~Boogie Wipes Review and Giveaway~ **CLOSED**
There is nothing worse in the winter than little ones and their colds. My little ones have had terrible runny noses this winter! I just hate to use regular tissues or toilet paper because their poor little noses get all red and dry and sore.
So....in comes boogie wipes!!
Boogie Wipes are made with natural saline to dissolve boogies (mucus) caused by the common cold, allergies or otherwise booger-filled kid moments.
Extra soft, alcohol, phthalate and paraben free, Boogie Wipes are available in Great Grape, Fresh Scent, Magic Menthol and Simply Unscented. Recommended by pediatricians as a gentle, effective alternative to a dry tissue.
A little about the creators: *Copied from their website*
Often referred to as The Boogie Moms®, friends Mindee Doney and Julie Pickens developed the first ever saline nose wipe called Boogie Wipes® as a solution for their kids’ sore, red, runny noses. Using the idea, their business backgrounds and mompreneurial spirit they formed Little Busy Bodies, Inc in May, 2007. After an intensive research and development process, hiring a chemist, surveying consumers and interviewing manufacturers, in December, 2007 they sold their first pack of Boogie Wipes. Sales went on to reach $1 Million their first year of business. Little Busy Bodies now operates out of Beaverton, OR and employs 12 full-time employees (9 moms) including Julie as CEO and Mindee as CMO. The company tripled their revenue in 2009 at $3.4 Million. They now offer 11 saline nose wipe products to 50,000 retail stores across the US and Canada including; Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens & Toys”R”Us. Their adult line of nose wipes, Achooz, will launch this spring.
I was sent a large pack of the grape scented boogie wipes and a ton of samples of the other kinds, I even got 2 samples of the adult line, Achooz. Let me tell you, they are SO handy to just throw a pack, or the single use packets, in the diaper bag, or in the glove box of the car. Then I ALWAYS have a wipe handy made just for their little noses! I'm not sure if you experience this or not, but my daughter smears her boogies over her face trying to wipe them off with her hand, and by the time I get to her face they start to dry on her cheeks. The saline wipes are great for taking off all those dry boogies without needing to scrub them off.
Another thing, they don't hurt my children's noses at all! Usually a tissue they start to fuss and pull away but with the boogie wipes they sit still and let me get them all off!
I'm not the biggest fan of the grape scent, but I'm not a candy kind of person (and its a candyish grape) but I imagine the kids enjoy it! I am also not a fan of using menthol on children. The fresh scent and the Simply unscented are my preference.
Boggie wipes little plush toy named "Boogs" they sell on their site is pretty cute!!
They sell teacher kits and diaper cakes as well!!
Boogie Wipes is willing to let one of my fans try their own boogie wipes! "I can offer one of your readers (2) packs of 30-count wipes (fresh, grape, menthol, or unscented– combination varies)"
