Black cotton buds – 2 way type
You can have any color as long as it’s black. Yes, these are black cotton buds (aka cotton swabs or q-tips) and they come in a carton of 200.
The 100% cotton tips are black so that the dirt (aka earwax) can be seen easily, and also useful for makeup mistakes.
The tips on both ends are shaped differently. One end is the regular round tip, and the other is a spiral ridged tip. The ridges are better for removing earwax.
The tips are coated with chitosan (a natural biopolymer that is found in the shells of shrimp and other crustaceans), which has hypoallergenic and natural antibacterial properties.

Yes, I solemnly swear that I do not use cotton buds to clean the inner ear. I use it to clean mostly the outer ear. The black cotton buds are very different from the white cotton buds that I am used to, and it does make the dirt stand out. The ridged end is also nice and picks up more dirt than the rounded end. I don’t wear makeup so I can’t confirm if it is better to fix makeup.
For people who love black, or any shade of black, maybe you need to add this to your shopping list.
