Summer Essentials for Outdoor Play {Giveaway}

kidsplaying

I have two busy little boys, they are very active and on the go from the moment they wake up until they go to bed at night. It is rare to see my boys sitting down somewhere for more than a minute.

During the summer we spend most of our time outdoors; whether at the park, the beach or our backyard they are both usually running around everywhere. Running lots means they also trip and fall a lot, every week there are new scrapes, usually when they fall on cement, ouch!

At home I have tried telling them to run on the grass only but they always end up running around the house on the cemented area instead, boys! Knowing what happens when they fall I am now prepared and carry some products from the Nexcare Sensitive Skin Line with me.

The Nexcare™ Sensitive Skin Adhesive Pads are ideal for protecting wounds such as cuts, minor burns and abrasions. They are great for children’s sensitive skin and they are easy to remove, with minimal hair pulling. They are also hypoallergenic and latex free!

The Nexcare™ Sensitive Skin Tape is also a good product for protecting scrapes and minor wounds. This tape tears easily so you don’t need to carry scissors around and it offers paper blend backing for breathability. Safe to use on infants and very sensitive skin as well. I like that it is water resistant so it can be worn while showering or when going to a pool/the beach.

The new line of Nexcare™ Sensitive products is available online HERE, and in stores at your local Shoppers Drug Mart, Sobey’s, Jean Coutu, Overwaitea, London Drugs and Rexall. You can also get them and pack them up in your bag or leave them in the car and be prepared as well.

For more information on Nexcare products visit their website HERE.

THE GIVEAWAY

Win it: One very lucky Canadian reader will receive a Nexcare Sensitive Skin Product Summer Play kit including the The Nexcare™ Sensitive Skin Adhesive Pads  and The Nexcare™ Sensitive Skin Tape. Enter to WIN below via Rafflecopter. Good Luck!
