I recently went to Florida. I don’t always handle extreme humidity well since lung surgery, so I wondered how I’d handle Florida weather. I managed, I simply ducked inside when I needed a reprieve. This week I received samples of Cool Off Herbal Towelettes. I wish I’d had them when I was in Florida, so I could have really put them to the test. Cool Off are moist towelettes about the size of baby wipes that are designed to help you cool down. The towelettes contain a combination of 17 cooling and therapeutic herbs, botanicals and essential oils, that when used are supposed to reduce your skin temperature by about 13 degrees. The towelettes are supposed to last up to 60 minutes, and can be refreshed and reused after rinsing them with water. I didn’t have these in Florida to test, but we’ve had a fair amount of hot and humid days up here in Jersey. Some days it’s even hot in the house. I tried these indoors on a day where the house reached 84 degrees inside and I was sweating like crazy. If you’ve ever used one of those small travel sized packages of wipes, you know some of them don’t close well and the wipes dry out. That doesn’t happen here because they’re individually wrapped. After you open the towelette, you’re supposed to shake it lightly before applying it to your skin. I tried applying these one at a time to see where they worked best. The spot that was the most effective for me was the back of the neck. I let it sit there for a while and I didn’t sweat or feel super hot, which was wonderful. The only thing that I noticed was the scent, I didn’t enjoy it too much so when using the towelette on the back of the neck the scent was very strong, a bit too strong for me. Perhaps outdoors the scent wouldn’t be as noticeable. These towelettes are very convenient in that they are super small and light, making them easy to carry in a purse, beachbag, or even a wallet. The These towelettes are available for purchase online and are ideal for outdoor activities such as trips to a beach or park, sporting activities and travel.
