How should you use the Intimate Wipes?
We've all been there: After a super long day (or hardcore period cramps), we simply don't have it in us to make it to the shower for refreshment. Enter Lunette Intimate Wipes — admittedly less effort, but still prudent — to the rescue. You can use the Intimate Wipes for your intimate area and the body in general; wipe your hands, freshen your face, or wipe away sweat from the armpits. Great for messy period days, hot summer days in nature or while working out! The Wipes are fantastic for after sex too! Safe to use for the face, but you should avoid direct contact with eyes if sensitive.
