PRODUCT REVIEW: Walgreens® Well Beginnings® Premium Diapers

Posted August 13, 2015 by Fizzy Pop in diapers, Fizzy Pop, Fizzy Pop Collection, Pinch Me, product review, Walgreens, Walgreens Well Beginnings Premium Diapers / 0 Comments

Diapers, where do you begin.  Diapers need to fulfill several vital functions at a price that is affordable.  Not diapering is really not an option, at least not for me!  On the other end the price of diapers has to be budget-able.  Diapers need to fit comfortably, be absorbent, and also not cause irritation to sensitive skin.  Having the opportunity to try Walgreens Well Beginnings Diapers through PinchMe I decided to really put them through the test.

My sample package included two diapers.  Now, let’s face it, you don’t give  a new diaper a test on the overnight.   Too many things can go wrong there.  But I really wanted to put them to the test, so I went with nap time.  So, protected by Well Beginnings we began the nap time struggle.  You know the one, not wanting the pillow or blanket to must have it, not wanting a hug or kiss to will die without it, getting up every minute once all tucked in to see if you are watching, finally thank the nap time angels asleep.  Two and a half hours later to test the experiment for leaks.  Diaper one past the test for leaks.  Also no sign of irritation with our sensitive skin which is a massive bonus.  Monkey Boy didn’t complain about the fit either so I guess the first try passed the major tests. 

The truth is Walgreens Well Beginnings diapers seem to be pretty sturdy yet gentle diapers.  They are not something I personally can purchase for my home however.  Monkey’s cousin Goobie (go with it!) has sensitivity issues with this particular brand and cannot use them.  Since we use the same diapers in the same size it seems ridiculous to purchase two different types of diapers.  Not to mention completely not budget-able.  I must mention that I did receive these diapers free from PinchMe to sample and review, all opinions expressed in this review are my own.

PRODUCT REVIEW: GOLD BOND Ultimate Healing Lotion

PRODUCT REVIEW: GOLD BOND Ultimate Healing Lotion

While I’ve been familiar with the Gold Bond line of products for a long time I’ve never actually used them.  Pinch Me provided an opportunity to try not just one Gold Bond item but two!  Before I go any further I have to admit I’m sorta kinda a lotion snob.  I want something that is super moisturizing due to dry skin and excezma.  I want something that smells good though not heavily perfumed.  I want something that absorbs fast but doesn’t leave a greasy feeling residue on my skin.  I want a lot.  Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion delivered on a few of these and missed on a few as well. We’ll start with what I liked.  I loved the clean fresh scent of the lotion.  It wasn’t heavy nor perfume-y.  It was really fresh and balanced.  I loved the way it left my skin feeling very moisturized and smooth; […]

PRODUCT REVIEW: Kraft® Seasoned Grated Parmesan Cheese

PRODUCT REVIEW: Kraft® Seasoned Grated Parmesan Cheese

Cheese, in all varieties and forms is a staple in my household.  We add it to virtually anything or just snack on it.  Kraft® Seasoned Grated Parmesan Cheese was an excellent addition to our cheese habit.  Not that I advocate ‘snacking’ on grated cheese but that doesn’t mean I also don’t sneak a pinch here or there! At least a couple of times a month I make Alfredo from scratch.  The rest of the time I’m lazy, erm I mean pinched for time and use a package mix.  Either way the basic ingredient is Parmesan cheese.  I prefer to use shredded or shaved Parmesan when I’m making from scratch.  I always add more when I use a package mix.  The last few times we have had Alfredo I added in the Kraft Seasoned Grated Parmesan Cheese to experiment with the extra flavor.  Each time, scratch and mix, it was a […]

PRODUCT REVIEW: Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash in White Strawberry and Mint

PRODUCT REVIEW: Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash in White Strawberry and Mint

I have always been a fan of the Olay brand of products.  I’ve used them for decades (not that I want to date myself by any means!)  I like that they make my skin feel silky and moisturized.  I like that they have a pleasant scent as well.  I like that they are moderately priced making them an affordable option when selecting personal hygiene products.  I like a lot about Olay.The White Strawberry and Mint body was was no exception.  I left my skin feeling silky and moisturized, though still clean as well.  However, the strawberry scent was a little too sweet.  It reminded me a lot of the scent of a lip gloss I used as a kid.  The girls loved the body wash and always wants it with their bath.  Even the boy’s wanted to try it out!  Personally, for me, I’m not a fan of food scented […]
