These washable pads are a great zero-waste alternative to traditional cotton wool
pads, cotton balls, makeup wipes and even exfoliating pads.
They can be reused over and over again and help to reduce the incredible amount
of waste ending up in landfills without sacrificing your beauty routine.
All pads are made from a mixture of cotton and bamboo fibers. The softness of
these fabrics makes the pads perfect for all skin types.
We recommend you to wash the pads before the first use. Go to the “Washing
Instructions” section to see how.
4USE THE VELVET
PADS TO REMOVE
The Velvet Pads are the soft ones with grey edges, specially made for removing your makeup regularly.
You can use the pad dry or damp. When damp, it will be easier to slide over your
skin, and will prevent it from absorbing too much of your product (to dampen it,
simply soak it in water and squeeze it). Then add your makeup remover or natural
oil, as almond or jojoba oil, on the pad and proceed to remove your makeup.
Wash your face with water in case you want to take out any residues and continue
with your normal routine.
You can also use the velvet pads for applying toners, creams, or even makeup
powder if you are in need at the moment (or just let your natural beauty shine)
USE THE TERRY
PADS TO CLEAN
The Terry Pads are the scrub ones with brown edges, specially made for a deeper
face cleansing or a gentle face exfoliation.
Simply soak the pad in warm water, squeeze it a little, and clean your face in a
gentle circular motion. You can also add your regular face cleanser or exfoliator on the pad for a deeper cleansing.
Remember to exfoliate maximum 2-3 times per week in order to prevent irritation,
and to always moisturize your skin after you’re done.
Their small size and their handy cotton mesh bag make the pads really easy to
clean. To make sure that the pads don’t disappear inside of the washing machine,
put them all inside of the cotton bag and tie it up with the little ropes.
They are washable at 40 – 60 °C. We recommend airdrying and not ironing.
You can hand wash the terry pads with regular soap and water after cleaning your
face, and reuse them a couple more times before putting them in the washing machine.
Do this only in the cases where you didn’t use the pads for removing makeup. Make
sure to place them on a clean surface after use.
After using a strong foundation or waterproof mascara, it is possible that the pads
get stained. Don’t panic and simply leave the pads soak in white vinegar and lemon
for 1 hour (don’t worry if is more than that, even better), and then proceed to clean them in the washing machine.
If the pads are still stained after these steps, don’t worry, they can still be used!
The use of the pads is of course not limited to face care routines.
Over time, you will figure out for yourself which ones you like using for what. For
example, you can use the soft ones to clean a baby’s face, or even repurpose them to clean screens or other surfaces.
