Review: Shiseido The Makeup Facial Cotton

If you're a makeup junkie on the internet, you've heard of the Shiseido Facial Cottons. I generally hear nothing but good things, softer than a baby's bum, a cloud of pure expensive fluffiness. Seriously, when I managed to put these in my basket during Sephora November sale I thought I had won the lottery. Not only was I getting the esteemed cottons but I got 20% off. Yes, I've had these babies for a long time and it's been very hard to review them considering their praise.

I'm going to be the lone and cheap dissenter. Yeah, they are nice. Are they $9.50 for 165 cottons nice (5.7 cents per cotton)? Well. Generally I buy cheap cottons made in India from Dollar Tree. I spend $1 on 80 cottons (1.2 cents per cotton). Call me crazy, but I like the Dollar Tree cotton doesn't flop around when it's fully saturated with liquid. It's soft and doesn't tug on my eyes. It's not cushy and luxurious but it's cotton.

It's cotton.

I'm sorry, but although they are soft I just don't get it.

Granted, I bought 2 packs cause I was in one of those rushed everyone-thinks-it's-awesome-I-will-too-must-buy-them-all moods. But, I don't know. I can't be the only one right?

For those wondering, my Dollar Tree cotton is called Assured and it comes in 80 "regular rounds". Yup.

Agreed!!! I don't like how they don't stay together or feel substantial at all. Way overrated
