I didn't want to buy into the hype but this product is superior to anything at the drugstore. This is a product that I'll never be without.
I tried getting the drug store dupe of this product - it did not compare. These originals are far more luxurious and you can feel the difference on your face and in your hands.
- So soft and luxurious. I have been using these for years (ever since they came out) and they are the only things I use to help take my makeup off.
-Price keeps going up for these! I remember when they first came out and I started buying them, they were ~20% cheaper than they currently are.
Verdict: highly recommend. They are a staple in my skincare routine and I always stock up on these.
SO SOFT. I loved it. This is probably one of the best quality cotton pads in the world, if not the best. They are soft, firm, strong, fluffy, and just wonderful. For the quality it really is worth every penny. After I ran out, I was sad to feel the scratchy target brand cotton pads on my face again. Other standard US cotton pads feel like sandpaper in comparison. Since I'm a broke college student, I can't really afford these every month though.
They're soft and big. But they're also not bound on any side and can fall apart if you're rough with them. They roll up into a facial cotton hot dog if I push them around instead of sweeping them in one direction only on my face. I enjoy the pretty plastic bag packaging with the cute cotton illustration on the front. The back has directions- you're supposed to wrap the pad around your middle finger and then sweep it over your face. They even have an illustration with directions in which to sweep the pad on your face! These are a nice luxury item to treat yourself to. Just make sure that you're going to be slow and gentle and not wipe this cotton pad around around your face quickly in different directions like an animal. Like I do.
It seems expensive on the surface, but when i can use one pad for removing makeup from both of my eyes without irritation, it becomes more economical. I also like to use this for toner. One pad covers both my face and chest area (which I treat like my face). I've bought them over and over again and restock my stash when Sephora has sales.
Another thumbs up for the Shiseido Facial Cotton. I first tried this when I needed another product purchase to get a free gift - basically it was the cheapest thing in their line. Wow. It's so nice and soft and doesn't disintegrate and doesn't leave lint behind. Just a wonderful product. Sure, it's expensive for cotton wool, but it's cheaper and softer-feeling than DHC's silky cotton pads. It's not something I always have on hand, given the price, but I do repurchase periodically when I want to pamper myself.
This is the best facial cotton pad imaginable! The cotton rectangles are large and useful for applying and removing products. I have purchased it for several years and will continue to do so.
Like gliding a silky smooth rose petal over your eyes and face. No scratching, no inconsistency, no fuzz...just expensive, gorgeous, worth every penny cotton pads.
Amazingly soft and luxurious, and one pad is enough to remove makeup from both eyes. I also didn't get those little lint bits that you can get with the cheaper brands. Love!
Hope this helps! :)
I love these and think they are totally worth it. I've had my package for over two years, and I'm not even half way finished (seriously). Granted I cut them in half horizontally to get more bang for my buck, and I only use them about 1 or 2 times a week. Overall I think these are great: uber soft and no annoying fluffy cotton bits from cheaply made cotton balls getting all over my face. For $11 I think these are a better value than generic brands, because the package lasts 10x as long. Highly recommend :)
