Tesco Cosmetic Cotton Buds
Advantages: Soft, good value, lots of uses
Cotton buds are something that I imagine every home has but rarely needs to buy because they seem to last forever. I am not faithful to a particular brand because I have found that they are all very similar and therefore I tend to pick some up in whichever shop I happen to go in when I am running low.
I picked up these cotton buds from Tesco and I believe I paid somewhere around £1.30 for 200 which I think is a fantastic price because these will last me well over six months. They come packaged in a rectangular plastic box with a plastic snap on lid. Connecting the base and lid is a sticky label which is a very pale purple/blue in colour with bright blue print telling me that they are cosmetic cotton buds and claims they are soft and hygenic.
Opening the box is simple. You simply tear the label and pop open the lid. You will need to be careful when doing this because as the box is rectangular rather than the normal round, deep shape then some may decide to jump out!
The buds have multiple uses. I predominantly use them for make up application and ensuring my ears are clean. However there are many other things that you can use them for such as household cleaning and even art.
When applying make up I use these to achieve more delicate and fine lines, especially around the eyes. They are also great for household cleaning as they are small enough to get into small gaps and grooves eg. Grouting between tiles. For art you can use them with children to achieve a different effect with paint eg. Use the tip to make round dots on paper in the shape of flowers or animals etc - great for homemade cards.
The end of these buds are covered with a generous quantity of cotton which is good as it allows comfort when using them. This is essential when using them on your body such as around the ears and when I use these on my ears I find them soft and cushioned well enough to not cause me any discomfort.
Another thing I have found is that these last well and do not fall apart easily. This is useful when I use these to tidy up my nails after painting them. Just a splash of nail polish remover on the end of a cotton bud will help me tidy up 3 or 4 nails.
I think that these provide me with a trustworthy product which is of a very high quality. They are soft, cushioned and gentle and have a multitude of uses. Recommended.
