An Overview On Facial Tissues

Facial tissue is an essential grocery item for most households. While there used to be just one version of these tissues, we have a multitude of choices today. It’s important to consider your specific needs before selecting a particular type.

Do you suffer from sensitive skin? If so, you’ll want to stick with unscented tissues to avoid the fragrances in scented tissues that often cause irritation. Additionally, you’ll want to go with a smoother and softer 3-ply facial tissue, like the Quilted Northern 3-Ply Facial Tissue, 4-Pack.

Do you live in a dry area? The Puffs Plus Lotion Facial Tissues, 10-Pack is infused with lotion that will keep your skin nice and moist. It’s also soothing, which is a much welcome feature for anyone suffering from a cold or sinus infection.

Are you always on the go? Commuters and travelers need facial tissues that are small in size and designed to be portable. The Kleenex Travel Size Facial Tissues, 10-Pack fits this description. A pack can easily be tossed in your car’s glove box, a purse, a backpack, a gym bag or an office desk drawer.

Are you passionate about doing all you can for the environment? Companies like Solimo, maker of the Solimo Facial Tissues, 18-Pack, responsibly source their tissue fibers and are proud to say they are SFI Certified.

DWYM Fun Fact

Did you know that disposable tissues have only been in existence in America for the last 100 years? The Kimberly-Clark company created a product to be used in gas mask air filters during World War I. Once the war was over, the company wanted to find a way to use their new invention, and thus, the facial tissue was born.

The first set of facial tissues were marketed for use in removing makeup. This continued until Kimberly-Clark found out that a large number of individuals were using the tissues to blow their nose. Today, blowing your nose is still one of the biggest uses for the tissue.

The Facial Tissue Buying Guide

  • Don’t purchase facial tissues with lotion if you plan on using the tissues to clean up spills. The lotion will actually repel other liquids instead of sopping them up.
  • During an illness, you may be tempted to grab a tissue and blow as hard as you can. WebMD warns against doing this, as it could allow germs to reach your ear. Instead, hold the tissue over your nose and use a finger to close the left nostril. Blow gently and repeat to clear the other side.
  • Save your old tissue boxes, as they can be used in a variety of crafts. You can help your children turn the tissue boxes into piggy banks, musical instruments, funny barnyard animals and adorable choo-choo trains.
  • When comparing the price of facial tissues, you’ll need to take into consideration the size of the tissues, whether the tissues are 1-ply, 2-ply or 3-ply and whether the tissues are scented or infused with lotion. The number of tissues in each pack is also important, as some brands may have just 52 tissues per box, while others offer 160 tissues a pack.
