Do you love the Shiseido Facial Cotton pads, but don’t exactly love the price? Me too. But once you feel the soft yet indestructible fluffiness of them, you don’t want to touch any other cotton pad to your face ever again.
Until…I heard Youtuber LisaLisaD1 mention the Quo Luxury Cotton Facial Pads and how they are remarkably similar to the Shiseido. I found them at my local Shoppers Drug Mart. Right away I thought the shape, size, and feel of the packaging was just like the Shiseido. They also both have exactly 165 pads in three “stacks”. When I opened the Quo and compared the individual pads, they are the exact same shape, size, and thickness.
The Quo feels just as soft as the Shiseido. When I was using one to remove my makeup it held up as well too; it didn’t start to disintegrate. I cannot imagine that these two products aren’t manufactured in the same factory. Especially since even the packaging is identical.
The Shiseido Facial Cotton is $11.00 CAD. The Quo Luxury Cotton Facial Pads are $7.00 CAD. Quo is only carried by Shoppers Drugmart and Murale, but the square Luxury Cotton Facial Pads don’t seem to be available to order online.
Have you tried the Quo cotton pads? Do you think they are a dupe for the Shiseido?
