Makeup Remover Pads
We know how convenient disposable makeup wipes can be as self-admitted night owls. If you’re like me, switching to reusable makeup remover pads may seem like a sacrifice rather than a rational decision. However, we’ve noticed how the clean-beauty trend has affected how many individuals pack their makeup kits with more sustainable, conscientious products, as well as the innovative ways businesses have created to remove that makeup. Cosmetic removal cloths and reusable cotton pads are not only more environmentally friendly (by reducing landfill waste generated by disposable cotton rounds and makeup wipes), but they’re also more cost-effective.
BEST FOR BEGINNERS
Wegreeco Reusable Cotton Rounds
This set is soft, absorbent, and comes in a variety of fun pastel colors. The 16-pack of rounds is affordable and may be used for up to 1,000 washes. That’s 16,000 disposable cotton rounds saved! One Amazon customer states, “I was a little concerned about moving to reusable face rounds.” “I liked them so much more than the disposables that I bought another pack!”
BEST FOR TONERS
ProCIV Reusable Makeup Remover Pads
This bamboo and cotton blend is ideal for all skin types, including oily and dry. The two-layer construction minimizes moisturizer or toner loss, so you don’t have to worry about wasting your favorite products. It’s extremely popular with Amazon buyers.
BEST WITH VARIETY
Crafts and the City Reusable Makeup Remover Pads
We adore the variety of textures in these NYC-designed reusable rounds: ten bamboo charcoal and ten bamboo velvet, each mixed with microfiber and having a cotton inner layer. The charcoal is wonderful for removing makeup and oil, while the velvet is great for sliding on lotions and toners. They also come with a little washing bag to keep them from getting lost in the wash.
BEST FOR MICELLAR WATER
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Eco Pads
If you already use Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water, you’ll adore these environmental pads, which are intended to work with the product. Micellar water is a multifunctional two-in-one solution that is popular in France for its ability to wash skin and remove makeup. Garnier’s rounds are ideal for absorbing and applying water; simply soak the pad in water and gently wipe away grime and makeup.
BEST FOR HEAVY MAKEUP
Face Halo Reusable Makeup Remover Pads
These heavy-duty rounds, believe it or not, don’t even require makeup remover! Simply dampen the Face Halo and let the unique fibers to clean your pores and remove grease or makeup. The usage of these bigger pads comes at a cost: you can only reuse them 200 times. While this is less than some of our other options, it is still 199 times more than the throwaway alternative.
BEST FOR TRAVELLERS
Kitsch Eco-Friendly Cleansing Kit
This convenient package comes with enough rounds for a week’s worth of cleaning, as well as an exfoliating sponge, a wash towel, and a mesh zip wash bag, making the complete set ideal for packing into luggage for your next vacation. In addition, the package doubles as a waterproof travel pouch that may be reused.
BEST MULTIPLE-USE PACK
Daily Concepts Daily Bio Cotton Makeup Removers
This bundle of organic reusable cotton pads may not all be “round,” but that’s part of what makes it so great: The two tiny rounds are great for removing eye makeup, while the squares are ideal for removing makeup from the entire face. As long as your makeup isn’t waterproof, use a makeup remover, a daily cleanser, or just water.
