Primark Cotton Wool: A Pile of Fluff
I know, I know. This is such a stupid post but, every time I remove my eye make-up or try to do my nails, I get so ticked off and frustrated and, well, today was one time too many so, I'm ranting here!
Primark-brand cotton wool, found in Penneys in Ireland, is an absolute bleedin' disaster.
Both the cotton rounds and the cotton balls separate once dampened providing no soakage or traction to the eye or nail, making it near impossible to successfully remove anything. Hello panda eyes...
What's worse is that the separated fluff attaches to everything. Have you ever tried to remove strings of cotton wool from your eyeball? It's disgusting and painful.
If you try to tidy up a manicure, the fluff will attach to your still-damp nail polish and turn it into an unholy mess.
My advice? Shell out the extra few quid and get a decent brand name that won't blind you, make you look like your lashes have cobwebs or make your freshly painted nails look like candyfloss.
