East meets west with these brand new Kleenex Cotton Soft Pads ($4.99) that are one of several brand new facial complexion products that Kleenex released a few short months ago. Kleenex is a brand we’ve associated and possibly trusted our noses for years. There super soft tissues are a staple on my desk in the Winter! But now Kleenex is branching out into the beauty world with some fun and exciting skincare tools and products.
If you know me you know I’m obsessed with Shiseido Facial Cloth and Suzuran Lily Bell Patting Cotton Puffs. Well, actually, I’m just obsessed with any Asian facial and cotton cloth really. Don’t get me wrong, I like Swisspers as much as the next person but I always found Japanese cotton much sturdier and stronger!
Until now! I’m utterly obsessed with these new Kleenex Cotton Soft Pads. They not only do a great job removing makeup but you can multitask using them in a variety of ways with your favorite skincare products.
Kleenex Cotton Soft Pads are massive! These are three times the size of a regular larger size cotton pad from the leading brands. They are just huge which makes me beyond happy because I can use one pad to remove makeup on both my eyes! The thinner texture and micro-fine fabric gives them a soft feel but they are very sturdy so, they don’t rip or tear during use. This is extra helpful if you plan on using them to wash your face with. Yes, I said wash your face! You can squirt a dab of your favorite cleanser onto this pad use it to wash your face. They are that strong. I personally soak two pads in very, very, very hot water and I remove my Lush Ultra Bland or my Pixi Cleansing Balm using the warm, wet pad. This saves me from using a washcloth and doing laundry ha!
I’ll do my little infomercial bit for you, but wait there’s more!
These are perfect for use with your favorite micellar water. The thinner fabric doesn’t completely absorb the water plus one pad will remove all your makeup! You can also saturate them with your favorite essence and create a mask out of them. I saturate four pads completely with Dr Jart Ceramidin Liquid or Sana Hadanomy Lotion and place them on both my cheeks, my forehead, and my chin and use them as a facial mask. You can also use them to apply toner or remove your nail polish. Hell, if you’re traveling you can even smooth on foundation with them to save yourself the trouble of packing sponges and brushes.
I sound like a commercial but I just really love these. Kleenex did an excellent job bringing facial cloth to the US market. It’s a trend that hasn’t really caught on the US but I’m very, very happy to see it now easily available here in the US.
If you’re looking for the ultimate cotton pad for not only makeup removal but a variety of other uses, don’t hesitate to grab up a box of these! You get 85 of them for $4.99!
Kleenex Cotton Soft Pads are available now at store.kleenex.com and I hope to see them in drugstores soon!
