Make up remover towel

The perfect gift for any woman who wears cosmetics and makes a great stocking filler is the make-up remover towel.

Maintaining a skincare routine has become more prevalent in recent days, with numerous products available for cleansing, toning and moisturising.

As we age, taking care of our skin becomes increasingly important, and now more than ever we are constantly seeking ways to save money, help the environment and minimise waste.

Micellar lotions

Traditionally, I used make-up remover lotions for many years, starting with baby lotions and tissues during my younger days. Eventually, I transitioned to micellar lotion and cotton pads.

Complete Care refreshing micellar liquid 3-1 is a very gentle product that helps to remove all traces of makeup and they are still very much in circulation and used by many women today. So, what’s changed?

Micellar lotions and cosmetic pads vary in price, and while this make-up removal method is still effective and suitable for some, a few have switched to the latest product- the make-up remover towel.

We learn from early experimentation with cosmetics that to remove make-up, especially stubborn mascara or deep-coloured lipstick, we need a product that will efficiently and effectively remove such products.

Saving you money

With the rising cost of living, many of us are searching for ways to save money.

This goes beyond reducing heating or turning off lights when we’re not in a room.

Using a makeup remover towel that only requires water and is reusable makes a lot of sense for penning-pinching consumers.

■ Suitable for sensitive skin

■ Provides gentle exfoliation

Remove stubborn cosmetics


If you’re a regular make-up wearer looking to cut the continuous cost of buying cotton pads or makeup remover lotions, the make-up remover towel is a must-have.

It’s surprising how effective it is. Stubborn mascara can be challenging to remove without some rubbing, but the delicate eye area requires caution.

Waterproof mascara is excellent, especially during rainy days or emotional moments.

However, removing it at the end of the day can be frustrating, often requiring harsh soaps to eliminate excess residue. For those with sensitive skin, a gentle product is essential to prevent dryness and irritation. The soft microfibres in the towel feel smooth on the skin.

How do they work?

The gentle fibres in the towel provide light exfoliation, leaving your skin with a perfect base for the next application.

It’s hard to believe that a face towel requiring only water can efficiently remove all makeup traces with minimal effort and time.

After each use, the towel can be machine-washed or washed by hand. Avoid hot water or fabric softener and use a linen bag to prevent the towel from disappearing.

One side of the towel features exfoliation fibres to remove dead skin cells and promote a healthier glow, while the other side has shorter fibres for gentle makeup removal. Using a microfiber towel instead of disposable pads is an eco-friendly choice.

The makeup remover towel is a more efficient way to remove makeup compared to traditional methods.

it’s ideal for those who dislike the tedious process of removing makeup after a late night and prefer to deal with the aftermath in the morning.

If I had known how effective the makeup towel was, I would have started using it years ago. in addition to the towel, I  use Simple Purifying Gel Wash to cleanse and detox my skin.

These towels also make fantastic gifts for family and friends, as my sister greatly appreciated hers last year.

You can purchase them in most shops, supermarkets and online retailers. I purchased mine from FM World and they come in pink and purple.

    What a fabulous way to save money and your skin!  Having something reusable, which only uses water instead of harmful or oil-based cleansers, is a great gift idea or stocking stuffer!  There’s nothing wrong with using cotton pads and makeup remover, but wouldn’t it be better with a microfiber cloth?  This is brilliant.  Great job on the article, it was informative and easy to read without it being long-winded.
