Tucks Medicated Pads are crap!

February 22nd, 2008 25 comments

I don’t even know where to begin on this one. 

Tucks Medicated Pads are so many kinds of wrong I become enraged just thinking about it!
Tucks
 
So, I’ll make a list. Here goes:

  1. It’s 50% Witch Hazel –Which I can buy in any store for next to nothing.
  2.  

  3. Most of the rest of the product is glycerin (for that slick feeling that never seems to go away) and alcohol (again, another product I can buy cheaply).
  4.  

  5. Tucks contains diazolidinyl urea (yuck!) — a preservative that releases formaldehyde! of all things!
  6.  

  7. The makers of Tucks, Pfizer, can’t decide if they their product provides hemorrhoidal or vaginal care (both are on the box) and I’m more than a little uncomfortable with that the confusion on this matter.
  8.  

  9. The box uses the term moist in reference to the pads and I hate the word ‘moist.’
  10.  

  11.  The pads themselves are, well, too moist (I really hate that word!). Each little pad drips like a leaky faucet.
  12.  

  13.  Pads come out of the container in clumps, not one at a time, which makes these babies prone to waste. Way to go green Pfizer!
  14.  

  15. Tucks pads are small and round and don’t make sense for tough jobs — if you know what I mean.
  16.  

  17. The smallness of the pads make them prone to finger slippage, which is, of course, never pretty.
  18.  

  19. The container itself is completely and utterly a design blunder by requiring two hands to open — one to unscrew the top and the other to hold the container. I don’t know about you, but I’ve already got a hand in use when I’m getting through sitting on the crapper.

 

Enough said.
