Copy-pasting some stuff from the MUA Skincare Board:
Alternative 1: easy ready-made option: unscented baby wipes.
- Whole Foods 365
- Nature Babycare
- Seventh Generation
- and various others…
2: A bit more work: making your own wipes is usually a more economical solution than buying ready-soaked wipes, and gives you more options on what to be wiping on your face.
Apply some sort of ready-made solution to your face via
- a cotton-wool pad
- or a reusable alternative (lots of them on Etsy: get a bunch of them, use each one once, wash at the end of the week with the rest of your linens).
Suggestions for solutions:
- plain witch-hazel hydrosol (the alcohol-free version, though many are happy with the usual drugstore/pharmacy 14% alcohol one)
- rosewater (the food kind is usually cheapest and fairly readily available)
- micellar water/cleanser: can rec. the Nuxe and A-Derma ones
- or a toner, or 2-in-1 cleansing & toning solution
3: A slightly more labour-intensive option: swiftcraftymonkey has a good recipe for DIY cleansing wipes.

I am lazy.
I have every sympathy with people who don’t want to do any more than swipe something rapidly round the face of an evening. If that.
My own solution, in the evening: witch-hazel on reusable cotton pad. Fine for sunscreen and even a light coating of finishing powder, i.e. for everyday purposes.
Sometimes, I admit, I don’t even do that. If I need to get to bed, that’s all there is to it. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. So: I’m not only lazy, but filthy too, and probably also degenerate and indecent.
On the other hand, my skin’s in pretty good shape and I’m sure that sleep is a more important and consistent factor there than whether or not I clean my face properly in the evening.
