“ Brand: Asda / Type: Cotton Buds „
I use cotton buds all the time and I don't mind a shops own brand of cotton buds. I have bought these buds quite a few times in the past and found them to be quite nice buds and also they are very cheap to buy and worth the money in my opinion.
They come inside a transparent plastic carton and the cotton buds are on a white, flexible plastic wand which are quite strong wands which bend very easily but don't snap while using them. The plastic is very sturdy and strong. The cotton is 100% pure cotton and white in colour. These have the cotton on both ends of the wand. Which is handy because I can then use just one of the wands and the tub then lasts a little longer.
The cotton is a really soft cotton and it doesn't scratch the skin. It has a very soft texture and feels smooth. I find the wool doesn't break away from the wand while I am using them and the wool remains on the wand really well.
I use them for removing any make up which has accidently fallen onto my face while applying it. I just gently glide the bud across my face and the cotton gently picks up the make up perfectly. I also use these buds when I have painted my nails and I have slightly smudged some of the nail polish onto the edge of the skin around my nails. I just dip the bud into my nail polish remover bottle and gently remove the polish.
I have a lot of build up of wax in my ears and my GP nurse told me to either use a drop of Olive oil or Earex in each ear but not on the same day and to use these products each day but alternating dropping the oil into each ear. So I drop one drop in my left ear one day and drop in the right ear the next day. These buds help remove any excess oil which my drop around my earlobe but I never use them inside my ears. These buds remove the excess perfectly and simply wipe away the oil.
I also use these buds to clean my laptop keyboard keys, I always make sure that I have turned off my laptop first and then I wet the cotton and wipe it over my keys and in between the grooves where any dust settles or any crumbs have fallen in between the keys. Sometimes if I have been eating biscuits while using my laptop, some of the crumbs land on my keyboard and I find it sometimes far easier to wet a bud and very gently wipe in between the keys to pick up any crumbs settled inside the grooves.
These buds are very good for cleaning in between my grandchildren's toes, when I apply baby lotion to their bodies when they have a sleep over at my home or a bath or shower before they go home if they have dirty bodies from playing etc. I simply pour a small amount of the lotion onto the tip of the bud and gently place it between their toes, they absolutely love the feeling because we like to have a giggle and make it fun softening the skin between their toes and these buds feel so soft on their skins and they love the tickly feeling . Recently when my little grandson came to my home, he had something in his eye and he was screaming because it was really irritating him with the pain, I looked inside his eye and could see a speck of something on the eyeball. After we tried to remove the speck by the rolling of the eye method with the lid closed it the speck was still inside his eye, so I had to eventually use an eye bath with a little warm water and it removed the speck just below his lower eyelashes, so I used one of these buds dampened and the bud removed the speck from near his lashes without me having to use my fingers to remove it and then maybe catch his eyelashes and make him cry even more than he was already. I must admit he was a brave little soldier using the eye bath and I was really proud of him but he was grateful to have the speck removed in the end with the help of these cotton buds.
They are extremely cheap to buy and for just 35p you get 200 cotton buds. I think this is a huge amount of buds for this price and they are super value for money and also well worth the price. They are so affordable for any budget in my opinion. The quality of the cotton is extremely good quality.
I highly recommend these cotton buds, I don't think you will be disappointed in the softness of the cotton or the flexibility of the plastic wand. I will continue to buy these buds because they work a treat for multi purposes.
I give these cotton buds 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I always seem to have cotton wool buds in the house, however, it is mainly my husband that uses them for cleaning his ears (I know!) but I would have used them more when my daughter was a baby. A couple of months ago, my husband had finished the box of cotton buds that was in the bathroom cupboard and asked me to pick up another box when I was next in the supermarket. Well, it just so happened at the time, that I was preparing to do a particular art project in school with some pupils and I had read somewhere that this particular technique could make use of cotton wool buds, rather than buying the expensive tools. So, I thought I would kill two birds with the one stone, and I actually ended up purchasing a couple of boxes of these in Asda, especially when I saw that they were only 35p for a pack of approximately 200 cotton wool buds.
These cotton wool buds are part of the Asda Little Angels range designed for babies and small children, and I have always been happy with the quality of other Little Angel products that I have tried. These buds are made from 100% pure cotton. These cotton wool buds have lots of uses including cleaning between babies fingers and toes, cleaning around a baby's eyes, cleaning ears (even though you shouldn't) and even for removing make up. Well, as I said these were bought for two purposes.
I wouldn't say these are the biggest buds in the world and in fact I would say that the previous ones that my husband was using from Mothercare were bigger. However, it doesn't really matter and in fact for what I was wanting them for, it was idea as it was easy to apply paint with this with a smaller tip at each end of the stick. My husband starting using them not long after I got them, and they seemed to do the job for him and they certainly were very soft.
I found them brilliant for my art project as the little bud at each end was just perfect for using precisely for paint and the pupils certainly enjoyed it. Even more now, my daughter likes to use these now to put paint on and make a dotty pattern on a page, after watching me have a practice at it!
All in all, I can hardy believe how cheap these buds are, making them a viable option for childrens project or art work as well. For cleaning various areas, like my husband's ears, they are a good size and they do the job, and probably the slightly smaller size is ideal for small babies. A great priced product.
