There's a good chance your makeup removing techniques evolved a little something like this: in high school, you scrubbed it away with harsh cleansers. In college, you switched to greasy eye makeup cleanser and a foaming face wash. And then...makeup remover wipes.
No more worrying about soaps and oils: you could just throw that plastic package in your luggage and go. Sure, they were expensive and sometimes they made your face break out, but they were convenient. Besides—what else is there?
We're about to blow your mind. Introducing our Sweet Relief Makeup Remover Cloths. They remove even stubborn makeup using only water. Plus, they can be washed and reused over and over again. Still not convinced? Here are some more reasons why you need to ditch the makeup remover addiction.
Makeup remover wipes are gross.
Firstly, they don't actually work that well. What they're actually doing is smearing makeup, dirt, oil, and bacteria around your face and removing the top layer, so you think your makeup is removed.
Don't believe us? Follow your makeup remover wipes by gently rubbing your face with micellar water on a cotton ball. Then look. Then scream. It's not pretty: your makeup remover wipes leave so much behind.
And what do they rely on to "remove" makeup? Emulsifiers, formaldehyde-releasing chemicals, solubilizers, and surfactants.
That's why your face breaks out after using makeup remover wipes. Stop abusing your skin.
Makeup remover wipes are terrible for the planet.
Each disposable makeup remover wipe takes 100 years to break down in a landfill. And then there's the actual package, which is made of thick and thin plastics, and no one's really certain how long that takes to break down (but a whole lot longer than even the longest skincare routine).
Plus, you don't just buy one package. If you're like the most remover wipe-addicted people, you use one wipe every.single.day. Think of the kind of damage that's doing to our planet. Think of the koalas.
Makeup remover wipes are expensive.
On the low end, makeup remover wipes cost about $7/25 wipes. That means you're spending over $84 per year just to remove your makeup.
Meanwhile, our Sweet Relief Makeup Remover Cloths are $20 for 5. Heck, you could go crazy and buy two sets, and you'd still be nowhere near what you used to spend on disposable wipes. And they can be washed and reused for years.
Save your money and your skin. Break the disposable makeup remover addiction.
