I participated in the Pass The Puffs blog program as a member of One2One Network. I received compensation but all opinions are my own.
When January hit and we were hitting temperatures nearing 50 degrees I thought we were in the clear – no major winter storms, no colds, flu or any other type of funk had made its way into our home. But then it hit; and when I mean hit, I mean it was coming from every direction, and it took all I could to not collapse in my bed from pure exhaustion once I got the kids to sleep.
The flu hit us first – it was one kid, then the other, than the other, than of course me. Then colds started, and some funky virus that one of my chiltins brought home from school. Then my oldest got the double ear infection-sinus infection- I can’t breathe-sleep or do anything besides sit here miserable syndrome.
I think the ladies at Walgreens finally learned my name by visit 3 that first week. Cough meds, headache meds, belly meds, tissues, a new thermometer because I lost my other one, Popsicles, Gatorade, and energy drinks for me. It’s like I couldn’t keep enough supplies for my small little army. We were all a little on the miserable, and grumpy side, but who could blame us right??
My daughter came home the day we took her to the doctor for her sinus infection, with a bright red nose. I’m talking Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer nose. She had been using tissues from school – and by tissues I mean sand paper in a box. She had forgotten to take her Puffs with Lotion to school that day, and boy did it show!
I have always made sure that I buy nothing besides Puffs with Lotion. When you are sick the last thing you want to do is make yourself feel and look worse. You don’t have to worry about a red nose, or that sand-paper feel that makes you feel like you’re trying to remove your nose, not wipe it!
Winter is always hard on our face, but Puffs Plus Lotion contains a touch of Shea Butter, Aloe and Vitamin E to provide comfort for the worst cold and flu symptoms. Plus, it’s the only national brand that is dermatologist tested to be gentle on skin and will help you put your best face forward no matter the weather or the season. Puffs Plus Lotion is Puffs’ most soothing tissue with Air-fluffed™ pillows for more cushiony thickness – why face the winter any other way?
