Everybody has at least one niche pet peeve. From people taking video calls in public without headphones to people smacking their gum absentmindedly, some things are just plain annoying.
But you can avoid some pet peeves. For example, if you hate getting your arms wet when you wash your face or hands, you must try out wrist towels.
While it may sound like an unnecessary extra step in your skin care process, wrist towels can make your getting-ready routine more enjoyable.
Crosize Wrist Towels for Washing Face, $9.99
4 Pairs Microfiber Wrist Wash Towels, $13.99
Available on Amazon in loads of different colors, wrist towels are exactly what they sound like: Tiny towels that you wear on your wrist to catch water that runs down from your hands. Basically, they’re a cuter version of a sweatband.
Wrist towels are generally soft, stretchy and super absorbent, making them ideal for absorbing stray water droplets or face oils and serums.
Face Washing Wristbands, $8.99
Spa Wrist Towel Wristbands, $12.99
If you still think wrist towels sound unnecessary, read the glowing reviews Amazon shoppers have left them.
One happy customer called them an “absolute must-have” and said, “I have tried so many ways to keep water from running down my sleeves when I wash my face, so when I saw these I had to try them and ZERO REGRET. They work perfectly, catch every drop, dry out before I need them again, and they’re very soft and comfortable to wear.”
Another reviewer said wrist towels were “the things you didn’t know you needed.” They added that “these things are so amazing and eliminated the most uncomfortable part of my skincare routine.”
Why be annoyed and uncomfortable if you don’t have to? Add a pair of wrist towels to your Amazon cart, and thank yourself later!
