Today (February 15th, 2021) is an exciting day for a multitude of reasons. First off, today I get the keys to my new apartment. Secondly, I am proud to be partnering with Braun and Vicks to chat about the high and lows of cold and flu season.
With health top of mind for everyone this past year, we’re focused on being more in tune with our health and wellness and investing in the tools needed to fight illness. Now more than ever, it’s important to have the right tools to alert us to, and fight cold and flu symptoms, and to be able to distinguish something manageable vs. something more serious.
I was so excited when the team at Braun and Vicks reached out to me to work on this partnership plus provide me with the Braun ThermoScan® 7 Thermometer and Vicks® FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier for my new apartment. In-suite laundry plus two tools to stay on top of my health? What a win!
Braun ThermoScan®️ 7 Thermometer
Did you know that the definition of fever changes with age? Lucky for you, with the Braun ThermoScan® 7 Thermometer you won’t have to know exactly what the recommended temps are. With Braun’s Age Precision™ Technology you’ll have an accurate temperature reading – and we’re all getting used to having our temperature checked often. I love how intuitive the design is and the thermometer has an easy to read and understand LED screen with a backlight display – it also has a colour-coded fever indicator, green means your temperature is normal, yellow means fever and red means high fever, so as long as it’s green you know you’re good to go! It’s as simple as turning it on, setting the age and a click of button. Plus, the tip is pre-warmed (so it’s extra comfortable!) and there are disposable lens filters available for purchase for sanitary purposes.
Available at London Drugs for $89.99. It comes with 21 filters. You can also purchase an additional 40 lens filters for $15.99
Vicks® FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier
Am I the only one that now wakes up in the winter with a sore throat and worries that I have COVID? Now I thankfully have a Vicks® FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier to add some much-needed moisture back into the air. Not only does it help combat sore throats, but it fights dry skin and nosebleeds. Plus, studies have shown that keeping indoor air at a Relative Humidity level of 40-60% can help reduce the survival of flu and certain viruses on surfaces and in the air at home, compared to lower humidity levels. I had a humidifier when I was a kid and this one is a major upgrade from the one I had in the 90’s. It has a dial so you can control how intense the mist is and it’s quiet enough to be used while you sleep. Another perk is that it’s filter free, so no additional replacement parts are required to purchase, however, you can buy Vicks® VapoPads to add a bit of scent to your mist. There are two scents available, menthol and a rosemary and lavender blend.
Available at London Drugs for $64.99. Vicks® VapoPads are $18.99 for a 10 pack.
