I honestly never thought I would be writing about something as basic as cotton rounds. Having purchased the same rounds as long as I can remember, I never questioned the quality, benefits, or longevity of use of them. When I got my hands on the superior Anna Lisa cotton rounds by Luxurious Cotton I was blown away!
First of all, I had no idea that cotton rounds with things like argan oil or aloe vera added into them even existed. Nor did I know that there was such a thing as bamboo rounds.
When you consider the benefits to the skin that aloe vera and argan oil provide it makes sense to have them in the rounds that you use on your skin every day.
It’s not just the precious essential oil additives that have me wooing over Anna Lisa Cotton Rounds, however, but the size of them is amazing!
One pad literally covers my entire cheek!
Before, when using my regular cotton pads for cleansing my skin, or applying makeup, I went through up to three pads per skin cleaning, or makeup application. With the Anna Lisa Cotton Rounds, I can use the same pad the entire time.
I tested just how many times I could use one pad for my skin care regimen and discovered that I could apply cleanser, clean my face, and rinse the pad out four times before the pad started to get thin in the middle.
It felt so pampering. These pads are truly spa quality.
I love them so much I just had to share with you.
The pads are a little more pricey than my old cotton pads, but the price is well worth it. While I did not get these for free nor am I being paid to publish this article, I do love passing great beauty tips on to my readers and this is one of the best I have come across in a while! I am truly excited about them.
By the time we hit midlife we get stuck in our ways, only because we become used to our regular patterns, and purchasing decisions. I am glad I discovered Anna Lisa Cotton Rounds because I go through far few pads when taking off nail polish now too!
While they may cost more than my old cotton rounds, the price more than validates itself with how long one pad lasts. I have used the same pad to remove eye makeup for two days before tossing it out simply because I did not want the pad storing up bacteria, but the pad itself was still in top form and could have been used for up to a week. Granted I do not wear tons of eye makeup, but even taking off mascara alone with my old pads I had to use three or four at a time. I am actually saving money by spending more for better quality.
I have tried three versions of the Anna Lisa Pads. My favorite is the argan oil version.
Made with pure Argan Oil, known as liquid gold because of the wonderful antioxidant properties. 100% pure cotton pads that are lint free, do not fleece and each pad is individually stitched. I believe is what makes them so durable.
Better yet all Anna Lisa cotton rounds are chemical-free, environmentally friendly because they are biodegradable and they are hypoallergenic.
The Anna Lisa Bamboo Rounds are my favorite for doing nails. These do tend to shed but have excellent exfoliating properties for my rough cuticles.
