Staying Well + Prepared with Welly

If you're like me, you probably always keep a first aid kit or just a stash of bandages in your toiletry bag, just in case. You never know when you're going to need something on vacation and it's always nice to have things with you than to have to run out and buy a whole box of bandages when you only need one or two. Welly makes carrying a simple first aid kit in your bag easy and also cool.

You know when you buy adhesive bandages that claim to be flesh tone, but then they don't actually match anyone's actual flesh? Are you jealous of the fun bandages kids have a choice of, even though they don't actually stick to anything for more than ten minutes? Sick of buying packs of having to buy two different kinds of bandages depending on if you need them to be waterproof or not? Welly addresses all these problems. 

First of all, the bandages come in awesome colors, so it doesn't matter what color you skin is. They don't have cartoons on them, but isn't a blue or orange bandage better than a weird peach one? If it's going to stand out anyway, it might as well look neat. Welly bandages stick really well, so you're not going to go through 17 of them by lunch time tomorrow or find one circling the drain after your shower. 

I did the science for you. While in New Orleans, my shoes gave me a terrible blister on the back of my one foot. I slapped a Welly bandage on it, and even though my sandals rubbed that spot all day while I was walking around, it stayed put for two full days until I changed it. Even then, that was just personal preference. It hadn't moved, come un-sticky, or frayed in that time. 

The Quick Fix Kit is an ideal travel companion. It comes in a metal tin, so you won't have sad crumpled up bandages when you finally need them. Inside you'll find 3 packets of hand sanitizer (for when you can't get anywhere with soap and water), 3 packets of triple antibiotic cream (to keep nasty cuts and scrapes from getting infected and help them heal faster), and 18 bandages (9 large: 3/4" x 3" and 9 small: 5/8" x 2 1/4") in 3 different colors. This one I picked up the Travel Goods Show has orange, blue, and forest green. 

You can buy kits and refill packs that come in other colors or patterns. I've seen one with polka dots, stripes, and geometric shapes. They even have children's patterns, like unicorns. While they aren't quite Dora the Explorer, they will last much longer and protect their wounds better, while still being fun and whimsical. If you don't want to be super obvious, they do have transparent bandages. 

Got a larger travel party? Get the Human Repair Kit for your bag. It's twice as big and also includes anti-itch cream for bug bites, rashes and other annoying things. Got a ton of bandages? Pick up the Superhero Supplies tin, which includes 9 Hand Sanitizer, 9 Triple Antibiotic Ointment, 9 1% Hydrocortisone Cream, and 9 Burn Gel packets or the Travel Medicine Kit with 8 motion sickness tablets, 16 pain relief tablets, 12 anti-diarrheal tabs, 12 anti-gas tabs, and 8 sleep aid tabs.  There's nothing you won't be prepared for. 

Welly products can be found at Target, and you'll be surprised by how many different kinds of products they sell. You may have seen their bright, pretty packaging already and wondered about them. They appear to be expensive, but if you think about how much you use bandages and the high quality of Welly compared to some others, you'll realize that the price is definitely worth it, since you won't go through as many for each wound.

If you've got a graduate that's planning to travel or move out, get them started with something they'll always forget to buy for their toiletry bag or new apartment. Add one of these Quick Fix Kits to a new toiletry bag you're giving as a gift Mother's Day, Father's Day, a birthday or graduation. They may be picky about the other items they fill it with, but everyone needs bandages at some point, and these are chic, fun, and über useful.
