Travel Essentials – Epic Wipes for Every Trip Until the End of Time

There’s not many ways to write a profound article on wipes. So, when I was approached by Epic Wipes, (the new eco-friendly, massive wet wipe, brand) to test their product and share with you my thoughts, I was a little hesitant. However, they are environmentally friendly and I always support companies that are in it for the greater good so, I took them up on their offer. Still, I had no idea how I would write this story.

Epic Wipes, Review

Stocked up on a bunch.

I decided to  take my Epic Wipes which, I’m sorry guys, I couldn’t help but nickname my, “Epic Butt Wipes” on an epic two-week media tour. I figured, if I was going to truly put these things to the test, they were going big or going home.

I packed my Epic Wipes into my epic Darth Vader American Tourister carry on, tossed a few into my son’s Pannier Convertible Backpack and hit the skies for Mexico, LA and Chicago.

Now I know these things are for people who are doing a lot of outdoors stuff, but let’s really break down this product. I’m going to show you why anyone and everyone needs Epic Wipes, and why they came in handy on an epic level while I was on very different adventures. 

My Epic Wipes Review – The Massive Wet Wipe

About the Epic Wipe Product

Great for a Mayan Jungle

So I carried these suckers from Atlanta to Mexico where my son and I headed out for the annual Sacred Mayan Journey, an ancient Mayan heritage ceremony which runs over two days. For press, five days.

This equated to about 18,000 steps a day, without a/c in and around the jungle of the tropical Riviera Maya. Needless to say we were pretty much dripping with sweat 100% of the time.

You don’t hang with Mayan priests without breaking a sweat…

I remember there being this one point where I rounded everyone up myself, son and two blogging colleagues of mine; drug them into my hotel room and handed out the Epic Wipes like I was rationing bread to a gaggle of geese.

We all needed these.. general public, you’re welcome.

We were all just so… sticky and gross.

The next day we took them to Xel-Ha where we went snorkeling and running around the jungle. Again, gross as it gets, especially after our surprise “Mayan Sauna”. Literally. We were led into a cave and locked inside for a half hour during a Mayan ritual which involved no less than 500 lbs of molten coals.

I sweat in places that I didn’t know made sweat.

I could not wait to get my Epic Wipe and give it a test run. Oh my God! It was like a unicorn just showered me in a fresh, cool rainbow that smelled like herbs. The wipe was huge and very much like a towel. When I was done I felt fresh and ready for the next adventure.

Check out how big they are!

Officially addicted to Epic Wipes.

We all used them and all loved them, seriously, they hit the spot! See for yourself just how they work

But that was just the beginning of my love affair with Epic Wipes…

Great for a Hollywood Red Carpet Premiere

After Mexico I flew out to Los Angeles for the Alice Through the Looking Glass red carpet premiere.  Not one of us ladies could even have guessed we’d be sweating our tails off, all dolled up, at the filming of P!nk’s performance for Jimmy Kimmel Live. Oh my God. We were dying on Hollywood Blvd and the carpet hadn’t even begun yet. We still had to sit through a film and attend the after party.

Red carpet selfie…may I add FRESH selfie. In Modcloth.

 

Thank God I brought my Epic Wipe. I ran into the bathroom and was fresh as a whistle.

Great for a Con like Walker Stalker

After the red carpet I headed to Chicago for Walker Stalker. If you’re a geek and you frequent cons, you know they are exhausting. You’re on your feet all day for several days at a time. The last thing you want to do, or have time to do, is run to your hotel to freshen up mid day. But do you really want to selfie it up with Norman Reedus or Michael Rooker smelling like assholio?


Epic Wipes man, I’m telling you, they are life saving.

These came in super handy both days we were at Walker Stalker and especially after I nearly crapped my pants in The Walking Dead Experience (a live theatrical performance which places you into the scene of a zombie apocalypse).

Epic Wipes has a Kickstarter which is nearly at its goal. Check it out here, I NEED THEM TO MAKE IT OR I DON’T THINK I’LL EVER BE THE SAME AGAIN!

In Closing

I’m addicted. I will be making sure I am ALWAYS stocked up on Epic Wipes. I can’t wait for them to hit the shelves in stores like Target or Walmart, I will buy these forever. As much as we travel, I’m telling you, they are a God send. Whether I’m on long flights, press trips, crapping my pants at Walker Stalker or glamming it up for the red carpet, these things are going to come in super handy.
