Not to be confused with baby wipes, the new breed of towelettes are smart, practical, and made just for mom
It’s hard to find a job that baby wipes can’t do. From cleaning hands, faces, and bottoms, to wiping down a dirty restaurant table, they just might be the smartest, most practical mom-friendly invention after the stroller. So it’s no surprise that more sophisticated wipes, made just for moms, won our hearts. The best thing about a skincare wipe is that you can basically “wash” your face with it wherever and whenever without having to be in front of a sink. Perfect for the mom who wants to cleanse thoroughly and still have time to read her little one a bedtime story. —Melissa Schweiger
The secret to these soothing towelettes is the micellar technology. Micelles are a cluster of molecules that grab anything that’s not water, such as dirt and debris, from the skin. Combine that with a cocktail of flower extracts to decongest the skin and you get a thorough cleanse that's gentle enough for the sensitive eye area. Not in the mix? Parabens, alcohol, or suspected allergens.
Free of all the nasties (fragrance, parabens, and petrochemicals), these argan oil-infused wipes get rid of makeup the natural way. They’re even biodegradable! We love throwing the travel-sized pack in our diaper bags.
Made specifically for stressed-out skin (which basically means it’s a mom must-have!), these cloths are infused with gentle cleansing and anti-inflammatory ingredients. Also in the mix is white willow bark, which contains salicylic acid that helps prevent breakouts.
These genius wipes leave the skin brighter and happier thanks to lemon peel and apple. The namesake blueberries are amazing antioxidants that help keep fine lines at bay. The best thing about these guys is they also moisturize the skin, so they’re truly an all-in-one product!
