For the price, there is not much reason to complain on the little shortcomings this brand has compared to Q-Tips, for example. Just for informational purposes: There is not as much cotton on some of the tips and sometimes bits of the cotton will shred/shed off. There seems to be a bit of inconsistency with the tips; that really is the only big difference that I notice. There is slightly more give to the structure of them, but I kind of like that so it is less likely that I poke too deep trying to maneuver around in my ears. Overall they get the job done without too much fuss and cost less than competitors. They are also available in a large number of stores so you do not normally have to run around searching because they are not stocked – if they happen to be sold out, you can find a place nearby that will also carry them.
I've purchased these Equate Cotton Swabs quite a few times because they were cheaper than other cotton swabs but some of these are missing some of the cotton on them
I bought these once instead of name brand, and it was bad. They felt rough, and like there wasn't enough padding at the tips. Cheaper than the originals, but reduced quality.
These equate cotton swabs work great. I use them for my ears, makeup and cleaning. The price is great and they're comparable to qtips.
