Using a Microfiber Makeup Remover Cloth

January 18, 2019

For most of us, well-established beauty routine is a very important part of our day. From cleansing to toning, applying serum and moisturising, every step of your regimen plays a part in making sure that your skin stays healthy and youthful. One of the most important steps of an evening skincare regimen for women is removing all makeup from the skin. Women use many different methods for this, but the best choice would be to use a microfibre makeup remover cloth. We’ll tell you why…

Some of the most popular ways that women remove their make up include disposable makeup wipes, liquid makeup remover, or just a good old fashioned flannel with soap and water. There are definite pros and cons to all of these options, which is why many women may want to consider making the switch to a microfibre makeup remover cloth. Using a microfibre makeup remover cloth is gentler on your skin, more effective at removing all of your makeup, and is a better choice for the environment. A microfibre makeup remover cloth can even help with some skin issues, like acne!

How Microfibre Makeup Remover Cloths Work

Microfibre makeup removing cloths, like our Eye Cleansing Pad, use finely woven fibres to gently remove your make up effectively, with just water. These cloths are packed with 480,000 fibres per cm2, giving them astounding cleaning power.

These fibres are extremely effective and breaking up and removing makeup from the surface of the skin, as well as removing dead skin cells and dirt from the face. Our fibres are more advanced than your typical microfibre because we use high-quality fibres specifically designed to remove makeup from the skin.

How to use a Microfibre Face Cleansing Cloth

Microfibre face cleansing cloths couldn’t be easier to use. All you need to do is wet the cloth with warm water and rub in gentle circular motions across the surface of your face. These cloths are particularly effective at removing stubborn eye makeup like mascara and eyeliner, which can be quite difficult to remove with just a facial cleanser or a wipe.

If you tend to wear waterproof or long-wear makeup, you may find that adding a small amount of gentle facial cleanser to the microfibre cloth will help remove all traces of your makeup.

Why You Should Be a Microfibre Makeup Remover Cloth

·         They’re More Sustainable. Unlike disposable makeup removal cloths, a microfibre cloth can be used for many years, over and over again. Simply wash your cloth in the washing machine regularly – our cloths can be washed over 300 times meaning they are more sustainable.

·         They’re Good for Acne. Using a microfibre makeup remover cloth can help prevent acne. Because makeup can clog the pores or dry out the skin, you may find your face breaking out in mild to serious acne. By not properly removing your makeup, you could be setting yourself up for breakouts and spots. Because microfibre makeup remover cloths are so effective at removing makeup, they should help prevent future breakouts from this cause. If other factors are giving you acne (hormones, certain foods, etc) they would need to be addressed separately.

·         They’re Gentle on the Skin. If you have sensitive skin that reacts to cleansers or liquid makeup removers, a microfibre cloth could be a life saver. Some people have the type of skin that can be easily irritated when using cleansers or makeup removers and have to search for the mildest products available. But what is milder than water? Because microfibre makeup remover cloths are so effective without the aid of cleansers, they are very gentle on the skin.

·         They Don’t Contain Harmful Chemicals. Not only can some cleansers or makeup removers irritate sensitive skin, but they can also contain harsh chemicals or chemicals that are bad for the environment. All you need when using a microfibre makeup remover cloth is warm water, so you can completely avoid the use of chemicals.
