Makeup remover can be very useful and convenient for busy people. Unlike reusable makeup removal pads, they are usually only good for one usage. Single-use makeup wipes are great, and I’m not going to lie. These wipes often contain skin-loving ingredients such as aloe vera and Hyaluronic acid. This allows us to remove makeup, sweat, and grime while keeping our skin hydrated. They are convenient, but they can be very harmful to the environment because they only last for one use. We know that we can find the same skin-loving ingredients within cleansers, serums and other beauty products, so it might be time to switch to reusable makeup removal pads.
Makeup Eraser Makeup Remover Cloth
A makeup Eraser is a towel which can be used to remove makeup using only water. This is a towel that works in the same way as a washcloth. However, it’s made of a microfiber material which picks up dirt and makeup very easily and wipes away even the most stubborn eyeliner without irritating. You can use the smooth side for cleansing, and the fibre surface at the other end acts as an exfoliator. You can also use it and then put it in the wash.
The Makeup Mitty (3 Pack)
The pointed tip of this little mitt allows you to reach all the areas around your eyes and remove mascara, highlighter, shadow, and highlighter. It feels soft and fluffy like a teddy bear’s fur, so that it won’t irritate your skin. This mitt can be used as a washcloth with your favourite cleanser. It will remove your makeup and help you cleanse and exfoliate.
Pai The Aileron Organic Muslin Cloths (3 Pack)
Pai Skincare’s muslin towels are an excellent alternative to using your wipes as exfoliators. These gentle scrubbers can be used without chemical peel pads or physical exfoliants. You can wash them with mild soap or put them in the washing machine after using them. These are meant to be used with the Pai Camellia Cleanser, one of our favourites for sensitive skin. However, you can use them with any cleansing product you prefer.
PMD Clean Facial Cleansing Equipment
There are many cleaning products on the market. PMD’s cleansing device is unique because it doesn’t have any bristles and no disposable brush heads. It is made entirely of silicone and vibrates to remove makeup. One of these can last for years, which is pretty impressive if you ask my friends.
Face Halo Makeup Removers (3-Pack)
The Face Halo works as a round cotton towel. The 3D texture works well for removing mascara and lipstick from small crevices. It’s about the same size as three standard cotton rounds, which can do your entire face. These can be washed in the same way as the towels.
Bamboo Nursing Pads (10-Pack) – Washable, Reusable Bamboo
These are nipple pads that can be used by breastfeeding moms. However, some beauty hackers have found a way to use them as a substitute for cotton pads. Because the fabric is made for sensitive nursing nipples, it is extremely soft. These are a great alternative to makeup wipes.
Jane Iredale Magic Mitt Makeup Remover
Jane Iredale Magic Mitt is another reusable option that only requires water. It fits like your basic self-tanning mitt. The plush towel material is non-irritating and can be used to clean your skin. If properly cared for, it can last twice as long as a regular washcloth.
