Best Reusable Face Cloths: why you should toss face wipes and grab a reusable face cloth

use a face cloth wash cloth to wash your face don't use wipes
Use reusable face cloths instead of wipes © FairfaceWashcloths
These days we are all becoming much more aware of what we put into our bodies, what we put on our bodies, and treating our bodies and earth with more respect.

Creating a skin care product that supports that mission is what Fairface™ Washcloths is all about. And we're here to provide you with a soft face cloth that is not only gentle and effective for cleansing your skin, it is also kind to the environment.

Here are the top 3 reasons why trading in your disposable face wipes for our reusable, washable, soft cotton face cloths is a great choice to consider. 

Benefits of using a washable / reusable face cloth

1. You choose which ingredients you put on your skin

If you care about what goes on your skin (and inevitably what is absorbed through it), then you may want to double-check the ingredient list on your favorite package of face wipes. One popular brand of facial wipes, for example, contains the following: 
Water, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Sorbitan Laurate, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-32 Methyl Ether Dimethicone, Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-4 Laurate, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Glycereth-18 Ethylhexanoate, Glycereth-18, DMDM Hydantoin, Dilauryl Citrate, Fragrance, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate
I'll admit, even with my smart glasses on I don't know what most of that means, well, except for water.

On the other hand, let's look at the ingredient list for our gentle brand of reusable face cloths:
100% cotton fabrics
Now we know an empty washcloth won't do you much good, but the point is that what you put on your face cloth is YOUR CHOICE. You don't have to put anything on your skin that you don't want to.

There are many options for natural skin care cleansers, the oil cleansing method, or face washes with beneficial, gentle ingredients you can actually identify and pronounce! And if one cleanser doesn't work for you, try another, and another. Because your face cloth can be introduced to as many different cleansers as you can dream up until you've created the perfect marriage. Like we always say, BYOC (Bring Your Own Cleanser) because our washcloths are young, free and single, until otherwise committed. 

2. More gentle to your skin

Remember that fancy list of chemicals and additives in the package of facial wipes? I can't imagine that all of that is gentle on your skin. And for those with sensitive skin? Fugettaboutit.

It's true, some skin types can tolerate more than others, but those with sensitive skin cannot. If you're using face wipes and experience any drying, redness or irritation? It's probably the ingredients your skin is screaming at. And even if your skin seems to tolerate it, you may not want all of those what's-it-called ingredients sinking through your pores.

The beauty of Fairface™ Washcloths, is that they are made with naturally soft 100% cotton flannel. No synthetic fibers or harsh textures that can cause micro-tears to the skin. No added chemicals or pre-embedded cleansers to worry about. When paired with the gentle cleanser of your choice, there is no better way to cleanse your skin gently and effectively, leaving skin feeling calm and looking beautiful.

3. Kinder to the environment, nothing to throw away

We have all heard about the growing concerns over toppling land-fills across the world. According to, an EPA statistic shows that there are just over 3,000 active landfills and more than 10,000 inactive landfills in the U.S. alone. That doesn't include the trash piled up in other countries.

In a conscious effort toward sustaining our earth, in addition to recycling and composting, it is also important to create less trash.

While a small number of eco-conscious companies offer biodegradable face wipes, most are just the run-of-the-mill wipe that ends up piled on top of those giant landfills.

By making this small change, switching to reusable face cloths instead of disposable face wipes, over a 5 year period, you're eliminating approximately 1,800 wipes that would have ended up in the landfill (if you use 30 per month), not to mention the $480 dollars you would have saved NOT buying disposable face wipes (at $8/month).

So toss your face cloths in the laundry, not the trash, and reuse them to your heart's content (we recommend using a clean face cloth for each use). Nothing to throw away, and that's something else you can feel good about.

3 Quick Tips for Better Skin You Should Start Today

If your skin isn't at its best and you're battling break-outs, redness, dryness or irritation, making these few simple changes can jump start your way to clearer, better looking skin!

3 Easy Tips for Clearer Skin


1. Change your pillow case every night.

Do you have any idea what you're sleeping on? Skin oils, left-over makeup, sweat, and drool. The stuff nightmare's are made of. By simply sleeping on a clean pillow case each night, you're eliminating the bacteria-break-out caused by snuggling with a dirty pillow case all night. And since most people don't have a million extra pillow cases, cut it down by using the flip method. The first night, use one side of your pillow, then flip it for the 2nd night; 3rd night use a new pillow case, and so on. Good riddance sweaty drool face.

2. Wash your face 2ce a day with a soft washcloth

Just because you don't roll around in mud all day like a pig at a mud spa, doesn't mean your face isn't dirty. Pollutants in the air, sweat, skin oils, make-up, greasy foods that drip around your mouth, all the times you touch your face but don't even know you do (close to 16+ times an hour according to ABC News)...the truth is, your face isn't as clean as you think it is.

