A few months back I met a women at a beauty event. While chit chatting she mentioned about her daughter-in-law. I was completely shocked because the lady didn’t look a day older than 35. She told that she was 49 years old and would be 50 in a month. 😐 I just had to take some beauty tips from her. She said her biggest beauty secret was using cosmetic cotton pads. She mentioned that
we spend thousands of rupees on buying the best of skin care products but still use the regular cotton. The regular cotton rolls are not meant for your face. They were made for hospitals and for sanitary purposes. Every single day you use “khurdura” cotton on your face and underneath your eyes. Unintentionally you are slightly scratching your skin every singly day – twice a day. The cosmetic cotton pads are gentle. They are especially made for facial skin. NEVER use the regular cotton. She said that was the best anti ageing tip she could offer to me.
Right after the event, I went straight to The Body Shop and bought a pack of their organic cotton rounds. I have to say that these are one of the best cotton pads I have used so far.
Price : Rs 255 for 100 cotton pads.
- They are very gentle on the skin. And especially great for the delicate under eye area.
- They don’t leave the fluff behind.
- These are available in both rounds and squares.
- One side is soft and the other side is textured. the softer side can be used especially for the under eye area and the textured side can be used for the facil skin or nail polish removal.
- They are organic.
- They make great eye pads too. I dip them in ice cold water sometimes and place them on my eyes.
Overall I am very happy with these cotton pads. Instantly I could feel the difference between using the regular cotton and these cotton rounds. I’d suggest all of you to invest in good quality cosmetic cotton pads. It may not necessarily be the TBS ones but any good quality ones would do. Earlier I used to be lazy buying cotton pads but not any more. I am not going back to the khurdura cotton for my face ever. 😀
