Are Skin Care Stick Cleansers Really Worth It?


Some people swear by using stick cleansers while others won’t even look at them. Let me start off by asking one simple question, do you ever us facial wipes? They’ve become a staple for most women and even though so many experts have said they’re not to be used regularly, they still are by many.

That’s somewhat of a thing of the past though. The latest and greatest is now the stick cleanser. Why are they so hot right now? Well, most likely because they’re super convenient. It’s like having a glue stick that can make your skin all better.

Why Stick Cleansers Are All The Rage And What You Need To Know About Them!

Most people kick this process off by gently dampening their face and applying the stick cleanser across their face. They use the stick and gently massage all that goodness into their skin, lather up nicely and rinse.

The application process might be just the problem. See what you don’t realize is that you’re essentially applying something to your face that might contain residue from the previous cleansing. Think about it, when you apply the stick cleanser, you’re doing so in a way that can lead to makeup, dirt and grime getting stuck on the stick itself. Then when you apply the stick the follow time, you’re essentially putting that dirt, grime, and makeup back on your skin.

Assuming that the cleansing stick product you’re using has some sort of antibacterial, then you’re in the clear. That way it won’t easily absorb the bacteria.

All these quick fix options sound great until you start looking deeper into the situation at hand. The reason wipes and cleansing sticks were created was to help make your skin care regimen easier while traveling and on the go. If you’re home, then you shouldn’t go for the lazy technique. Instead, stick with the traditional cleansing routine.

Look, no one said looking good was going to be easy. If you’re not willing to put in the work and you prefer to act lazy or take shortcuts, then the results will show that. Steer clear from the trends and just do what works.

There’s a reason why fad diets and crazy weightloss shortcuts don’t last forever. It’s because there really is no such thing as a quick fix.

Now if you are in need of a quick fix, then I suggest you do your research before making a decision. There are lots of stick cleansers on the market to choose from. I’ve showcased one of the more popular brands in an image above. Be sure to research that product before making a purchase. Whatever you do, just make sure you’re getting one that contains an antibacterial and don’t make a habit of using it!

In conclusion, when you are traveling or on-the-go they most definitely are worth it. Other than that, don’t even think about it.
