Reusable Makeup Remover Pads vs One Time Use Cotton Pads

Did you know it takes years for makeup wipes to breakdown in landfill sites. Even when you decide to flush your makeup wipe down the toilet, you're contributing to blocked sewage systems and leaving sewage workers to fish out your 'convenient' makeup wipe just for it to be placed in a landfill site. Yes! We get it, buying a pack of makeup wipes is just SO EASY & SO CONVENIENT, but this lifestyle of 'convenience' is adversely effecting our planet.

Our 16 piece reusable makeup remover pads can help to fight this problem of billions of wipes ending up at landfill sites and at the bottom of the beautiful ocean.

You can re-use our Makeup remover pads up to 500 times simply by adding them to your normal wash cycle. Just add your favourite makeup remover serum to the pads or simply just add water and help to fight this on-going issue associated with 'convenient' facial wipes.

Our pack contains, 12 soft Bamboo Velour cosmetic removal pads and 4 Terry rough pads with a soft peeling effect to gently remove stubborn makeup. We recommend using our soft pads for sensitivate areas such as around the eyes. 

Our pads are made from bamboo fibre and cotton and can be cleaned and reused to minimise landfill waste. Our pads are suitable for all types of skin and are designed to deeply cleanse the face removing even stubborn dirt. 

Our 12 Piece Charcoal Pad Set vs Our Makeup Remover Standard 16 Pad Set

Our Standard Makeup Pads are better for use with makeup remover oil, cleanser & makeup hydrating creams. Our standard set also includes Terry pads for removing makeup more effectively. We recommend our Standard Makeup Pads for Water Soluble makeup. Whereas, our Charcoal Pads are better at Tough to remove makeup that are prone to leaving stains. It's also better for removing Mascara and other tough to remove cosmetics. 

Looking After your Makeup Remover Pads & Washing them

Place your pads in a mesh laundry bag and wash them in the washing machine with your light coloured clothes on a warm wash ( up to 40°C, 104°F) with a gentle detergent and leave the pads to dry naturally. We recommend laying your pads out flat when drying. Do not use fabric softener or bleach when washing your pads. 

Tough to Remover Stains - Advice

Some makeup stains are tougher to rough than others. We recommend if you use your pads to remove mascara & other cosmetics that leave a stain, gently soak your pads in water after removing your makeup before placing in the washbag. This will ensure that any mascara stains are easier to remove when added to your wash cycle.

    Lovely soft pads that have washed well, but slightly lost their shape. However, really pleased that they can be used for up to 500 times and have stopped me using facial wipes completely.
