Skin type: Oily-sensitive, acne prone.
Hope all of you are doing great! I am here to share another product(s) with you all which was a sudden discovery from our local pharmacy store. We all stock cotton rounds, cosmetic wedges and we cannot deny their essential role in our skincare, makeup regimen. I can never get enough of cosmetic wedges, especially for travel purpose, considering they come so handy and mess free. Moreover, recently, I saw Wayne’s video on tearing makeup sponge into two halves and simply dabbing foundation with stippling motion using that rough surface on skin, the results were amazing. Needless to say, I can’t afford to tear apart my beauty blender or other expensive sponges so, I indulged in a cheaper alternative. So, all of a sudden, the need for cosmetic wedges increased overnight as I tore down all my wedges into halves! By the way, it does give a nice finish, though, I would do it for a special event, not always. And, I have been using (quite happy) Sephora brand cotton rounds but, they seem to be a bit pricey hence, thought of moving to a cheaper alternative for a change. So, let’s read more about Swisspers Latex-Free Professional Cosmetic Wedges and 100% Cotton Rounds!
Price: $2-$4 for 100 count cotton rounds, $4-$6 for 16 count latex-free cosmetic wedges.
Swisspers Cosmetic Wedges help you to take off your makeup at the end of the day. They’re latex-free so even people with skin allergies can use them. This 16-count bag of makeup wedges is reusable for added value.
Swisspers 100% Cotton Rounds are ideal for a variety of uses. They are soft and absorbent, making them perfect for all your cosmetic needs. The lint-free cosmetic rounds are perfect for removing dirt and makeup while leaving even sensitive skin feeling fresh and clean.
My Experience with Swisspers Latex-Free Professional Cosmetic Wedges and 100% Cotton Rounds:
The cosmetic wedges come in an ordinary plastic packaging like any normal cosmetic wedge; I liked the resealable pouch, though. It comes handy to keep them dirt free inside the resealable pouch. The cotton rounds also come handy inside a sleek long plastic packaging with a resealable lock.
Talking about the wedges first, they are quite soft and fluffy. I find them pretty good in applying liquid products as they do work as per their claims, they don’t drink up my foundation, unlike usual sponges. I usually soak them in water prior to using on the skin as I noticed that damp sponges and light hand spray of water or rosewater on skin give the best dewy finish. Plus, they are triangular in shape which gives even tone finish in every nook and corner of my face including cupid bow, undereye area, corners of the nose as well. In fact, they give a smooth, saturated finish with every foundation I have used so far, I also see my friends using these wedges for applying powders and concealers which look quite flawless, at times.
I can see that I need not invest hours for blending and/or applying makeup whenever I use these wedges, thankfully. I just dab, dab and that’s it; they simply set makeup in place without accentuating or aggravating my problematic skin type. And, I haven’t experienced any side effects of using these wedges on my skin which explain they are safe enough for sensitive skin type. Not to forget, they are so soft and pliable, I have torn them into pieces with hands to recreate Wayne’s makeup look and they did give me a smooth flawless finish. We can reuse them as they are washable but, I would prefer grabbing a new one. I would like to get it again, considering they work well for my skin type.
Coming over to the cotton rounds, I find them pretty sturdy and perfect for everyday usage apart from skincare and makeup. I have been using Sephora brand cotton rounds before and surprisingly, I didn’t find any significant difference in the quality. These cotton rounds are quite non-abrasive and non-itchy for my acne prone skin; I use them for dabbing BHA liquids and toner on my skin and I have never felt any irritation, so far. I can see that they have great absorbent property apart from durability.
I can use them for nail polish removers, for removing off heavy makeup, applying toners/serums on skin what not! Even, I often soak them in rosewater and use as soothing eye pads and they just stay in place with their soft yet thick quality material. So far, I find them perfect and comparable to many significant brands like Sephora.
