Blackpink's Rosé's Adorable Dress at the Met Gala Looks Completely Different on Zendaya

  Blackpink's Rosé's Adorable Dress at the Met Gala Looks Completely Different on Zendaya Rosé's Met Gala debut was certainly one to remember.

I am dedicated to my skincare routine, but I can't say that I do it every day, twice a day without hesitation. In all honesty, some days I am just not going to get through the face wash, toner, serum(s), and moisturizer. This used to mean throwing caution to the wind and hoping for the best. But the combination of my laziness and rushed days actually gave way to my discovery of all-in-one skincare products.

Let me just preface this: I can't speak to the all-in-one product as a long-term solution. I have been using these intermittently when the circumstances have deemed them necessary. These multitasking pads and wipes have come in handy on days when I am too hungover, running late, or need a post-workout skincare refresh.

Billie Wonder Wipes

I think of the ingredient breakdown of these wipes the way I think of my conventional skincare routine. First, there is a blend of cleansers that removes makeup and cleanses the skin. Then, there is glycerin, which I think of as the "toner" in the wipe because, not only is it a common ingredient in the product category, it also tightens pores and helps retain moisture. Next up is the serum portion. These wipes pack in vitamin C, which Melissa Kanchanapoomi Levin, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City, previously told Real Simple is "one of the most recommended treatments for improving uneven skin tone, texture, acne scars, dullness, and fine lines." Lastly, hyaluronic acid is a serum-moisturizer hybrid thanks to its dual ability of retaining moisture and plumping the skin. All in all, that's a handy wipe to have in your arsenal.
