Should I use cotton balls or cotton pads?
Cotton balls are truly multipurpose. Originally designed for use as a first aid wound cleaner, they’re now just as popular for personal care use. They’re great for applying toners or lotion and dotting on liquid foundation or powder. And, as good as they are for applying makeup and controlling application, they’re also ideal for removing makeup.
Cotton pads or cotton rounds, are flatter, have more surface area and are typically stronger. They’re especially great for applying micellar waters or toner, removing eye makeup and removing nail polish.
No matter what shape you prefer, you should read package labels and look for cotton products that are 100% pure cotton, lint-free, hypoallergenic and ultra-soft.

What are exfoliating rounds?
Exfoliating rounds are soft, strong cotton rounds that have gentle texture on one or both sides. The texture helps gently exfoliate skin. Because they’re usually stronger than standard cotton rounds, they’re also great for removing textured or glittery nail polish.

What personal care tools do I need for nail care?
Keeping your fingernails and toe nails well maintained requires only a little time yet it’s important for your overall health. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that you: keep your nails clean and dry, cut nails using sharp nail scissors or clippers and use an emery board to shape nails and keep them snag free.1
If you like to wear nail polish, you’ll also need orange sticks for cuticle care, cotton-tipped swabs for cleaning up polish that accidentally gets on your fingers, cotton balls and nail polish remover for taking off the polish.
