Monday's Beauty Bit

I seem to find myself bereft of tips this week so instead I thought I'd share a little gem I've found recently.

Cotton buds are among the most handy beauty tools out there. Now there's not very much you can do to improve cotton buds, right? Think again. For starters you could make the cotton buds real cotton instead of synthetic. Then...

Instead of a plastic baggie or a box with a lid you never replace and eventually lose, you could give the dispenser a lid you can twist to open and close. How hygenic! How convenient! Finally...

You could give give each bud two different tips. One rounded and one pointed for precise removal of errant eyeliner.

They cost about RM4 for 200 cotton buds and can be found at Guardian pharmacies.

What do you girls think?

Oooh, I've used them before. What I like about it is they're not flimsy but now I can't find it in Guardian. =<

hammit: I find them near the nailcare section with all the cotton balls. Maybe they just haven't restocked?

Shopn'Chomp: I have a weakness for great little things like this

Nikki: Do you have Guardian in the Philippines? If so then maybe they don't bring them in? =(

Wow, these are so nice! I'm quite a germafobe so this would be perfect for me. Too bad that we don't have Guardian here in Holland at all, lol.

Hi MilknCookiee, hmm I don't recall seeing anything like this in Etos, but you never know. That place is funnn... what part of Holland you living in?
