Careers at Recess

Do you sweat? Us too. Are you perpetually short on time? Us too. Have you ever used the Starbucks bathroom like it’s your own? We’ve been there too! That’s why we created RECESS, a line of elevated clean beauty products that that go where you go, and make it easier to live well.

The idea for RECESS came to us at the gym, where the midday class we regularly attended always ended in a 30 minute wait for the shower. We knew there had to be a shower replacement that was quick, portable and effective. We went to every drug store beauty aisle, travel section and Sephora checkout lane, and tried everything we could find. Nothing worked - the products we tried left our faces red, irritated or breaking out.

That’s when we decided to consult two leading dermatologists and develop our own formulas and create clean products that not only worked, but delivered true benefits. The result: RECESS - biodegradable, single-use face and body wipes that provide the same amazing benefits you'd expect from your at-home beauty routine. We feature ingredients like green apple extract, aloe, hyaluronic acid and ensure that all our products are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and other skin irritants.

We are dedicated to making your in-between moments better. To create products that enable you to take time for yourself each and every day. What’s your RECESS?
