Face Halo Review – Makeup Remover Reusable Pads that Work!

I first found out about Face Halo makeup remover reusable pads at a Priceline Event and the concept of them grasped me immediately! So, here’s my Face Halo review.

I’d read a lot of Face Halo reviews online and watched on YouTube – so I had high hopes. But that said, my skin is sensitive and has reacted to products in the past.

What is Face Halo?

Face Halo Makeup Remover pads launched in 2017 by a fellow mum in business, Lizzy Pike.

As a busy mum of three, she recognised that some women just didn’t always have the time to remove their makeup thoroughly before bed.

She wanted to create a quick, effective and safe way to remove makeup that wasn’t too messy and was natural.

Lizzy’s 15-year background in fibre technology inspired her to create Face Halo facial cleansing pads – natural makeup remover pads that were effective, non-toxic, environmentally friendly and cost-efficient.

You can find them here in Australia, here in the US or here in the UK.

They’re available in White or Black.

I’ve been consciously trying to reduce the amount of waste in our house and to reduce harmful chemicals. Two of the things I’ve stopped buying now are makeup wipes and makeup remover pads that can’t be reused. Being more sustainable and saving money is really important to us.

How does Face Halo work?

It’s so simple! Basically, you add cold or warm water to a Face Halo pad which loosens up your make up. The Halotech fibre strands can then penetrate pores to remove and trap make up, leaving you with clean quick in a flash.

I was dubious. After years of trying out different face washes, gels, oils and more, I didn’t think water was going to do the job of removing make up as well.

Except…it does! And with very little effort.

The last thing I want is to scrub and irritate my sensitive skin, but gentle circular movements with the pad was easily enough to remove my full coverage foundation, powder, eye makeup and mascara. And in seconds.

I know that water is the best makeup remover for sensitive skin like mine.

The Face Halo reusable face wipes pad is big enough that I feel I can rotate it and not be wiping my face with more make up – does that make sense?

Not the BEST picture but, you get the idea!

How to Clean Face Halo

Pretty simple – I just throw them in the washing machine after use! They come out perfectly clean and just as soft. Plus, they can be washed around 200 times. I’ve been using mine 1-2 times per day for a few months solidly now and they’re going strong.

I think they’re a great combination of a make up wipe and pad. The best makeup remover face wipes I’ve used before were still gentle but so expensive and definitely not good for the environment.

We’re making small changes at home to limit our carbon footprint and using Face Halo reusable makeup pads really helps with this.

Face Halo Review – My Thoughts

I wear full coverage foundation nearly every day because of my uneven skin tone and micropigmentation. I’ve always worried that the heavy make up isn’t properly removed and wondered if it was making my breakouts worse.

These reusable make up remover pads leave my face feeling super clean without drying it out. I have combination skin – it’s oily and shiny. At the same time though, some products can really dry it out.

I’ve tried oil makeup remover products before and love them, but my face just doesn’t feel ‘clean’ afterwards.

Many of my mascaras are waterproof and even some of the best eye makeup remover products I’ve used haven’t removed all of it. The Face Halo natural eye makeup remover pads are not irritating and with very little effort are a great mascara remover. If it’s feeling particularly ‘stuck’, I’ll wet the pad, hold it over my eye for a few seconds and then gentle wipe the mascara away.

I’m so happy to have found Face Halo’s microfiber makeup remover cleanser pads – they’ve made my bedtime routine even quicker.

I’ve just ordered some reusable cotton rounds from eBay too and will start to use them to apply toner when I want it. There are ten reusable makeup rounds in one pack – I’ll let you know how I find them when they arrive.

Face Halo are the best makeup remover wipes I’ve tried that help me in my mission to be more sustainable.

    Do you need to cleanse after using the Halo pads?
    If so do you cleanse and wipe of with a clean Halo pad?
    Thank you in advance
    Jane?
