I don’t travel all that much these days, but when I do I’m faced with a bit of a cleansing conundrum. See, I love a cleansing balm as the first step of my double cleanse (Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm is the bomb—get it?) but to make the most of its makeup-melting power it’s best to wipe it off with a warm cloth instead of rinsing. As we all know, hotel washcloths can be more like sandpaper than something you’d actually rub on your face, and that’s where Prospector Co.’s Compressed Towel Tablets come in.
Let’s discuss this packaging first… The super-cute jar (which is perfect for stashing bobby pins, safety pins and the like after you finish the towels) comes packed with six compact tablets that unfold to a dishtowel size when they come in contact with water. Composed of smooth cotton fiber, they’re great for sensitive skin—and since they’re disposable you can use them on a plane or anywhere else for that matter without getting stuck with a wet rag (and I’m not talking about your travel companion). And at $4.99, the price is pretty phenomenal, too.
