Travel Beauty Innovations Week at The Beauty Closet!
With the Holidays this week and soon approaching in December, I thought it would be a great idea to share with all of you some of my top innovative beauty products & brands that are designed for the traveler in mind! Travelling these days- especially if you will flying or by rail for example, can be quite challenging...just getting to your destination can bring forth a whole multitude of issues. There are times that no matter how much planning we might do, there are unplanned events that occur and that's why planning things out well ahead of time will be one of your best travelling strategies. When it comes to beauty specifically, taking these items with you during travel can also be a bit of a challenge.
Most products and brands offer up full-sized versions of your favorite item, but they often don't offer up travel-sized versions...and if they do, they can be seriously over-priced, difficult to find, or not really in your budget when you've already purchased to the full size item. That's where I come in ;) Here at The Beauty Closet, I aim to provide my readers with real solutions, tips & tricks, and products that actually work- but won't break the bank! That's just what I'm doing here today, with this week's Top Travel Beauty Innovations Week and today's fav recommended product picks from Kleenex's facial cleansing collection! Be sure to check out 3 of their best, inexpensive, and portable items from the collection, below:
The Beauty Closet Recommends:
Facial Cleansing Wipes
Let me start off by stating that I'm beyond picky when it comes to facial wipe in general and that's mostly due to the fact that my skin is not only break-out & acne-prone, it's also a bit on the sensitive side. As a result, many wipes out on the market currently, don't really cut it for me as they either are cheaply made and cause my face to pores to clog and my face to break out as well...or they cause my face to itch or burn...or they don't do much at all- that means it takes tons of wipes just to remove dirt, oil, & makeup. What you end up with is a wipe that is far from effective and is super time-consuming as well. That's a real bummer and makes it taking with you for travel purposes even more perplexing!
Luckily, Kleenex nailed all the issues of facial cleansing wipes of the past with these and you will see and notice the difference with your first usage of this product. Kleenex does an excellent job here of providing not only a quality product, but one that's effective and great for all skin types- it's also super portable and perfect for travel! Each Kit comes with a dispenser and refill pack that contains 25 wipes- you can also snag refills for around the same pricing at their site or just at about any mass retailer for around the same pricing as the above kit with dispenser.
However, you can manage to save around 10% with Kleenex directly if you purchase from their site and go for their auto refill program which offers up free shipping AND the discount :0 Alcohol-free, dermatologist-tested, portability, and affordability make these wipes a must-have for travel or just for a handy way to remove makeup at home too! I love that there's a light, yet pleasant scent to the wipes, they don't hurt your skin, and they don't cause your skin to dry out.
This is my favorite item out of the Kleenex facial cleansing collection and it really stands out for it's quality for the price and effectiveness. Plus, it's super easy to use- you don't have to be an expert or 'get the hang of it' to master these! The easy-to-use exfoliating cushions contain the product built right into each pad and it just takes a bit of gentle rubbing with your fingers to get things going as you mix it in with a bit of water to suds up the product. What you end up with is a sudsy mixture of exfoliating goodness that leaves your skin rejuvenated, smooth, and soft!
Each pad contains two sides: one side contains tiny white raised white bumps and the other side contains blue indented bubbles. The white side is perfect for the more sensitive areas of the skin and also for providing the finishing polishing effects- after utilization of the blue bubbled exfoliation side designed for deeper cleansing. Comes in a refillable container and arrives as a set with a refill inside [as pictured above]. As portable as this product is, it's great for travel and for at-home usage...the best part? It's around $10 :0
Eye Makeup Removers $9.99*
These moisture-infused micro-fine fabric curated eye makeup remove pads from Kleenex really hit the mark- they are super easy to use, inexpensive, and won't bother sensitive skin. They are however, great at removing even the most stubborn of eye makeup and are oil-free, so they won't clog pores or cause issues for those like myself with acne-prone and/or oily skin :) Comes in a portable and reusable dispenser with a 60 pad count refill and you can snag the refills for around the same pricing as the kit- or get these at a steal with free shipping on an auto-refill basis with a 10% discount from Kleenex! Dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested, these are great for all skin types and also wonderful for on-the-go needs! I love that they don't smell, easily remove eye makeup- even eye liners, and won't leave behind annoying cotton hairs or residue.
