Brandefy Review

These products are quite similar. Our packaging score only matters for these travel packs, although we preferred the up&up for higher capacity and no unnecessary cardboard insert. But the Q-tip brand had slightly larger tips and felt a bit fluffier. They perform about the same, but there is more cushion with the name brand.

The qtip brand stick was firmer and didn’t bend when used. The name brand is worth the extra money



I like the up brand, compared to the Qtip brand it's similar enough in quality. I will continue to use up and save money.
