This is much smaller than standard cotton rounds. There are seams around the edges that means it doesn't fall apart like all the organic ones. But the edges are sharp and scrape the skin if not careful around the eyes. I don't like the feel of these: I have multi-sensory processing disorder and the cotton feels synthetic to my hands. It's not: it says 100% cotton but the processing must add chemicals of some sort. However, they go back to very sft when wet with toner. But the price! YIKES! I paid more for 1 of these than a set of 3 organic ones was somewhere else. (I needed these fast so bought here.) Not sure I would repurchase if not in a bind: I strongly dislike how the organic ones fall apart but these have a circular edge that is hazardous to my skin. If you have sensitive skin, I'd skp these. Also don't like the smaller size. All and all, they're not bad, it just depends your needs. My M.S.P.D. makes these hard to handle out of the package before wet. Much room for improvement but not too bad.
These are more pricey than other cotton rounds. But other brands are either kinda scratchy, leave cotton behind on your skin, or they're thin and split apart when they get too wet. These ones do none of that. They are nice and thick, and hold up well.
