These q-tips are great for getting leftover makeup under my eye off and even more amazing for removing a smudge when I put my make up on. I got these at Rite Aid and they are so cheap. What most people don't know about q-tips is they ARE NOT meant to clean your ears. By sticking them in your ears you can not only rupture your ear drum but there is a great chance that the fibers from the tip will stick to ear wax and stay in your ear and the wax will grow around it! I learned this in my audiology course in undergraduate and the audiologist said the best way to clean the ears is to have water from the shower head go into the ear and take a finger and put soap on it and GENTLY move it around inside the ear.

Review for: Triple
These are great for larger families or families like mine who use qtips for multiple uses. They are very effective for a wide variety of uses. The packaging had a  convenient opening tab where q-tips were easily accessible. The q-tips are not too hard or too flexible, great products.  Q-tips Cotton Swabs

They Q tips do not fall apart which is a blessing if you have had ones that do! They also are double sided so I can use them twice before I have to dip in for a new one! These are perfect for small touch ups when doing your makeup or cleaning your ears, which I do not recommend because your ears are self cleaning organs.

Review for: Q-tips® Cotton Swabs 400 ct Pack
I have used Q-tips for many years. During those years, I have discovered to many uses for them. I use them to clean tiny places where nothing else works. I can dip them in a cleaning solution and get right to it! I love them for cleaning my ears, of course but, there are just too many uses that one might not even think about. I have done tiny detail work cleaning my car, Cleaning hard to reach areas anywhere. I even use them to clean jewelry and clean around the edges of my faucets. There are far too many uses to list. One of my favorites when I am out and dressed up is repairing lipstick and mascara smudges!! Yes! I carry them in my purse and in my glove box. Before I know it, I've found yet another use!!

It's the classic Q-tip! I believe every person has this product in their home, and for good reason. You can use this for so many different things! I do tend to use it for the more conventional reasons such as ear cleaning, and makeup removal. They're always so soft and gentle.

Review for: Q-tips Cotton Swabs, 30 ct
Old reliables! So many uses for these EXCEPT STICKING THEM IN YOUR EAR. DONT DO THAT! Please- coming from an audiologist! I love them for many many other reasons! Use them from make up removal or application. Love the price and I use them almost every day- a staple in my make up routine!

There are so many different uses for these Q-Tips. Typically after the shower, Q-Tips work good to clean out the water from ears. I love using these Q-Tips differently with make up as well. I dip the Q-Tips into my makeup remover to do a few touch up after I've applied my makeup.

Review for: Q-tips® Cotton Swabs 400 ct Pack
I never buy off brand Q-tips because I know they are not near as strong as Q-tip brand q-tips.  I mean it says something when you call this item by brand name.  The way it's made with a sturdy cotton  stem is the main reason i stick with Q-tip brand q-tips.

These Q-tips are classic. They come in super handy when applying makeup because you can use it for precise erasing of specific areas like the undereye. They're tiny enough to be carried around even when travelling although hotels always provide their own packs of Q-tips. I never use it for my ears because I never got into the habit of cleaning my ears in that way and I don't recommend others to clean ears with Q-tips as well because of the health complications. My biggest problem with this particular package is that there are more Q-tips than I can finish.
