This is a compensated post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
One of the things that I first noted about our house when we originally looked at it was the fact that there is a Walgreens just down the road, only a minute or two away. While the proximity to Walgreens wasn’t the top selling point, it was definitely something that we took into consideration, because Walgreens has always been the store that we ‘run up to’ whenever we need something. It’s also our first choice for pharmacy needs when filling prescriptions, and I buy many of our over-the-counter medications there too – including many of the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products. Recently, I had the chance to try out their Triple Antibacterial ointment.
What it is:
Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products provide a lower cost option than other national brands while most contain the same ingredients. And not only are they recommended by Walgreen’s pharmacists, but they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee as well. With increases in health care costs, families are struggling – and looking at saving money on items like over-the-counter medications can help when it comes to the family budget.
Walgreens cares about the overall well-being of their shoppers and strives to help them live a well life. The Walgreens brand over-the-counter medications, or “Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products,” not only help our shoppers maintain their health, but also help them manage rising health care costs in difficult economic times. Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products are recommended by Walgreens pharmacists, who have been a trusted community resource for over 100 years.
Here’s our take on it:
With an active family, antibacterial ointment is something that we always keep on hand. I hadn’t specifically tried the Walgreens Brand Triple Antibiotic Ointment before this, so was curious to see if we’d notice any difference from the national brand that we’d used before. So far I’ve used it on my youngest daughter’s thumb, my own thumb (thumb injuries seem to be going around, lol), and my husband has used it on a few cuts that he’s had on his arms or hands from work. While this isn’t the kind of product that you can actually ‘see’ working – I can say that we’ve had no trouble with infections from cuts or scratches while using it, and it’s very easy to apply. I also like that this product comes in a 1.0 ounce size, which should last us for quite some time. When I checked the pricing versus the national brand, I saw that it’s about half the cost for the same amount of product, at least at our stores here. Given everything, I definitely plan to keep using the Walgreens Brand Triple Antibiotic Ointment because it’s a better value for us overall.
