Crocheted Cotton Pads

I cannot remember how often I have stood in my bathroom in the evening ready to remove my make-up just to find that I … AGAIN… had forgotten to buy more cotton pads!? I write this in past tense, because I have replaced them with my own crocheted ones – YAY!! I came across a yarn blend of 50% linen, 36% cotton & 14% natural silk. The brand is Rosariós4 and the name of the yarn is Príncipe Real. Not only are they prettier, but also with the linen in the blend, I feel that I get a light exfoliation, which I love. Please bare in mind that I am not a dermatologist – this is only my personal opinion. If you too wish to replace your cotton pads with your own OR maybe you are in need of a quick gift, you can find the instructions below.
