Things I Love Thursday- Neosporin

tilt Sorry I took a little unannounced 2 day blogging hiatus. I haven’t been feeling so hot and needed my rest and beauty sleep. But I couldn’t miss Things I Love Thursday cause it is my favorite blogging day of the week! Hope you haven’t abandoned me. Hello? Anybody there?

Anyway, if you have been a mom for any length of time, your kids have most likely been bumped, bruised and scraped. With the first, you freak out and worry about life long scars. With the second you tell them to suck it up and quit crying. Then you take a picture to post on Facebook. I don’t know what you do with the third, fourth, etc., but I assume you barely notice the screaming.

So one thing that has been in our medicine cabinet since having children is a little tube of Neosporin. As part of this blog tour from Mom Central, one of the things I was asked to do was to check in my medicine cabinet to see if our Neosporin was expired. We apparently use it so much that it wasn’t. I think we buy a fresh tube quite often. Partly because my kids are band-aid seekers who need a Dora band aid for anything resembling an injury and they always want cream to go with it. We should frankly get stock in the stuff.

What I love about Neosporin, as opposed to the generic brands, is that it contains a pain relief ointment. So it heals and makes you feel a little better while it does the job. If only it came with a little flask of wine. I also was able to try out the new Neosporin To Go. It is a tiny Neosporin spray that fits right in your purse for all those accidents that happen away from home. Brilliant.

What product do you love? Something that makes your life a little easier or just more enjoyable? Enquiring minds want to know. Check out the guidelines if you are new, otherwise link away.


  1. My son has some nasty blisters right now so we are going through neosporin like crazy. That stuff does work though, they are finally healing.

  4. I took an unexpected break too. This sickness going around is no fun! But, don’t worry we’re still here! :)

    I was racking my brain what to share for Things I Love Thursday this week, but can you believe that I couldn’t come up with a thing? I guess my mind is still foggy from the flu. I’ll have something for sure to share next week. I’m determined.

  5. My kids are like that with band-aids too even if it is just a bruise :) Though they want it to fall off before being taken off lol. My 3yo’s favorite medicine is popsicles or candy lol. She says “My tummy hurts” (while making faces) and then all serious like ” I think I need some candy”.

  7. I’ve been thinking I should get some of that neosporin to go… I have a little band-aid case in my purse, so that would be a good addition! :)

  8. Ooh, sorry…I failed to read the question, “What PRODUCT do you love?”…and linked up a post about how I love soccer. Is soccer a product?! :)

  9. I did not know that Neosporin had an anesthetic in it. Good to know :D

  17. My mom’s rule was we had to have “fresh blood” in order to get neosporin and a bandaid – otherwise we would put them ALL over ourselves :)

  18. Great stuff! :)

    Ooh! Neosporin is right up there with bleach in my book. I had no idea there was a ‘to go’ option. Must get some… it can go right next to my Tide Bleach Pen.

    I hate to rain on a parade, but I read in Consumer Reports that the Neo to Go spray isn’t the same as the ointment. Here is what they say:

    “Neo spray isn’t Neosporin.
    New Neo To Go first-aid spray from the maker of Neosporin displays the brand name on its label and promises, “infection protection, anytime, anywhere.” But the $5.30 pocket-size antiseptic spray is Neosporin in name only; it does not contain the three antibiotics in the original Neosporin ointment.

    “If you want the ointment in a portable form, consider Neo To Go antibiotic, single-use packets for the same price as the spray. Tuck a tube of Neosporin ointment or a generic version in your purse or backpack. For minor scrapes, clean the affected area with soap and water before applying medication, our medical consultants say.”

    Hope that helps…
