Tesco Cosmetic Cotton Buds
Advantages: Easy to use, sturdy handles, lots of cotton wool, cheap.
Disadvantages: Not the best packaging ever.
=== The product ===
These are plastic handled cotton wool buds. Each end of the handle has a cotton wool bud on it. These cotton wool buds look like basically any other ones that you can purchase. There are 200 cotton buds in this packet.
=== The packaging ===
These cotton wool buds come provided in a clear plastic tray. You can see at a glance how many cotton wool buds are left and the size of this tub is ideal for fitting in one of the drawers I have in my bathroom. This packaging is not the best but I solely purchased these because of the low price. I find that this type of tub tends to fall open sometimes when removing them from the drawer and this means that I end up dropping a load and then throwing them away because they are no longer hygienic.
=== Do these work? ===
Well I use these for a number of different purposes and they always work well for me. The first use that I use them for is to remove smudges and imperfections when painting my nails. I simply dab one of these in to some nail polish remover and then I can remove any spillages or extra brush marks before it dries. Another purpose that I use these for is for cleaning my outer ear and ensuring that my nieces and nephews are kept clean all over.
=== Where can I buy these from and for how much? ===
These are available from Tesco stores and the Tesco website and they are currently reduced from 87p to 80p in the 'Price Drop'.
=== My overall opinion ==
I really like these cotton wool buds. They are quite thick and the handles are strong and sturdy. I find that I can use these for a number of different reasons and they always work well. They are absorbent and there is a decent amount of cotton wool on each end of the stick. These do not fall apart and I have not had any loose fibres ruining my nail polish recently which is always a big positive!
I do not like the packaging much but this seems to be becoming standard with cotton wool buds now so I am just adapting to picking these up in a special way to try and avoid them from pouring out in to my bathroom cupboard drawer.
I am pleased with these. They are cheap, there are 200 in the packet and they work well for the purposes that I need them for. The price of these is one of the best that I have ever seen for 200 and that alone is surely a great reason to consider these ones when you need to stock up next.
Summary: A decent cotton wool bud from Tesco.
