And you’d be right – kind of!
Are face wipes actually good for your skin? While cleansing face wipes aren’t a replacement for your daily skincare routine, they are a helpful tool that can really clean your skin (and remove makeup) when used properly.

I’ll also explain exactly what face wipes are, how to properly use them, and how to know which wipes are best for your skin type. And finally, we’ll take a look at the pros and cons of using face wipes and debunk some of the biggest myths about them.
