Dear Lovely Reader,

Beauty wipes are nothing new to the beauty world.  They are handy, convenient, especially when one is traveling or there limited access to water.  For those lazy to wash their face with cleanser and water, this seems like a dream come true.

I received a Damone Roberts AM/PM 4 pack set from my How to Be A Redhead box.  First two packs, are in white, and read AM 1 and AM 2.  The first is a cleanser and the second is a moisturizer and primer.  This gets your morning face set for makeup application.  The second two packs are in black and read PM 1 and PM 2.  This gets your face clean and set before going to bed.  Pretty straight forward.

The claim is that that these are free of parabens, sulfates, PEG’s, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Synthetic Dyes, TEA, DEA & MEA.

Here’s a blurb from their website:

“Experience Damone Roberts AM•PM™•The Revolutionary Skin Care System.

Solely in the form of a pre-moistened cloth facial wipe, the Damone Roberts AM•PM™ skin care system is expertly designed to cleanse and moisturize at the most important parts of your day—morning and night.

Free of Parabens, Sulfates, PEG’s, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Synthetic Dyes, TEA, DEA & MEA. Four Standout Treatments. 

The first, complete skin care system in the form of a cloth facial wipe. This revolutionary system consists of four powerful, easy-­to­-use treatments, delivered in natural cotton face cloths that require no water. Designed to complement one another, the treatments can also be used independently. With four treatments, all are natural and gentle on even the most sensitive of areas, including eyes and lips.

The Damone Roberts AM•PM™ Skin Care System combines a proprietary blend of Arnica, Green Tea Extract, Cucumber Extract, Citrus Extract, Copper PCA, Zinc PCA, Magnesium PCA and Hyaluronic Acid, all meant to deliver maximum efficiency.

Harvested fresh from a sustainable farm in France that respects and maintains the native habitat, the three proprietary blends—Citrus, Cucumber and Green tea—comprise the custom ingredients, along with trace minerals of Copper PCA, Zinc PCA, Magnesium PCA and Hyaluronic Acid.

The Four Breakthrough Treatments Include:

AM1 Facial Cleaner, AM2 Facial Moisturizer and Primer, PM1 Makeup Remover, PM2 Moisturizing Night Crème. ”  Check out what each towelette does here.

I’ve been using these faithfully since getting these in my How To Be A Redhead box.

They have not caused inflammation or irritation to my skin.  They don’t leave a grimy residue.  They do remove the makeup and dirt and calm my face.  And the ingredients.  It all sounds so good.  I should be delighted.

However.

That 30 day price tag.  Oof.  $75.00 U.S.

They sell on the website a 10 day supply for $35.00 U.S., and each part of the 4 part ritual can be purchased separately at $25.00 each.  They also have celebrity endorsements from actors on the site who again reference the convenience.

But.

One wipe doesn’t clean completely.  That’s also a problem.

Four wipes — are these biodegradable?  Earth friendly?  I checked the website, went to their YouTube channel, I see no claim on biodegradable.  I did a search on their site and a casual Google search, nothing came up answering the issue in relation to this brand.  So I would have a problem using four wipes each day – this piles up in a week let alone a year.

I’ve since submitted an inquiry at their website about this issue.   Once I hear from the company, I will post an update here.

In the meantime, I will post this: a screen shot below that popped up after I submitted my inquiry at Damon Roberts website.  Under the words “Contact Us” it reads in tiny lettering “We’ve received your feedback and will respond shortly if required.” Required? Hmm.  Stay tuned.
