My husband and I are planning a trip to Hawaii at the end of the month. On a recent shopping at my local Target store, I was browsing through their travel sized personal care products and noticed a travel size container of moist towelettes.
This product is called Up & Up Moist Towelettes Travel Wipes, and they are made for Target stores. Up & Up products come in white colored containers with a blue arrow pointing upward. This one also features a childs hand holding a cup of dripping ice cream.
I love the size and design of this container! It looks just like a plastic can of soda pop, complete with the pull tab opening. When you pull back on the plastic tab atop the lid, it bends backward as if it were on a hinge, and one travel wipe is sticking out of the center hole.
The wipes are very easy to pull out and there is very little tearing that needs to be done to separate one from another, and when you pull a wipe out another wipe is “waiting for you at the top”. The pull tab opening then snaps firmly back in place to keep the remainder of the wipes from drying out.
Up & Up Moist Towelettes Travel Wipes contains 25 wipes that measure 5 3/4″ by 7 inches, and these wipes are quite thin and are not at all textured. They are, however, very moist but not wet, and work well to clean sticky hands. I even use them to clean the cover on my iPhone – they do an excellent job of removing finger prints and smudges.
Since this container is the size of a soda pop can, it will easily fit into a car cupholder, so it is perfect for taking along on a car trip. It would fit easily into a diaper bag or backpack as well.
Looking at the ingredients, I was impressed. The first ingredient is water, but the second is aloe barbadensis leaf extract, which is great for the skin, and is an ingredient found in high quality products. Glycerin is the third ingredient, and is something that is often added to hand lotions as it has moisturizing properties.
Up & Up Moist Towelettes Travel Wipes have a mild floral scent that I am not particularly crazy about, but after wiping my hands with a wipe I find that the scent doesn’t really remain so it’s not a big concern of mine. Once a wipe is removed it stays moist for a very long time, so these are very useful and versatile wipes indeed!
The wipes themselves are cloth-like and will stretch without breaking, they seem quite durable for most every day uses. The container is not refillable, and this is my only complaint, but the plastic is recyclable (so please recycle if you have plastic recycling available in your area, I am not so fortunate).
Up & Up Moist Towelettes Travel Wipes were a bargain, they retailed for the low price of $1.12! I am so glad I found these travel wipes, and plan on keeping one of them in my car for those unexpected moments.
