LA Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover and Facial Cleansing Wipes Review

Press Sample


LA Fresh Profile

LA Fresh is a beauty company that has created a comprehensive line of personal care and makeup removing wipes for men and women. They've even created special pet wipes!

LA Fresh sent over a couple of their face wipes--makeup removing and facial cleansing wipes--for me to test in their travel lite and individual packets.


LA Travel Lite Fresh Facial Cleansing Wipe Review

Travel Lite individual packets sold in packs of 3

Product Type

These are oil-free face cleansing wipes meant to condition and cleanse all skin types.

Scent 

These have a fresh, slightly floral soap-like scent. The scent is not super strong, but definitely detectable while using the wipes.

On the Face

These cleanse fairly well and even remove most makeup. The cloths are a decent size--not too large, but big enough to get the job done. The 8-cloth packet is super convenient and smaller than a postcard in size, so it can easily be slipped into a handbag or smaller makeup bag. The individual facial cleansing wipes have the same formula, but come in individual packets. These are great if you want to keep 1 or 2 on you during travel or while out and about. I can see either of these being super convenient for being kept in an overnight bag or office desk--as well as your handbag of course!

Price

Both the Travel Lite 8-wipe packet and individual 3-packet set are sold for $2.49

Where to Buy

These are available on LA Fresh's site HERE and HERE

My Thoughts

I think these are great little face cleansing cloths, especially for the price. I found they were gentle enough to be used on my sensitive skin, but these did almost instantly dry out my skin, so I absolutely recommend using a moisturizer after cleansing--especially if you have dry skin.

I did find that all of the LA Fresh wipes I used on my face caused slight reactions with my lips. My lips felt a tad tingly and numb when I used these on them. I have no idea why and couldn't pinpoint what in particular may have been the ingredient(s) causing this reaction. These do contain fragrance, so perhaps that was why?That being said, these are good in terms of cleansing facial skin sand given how sensitive my skin is in general I really can't say whether or not this may be an issue for anyone else. These do not contain parabens according to the ingredients on the packaging.

Product Type

These are makeup removing wipes similar in packaging to the facial cleansing wipes above. It doesn't look as if the 8-pack travel lite pouch of these is available any longer on the site. It has instead been replaced by an oil-free makeup remover wipe formula which I have not tried, but I would assume performs similar to these.

Scent

These have a fresh, slightly licorice-like scent to me.

On the Face

I found these removed makeup pretty well, including waterproof eye makeup. I did find that my lips reacted to these the same way they reacted to the facial cleansing wipes. I was a little disappointed to see that these contained mineral oil (not an issue in the new oil-free formula), which I tend to stay away from as it's a petroleum derivative.  These do contain parabens according to the ingredients label (the new formula appears to be paraben-free). 

Price

These are available for $2.49 for a 3-pack of individually wrapped wipes or $19.99 for 48 individually wrapped wipes

Where to Buy

These are available on LA Fresh's site HERE and HERE.

My Thoughts

I'm surprised LA Fresh chose to use mineral oil in these. I personally wouldn't choose to use them, but if you don't mind the use of mineral oil and parabens then these are excellent in terms of removing makeup. I personally cannot recommend using these to remove lipstick, however, given my experience with them causing my lips to react. I would be interested to see how the newer formula works in comparison to this one and you may want to consider purchasing those instead if you're interested in trying these and prefer to avoid mineral oil and/or parabens. 

Have you tried LA Fresh makeup remover or facial cleansing wipes? What did you think of them?

    1. @emily Totally agree! I've reviewed a handful of pre-packaged makeup and face cleansing cloths so if you're actively looking for some I'm happy to make rec's ;)

  6. Unfortunately the link on their site to the store locator isn't working for me, but I'm pretty sure I've seen them possibly at Target?
