• Beauty • Cherubs Eco Range Review • Makeup Wipes, Cotton Rounds & Cotton Buds

Hiya everyone 

I was very generously sent the new Cherubs Makeup Remover Wipes to review after completing a survey on Beauty Bulletin, intrigued by a new offering in the category.

I was also kindly sent a couple of extra packs of wipes, plus their cotton rounds and cotton buds.

The Eco-Facial Wipes come either in a pack of 24 or a pack of 60. There are also three variants: normal (blue), oily / combination (pink) and sensitive / dry (purple). Whilst the 24 pack comes with a stickable seal (perfect to take it around with you), I do like that the 60 pack comes with the stickable seal and a lid despite it being bulkier.

All of the wipes are lightly fragranced, they are gentle on the skin, are pH balanced, alcohol and paraben free and, best of all, are biodegradable!

The variant for normal skin contains rooibos & papaya extract rich in powerful anti-oxidants, keeping skin hydrated. The one for oily / combo skin contains lemon, ivy & sage extract to reduce oiliness, hydrate skin, and prevent localized drying in combination skin whereas the sensitive / dry variant contains sea fennel & chamomile extract to soothe skin, keeping it moisturised and hydrated.

I can vouch for all of their claims, my only gripe with the wipes? They are sadly ineffective at removing makeup, I have to rub and rub and use at least three to get some sort of result  That's kinda the whole point of the wipes, so not worth the buy in my opinion. They also are not very moist and are not very durable, they stretch and tear quite easily. However, the thing that this experience has taught me, Cherubs is an awesome brand and I so appreciate that they produce biodegradable products! 



Now, one thing you may not know about me, I have baby wipes and anti-bacterial wipes with me almost everywhere. I have them in my makeup room, in my car, in my desk drawer, in my gym bag, in my airplane cosmetics bag and in my handbag. I am so impressed with the Cherubs brand that I am now going to replace all of my current baby wipes with Cherubs!

Despite this review being based around the makeup wipes, the real stars for me are the cotton rounds and cotton buds! I did not know that cotton rounds weren't biodegradable (I am ashamed, no need for hate please)?! I have been flushing cotton rounds (not buds though) for years! So, I am also now switching to both the Cherubs cotton rounds and buds. Added bonus? The cotton rounds are super soft and effective for both removing makeup or nail polish.

The 60 pack comes with a stickable seal and lid

I am so proud of this South African brand and will definitely be using the brand going forward as well as recommending them to all my friends! It's unfortunate that I don't find the makeup removal wipes very effective (and I've used enough brands in the past to be able to compare) but this experience has introduced me to a brand that I never would have tried before, until maybe when I have a child in the future.

  1. Still great to use in a makeup kit as a makeup artist - can clean your hands, help to clean up products or brushes.
    I also keep wipes like these to wipe down my makeup counter and to wipe swatches off my hands/arms/where ever!
    And in a pinch, when I've had no cotton rounds, I add some micellar water to the wipes and it just helps the makeup removal aspect. Wipes are softer than cotton rounds and bigger! ;)

    1. I agree, just no point in going with the makeup removal ones if baby wipes are cheaper, more moist and better quality!

  2. It's a pity that the wipes don't remove makeup well :( I was so excited when I started reading all the good points and love that the wipes are biodegradable. That being said, I use a LOT of cotton rounds and Cherubs' option just sound so much better and I am definitely going to make the switch too!

    1. Thanks for reading, Maris! I was disappointed too. I am going to buy their baby wipes for everyday use and then I am 100% converting to their cotton rounds and buds!!

  3. Just shows you how different everyone finds products, I personally really enjoyed the makeup wipes.

    1. True story! Just as a matter of interest, how many did you have to use before all of your makeup is removed? I like that my Nivea Micellar Water wipes are moist, gentle and I only have to use one to remove my makeup.
