Reusable Cotton Rounds vs. Disposable Cotton Rounds

We’ve all had those nights when we’re totally exhausted and don’t possess the slightest energy to remove our makeup or wash our face throughly before bed. However, sleeping in your makeup constantly can do some serious long-term damage to the skin; apart from ruining our pillow cases, sleeping with make-up on overtime can cause breakouts, dull skin, wrinkles and clogged pores. Reusable Cotton Rounds and Disposable Cotton Rounds are both a quick and easy way to clean and/or tone your skin but is there a real difference in cleansing property?

 

LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE SIMILARITIES

Although they may vary in size and material, reusable cotton rounds and disposable cotton rounds are both effective in cleansing your skin and helping to remove build-up. Both are great tools for aiding in most cosmetic needs including the application of cleansers and astringents they can also to aid in cleaning cuts and scrapes or applying medication/products to the skin.

 

WHAT MAKES THEM DIFFERENT?

DISPOSABLE COTTON ROUNDS 
  • For all skin types
  • Perfect for all cosmetic needs including the application of cleansers and astringents, and the removal of makeup and nail polish
  • Can be used to clean cuts and/or scrapes or applying medication to the skin
  • Soaks up more product compared to reusable cotton rounds and therefore requires a larger quantity per use to be completely affective
  • If non-organic can be commercially chlorine bleached/dyed and treated
  • Harmful to the environment and therefore non-sustainable
  • Can leave (chemical) synthetic fibers on the surface of the skin
  • Less cost effective compared to reusable cotton rounds annually
  • Requires 2 or 3 in quantity to effectively remove makeup, nail polish or tone skin
  • Great for everyday use
  • Disposable

 

REUSABLE COTTON ROUNDS 

Reusable cotton rounds are a fantastic way to remove makeup and naturally exfoliate your skin while limiting disposables that go directly into landfills. They also help create a more green and sustainable environment thus increasing engagement in ethical lifestyle practices. Reusable cotton rounds are my personal favorite cleansing agents here’s why:

  • For all skin types
  • Perfect for all cosmetic needs including the application of cleansers and astringents
  • Can be used to clean cuts and/or scrapes or applying medication to the skin
  • Safer for your skin compared to disposable cotton rounds
  • Reusable and Washable
  • Won’t leave (chemical or synthetic) shed fibers on the surface of the skin
  • Environmentally friendly and sustainable
  • Larger compared to disposable cotton rounds and therefore requires only 1 per cleansing activity
  • Can be more absorbent compared to disposable and therefore will not exorbitantly soak up large amounts of product.
  • Can last for a lifetime!
  • More cost effective annually
  • Great for everyday use
  • More aesthetically pleasing compared to basic cotton rounds
