Makeup removing cloths are everywhere right now, but I’d never actually tried one for myself before. There’s such a big focus on environmentally conscious beauty choices, and the biggest positive of using one of these cloths, is because of how many times it can be reused without using wipes and cotton wool.
I have to admit I knew that wipes were bad because they don’t break down, but I never understood why cotton was seen as being ‘pad’ but it’s the throw away culture, and the pesticides needed to create the cotton too. The Brushworks Makeup Remover Cloth is just £5.99 and I couldn’t wait to try it.
“The Brushworks Make Up Remover Cloth is the perfect reusable cloth for leaving your face feeling fresh, clean and healthy after every use.
Using just warm water this cloth should be applied to the face in a circular motion to remove 100% of your make up.
This Brushworks Make up Remover Cloth can be machine washed; and is 100% Cruelty-Free & Vegan Friendly.“
The Brushworks Makeup Remover Cloth has pretty bold claims on the back of the packaging. It claims to be able to remove 100% of your makeup, using just water and it can remove sports, theatrical, stage and waterproof makeup. It also claims that it can be used upto 1000 times, as it’s fully machine washable so you can just chuck into the washing machine to clean it between uses.
The cloth is exceptionally soft, and feels as if it’s made from velour, it’s that soft. The cloth is quite long and narrow, with rounded ends. Each of the two sides of the cloth have a slightly different texture, but they’re both very soft. When you wet the cloth, it feels unlike any other flannel or makeup removal cloth I’ve tried. It scrunches easily so you can remove any remnants of water before use.
It does a decent job at removing makeup, and my favourite use for the cloth is for removing swatches from my hand when taking blog photos. I usually use Micellar Wipes for removing swatches, but this cloth is kinder on the environment and I like that you can wash it in the washing machine to clean it. I wouldn’t say it removes 100% of makeup, as I do have to go in with an eye makeup remover to remove most of my eye makeup, but it does a nice job at removing my face makeup and it feels very soft when doing so.
