Karlie Kloss Uses These $3 Makeup Wipes Whenever She Travels
The model includes Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes in her in-flight beauty kit.
Karlie Kloss' weekend skin-care routine is "super over-the-top" and her in-flight beauty ritual is no different.
In a new Youtube video, the model demonstrated her everyday makeup look from a plane. The whole ordeal involves lemon water, an under-eye mask, facial rollers, supplements, and she even brushed her teeth—all without ever leaving her seat.
While a 15ish-step process might be over-the-top by some estimations, one product Kloss uses definitely isn't. She used a drugstore favorite to cleanse her face: Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes (Buy It, $3, target.com).
Kloss starts her routine by sanitizing her hands, spritzing her face with a La Mer mist, and using the Yes to Cucumbers wipes. The wipes have been a staple in her routine at least since 2014 when she told The Hollywood Reporter that she uses them to remove makeup between shows during Fashion Week.
The model hasn't gone into the specifics of why the wipes have earned a spot in her makeup routine, but it's easy to guess why. They're intended to remove makeup and gunk without irritating sensitive skin. In addition to cucumber, they contain aloe vera, which has soothing and cooling effects, and green tea, which de-puffs and fights inflammation. The wipes are also oil-free and non-comedogenic, so they won't clog your pores. Even better: They're cruelty-free and made with compostable plant-based fabric, making them a more sustainable option than non-biodegradable makeup wipes.
The wipes might be gentle, but customer reviewers report that they still dissolve stubborn makeup. "Bought this product on a whim for my vacation. It was lightly scented and works really well! Takes off all my makeup, including the stubborn waterproof mascara, and it's very gentle," reads one Target review.

"I also use this to remove liquid lipsticks (they are a pain to remove) and these wipes make it a lot easier to remove," wrote another reviewer. (Related: Meghan Markle Likes These $8 Cleansing Cloths So Much That She Bought Them In Bulk)
Unsurprisingly, Kloss isn't the only celebrity fan of Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes. Sophia Bush told Popsugar that they're "really soothing" and that she likes to use them when she's feeling lazy at the end of a long day. Whitney Port revealed her off-label use for the wipes: She told Refinery29 that she'll use them for a "quick body wash" if she's heading straight to an event from work. Relatable.

Needless to say, the wipes are definitely worth investigating, whether you have flights in your future or just hate trips to the sink.
