The Flamingo Twin Pouch and Bamboo Cosmetic Pad set
The outside fabric of this lovely twin pouch is 100% cotton and features my favourite Flamingoes.
The inside is lined with a Ripstop-type fabric so it is wipeable and there is a zippered top to keep it neatly closed. (Because of course you don’t have to use it for make up remover pads. It makes a pretty neat clutch all by itself). Oh and check out the Tibetan Silver Flamingo zipper charm!
It measures approximately 9 inches (20cms) wide by 5 inches (13cms) high
But it’s the Bamboo Cleansing Pads that excite me the most about this one! Measuring approximately 4.5 inches (11.5 cms) square, they are triple layered (2 layers of bamboo towelling and 1 layer of 100% cotton to match the twin pouch. They are double stitched around the edges for extra durability. They are also square in shape, not round as some others are, to minimise wastage of materials. And did I mention you can use them over and over?
I will admit I was somewhat sceptical about these – until I tried them! The bamboo towelling (which was washed before use) is super soft while at the same time gently exfoliating the skin. You can use them for applying facial cleanser, skin toner or even as a mini-flannel with soap and water. I tested one by removing my makeup with Micellar Water and when I looked at the pad I thought “That’s never going to come clean” – but it did! The pads can be rinsed out under the tap with a little soap, rinsed again and left to air dry or you can simply toss them in the washing machine with your regular laundry. They come up soft and lovely every time.
Of course you don’t have to use it to carry the pads, it makes a great little pouch to hold your phone, cards or ‘folding money’.
The unique construction of this twin pouch means that when the plastic snaps are opened, it lies flat making it not only ideal to post but easy to pack in your suitcase.
An unusual and exciting gift for Mother’s Day – or any day!
