How To Effectively Remove Makeup With Reusable Cotton Rounds

Updated: Mar 14

How are you removing your makeup every night?

To allow our skin to breathe and heal at night, it is essential that we first remove our makeup properly. By just using a face wash or makeup wipes, we end up just smearing makeup & oil throughout our face, causing excess sebum, pollution & dust to stay trapped in our pores.

Makeup removers are oil-based cleansers that are specifically designed to dissolve the pigments & waterproof formulations that exist in our makeup, and we should always cleanse away makeup first. Tip: even if you’ve only applied tinted moisturiser or sunscreen, you should still use a makeup remover first!

Here are some tips on how to effectively cleanse away makeup, whether you’re using a cleansing oil, cleansing balm or milk, or simple micellar water.

Cleansing with micellar water

  • Pour micellar water liberally onto a dry cotton round.

  • Hold to lash area for several seconds for the liquid to be absorbed and gently wipe away eye makeup.

  • Repeat for rest of face, taking care to work the rounds into the nose / mouth lines, hairline, and jawline.

  • Rinse makeup round and wipe again around the face until all makeup has been removed.

Cleansing with oil or cream-based makeup removers

  • Pour cleansing oil or scoop balm/cream onto dry palms.

  • Use the heat of your hand to warm up the product slightly then spread thoroughly over dry face.

  • Dampen reusable cotton round with warm water and massage onto skin with gentle circular motions, focusing on areas that need attention (like eye makeup).

  • Rinse the cotton round, and use it to wipe off excess oil or balm.

  • Followup with a foaming facial wash for double-cleansing.

After you’ve removed your makeup, if you prefer to double-cleanse, you can reuse that same facial round again. Simply pump your facial wash directly onto the sponge and work around the face in small circular motions. Rinse the sponge and wipe till clean. Our reusable cotton rounds are made in organic cotton and provide gentle exfoliation thats safe for daily use, even for sensitive or babies’ skin.

Even on no makeup days, using a cotton round or washcloth will help to remove dirt & oil from easily missed areas like your hairline, and nose folds. Plus there is no drip & no mess unlike splashing water on your face!

Don’t forget to followup with a natural (non-astringent) toner, and moisturiser as part of your skincare routine. Take your time, choose clean products that are full of natural ingredients that are good for your skin, and you’ll soon look forward to your self care time.
