I’m alive and kicking and ready to introduce you one of my favourite beauty finds of 2020: the reusable bamboo make-up remover pads by Lulu Nature.
I had been thinking about purchasing reusable make-up remover pads for a while (since I love the reusable Make-Up Eraser and it’s more budget-friendly dupe available at Action), but never made the plunge. It was my sister Anne who very kindly gifted me these reusable ones by Lulu Nature – last Christmas, I think? God, even in this hell-hole of a year, time flies.
So time for a review! These came in a pack of 12 pads made of 80% bamboo and 20% polyester – made in France, oui. Different from the make-up eraser cloths I mentioned earlier, these don’t work using just water. I use this in combination with Bioderma Sensibio H2O micellar water to cleanse my skin in the morning and at night time.
And they work well! They’re easy to use and don’t irritate my skin. I don’t love these for taking make-up off because I feel like the texture of the material is a little bit too rough to soak off mascara. I find that I lose a couple of eyelashes when I do – something that I barely experience when I use the make-up eraser cloths. For a quick cleanse using micellar water, these are perfect though. Quick, easy and durable: the way I like my beauty products in 2020.
Once used, I leave these out to dry and once a week, I toss ’em all in the washing machine (in a separate washing bag so I don’t lose any) at 60°C together with my towels. Afterwards, I do put these in the drier – but they do kinda tend to bunch op in there, so I leave them out to air-dry completely.
After using these for almost a year, I can honestly say that they hold up well even when washed weekly – and I strongly recommend everyone to give reusable make-up remover pads a try.
I’m not exactly sure where my sister got these specific ones, but you can find them here on Amazon (€ 7,99 for a pack of 12). If you’d like ordering from bol.com, these look pretty similar and these look like a good bamboo option, too.
