You have no valid excuse anymore. With all these lazy-girl beauty essentials, not taking care of your skin is one sin all beauty gods can’t forgive—especially sleeping with makeup on. Sometimes, it’s not enough to use a makeup wipe to rid your face of all the dirt and grime it accumulated during the day. But we found a better alternative: Cleansing sticks. All you have to do is roll it over your damp face (or hands), lather, and rinse! Plus, they’re great for traveling since you won’t have to worry about spilling product all over your skincare kit. Below, we round up 10 cleansing sticks that are worth a spot in your beauty arsenal.
