Wipes for me

I use wipes too for getting my makeup off ,I don't like using cotton wool and makeup remover --you can guarantee I always get the make up remover in my eyes .Rather then using makeup wipes -I always use baby wipes and it has to be Huggies-I've tried others and they aggravate my face -my skin is quite sensitive ony face -when using soap it makes my skin blotchy .I'm. Ok with just water after to make sure my face is free from makeup .

I have Ponds make up wipes, and Cetaphil wipes (I use those more as body cleaners, only on the face as first level cleaners if I did something that left my face very dirty, usually lots of cleaning or gardening work). And cotton rounds to use with micellar water and liquid removers.

I use what I need based on the job to be done. The wipes are good for first level make up removal, but you generally have to go over everything a few times and there is still a little left over. The rounds and a good micellar water I use on my eyes and sometimes after the wipes. Other types of removers I use mainly to use up since I had them before discovering my favorite micellar water.

The cotton wool balls I won't use in case the threads get loose.

You can buy re-usable and washable makeup remover pads. I haven't tried them yet since I don't wear too much makeup very often, I am getting back into it with new products, and everything is a one shot use due to sensitivity. I would have to wash everything in the laundry after each use. For me, it may not be worth it.

Washable pads

I know they’re not for everyone but I really rate them for removing make up. If I had to choose just between wipes or disposable cotton pads though, I would go for the cotton pads.

vote for natural fabrics

It's obvious that natural fabrics are quite expensive, especially silk, linen and wool. Cotton is quite affordable, I never miss a chance to use berrylook customer service when I am planning to purchase another cotton item.
