How To Use
The Velvet Pads are the soft ones with grey edges, specially made for removing your makeup regularly.
You can use the pad dry or damp. When damp, it will be easier to slide over your skin, and will prevent it from absorbing too much of your product (to dampen it,simply soak it in water and squeeze it).
Then add your makeup remover or natural oil, as almond or jojoba oil, on the pad and proceed to remove your makeup.
Wash your face with water in case you want to take out any residues and continue with your normal routine.
You can also use the velvet pads for applying toners, creams, or even makeup powder if you are in need.
The Terry Pads are the scrub ones with brown edges, specially made for a deeper face cleansing or a gentle face exfoliation.
Simply soak the pad in warm water, squeeze it a little, and clean your face in a gentle circular motion.
You can also add your regular face cleanser or exfoliator on the pad for a deeper cleansing.
Remember to exfoliate maximum 2-3 times per week in order to prevent irritation,and to always moisturise your skin after you’re done.
Their small size and their handy cotton mesh bag make the pads really easy to clean. To make sure that the pads don’t disappear inside of the washing machine,put them all inside of the cotton bag and tie it up with the little ropes.
Machine Wash – They are washable at 40 – 60 °C. We recommend air drying and not ironing.
Hand wash – You can hand wash the terry pads with regular soap and water after cleaning your face, and reuse them a couple more times before putting them in the washing
machine. Do this only in the cases where you didn’t use the pads for removing makeup. Make sure to place them on a clean surface after use.
After using a strong foundation or waterproof mascara, it is possible that the pads get stained. Don’t panic and simply leave the pads soak in white vinegar and lemon for 1 hour (don’t worry if is more than that, even better), and then proceed to clean them in the washing machine.
If the pads are still stained after these steps, don’t worry, they can still be used.
