Hmmm. How do I ask this question without sounding weird....
Would you pay a little extra for nicer and softer toilet paper?
My mom does. And my roommate gripes when it's my turn to buy the TP and I totally forget, which then has me racing to the bar downstairs to wheel off a few sheets to keep us going until I get to the deli.
When I think about it, "yes" would be the response from my friends and family. So when it comes to wiping their face with a toner, I'm assuming (and would like to think) they would have the same or similar game plan: a wipe that's softer, more gentle and twice as effective.
An interesting product I came across this week doesn't come in a jar or tube. It's Renee Rouleau's toning cloths. While most of the brand's products are geared more toward females (it certainly doesn't eliminate men), the toning cloths are something both sexes can mutually appreciate.
I personally like spray toners and rarely do I wipe my face after application (I like to just let the skin absorb the toner). Though, there are cases when I'm in a rush, so cotton pads are always stocked. What I liked about the Renee Rouleau toning cloths is that they are pretty unique in the market. The cloths are lint free and use a soft blend of fibers that actually absorb 50% less. So when I say they are soft, they are soooft. Imagine a cotton ball that's less harsh and doesn't make that horrible squeak when you pinch it together. Even cotton pads, I feel, are a little too abrasive.
I've also discovered it's versatility. It's great for blotting products onto your face (for instance, I use it for the Jack Black Clear Complexion
). The cloths are also quite thin, so it doesn't bunch up in your trash (talk about eliminating product waste). The other economical value? The box comes in 100% recycled. Save the earth, give good face.
And don't think I'm weird.
