PRODUCT REVIEW: Children’s Claritin

Posted May 17, 2017 by Fizzy Pop in BzzAgent, Children's Claritin, Claritin, Fizzy Pop, Fizzy Pop Collection, product review / 0 Comments

One of the benefits of being a BuzzAgent is being provided products to try and review.  Being selected for Children’s Claritin is  a win-win.  We need allergy relief, and they provided some complimentary for a review.

Our box of Claritin came with a box of bubblegum flavored chewables and a bottle of grape flavored liquid.  With the Minions of Mayhem raging from 8 (now 9) to 2 it was the perfect setup.  Well, almost perfect.  Since the time he was a little thing Munchkin has never tolerated any medication unless it was grape flavored.  Bubblegum – his least favorite.  That hasn’t changed in all the growing up years.  Which is fine, it’s not like we don’t have stock of the one he does like.  Moo and Goobie, they are more amiable but they aren’t fond of the bubblegum flavor either.  They’ll take it but there are faces involved.  Squirt is still a liquid girl and grape all the way!  And with the allergy relief it brings I’m willing to buy whatever they will take!

Now funny story about my allergies.  Somehow I managed to overlook the fact that I was out of my Claritin.  And I was flaring something horrid.  Like getting ‘real’ sick because of allergies.  And not one single Claritin (for grownups) to be found.  But then there’s Children’s Claritin, which is 5 mg per chewable.  Adult’s is 10 mg.  So, in theory two chewables would make one dose for me right?  I’m desperate people!  I’m sick of sneezing, and blowing, and coughing, and my eyes are watery and itchy and I’m miserable.  And chewable or liquid would get into my system so much faster than a pill anyway, right?  So, two chewables it is!  And I have to say, not so fond of the bubblegum flavor myself but I sucked it up and chewed them down.  And I made it through with the Children’s version until I could get to the store to get the grown up variety back in stock.  And, avoided getting sick.  Win-Win right?

Needless to say, Children’s Claritin always has a place in our home.  Liquid, chewables and adult strength as well.  However, we learned (free!) that bubblegum flavor will never be something that catches on in our house.  And that’s OK as long as grape sticks around.

I was provided a complimentary sample of this product by BzzAgent.  I was not compensated for this review and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.  I was not required to write a positive review.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Dove DermaCare Scalp Pure Daily Care 2n1

PRODUCT REVIEW: Dove DermaCare Scalp Pure Daily Care 2n1

So, I have the opportunity to try this new shampoo from Dove (whom I already use and LOVE) as part of a campaign with BzzAgent, which means I totally got it free.  (I’m not required to write a review but well, it’s a thing I like to do.)  While I love Dove and have never really had a bad product experience with them I was a little leary of this particular product.  Don’t worry, I’ll explain it all.  Though there are really only two reasons. Reason One.  I don’t have dandruff per-say, which is what this particular shampoo/conditioner combo is geared toward.  I do however, have excezma on my scalp which, when it’s flaring, can seem like it’s dandruff.  I also have an aversion to the scent of these types of shampoos.  This shampoo though, the scent is muted.  It’s still there but it’s not overpowering or obnoxious like others.  […]

Fasten Your Seatbelts

So, I’ve been procrastinating since last I graced these hallowed pages.  I was so behind on everything, so overwhelmed with trying to figure out where to start with all the behindness.  So I did nothing.  And guess what…got further behind. New Year, New Plan! So, in the procrastinating for really just over a year now I’ve had to let a lot of things slide.  With kiddos in and out of the house and job changes and life changes something had to give and this was the thing that was easiest to ‘give’.  And I’m finding myself pouring a lot of myself into other passions for a while.  I have a moderately successful Sims blog right now.  If you don’t know what Sims is I’m not sure we can be friends.  Or I can explain it to you at request and then you will understand and be part of the magic […]

PRODUCT REVIEW: Nexium 24 HR

PRODUCT REVIEW: Nexium 24 HR

I have had the privilege the last 14 nights of ending my day with the ‘little purple pill’.  Yes I know the directions say to take it in the morning but mornings and medications don’t work well for me.  I take all my stuff at night, even supplements.  Work with me here.  Smiley360 provided me the opportunity to sample and review Nexium 24 HR for free.  And guess, what?  Yup there are a few things I have to say about it. This isn’t the first time I’ve taken Nexium, just that before it was prescription only.  Nexium is now available over the counter.  Nexium, even as a prescription, wasn’t the perfect choice for my acid reflux but it worked really well.  That hasn’t changed, it still works really well. And works really well is a huge thing for me.  Nothing is perfect but this does a great job of helping […]

PRODUCT REVIEW: Walgreens® Well Beginnings® Premium Diapers

PRODUCT REVIEW: Walgreens® Well Beginnings® Premium Diapers

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 […]
