Review: Reusable Cotton Rounds from Etsy

A year ago or so, I first learned about reusable cotton rounds from the blog Wardrobe Oxygen.  I know I could do better in making my lifestyle more earth-friendly, and this looked like a good way to do so.

Side note: If you are not reading Wardrobe Oxygen yet, I highly recommend it. It is a great fashion blog for REAL women like me, who don’t have unlimited funds to make themselves look business-appropriate.

Reusable rounds can be used where ever you use disposable cotton rounds, although I don’t recommend you use them for removing nail polish. Many Etsy sellers make them out of flannel or cotton.  I use them for removing my makeup.

I bought my rounds from the Etsy seller Green Little Nest. She makes them out of leftover pieces of flannel from her other projects, so the patterns are so cute! After using them, I rinse them (although I really don’t think  you need to) and put them in a lingerie bag.  Once a week, I throw the lingerie bag in the wash long with my other laundry.

Price: $13 for 30, plus shipping. I use about 3 each time I remove my makeup.

Pros:

  • Earth friendly!
  • These are super soft and don’t irritate my skin
  • The patterns are so cute and make me feel a little bit happier when I remove my makeup.
  • These get softer the more you wash them. In fact, I recommend that you wash them a few times before using them for the first time.

Cons:

  • I feel that these absorb more product than my normal cotton rounds.  If I am using Bioderma or other water-based makeup removers, I wet the rounds under the sink first, and squeeze out the excess water before applying the remover.

 

Would I repurchase? Yes, and I think these make a great gift!

 

Hope you enjoyed my review!
