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!

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 are one of life's little things that we take for granted LOL I can not live without Q-tips. I keep them in my car, in my purse, on my vanity, in the bathroom. Its one of those things you just can't live without. This is the best brand of cotton swabs. I have tried the cheaper brands and they do not hold up like the Q-tip brand!

Q-Tips brand Q-Tips are simply the BEST! They are the perfect tool to remove tiny bits of mascara mistake without having the redo your entire eye makeup. They also are great for reaching tiny places that you may need to clean like your keyboard or tiny crevices in your bathroom or kitchen.  The handy little travel pack is perfect to toss in my suitcase for use on the road.

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!

Review for: Q-tips® Cotton Swabs 400 ct Pack more...
I used to think all q-tips were created equal. I was so wrong! To save a little money, I decided to buy an "off-brand" version and they were terrible! They weren't absorbent at all and almost had a little film on them rather than cotton. Needless to say, I've switched back to these and won't make the mistake of trying another brand again.

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..

Q-tips are an underrated beauty necessity. I mean, they're so versatile. I use them to clean my ears, clean cuts and scrapes, apply makeup, remove makeup, etc. I couldn't live without Q-tips and keep a 500 ct box on hand all the time. I would recommend these to anyone, although I'd be surprised if I met anyone that didn't use them.

You know it's a good brand when people ask for a "Q-tip" instead of a "cotton swab"! These are great for a variety of uses. I use them to clean my ears (and my pets ears), remove nail polish, detail hard to reach crevices, and to touch up my makeup. But there are hundreds of other uses for them. The cotton stays on the swab well.

What's to say?? These are the best cotton buds. The cotton so so soft and there is a good amount of it. They are useful for
-Beauty - applying or remiving makeup, especially around the eye area

-Feet - removing excess nail polish, drawing or applying cream in delicate areas such as baby feet

-First aid - applying topical creams and ointment

-Cleaning - cleaning/dusting hard to rwach palces in eletronics and equipment.
