As a loyal Chloe Morello fan, I’ve admittedly been an avid Face Halo user for a year now. Since being gifted the value pack of 3 last Christmas, my makeup removal regime has become seamless. Finishing a long day with a face full of makeup can more often than not, be a tedious, oily and oxidised mess. Face Halo’s bomb initiative makes the removal stage a mere blip on the radar (and I’m SO down with that).

Using my @face.halo to remove my makeup with only water! No chemicals, no expensive or harsh products, no waste! Think about how many makeup wipes you've contributed to landfill in the past year ? Our @face.halo are just $22 for a pack of 3 which lasts me over 6 months! Just wash after use with soap & put in the wash once a week! Can be washed up to 200 times ? #ecobeauty #facehalo
What you need to know:
Face Halo wins brownie points by default because they’re recyclable, non toxic & reusable.
Face Halo, my right hand man, is a palm sized, fuzzy (but incredibly soft) pad that removes makeup with, (wait for it) nothing but water. The makeup removal puff is made up of extremely fine microfibers that work to lift makeup, oil and any of the days pollution from the skin and trap them in the material. The fact that the makeup is locked into the pad, means no makeup smudging–eliminating that post-red lip clown mouth. Now, I’m confident enough to sit behind my computer screen and tell you all, that the Face Halo is the real deal. No gimmicks, no tricks. It has worked significantly better than what I initially expected, especially in terms of removing eye makeup.
I became conditioned to using 3+ Simple wipes to remove the last remnants of mascara from the creases of my under eye bags. With Face Halo, I simply have to wet the pad, give my face a once over, and then turn the (double sided) pad and finish off the eyes. The removal process has been reduced to 30 ish seconds, with less rubbing than usual. My skin is cleansed, softer and without those awful panda eyes.
What makes the Face Halo even more appealing, is that further cleansing is totally optional. I tend to go in with another cleanser most nights, but on the nights I simply can’t be stuffed, my skin is still completely bare from the initial FH removal.
The only downfall I could pick out, is the fact that the original Halo’s are white, and therefore get quite visibly dirty. Luckily, the Face Halo PRO has just been released, and the sleek black pads eliminate this issue completely (and are perfect for those nights you need to remove a heavy layer of makeup).
Before anyone asks, I’m aware taking makeup off isn’t the most excruciating task in the world, but it’s a pain and I simply do not have the time.
In terms of the hygiene and upkeep of the glorious little pads, it’s advised you wash the pad with hot soapy water following each use. After a week of use, throw it in the washing machine (for up to 200 washes may I add!!), and you’re ready to endure another week of seamless makeup removal.
PSA: I’ve also found the Face Halo extremely useful when removing face masks, instead of trying to splash water on my face from the sink and wetting my entire body (don’t say I never do anything for you!)
