Both the Basic and Beauty LastSwab swabs provide an alternative to q-tips that is reusable and more effective.

I have looked for alternatives to cotton swabs for a while to no luck. I heard about the LastSwab Basic and Beauty Varieties and had to try them. The LastSwab Basic and Beauty are reusable, portable, and eco-friendly alternatives to disposable cotton swabs. Literally anyone who uses swabs could benefit from making the switch to LastSwab. I got it mostly to save on disposable swabs but have found that they are simply more effective.

Our Final Opinion on this Gadget

Both the Beauty and Basic options seemed like regular swabs at first. Upon trying them, I realized that they are superior to cotton swabs and offer a green solution.

I have been using both the Beauty and Basic swabs and so far they are equally effective. I’ve used and washed them countless times in the last 3 weeks and they hold up and the LastSwab Basic and Beauty hold up.

I no longer have to keep restocking on disposable cotton swabs. Not only that, the LastSwab is clearly more effective than the alternative.
