I recently bought these because the cheap cotton balls I was using were leaving lint all over my face. I really like these!!! And will definatly repurchase when I run out. I know that they are a little expensive, $8.00 a pack, but I feel like they are worth it. They are better for taking off my eye makeup and applying my toner. I will now use my cheap ones for removing my nail polish only.
I am so glad I took the advice of you all and bought this product. First, it's awesome..and second, it's awesome! Treat your eyes to a nice alternative from kleenex and cotton balls--you will not be dissappointed!
LOVE IT! After reading all the great reviews for it, I just had to buy it and I'm so glad I did. I use the Lancome Fatale mascara which is a pain to remove but this makes a huge difference. It's so so soft and doesn't shed at all. I got it for 6.75 at the Military Base
This cotton is so soft. It definitely feels a lot better on my skin than anything else I've ever used. Perfect for softner lotion or makeup remover.
I received a sample of this when I purchased a sunscreen the other day, and today I could not thank the salesperson enough when I returned to purchase the cotton. It is silky smooth, unlike any other cotton I've ever used on my skin. As others have noted, less product goes further with these which makes the cost (US$8.00 for 150 cotton pads) less upsetting. The salesperson actually claimed the cotton does not absorb the product and it is specially designed to be lint-free. I don't know if this is true, but I am pleased to report that this is the first facial cotton of any sort that has not resulted in cotton specs on my skin, which is particularly impressive for men who use cotton to apply tonics over shaved areas of the face. This will most certainly be a staple to my future skincare. As others have suggested, the packaging (a sealed, tinted bag that does not reseal) could benefit from a redesign to make it sealable, but that is the only critique and does not affect the overall outstanding quality of this product. Highly recommended.
Before buying this i thought "what can this cotton do that other cotton can't?" i bought it anyway after all i desperately needed cotton anyway... so well THERE is a difference!!! this is VERY soft, VERY gentle for the eye area, well overall superior, in one word "GENTLE", other cottons (meaning the generic cotton we usually get from the beauty section of the supermarket) usually left me with red skin from all the tugging, not this one... well after a few days i went back i bought 7, yes 7 packages to take home with me (although we do have shiseido in mexico, they don't sell this cotton) and six months later i am left with three and a half packages so i am pretty sure the 7 will last me a year, i use them for everything, and they have been worth every single penny and space in my suitcase. Status: HG.
Wonderful product-This may be the first time in my life I've been able to easily get my eye makeup off without my under eye area feeling abused. Absolute HG for me. Edit- I still love it but DHC's product is almost half the price (but I can't run into Nordstrom's to get DHC).
I know these cotton pads are a real favorite to many MUAers but not me. I bought them with high expectations and was greatly dissappointed. They seemed very standard to me. Also, they shed lint and were not particularly absorbant. Shiseido facial cotton is ok, but way overpriced and I will be buying my regular old cotton pads from Big Lots when I'm through with this package of Shiseido.
I bought these because other reviews said that this didnt shed and get in your eyelashes. However, I tried removing my eye makeup, and got those fuzzy cotton strands all in my eyelashes. Darn! I ordered them from Neobeauty. Can anyone tell me if this is unusual, or what?
I got this as a GWP with my shiseido purchase. THESE ARE AMAZING!!!!! They are so soft. I used one for my toner, it really does feel different from when I use cotton balls!!! These are great...will purchase next time I see a Shiseido counter!!
