In the past month, The Honest Company released it’s newest product, their 3-in-1 Facial Towelettes. I put them in my latest bundle order to see how they would fare, and I was not very confident that I would like them. This is because I typically find this type of makeup remover to be wildly insufficient for actually removing makeup; I feel like they tend to just smear the makeup on my face around a bit, more than anything else. And I also sometimes find the cloths to be a bit scratchy.
But The Honest Company has a winner with this product, overall! I will say this: if you have gone “all out” with your makeup and are rocking BB Cream, foundation, multiple layers of eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, blush and lipstick, then you aren’t going to get all of your makeup off with one of these cloths. I dare say there isn’t a makeup remover cloth on the planet that will be able to help you with that, at least not in one shot. This cloth is no different. But for days when you didn’t wear makeup or you just put on some BB cream and some lip gloss, then you are going to LOVE this product.
The size of the cloth is generous and the feel is SO soft. But at the same time, it’s quite strong. I have given it a really good tug (I try to be thorough for you guys!) and it didn’t rip or tear at all. The smell is very clean, too. It doesn’t appear to me that it is fragranced in any way. It just smells naturally nice!
The 3 things this product is supposed to do, if you were wondering, is cleanse, moisturize and remove makeup. I think cleanse & remove makeup are sort of one and the same, but whatever.
I have rather dry skin and my skin feel soft after using the product. I still apply a moisturizer after using it, though I could probably get away without it, especially during the warmer months.
And of course, these towelettes will travel well, which is one of the reasons I like them so much. They are a convenience product. You get 30 towelettes for $6.95, which is enough to last you a month if you only clean your face with this product once a day.
How to Buy Them
I always will let you know when something is best to make part of your bundle or if it’s best to make it an add-on item. At $6.95 retail, you’ll be paying more for the product if you put it in one of your 5 bundle slots, as each bundle slot item breaks down to $7.20 per item. If you make it one of your add-on items, the price drops to 25% off, making it $5.21. So that’s the way to go!
One complaint I have heard from folks about the bundles is that a good chunk of the items available for bundling actually retail for less than $7.20. While I try hard to only buy those items as add-ons, there is something to be said for including one in each bundle if it is something that you need and use all the time AND if you are getting more expensive items in your other slots so that you are still coming out money ahead. Since this item is only 30 cents away from the $7.20 per-item-price, if you are struggling to fill your cart with items that cost more, this might be one to include in one of the slots.
What are Bundles?
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the Cliff’s Notes version of the story: The Honest Company offers “bundle” deals to folks who subscribe to their products. You can get any 5 products from a select group of offerings for $35.95 and then get up to 3 more items for 25% off retail price. By default, you will get one shipment each month. However, it is SUPER easy to change the date of your bundle. You can push it back a week, a month, 2 months, whatever. You aren’t promising to spend a certain amount within a set time limit. And I LOVE that! The Honest Company also alerts you when it is almost time for you bundle to ship, and that gives you the chance to hop online and change your dates if you aren’t quite ready for another shipment. In exchange for being signed up with them, you will find that you can get some pretty good buys in the bundle. For example, my husband’s shave oil retails on the site for $15.95 but by getting it in the bundle, I’m only paying $7.20!
