MUJI Cut Cotton – Large

Posted on: November 11, 2009

 Muji cut cotton large

You know how excited I was when I spotted this cotton pad at Muji store, finally I get a large size cotton pad in Bangkok. Occasionally, I love using cotton pad as mask for instant yet temporary hydration and I always use regular size of cotton pad which commonly available in the market. The normal cotton pad that I bought from supermarket or pharmacy can be tore to 4-6 thin layers, this Muji cotton pad is ideally split to 3 layers.


Muji cut cotton large - texture


The cotton pad is lovely soft. Muji uses 100% natural unbleached cotton, certainly safe to use. It appears slightly yellowish due to unbleached feature, and the dark spots of this cotton pad actually is shredded shell of cotton if I’m not mistaken.


Muji cut cotton large - size compare

 After tearing, compare to regular size one

The size of this cotton pad is approximately double the size of regular one.


Muji cut cotton large- stretchable

It’s also moderately stretchable. Isn’t flexible?


Muji cut cotton large - back


It can be either used for lotion application or used as “lotion mask”. For lotion mask/cotton pad mask, please damped the cotton pad with lotion before tearing. I personally prefer using lotion only, which means not diluted with water like Japanese beauty guru, Chizu Saeki recommended. (Click here for Youtube demo by her) Because I found diluted way has less instant boosting ability.

The cotton pad size just fits my cheek perfectly, but it’s too large for my forehead, hence I tear 1/3 of the third piece for nose too. There shouldn’t be non-fitting issue because it simply stretchable. Leaves for 3-5 minutes, remove and follow by skin care routine.


Muji cut cotton large - neck mask


Please don’t waste the lotion mask after face usage, used for neck as well. Wow Wow! Two pieces already enough for the neck, did that twice for front and back of neck. My chin was covered as well.


How to hold the cotton pad


For the large size, I only use a piece of this together with cleansing milk, instead of using 3-5 cotton pads of regular size cotton pad. Moreover this is easier for liquid lotion application, only issue is more lotion required, better for make up removal and lotion mask.

Anyhow, avoid any cotton pad whenever skin is ultra sensitive, hand is the gentlest tool then.


Muji cut cotton large - tear


This is retailing at THB195 for 102 pieces (~90x70mm). I saw there is also a smaller pack for THB135/60pieces with different texture and appears whiter color. For anyone who love lotion mask, this is worth to have for beauty sake.


Rating: ….)))  Excellent  Excellent. Willing to buy again.

Sawasdee ka, just found your blog from searching Impress Emulsion review. Your review is awesome and I am so sanook reading it ka. I bought Chizu Saeki book too^^ and tried lotion mask with this Muji pad as well. But turned out I didn’t like this cotton pad la coz I (paranoid) think it made my face get irritated.
Now, I use the MUJI regular size which is ungreen to our world. eiei..

Sawadeeka meo,
Thank you so much for yoür comment.

I’m sorry to hear that your skin get irritated after the lotion mask. That irritation could be due to the lotion you used, or your skin is prone to sensitivity, or the cotton pad isn’t fully soaked, or simply because the cotton pad itself as you said. If everything is fine after you switch the cotton pad, then most probably the cotton pad is the reason.

I hope you enjoy the CS book and feel free to share your opinion. “V
