I received a free set of Boogie Wipes early in the summer as part of a promotion they ran via Twitter. However, I didn’t even open it until earlier this season. We didn’t need them as an ordinary tissue would suffice for the occasional runny nose. The first time I pulled out the Boogie Wipes, it was because Lorelai had a particularly crusty booger. Ordinarily, I would have picked at it with my fingernails (yeah, I know—ew), but I suddenly remembered the Boogie Wipes.
Each wipe is wet with a saline solution, perfect for softening and removing the crusties. The wipes are soft, but didn’t rip even with the pull of a youngster who wanted to do it herself. They were a huge hit with Lorelai. The flip top lid is super easy to use (not such a good thing with a 3-year-old who think she’s self-sufficient—she must have used 3 or 4 that very day.) and the wipes pop-up one by one.
They retail around $3.99 each package—quite a bit more than an ordinary facial tissue. It was my big hangup for using Boogie Wipes in the first place, but then I remembered how much a bottle of saline spray costs. If you end up using both tissues and saline, as my pediatrician recommends every time the girls get stuffy, the cost is probably equivalent. Of course, there is always value to consider—having a child beg to use a Boogie Wipe is worth a lot more than the money I save buying the tissues that make her run screaming.
My only real issue with Boogie Wipes is the soft-sided packaging. It’s way too likely to be punctured and dry out the wipes when I toss it in the car or a bag. On the other hand, they do make Boogies on the Run for a reason!
