choice (lavender, tea tree or sage are nice ones!), 5-10 drops of essential oil or perhaps some kind of tea, if you wish.

Though, if you decide to use a tea, your wipes may not last as long.

I personally used 10 drops of tea tree essential oil.

After this, mix in your squirt of sulfate free soap.

I used one squirt of my Astara Aromatic Seaweed Body Wash (See Review – here!) , but you don’t have to use body wash. You can use baby soap, sulfate free hand soap or whatever you have on hand.

Stir slowly so it doesn’t get foamy.

Next, you place each half of the paper towel roll, cut end down, in your two tupper wares.

Don’t worry if they seem too tall for the tupper ware; they shrink WAY down once you pour the water mixture on them.

Carefully pour your water mixture (2 cups each tupper ware) over your two paper towels until now water is left. Smash the paper towels down and close the tupper wares. Flip them over for a second to allow the liquid to drain back over the paper towels again then flip right side up again. Open the tupper wares and remove the cardboard tubing in the center of the rolls. Pull the paper towel from the center and there you have it!

Store them in the tupper wares and use as you please!

Enjoy!
