Biodegradable Bamboo + Vegan + Cruelty Free + Minimal Packaging + Carbon Offset Program
These are so well built. My wife loved it. Good size for more coverage and well-padded hence soft. High quality and comes in great packaging. Highly recommended to anyone.
Our (my wife and I) 2 cents below:
- Very good quality makeup remover pads made of bamboo fabric
- These are large enough to provide good coverage
- Super soft and good enough padding. Very comfortable. This was the best feature my wife liked since she is very particular about it otherwise won't use
- These are absorbent enough
- Super reasonably priced for a set of 14 pads. 7 pairs for a week is the idea of selling 14 as a set. Good thoughts.
- Washable pads and so can be used for long and not just use and throw. Comes with 1 mini laundry bag in the package
- Great attention to details and very thoughtful packaging
- Vegan and cruelty-free product if that matters to you
- None that I see for this price and the quality
These little rounds are a great alternative to disposable cotton rounds when using astringent or toner. The fabric readily takes in the liquid to be able to use just like a disposable cotton round, but without the waste or added expense of repeated buying.
The fabric reminds me very much of a blend between flannel and fleece. These appear to be 2 layers (front and back) of material, (which I like because it's not over-absorbing my astringent/toner and wasting it). The edges are have a machine-serge around them which will help prolong their life and shape. I do have a bit of a qualm with a loop tag on each one, but it's easily moved out of the way, or one could choose to hang their fabric round by it. Or, just cut it off.
There is a little drawstring bag that these can be stored in, or washed in that's included. However, prior experience with similar reusable fabric rounds makes me decide to only use the bag to store the clean ones in. I'd suggest washing these in a larger lingerie bag, as doing so seems to get me better results (they can move more freely in the washer and dryer).
I like the softness of these, about a 4 out of 5 level of softness with 5 being the highest. These aren't overly padded, which I also like for liquid application. The dark color will keep these from looking too bad if using to remove eye makeup as well. These are a great fit for my purpose of applying witch hazel. Thanks for reading.
It is not something you really think about, but the number of pads used each day for toner, make up removal, etc., is pretty horrifying. This is the perfect alternative. These pads are the perfect size and so wonderfully soft. They are easy to clean and because they are black any stains are not visible. The mini laundry bag ensures the pads do not get lost when machine washing. The pads are good quality and worth every penny.
Their product description has convinced me this is the way to go to help save the planet:
“BAMBOO IS COOL
Bamboo is grown without the use of pesticides or insecticides.
Bamboo forests absorb 35% more CO2 than a regular mixed forest.
Bamboo can grow up to 91 cm per day (!!!) making it an amazing renewable resource
We source MOSO bamboo (Phyllostachys edulis), not a variety that pandas eat. As a vegan & cruelty-free brand it was crucial to us to not steal pandas food!”
You get a nice amount of cotton pad for the price compare to some brands. These cotton pad are pretty soft! Plus it's a Canadian brand!

One year in and still no pilling. Daily use and the stitching has held up. Just as good as the day I bought them.

I bought these in September. My daughter and I use them every day so they have been well used and washed many times. They are holding up great. I haven't experienced any of the pilling another reviewer mentioned. They are still soft and the stitching has held up. No complaints so far.
I love these. So does my teenage daughter. One is enough to wash your whole face. A little micellar water and I can easily wipe off all my makeup, then flip over to use the clean side for a good scrub if needed. I love that they are grey because I never need to worry about make up stains. And the little wash bag is a great touch. All in all, I'd give these 10 stars if I could. I highly recommend.
