Someone recently asked me what three bodycare essentials I take when I travel around NZ. My favourite sunscreen, a gel helping me with the mozzies and of course my LastSwab. I collect so much plastic rubbish when I stroll along beaches all around the world. I am proud to have supported such a great company and I love how with the LastSwab, no cotton residues stay behind in my ear when I clean it. It took a while to get used to the feeling of the silicon buds, but once I did I loved it!
Great product, the box could be better but it's good enough. Very practical for travelling and very helpul on an environmental perspective.
I love it!
Love the product! It also seems to work my better than its cotton counterpart. And its a fantastic itch remover xD
This is a pretty great little product. Since starting my zero waste journey cotton swabs seemed like something that was hard to replace. LastSwab is the solution. The colour is really great and I love the range you can choose from. I ordered one for myself in krill peach and another for my partner in whale blue. They look great. The design is quite cool as well and compact. The end of the swab is harder than I expected but it doesn't seem to matter, it will just take some getting used to. Besides the delivery taking a really, really long time and not being sent when it was supposed to, it was worth the wait. My last qualm is the packaging. Mine came in a bag that looked like a bin liner that had been wrapped around the swabs multiple times. This was so disappointing and unnecessary for such a small item and especially for a brand that claims to be zero waste and eco friendly. I'd really love to see some more conscious packaging next time. But overall, good product.
This is simply the best project I ever backed!! I used it everyday, the texture is perfect (better than I could ever expect!), easy to clean, and the little bumps are sooo good to feel in the ears :))) I love you, the people who did this gem!!!!
Love my lastswabs! They clean better than traditional cotton swabs! The tips have gotten softer and more comfortable over time. My wife like mine so much she wants he own. Keep it up Lastobject team!
I have ordered 3 pieces for myself. I am not neither extremely happy or unhappy, it is just fine for me. It could be a little bit thinner for my ear. One is already broken. Also could be a little bit stronger and the case smaller.
I really wanted to like this product. I had even purchased a few to gift. But the fact is, it doesn’t work to clean your ears and it is uncomfortable. At best, it’ll loosen up dry skin, but it won’t pick it up. More plastic in the garbage.
Bad UX .. can’t get out of this review window without exiting completely
At first I was a bit disappointed in my basic model as it was broken, the rod poked through the silicone tip at one end. And on the other end, the tip was not fixed on the rod and kept on nearly falling off and getting stuck in my ear. Once I tried to put it back on the rod and the rod just poked right through the silicone tip. I got in touch with LastSwab and they sent me a new one straight away (excellent client service)! Now I'm using my LastSwab every day and I love it. I knew it would not be an absorbing material, so no disappointment there for me ;-) I dry my ears with my towel and give my inner ears a good massage with the LastSwab, I love these little nobs, they take away the itchy feeling water and shampoo can leave in your inner ear.
The quality of the product seems low, and the feel during use is simply uncomfortable. While the idea is good, the choice of material and design turns out to be too poor for this product to be useable.
Really easy to use and wash. Made me avoid purchasing (and throwing away) multiple cotton swab already.
LastSwab is very well-made. I have no problems with it at all. The white version helps me make sure that I clean it thoroughly. Besides, my young daughter likes it too! Her playing with it also shows it's durability.
The idea is good, but the product is not very efficient. To get a better cleaning I wrap it with a piece of toilet paper.
The swab does the job, though it takes more time to clean the ears than with a regular one. As opposed to other commenters, I didn't find the tip to be too hard. On the contrary, the material is too soft and breaks very easily - within 2 weeks of using I got holes on both ends. Also, the size of the case for such a little swab is ridiculous, such a waste of material! I now keep both of my swabs in one case. Overall, the idea is really great and I hope you manage to find a way to improve the product!
I like the Basic Last Swab. It feel of course different but it work good for me, thanks!
I love my LastSwab! It is so easy to clean. Never going to back to cotton.
Love my Last Swabs! I was worried about how different the harder material would feel in my ear as opposed to cotton, but when used gently it’s SO NICE. Like a lovely ear scratch :) I’ve read some folks have had tons of success wrapping a bit of tissue around the tip for absorbency, but I honestly haven’t missed that feature.
