Without the harsh makeup stripping ingredients of a typical wipe you can use juicy bamboo as a convenient cleanser. The cashmere-soft 100% unbleached bamboo fibers can be placed in the soil and watch them disappear, they are completely 100% biodegradable.

Product | “Juicy bamboo natural cleansing oil cloths are soaked in honey, jojoba oil, sunflower oil and eight essential oils… they may be called a wipe but on the contrary… they are a cleansing oil cloth. Soaked in vitamins B12, C, E.”
Unfortunately, per the ingredients on the box I could not find 8 essential oils. See ingredient break down below.
Pigmentation | N/A
Application | The Kaia Natural Juicy Bamboo wipes can be used to removed the dust and dirt of the day. They gently remove oil and sebum from the skin, however, it takes many wipes to remove makeup and almost 8 to remove waterproof liner from my eyes. The website does state add eye makeup remover prior to cleansing with juicy bamboo.
Texture/Finish | The wipes are very soft but firmly made. The texture felt a little smoother than other makeup wipes I’ve used in the past. After using 1 my skin tingled for a few seconds and then felt dry. Not tight, itchy dry but moistureless dry. Later in the day I noticed that my skin felt smooth and almost fluffy.

Overview | Let me first say, I now understand why there is a cute little straw in the packaging of the Kaia Natural Juicy Bamboo natural facial clothes box. The clothes themselves smell like they were soaked in delicious agave juice. I want to use them just because they smell SO GOOD! But the great then is there are a lot of benefits to using these wipes for everyday cleansing or makeup removal. There are not a lot of synthetic chemicals or harsh ingredients. The natural ingredients help restore the pH balance of the skin and leave the skin feeling smooth and refreshed.
