6 Drugstore Cleansing Wipes to Refresh Your Skin Post-Workout
Here’s the story: You just finished a killer workout and burned off all the calories from lunch. Congrats, you probably feel like a million bucks! Your skin is also probably covered in sweat and impurities. A shower is a great idea, but if you’re not near one, a cleanser is what you should reach for to help ensure that pore-clogging impurities are whisked away from your complexion before they have the chance to wreak havoc. Portable facial cleansing wipes are a staple in our gym bags and purses alike, and are a simple, fuss-free way to freshen up on-the-go, especially if you’re short on time. No matter your skin type, there’s a facial cleansing towelette out there to suit your needs. To that end, we’re sharing our picks of the six best drugstore facial cleansing towelettes—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—to reach for after breaking a sweat, below!