I find it a little too rough on the skin.
Great produit. Thought it would be wired to use but I like it a lot. Buy it and help the planet
Love my LastSwab! I was apprehensive about how a reusable q-tip would work, but it's comfortable to use and easy to clean. I store it in the case and it dries easily in there. And less waste in my bathroom trash!
I was so excited to use it the first time, then ended up being disappointed, as the tip is not absorbent like a normal swab. I then started wrapping a small piece of tissue around the tip and it works wonders!! I absolutely love the product now.
It's much too rough, so I don't really use it. Unfortunate.
I love this LastSwab! It cleans my ears really well and I haven’t bought q-tips since I got it. I was worried about cleaning them, but soap and water works really well.
It doesn't serve its purpose so rather than saving waste it actually created more. It is inflexible and not very useful.
It's good, but as others have mentioned it doesn't really absorb anything so you have to put a tissue around it to clean your ears, for example. Works really well for makeup removal though.
I use this every day to clean my ears and I love it! It feels really good, in a weird way, like a massage. And I love not having to use single use Q-tips.
At first I was really pleased with our swabs. Then I noticed they really didn't do that good of a job in cleaning ear wax, leaving a lot behind. And just recently, the rubber tips came loose, making the swap unusable. I'm going to try gluing it back on, but this isn't a great sign.
Love them. Work really well for ear cleaning. Also, very easy to clean with dark water and soap. They've been gifter to friends and family :)
I have yet to try the beauty swan but I do love the ear swab. It did take me a little bit to learn how to use it correctly to clean my ears out. I try to dry my ears as much as possible before using it so my ears aren’t so wet and then it use it and clean it with water, soap, and use my finger to get into the indentions of the swab. It’s held up very well at home and when I travel. Highly recommend
It's okay.. nothing more. It doesn't really clean ears, but just moves everything around. I love the idea, and I am not buying anymore Q-tips because of it, but it's not very effective.
I have been using my LastSwab for almost 6 months and I am quite happy with it. I must confess that at first I was somewhat disappointed, though. I use swabs mostly to clean my ears and I was expecting something soft and absorbent, like, well, swabs. But the plastic at the tip of the basic model is rather hard and not at all absorbent, so I thought it would be useless for my purposes. But then I thought of wrapping a thin strip of tissue around the tip for every use and voilá, I had a swab. It works perfectly for me. I don’t even have to wash the swab and it is way more friendly for the environment than using normal swabs.
Vert Soft ans IT Works vert well
LastSwab was terrific. It works very well and is semi soft. The center plastic is sturdy and flexible and the rinsing/washing is very simple to do. The only change I would want is for the storage case to have venting holes for when I put it in there after rinsing it off.
I think this is a great idea and a wonderful product. But I do have a suggestion: adding a slimmer version to your product line. My brother has always had issues with ordinary swabs because of his narrow ear canals, and he wouldn't be able to use your last swab as it is now since it doesn't really compress. I'm certain my brother can't be the only one with this issue. Thank you for your work!
The tip is very large and unconfortable, and also does not clean very well... The idea is great and I wish you keep working on the design which needs improvements !
My ears are clean, and the basic is my favorite color, purple, and I feel really happy NOT throwing a swab in the trash. I just clean it in the sink, dry it with my towel, and put it back in its case. Makes me happy. Plus I got one for my spouse in green, and his ears have never been cleaner!
Unfortunately this tool doesn't really work to clean your ears. Just kinda pushes things around in there, not getting stuff to cling on to come out of the ear. I wish I purchased more beauty swabs instead, they work way better. Im trying to think of other uses for the basic style...
Works well. It takes a little time to get used to them as they are not soft like traditional cotton buds. I sometimes miss the absorbing/drying factor.
To me these are very uncomfortable and highly ineffective. I would half to use cotton swabs after using these to actually get my ear clean.
Absolute Garbage. they are terribly uncomfortable, actually they are painful. A swap has one ideal purpose, and that is to clean or remove material. This does neither have tried many different ways to get this product not to be so painful when cleaning my ears down to running it under HOT water to soften the tips. this does nothing other than making the tip warm. This is more of a torture device than a helpful product, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
I love it. It fulfills its purpose.
