Stay Sustainable: 5 Reusable Alternatives To Single-Use Makeup Removing Wipes


We all know what it’s like to feel lazy and use makeup removing wipes at the end of a long day. However, it’s important to understand the significant damage these can cause the environment. We often think it’s *just* one wipe, but when it piles up over and over, landfills and aquatic bodies take on the burden. 

So the next time you’re feeling too tired to go wash your face or double cleanse, these reusable makeup removing products could be your saviours. Yes, most of them are more expensive than the single-use wipes, but you’ve got to keep in mind that they also last months or even years. 

5 Reusable Makeup Removing Products That You Need To Buy ASAP

The Makeup Eraser is basically a towel that helps remove makeup with just water. It’s made up of plush microfiber material that removes dirt, grime. The product is really easy to use and somehow manages to clean the skin off even the clumpiest eyeliner. There’s a smooth side that can be used for cleansing, and the fibre surface on the other end doubles as an exfoliator. Use it and then put it for a wash and reuse it many times.

These are a set of two reusable and washable cleansing pads. You can use these to clean dirt, excess oil, exfoliate and smoothen the skin. They have straps at the back, which makes it easier for people to hold. However, if you have sensitive skin, use it very gently because it could feel a little harsh in the beginning.

Yes, these are expensive for a pack of three but their quality is superb. They’re extremely soft and gentle on the skin so people with redness and acne-prone skin can also use these. All they require is water and you can clean off any makeup from your skin. These are PETA-approved and non-toxic, which is the need of the hour in 2020.

These reusable makeup removing pads are durable and long-lasting. They’re super convenient and are extremely gentle on the skin. So people with sensitive and acne-prone skin can also switch to these and see a difference. Even the packaging is eco-friendly so it’s a win-win!

This is a unique product made with 100% organic cotton which breaks down makeup, gets rid of grime and dirt that have accumulated throughout the day. It even exfoliates the skin gently, removing all the dead skin cells, leaving behind smoother and softer skin. It’s reusable and isn’t loaded with chemicals and preservatives that disrupt the natural pH balance of the skin.
