TL;DR: Make a small change in order to be a bit more eco-friendly with a three-piece bundle of the LastSwab Beauty Reusable Swab for $27.99, a 30% savings as of July 26.
You may not think much about it when you toss your cotton swabs into the garbage can each day after touching up your makeup or cleaning out your ears, but billions of people with that same habit create a pretty hefty pile of waste. To put that into perspective, humans use billions of single-use cotton swabs every day, so imagine how much accumulates in a week, month, or even a year. It’s definitely a problem.
The solution? LastSwab. This reusable “cotton” swab, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter with a massive $750K, is potentially the last swab (get it?) you’ll ever need. Well, one of two, but more on that later.
While the idea of reusing a cotton swab definitely sounds kind of cringey, it’s really no different than reusing, say, your toothbrush every day, or even eating off of the same plates after washing them. It’s made from TPE, PP and you use it pretty much exactly the same way as any other swab. Only, instead of throwing it away after cleaning out your ears, you’ll rinse it by hand with soap and water and place it back in its convenient bio-based carrying case.
The LastSwab is also built to last and designed to replace 1,000 single-use cotton swabs. Plus, you can even choose your favorite color, just because.
Regularly $40, you can save 30% and get the LastSwab Basic Reusable Swab three-piece bundle (three swabs and three carrying cases) for only $27.99 for a limited time. They come in turquoise, blue, black, peach, green, and red, with a matching carrying case.
In addition to the Basic Swab, there’s also the Beauty Swab, which is designed specifically to remove mascara and eyeliner mishaps. It has one smooth end and one pointed end to touch up makeup in tighter spots. You can also get the LastSwab Beauty Swab in a three-piece bundle for just $27.99 (regularly $40). They come in purple, white, yellow, black, peach, and red, with a matching carrying case.
