In May 2014, I came across this smaller booth on the second floor at The Makeup Show, which is held regularly in New York City. There I met and spoke with a vibrant woman who was genuinely interested in what I did for my work. Her name is Lauren Napier, and she is a professional Makeup Artist with credits including, but not limited to, Bill Clinton, Michael J. Fox and Ben Affleck. When she told me that her Cleansing Wipes would be perfect for my men on-set, I couldn't say no.
Ms. Napier wasn't lying when she said how perfect the wipes would be for men's grooming. I tested them out this week on-set for a magazine editorial where I had FIVE male models who all had different skin types ranging from supremely sensitive to nearly perfect. After a long day on set, some makeup and Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate, the boys were ready to take it all off. The responses I received ranged from “This is awesome!” to “Wow, I don't need multiple wipes – it just takes it all off.” When chatting with Lauren, she mentioned that she designed the wipes to be large enough for a man, durable so there wouldn't be small white bits on the beard area, and strong enough to take the makeup off in one shot.
The benefits of these cleansing wipes goes beyond removing makeup. When you remove one from its individual package, you can smell how refreshing Cleanse is. Loaded with Aloe, Chamonlilla and Cucumber, these three primary ingredients prevent dehydration, reduce redness and growth of bacteria, and alleviate inflammation while refining pores and tightening skin. Sounds like a great deal, right? It is! Tried and true, purchased with my own money, I am in LOVE with Cleanse by Lauren Napier.
Let me know what you think of them. What are your favorite wipes for guys on-set or for yourselves? Leave a comment below!
