In terms of cleansing, I have to admit I'm not often one to reach for a cleansing wipe unless I'm in a pinch, like on a flight or on-the-go. Mostly, I just really love the experience of really nourishing my skin with a cleansing routine.
First step, I cleanse my makeup. Second cleanse, I treat my skin — just like the Oprah of skin care, Caroline Hirons, taught me. She is so wise. Alas, I digress. Where was I? Oh, right — cleansing wipes.
On the off chance that I am reaching for a wipe, it's gotta be a really good one. So, when the new Dr. Dennis Gross Antioxidant Cleansing Cloths came across my desk, I almost had a heart attack out of sheer joy. Those bad boys have AHA's. What does that mean? I can tote these to my morning workout classes, use them to cleanse after class, and I don't have to worry about carrying a separate AHA with me. It's life-changing. For more on the eternal dope-ness of these wipes, Courtney Brooks, Coordinator of Aesthetics at Dr. Gross' dermatology practice in NYC, gave us the scoop below.

What the Experts Are Saying:
"These wipes are an absolute must have in my gym bag. I like to use them to get off any makeup before I go into my yoga class. Or, if it is a particularly warm class where we start 'sparkling' (we don't sweat), then I will also use one after to class to hold me over until I get to shower," says Brooks.