I find it a harder on my ears than a cotton swab and it doesn’t seem to clean as well. Also it takes a lot of water and brushing to get it clean.
Very convenient and enjoyable to use ! Would recommand it 100%!
I really love my last swab. The little nubs on the swab really do clean my ears. It's easy to clean. I run it under water or use witch hazel after I use it and then wipe it off with a little piece of tissue. It shows no signs of wear and I've had it for over 3 months and use it daily. xo lastswab!
Its easy and I love it. I have not had any problems with this product.
So glad I went with this Kickstarter! The Last Swab does take a try or two to get used to but it works much better than cotton swabs, takes up less space, and is so easy to clean and store. Can not recommend enough!
I primarily use cotton swabs to dry my ears out after showers. I thought Last Swab was a game changer and that I would never use cottons swabs again. Sadly I was mistaken. While Last Swab may be good at cleaning out your ears, the material the tip is made from isn't absorbent at all and I just end up spreading the water around my ear holes. I will always bring them with me when I travel or use them if I can't get a cotton swab to use in a pinch, but they just don't perform as well for my use as cotton swabs to completely get rid of cotton swabs.
The tip is a bit tough and it does not have the soft touch of a cotton tip. Cleaning is easy though and it works well for travelling.
What an amazing product. I do a lot of multiday backpacking trips and thanks to Last Swab I never have to go days at a time without cleaning my ears! Not to mention Last Swab saves on waste, and I think it cleans better than traditional cotton q-tips.
Works very well! I mainly use it post-shower & I just get a single square of toilet paper to dry/wipe it off as I use it. Great little device!
I love my LastSwab! It's definitely changed the way I go about cleaning my ears, since it isn't absorbent like typical cotton swabs. After a shower, I use it to loosen gunk up and then follow with a thin washcloth. Also, there's nothing like it for ear itches!!! Allergies make my ears itch big time, and typical cotton swabs don't always cut it. LastSwab does!
I really like LastSwab! I think it cleanses really well and it's very pleasant. It is just not very absorbant of the water (after the shower, for example), so I use just one wooden swab to absorb the water, and then I use LastSwab. Just a thing: the first one I got tore :( It hurts when I use it so I had to buy another one. I hope it won't break!
I was incredibly excited for these and really wanted to love them, but they don't seem to actually grab anything, and unfortunately, the basic swabs hurt a bit with those nobs essentially scraping against your skin. I'm really disappointed and I really hate having to say that because I was so incredibly excited for these. I wish the swabs were softer and were actually able to grip and absorb what normal swabs can.
Like the concept. Tip feels good in the ear. Could be a little bigger. Would like it better if the shaft was a little thicker and was fluted so you could get a better grip when you twirl it in your ear. The car is too big. Logo and colors are ugly. I keep one in the car and one at my desk. My dog popped off the tip on one side and ate it.
The idea is great and good for the environment. Materials are good quality. Easy to use and clean. Only downside to cotton swabs is the lack of absorption, I usually use after shower to clean and dry off, last swab doesn't do that and doesn't clean as well as the cotton swab. Great for itching... Maybe needs getting used to.
Nice and simple :-)thanks
Love it : it does its job, it's easily cleanable, and absolutely not damaged ! I use it twice a week, and I absolutely don't regret to have bought it.
Bought 2 basic swabs, but I'm not satisfied with the final result. One came with a thin tip that broke after 1 week of usage, the other one was good, but the problem is that the silicone tip can't be as effective as cotton tips with removing dirt from the ears because it can't absorb moisture.
Love it! It is a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it is better than using cotton swabs. Easy to clean and the storage box is perfect!
They are great when they work. Except the ends are loose and fall off after a month or so of use.
Absolutely love my Last Swabs (basic and beauty). They're soft, easy to use, easy to clean and such a better replacement for the cotton and plastic/paper/bamboo we were using before. One swab will hopefully last me many years and they also travel incredibly wel . Greats gifts for others who are looking to become more environmentally conscious.
Although the rest of my family have a harder time to accept this (I get them each one), I simply love my Last Swab. It's easy to use, clean, and not only do I not need to think of getting more but I feel great knowing that I am helping reduce our carbon footprint.
