Hot Sweaty Mess, No More

Beachgoers can clean up nice.

Amazing. Our outlet to highlight things that make our lives and our travels more stylish, more relaxing, more delicious, or more interesting. You know, things that make you go, "A-mazing!"

by Mollie Chen

I was sweaty, sunblock-y, and sandy. Pitying the poor person who would have to sit next to me on the puddle-jumper flight from Maui to Oahu, I picked up a bag of Giovanni Organic Biodegradable Towelettes at an impressively well-stocked Mana Foods in Pa'ia, Maui (more on that soon). One swipe and I was sweet-smelling and fresh-faced. Amazing. They're now a staple in my carry-on. Each rice paper pouch comes with 20 individually wrapped wipes that are scented with grapefruit, peppermint, or lavender (I'm a fan of the grapefruit; the peppermint has the same tingly zing as Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap, if you're into that sort of thing).
