We’ve all heard the planet is dying and it’s down to our overconsumption and disposable culture.
So what can we as a community do to start a change that will have a lasting effect but also keep ourselves looking as beautiful as we are?
Well one small change we can all make is switching to Washable Makeup Remover pads and let me tell you, it’s a game-changer.
What are Reusable Makeup Pads?
They say what they do on the tin.
Traditional makeup remover pads are made with cotton wool and disposable, therefore, causing harm to the environment as they’re disposed of in non-biodegradable bags.
These washable makeup remover pads are made from Bamboo and can be washed and reused until you don’t find them effective.
Do they actually work?
I’ve had my reusable makeup pads for a few months now and I find they are just as effective as the disposable versions.
I still have some disposable ones for when I’m travelling or family comes to visit and need some makeup pads to remove makeup or cleanse, but I find I do not reach for them anymore.
If anything, I think these actually work better as the liquid doesn’t soak to the other side as much rendering it unusable which means I use both sides of the pad to cleanse.
How often do you have to wash them?
You do have to wash them after every use, but I put them in with the towels to wash and dry.
The laundry bag provided is terrible and the pads escape from it frequently so if you have an existing laundry bag or a laundry bag for your bras, then I would advise putting them in those when you come to wash.
They will be much more secure and won’t mix in with the rest of the washing.
What do the colours mean?
You can get all white ones or multicoloured ones like these, but in my set the colours mean:
- White for cleansing
- Blue for Toning
- Black for removing stubborn eye makeup or heavy makeup
Alongside my Naturyl Glow Cleansing Flannels, these have helped me to do my but for the environment while still looking after my skin.
Do they save you money?
Inevitably! They are a little bit pricy at £10 or more depending on what set you go for, but in the long run, I’ve not only saved money but I know I’m doing my bit for the environment.
How do you store them?
I store mine in what used to be my old makeup pad container that I got from Primark and Primark has some amazing storage solutions, I’d recommend you have a look there.
