More expensive but worth it

Unlike other (cheaper) brands, this one:
- Doesn't snap when you put pressure on it
- Doesn't lose its cotton bud with a little winding action
- Doesn't leave fibres everywhere

Not all cotton buds are created equal.

I've always bought Swisspers cotton buds, but more out of unthinking habit than any loyalty to the brand. Recently though I tried some budget ones... and now I won't be buying non-Swisspers buds again. The cheap ones just unwound into a mess as soon as they were being used, and some of them just had the whole cotton bud slip off the stick!
This is the sort of item that, no matter what you are using it for, your goal is dainty, direct and gentle application. Having that unravel (literally) can cause a mess.

I love these, use them everyday after my shower to clean my ears. However the cotton part tends to come off the stick too easily.

The only brand I trust

The only brand I trust! Bought another brand while away, and not the same. My husband loves to clean his ears (not sure what that is about?) so I only buy Swisspers!

Nothing special

These cotton tips are nice and tightly woven, they don't fluff. However they also are not the most absorbent of cotton tips. There is adequate cotton on each stick for a range of jobs such as ears, make up fixing, nail polish tidying etc..
I did notice that the sticks on some of them were not quite strong enough and would bend at times.
I really can't see the difference between these and the no name ones I have tried. I would only repurchase these if they are on special.

Essential in the bathroom cupboard

These are perfect, compact, strong, absorbent and do not fray too easily.
I use these for applying a direct pimple cream so as not to apply oil from my face, for cleaning up nail polish, makeup smudging and so many other things. They are cheap, convenient and have endless purposes. I love them.

Essential cotton tips

These cotton tips are great for the beauty lover as well as the whole family. I mainly use these to dip into nail polish remover to clean up around my nails after painting them or to fix up any smudges/mistakes on my eye makeup. These can also be used to provide precise application of treatment products such as acne treatment gels onto small spots on the face. Overall these are great but I also find that the cheaper home brand alternatives do the same jobs and I'm more likely to chose the latter over these.

Staple product!

Lovely and soft for the inside of your ear, I can't recommend these enough. I have also never had an issue with the cotton tips falling off in my ear, which has happened to me before. SO Swisspers is therefore the only brand I buy cotton tips from.

I usually use the cheaper brands that don't have much cotton on either end and is quite hard and rough against skin. These cotton buds had nice plump soft cotton either ends so was very gentle against my skin.

A great cotton tip that doesnt fluff off

I buy these for their many uses, for the ears and also for removing nail polish on the sides of my fingers and also for fixing up make up.
They come in a variety of sizes and they are perfect for the ears because unlike others which just fluff off and leave me with a hard pointy stick in my ear, these stay intact and do what theyre supposed to.
