Review: Blûm Naturals All-Purpose Cleansing Wipes

 I've never used makeup wipes before, but after seeing loads of bloggers praise different brands of wipes, I decided to give Blûm Naturals a try.  Blûm does make a line of actual makeup wipes, but I bought the all-purpose ones instead, as the ingredients in the two lines are very similar and there's no fragrance free option in the makeup wipes.  The all-purpose wipes cost less too!

Just about actual size
Product Description: Dermatologist tested to be hypoallergenic, non-irritating & safe for babies. Infused with Aloe Vera; it is rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes & proteins. This convenient travel size pack can be used anywhere, anytime throughout the day.  Free of synthetic preservatives or fragrances, parabens, SLS, animal testing.

Ingredients: Aqua (water), Ethyl Alcohol, Decyl Glucoside, Organic Aloe Vera Extract, Potassium Sorbate

Price: $1.69 from Vitacost or $1.60 from iherb

My Thoughts: If you like makeup wipes, these are are a great natural option.  They're thick enough that I haven't had any issues with them tearing and they remove most makeup very easily.  Mascara can be a bit challenging - it does come off, but it takes a little more effort.  The container does a good job keeping air out and and I haven't found that the wipes have dried out at all since opening them about a month ago.  I love the small size of the travel wipes too.  They're big enough for most jobs, and you can always use more than one if you need to.  Since they're multi-purpose, it also comes in handy that the canister is so small - just about 3 inches tall.  It's definitely a good size to tote around in your purse, and maybe even small enough to attach to your keychain.    

The Bottom Line: Usually I genuinely enjoy the ritual of my regular skincare routine, so these aren't a product I reach for every day.  Still, I'm glad to have them on hand for the occasional night when you just can't bring yourself to wash your face the regular way.  In fact, even if you aren't a makeup wipes kind of gal, these come in handy for all kinds of things - taming flyaway hairs, dusting small areas, cleaning sticky fingers and more!

  2. Yup! They're basically the same, but the makeup wipes have more additives (chamomile, cucumber, etc.) Also, these do have alcohol, which the makeup ones don't, so possibly they're slightly more drying? I haven't had any problems though!
