These reusable make-up wipes are an environmentally friendly way to clean your skin. Unlike cotton wool pads or disposable make-up wipes, these can be used again and again.
- Pack of 7 - one for each day
- Handmade in Dorset with soft, pure 100% brushed cotton

Directions for use
- Simply use the wipe with your favoured skin cleanser/toner/make up remover.
- Once used pop your wipes in the washing machine with the rest of your washing.
- The sooner your wipes are washed the less likely they are to be stained.
- I recommend washing them at 30 degrees, alternatively you could hand wash them.
- Then simply air dry and use again!
- Expect 10-15% shrinkage after the first wash due to fabric used.

Moonie - Reusable Cotton Pads (7 pack)
What does it replace and is it an improvement?
Most beauty routines suggest cleansing and toning your skin twice a day; in the morning and before bed. This can require 2 to 4 cotton wool pads a day, which would mean that for one year, one person is using between 730 and 1,460 cotton wool pads alone - not including any pads used for removing eye make-up etc. If you start looking at the bigger picture, if every person is doing this, that ends up being a huge amount of cotton wool being thrown away every day! And, shop bought cotton wool isn't always the most ethically produced either.
These reusable face wips are double sided, so one wipe should cover you for your entire routine before being popped in the wash to reuse.
In Superdrug, a pack of 300 disposable standard cotton wool pads is £3. Based on my calculations above, if one person uses 730 to 1,460 pads per year roughly, this would be roughly 2.5 to 5 packs per year (£7.50 to £15.00). These wipes are £6.99 and provided they are looked after, should last longer than a year so are worth the initial investment as it should save you money in the long run.
What is my review?
Reusable face wipes are a massive must for me and are probably one of the easiest swaps you can make to become zero-waste! They don't take any adjustment from our normal habits, except that we put our used wipes in the wash instead of in the bin. These wipes are so easy to use. and are beautifully soft on your skin. Perfect to add to any skin routine.
