I waited an anticipation for the organic cosmetic rounds to arrive. As I have been using organic cotton rounds the disposable ones, and have experienced some unpleasant irritations.
Being green I do not care to contribute to any land fill. I also do not like the fact that little strands of cotton would stick to my face when removing make up etc. Little strands of cotton on my eyelashes after removing eye makeup that would get in my eye! This was a big ordeal for me nightly. I knew there had to be a better way.
I then decided to make my own cosmetic rounds out of organic bamboo velour fabric. O.k. like I have time to do that, Ha... I gave it a go as I'm an experienced seamstress. Honestly it turned into a time consuming ordeal. I do run a business out of my home, take care of children, a husband and play the handyman too. I finished 3 homemade cosmetic rounds,well not really round. They were not firm enough to wipe my make up remover off steadily and 3 was just not going to get me thru the week.
When I found Better for GrownUps I was so ecstatic that they made several reusable organic cotton items. Other items include reusable tissues and family wipes(these will be offered in the future for purchase at their site). The cool thing is they come in a reloadable dispensing box! After you use them you put them in an organic bag for washing. This bag is included when you purchase the fully loaded option. After washing and drying you reload your dispensing box.
Who is behind Better for GrownUps? Better for GrownUps was created by a stay-at-home-Dad!.That in my opinion is awesome. Leah is the wife of this stay-at-home-Dad Zac, she is founder of Better For Babies http://www.betterforbabies.com/
Better for Babies carries everything organic you need for diapering baby as well as other natural items.
My Better For GrownUps package arrived! I am very pleased to announce I love them...I'm very impressed with several facts. The reloadable box is very sturdy. The organic reusable cotton rounds dispense easily. Ohh the rounds have one side of color, such as orange , or blue with the other side being off white.Here is the description on their site "Each face round is two layers of organic, fair trade cotton velour which means it is super soft." They are truly soft.. I have used them nightly with my organic make up remover with pure pleasure. No more strands of cotton in my eye! I use them when applying my toner, they absorb my toner nicely, I have also used them as a cool eye compress. I applied my eye solution to 2 organic cotton rounds, then placed them in the freezer for several minutes. I placed them over my eyes for rejuvenation benefits. Fantastic!! The organic cotton rounds can also be used with my foaming face wash for gentle exfoliation! My 7 year old loves them too. She scraped her knee over the weekend and I cleansed her boo boo with one of the organic cotton rounds. She commented on how soft the round felt. We are going to continue to use our Better For GrownUps organic reusable rounds for several other tasks. Really when you think outside of the box you can come up with many ways to use them. We are going to use them to buff our nails after applying our nail strengthener. Can't wait!
I'm going to be purchasing several boxes of the Organic reusable reloadable cotton rounds to give as gifts. I think adding a bottle of Joyful Girl Eye make up remover, Toner, Eye Solution compress and a bottle of our Nail strengthener will make a fantastic GREEN GIFT!
The price is right too! One reloadable box filled with 30 organic cotton rounds and an organic bag for washing them is 24.50 The bag for washing is really nifty too. Its a nice size , you can add other delicate items to the bag for when washing your rounds.. Lots of uses for this product.
Better For GrownUps has generously offered to give one of my followers a
Reloadable dispensing box containing 30 rounds and a little bag in which to wash them.
