How many single-use beauty products are you using a year? If you're wanting to reduce your beauty footprint a really simple change to make is to switch out a single use product for a reusable alternative.
Take cotton pads/balls for example. How many cotton balls or rounds do you toss out after a quick wipe and swipe every day? Cotton is problemtatic for a number of reasons including;
- Water Consumption. It takes as much water to make 1kg of cotton as the average person will drink in 2 years.
- Pesticides. These lessen soil quality and leach into waterways, impacting animals and humans living close by.
- Bleach. Cotton isn't pure white. White, single use cotton products are heavily bleached, which prevents them from being biodegrable, meaning...the landfills, erm, fill.
If you regularly use a Micellar Water and are looking for an effective, yet gentle way of easily removing make-up and cleansing skin that’s more environmentally friendly, well...this is the trial for you!
Micellar Reusable Eco Pads are Garnier's first ultra-soft, reusable microfiber pads that are washable up to 1000 times per pad, eliminating daily cotton pad waste.
Just add Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to the reusable Eco Pad, to gently cleanse dirt and impurities from skin and easily remove up to 100% visible make-up! Garnier Micellar Reusable Eco Pads and Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water are the perfect duo for cleansing skin and removing make-up without harsh rubbing, plus are suitable for the face, eyes and lips and sensitive skin.
After use you can easily hand wash the Eco Pad with soap & water and leave flat to dry, ready to use again. If you want a deeper cleanse for your pads you can toss them in the washing machine.
