I bought my first package of woven cotton tips in a high-end cosmetics store for a high-end price. I use several cotton swab tips every time I put on and remove my makeup to clean up around my eyes & lips. Regular unwoven cotton tips have always caused me issues and were a opportunity for me to get a random loose cotton fiber tangled up in my eyelashes or into my super sensitive blue eyes. When this happened it would drive me bat sh*t bonkers until I was able to somehow get it out, Which would always leave my eye red, swollen and angry looking... I fell n love with woven cotton tips swab the first time I used them and knew that I would be able to find them n Amazon for a much more reasonable cost! I purchased this product because I did not need 10,000 cotton tips lol since it’s just little o’ me and not a herd of women or a salon. The difference between regular cotton swabs like Q-tips is the cotton is wrapped around the center stick leaving several stray & loose strands of cotton fiber it get into your eyes among other things. Whereas this cotton swabs is woven like fabric before its attached to the ends of a center stick. Each of these cotton swabs has a rounded end that has ridges or tiers and a pointy end making them perfect for precision applications, corrections of mistakes & clean up. However, the pointy end on this particular brand of cotton swabs is a lethal weapon (hence the missing star 4 instead 5) It is so sharp & pointy that at its worst it could draw blood at its best it hurts! ouch! Not something I want to put close to my eyes! I have to remember to tap the point down on the counter or against a tooth before I put it anywhere near my eye because it’s definitely sharp enough to put an eye out. This may not be an issue for everyone if you’re looking for a Very sharp pointed cotton swabs? Then these are the ones for you! These are still better than un-woven cotton swab tips, and I have found a way to use them safely. I take several at a time and tap the point down on the counter before I refilling my swab container, they’re still Pointy for precision just no longer lethal. haha
Pros: * one tip on each is pointed * the non-pointed tip has ridges on the side, which are good for cleaning * good price Cons: * hard--must use caution in delicate areas * not absorbent unless soaked in a liquid, then they fall apart
