Like bottled water and plastic bags, makeup remover wipes are a once-loved convenience we've largely phased out: We couldn't justify the waste (or handle the guilt). But then we discovered Physicians Formula Organic Wear Facial Makeup Remover Towelettes ($10; drugstores). They're biodegradable, and their aluminum dispenser is recyclable. And they're as easy on the skin as they are on the planet: free of parabens and synthetic fragrances, saturated with cucumber extract and orange water gentle enough for the eyes. Using them leaves us with a pristine complexion—and a similarly clean conscience.
