For many years, Texas native Amanda McIntosh worked hard at a classical music career, even spending time working in Spain as part of an orchestra. She and her husband eventually made their way back to the United States, where her husband began a full-time career playing for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Amanda took a job at her mother's consulting practice. After ten years as a consultant, Amanda decided to focus on music and she and her husband also wanted to start a family.
Then one day, driving home from a concert, Amanda realized that she had a stash of dirty washcloths in the laundry. She was tired of the same old boring, coarse cloths she had been using (and running out of). While a friend had turned her onto a great cleansing routine involving oils, she wasn't happy with the selection of cloths she had to use with the oils. And so, she took matters into her own hands.
After testing fabrics and learning more about sustainable beauty products, Amanda created the beauty brand, Take My Face Off, Inc. The company creates reusable skin cleansing products and focuses on products that are good for your skin and the environment. The signature product is the Makeup Mitty. It is made from an ultra-soft Korean polyester that cleanses without tugging and fits around fingers for convenience. It comes in a set of three.
There's also The Mitty Blackout, which is a washable, reusable, eye makeup remover pad. Each set contains five fuzzy pads, which can be used with Take My Face Off's Organic Apricot Kernel Oil.
Because of the success of her growing company, Amanda is planning on expanding Take My Face Off, Inc. to include men's grooming products and children's products.
