A Quick Guide to Reusable Makeup Remover Pads

Posted by SwiftPropel on

In the modern times, our makeup and beauty product trends are not only about quality products, they’re also moving towards quality products that are sustainable. With the growing waste disposal problem that the beauty industry is dealing with, products that contribute to a sustainable future are having a surge in their popularity. One such product is reusable makeup remover pads. If you’re keen to use reusable makeup pads in your routine, read on.

Reusable makeup pads can be used to remove your makeup multiple times. Unlike regular pads, you don’t have to throw these out after just a single use. With these, you can remove the makeup, wash the reusable makeup remover pad, and use it again the next time you want to take your makeup off.

How do you use reusable makeup remover pads

  • Saturate your pads in a liquid makeup remover

The first step to wiping away your makeup is to saturate your reusable makeup pads with a liquid makeup remover of your choice. As some reusable makeup remover pads are meant to be used only with water, it’s advisable to check the manufacturer’s usage directions for the pads you’re using.

  • Wipe your face gently with the pad

Once you’ve soaked your reusable makeup remover pad, the next step is to gently wipe it over your face and remove the makeup. Based on the size of your makeup pad, you may have to pivot to a new corner or a new pad to remove makeup from the whole face. Keep soaking the pads and wipe your face until all of your makeup is removed.

There are more ways you can use reusable makeup remover pads other than wiping off your makeup look. You can incorporate these in your skincare regimen in the following ways:


There are people who don’t like exfoliating their skin with bare hands. Well, you can use reusable makeup remover pads for mechanical exfoliation as they possess great exfoliation abilities. You can use these to apply face scrub, by gently rubbing them over your face.


When you need a no-rinse face cleanse while traveling or at the gym, a reusable makeup remover pad is a great way for applying no-rinse cleansers. Similar to using these to remove your makeup, you can saturate the pad and wipe it over your face for cleansing the skin.

Applying Toner

You can also put your reusable makeup pads to good use for applying toner. Dab your reusable makeup pad in toner, and use it to apply the toner on your skin.

Removing a Face Mask

When you splash water over your face to remove a face mask, it takes some time and effort. A faster way of doing this is to use a reusable makeup remover pad. Dab your makeup pad into lukewarm water and take off that face mask with superior ease.

Reusable makeup remover pads are great alternatives to regular cotton pads. Not only are these more sustainable for the environment, they are more cost-efficient as you can use them over a period of time. Try them once and you would want to stick with them.
