If you wear makeup every day you'll understand how removing it can be a chore. Finding a good makeup remover that gets rid of foundation, mascara and other products while being gentle on the skin and not leaving a residue, is also a challenge. From an eco-friendly standpoint, it also creates a lot of waste — think of the stacks of cotton pads you'll throw away over a year, not to mention how many bottles of makeup remover you'll go through in a lifetime.

The Makeup Eraser is such a simple, genius idea, you'll wonder why it wasn't dreamt up any earlier. This soft, reusable cloth is made of 100 per cent, handcrafted polyester and is able to remove all traces of makeup from BB cream to matte lipsticks. All you need is warm water. Simply wet the cloth and use it to rub makeup off — but remember not to rub too hard. The secret is in the weave of the cloth that lifts makeup instead of smearing it all over your face. 

Each cloth can be machine washed and can withstand up to 1,000 washes. When you've used one portion of the cloth, simply move on to another part, so you don't have to wash it every day. With all the talk about sustainability and creating less waste, not to mention how much money you'll save in a year, the Makeup Eraser is a brilliant buy. Currently available in hot pink, expect more colours to be available in the upcoming months.
