At the beginning of half term I got a surprise parcel! A free set of Braun healthcare products from Influenster and Braun in exchange of my honest review! Yayyyy
I received a Braun Thermoscan7 with Age precision Ear thermometer & a Braun Nasal Aspirator 1!
All these technical words but basically I got a brand new thermometer and snot sucker! I was so excited! My old snot sucker was… well OLD! It’s a Frida one where I use my mouth to suck through a filtered tube attached to a bulb that goes on the nose. Its efficient and has lasted almost 4 years. I remember struggling so many times with my son and then the baby to hold them down, put the tube in my mouth and other part in their noses. It was a constant struggle but now I got a new electric one!! And they think its a game and will happily let me vaccum their noses for snot🤣 oh the joys of motherhood! One day your pregnant imagining all your beautiful moments with your children and the next your excited about a snot vaccum 🙈
The thermometer is an ear one and it comes with the cover bits too! My old one was over 4 years old too from Lidl but it was contactless and I have noticed that lately its not working so well. I get alot of error msgs or Low. Well this new one is so cute and the screen lights up to let you know if the reading is good (green), elevated (yellow) or bad(red)!
- Sort our uniforms
- Get new school shoes(mysterious holes in the old ones🙄)
- Cut hair(I cut the boys hair in the first week off school so should be ok till end of the month)
- Temperature check on us all
The thermometer is very easy to use and easy to read! I’ve been looking for a new one for some time now and I’m so lucky to have been chosen by Influenster and Braun to test it out! I love it! It has a memory to save the last 9 readings, BPA free, 21 disposable covers, it has pre warmed tip(which is great for babies and kids, has a nightlight And it’s currently on Sale on Amazon from £55 to £36!! Definitely worth it and has a 2 year warranty.
The snot sucker ( nasal aspirator) is amazing specially on the baby because she still hasn’t mastered the ‘blow your nose’ and often gets a blocked nose at night or in the morning when she wakes it. It has 2 different size silicone suction heads, 2 gentle settings and is dishwasher safe! It’s a great gadget to have around flu & cold season! It’s also on sale on Amazon from £40 to £29! Definitely worth every penny.
Now that we know that we are all Green ticked on the thermometer and are feeling well and no Covid-19 symptons I am more confident to send the boys to school. I have done my part being safe and protected.
