Will my makeup come off with these discs?
Yes, the larger size makes it even easier to remove your makeup. It is also suitable for sensitive skin because Bamboo is super soft and anti-bacterial by itself.
Also included are 2 (terry) reusable cotton pads, for stubborn makeup. Our washable scrub discs are made with a more expensive process where the loops are smaller. This has the advantage for you that they are less likely to snag, lint, and more durable.
Does the makeup come off after washing?
Yes, you can wash the discs at 40-60 degrees.
Can these washable cotton pads go in the dryer?
I do not recommend this. The scrub discs (dark gray edge) are already sensitive that they will wavy at the edge, but with the dryer this effect worsens. They shrink little to not at all. The discs do remain usable.
Are these suitable for sensitive areas such as my eyelids and lips?
Sure. The daily discs in light cream are so soft that they are suitable for sensitive areas. You only need two types of discs, soft discs and exfoliating discs for any heavy makeup.
Fits through the mailbox
The packaging is made to fit through the mailbox. That way the letter carrier carries less air and you don't have to stay home or pick up somewhere unnecessarily.
We have now spent 6 months testing over 30 different reusable makeup pads from 2-ply to 4-ply from 5 different manufacturers. With different combinations of bamboo, cotton, and polyester, stitching finish, edge thickness, loop size, and softness.
In our experience, 8cm is the ideal size, not too big that it becomes unwieldy, and not too small to be effective. With 3-ply, the discs retain their shape better. The stitching pattern keeps the discs from sliding over each other and have the function of removing make up just a little better.
What are points of interest?
We also think it is important to highlight the drawbacks. First of all, it is not a 100% replacement for traditional cotton pads. For example, it is not suitable for removing nail polish. This remains on the discs. Furthermore, it absorbs a little more lotion. In the e-book and email we have tips to help reduce this. The cotton pads may contain polyester. The benefits of this is longer life, better makeup removal, and washes out makeup better.