Washing with a clean, soft washcloth like Fairface Washcloths, helps your cleanser do its job better, by wiping away the grease, oil and grime effectively, yet gently. No worries about abrasive textures that can cause redness, irritation and break-outs. Gentle cleansing done right. You'll notice a difference right away in how much better your skin looks and feels.

3. Moisturize

It's a common myth to think that if you apply lotion to your face it will break out, when in reality, it's actually the opposite of that. Dry skin is much more prone to small tears and cracking that let bacteria in. A key to great looking skin is to keep it hydrated and moisturized.

Not only will moisturizer give your face a quick 5-year-face-lift by plumping and smoothing, it will help retain the moisture your skin already has, which is important for skin health and the prevention of inflammation and redness. Choose the right moisturizer for your skin type, apply it after you shower or wash your face, and you will begin to see a transformation in your skin almost immediately.

Maintaining clean, clear skin doesn't have to be complicated. Start today with these 3 easy steps and see how much better your skin looks and feels!

Not only do we love ♥ to receive great feedback from our customers, we also really enjoy getting to know who they are, what their personal skin care story is, and why they love our products. 

Although Fairface™ Washcloths are the best washcloths to use on sensitive skin because of their mild, gentle properties, they are also an essential part of any skin care routine due to the gentle, but necessary, exfoliation that takes place when using a washcloth for facial cleansing. 

Getting rid of dull, dead skin cells on the surface is a key part of maintaining healthy, radiant skin.

Skin Care Concerns:

I am a lucky woman, great genes. No skin problems at all, but as I get older and deal with some dryness, I find using a facecloth for exfoliation is a must. 

Why you love Fairface Washcloths:

I love both sides (Original Fairface™ Washcloths), I use the terry side twice and flannel once when I wash both morning and night.

Other Skin Care Products you love:

I am by NO means a hugely "natural" person but I find the best results for healthy skin is less is best. I started using Eve Lom a couple of years ago but found the herbs too irritating. But I loved using oil to cleanse. I have been using Josie Maran Argan Oil Cleansing Oil to cleanse, followed by her regular Argan Oil, then Argan Milk followed by Combat Ready Balm to seal in the moisture.

skin care tips and help for teens and adults, teaching kids about skincare, how to wash your face
Patti Robinson, Sapphire Skin Care & Healing
I currently live in Portland, OR with my husband and 2 feisty rat terriers.  I’m 55 years old, I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and I grew up in a family of 6 girls (my poor father!) in Virginia.  Compared to my 5 sisters, I undoubtedly had the worst skin of the family.  I have a lovely stepdaughter who is married and lives in Las Vegas.

I graduated from Oregon State University with a BS degree in Dietetics & Institutional Management, but my work career has been in financial services (working for three start-up companies).  Six years ago I started planning for a different future- one that was more meaningful, more fulfilling and less stressful.  I took Reiki classes and got certified, then attended a 9-month evening program at The Euro Institute of Skin Care while working full time, and became a licensed esthetician.  I officially opened the doors of Sapphire Skin Care & Healing in November, 2011.

Today my world revolves around my family, of course, but it also consists of working part-time as a Program Manager for Genesis Financial Solutions; taking clients and teaching at Sapphire; volunteering at a chemotherapy clinic; and teaching Level 1 Reiki to chemotherapy patients and caregivers through the Northwest Reiki Association.

Tell us a little about your business and skin care program

I am the sole practitioner and owner of Sapphire Skin Care & Healing.  I love it because I can provide a private oasis for clients and take the time to learn their skin concerns and educate.  Some of my clients like to come in with a friend or two and create their own spa day with wine and snacks- and I can allow that since I own the place!  I offer facials, LED light, microdermabrasion, peels, brow waxing, and Reiki.  I also love to teach; I teach all levels of Reiki classes and also skin care classes for preteens, teens, and adults.

Sapphire offers a private, high quality skin care experience for each individual.  The name Sapphire was inspired by a book I read about ancient priestesses who held ceremonies to promote womanhood and healing.  In these ceremonies, the priestesses would place six sapphires around the group of women to provide protection.  Cool, huh?!  In my treatment room, if you look closely, you will find 6 small sapphire wands placed strategically as they did long ago.

I retail a few product lines, but mainly Epicuren Discovery.  It is a 30+ year old company out of Laguna Hills, CA that combines natural plant extracts with the latest most effective biochemical ingredients.  They have a personal relationship with each farmer that they source ingredients from, and something like 98% of the plant sources are organic, and many of the products are 100% vegan.  Epicuren is constantly innovating new products and improving existing ones, which I love.  I had used the line myself many years before starting Sapphire, so the decision to carry Epicuren was easy.

Why do you feel it is important to start young when teaching about the importance of skin care?

For a few reasons.  If you learn the basics early, you can establish valuable life-long habits and reap the benefits throughout your entire life.  Not only do these habits promote beautiful skin, but they also protect against cancer and premature aging.  You can also dispel misconceptions about skin care early and prevent any potential related issues.

