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.
NOT a good option for facial use!
I originally bought these to use with my cleanser and toner, however, these cotton pads are overly rough on the exfoliating side, more than my face could handle at all. It was less exfoliating and more scratching. And the "soft" side is also not very delicate either on the skin. Overall the cotton pads are just very stiff from how they get pressed into shape. The second issue I came across was that they shed so much when using them so even if you don't find them too rough for your skin, you will likely end up with cotton fibers all over your face that you have to rub off like cat hair LOL! So I have officially moved these over to my nail polish drawer to use for nail polish removal only - I'm sure the roughness be great for that! :) So not a total loss, I just would not recommend these for use on the face if you have sensitive or delicate skin!
I have been buying these exfoliating cotton pads for years. They are the best around! I have used so many other brands that simply fall apart in use. These Ulta exfoliating rounds are well made and stand up to every use, so I now buy ONLY these. I love that one side has raised dots to allow for a little *scrubbing*...I use these in conjunction with my cleanser to help get dirt/makeup off my face. I use the smooth side when applying toner. Great product, Ulta!
Have on hand for daily use
Good texture for a light facial exfoliation. I use them every morning with toner.
Only cotton pads I buy
Love the quality and gentle exfoliation.
I would buy these again.
These were good quality round cotton pads.
They were strong and had a nice soft texture.
I used them for applying toner and removing makeup and nail polish.
They did not tear or fall apart when wet like other brands that I have used in the past.
They serve a purpose
The pads have an exfoliating side and a smooth side. I use them to apply my astringent and toners; however, they leave behind cotton fibers. They work you just cannot "exfoliate" with them.
