I {Heart} Cottonelle and My New Best Friend is British

As you know, I co-hosted SocialLuxe Lounge last week in Chicago. When Cottonelle approached us wanting to be the title sponsor for this year’s event, we jumped at the chance! I’ve used Cottonelle forever and was happy to work with a brand that I already knew and loved!

Cottonelle was a fabulous title sponsor. Their space at the party was ADORABLE. Cherry Healey is the brand ambassador for Cottonelle. Since she is British, they went with a British theme and it couldn’t have been more cute and fun! Everyone was ready to “talk bums” at the party!

Cherry was even more adorable than the cute signs and toilet paper flowers. We chatted for a while and it felt like we’d known each other for years. Whether she likes it or not, I am her new American BFF.

Cottonelle has launched a “Let’s talk about your bum” campaign to inform everyone about the Cottonelle Care Routine, which includes using both toilet paper and flushable wipes. This is a food blog, so we don’t need to go into much detail, but we can say this: following the Cottonelle Care Routine is just better! While we were stuffing the swag bags the day before the party, one of my good blogging friends Dawn was telling us she had never followed the “care routine” until Cottonelle sent her samples in the mail. As she tossed swag into the bags she exclaimed with delight, “I loved it!”

Side note: last time we bought wipes, Nate grabbed the Kirkland brand instead of Cottonelle. The Kirkland wipes are terrible. For real. I hate them. Cottonelle is WAY better and I will never cheat on them again!

Big thanks to Cottonelleย for being our title sponsor and making the party wonderful!

Keep calm and wipe on! ๐Ÿ˜‰

This post was sponsored by Cottonelle but all opinions are most decidedly my own!

    Oh my gosh. Kirkland wipes were on coupon a couple months ago and I tried them for the first time. I am in 100 percent agreeance — SO horrible. I donated the remainer of my box to a local shelter and immediately went back to Cottonelle! Those KS wipes definitely are Costco’s biggest fail I’ve ever encountered.

      I keep thinking I need to use up those dumb kirkland wipes, but donating them to a shelter is a great idea. cottonelle is the best!

    Yes, I too heart Cottonelle over other brands. The kirkland ones tear in pieces every time they are pulled out. Ugh. Who wants to wipe half a**!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I found your blog because I’d been wondering who is their spokesperson on their commercials (she does comes across as so adorable).

    It’s hard to gather from their TV ads that they’re pushing a supposedly flushable wipe. But I wish they’d stop calling their moist wipes flushable. Wet wipes are great – but they’re terrible for septic systems.

    The UK just had to tackle Fatberg – a 15-ton clog caused by supposedly flushable wipes.
