Very disappointed. They are stiff and hard - even when moistened. Can't use them at all. Will search for another similar product.

The concept is amazing but I personally find these to be too small, their diameter is 40mm and I think 60mm would be better.
Also, I am not sure if I am doing something wrong but when I put my toner onto the round it seems to get very stiff and hard, I will try tomorrow putting a bit of water on first and then toner but the size is still an issue for me.
They are made very well and they seem like a great product overall I think I may take some time adjusting.

I bought these to use as my daily face cleaning instead of single use cotton pads. I recommend that you dampen them slightly beforehand and then use your product (otherwise they're very absorbent and you'll use your product very quickly!)
08/02/2021, By Suzie
great for reducing single-use waste as well as the environmental cost of manufacturing the usual cotton wool pads

i wash mine right after use and then throw them in a delicates bag in the laundry weekly too

Wasn't easy to use for toner.
10/11/2020, By Zoe
Soak in cold water before using and wash with warm water when done. I love not having to throw any cotton pads away.
23/10/2020, By Pearlene
Love it
30/09/2020, By Bonte
Soaks up a lot of my products
18/09/2020, By Tiana
I love not having to throw anything away after using my toner, it absorbs a lot of the toner but I just wet it slightly before to prevent that.

I bought these for my Mum, and whilst she found them very soft, she found that she had to use way more product than she ordinarily does.

I find the texture a bit rough for the face and it absorbs a lot of product. This might be a good exfoliating product but not for everyday use.
12/07/2020, By Cathryn
Happy with making the switch to re-usable pads! They took some getting used to if you're used to the standard cotton wool. The pouch they come in is helpful and cute too.
26/05/2020, By Rea
was keen to try a green alternative, but dont like these. I used it for toner and most is just absorbed into the fabric.
23/03/2020, By Zayaan
I love that it's sustainable but I'm honestly not a fan of using it to apply my toner. I've started spraying my toner on my face so I don't need it for that. I do however love using it with coconut oil as make up remover before washing my face
23/02/2020, By Anne
I use them to apply toner, but not a huge fan for make-up removal. the feeling is quite different, but maybe one needs a bit of time to get use to them. definetily worth to try as a sustainable solution for all the waste we normally produce with disposable wipes.
27/01/2020, By Carla
Super soft and easy to clean.
12/01/2020, By Mianca
So so soft on my sensitive skin! It washes my face so softly and doesn’t over scrub my skin.
10/10/2019, By Candice
I wasn't sure about these, as I was used to using silicone sponges to remove eye make-up. This product is surprisingly soft and what I love most is that they are reusable and biodegradable - it's a win-win! It would be great if the rounds were slightly bigger in size. Otherwise, happy!
20/09/2019, By Theresa
Lovely quality, soft on your skin. I love it! A great alternative to disposable face wipes
05/09/2019, By Christine
Very good quality
22/07/2019, By CC
I have been searching for an alternative to disposable face wipes and cotton wool. I was very happy when I saw these and based on the reviews I ordered some. I am unfortunately very disappointed. The product doesn't absorb the cleanser I use, it just runs through and I find them too hard for my skin especially on the eye lids. My search continues...
05/07/2019, By Britt
Reusable rounds take some time getting used to as we tend to be accustom to the disposable rounds which feel like they work better, BUT these are a great addition to anyone looking to reduce their waste. They are so easy to wash too - very happy with this purchase.
03/07/2019, By Nina
Great intentions behind the product but the material is quite rough against the skin and proves difficult to use at times
03/05/2019, By Tasneem
Soft & silky, easy to use and to clean
10/04/2019, By Shané
So happy with my first purchase towards a waste-free beauty routine! The rounds are soft enough to use for removing eye make-up and very easy to clean.
28/02/2019, By Tania
LOVE these! So easy to clean and so easy to use. So soft. Very happy with this purchase
13/11/2018, By Elvar
These face rounds are perfect for my sensitive skin! They are extremely soft, but they have enough texture to remove every last bit of make-up from my face. In addition, they are easy to wash and re-use. I love this product.
28/08/2018, By Sian
A great way to reduce your waste. I've been using these for two weeks and they're lovely. It's textured enough to really remove makeup or dirt from your face, but really soft so it won't hurt you or damage your skin. Love the cute bag, too!
27/08/2018, By Adrienne
Another essential in the journey towards creating a plastic free beauty routine. These take a while to get used to but work well enough. They are easy to clean and soft on your face. Important to have a good toner to use though.
26/08/2018, By Lauren
Love my face rounds! I have stopped using disposable face wipes and now use my face rounds. They are great to use with cleanser to remove make up and also as an exfoliator.
16/08/2018, By Niké
These cotton rounds are soft and works perfectly for removing make-up! There's 7 in a pack- enough to use 'till your weekly laundry day. One of my cotton rounds did, however, unravel but was fixable with a needle and threat
31/07/2018, By Alana
Great idea and beautifully soft cotton rounds! However, they're probably not the best for applying toner as they soak up a LOT of the product before you have time to apply to face. Otherwise great for makeup removal
15/06/2018, By Beckey707
Very nice! Will crochet a few myself! Love the product and easy to use. The stitches could be a bit tighter but I assume there will be some shrinkage in the laundry
22/05/2018, By Pam
It is very different compared to using cotton wool, but it definitely does the job. Worth it, seeing as it is a more environmental option, as opposed to using cotton wool pads.
19/04/2018, By Emily
They're such a cool product, easy to wash and use.

I recommend if you use them to remove mascara to simply rinse with soap and water straight away; and then do them in the laundry later. To prevent staining.
11/04/2018, By Zee
I use these with a facial cleanser as a make-up remover and they’re fantastic! I like that they’re not super soft, so you can give your face a nice gentle scrub.
22/01/2018, By Casey
I love to use this with my facial cleanser. Soft when dry and stiffens up a little when wet, so it is great when washing your face. It's great that they can just be popped into the washing machine in the wash bag and reused. Haven't tried to remove nail polish just yet with them but think that the darker coloured ones would be better for that. Will post about those when I get them at a point.
26/12/2017, By Mieke
Not as soft as I imagined it would be, and it won't fill the gap where I use cotton rounds to remove nail polish. But useful in its own way, and causes less waste in my home.
