My Most Repurchased Beauty Item

Superdrug Oval Cotton Wool Pads

I’d love to sit here and say that my most repurchased beauty item was a bottle of my favourite perfume but when it comes down to it, it is actually something far more mundane.

Boring they may be, but the Superdrug Cotton Oval Pads really changed my skincare routine because they sped up the time that it takes for me to take my makeup off.

I use these twice daily, once at night to take my makeup off and once on a morning to refresh and clean my skin.  A pack of 50 like these usually lasts me about a month as I don’t wear makeup every single day.

I simply squirt some of my Micellar Water onto the pad (I’m currently using Bioderma after running out of the L’Oreal) and then sweep it across my face, flip it over and do the same with the other side of the pad.  As they’re so big it takes less time to remove my makeup and I love how they’re sort of sealed at the sides so you don’t get all of the little stringy bits like you do with cotton wool balls.

When I’m not using my dip pots, I also like to use these for nail polish remover and find that soaking one alone can take the polish off all of my fingers and toes.

I used to use the small cotton rounds but I’m much happier using these and have been for a few years now.  I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve repurchased them but they’re definitely my most repurchased beauty item that’s for sure!

Buy yours here for a super affordable £1.89 or 2 for £2.50 which is the offer that I always get!

    Good quality cotton pads, balls, or Q-tips helps in removal of makeup much faster and effective in the cleansing process 🙂

    I get through a bag (or sometimes even two) of these a month too! I also use them for my Micellar water – they're perfect for it! – and removing nail polish. They're fab and such a bargain too! Becci xx
