Love Island girls throw away an astonishing amount of makeup wipes in the villa

This year’s Love Island beauties have loved getting glam for the cameras with all of them sporting full faces of makeup most of the time they’re on air.

In order to cut through their concealer and banish all that bronzer, it’s no surprise the girls have been reaching for copious amounts of makeup wipes. In a report published by Wethrift, skincare expert Nick Drewe revealed that almost 1000 dirty face wipes have been discarded from the main villa and Casa Amor since the start of the series.

It’s estimated that original Islanders Faye Winter, Liberty Poole, and Kaz Kamwi have gone through a total of 384 wipes between them since they entered the villa. Chloe Burrows – who joined the lineup not long after the show started – adds another 128 to that total, taking it to 512.

Combine those big hitters with all the other girls who have come into the villa and been there for varying amounts of time and the total shoots up to 844.

Wethrift’s research suggests that Millie Court – who recently ended things with partner Liam Reardon – has used 96 wipes since entering the villa with Lucinda Strafford.

It’s estimated that Lucinda used 76 makeup wipes during her time in the villa before she left with Aaron Francis. Despite the pair leaving together, Lucinda announced on Love Island After Sun that she and former flame Brad McClelland are in the ‘early stages of romance’.

And let’s not forget the Casa Amor girls. Amy Day, Clarisse Juliette, Kaila Troy, Lillie Haynes, Mary Bedford and Salma Naran reportedly used 72 makeup wipes between them during their first five days in the villa. That takes the grand total to 916 wipes, just shy of 1000.

So, it’s fair to say that this year’s Love Island ladies have accumulated quite the heap of waste during their time on the show.

However, it appears that the contestants have been using Simple Skincare makeup remover wipes as part of their nightly routines. This particular brand of face wipes will biodegrade in 42 days.

Nick Drewe says, “The environment is not a big fan of cleansing wipes, since most makeup wipes aren't recyclable or compostable.

“Whilst a normal wet wipe will take around 100 days to decompose, fortunately, Love Island producers have opted for a much more environmentally friendly product.”

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
