Please note: I am not sponsored by this product, I just REALLY REALLY love it.
If I had to look back at 2018 and think about what my best purchase was, hands down it was my The Original Makeup Eraser makeup remover cloth. I used to be all about the wet makeup wipes, but after seeing how much waste and breakouts were produced from disposable wipes, I wanted a better solution. There I was, wandering the aisles of Costco and I spotted this peculiar item promising to erase my makeup (including waterproof mascara… what?!) with just warm water and this terry cloth like towel. If you know me, I’ll try anything once, so I bought it.
Much to my surprise, this towel did exactly what it said it would do. I have a tendency to be super lazy before bed, but I know I HAVE to take my makeup off before catching some Z’s or i’ll break out (great motivation, right?). What I like about the towel is there is a short fiber side you use for removing make up and the longer fiber side for exfoliating. Make up was off, skin was exfoliated, and I was ready for bed in minutes!
Here’s how to use the cloth:
Step 1: wash your cloth before first use
Step 2: wet your face with warm water
Step 3: wipe away (not too hard)
Step 4: use it until it starts getting very dirty
Step 5: throw it in the wash
I’ve had mine for about a year now and there’s no wear in sight. Don’t let the $20 price tag throw you off, it’s totally worth it. The Original Makeup Eraser promises to last for at least 1000 machine washes and I wash mine about every two weeks. I haven’t tried any of the knock offs on Amazon, but judging from the reviews, I rather stick to the Original Makeup Eraser. My biggest concern is for it last a long time and quality, so I rather buy and support something I trust.
If you’ve been looking for a cost-effective, chemical-free, environmentally friendly makeup removal system that actually works, looks like you’ve struck gold! I personally get the pink one because it’s easier to find in my laundry and I can easily see when it’s time to wash it.
If you want it in the next 2 days, you can find The Original Make Up Eraser on Amazon Prime!

Lastly, give yourself a pat on the back if you’ve decided to ditch wet wipes. According to the Makeup Remover website, about 7.6 billion pounds of wipes are thrown out each year! That’s absolutely ridiculous! Well, now that you found a better solution, come join the movement and save a little moola while you’re at it!
