Are you always looking for eco-friendly options? Have you ever tried reusable cotton pads?

Until a few days ago, I had never tried them, but I love finding new eco-friendly options and products. Most of all, I like to let my readers know where to find ways to make a positive impact on Mother Nature. 😎

I suppose it has a lot to do with the way I was brought up. When I was a kid almost everything was eco-friendly. Ah yes, I already told you I’m not a spring chicken. Does that actually mean that I am more the fall type or worst-case scenario a winter chicken? 😕

Talking about chickens makes me think of the smell when my grandmother plucked one of hers. She would burn the feathers inside the stove. Not the most pleasant smell, I can assure you. 😖

It also reminds me of the times we went to the chicken vendor. At Easter time, when you came to buy a chicken, they gave you a cute little chick on top. They kept them in a large crate. 😦

You could see those cuties running around from one side to the other. Nobody thought about how they would feel. That’s just the way it was, no questions asked. 😟

I always was a little sad we never took any home, but then again, I don’t think it would have made me happy to see them get caught in our cat’s claws. Actually, I’m pretty sure of it. 😬

Let’s get back to those eco-friendly options I was talking about. Bambooo Beauty sent me these reusable cotton pads in exchange for my honest opinion. 😍

Eco-Friendly, reusable cotton pads

Making a difference is in the little things, in the everyday products we use, throw away and which have a negative impact on the environment. In personal care products, a lot of plastic and disposable products are used and there is actually little choice for the user in sustainable alternatives.

Bambooo Beauty offers us a sustainable everyday option and a pleasant experience at the same time!

Why reusable cotton pads?

We use about 1000 cotton pads a year. They are made of cotton, a plant species that need up to 20,000 liters of water per kilo! These all end up in the trash.

We think that’s a shame! And that’s not even taken into consideration the transport of raw materials or packaging materials.

The bamboo cotton pads are transported once and can be used up to 1000 times! The cotton pads have 3 layers, making it possible to use the front and back for different purposes.

Why bamboo?

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, some species grow up to 1 meter a day! Bamboo absorbs the most CO2 of all plants and reduces the greenhouse effect most effectively.

Bamboo is also the most effective way to purify wastewater from heavy metals from the ground.

How long will they last?

You can wash the cotton pads by hand after use or wash them in the washing bag with the regular wash for thorough cleaning.

By rinsing them in between, make-up residues will not absorb as quickly and you can use the pads several times before they have to be washed.

After purchase, you will also receive an e-book with detailed washing instructions! Because the cotton wool is 3-layered, you can use both front and back for different purposes, such as cleaning the eyes and then the rest of your face.

The reusable cotton pads can last up to 1000 washes. If you put one pad a day in the wash, this is equivalent to over 40 years of enjoyment!

My opinion on the reusable cotton pads

I love the wooden container, and the type of wood is a perfect fit for our bathroom shelves. Because of the handy laundry bag, you can easily put them in the washing machine together with your other laundry. 😎

They are also nice and soft on my face, so I can also use them on the delicate under-eye skin. They are about the same size as the throwaway pads I used to use. 😊

Whether or not you are a spring chicken like me, having a good skincare routine is very important. I mostly use the white ones to clean my face, and the black ones to apply my face serum. One thing is certain. No more throwaway cotton pads for me. 😊

If you are interested in buying those reusable cotton pads, I’ve got great news for you.
