Most Helpful Positive Review These Are Great
I use these for excess oil with witch hazel. And after makeup removal if I've sweated any while having my makeup on. I use only the TN Dickensons brand, its what i prefer. Others inevitably irritate me it seems. These pads are not to be under valued if u have oily skin. I have both. Sometimes I'm dry but when I'm oily it's bad. Never underestimate the power of witch hazel. If you've been doing lawn work or road dust is on you. Or just for help removing makeup residue. Also if you've been active it will close your pores. It removes sebum, the name for the oils your pores make so that nothing else is also sticking to your face. Like germs, molds, makeup residues, dirt etc.
Most Helpful Critical Review 1/2 perfect 1/2 annoying
Decided to try out Ulta's brand exfoliating round cotton pads because they were sale and for 2 packs, so I decided to give them a try based on good reviews. The exfoliating side is absolutely wonderful and much better than any other brand I've tried, but the other side is like a loose cotton ball and leaves fuzzy remains all over the place, what's up with that? Every Ulta brand product I have tried has been better than most "name brand" items I use, but these need some serious redesign on the other side. 2.5/5 stars for now, but would definitely purchase again if this issue of the trail of cotton remnants issue can be modified!

We have loved and used these for years! They do not fall apart like the other brands. I took off one star because at times Ulta is out of these for awhile and we have to make do with other brands. Stock up when you can!
Gets job some
tara28 from Dallas
The bumpy exfoliating scrub part does it's job but the smooth part is still rough. It'd be nice to have a higher grade of cotton to counter the exfoliation.
I received the package with the first dozen of pads already separating as if they never adhered nor were ever glued together. It looks like you could put several fingers inside. Either way, it isn't a good final product from Ulta. Likely a bad batch since everyone loves it.
Wouldn't buy again. It isn't horrible, but doesn't wow me to wanna rebuy.
Love the texture!!
Miss JoJo from Central California
I use these exfoliating cotton pads each morning and each night when using my astringent. I love the "gritty" texture......not the mamby pamby soft useless ones that you usually find in the store. These actually help to get that dead skin and flakiness off. By the way, exfoliating and gritty are great even for folks like me that are over 65. That soft stuff is totally uselss!!! You ought to see my skin!!
I wouldn't buy this product again do not recommend!
Lizmax from Cypress Ca
I was using it to apply my toner with but it was horrible. It would make my skin feel like I was scrubbing instead of feeling soft. It's really harsh on your face so don't recommend. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!
Messy and a bit harsh
BanhBao from Austin, TX
It does indeed exfoliate. It's a bit too rough for my taste though. Also, the exfoliating side of the round basically destroys the soft side of the next round. It also ate up more product than I'm used to...
Accidental Purchase, Great Results
Cubby's Mom from California
When I purchased these rounds, I hadn't realized they have an exfoliating side.. So, I thought ok, and gently used them when I washed my face. I was shocked to see how much dirt was 'removed and my senior skin felt fine, no harshness. I don't use them every day, just as needed.. I now buy them regularly.

it removes more everything my face wash missed
Best kind of cotton round!!
Jade from St Charles County
This product is great for exfoliating your face skin and is even great to use along with products like Biore Witch Hazel, which is what I use. If you use these in a light, circular motion it is great for any kind of skin!
Nope, I wouldn't
Jan from San Fernando Valley, CA
Use only on face/neck.
Saved my sensitive skin!!
Linz from Nyc
I love these exfoliating cotton rounds. I have very sensitive skin so most exfoliating products irritate my skin. I still need to get all those dead skin cells of though so when I found these in the Ulta I gave it a try and was so happy I did. I use them with my facial soap gently on my face everyday and it makes it nice a smooth. I feel it even helps to penetrate my face soap better into my skin. So not only does it do the trick without irritating but also saves me money because I don't have to purchase a separate exfoliating product!!
Great exfoliating pad
Notaplainjane from Plantation Florida
Great for exfoliating after cleansing face
Kay from Eastgate
I use the exfoliating side for toner, if used gently it doesn't fall apart but occasionally has left little pieces of the cotton on my face. Still like them a just purchased again.
Does the job

The cotton rounds work
Pookie from Michigan
I do love the exfoliating side of these. However I did take one star off because like other reviewers said, these do tend to fall apart. It didn't happen on the exfoliating side, but the smoother side puffed off almost like a cotton ball. Otherwise I'm happy with my purchase, they're still decent for the price, I just wish they were a little better quality. But I've never found another brand that has exfoliating ones, so I'll be purchasing these again unless I find a new one.
Sam from Prov Ri
Bought to use with toner. Falls apart with the slightest bit of product on there and leaves chunks of cotton all over ur face. Very annoying. Won't buy again
I buy these cotton rounds over and over.
Rose from Texas
When I started using these exfoliating rounds years ago they were amazing - they didn't fall apart even when wet with toner. They changed something about them and now they do fall apart.
They are still better than other brans.
I love makeup from NIagara Falls
Love this! Use one side to clear away makeup, the other side for dead skin!
Gets the Dirt Off
California Gold from California
I bought these by accident.. Then I read the info on the package about one side being an exfoliate so I gave it a try and was happily shocked! I don't wear foundation but wash my face twice a day and the dirt that these pads removed as I gently massaged worked better than the cleansers that claim to do the same.
Face is clearin up from We Jo, Utah
Ok, these little cotton pads are the best!! One side is soft, the other side is like super coarse!! I use these for my face toner, I just pout some toner on the pad and use the coarse side to SCRUB. It legit makes my face red which is so good- blood circulation!! I've never had a cotton pad be so coarse. I obviously can't get over it. The coarseness is cause by these little, idk, bumps? That sounds unintelligent. But that's what they are and they stay stiff the WHOLE time! Even when being soaked in toner and scraped across my face. I love these and I feel like they were around the same price as lame soft ones from Wal Mart.
Always keep buying
Alisha from Cleveland Ohio
I always buy these and these only when needing cotton pads. Never fail.
AL from Burbank
I have been looking for cotton rounds with this texture for three years since where I used to purchase them stopped carrying them.
One side is a very soft texture, the other a slightly raised texture that is great for exfoliating and removing nail varnish.
Won't buy again!
Sdee from Longview, Tx
The product fell apart when I got it wet.
I really enjoy these
Amanda K from Florida
I really love these cottons. They are just what I need to help exfoliate my skin and I really like the way they feel on my face. If you do it to hard it will hurt so no need for tons of pressure. I gave this 4 stars because the cotton will pull apart when I take one out of the bag but I do love these and will continue to buy them.
Gentile and effective
Crazy cat eye lady from Alameda
These are the best cotton rounds. The exfoliating side is perfect for scrubbing stubborn lipstick stains and taking off the dirt and grime at thdd Ed end of the day. The softer side is gentle but thoroughly cleans off the waterproof mascara and black liner I use every day. I put micelles water on it and I don't need as much with these pads. I've bought lots and lots of these pads. Totally worth it. I can usually get both eyes and eyebrows with one pad. I use a separate one for my lips
The Best Cotton Pads I Have Used!
Ria from Tuscaloosa, AL
I use them with micellar water to remove makeup and simply clean my face on no-makeup days. Love both sides - exfoliating and smooth. One downside is you have to use a lot of them it feels like.
