Guardian facial cotton pads

We end Asia product week with an interesting one – facial cotton pads :)

It makes sense to talk about cotton pads as I use them a lot, every day – 2 applications of toner, at least one for micellar cleansing water to remove eye makeup at the end of the day, and other random uses.

I have a great “relationship” with Quo cotton pads for a while as they almost match the quality of Shiseido’s for better price – 165’s for $7.50 (often on sale) vs. $11, until the day I ran out while on vacation and had to make an emergency purchase of Guardian facial cotton pads.

Now Guardian is a Singaporean drugstore chain with locations across south east Asia. I did not know what to expect in terms of quality of their home brand, but “100% cotton, extra soft, ideal for makeup removal & cleansing” sounded good at the time.

Very surprised to find out how great they are at the first use – almost everything Quo’s cotton pads could do, with a fraction of the price!

Here are stacks of Guardian and Quo cotton pads, 10’s each, next to each other. I realize that because they are both quite fluffy, this comparison does not say much :)

For size, a Guardian cotton pad (top) is slightly narrower and tiny bit shorter than Quo’s (bottom). Not a deal breaker.

When wet though, the Guardian version becomes thinner and falls apart quicker. Solution: double up, and they are smooth sailing.

The winning factor: the Guardian pack has 226’s, only cost me $1.80 (tax in). Even with me using 2’s at a time, it is still such a steal. I already grabbed about 5 packs to bring back here.

If you happen to be near a Guardian drugstore, grab a pack of facial cotton pads. They are that great!

About Sparkled Beauty

I love makeup with passion. No, I was not growing up holding eyeshadow in my hand, and I went through many years not having much makup on my face until one day it hit me. It was probably just the right time for me to open up my heart and let it in, and I could never stop.
