Marketing Madness

Random Thought of the Day: Can someone at Huggies please explain why it is now necessary to put essence of cucumber and green tea in baby wipes? Okay, okay. I can kind of see the reasoning behind the cucumber. If I felt the need to slather vegetable paste on my bottom, that would be my first choice. But the green tea? Really. Do my child's buttocks need to be invigorated? Detoxified? Infused? Doesn't anything smell like plain baby powder anymore?

They're butt wipes, not finger sandwiches, people.

Mixed with what Noah leaves in his pants everyday it sounds like the makings of something really nasty. If they start messing with my pampers I am going to be pissed.

Oh my gosh you crack me up! Well... I have them exact wipes in the boys' bathroom, I thought they made them for me.... I bought them at Target just because I love the smell and perhaps a "treat" for one of my boys after taking a seat on the toilet! LOL!!!!

I have noticed over the years that there are more baby powder scent products for women then there are for actual baby products... I do not like baby powder on me but love the smell on a newborn!!!!

Thanks for the chuckle...Brad has even asked why are there Huggie wipes in the boys' bathroom and why did I buy cucumber ones?! Can't wait to hear what Brad says after reading this post!! Hahaha

I SOOOO agree! Maybe it's the organic trend? Ava has mango, papaya, oatmeal/almond, lavender, ad nauseam. They took the "baby" away from our products! I did find a bottle of Johnson's baby powder smell in a liquid. Yummy!
