Beauty Secrets: Shiseido Facial Cloth

Know what this is?

Some of you may know and some of you may not know this...but the Muse deems it her duty to tell you for the first time or to remind you if you already know that Shiseido has big old packs of awesome facial cloth for $9 USD. It's not the best facial cloth around but it's the best one you'll find in the US and the price is rather nice as well.

Facial Cloth is great for removing eye makeup or makeup in general, applying toner,'s particularly nice because it's a generous size, very soft, doesn't leaves blobs of cotton all over your face, and is nice and thick. Yes, you can get pretty decent cotton in a drugstore with quite a cheap price but I actually think that the Shiseido is well worth picking it up since it has around 150 pieces of more in the bag and is such a generous size. Your local counter carries facial cotton but you probably never knew since they don't actually "advertise it". Normally a bag lasts me for 5-6 months with daily use. If I'm really cheaping it up I can go even longer by using one cloth for both eyes, they are so big you can easily do so!

So head to your local Shiseido counter and nab a bag for yourself! Great price and a ton of cotton to aid you in getting all your eye makeup swept away!

What are your fav facial cottons?

Tell the Muse!

musey! i SWEAR my Shiseido facial cotton. Its the only stuff I use on my face. What I find better than the regular line of facial cotton, however, is the Shiseido Qiora line clarifying cotton. It's dual-sided, meaning you use the white side when applying lotion or toner, and then flip it over and use the blue side by going in small circular motions to remove dead skin cells. I swear to all makeup gods, after using this cotton, your skin will feel so smooth and soft, you'll never want to use any other kind! :)

oooh, haven't tried these but I do love innovative and well made cleansing clothes. (I could't have said that last sentence anywhere else but here without being ridiculed and laughed at).

Have you tried DHC silky cotton pads? There are an absolute dream. I also love Kanebo sponge chief, a resuable latex cloth which removed cleansing creams and masks like a pro. My personal holy grail fabric cleansing material are Eve Lom muslin cleansing cloths.

hey serenity!

Couldn't agree more. JS are my favs but since this is so easy to get and cheap I stick with it!

It has to be the best kept secret around as when I tell people about Shiseido carrying cotton they are like, "what? really?"

oh lovie I KNOW! LOL I have the qiora cotton and it's simply thee awesome!!!!!!!!!! My sister thinks I'm a freak for applying my moisturizer with it but I swear it works so good at buffing it into my skin :-D

LOL i'm the queen of facial cotton lately :-D

hey bora!

Omg don't feel bad. People in the states do not get the idea of good cleansing cotton/clothes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I totally understand how you feel. My sister thinks I'm a nut for using the Kao lotion cotton pads!

YES the dhc are awesome and cheap :-D I've never tried the Eve Lom obviously something I need hehe!

I used to use the Kao Biore ones for ages and ages but they became more and more difficult to locate in the states. I started buying them online but the price was a bit ridiculous, they were my HG for a long time!

hey plue!

I didn't like EH so much. I got some free ones with makeup I purchased from EH and felt they left fibers behind :( But I do like the Face Shops cotton quite a fair bit. It's quite strong ;-D

Good prices too :-D

How are these for removing nail polish? Have you ever tried? I know pure cotton works SO much better than those silly pads they sell at the drugstore (that's "chemist" to you, Ms. Anglophile).

Finally something that is cheaper in Canada! Here it costs 8 CAD and you can buy it even at the drugstores for the same price.
I still think it's a bit expensive comparing to what you can find at a drugstore but like you said, it doesn't leave blobs of cotton on the face that later mix up with moisturizer or foundation...

I am using the peachy colored cottons by Jill Stuart ;) They are very much alike the Shiseido one, but it's in peach colored.
See here for a pic:
It has 80 pieces in a box, the box is quite pretty huh? Will keep it when I'm done using the cottons. I can always use it as a keepsake box for my make up items ;)
