Reusable Bamboo Face Wipes | A Review

Reusable Bamboo Face Wipes Review

Last year I did a review of reusable bamboo face wipes for a startup business, Our Earth Beauty Co.  This is an update of the review, now that I have used the bamboo face wipes for a year. I must say, I am not at all disappointed.  In fact, I love the wipes and I can see myself buying them when the ones I have are no longer reusable.  Having said that, the wipes are made from organic bamboo and are designed to last a very long time so it’s not something I will have to spend money on for at least another 12 months or longer.  That’s how good I think they are. Of course, this will depend on how much you use the wipes.

Daily Face Wipe Routine

I’m not an avid fan of makeup, so my daily makeup consists mainly of a concealer and eyeliner, with occasional foundation.  Every night, I use the natural and organic skincare products to remove make-up and tone my skin.  However, there are days when I can’t be bothered to do a nightly regime and that’s where these wipes are very useful. 

I’ve been using the reusable bamboo face wipes with organic coconut oil to remove the makeup for the last 12 months.  Each wipe lasts 2 removals as both sides of the wipe are usable.  The make-up gently slides off my skin and so does the coconut oil.  I have to admit, the wipes are very soft and gentle on the skin, much better than disposable face wipes or single use cotton wipes.

When I wash the wipes using the accompanying mesh laundry bag, the wipes look as good as new.  So far they’ve had several washes and they continue to do the job well.

Where to buy Reusable Bamboo Face Wipes

The pack, available from, Amazon for $16.99, approximately £13 and arrives with 10 pieces 100% Organic Bamboo Velvet makeup remover pads, 2 pieces 100% microfiber facial cleansing gloves and 1 reusable laundry bag.  

In the past I would have spent at least £4 a month on disposable face wipes.  Now, I can’t see myself going back.  The only down side is the company is US based, so you do have to pay duty.  However, if the product fits your ethos and is worth it, then why not make the switch?

What can I use instead of disposable makeup removal wipes?

Reusable face wipes or face pads that are made from bamboo or cotton are ideal. They are easily washable and will last several months.

Can I remove makeup from my face naturally?

Use natural oils such as olive, coconut or avocado to remove the makeup. Alternatively invest in a natural and organic cleanser that is suitable for your skin type.

How can I wash reusable makeup pads?

Additional washing is usually not required, just place the cotton or bamboo pads in the washing machine with your routine washing, ideally when washing light coloured clothes.
