French luxury brand Chanel introduces a cotton pad to remove makeup. At $20 per pack, the pads cost as much as the cosmetics the luxury brand is also known for.
According to the brand’s website, Chanel’s Le Coton pads boast of a Japanese-design, handpicked Egyptian cotton and an inner filling “comprised of lightly entwined, elastic Australian fibers.” Emblazoned on each cotton pad is the Chanel logo.
“CHANEL brings the highest-quality cosmetic cotton pads to the U.S., lending pure luxury to a woman’s daily cleansing and toning ritual. LE COTON is an exquisitely soft tri-layer pad developed in Japan: its outer lining, made from delicate, handpicked Egyptian cotton, and its inner filling, comprised of lightly entwined, elastic Australian fibers. Combined, this ultra-absorbent, lint-free composition increases the effectiveness of CHANEL Cleansers and Toners, treating even the most sensitive skin to unparalleled gentleness. Each LE COTON pad is generously sized and delicately embossed with the world-renowned CHANEL logo.”
Aside from the logo, there are no other difference between Chanel’s Le Coton pads and its $2 drugstore counterpart. Both pads were found to be equally soft and gentle on the face.
