I've used these a few times from different shops, and I've noticed that the Johnson Cotton buds are quite poorly made. The actual cotton part frays a lot so whenever I've used them I've been worried about having loose fibers stuck in my ear. I wouldn't expect this at all from a company that sells them at a higher price point than what you can buy Boots' own brand cotton buds for

I realise the bud stalk is now made of cardboard, I would like to see the cardboard tub with a cardboard top instead of plastic

Very good product

Review Text: 
I use the cotton buds when doing my eye makeup and find them much better than other brands. The tips are very tightly formed and stay like that ,even after multiple use. No fluffing out or losing cotton strands which, in other brands, often get stuck in my lashes. The tips also stay firmly in place, no falling off, again better than in other brands . Definitely a firm favourite.

budless buds

Review Text: 
Hi, I don't know if you have changed your quality inspection systems in your factories but I have found with the last couple of tubs of cotton buds I've bought more defective cotton buds (one end with out the cotton typically). in the last one I purchased, I've had more than 5 lower than standard quality sticks. They are still good quality overall but i'm surprised at the number of faulty units I'm seeing in this pack. i think the lot coed is 0240P1 if you want to check the batch quality records.

Now even better

Review Text: 
Don't quite understand the negative reviews. These are terrific & more fit for purpose than ever before. The cardboard stems are just as rigid and tough, without the plastic pollution. The cotton tips are soft and plump & super absorbent . A terrific product, well done Johnson's.

Great Product (Nearly)

Review Text: 
Really good to see the switch from plastic stems to recyclable. Am curious as to why Johnson still feel the need to have a plastic lid ? A cardboard one would be much more environmentally friendly. We do not need to see the product. It does what it says on the box.
