Reusable makeup remover pads, what are they?
We are used to single-use cotton pads, which are thrown away directly after use. Still, there is a better alternative for the environment that is very simple: bamboo makeup pads.
This is a small piece of cloth, often made of vegetal fibre, which is used in exactly the same way as the classic make-up remover pads, except that, unlike the latter, it can be reused over and over again. All you have to do is wash it.
Why use bamboo makeup pads?
The reusable makeup remover pads will help you take much better care of your face. Its quality and softness will make it easier than ever to stop using disposable make-up remover pads.
The ecological impact of traditional cotton
Conventional cotton pads are a disaster for the environment. Cotton is highly polluting because it is grown with massive use of pesticides, fertilisers, and water. Therefore, cotton should not be used as a disposable item.
To make matters worse, cotton pads are usually packaged in plastic. Plastic packaging is a significant contributor to the environmental problem we face today, as it generates a lot of waste and has an impact on the planet's ecosystem. Indeed, due to poor product design, and the lack of clear legislation, the majority of this plastic ends up in landfills or worse, directly in nature.
Luckily, there are reusable alternatives, empowering you to create a waste-free makeup removal routine.
Zero-waste make-up removal
Avoid disposable cotton pads and use reusable makeup remover pads to reduce your daily waste. You can use reusable pads or a soft cloth. The pads can simply be washed in the machine. They come with a laundry bag to wash them together. This simple routine helps to avoid producing a lot of waste.

Is it best to use them once and then wash them, or can they be rinsed and used on both sides before putting them in the washing machine?
To remove any residue, you can rinse the bamboo reusable pads after each use. Consider cleaning them in the washing machine after several uses, or when using them for tenacious makeup. Ultimately, it depends on your personal preference.
Once used, simply gather the used bamboo makeup pads in the cotton mesh bag. Then, wash them in the laundry machine at 40°C to 60°C. For more tips and tricks on how to take care of your bamboo reusable pads, a digital user manual is included with your order.
