Last Object, the makers of Last Swab (review here), and Last Tissue (review to come) , have released their latest product to cut down on single use products - Last Round.
What is Last Round?
Last Round is designed to be a reusable cotton round. Many use multiple cotton rounds a day to remove makeup, apply toners or other products, or even remove nail polish. Rather than throw away countless cotton rounds, why not start with something more durable and reuse it again and again?
What is included in Last Round?
Each case contains 7 reusable rounds. Save 41% if you snag the Kickstarter Early Bird Kit including 3 sets!

How Do I Use Last Round?
1. Take a round out of the top.
2. Depending on your use, you may wet it with water or something else (toner? etc)
3. Use it like you would any cotton round
4. Hand wash with soap and water
5. Squeeze excess water and let it dry outside the case
6. Pop it back in at the bottom!
How is Last Round Sustainable and better than regular cotton rounds?
Most regular cotton rounds are wasteful because they are used once and disposed of. But beyond that, they are generally made with non-organic cotton. That means chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, and bleach. And then you wipe your face with them. Blech.
On the other hand, Last Round is made with 30% cotton and 70% Scandinavian wood fibers (FSC certified). These are fully compostable and the cotton fibers which are too short for the textile industry would otherwise be textile waste! Score!
Last Rounds are also said to feel more like single use rounds due to their materials and texture in comparison to other reusables that are generally made from cloth.
Okay so how long does Last Round last?
Each package is said to be good for 1,000 uses.
Are Last Rounds machine washable?
You are hand washing them after each use, but you can also machine wash them in a mesh bag. It's recommended to wash up to 140 F (60 C) and not to tumble dry. Hand wash the case.
What is the Last Rounds Case made of?
Good question! It's made of BPA free corn-based plastic. Yes, that's right. Plant based plastic. The same material as the cases for Last Tissue.
Where are Last Rounds made?
Last Rounds are made in Denmark in an environmentally friendly factory which uses a closed system, recycling all water used in the fabrication of the rounds!
Can Last Rounds be used to remove nail polish?
Yes! but there are some things to consider. 1. It will definitely reduce the life of the Last Rounds. 2. You have to clean it really thoroughly because if you don't get all the nail polish out, it will dry and make it crunchy. (I have experienced this with some junky rounds I bought at dollar tree years ago that I have been using as nail polish removing pads until they are no longer usable. Different material, but same principle) 3. Once you use it for nail polish remover, you kind of have to stick with that as the way you use it. You don't want to use it to take off nail polish one day and the next wipe your face, amiright?
