It is different to a disposable swab, because it is not absorbent. But with a little ingenuity it is working well.

Amazing! The product corresponds to the description. It works very well for liners and kohl. simply remove the product residue from the cotton swab with each pass and it works wonderfully. I recommend !

I bought one for each of the women in my family and one for my boyfriend who drives a truck. Any space saver is welcome in a semi! They feel great and though it’s not absorbent the little nubs still trap water after a shower! Love it!

It doesn't clean my ears as well as disposable Q-tips, and it doesn't serve any other purpose to me (like Q-tips would). So overall, I am not really satisfied with the switch.

the idea is great, but those buds are too big, at least for my ear. If I want to reach the depths I reach with cotton buds, I really need to hurt myself. They would probably wear out over time but I'm not drawn to use them. They should be the size of normal buds, comprehensive of those little pegs, not with the pegs on top. I will anyway try another shape because I really like the idea.

I bought this to remove eye makeup. It’s bumpy and uncomfortable and a hard material, though. The swab has to be rinsed off multiple times in order to get more eye makeup off, and it takes some time to finish the job. It might be good for other purposes, but I think it’s pretty tough to remove makeup with this if you’re used to a regular cotton swab.

This little gem is perfect for cleaning up any make-up smudges. It is even a lot better than its for-father the cotton-swab. And its little house means it can easily live in my make-up bag so I always have it with me. I'm in LOVE!

Not very useful for removing moisture from my ears after a shower. Waste of money for me.

I thought I would like this, and find it useful in addition to eliminating waste. However, it really doesn’t absorb the moisture in my ear after a shower, so I ended up using a q-tip anyway. If you only use q-tips for cleaning your ear, and not to remove moisture, then maybe it might be useful. But if you have any accumulated ear wax, I don’t think it would be soft enough to do much good.

Was hoping this trio was more for removing/tidying up make up application but it’s for applying makeup and I use professional brushes so I’m disappointed in my purchase selection.
