Kleenex redefines softness with cucumber

No comments:
There are brands that are passed on from generation to generation. In my family, Kleenex is one of them.

My family is a long-time user of Kleenex of most of its variants. Yes, we are now 3 generations of Kleenex users -- from the time of my Mom who always had a Kleenex pack in her bag, to me growing up, and now to my kids who always have a travel pack in their bags. Since some of my kids (and I) have always had allergic rhinitis, tissue was a necessity. Even our cars have a box each too.

But here's one confession I'll make.

At some point in my married life, being a homemaker watching the family budget, I tried to switch to other brands that were cheaper. In my mind, tissue was tissue. Brand would not matter. So wrong! During my allergic rhinitis episodes, other brands that were apparently coarser, would create blisters right outside my nostrils so much faster. It really hurt!

So it was back to Kleenex and there we stayed.

When I got an invitation to the Kleenex event, I was really curious because the invitation looked like a cucumber.

True enough, cucumber extract is the main innovative ingredient that has been infused into the threads of all Kleenex products, making it so much softer. I can already attest to the softness because I took a sheet out of an opened Kleenex box with the infused cucumber extract. Then I took out a Kleenex sheet from the travel pack in my bag. Believe me, the new Kleenex is much softer and silkier to the touch. I had other bloggers feel the difference and they too attested to the great improvement.

Starbucks opens 2015 with a bang -- espresso beverages, food items, Starbucks cards, and promos

1 comment:
Starbucks is indeed beginning the new year with a loud bang as they have so many new things in the offing for all of us.

Read all the way to the end because they have ongoing and upcoming promos that you won't want to miss.


Two new whole bean coffee variants are being offered for the period indicated.

South of the Clouds, PhP 495
South of the Clouds comes in the nick of time and appropriate for the upcoming Chinese New Year. It's a blend that includes coffee from China's Yunnan province in the Baoshan region. I have this variant and can't wait to have the barista grind this just in time to ring in the Chinese New Year.

A Mommy Mundo 2015 Mom 24/7 Planner for a SuperMom!

I love planners. It's one thing a Mom of 4 like me could not do without when my kids were growing up. I started with a Filofax (does anyone even remember what that is?), then moved to generic or company-branded planners. I especially liked one insurance company's planners because of all the space available for me to write down my daily tasks as well as what each child needed for assignment, project or where they needed to be. Whew, am I glad they're adults now!

But my good friend Janice, popularly known as Mommy Mundo, sent me her annual Mom 24/7 planner. Maybe several decades ago, I would have kept it for myself. But I won't need it now as much as one superMom out there. So I'm giving it away to one of you.
