Skinfood carrot carotene calming water pad reviewProduct packaging:
Out of all the toner pads I have tried in the past, the Skinfood carrot carotene calming water pad is the biggest jar.  The packaging is quite bulky, so if you have limited space, you better make space!  This comes in a simple jar packaging with a twist-off lid. I’m not sure if it is just my lid, but I sometimes find the lid hard to twist off.  I do get it to come off sometimes, and sometimes it takes a little longer.

Skinfood carrot carotene calming water padsTexture/ Finish:
The Skinfood carrot carotene calming water pads are cotton pads with a waffle pattern.  They are the thickest, softest cotton pads I have ever tried and you can actually peel the pads into two and use them as a quick spot mask too.  I was thinking that these are so tick and so fill of essence, I feel bad just using it as a quick wipe down to get my toner onto my face.  I did rip them in half, not peel them into two full circles.  I was foolish, but now I know.

Fragrance?:
There is a light floral fragrance but it isn’t strong.  Smell-o-scale: 5/10 in terms of how strong it is and the fragrances fade right after application.

Pro:
-softest cotton ever
-soothing/ calming essence
-huge cotton pads which you can split in two
-multi-functional

Con:
-lid kind of sucks (but I’ll get over it)

Repurchase?:
Heck yes!

Overall thoughts:
It has been a long long time since toner pads have impressed me.  This Skinfood carrot carotene calming water pad has definitely lived up to its name and hype.  They are gigantic, super soft, multi-use, and it is soaked with so much essence.  I can definitely see why it has been reigning on top of the charts.  These can also be used with all skin types too!  Overall I give this a holy grail status and I’ll definitely look into repurchasing in the future after I’m done with these 60 pads.