One of the things that I always like to have is some cotton wool buds. Not only do I use these for myself but for my lovely cat Myrtle too!
Now I don't agree with shoving anything in your ears usually I have to admit and suffering with wax means I know its not good to shove it back down my ear drum with one of these however I like to wipe around my ears with these as I do for Myrtle who also has lots of black coloured wax residue all over her outer ears and I use them to help remove mistakes of make up I apply and the likes too.
These Asda 'Little Angels' ones only cost me 39p for a plastic carton containing 'Approx' 56 of them. The labeling over the carton is paper and sticky and is meant to hold the lid on the base and on that we are clearly told what they are and who they are by on them and the amount given then on the underside of the carton we are told that they are made from 100% pure cotton and contact details for Asda are clearly stated. I don't like the fiddly packaging that these buds come in and that the lid doesn't fit properly on however to be fair that is only a small gripe for the amount that we are expected to pay for them.
What you get is a double ended cotton wool bud idea. The cotton is not fuzzy but smooth and wrapped to both ends of the flexible and not to wide or long plastic piece.
These are sturdy, bendy but have never have once snapped or bent up too much in use. The cotton stays on the plastic and feels smooth in use allowing me to wipe my outer ear canal clean or I dip it in make up toner and use it to remove say a bit of mascara that's blobbed in the wrong place....and so on.
These are great quality and do the job well, they are not though as good quality as say Johnson's with the 'buds' being thinner but they meet mine and my households needs very well indeed and I think that they are very worth the money I pay for them!
Only available from Asda stores.

Last time I was doing an online shop with Asda, I bought some of their Little Angels cotton buds to replace the ones I had run out of. I use cotton buds for various beauty regimes such as tidying up nail varnish when applying, and although I know you're not supposed to, I also use them to (carefully) clean inside my ears. My husband also uses them for this reason, which is why I think we get through so many.
The box contains 200 buds, and currently costs 35p from Asda. The box is plastic and has a lid which lifts off, although I tend to find that the lid doesn't ever sit quite right on top of the box once you've opened it, which is something I have found with other brands too. Still, the lid allows the buds to be kept clean and protected until you come to use them. The advantage of having them lying flat in a box instead of standing upright in a tub like some brands, is that you don't have to touch the cotton bud part to get them out of the packaging. I'm sure this doesn't make that much difference in the grand scheme of things, but I feel it's a little more hygienic if, for example, you were then to use the bud to blend eye make-up.
The buds themselves are standard sized, measuring around three inches long. The main part of the bud is a white colour, almost transparent, and obviously the ends have cotton wool attached to form the buds. I have found these to be of excellent quality in use, with the main part of the bud being strong enough not to bend or buckle, and the buds to be soft yet sturdy. I made the mistake of buying ultra cheap buds once, and the cotton wool part just started fraying and creating fluff as soon as I tried to use them. With these, the cotton wool is wound tightly on the end, so there's no chance of losing any in your ear, or getting a load of cotton wool attached to your nail varnish when touching up your nails.
I would definitely purchase these buds again. They're good value, and I can't say there's much difference between this and the leading brands.

Cotton buds are something that I use on a regular basis, I mainly use them for applying and removing make, but since Jayden was born I have also found them handy to use on him for example cleaning around his ears etc. I usually buy Tesco cotton buds, however recently I ran out of a few bits including cotton buds and instead of going to Tesco I went to our local Asda as I was nearby, I decided to try Asda's Little Angels Cotton Wool Buds, they looked ideal and not a huge amount different to the Tesco ones so I thought they would be just as good.
The Asda Little Angels Cotton Wool Buds come in a square clear plastic box, it has a thin lid which simply sits on top of the box and can be lifted on and off as needed. There is a large pale blue label on the top of the lid, this has in large multi coloured letters the words Little Angels written on one side with "100% Pure Cotton" written underneath, next to this is a small drawing of a baby. The words Cotton Wool Buds are written on the opposite side in a darker blue writing. There is another label on the bottom of the box which contains all of the product information including facts about the cotton buds aswell as one or two warnings, all of the information is clearly written and easy to follow. The packaging is quite plain and simple but the label on the lid is quite brightly coloured and eye catching.
There is nothing fancy about the Little Angel Cotton Wool Buds, they simply consist of a thin, rounded plastic stem with a small bud of cotton wool on either end, the whole thing including the cotton wool and the stem are white giving them a clean and clinical appearance. The cotton buds are made from 100% pure cotton, the bud ends are reasonably small inorder clean around small areas and are secured firmly to either end of the stem so there is no fear of the bud of cotton wool coming off. In each pack of Little Angel Cotton Wool Buds you receive 200 cotton buds, I didn't actually sit and count each individual one but I would say that the amount stated on the front of the packet is pretty accurate.
