I will always buy the Q-Tip brand cotton swabs! I love them. I have them everywhere.. bathroom, vanity, office, car, purse, diaper bag. I use to be a nail technician at a salon, and I also had a huge box of them in my nail desk, they were very handy while doing nail services.  They are good for just about anything. The quality of the, is the best! The cotton actually stays on the swab, unlike other generic brands, and they are not flimsy. I have used this brand for as long as I can remember and will continue to use it!

These are by far the best cotton swabs on the market. I've tried saving a few cents and going with store brands but they never compare. Stick with the absolute best because trust me it is well worth the extra few cents you will spend. Actually you will probably save money becuase they work better and you will most likely have to use less. I boy the rounded and pointed tips for different uses and I'm glad we have options while purchasing. I use these to not only clean my ears, but to also remove or fix my makeup, to remove nail polish or just fix a simple nail polish mishap. I have also used these for arts & crafts and painting with my 4 year old son. "Q tips" are a house hold name for a very good reason!

I love that I can use these cotton swabs for many things other than health/beauty related. I prefer this cotton swab brand over any other one. I find that off brand versions are not sturdy as the Q-tip branded ones. The cotton doesn't fall apart the moment you attempt to use it. I use this when I need to clean up makeup mistakes and not have to use a whole makeup wipe if it's only a small detail that needs fixing. I use it for cleaning up messy nail polish applications. I use it for wound care when I apply Neospirin and don't want to physically touch the open wound and avoid infecting it. They're great for cleaning hard to reach spots.

As far as Q-Tips go these would be at the top of the game. I think they may be one of the originals hence the reason we call cotton swabs "Q-tips" but I'm not positive in that thought. Anyway these are durable, have many uses and you get a lot of them in each easy to open box.
****CONSULT A DOCTOR BEFORE USING THESE TYPES OF ITEMS IN YOUR EARS. OFTEN when people think they are "cleaning their ears they are actually pressing the waxes and bacteria further in to the canal thusly compacting it and creating problems later like hearing loss, infection, tinnitus (ear ringing) and more.

I believe that there is a saying that says: one can never own two many qtips. This is the one thing in the world that I will not buy generic because I do not feel they work the same. I will only buy brand-name Q-TIPS. They are so versatile from cleaning out the ears to applying makeup to cleaning those hard-to-reach/ difficult to clean places in your home. I could go on and on and on how versatile this product is.. I highly suggest Q-tip brand Q-tips. I feel that no other brand Stacks up compared to the rest on the market.

These can be used for just about anything- cleaning up makeup mistakes, putting on eyeshadow, removing nail polish, painting, cleaning ears, getting the corners of windows cleaned, etc. They are also inexpensive. One thing that I do notice is that there is a bit of inconsistency with some of the swabs. Sometimes the cotton is loose on the swab and turns into a puffy mess that pulls off the stick after a few swipes.

I love Q- tips ! I think they are so great and can be used for many things ! I love using them for cleaning out my ears even though it’s technically supposed to be bad for that. I also use them for cleaning up any of my makeup mistakes , cleaning dust out of small and hard to reach areas, I used them to apply certain lotions or medications. They are so multi functional and I will continue to always use them !

Of the many brands of cotton swans, the only ones for my family are the original Q-Tips because they are so much more full and coated with cotton. They don't poke your ears when you're cleaning them (which I know ous a no-no but can't stand water in my ears). So, it's totally with paying a couple extra bucks not to have my ears poked since these are so soft and plush!

I use these q tips only to either clean my piercings or when I’m removing my nail polish. They don’t usually seem to help clean a lot out of my ears, just push it more back blocking my hearing. I’m more of a ear candle user. I think they would be a little better maybe if they had more cotton on them, there quite pokie and hard to my ears.

I wanted to do this review because I don't think q-tip companies get the recognition they deserve. I would be lost without them.. I use them with everything makeup application and every makeup removal.. i pretty much use them for everything, first Aid, cleaning, makeup grooming ect.. so anyway I give them 5++++ stars. Thank you Q-tips..
