I can't remember where I found this tip so I can give them credit, but it is so easy to make your own facial cleansing cloths (similar to Ponds, Oil of Olay or Doves)

Buy a roll of high quality paper towels. I use the Bounty Select-a-Size so that I don't have to cut the full sheets down. Fold each sheet into squares.

Buy a bottle of good liquid facial cleanser. Try to find the liquid, not the foaming. Dilute some cleanser with water (about 1 to 1 proportion) and soak the paper towels in the solution. Hang the towels out to dry. When dry, they will work just like the ones you buy - wet and wash your face.

I found some WalMart brand cleanser for $1.00, so I make cloths using sensitive skin formula for every day use and some cloths with acne formula for those not so good days :)

This is a super suggestion. Those things are expensive but nice to have especially in the summer.

What a great idea. You could even make some with household cleanser, for emergencies in the car, for the camping box, or in the backpack.

That is an aswesome tip....only one more thing to add to it:

Use Cetaphil as the liquid cleanser...Cetaphil is seriously the cleanser most dermatologists recommend!!

My mom takes the store-bought facial cleansing cloths and cuts them in half. There's still plenty to use!

Oh my goodness! I thought I was the only one to cut my facial cloths in half.... sometime quarters depending on the size!

I have very sensitive skin so I use cut up Handi-Wipes for my cloths. The can even be reused. I wash them in a lingerie bag. They do come out wrinkled but as soon as their wet it doesn't matter anyway!
