These hand made eco-friendly reusable makeup wipes are unique to Make it Wild. Designed and made by Helen, they have pretty cotton fabric on one side, and soft towelling on the other, for gentle exfoliation. They come as a set of seven, one for each day of the week, in a little cotton muslin bag. This is perfect to keep them in, especially when you’re travelling. It is also ideal to keep them together when you wash them.
Disposable makeup wipes are a significant source of plastic in our oceans – they contain fibres which take hundreds of years to break down. They are frequently found in the stomachs of turtles and other creatures, who mistake them for jelly fish. They can’t be digested, and can ultimately fill the stomach and lead to starvation.
The chemicals on disposable wipes can be very harsh for your skin, and harmful to the environment.
These reusable makeup wipes can be washed and used over and over again – better for your skin, your purse, and the planet!
They are prewashed for softness. They can be used with any type of cleanser or toner, or with warm water.
If the wipes become heavily marked with makeup, rinse straight after use. Then when you’re ready, pop them all together in the washing machine, in the laundry bag provided or other ‘delicates’ bag. Wash on a gentle cycle, without fabric conditioner, which affects absorbency. Ideally, dry flat. Heavy makeup stains might permanently discolour the wipes.
We currently have a ‘Summer’ range, featuring peach / soft green and a ‘Winter’ range, featuring burgundy and light blue.
