I admit it: I bought the pack of Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes because of the polar bear picture on the packaging. Other than being a vegetarian, I'm not very crunchy and usually get annoyed when companies use questionable "natural" claims to convince me their products are healthier. But Josie Maran had two things going for her with these wipes (other than the bears): They are biodegradable and a portion of every package of sold goes to the Natural Resources Defense Council's Polar Bear SOS initiative (I wish they'd say how big that portion is, though).
The wipes are much softer than others I've tested and used so far, which gets them major points. They remove all the face makeup quite easily and efficiently with no rubbing. Following with a mild toner shows that all makeup has been removed with no residue. Eye makeup was a bit harder- the wipes aren't a match for most mascaras or for the eyeliners I'm using, so an efficient eye makeup remover is still required. It doesn't matter much since I'm always using separate products for eye and face cleansing, so the Josie Maran product is definitely becoming part of my regular rotation.
Bottom line: Do it for the bears.
Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes ($12 for a pack of 30) is available from Sephora, online and in store.
