Hey sweet friends, thanks for stopping by! Today I have a quick review, plus demo video of the wonderful Eco-Beauty® Oil-Free Face Cleanser Wipes (*c/o LA Fresh) to share with you. There is also a discount code for you as well at the end of this post. ♥

This skin-loving, fresh water-conserving product is free of parabens, sulfates, triclosan, dyes, PEGs, artificial fragrances & animal byproducts.

My Thoughts:
I absolutely enjoyed these wipes! One thing right away that made me happy about these wipes is the size. As you can see pictured above, they are a nice large rectangular shape, which I liked a lot better than most faces wipes smaller square shape. Bigger wipes = more face coverage!

These wipes worked very well on their own for removing makeup and cleansing my skin! They also left my skin feeling very moisturized too, so, I felt confident enough in these wipes to use them alone on the evenings that I was too tired for my regular full face cleansing routine. 

Here is a before & after photo using these wipes... They do a great job right!?
Another aspect that I enjoyed, specifically about the pack I was sent, was that they were packaged individually, making them easy to take on the go. I stuck a few in my wallet for a quick refresher at the gym! I love that you have the option to purchase them as a full resealable pouch, or as individual packet sets, depending on your own preference.

Now, the description says "removes light makeup", but I found did a great job at removing light and heavier makeup. You can see in the demo video below how easily it removes all my makeup including both my eyeshadow and even mascara! I am very pleased with these wipes, and will be ordering more! That being said, yes, I definitely recommend them. ♥

So, I decided to do a video demo to share with you... Not that you all dont already know how a face wipe works! haha However, I thought it would be great for you to see, for yourself, just how quickly and easily one of these wipes removed all of my makeup! (For more videos from me, be sure to follow my youtube channel!)

La Fresh has many more options for face wipes, including wipes for sensitive skin, water proof makeup and more! They also offer more than just face cleansing wipes! You can find just about everything from Baby wipes, antibacterial wipes and even nail polish remover pads from La Fresh! So be sure to check them out... AND use code GOLAFRESH15 for 15% off your next order!!

*I did receive these wipes courtesy of La Fresh for review purposes, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Each school in the Masik collection has a different “signature scent” men’s cologne and women’s perfume. The signature scents are inspired by unique elements of each school such as campus flowers and trees, school colors and landmark and architectural style.
