    These are the most expensive cotton swabs I've ever bought, but I'm going to keep on buying them! I decided to try these swabs only after I bought and fell in love with the organic cotton balls sold here on drugstore.com-- I found the cotton balls to be very thick, soft and durable, well worth the money. So I thought-- why not try the swabs too? I was hesitant at first to spend so much on swabs, but now I'm really glad I gave them a try. These have a much tighter cotton nib on them. You know how conventional cotton swabs fluff up and fray, and you end up with little shreds of cotton here and there? Well, these don't do that, even the stick part is made well. When in the past, I used to go through about five or six swabs during my morning routine, now I just need two. Plus, I don't think I need to mention the environmental impact of buying pesticide treated products. All in all, this product is great (and I can't believe I'm writing a review on cotton swabs)!

    I was really expecting something nice from these swabs based on the price and some of the other reviews. They are made with organic cotton which is a good thing and why I gave them stars. Other than that they are ok. I would not describe them as plush, softer or more absorbent than typical brands. I prefer to buy organic items but also prefer they aren't more than double the price of what I typically pay for the item.

    Terrible! Not much cotton on ends

        Comments about Swisspers Organic Biodegradable Cotton Swabs, 180 ea:

        These are the worst, the absolute utter worst cotton swabs I have ever encountered in my life. I do not understand how they have positive reviews! I use them to get the water out of my ears after taking a shower and just a tiny bit of use moves the cotton off the end and the stick pokes me. They are terrible! I hate them so much I am not using the rest of the package I bought. UGH! They do not have enough cotton on the ends and what is there, moves around easily so that the stick pokes you. They bend easily too.

          These are the ultimate best wooden cotton swabs, but so hard to find! Drugstore.com was my go-to place to find them, and they haven't had them in so long now.....Please, please, please stock them again soon!

          I am extremely disappointed in these. The photograph shows wooden sticks, but they ARE NOT WOODEN sticks at all!!!!!!! I guess I will use them for cleaning keyboard or something. They bend extremely easy. If I could leave zero stars I would. :-(

            These are great. Sturdy, just like Q-Tips, but with an organic cotton swab. It's worth the extra cost to support a company that uses pesticide-free cotton. It makes me feel better about using this on my skin and reducing the amount of chemicals in my personal care products.

                    These work the same as regular Q-tips...not sure why anyone wouldn't use these since they are made of recylced material and are good for the environment.

                      It's an eco-friendly version of a well used product. I do not see any difference between a 'Q-tip' and this version; it just makes me feel better to use a product that is better for the environment!

                        these are not as good as q-tips, but they are organic and healthier so i think it's worth it. the cotton tends to pull away from the stick a little bit, so it can be annoying if using these to clean out little ears, etc. overall, i would recommend these, though.
