You all have heard of Boogie Wipes, right? Those awesome saline wipes that are great for getting crusty boogies out of little noses. If not, you can check out my Boogie Wipes review to see what a fan we are of them here at The Life of Rylie...and Bryce too! Well it isn't just Rylie that is a fan of them. I have a confession to make: there may have been a few instances when I used her Boogie Wipes too. Nothing beats soothing saline on a sore nose!
Well, I'm happy to say that I no longer have to get into the Boogie Wipes when I'm sick. Why? Because the makers of Boogie Wipes now make Achooz saline nose wipes for adults!
From the Achooz website:
When colds and allergies set in, all the blowing and wiping with regular tissues can leave your nose feeling sore, red and raw. Now, you can make your nose happy with Achooz Saline Nose Wipes, the next generation in tissue.™
Our team of doctors and chemists (not to mention our own stuffy noses), created our unique non-medicated formula to break down mucus and soothe the nose while wiping. It includes the same gentle, patent-pending magic of saline, vitamin E and aloe as our Boogie Wipe products and is available in Fragrance Free for everyday use and Cool Menthol for extra stuffy noses.
I received a pack of 15 Achooz in the cool menthol scent, along with 4 single packs (2 each of cool menthol scent and fragrance free) to review. I have been lucky and have not had a cold since I received them, but I am so glad they will be available to me the next time I am sick. The wipes are super soft, and are so much better on sore noses than dry tissue. There have been times when I have wiped my nose so much that it gets severely chapped, and then just hurts worse each time I wipe it. That doesn't happen with Achooz. The saline breaks down the mucus, and the vitamin E and aloe actually moisturize your nose to prevent that chapping.
My husband has some pretty severe environmental allergies, and now that allergy season is here, he will also be using the Achooz, I'm sure. They aren't time consuming to use like the saline rinses, and will easily help him to breathe better when needed.
I personally like the fragrance free Achooz for every day use, but I think the cool menthol scent will be great for those super stuffy noses. I'm not usually a fan of menthol because it can be so strong and overwhelming, but the Achooz menthol wipes really aren't that strong and have just enough of a scent to help open those nasal passages.
Achooz can be found in the cough & cold or tissue aisle of major retailers such as Walgreens, or online at Amazon.com and Drugstore.com. To find out more, visit Achooz.com. Sign up for the Achooz newsletter to receive deals and coupons, and to receive a $0.50 off printable coupon.