The biggest advantage of learning the importance of good skin care early, however, is to help manage acne from the very beginning.  Today 80% of preteens, teens, and adults have acne, and acne is showing up at an earlier age because unfortunately puberty starts earlier.  Adding acne to the list of stresses that 9 and 10 year old children already endure can have devastating effects on self-esteem and confidence- at an age where self-esteem and confidence are critical!

What do you think are common misconceptions about skin care? Does it seem to differ between ages?

The most common misconception I come across is thinking that the oil your skin naturally produces (or does not produce) is “bad”, when in fact it is one of nature’s finest gifts.  Similarly, many people think that if they experience any oil on the face during the day, their skin is considered “oily” and needs to be treated aggressively.

I have also spoken to people who say they don’t get facials because they are painful.  Facials do not have to be uncomfortable!  If you’d rather not have extractions or an aggressive enzyme or alpha hydroxy acid peel, let your esthetician know.  My 90-minute facials include lots of massage (infused with Reiki) for relaxation and other benefits. When the body is relaxed it can heal on so many levels.

Lastly, there is the misconception that if your foundation contains sunscreen, that is all the protection you need.  The problem is that we do not normally use enough foundation to provide the amount of sunscreen needed for adequate protection.

There are other misconceptions I could mention, but these are the biggies, and they’ve been held by people of any gender and any age.

What are some of the common problems people face with regard to their skin?

The most common problematic skin conditions I see at Sapphire are acne (at all ages), dehydrated skin, sun damage, and spider veins (textbook term being “telangiectasis”).  I have also seen cases of overexfoliating the skin.

What are a few of the most important things people should know about skin care?

 Other than the misconceptions discussed above, I would say the following:  

  • Don’t underestimate the advantage of a healthy whole foods diet, regular exercise, quality sleep, and drinking lots of water.  And not smoking!  As an example, my skin (and my energy) improved tremendously just by reducing my sugar consumption to one treat a week.
  • I like to recommend the following strategy for adding products to a regime: at age 13 or 14, start using a high-quality exfoliant one to three days a week; at age 20 start using an eye cream and a topical Vitamin C product; and at age 30 start adding products geared towards anti-aging, such as collagen-promoting peptides and antioxidants.  And everyone (all ages) should be using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 every single day, period.
  • Get a facial every 4-6 weeks if you can afford it.  You can’t help but feel great when your skin looks its best, and the relaxation and time away from your cell phone and “To Do” list is invaluable.

Why did you choose to include Fairface Washcloths in your skin care program?

I have been telling all of my clients and friends about Fairface Washcloths! Your washcloths are so gentle and non-irritating to the skin, but yet they are extremely effective in removing any remaining cleanser or debris from the face that rinsing can leave behind (or regular rough washcloths, for that matter).  I used to have a few stubborn tiny bumps on my temples, and after just a week or so of using my new Fairface Washcloths, the bumps vanished!  And my sensitive skin does not get inflamed after cleansing, as regular washcloths used to do.

Fairface Washcloths are perfect for all of my clients and students, especially those with acne and rosacea. My young clients especially love the fact that they are so soft!

Anything else you'd like to tell us

I had a particularly challenging year in 2014.  I broke my right arm in July, broke my left foot in August, then was diagnosed with breast cancer in October.  Can you believe that?!  But I survived, and I ended up on the other side of it all more strong; more appreciative of things and people; and certainly more understanding and compassionate towards people with cancer, especially breast cancer. It’s a great perspective to have as a healer.

All challenging experiences have a lesson in them, right?  These events have inspired me to do not just mediocre things but AMAZING things with the rest of my life, even if I think I am not capable, haha. Heck, one week after my breast cancer surgery I was in two news broadcasts helping to promote a local hair salon that was giving a complimentary service to breast cancer patients.  Who thought I would ever be on TV?!

Details about your classes and website:

I schedule my skin care classes periodically and include them in my newsletters, but I can also custom schedule a class that is convenient for those interested.  You can contact me via email at or via phone at 503 926-2674 to schedule a class or to be added to my newsletter list.  The classes are about 2 hours long and include a PowerPoint presentation, a small gift and samples, and a chance to practice your new skin care routine with products from my backbar.  Fairface Washcloths will be offered as the free gift for the Teenage and Adult classes.

The current schedule and prices are as follows.  Classes are held at my studio in northwest Portland- Sapphire Skin Care & Healing, 925 NW 19th Avenue, Ste D, 97209.

Parents can attend at no charge.  They are fun, informative, and relaxing!

          Preteen Skin Care:  $30 per student
                   Saturday, September 19th, 2pm – 4pm

          Teenage Skin Care:  $35 per student
                        Sunday, October 4th, 2pm – 4pm

            Adult Skin Care:  $40 per student
                        Sunday, October 25th, 2pm – 4pm

As I build my clientele, I currently take clients at Sapphire late Thursdays, and Friday - Sunday.  My service menu is on my website, along with a link to Sapphire’s Facebook page.  I am also on Yelp.
