Apply, Remove, Exfoliate: Choosing the Right Disposable Wipes

Intrinsics regimen for disposable wipes

When it comes to facials, body treatments, and waxing, it's never a good idea to use one type of disposable esthetic wipe to apply, remove, or exfoliate. Intrinsics has specific disposable wipes that work best for each of these three esthetic treatments, and using the correct product can save you time and money, too. For example, 100% cotton wipes are more absorbent, so why would you use this wipe to apply products to a client's skin? Using cotton wipes for removal makes far more sense, simply based on the product's absorbency. Today we'll walk you through each step of our suggested regimen, and explain how we've color-coded our wipes so you can make the right choice for each esthetic treatment you are performing.
