To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought these because they look cool but they work far less well than an ordinary q-tip for me. I pretty much just keep them for decoration now. I heard they are better if you have dry light colored ear wax as opposed to the orangey sticky kind.
I LOVE BLACK! So...I bought these to display in my bathroom thinking they wouldn't really be great for their intended purpose. They are beautiful in my bathroom AND the spiral shape makes these even better than traditionally shaped swabs. Cleaner ears, make-up smudges gone, and compliments from guests. Who knew black cotton swabs could be so cool?!
