Okay, here’s the big unwrap of the Chanel cotton wools squares that Mr BBB kindly picked up on a recent trip to NYC. They’re not available in the UK currently. So, it’s $20 for the cotton wool squares and for that you get a very swanky box, gorgeously packaged with 100 squares contained inside. The blub says that it is a ‘soft tri-layer pad developed in Japan with an outer lining made from handpicked Egyptian cotton and the inner filling comprises of elastic Australian fibres’. So, what’s the deal? Are they really better than the £1.99 ones from Boots? Certainly, they come with all the Chanel pazazz – sleek box, tissue paper covering the squares, and the squares are generously sized with each one imprinted with the iconic Chanel double C logo. The pads actually do feel softer than a normal cotton pad and my first impression is that they feel *ironed*…immaculately pressed and when you remove your make up they feel extremely silky on the skin. There are none of the stray strands that you often find with regular cotton wool. The upshot I think is that Le Coton is an absolute indulgence, totally unnecessary but so luxy and such a treat they’re hard to resist! I’m sold, anyway, for an occasional dazzle-up to the chore of cleansing.
