-Sponsored Content - As we all should, I care about the environment and have been making conscious product switches not just within my beauty routine but my entire lifestyle within the last eighteen or so months. Admittedly I have a long way to go but I have found that each small step not only feels like a victory but has been so much easier - not to mention often more cost effective - than I had initially anticipated, none more so than investing in Reusable Make-up Remover Pads.
Pre-lockdown I wore make-up on an almost daily basis, often reaching for two, three, four cotton pads to remove any mascara and lingering foundation without as much as a second though. All those little, round pads, quickly tally up don't they? Although they may not be a huge contributor to landfill in the grand scheme of things, ultimately that's where they end up; with more and more brands such as Resolute Bamboo Care offering more environmentally sound solutions, such as Reusable Make-up Remover Pads, it makes sense to make the switch once you can afford to.
After a little research, I settled on Resolute Bamboo Care, Reusable Make-up Remover Pads as they are reasonably priced at £11.99 for ten - thus meaning I have enough for the average week of make-up wear without having to continually wash and dry the pads. I also appreciate that Resolute Bamboo Care supply a wash/care bag (100% unbleached cotton) and that all other packaging is not only recyclable but made from 100% recycled cardboard - at last a company that practises what it preaches!
Each of the Resolute Bamboo Care, Reusable Make-up Remover Pads are constructed from 70% Bamboo and 30% Cotton, the concept being that such ratio provides a fabric that is gentle to the skin yet tough enough to survive countless washes - a juggling act that can't have been easy to figure out. For those curious, the average use of Resolute Bamboo Care, Reusable Make-up Remover Pads is one thousand washes - so nearly over three years of daily use if you do the math. Washing the Resolute Bamboo Care, Reusable Make-up Remover Pads is fairly straightforward, simply pop in the supplied wash bag, pop in the washing machine (30° setting), avoiding fabric softener - you can of course wash by hand. For best results allow to air dry before re-using.
So other than saving the environment and of course some pocket change along the way, what are the benefits? Believe it or not, they are far more effective at removing make-up; the larger and somewhat textured surface, efficiently and effectively sweeps off even the most stubborn of make-up products. They are also wonderful for applying products such as toner and if you don't mind sacrificing a pad to never be used on your face again - you can also use it remove nail polish with acetone, eliminating the need for throw-away cotton pads in your home once and all. As the Resolute Bamboo Care, Reusable Make-up Remover Pads are larger in size, compared to a standard cotton pad, you will require far less per usage too.
If you are looking to make a lasting change within your beauty routine that requires next to no effort, then this is the product for you and the environment.
