Eco-Friendly Options in The Netherlands - Bambooo Beauty Reusable Cotton Pads

Hi There..... Are you always looking for eco-friendly options? Have you ever tried reusable cotton pads?

Until a few days ago, I had never tried them, but I love finding new eco-friendly options and products. Most of all I like to let my readers know where to find ways to make a positive impact on Mother Nature. 😎

I suppose it has a lot to do with the way I was brought up. When I was a kid almost everything was eco-friendly. Ah yes, I already told you I'm not a spring chicken. Does that actually mean that I am more the fall type or worst-case scenario a winter chicken? πŸ˜•

Talking about chickens makes me think of the smell when my grandmother plucked one of hers. She would burn the feathers inside the stove. Not the most pleasant smell, I can assure you. πŸ˜–

It also reminds me of the times we went to the chicken vendor. At Easter time, when you came to buy a chicken they gave you a cute little chick on top. They kept them in a large crate. 😦

You could see those cuties running around from one side to the other. Nobody thought about how they would feel. That's just the way it was, no questions asked. 😟

I always was a little sad we never took any home, but then again I don't think it would have made me happy to see them get caught in our cat's claws. Actually, I'm pretty sure of it. 😬

Let's get back to those eco-friendly options I was talking about. Bambooo Beauty sent me these reusable cotton pads in exchange for my honest opinion. 😍

Eco-Friendly, reusable cotton pads

Making a difference is in the little things, in the everyday products we use, throw away and which have a negative impact on the environment. In personal care products, a lot of plastic and disposable products are used and there is actually little choice for the user in sustainable alternatives. 

Bambooo Beauty offers us a sustainable everyday option and a pleasant experience at the same time!

3-layer reusable cotton pads

With the 3-layer reusable soft cotton pads from Bambooo Beauty, cleaning your face becomes a party every day! Enjoy the soft bamboo cotton pads, while you contribute to a better planet. 

Includes a laundry bag to keep them together in the washing machine! With 20 cotton pads, you have enough to last until your next wash.

Why reusable cotton pads?

We use about 1000 cotton pads a year. They are made of cotton, a plant species that need up to 20,000 liters of water per kilo! These all end up in the trash. 

We think that's a shame! And that's not even taken into consideration the transport of raw materials or packaging materials. 

The bamboo cotton pads are transported once and can be used up to 1000 times! The cotton pads have 3 layers, making it possible to use the front and back for different purposes.

Why bamboo?

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, some species grow up to 1 meter a day! Bamboo absorbs the most CO2 of all plants and reduces the greenhouse effect most effectively. 

Bamboo is also the most effective way to purify wastewater from heavy metals from the ground.

How long will they last?

You can wash the cotton pads by hand after use or wash them in the washing bag with the regular wash for thorough cleaning. 

By rinsing them in between, make-up residues will not absorb as quickly and you can use the pads several times before they have to be washed. 

After purchase, you will also receive an e-book with detailed washing instructions! Because the cotton wool is 3-layered, you can use both front and back for different purposes, such as cleaning the eyes and then the rest of your face.

The reusable cotton pads can last up to 1000 washes. If you put one pad a day in the wash, this is equivalent to over 40 years of enjoyment!

My opinion on the reusable cotton pads

I love the wooden container, and the type of wood is a perfect fit for our bathroom shelves. Because of the handy laundry bag, you can easily put them in the washing machine together with your other laundry. 😎

They are also nice and soft on my face, so I can also use them on the delicate under-eye skin. They are about the same size as the throwaway pads I used to use. 😊

Whether or not you are a spring chicken like me, having a good skincare routine is very important. I mostly use the white ones to clean my face, and the black ones to apply my face serum. One thing is certain. No more throwaway cotton pads for me. 😊

If you are interested in buying those reusable cotton pads, I've got great news for you.

Interview with Fashion Designer Amber Orah

Hi There..... Oh my, have you seen the time? 

High time for a new deep dive into the fashion industry with a fashion designer interview. Haha, sorry for puzzling you with that weird question. I wish I could have seen your faces. Send me a selfie of that look, will you? πŸ˜‚

Then again, you had better not. You might get Selfitis, and I wouldn't want to be held responsible for making you addicted to selfies. 😨

Can you believe we are almost in May again? Time for Festivals, and that's exactly why I wanted to share this new view behind the screens of the fashion industry with you. 😊

The fashion designer on my blog today created a very special garment that's perfect to wear to a Festival, but it will become clear if you see the pictures of her designs. 😎

So let me tell you about the 29-year-old Amber Orah, Creative Director for ÚCHÈ by Amber 😍

What made you decide to become a Fashion Designer?

Fashion is important to me because I see fashion as a very important form of expression…. it is a medium that has the power to elevate the way one feels about themselves.

Is fashion important to you? Why? 

Yes, fashion is very important to me. My love for expression and wearable art brought me to the world of Fashion Design.

What are your successes, and how did you achieve them?

Personally, I don’t think success can be quantified. I have been successful in many aspects of my life, and the more opportunities I get the more successful I feel. Regarding being a Fashion Designer, I could say 1 of the many successes would be to stay true to myself in this industry and go with my instincts as I have always done.

Is the name of the Brand important to you when you buy clothing?

Brand names are not important to me when I buy clothes, in the sense that I will not buy a piece solely because of the brand name. I connect more with the design and what the designer is trying to communicate through that.

Describe your personal style of clothing?

My style is all over the place, to be honest, the one constant thing that seems to be however is edgy. But my style is ever-changing, I explore a lot.

How did you find your personal style? Do you have a signature look? 

I guess I can say my personal style is “no style” and I found it by just being and dressing how I feel. And I have signature looks depending on the style phases I am in. I am currently going through a rockstar phase for your information…. so you’ll always see me with a leather jacket.

Do you have an influence on other people’s clothing style?

I like to think I do. I sometimes work as a fashion consultant for my close friends in the fashion/ entertainment industry and their trust in my style ideas for them makes me believe I do.

What are in your eyes the best trends at the moment?

My favorite current trends would be Upcycled fashion, vintage style, and innovative fashion designs.

What are in your eyes the worst trends at the moment?

I don’t think there’s any “worse trends” category for me, there might be some trends that don’t appeal to me or that I don’t understand…..but then again, not everything is for everyone.

What kind of fashion advice would you give us?

Never be afraid to explore, give your imagination room to create. There are no rules, and you can pull off whatever as long as you feel good in it! 

Who is your style icon and why?

Honestly, I have a couple…. Rihanna (for just being Rihanna) Bella Hadid (for her ability to go from preppy to sophisticated with her style) Kendall Jenner (for her ability to make minimal look so freaking great) Lil Nas X (for not giving an F)…. there are a lot more though. But let’s stick to these.

Is there something else you would like to share with us?

No, I think we are good. Thank you so much.
