5 reasons to swap to Reusable Makeup Wipes - EcoVibe

5 reasons to swap to Reusable Makeup Wipes

Although quick and convenient, disposable makeup wipes are very drying on the skin and don't properly clean deep into pores. Single-use wipes are made up of a huge amount of plastic, which can take hundreds of years to break down, playing a huge role in the amount of waste going into landfills. Plus if flushed down toilets they cause sewer blockages and ocean pollution, impacting water quality and sea life.

Reusable facial cleansing pads are a far better option, plus, they’re far more cost-effective in the long run, and no more having to remember to re-buy them.

Find out our top 5 reasons why you should make the swap...

1. Conventional cotton pads are a disaster for the environment

The biggest issues with cotton pads come from the use of chemicals (especially pesticides), the consumption of water and the removal of wildlife habitats to make way for agricultural land to grow cotton. To use this cotton for only one use is really bad when you think about how much damage it causes. To make matters worse, disposable cotton pads come wrapped in single-use plastic which cannot be recycled.

Luckily, these Makeup Pad alternatives are reusable, helping to minimise the impact of the cotton industry. They can be reused over 1000 times, which helps reduce the demand for cotton as well as reducing the amount of waste ending up in landfills without having to sacrifice your beauty routine.

2. They're great on your skin

Reusable Makeup Pads work wonders on our skin, they are made from 70% bamboo and 30% organically sustainably grown cotton. The softness of these fabrics makes them perfect for all skin types (plus bamboo has hypoallergenic qualities).

The set includes 12 ultra-soft, velvet pads which are great for sensitive areas like the eyes and for removing everyday makeup. You can use these velvety-soft pads for applying toners, creams or even makeup powder if you feel like you need.

And 4 terry towel scrub pads which are perfect for cleaning off tenacious products (goodbye red lipstick stains!) and gently exfoliating the skin to help with circulation.

3. They're easy to look after

It’s really easy to look after your Reusable Makeup Pads. Once used, just gather them up in the mesh bag they come with. Then, wash them in the laundry machine at 40°C to kill off any bacteria. We’d also recommend air drying them and not ironing.

4. You’ll save money!

One of the best things about these Reusable Makeup Pads is that they’ll serve you for a long time - over 1000 washes! So by making one small investment, you’ll save loads of cash as well as minimising your impact on the environment.

5. Reusable wipes are plastic free

Lots of disposable cotton pads are actually made with synthetic fibres which is you guessed it single use plastic, plus they come packaged in a plastic sleeve. Considering that the average person gets through about one sleeve a month, that's a lot of wasted plastic.
