Playtex Sport Body Wipes


RATING (out of 5 stars): 1 star

COST: $3 for 20 count box

THE SKINNY: I can't figure out why I would use these. The package claims that Playtex Sport Body Wipes are “great for the entire body” and remove dirt and sweat. I don't really doubt either of these claims and they look and feel like typical wet wipes. The “fresh and clean” scented sample was just that.

But overall, the concept just grosses me out. The wipes remind me a little too much of wet wipes or dampened toilet paper. (The package even says these are flushable.)

Playtex Sport Body Wipes
are the same shape and
size as other wet wipes.
Using the Playtex wipes after a run did not make me feel clean. I actually felt a little dirtier. I could feel the cleanser from the wipe on my skin where sweat and dirt were wiped away. This is not the solution to a quick shower and is not really any faster.

I could see using them to wipe grime from your face mid-workout but honestly I am quite wary of using something on my face that is made by and reminds me of other feminine hygiene products.

The Playtex brand has a great reputation but I am not sure I expect to see this product on store shelves for very long.

KEEP OR TOSS: I don't even plan to open the other sample pack.
