Shiseido Facial Cotton and The Bay create works of art!

Been wondering if there could be another use for the 20 packs of Shiseido Facial Cotton pads that you have lying around the house? Why not create a Snow Queen inspired design out of them like the clever Visual Merchandising teams at The Bay stores across Canada have been doing!?!

I'm pretty damned impressed at the intricate work that these teams are doing and my fave has got to be this one above by the team at Oakridge Centre - if I were a Snow Queen I would totally want to wear it!

You can check them all out and vote for your fave at www.facebook.com/ShiseidoCanada.and if you stop by your local participating The Bay store you can see their creation for yourself on display until January 15th.

Of course other then just making great outfits - you know how much I already love Shiseido Facial Cotton - 165 sheets - $9 - the first time I bought them I thought it was a crazy amount to pay for cotton pads but after using them I could never let another cheapo cotton pad touch my face again!

I never realized how much work actually goes into making them:

They're 100% cotton - made from textile quality hand picked cotton with only the medium and long fibres - 123,600 in each sheet to be exact - to create a stronger and high quality pad (which is why they don't fall apart while using). Then an exclusive water jet process elongates the cotton to create a facial pad with 15-20 sheets of cotton layered together and this is what helps to dispense the product you use on them back onto the skin without absorbing into the cotton sheet - cotton carries and releases moisture easily making it perfect for the job.

Available at The Bay, Sears, select Shoppers Drug Mart locations, Murale, London Drugs, Ogilvy, Sephora and Jean Coutu.

  2. I've used them before, and they are excellent. I sometimes buy them for myself as a special treat.
