So I figure I go through so many products between my Ipsy Bag subscription, my Fab Fit Fun Box subscription, and my ridiculous amount of purchases at Sephora, I should share what I feel about well the products I've tried and used.

So first up is Josie Maran's Bear Naked Wipes.

The package includes 30 wipes and I purchased these @ Sephora for $15 CAD.

So its claim on the Sephora website:

What it is: A natural makeup-removing wipe that is gentle enough to be used to remove eye makeup.

What it does: Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes removes makeup and impurities from face and eyes, nature's way—with a blend of aloe vera, chamomile, cucumber, and vitamin E. Free of fragrance, parabens, and petrochemicals, Josie Maran Cosmetics' Bear Naked Wipes are luxuriously soft, biodegradable, and kind to tender eyes and skin. It's made with love for both people and the planet.

What it is formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Synthetic Fragrance - Synthetic Dye - Petrochemicals - Phthalates

What else you need to know: In support of the Natural Resources Defense Council's Polar Bear SOS initiative, a portion of every package of Bear Naked Wipes sold will go to protect these endangered animals.

According to Josie Maran's site the ingredients listed are:

Aqua (Water)**, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Ceteareth-20, Cetearyl Alcohol** , Glyceryl Stearate**, Ceteareth-12, Cetyl Palmitate**,Glycerin**, Cucumis Sativa (Cucumber) Extract**, Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Extract**, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Gel**, Tocopheryl Acetate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil**, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil*, Sodium Chloride**, Sodium Citrate**, Phenoxyethanol.

My Rating


My Thoughts

I'm giving it the one bag because, supposedly, a portion of every package sold will go protect Polar Bears. How much of the portion? Who knows. 

I am super disappointed with this wipe. Each square is so small that I have to use at least 2 squares to get most (not all) my makeup off. I also have to really rub my eyes to completely get my eyeliner (Kat D's Tattoo) and any mascara I have on (and they're not even waterproof ones). Finally, it stings my eyes if I don't rinse or wipe my face after with a wet face cloth. So all in all what's the point aside from the fact that you're saving bears?
