Eco Mind Organic Reusable Bamboo Cleansing Pads

Just a few weeks I made a pledge to REN Skincare that I would stop using cotton wool pads and instead switch to something much more sustainable in its place.  Then the lovely people over at Eco Mind got in touch to see if I wanted to try their reusable organic bamboo cleansing pads and I said yes.

Having looked online and asked on Instagram what people use in place of cotton wool, I decided to ask Google for some ideas too and honestly, with over 3.5million returns, it is an absolute minefield as to which ones are the best. So Eco Mind saved me hours of trawling reviews and websites.

Eco Mind reuseable make up pads are made from soft bamboo cotton fibres that are not just hypoallergenic but they are suitable for all skin types, plus they are also kind to that delicate skin around your eyes too. Our product is manufactured from GOTS organic bamboo cotton which is said to be certified to be free of harmful substances.  The pads arrive in a recyclable tub and inside you will find nestled inside a drawstring bag, two different types of cleansing pad. One is made from white bamboo cotton and the other from a black bamboo velour. Both pads have what is referred too as 'Custom Z stitching' which is used to prevent the two layers from slipping.

I have been using cotton wool pads for as long as I can remember, I've never given any thought on not using them until a few months ago, I use them with a toner, I use them with makeup remover and sometimes with a Micellar water depending on my mood. With these Organic Bamboo Cleansing pads I can do all of that and more.  

Using them for the first time was not as expected because I am used to cotton wool, but the big difference was how they felt on my skin, much smoother, much softer and since I started using them, I have seemingly used less eye makeup remover than I would usually do. When it comes to their size, they are slightly bigger than your average (Primark 50p ones) cotton wool pad and for me, I love that they come with a laundry bag so I can wash them and not lose them with wherever socks go to and never return. After washing them, they don't shrink and I can air dry them too.  

For me, these have been an amazing alternative to cotton wool and I have since purchased another set so that should I lose any, I have a back up.  Priced at just £15.99 on Amazon* they are such a good price point and obviously anything you can do switch too that is eco-friendly, is always going to be a plus point.




Have you made any changes to become more eco-friendly with your beauty routine?
