Cool Touch.

Fact: Brian treats me better than I treat myself.

When I was sick last week, I asked him to bring home more facial tissues.  Typically, if I was shopping for myself, I’d purchase whichever tissues were on sale.

They’re all the same, right?

But the tissues that Brian brought home?  The first one that I used felt cold on my nose.  Cold…  but niiiiiiiice.

They must be cold because they were just outside in the car.  So soft!  Sure beats the box of tissues I just finished and the paper towels I’ve been carrying around.

Granted, while Viva paper towels are super soft for paper towels, the fact that I was resorting to rubbing vaseline on my sad, raw nose should have told me something.

Okay, but back to the Kleenex that Brian brought home.

The next one that I used?  Soft and cold.  And the next?  Soft and cold.  And the next day?  Still soft.  Still cold.


I looked at the box again.  Cool Touch.


I don’t know how they did it, but – wow! – every single tissue is so soothing because they all feel like they’ve been chilled!  So nice!  Did you know such things existed?!

Tissue snob?  Yeah.  I think that just happened.

    I knew they had one with Vicks in it at one time. I usually get the ones with the lotion in it. Had to stop using them to clean my glasses though. :p

    I am a total tissue snob. (Along with paper towels and definitly toliet paper)I love these tissues. I am a Puffs-only, and when I have a cold I love the ones with Vicks in them (hard to find, but I still get them). I was skeptical about these because they are Kleenex brand, and I assumed that they were the ones with lotion in them (yuck), but I was wrong. These are actually the best for the raw, sore nose!

    I did not know. I’ll have to try them next time we have a sore nose in the house.

    Tissue snob — love it!! It’s kinda sorta like a toilet paper snob but an attribute I would be more likely to admit in public! ;o)

    For 2 straight months Rose and I used these. I made special trips to the store just to get them when all we had left were the non-cool ones. I absolutely love them when your nose starts to get tender.

    Whole conversation about tissues reminded me of an old TV series called “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman”. Hope someone is old enough to have seen and share this smile with me.

    You can never go back now. But I am a tissue snob they gave to be soft. Wilk try these next time we need tissues.
