Favorite cotton balls?

What's your favorite kind of cotton ball to use?  For decades I've used ones from CVS (first under the CVS name then under the Beauty 360 name...most recently the regular size).  Now, they don't sell them anymore.   I've been underwhelmed by CVS's One + Other, Target and Ulta.

@SportyGirly125 looks promising!  Thanks!

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

I use the Cotton Rounds too. @greeneyedgirl107 I put my vote there.

They are pretty handy.  I even have some reusable ones by Sephora and Glow Recipie โœจ๏ธ and a similar style as reusable nail polish remover wipes. ๐ŸŒŽ โ™ป๏ธ

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@CynthieLu ya know what would be a helpful product for me?  Something like a makeup eraser but with the shape of a cotton ball.  Basically, a reusable makeup erasing ball.  Do they have those?!

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

Ooooh that sounds good @greeneyedgirl107 I wonder if that does exist out there ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@CynthieLu we might have to develop it and go on Shark Tank!

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

Oooh, it could be different sized reusables @greeneyedgirl107 like a little selection. Different shapes for different needs, I love it! ๐ŸŒŽ  ๐Ÿฆˆ 

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@CynthieLu Yessss!

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

I use cotton rounds...I feel like cotton balls always leave behind little cotton strings..

 

I love Swispers brand!!  My favorite products from this brand are the cotton rounds and the Cleansing Pads which are like a cotton round but they are bigger and rectangle shaped!!

 

I prefer to use the Cleansing Pads...especially for makeup remover and toners! You can even use the Cleansing Pads as a disposable mini face cloth! They are about the size of the palm of the hand.

 

The Swispers Cleansing Pads and cotton rounds do not fall apart and they don't leave any cotton strings/pieces on my skin!! 

 

You can find Swispers at Walmart, Amazon and other stores 

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@greeneyedgirl107 - I have the jumbo cotton balls from Meijer.  They're not the softest.  I buy them because they're inexpensive and hold up great, not because they're cloud-like. ๐Ÿ˜„

 

If you still have a bag for the ones you like, keep it.  Use it to compare type of cotton, manufacturer, and distributor.  If you find one that matches, you may like that one.

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@Titian06 that a good idea about the bag!!!  I did keep it.

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@greeneyedgirl107 I am surprised you don't like the ones from Target.  I really like them.

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@greeneyedgirl107 I use Shiseido Facial Cotton 40 sheets sometimes but love Target jumbo cotton balls.

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

I agree with you! These are probably the most gentle cottons pads Iโ€™ve used

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@SportyGirly125 thanks for the info.  I found Target a bit scratchy.  I guess I'll have to try Rite Aid, Walgreens, Wal-Mart and whatever local grocery stores have.  Such a simple item has become complex. 

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@greeneyedgirl107 @I know sprouts and Whole Foods has their own brand of cotton balls I have tried but not sure on the scratchiness. 

Re: Favorite cotton balls?

@SportyGirly125 I didn't even think of those!  Thanks.
