The Lipstick League – week of 8.8.16
Question of the Week: Do you use cotton pads at any point in your skincare routine? If yes, do you have a favorite brand or type?
EauMG’s Answer: Long ago when I was a broke college student that worked as a shop girl, I used to laugh at the women that came in and bought expensive cotton pads from Shiseido or Clé de Peau. Didn’t they know they could pick those up at the drugstore for cheaper? But, I was young and naive. For the past 8 years, I’ve been using the Shiseido Facial Cottons or I sub them for equally as nice cotton pads that I find at Korean or Japanese skincare stores. When I’m “slumming” it, I buy the cottons from Muji. You may be like Young Me and laugh. But, I promise you that these more expensive cottons don’t waste as much product and feel so good on the skin/eyes. You’ll use them and never go back.
