The Makeup Eraser || Qwerkity

Ever since my skin said "NO" to face wipes, I've been trying to find better ways of removing my make up; methods that will fully cleanse without harsh chemicals. When Qwerkity, a great website for sourcing unique gifts,  asked if I'd like to try out their Makeup Eraser* I obviously jumped at the chance. This product retails at £17.50, which seems pretty pricey for a make up remover, but when you consider that this can be reused, that isn't a bad price at all.
Essentially, you add water to the face cloth and it works to break down the oils that bind make up to the skin. This removes foundation perfectly. It took a little longer to remove eye makeup, but that's to be expected, and the opposite side of the cloth exfoliates your skin (an added bonus). I think that the premise of a make up remover that only needs water is unique and efficient, considering that travelling can often be a hassle when you have a million and one beauty products to fit inside your suitcase.

My only qualm with the eraser is that it takes a considerably longer period of time to pop this in the washing machine than it does to grab another makeup wipe from the drawer. If your skin responds well to wipes I can't see many benefits of changing to the eraser - I can however see major benefits if like me, you have dry and easily affected skin. Having to wash a product is a small price to pay for clear and glowing skin. I'm so excited by the prospect of ditching chemicals and adopting a travel friendly way to clean my face at the end of the day.
If you're looking for a gift for a makeup obsessed girl, but you don't know what makeup products they already have, then this is a wonderful alternative and still incredibly relevant to their interests. For people on the search for innovative skincare approaches, then this is a fab product to send their way. I was so sceptical that this would actually take off a full face of makeup, but voila! The proof is in the pudding (I mean, the face cloths). I can't imagine a more naturally effective product for make up removal, and if you're prepared to stick with the routine of washing it, then I think you'll get on with the Makeup Eraser.
*This product was sent to me to review, but all opinions are my own.

  2. I've watched a few videos and read a few reviews on these and everyone seems to really like them but not exactly anything life changing, sounds interesting enough to give it a try though!
