I received these today. Immediately I opened them and checked out the quality of the materials and I was happy before I even tried them out!
On one side the fabric is soft and velvety fluffy wonderfulness lol. The other side I'd say is more exfoliating yet is still very soft but without the fluff it is instead a soft knitted fabric.
The sewn edges are very well done and have no visible flaws. No loose strings. The edges are consistently sewn on each of the included pads.
I tried these out in three ways once they arrived. First as an eye makeup remover...They were so much better than ANY cotton round I have EVER tried for this purpose!! Honest! I hate when bits of cotton get left behind on my eyelids or fibers somehow get stuck in my lashes...or worse...in my eye!! I have always been annoyed by that when removing eye makeup. These eliminate the issue entirely!
Second I used the pad to clease my face and it worked well. However, I'd recommend using something a bit bigger for routine daily cleansing. That's just my opinion though.
The last thing I tried was applying toner. For that these were perfect! My face felt so refreshed and incredibly soft and smooth afterwards. I credit a lot of that to the use of these pads bc in combination with the toner. These remove dry dead skin when you use the smooth knitted side.
I think these could even be used to remove facial masks and for many other purposes. Once I try them out in more ways, I'll give an update!
I recommend these fully! To friends and family and everyone into self-care and beauty products that are eco friendly!!
Oh!! BTW, after use the pads rinsed clean easily and I had no makeup stains. I'm sure that there are some makeups that will stain these...but mine didn't. This time at least...but I feel that these are going to last me a nice amount of time and really save me some bucks in the long run!!
