Reusable cotton pads have become an increasingly popular alternative to single-use cotton rounds. Less harmful to the environment and cheaper in the long run, used with makeup remover or your favourite micellar water, they’re an effective and sustainable beauty swap.

Over 12,500 Amazon shoppers have praised the Greenzla Reusable Makeup Remover Pads (20 Pack), hailing them a ‘lifesaver’ and ‘an excellent sustainable alternative’.

Even better, today the Reusable Makeup Remover Pads (20 Pack) are on sale for just £8.49 on Amazon (usually £12.99).

The eco-friendly, reusable and washable cleansing pads are ideal for removing makeup with your favourite cleanser or for applying toner. 

They are an easy swap if you’re trying to become more environmentally conscious because they can be used again and again.

The Greenzla Reusable Makeup Remover Pads (20 Pack) are made from organic, responsibly sourced bamboo cotton fabric. 

They’re also gentler on the skin and, unlike many cotton pads, are not filled with chemicals that are not only bad for your skin but will eventually filter into the sea, rivers and soil when disposed of.

They’re super easy to care for. Pop them into the biodegradable mesh bag provided, wash them in your normal laundry load at 40 degrees, and leave them to dry naturally.

They can be re-used up to 500 times, according to the brand, but if you ever feel like your pads have seen better days, cut them up and add them to your compost bin – this beats filling landfills with cotton pads.

On Amazon, beauty lovers noted that they lift makeup well and feel ‘so soft’ and gentle on the skin and eye area. Others claim the reusable cotton pads ‘wash lovely and come up like new’, and one shopper explained that the swap ‘has saved me so much money’.

‘I was a little sceptical of these pads,’ one shopper wrote in their review on Amazon. ‘But as I would like to do my bit for the environment regarding bathroom products, thought I’d give them a go.

‘And so pleased I did – they wash beautifully, even from mascara and foundation and look like new when washed. Lovely box too, which I use for storing them. Would highly recommend!’

‘They are lovely quality and remove makeup very well,’ another commented in their five-star review. ‘Absorbency is good, and they are really easy to clean. 

‘Rinse under the tap then into the wash, and they come out perfect each time. Great to know that they are reusable and so better for the environment.’

A third shopper wrote: ‘I love these, the packaging is lovely, the pads are so soft and kind to your face. I won’t be using cotton wool pads again!’
