Pai Exfoliating Muslin Cloths, £12

These muslin cloths from Pai are a great alternative to a makeup remover if you want a slight exfoliant too. They won’t scrub your face raw, but it’s a gentle way to scrub without using microbeads (which are banned) or single-use peel pads which will actually damage your rather than exfoliate it.

Also it’s the size of about three classic cotton rounds, so you can get your whole face done with one. After they are dirtied up, you can just throw these in the wash with the towels.
