WAHM Review: Cute & Funky

I remember learning the 3 R's in grade school: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!  And it didn't mean much to me then.  But things are different now.  I'm married.  I own my own home.  And I have a beautiful baby girl.

All of those things have made me reevaluate our spending, what goes in/on our bodies, and our impact on the environment.  Because of that, we have slowly started replacing some of our disposable items in an effort to save money, take control of our health, and keep a little less trash out of the landfills.

When I was looking for cloth wipes on Etsy, I stumbled across Cute & Funky.

Free products were exchanged for an open & honest review.  All opinions are my own.
And it was at this super cute little store that I discovered reusable facial rounds - an idea so simple, I can't believe I didn't think of it myself!  ;)  But I'm glad that someone did!  

Brandie is a wonderful mommy who works from home so that she can be with her "little diva."  She has been in business since 2012 and has over 1,100 sales!!  From what I can tell she has a pretty positive reputation and my dealings with her have been wonderfully pleasant.  

Her shop includes lots of great reusable items!

And the item of the hour:

I use cotton rounds every day to take off make-up and apply toner.  I love that there is a reusable option!  Cute & Funky carries quite a few different options and Brandie sent me some of each to review.

Simple and practical.
I suppose if I was building my ideal stash - these would be it.  They do the job and they are simply white.  That means if they are out on the counter, like mine are, they still have an "adult" feel.  I did notice that my toner stained them just a teensy bit.  

You know how much I love organic!
Because bamboo is so absorbent, I wasn't a huge fan of these for removing make-up or applying toner.  The dampness didn't seem to last as long as I needed it to.  But I have a feeling these would be fantastic for applying cleanser and I plan to give that a try soon!  These also have that "adult" feel while being wonderfully organic!  They also seem sturdier than the cotton flannel.

Here is a comparison of the two...
A fun alternative!
These work just as nicely as the plain white ones!  But they are much more fun!  ;)  As nice as having an "adult" feel might be.  I like to jazz things up now and then.  This will be a pleasant little surprise on the bathroom counter.

My very favorite!
The minky rounds are especially nice for delicate and sensitive skin since the minky is extra soft!  Plus, they are just so "cute & funky."  ;)  I absolutely loved the feel of the minky against my skin and giggled a bit when I saw the stars in the mirror.  

Overall, Cute & Funky is an adorable store.  Her prices aren't horrible, her products are high-quality, and Brandi is a pleasure to work with!

She has even decided to offer you all an exclusive discount code!  Use bloglove10 at checkout for 10% off.

  1. I'll have to check her shop out... I could def use the reusable facial rounds. Guess I could make my own... but it might be a few months till I get time to sew again. Thanks for sharing! I have some Christmas $ that needs used! -Devon

    1. I usually have my Christmas money used up by the 1st! haha. But it is a cute little shop. I have a couple more pretty neat ones coming up in the next couple of weeks as well!
