20110174327Gem tip - A unique device that has two sides, one gauze, one cotton, to allow the cleaning and exfoliating of skin in delicate areas, and normal surface areas where delicacy is unnecessary. The device can clean makeup, exfoliate, clean wounds, be used on delicate surfaces and in hart-to reach areas while changing surfaces dependent on applicator used. It can remove makeup around the eye and perform all functions normally serviced by a tip applicator with a stronger secondary surface that increases the number of uses, and makes the item in issue long lasting for comparable price. The cotton is absorbent, while the gauze side is strong enough to remove all dirt without deteriorating, and do so faster and more efficiently than cotton alone. It is essentially a potentially two-step device, the delicate side for usage first, followed by the stronger gauze covering as deemed necessary. There is no comparable prior or present art.07-21-2011
