Face Halo | MagpieMagpie Skincare


Face Halo “cloth” is a game changer! You might remember from my new years resolutions I was keen to cut down on waste and be better for the environment.

My first port of call was cotton wool! I changed to the boots organic range which I was happy with but felt I was using so much of it!

Enter Annie with her fantastic skincare finds!

Annie, is a friend from my old job, who was very kind and got me a few ‘sorry your leaving’ gifts and in this delightful collection were the Face Halo. They were something I’d never heard of, but literally the perfect gift, thanks Annie!

Basically you add water and it wipes off all your makeup! Sounds too good to be true right… I thought to myself, they must be full of chemicals, I’ll have to replace them all the time, they won’t do what they say they can. Well how wrong I was!

They are great! You can use them with warm or cold water, but for me using cold water just didn’t feel right. So warm water it was. I just wiped it over my face like a cotton pad and watch the magic happen. They are so impressive. The best part is you are not using unnecessary chemicals of your skin AND after use you just pop them in the washing machine (with light colours… unfortunately one of mine is now grey 🙁 ) ready to reuse again and again.

Here’s a little blurb from their website that explains how they work :

Face Halo works with either cold or warm water. The water loosens your makeup allowing the HaloTech fiber strands (which are 100 times finer than a human hair) to reach deep into your pores to remove and trap makeup, giving your skin a healthy and invigorating clean in half the time. Check out how using only water with the Halotech fibers compares to other removal methods at The Halo Effect

It’s just clever. And so easy.


You don’t need to rub or scrub. Simply wet your Face Halo and gently wipe off makeup. You’ll be surprised how much makeup comes off on your Face Halo. This is because the HaloTech fibers hold onto it and ensure nothing goes back onto your face. We like using the clean side of the Face Halo to check all your makeup is off. And for heavier eye makeup, we suggest you rehydrate your Face Halo well (with water) and hold it on the eyes or eyelashes and chant Halo, Halo, Halo 6 times, then remove.

It just helps. (And promotes peace on earth 🙂

Throw Face Halo in with your white/light color wash and another miracle will occur. Angelic Face Halo reappears – fresh and ready to use again and again. It can be washed around 200 times! For some stubborn makeup residue you might want to handwash your Face Halo with soap and warm water first then throw into the washing machine. Important: Please don’t use Fabric Softener when washing as it will leave a coating that will reduce the effectiveness of the HaloTech fibers. More at Face Halo Care.

So Fresh. Still plush!



They are also amazing for traveling. I had a lot of traveling back and forth to the UK for training with only a carry on luggage and these little beauties were a lifesaver! I had extra space for other toiletries and didn’t have to worry about spillages. If for nothing else I HIGHLY recommend them for traveling!

They come in a pack of three, which  for the average person should be perfect but for someone like me, who wears a lot of makeup, six would be ideal. Annie ordered mine from their website and she was happy with the shopping experience, I’ll keep you updated on my own experience ordering from this site! I still use cotton wool for doing nails, but since using the Face Halo’s I’ve saved mula and feel better about the fact I’m not wasting as much.

Have you tried Face Halo’s? Do you think you’ll be replacing your traditional cotton wool and cleanser or face wipes? Let me know in the comments below.

Till next week,
