In the selection of cotton, mainly to its touch and elasticity to determine the primary factor. It should feel soft and malleable. Because the cotton pad is afraid of light, including the light in the store may damage its quality, so when buying cotton pad, if it is displayed in a row, don't take the first one, but take the back, because the cotton pad in the back won't enjoy a lot of "sunbathing". Another practical way to distinguish is to fold the cotton pad in half and rub it with each other. If you don't rub it a few times, you can't use it.


Proper use of cotton pad

The material that doesn't stimulate the skin is directly in contact with the skin. The natural cotton is the best for the material selection, and the touch should be soft and comfortable; At the same time to avoid any chemical substances added, such as fluorescent agents. The size should be convenient. The correct way to take the cotton pad is to cover the cotton pad with the index finger and ring finger on the middle finger. This is the most convenient way to control the force and direction. Each person's finger length is different, so it's better to choose the suitable and convenient way to take it. Thickness should be moderate, do not use too thin cotton pad for fear of wasting maintenance products. The cotton pad used for skin care should be at least 3 cm thick, so that when wiping, the amount of water absorbed is sufficient, not only the skin feels very comfortable, but also will not cause irritation to the skin due to repeated friction. If the thickness of cotton pad is insufficient, two or more pieces can be used together. The density should be enough. The density of the cotton pad should be strong enough. It will not break when wiping the skin, causing the cotton wadding to fall or remain. Before use, you can use your hand to gently pull the cotton pad to test. It's easy to pull the broken cotton pad to indicate that the density is not enough.


Because it is in direct contact with the facial skin, it is necessary to avoid adding any chemical substances, such as bleach, because after encountering moisture, the chemical residues in the cotton pad may dissolve out. Natural cotton should be a light cotton flavor, if there is any fragrance should stop using. If possible, you can do a small experiment at home. Ignite a piece of cotton pad with a lighter and blow it out immediately. The smell of cotton pad with chemicals is pungent. High quality cotton pad should have the smell of natural plant ash.

Visual inspection

If the cotton pad is too thin, the amount of water absorbed by the cotton pad is not enough when wiping. The skin feels very uncomfortable. Excessive friction can cause irritation to the skin.

When choosing, usable hand is pulled gently experiment, pull easily the makeup cotton that breaks to indicate density is insufficient.


It is unscientific to judge the quality of cosmetic cotton around its water absorption and water release. Many people think that poor quality cotton absorbent is too strong, resulting in a lot of make-up water was "eaten" and feel waste. The real high-quality cosmetic cotton has good water absorption and water release. Pour about 2ml make-up water on the cotton pad to see if there is any leakage of make-up water, so as to test the water absorption of the cotton pad; Then, squeeze out the make-up water in the cotton pad to see how much water can be released. The closer the water is squeezed out, the better the water release of the cotton pad is, which means that the water will not be "eaten" by the cotton pad and cause waste.
