Review and giveaway: Boogie Wipes!


Congrats to my winner: momtoem!

There are times when a product shows up on my doorstep at EXACTLY the right moment.  Such as last week, when Vivian started catching a cold, and my samples of Boogie Wipes showed up on the doorstep on the same day. Good timing!  Since Vivian kindly shared her cold with her brother and I, we've had plenty of opportunity to test them out for ourselves.


Boogie Wipes are one of those things that you think sounds completely useless and silly and "why can't we just use a tissue". And then you get a cold, and you get to use this soft, moist wipe on your nose instead of a scratchy tissue and it feels divine. I especially liked how strong these wipes were- they held up to lots of wiping and nose blowing and I didn't feel like I was getting yucky things all over my fingers. I ended up using them as much on myself as on my kids- it was hard to go back to using a tissue on my sensitive nose after using one of the nice wipes! Since the wipes are soft and not scratchy, my kids weren't running away from me when I was trying to wipe their noses.  The other great thing is that, since they are moist wipes, they take care of the yucky crusty stuff that gets around your kid's nose when they get sick, without scrubbing and making your kid even more cranky.

You might be wondering how these are different from baby wipes- here's the answer from the Boogie Wipes website:





  • Made with Natural Saline to Dissolve Mucus
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Alcohol Free
  • Moisturize with Vitamin E, Aloe and Chamomile
  • Fun Scents Kids Love
  • Gentle Enough for All Ages
  • Phthalate & Paraben Free
Boogie Wipes come in three scents- Great Grape, Fresh Scent and Magic Menthol. We used the Fresh Scent ones and I was very pleased. The smell was nice, but not too strong.  You can buy Boogie Wipes online or find your local store here using the handy store locator.  The cost is remarkably close to that of a box of good tissues, and the Boogie Wipes are so much better. Like I said, this is something I never imagined that I would need, but now it's something that I don't plan to ever go through a cold/flu/allergy season without!

One of you is going to get the chance to try these out for yourself! You'll win two packs of 30-count wipes! (US/Canadian mailing addresses)
