April Sneak Peek: The Product I’d Steal From a 10-year-old

Beauty confession: even though I’m safely in my 20s, my skin is still just as sensitive now as it was back when I was teenager. In some cases, particularly when I’m stressed, it’s even worse now than in my teens; which is why I always look for the gentlest, lightest skincare products I can find. I usually navigate the cream and serum realm by staying away from heavy ingredients. But when it comes to the world’s easiest-to-use product—the face wipe—I can never seem to find one that doesn’t strip or irritate my skin. Enter these game-changing wipes by willa™, which just landed in the Birchbox shop (some of you will be getting in this month’s box!).

These towelettes are non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic and extra-gentle, since the line was originally developed as a natural alternative for young girls and tweens. While I normally wouldn’t reach for a product hiding inside a 6th grade backpack, willa™’s products are paraben, sulfate, and harsh chemical-free, which I love, and they somehow still do a great job cleaning off my makeup. Plus, the wipes use natural botanicals like lavender, aloe vera, and green tea to help calm down any redness or inflammation I get from running around the city. It’s the perfect solution for freshening up before happy hour, or after a morning run when I’m rushing to work—even if it means I have to steal a few wipes from my 10-year-old niece’s bag when she isn’t looking.
