I wanted to talk about these cotton balls that I am using for quite some time now. Also, I wanted to take a break from the sheet masks I was reviewing, people started thinking I use sheet masks on a daily basis! So, giving you a breather, reviewing these awesome cotton balls you must get. Its the Bella round cotton balls. I use cotton for removing nail polishes, for applying clarifying and cleansing lotions, to remove cream and gel masks, remove makeup, etc. Let’s find out how different they are from normal cotton balls available in the market.
Fluffy cotton balls, extra soft and absorbent, perfect make-up remover and nail cleaner. Balls in each package are present in 4 different colors: white, pink, blue and yellow. Produced from allergy safe dyes. Convenient cord pack can be kept safely in the bathroom.
Rs. 99 for a packet of 100 cotton balls.
My Take on Bella Cotton Balls:
Until I found Bella cotton balls, I was using cotton balls from a local brand called “Kiwi.” Kiwi cotton balls were not great, they were not that soft and would not absorb products that well. With those cotton balls, I would waste a lot of nail polish remover and it was a huge task to completely remove the paint. However, since I have started using Bella cotton balls, I have known the difference.
Bella cotton balls come in four different colours in a lightweight plastic bag with thin cords at the top, which you can pull together to close the plastic bag so that cotton balls remain sterilized after the bag is opened.
So, there is no need to transfer them to zip lock or another packaging. There are 100 pieces of cotton balls in a bag. The best thing about these cotton rounds are that these are super fluffy, soft, and absorb products nicely.
They are coloured with allergy safe dyes and they have never irritated or caused any reaction on my skin. Cleansing is such an ease with these rounds. Removing nail polish is also quite easy since the remover spreads easily and evenly on to the fluffy cotton. These rounds are airy and soak in the product nicely. In some cotton rounds, the product does not get distributed evenly throughout the cotton and remain concentrated in an area, but with Bella cotton rounds, the rounds get soaked up nicely.
Also, one round is enough for the entire face. I soak them up in rose water and keep them on the eyes for relaxing. I also have a backup for Bella cottons, right now I have got two packs ready, I do not want to ever run out of them. Trust me, they are so good.

Pros of Bella Cotton Balls:
- Good quality soft, fluffy cotton balls, mild on skin.
- Airy cotton balls of good quality.
- Can be used to remove makeup, for the CTM routine, remove face packs, etc.
- Have not irritated my skin.
- Soak up products nicely and evenly throughout the ball.
- Cords at the top of the packet which can be pulled to close the packet, which keep the cotton balls free from dirt once you open the packet.
- Reasonably priced.
Cons of Bella Cotton Balls:
- Even though they specify that the dye used to colour the cotton balls are allergy safe, I do not like coloured ones.
