If you usually wash your face at the bathroom sink, then you’re all too familiar with the feeling of water running down your arms. It’s such a small thing but it really is annoying, especially if you’re wearing clothing with sleeves as these tend to get a bit damp.

To prevent the trickling of water down the arms from occurring, TikTok users have taken to popping scrunchies around their wrists to soak up the water and we have to say, this is a pretty clever use for the hair ties. What’s even more genius is the creation of the Cleansing Bands ($20) by Vela Days Skincare for this very reason.

These white, fluffy microfibre bands prevent water from dripping down your arms while you’re washing your face at the basin, but they also have a few other uses too. You can also use the Cleansing Bands to remove makeup, simply dampen and wipe over your face to take away oil, dirt and makeup from the day.

If you’re in need of a scrunchie to keep your hair out of your face while doing your skincare routine, you can also use a Cleansing Band as a hair tie — we love a multipurpose moment! The Cleansing Bands are also reusable and machine washable, so you can use them again and again.

We love the simple idea of these Bands and how effective they are in soaking up water. The Cleansing Bands are elasticised and one size fits all — simply pop them on the part of your wrist where they feel most snug, to ensure any water won’t sneak through while you’re cleansing your face.

If you’re using the Bands just as water catchers, pop these in the wash once a week, but if you’re also using them to remove makeup, it’s recommended that you wash them after each use and pop them in a washing bag before putting them into the washing machine. Let them air dry and you’re good to go again.

There you have it! You’ll never deal with water trickling down your arms again. The dream.
