I don't know about you but my bedroom and bathroom bin can get full of cotton buds. I previously used at least one a day to put my make-up on (especially for my eyebrows!), a significant amount of waste on a regular basis.
Switching to these reusable make-up buds is so simple. Use them just as you would a cotton bud to apply or correct your make-up, wipe clean/wash with soap and water and use again!
Last Swap state they are tested for up to 1,000 uses but could be used for so many more, saving a significant amount of waste and money too!
Be a waste warrior
Every day 1.5 billion cotton swabs are produced, and discarded after one use. LastSwab replaces up to 1000 cotton swabs and it’s packaging. This also reduces the amount of raw materials used, unnecessary CO2 emissions in production and transportation.
Paper and cotton swabs impact the environment because they are single-use. The average person goes through hundreds of cotton swabs each year.
Easy To Clean
LastSwab is an easy to clean and sanitary alternative to single-use swabs. Simply clean with water and a little soap. You can also use a disinfectant like rubbing alcohol to sanitize it. Please don't put them in the dishwasher.
Made To Last
For LastSwab durability is key, however it is still recylable. Please check your local councils recycling rules as these differ across the coutry.
