Being a busy mom means that my night routine can be a bit hectic. Having simple makeup remover wipes that work helps my routine move along without much effort. When I am juggling getting kids into the bath and ready for bed, simple is my best friend.
Reusable face cleansing wipes are not only efficient to a nighttime routine of makeup removal and getting ready for bed. They also are great at keep waste down. Washable makeup remover pads don’t get thrown away into landfills.
According to studies, it takes years for makeup wipes to breakdown in landfills. Flushing them down the toilet is even worse. Reusable facial cleansing cloths are where it is at.
I find that the best simple makeup remover wipes I have used are the originals that were added to my collection from JOY. Yes, the huggable hangers lady. That woman can invent!
Simple Makeup Remover Wipes that Work
JOY Miracle Makeup Remover Towel Sets are often sold on HSN for around $10. The set comes with two larger towels and three smaller towels. They aren’t always available but if you can grab a set when they are, I highly recommend them.
Removing your makeup in the evening and cleansing your face from the pollution of every day is so important for proper skincare. Letting oils, dirt, makeup, and other things build up on our skin causes clogged pores and breakouts.
I have had my original reusable face wipes from JOY for nearly two years and they still look brand new. I think it is all in how well you care for them too.
How do you wash washable makeup remover pads?
First, do not wash these with fabric softener. This might break down the microfiber fabric faster. Simple wash them on warm/cold with a small amount of detergent and let them hang dry. Do not put them into the dryer.
By following this simple way to wash your reusable face wipes, they should last you a very long time.
Are washable makeup remover pads good for skin?
I am not a dermatologist, so this is only my opinion. I find that using reusable face wipes on my skin takes off a lot of my makeup at night. Including my eye makeup.
I also like that washable makeup remover pads are gentler on my skin than using other harsh soaps and water. The microfiber doesn’t rub off layers of my skin. If I need to remove any dead layers, I can use a dermabrasion method.
It isn’t a perfect science and I still wash my face with a cleanser, but it starts the process. I still recommend using a good toner to remove all the dirt and residue from your skin. Reusable face wipes are great to get off most of the makeup.
Can I use a cleanser with washable makeup remover pads?
No, do not use a cleanser with the washable makeup remover pads. Also, do not use soap. Simply use water.
It sounds crazy that water is all you need with reusable facial cleansing wipes, but it works. I have had family and friends think I am nuts until they tried it for themselves.
What are other options for simple makeup remover wipes that work?
If you need other options for simple makeup remover wipes if you cannot get your hands on the JOY brand, check out these below. I have heard from others that these are great or I have used them myself.
Other simple makeup remover wipes that work:
Can’t I just use a normal hand towel to wash my face?
Yes, you probably could. However, hand towels and makeup mean nasty stains. Having a separate set of reusable face wipes means you can keep those hand towels nice.
Plus, most washable makeup remover pads are made from microfiber or other material that is gentle on skin. Hand towels can off be rough and remove too many layers of skin. Nobody likes that burning feeling. I know I don’t.
Can I make my own simple makeup remover wipes?
Absolutely! If you are feeling crafty, making your own reusable facial cleansing wipes can be very simple. There are plenty of tutorials online and I found this video below to share with you on how to create your own DIY reusable face wipes.
Using Reusable Facial Wipes
The other great thing about simple makeup remover wipes is that they pack well for travel. Hotel towels do a number on my skin. The chemicals most hotels use to wash their towels cause my face to break out instantly.
I like to use reusable face wipes to wash my face when I am traveling to avoid this. Agitated skin is not fun when you are traveling. Especially to different climates that might already be doing a number on your skin.
Simple makeup remover wipes can also be rinsed and used a couple of times before needing to be washed. I tend to use mine twice before throwing it into the laundry. When I am finished wiping off my makeup, I simply rinse my towel and then hang it to dry by the loophole.
Reusable face wipes also make a great gift for a birthday or the holidays. As I mentioned before, my family and friends love theirs. I think you will too.
They are also great for kids and anyone with sensitive skin to wash off dirt. Reusable face wipes don’t have to be used just as a makeup remover. My kids love to use them when they come in from playing outdoors to wipe off their faces. My son tends to break out a lot on his face so using microfiber and water is best for his skin type.
Reusable facial cleansing cloths are a game changer. They have helped with my night routine by encouraging me to wash my face before bed. When I skip my nighttime routine and do not use my reusable face wipes, my skin feels it and I tend to break out.
Simple makeup remover wipes are cost-effective, lower waste and work. The JOY brand and others mentioned are reliable and get the job done. I recommend checking them out and finding which brand works best for you.
