Today is the second post of my year long AliExpress series, where I’ll be sharing AliExpress bargains here on my blog every single Saturday throughout 2020. There’s been so much hype about the Face Halo “original makeup remover”, I’ve been trying to find an AliExpress Face Halo dupe. If you’re new to the Face Halo, they’re circular cloths with non-toxic fibres which are designed to remove makeup to replace the need for makeup wipes.
The Face Halo Makeup Remover Pads are £17.95 for three pads working out at £5.98 per pad or you can purchase them individually for £7 from Boots. I managed to find an AliExpress Face Halo dupe for £2.21 for three pads meaning they’re only 73 pence each which is a massive saving. The seller sells the pads individually for £1.34 but it’s much better value to purchase them in a trio.
I didn’t expect them to be as big as they are. They are much bigger than they look online, with a soft satin edge surrounding the pads with a super fluffy cotton fibre pad on both sides. The pads are very soft and feel very gentle on the skin, and I was a total sceptic that a pad could remove makeup without needing a makeup remover, and they’re impressively effective.
The pads remove makeup quickly and effectively without makeup remover, but they work well alongside cleanser too. Face Halo claim that one of their pads replace up to 500 makeup wipes which is incredible, and obviously much better on the environment. I personally love using these AliExpress Face Halo dupe pads for removing swatches in-between blog photos. I usually swear by my Superdrug Micellar Wipes, but these pads are fab for quickly removing swatches without having to use a cleanser to remove them and it’s more gentle on the skin. They wash up nicely with a makeup brush cleanser, and it blows my mind that they’re only 75 pence each, I cannot recommend them enough.
You can purchase the makeup remover pads right here, from the same seller that I bought mine from.
