5 Best Makeup Removal Wipes You Should Try

Disposable makeup wipes - don't flush 'em

Along with baby wipes and toilet paper wipes, disposable makeup removing wipes and cottonwool rounds contribute to a huge volume of waste every year.   The wipes can either end up in landfill, where they can take hundreds of years to fully decompose or they flushed down toilets, creating fatbergs and marine pollution,  harming sea life.

Aside from their dodgy eco-impact, preservatives used to keep makeup removal wipes bacteria-free can easily irritate dry or sensitive skin. At Team Cheeky, we make a wide range of reusable makeup pads and wipes, which aren't just better for the environment, but for your skin and bank balance too!

We've compiled a list of the top 5 best makeup remover wipes and products that you should try.

Make up removal pads - Luxury

Within this selection you can find 10 padded plush and bamboo makeup removing pads, with several pretty designs to choose from.  These pads are larger than a standard cotton wool round at 11cm diameter and are made from soft plush on one side and then bamboo on the other. These large pads are padded, so perfect for using to remove an oily or soapy cleanser with just warm water. 

Luxury Makeup removal Kit with Storage Trug

In addition to selling our pads in packs of 5 or 10, we also sell them as kits which make a fantastic gift.  In this reusable makeup removal kit, you'll can find 10 padded plush and bamboo makeup removing pads, a wooden storage trug which is ideal for storing your pads in the bathroom and a tub of organic virgin coconut oil.   The organic virgin coconut oil is brilliant for using with the larger pads, your makeup will just melt from your face to be removed with the pad and warm water,  leaving your face feeling soft and clean.

Make up removal bamboo & cotton pads kit

Exfoliation helps remove the oldest dead skin cells on the outermost surface of the skin, the epidermis.  There are lots of professional treatments for exfoliation, including facepeels, AHA's and Glycolic acids, but you can also do it yourself safely and gently at home. Within this exfoliating makeup removing kit you can find 10 bamboo cotton exfoliating pads in black or white for exfoliating the face.  There's also 10 super soft organic cotton sherpa eye makeup removing pads plus organic virgin coconut oil again. This exfoliating kit comes with a storage bag so you can keep all of your products in one place or for handy travel usage.   These pads are smaller and thinner than the luxury bamboo plush pad, much more similar in texture and size to a standard cotton wool round and for this reason,  they're great for using with toners and lotions such as micellar water.

Luxury Makeup removal Kit with Travel bag

Containing 10 luxury large bamboo & plush makeup removing pads and 50ml coconut oil, this kit is very similar to the kit above, however includes a storage bag rather than a trug for ease of use when travelling - choose whichever option works best for you! 

Cheeky Wipes Eye Makeup remover pads

Again these organic sherpa cotton eye makeup remover pads are the same size as a standard cotton wool pad, at 8cm diameter.  However they are made from double layer organic cotton sherpa which is very soft and therefore perfect for the delicate eye area. Because these pads are thinner and less absorbent than the larger luxury pads, they're brilliant for using with toners such as micellar water, glycolic acid etc.

How to Use Reusable Makeup Remover Pads  with Oily / Soapy Cleansers

  • Smooth the coconut oil or your cleanser over your face with your fingertips, massaging it in well
  • Run a clean large bamboo pad under the hot tap
  • Wipe off the coconut oil and makeup using the pad
  • Run the pad under the cold tap and gently refresh your face
  • Wash the pads with your next clothes wash, then reuse!

How to Use Reusable Makeup Remover Pads with Micellar Water / Toners

  • Apply the toner, micellar water or acid treatment to the 8cm pad to make it wet through
  • Wipe face to remove makeup
  • Take a further pad and run under cold water
  • Gently refresh your face
  • Wash the pads with your next clothes wash, then reuse!
