Love Islanders Were Banned From Taking A Very Specific Beauty Product Into The Villa This Year

For very good reason.

If you’re an avid Love Island fan you’ll know that there’s more to the show than recoupling.

From Molly Mae’s iconic bun to Dani Dyer’s eyelash blow-dries, the villa teaches us as many beauty lessons as it does love.

We’re only just beginning this series and already we’ve uncovered the £2 lip liner Gemma Owen loves, along with the one make-up trend the entire villa can’t get enough of.

While it might seem the contestants are free to do whatever they like when it comes to their beauty and make-up routines, believe it or not there are some rules they have to follow.

Previous contestant Chloe Burrows revealed that fake tan is at the top of that list because producers don’t want to film a load of stained bedsheets.

Fair enough.

But as well as their St Tropez collections, there is one skincare item in particular contestants are not allowed to use in the villa and it’s actually for good reason.

Boots is the official partner for the series and provides all the beauty products the contestants could ever dream of. One product they won’t provide? Make-up wipes.

As of 2020, make-up removal wipes were officially banned from production as Islanders were encouraged to use more sustainable, reusable options instead.

Unlike the fake tan, this is one rule we can get behind as not only do make-up wipes take longer to remove your make-up but it’s also more cost effective to use a micro fibre cloth that can be reused.

Could this be the first time David Attenborough gives his approval to the series?