These cotton buds can be used for a variety of different things, they are aimed at being used on babies by being called Little Angels, they are ideal for cleaning around tiny noses, eyes, ears and between fingers and toes, the small bud end makes them the perfect size for your baby. However they can also be used by adults aswell, again for cleaning ears aswell as applying and removing make up which is what I use them for, the small tips makes them ideal for correcting any make up mistakes I make without removing areas of make up I do not want to. You could also use these cotton buds for cleaning around the home, again the small tips makes them perfect for cleaning around the small corners which are just impossible to reach with a regular cloth or sponge. In my opinion the Little Angel Cotton Wool Buds are very versatile and have a range of uses.
The Little Angel Cotton Wool Buds are only available from Asda as they are part of their own range of products. Each tub of 200 cotton buds costs 35p, personally I think these are an excellent price, they are of an excellent quality making them in my opinion excellent value for money.
The only real warnings that come with this product is that it is for external use only, for example you should not put the cotton buds right into yours or your babys ear.
Since I first purchased Asda's Little Angels Cotton Wool Buds I have used them on several occasions now and have been extremely pleased with them. The cotton wool used on the end of the cotton buds is extremely soft, there are no sharp bits at all so you cannot scratch yourself when using them or scratch your babies skin when using them, for me this was important as I often use cotton buds around my eyes for make up purposes so I wanted cotton buds that were going to be soft and gentle, and when I started using them on Jayden I also wanted the cotton buds to be soft so that they did not damage his skin aswell. The cotton buds are extremely good value for money and of a high quality, they are also safe to use without fear of the buds coming off of the end of the stems, the stems themselves are also strong so that you do not have to worry about them bending easily. The only thing I would say if I had to pick up on a disadvantage isn't really about the cotton buds but more the packaging, the lid does tend to come off of the pot easily so I would often find that some of the cotton buds had spilled out inside my make up draw, however this isn't a major thing and wouldn't put me off buying them again. Overall I would recommend the Asda Little Angel Cotton Wool Buds and will be buying them again in the future.
The Little Angels cotton buds can be purchased from an Asda store or from their website for just 35p for a box of 200 cotton buds. They are made from 100% cotton.
They can be used for numerous purposes but I used mine to remove traces of make up from under my eyes to avoid the 'panda' look. They can also be used to clean babies eyes, nose or around the umbilical cord. It is not recommended that you use any cotton buds inside the ear though as the cotton can get lodged inside the ear canal.
I have found in the past when using cheap cotton buds that the cotton comes off the end of the plastic tube quite easily when removing make up, however even though the Little Angels cotton buds are cheap, they are pretty robust and the cotton has very rarely come off the tube.
The box that the cotton buds come in has a very cute design on it as the label is blue with polka dots and a cloud on it with 'Little Angels' written in different coloured letters. The box is square with a detachable lid, so you have to be careful you don't knock the box over.
Overall, the cotton buds are a great buy, and to me there are no disadvantages of this product.
Little Angels is a baby range from Asda.
The Little Angels Cotton Buds are made from 100% pure cotton. They are suitable for cleaning around your babies eyes, nose and belly button areas and can also be used for removing or applying makeup. It is recommended that you do not push the buds into the ear.
The buds are double ended. There is a thin stem with an equal sized cotton bud at either end. The buds are then placed within a plastic tub with a slip on lid. It is recommended that you check your local recycling plant to see if this plastic tub can be recycled. The tub has a label which has a blue polka dot theme which is inkeeping with the Little Angels range.
There is approximately 200 buds per box and they can be purchased in Asda stores or www.asda.com. They are priced at 35p.
I always keep a box of cotton buds in our house as they come in handy. I trust the Little Angels brand from Asda and we now only buy this box as they are mega cheap. One box of 200 lasts us ages. I'm not keen on the box to be honest as I prefer a round tub with a non detachable lid. One bump into this tub and several buds are sent flying!
These buds are easy to use and I can get a nice firm grip of them without them being too fiddly. Each cotton bud is nice and soft to the touch but wrapped neatly to avoid it coming loose at the slightest touch. These buds are ideal for cleansing a baby and I always found it beneficial to dip them in tepid water and clean around my sons tummy and nose. They keep their natural shape when dipped in water. Another use is to dip the bud into some nappy cream and dot it around a sore bum to soothe it.
Although these aren't supposed to be aimed into the ear, I do use them to clean just inside my sons ear occasionally. I don't use them alone though despite me being confident that the bud wouldn't drop off. I put a baby wipe over the bud and gently clean his ears that way. The bud can be dampened and used to cleanse around the outer ear and we do that with our son as he gets dryness here. I use them fine in my own ears and they are gentle whilst removing any wax.
These cotton buds are excellent for touching up makeup as the bud is quite fine and less likely to smudge other makeup whilst correcting a small error. I am happy to remove a small mascara smudge and the likes with these cotton buds and they do not irritate my sensitive eyes. They hold shape well when dipped into nail polish remover. I wouldn't use them to remove all my nail varnish as cotton pads are easier to target larger areas though for touch ups around the edges of my nails, these do the job nicely.
Other uses include cleaning between the keys of my laptop and in the hard to reach areas of my bathroom (in between tiles, taps etc). They are so versatile and absorb well. It is easy enough to use one end, flip it around and use the other end without there being any strain to the stem of the bud.
Very cheap and with multiple uses, I can highly recommend these cotton buds.
