{consumer report}: tissues

I am a lover of fine tissue, and living the boogery existence that I do, I feel qualified to make recommendations. Having had allergies since the I can remember and living every day of my life with a runny nose, I have tried them all. Will my recent cold and the cold season upon us, I felt compelled to share my knowledge.


Puffs Plus with Lotion. Seems like a good idea, but causes me to break out around my nose every time. Which is so sad because they are so soft...

Puffs with the soothing scent of Vicks. Love, love when I am
super sick. These don't seem to flare up my acne like the lotion ones do, but they have the added softness and comforting smell.

Puffs Ultra. This is my go-to tissue for the everyday. Essential for my raw nose.

Basic Puffs. No go. Not good enough for my needs. I need something stronger, and more able to take the heat.

Now on to Kleenex.

Kleenex Anti-Viral. I like their Anti-Viral. I don't know if it actually helps, but its a stronger tissue and it meets my needs. It is also super soft.

Kleenex Super Big Tissues...I love these! They are huge and very very strong and I use them for allergy season. I would even say essential for allergy season. Try them you'll love them too because they are gigantic.

Holiday Kleenex which comes with standard kleenex tissue. This is what I grew up with, and not necessarily what I would recommend. The boxes are cute, but the tissue fails to pull its weight when it comes to colds and such. I just need more support when it comes to a tissue, and this just doesn't cut it.

Kleenex does win because they have a feature where you can create your own box! Had I the money to waste, I would most certainly take advantage of this awesome feature! In a world where everything is becoming more personal, you can now personalize your facial tissue! Perfect for Baby Showers, Weddings and Birthdays! Here you go junior, for your birthday we got you a box of kleenex with your face on it! Yay! Honestly though, I would be excited to get a box of tissue with my face on it, not going to lie. Currently I am using the Target knock off of Puffs Ultra and I'm super happy with them. They cost a dollar less and work every bit as well. Be warned: Do not buy the wal-mart knock off tissue. That's just cheap and they suck. Believe me, I know. Stay tuned for my next consumer report...


  1. April - - we are laughing our bums off as we read this post! We think you are hilarious!! We can't wait for your next consumer report!

  2. lol. I love the Target (or Up and Up, as it were) brand stuff. I'm starting to buy more and more of their products instead of watching for the name brands to go on sale.
