Hello, lovelies! I know it's been a little while since my last post, but if you follow me on twitter you know I was taking a little break because one of my younger sisters came to stay with us for the week! It's been awesome having her here--and it's a major plus that she loves beauty/makeup as much as I do. ;)
Kaia Naturals was lovely enough to send these facial cleansing cloths to me a little while ago and I've been testing them out since. As you all know, I have extremely sensitive skin and I prefer natural products whenever possible, but I don't think that using natural products should mean settling for lower performance. To me, Kaia Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths are the perfect example of a natural product that is comparable if not better than the typical products on the shelves. I also think it's fun that these were designed in Canada and are produced in the US--yay for collaborations!
These do have a scent to them that is noticeable but not unpleasant--it reminds me of fruit punch! Again, these facial cleansing cloths did not irritate my overly sensitive skin at all, but I definitely suggest using a facial moisturizer after if you have slightly dry skin like I do after a long, harsh winter.
One last thing I want to point out is the size of these cloths. I'm assuming that the samples I received are identical in size to the ones that come in the full-size packaging. They are a tiny bit smaller than some of the drugstore brands' makeup removing cloths, but I also want to mention that even at a slightly smaller size, I was able to remove all of my eye makeup and cleanse my face with 1 cloth!
These are priced at $17.99 retail here in the US.
Where to Buy
Kaia Naturals offers a list of places you can purchase these in the US on their site HERE. When I purchase these again, I'll probably purchase from either drugstore.com or thenaturalonline.com. I wish these were sold locally!
I am absolutely impressed with these cleansing cloths! I love that they're 99% natural, biodegradable, paraben-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free, and free of synthetic fragrance. But above all, I love how well they work! They're also nice and soft, which is important to me because I hate rubbing my skin in general, but I absolutely cannot stand using something that feels like sandpaper to do it with! Even
though their price tag is a bit higher than drugstore makeup removing
cloths, my opinion is that they're worth it because of how effective and
natural they are. I would rather spend a little more and not bathe my face in chemicals that destroy and irritate my skin. And you know how sensitive my skin is, if I find something that work for me without irritating my face I'm all over it!
Have you tried Kaia Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths? What did you think?
