How to wipe away all that grime and makeup

The promise

Formulated with blueberries and fruity acids, these 99-per-cent natural towelettes gently remove makeup, dirt and oil and exfoliate the skin.

How it works

Free radicals sound like they'd be fun at a party, but what they actually do is wreck havoc on the skin's microstructure. But the blueberries, vitamin C and anthocyanins in these towelettes are rich in antioxidants, which may sound like a total buzz kill, but actually help to fight the cell-damaging radicals. Fruit acids derived from lemon and apple exfoliate the outer skin layer for a smoother and more radiant appearance.

How to use it

Gently wipe across face, including the eye area. No need to rinse.

The bottom line

I've said yes to many things that I regret: extra cheese, five-inch stilettos, a Rite Aid beauty-counter makeover, baby showers, experimental theatre. But I'm definitely not sorry I said yes to these towelettes. With one quick swipe I can take off makeup and grime and be left with clean, soft, sweet-smelling skin. Plus they're easy to pack and airline-friendly. I strongly encourage you to say no to all the things that have duped me in the past and say yes to Yes To Blueberries. (And maybe the extra cheese, too.)
