Made from bamboo, these reuseable makeup pads are just £8.99 for 20 – there's a cheeky £1 off right now. Not only are they a zero-waste alternative for home, but you can easily pack them in your gym bag for washing your face post-workout, and they can be popped in your makeup bag when you go on holiday.
A member of the Real Homes team uses these, and can report only good things: they arrive in plastic-free packaging, they can be washed with your sheets and towels on a hot wash – simply pop them in the laundry bag that comes with them and you're good to go.
And of course, they're easy on the purse strings and are suuuuper soft on your face. Even after you've washed them five plus times, they're still soft as they were at first use.

Everyone will be buying these soon – why not be the first to rave about them to your friends? You trendsetter you.
