This is a compensated post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
I recently had the chance to try Walgreens' Flexible Fabric Adhesive Bandages. As a mom, bandages are a must in your mom tool kit. Kids use and need bandages. You have need to buy them, but if you are like me you are on a budget. How can you keep your tool kit stocked without emptying your wallet? Personally I go with Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products. Buying store brands keeps you ready with stock on hand without busting your budget. Basically you save a dollar with Walgreens vs the name brand without ever clipping a coupon!
But I know you know that ,so why the Walgreens? How did they do? Can I trust a store brand? Aren't name brands better? Honestly, I found the Walgreens worked just as well as the name brand. I actually like the Flexible Fabric Bandages better. I tried the old move the bandage after I already placed it and they moved without a problem. They stayed flexible and stuck very well to my skin. I wore it on my knee and it stayed close to the skin no matter what position I placed my knee! I know I've used bandages that lift when you move your knee but this kept my cut protected. Unlike some bandages there is a small edge around the pad so it will stick and keep your wound clean and protected.
Part of the reason I like Walgreens so much is the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™, every purchase of every Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product supports bringing preventive wellness services to local communities! The Walgreens Way to Well Fund™ will provide FREE preventive health tests as well as other health and wellness services and education to local communities. Some of those services will include preventive health tests through the National Urban League Health & Wellness Tour and vouchers redeemable in select stores. Walgreens will contribute up to $3 million annually to the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™. So just by buying a Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product, you are helping local communities receive preventive care. As we all know, a preventive approach to health care keeps people healthy and out of the hospital.
So the long and the short: I like the bandages. They work, they are affordable and they help the community. So between the saving money and Walgreens Way to Well Fund™, it is a no brainer, go to Walgreens.
