First of all the House of Chanel can be forgiven if they think I have a personal vendetta against them. Far from it as I'd love to find a 2.55 under the Christmas tree this year (a girl can dream). However if you insist on producing nonsensical products, then I will take it upon myself to comment on them.
My last rant was aimed at their tacky, faux tatoos which I thought were a complete waste of time and money intended for those who have nothing better to do with that paper gracing the queens head in their wallets.
Until last week I had no idea that this Summer, they had produced limited edition cotton wool pads embossed with their infamous interlocking C's logo, for sale in the U.S.
Like many, I like designer bags and shoes but I'm not one of those people who'll pay over the odds for mundane everyday items just because a brand has slapped its name or logo all over it.
WHO in the name of Bronze Universal is going to hand over $20 (approx £13) a time for 100 pads. I don't know about you but I go through cotton wool pads, like I do clean knickers! I use them daily and I'd go through 100 pads in no time. Apparently Chanel le Coton (you have to laugh at the attempt to make cotton wool sound glamorous), will change the way you look at cotton wool pads (I doubt it), as the 3 layer pads are made with selected cotton flowers from Australia and Egypt, which are so delicate they can only be picked by hand *yawn*. Ok then. Le Coton where have you been all my life?! Not.

Personally, my favourite cotton pads are the large double sided ones I regularly purchase from Tesco. I'm surprised Chanel haven't claimed their pads contain collagen plumping properties.I guess that's the next limited edition version in the pipeline.
I can't get my head around their latest effort to fleece more money from the dumb and dumbers of the world who either can't afford something substantial from Chanel so will make do with this nonsense or are so shallow, they delusionally associate some sort of status with owning Chanel cotton wool pads. Even if I was stupid enough to spend £13 on cotton pads I wouldn't even WANT to use them to wipe my make up off my face, I'd frame them! After all they ARE Chanel, why would I want to throw them in the BIN?!
So what next Chanel? It has to be toilet paper right? Fake tattoos, cotton wool ..yeah it's gotta be toilet paper. What a load of sh*t!