I bought them for every member of my family (15 of them). They all love them. My mom keeps it in her purse, my dad in the bathroom. My sister keeps hers on the dresser. They all say that they are great, easy to clean and easy to use!
This is being required.
Love love love the lastswab. The quality is amazing, and I've literally rid my life of single-use swabs. Getting the tissue aswell!
I love it! It’s great for the enviroment and it’s very easy to use and clean. It doesn’t hurt at all, on the contrary - it’s soft. The variety of colours pleased me, love them all!
I loved the packaging, the box is robust and choice of colours was plenty. However, as the basic Lastswab doesn't absorb it doesn't work after washing hair for example. I was thinking of buying the beauty version but if it doesn't absorb not sure whether there is any point.
So far we love not having to buy writs ever again.
I got the LastSwab because I'd recently got a new nose ring and needed to clean it twice a day (that's a lot of cotton buds). I loved it, it was a good texture and cleaned the area very well. And I never had to buy another huge box of cotton buds again!
I love the idea of LastSwabs and also the product itself ( I have both beauty and basic). However, I think there is still room for product improvements. As stated in other reviews, the advantage of disposable cotton buds is that the absorbs stuff like make up and water, the main usage purpose of cotton buds. When using the beauty version it does smash parts of your makeup rather than removing it. Same is with the basic version, I feel it is not really effective in cleaning your ears. Maybe it would be useful to work on an improved version of LastSwabs with another material at the tip of the products, e.g. material that absorbs more but still is washable. This would really encourage me to buy more of your products and give them away as presents. Otherwise great work guys!
Thank you so much! I have both the regular and the make-up one, and love them. Especially also appreciate the cases they come in, because they allow me to bring them when I'm travelling and they keep protected.
I like it a lot, it does not pick up moisture - so you need to wait a little after you shower to use it, so the earwax is not so watery, otherwise you will not get it all. But I do recommend it, it is easily washed and the box is perfect for transport. I would just order it in good time, because the site does not show if it is in stock, I waited over a month and it was a Christmas present, it barely arrived and it took me many mails.
I got five of them for all of my family and we love it! Easy to handle, easy to clean and perfect for carrying in when travelling. Defenitely worth an investment!
I am a little sad wrap the swap dont Pick up moist, but part from that I love the swap
It is wonderful
I really wanted to say goodbye to disposable cotton wool buds forever, however in this instance, it's not to be unfortunately. I bought both the makeup and ear cleaning swabs. The packaging was great and very robust for travelling/storing, however neither buds lived up to my expectations. The makeup swabs just smeared makeup around my face. It didn't remove it at all. The ear swab was as ineffective. I've realised that the reason why the disposables are so good, is because they ABSORB moisture. These swabs don't do that. So for my makeup, I need to add makeup remover lotion to a swab and use it to remove eyeliner/mascara which I've very clumsily applied. As the swabs are rubbery, they can't absorb the lotion, so end up making an event worse mess of my already rubbish makeup. I had the same issue with the ear swabs- I often use disposables to remove excess water from my ears after swimming. Like the makeup swab, this wasn't at all possible. I love the idea, but unless the swabs can be redesigned to absorb, I won't be using again or recommending to anyone. Shame, as they cost me quite a bit and I was so excited to receive them!
I love my lastswab! The best part about it is that I'm not throwing anything away. I got one for everyone in my family this last Christmas and they all love it too. Would highly recommend!
LastSwab is a brilliant idea. I hate single use, disposable products from an environmental responsibility stand-point. So the commitment to diminishing our impact on the planet is appreciated. There is, however, a bit of a "learning curve" in transition. It is a different experience, and will take some getting used to!
Really pleased with mine. Took a few goes to get used to it because it does feel different to a cotton bud and because it’s not absorbent I normally dry my ears with a towel after use but it cleans my ears more effectively than a cotton bud. I either use it in the shower or straight after. Very easy to keep it clean and store it.
great idea sono veramente eccezzionali, Bravissimi
Excellent idea, no more swabs in the garbage! simple and effective.
Love this product! No more wasting any money on q-tips plus I save the environment. I've given few as gifts :) thank you for this amazing product!
Really happy with these swabs!
I love it!! Super quick shipping too. Thanks so much
