Whether you spend forever on your makeup removal routine or not, it’s likely to have a big impact on the planet.
Yep, it’s time to ‘fess up and admit we have an obsession with single use, landfill-filling toiletries from wipes to cotton pads. But listen up, there are alternatives that work just as well as their less eco-friendly counterparts.
Introducing Reusable Make up Remover Pads (£12.99); reusable and washable bamboo cotton pads available from Amazon that are quick, easy to use and most importantly planet friendly, because they can be used over and over again.
Reusable, zero-waste makeup remover pads are not a new, or secret concept as they’re currently the number one best seller in face makeup removers on Amazon, with a star rating of 4.5 out of 5 and over 200 glowing reviews.
One customer said: ‘There’s no downside to buying these pads.’
‘They remove makeup with ease, are very durable (survive washing and tumble drying) but also gentle on your skin. Soft and relatively large so you can use one half of the pad for one thing, like cleanser, and the other for another, like toner. If you are debating getting these just go for it! It’s great for the environment, for your face, and for your pocket!’ they continued.
Another added: ‘These are incredible, I’m annoyed I didn’t discover them sooner.’
‘I used to get through approx. 4-5 a day with disposable ones so I’m really chuffed I’ve found reusable ones.’
The reusable makeup remover pads are an easy way to swap out your cotton pads and become more environmentally conscious.
They’re a little larger than your standard cotton cleansing pads, so you can get your whole face done with one. Plus they can be used with any makeup remover or micellar water of your choosing.
After they are dirtied up, you just pop them into the mesh bag provided (so they don’t go missing in the abyss of the washing machine drum) and throw them in the wash with your towels to get them clean.
Made of premium special bamboo cloth they’re also gentler on the skin and unlike many cotton pads are not filled with chemicals that are not only bad for your skin, but will eventually filter into the sea, rivers and soil when the disposed of.
Better yet, cleaning your face and clearing your conscience has never been cheaper or more convenient, as they’re available on Amazon Prime and cost just £12.99 for 16 bamboo makeup remover pads, in comparison to an average pack of disposable, single-use cotton pads from your local beauty retailer that cost £2.69.
According to the brand ‘one organic makeup remover pads can be used up to 1000 times.’
