The Cotton Swabs Paper Sticks from up & up™ are multipurpose and hygienic. The pack includes 500 cotton swabs with paper sticks that are soft and absorbent for all of your skin care needs. These cotton swabs come in a convenient pack and are great for makeup application and blending, touching up nail polish, cleaning electronics, delicate baby care and more.
I don't buy cotton swabs that often because I buy the 500 pack and only use 2 per day, but the quality of the pack I just bought is different than the last pack. The cotton is wound tighter, making the swab less fluffy. It also doesn't absorb liquid as well, like makeup remover, making me need to scrub harder to fix my eyeliner/mascara mistakes. Also for some reason, the 750 pack is more expensive per swab than the 500 pack if you're penny pinching.
I am not sure what happen with your brand of cotton swabs but these are not the same as my past purchase. Those did compare to the name brand but the ones I have recently brought do not-they bend way too easily. I am not happy with these now so I will go back to the name brand. Sad because these were a great deal but not anymore
