I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.
This gem of a product arrived the day before I began prepping for my colonoscopy. Talk about perfect timing!!! I seriously didn’t think going to the bathroom could get much better since my husband installed my bidet, but it has! And unlike my bidet, I can take Fresh Assist with me and use anywhere.
What is Fresh Assist? It is an eco-friendly, cleansing, soothing, non-irritating product that you spray on your toilet paper after going number 2. With Fresh Assist I am able to enjoy a pleasant wiping experience anytime I poo, no matter where I am. Fresh Assist, unlike moist wipes, will not clog plumbing or septic systems. This product is fabulous for folks suffering from Crohn’s disease, Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Hemorrhoids, Fecal Incontinence and other similar issues.
As someone who is quite sensitive to scents, I was impressed with this product. The aroma was not overpowering. The best part was not experiencing a rash of any sort from it either. Like I said, this product arrived the day before I began my colonoscopy prep and I was prepared to put it to the test. I am pleased to report that after 12 hours of flushing; I never experienced a negative reaction nor was my bum sore after all that wiping. The scent I received was lavender. In a way it also served as an air freshener when sprayed onto my toilet paper. My bathroom smelled pretty good considering how much pooping was going on that night. The joke at my house that night was that I would not only have the cleanest colon at the hospital, but the best smelling one too!!! Since then I have brought and used Fresh Assist at Disneyland too. While guests in the other stalls didn’t get to enjoy the experience of a clean wipe, they all benefited from the lavender scent.
What I love most about this product is that I can take it anywhere. No longer having to worry about clogging up someone’s plumbing or septic system with wet wipes also reduces my stress when diarrhea strikes. The spray bottle, unlike flushable wipes takes up little room in my purse or backpack making it more convenient to take with me. Fresh Assist is also a cost effective alternative to wipes, it only takes a few sprays to enjoy a clean wipe. Each bottle is $6.99 or save money by purchasing a two-pack for $12.79.
Fresh Assist is for everyone, including kids. Moistening their toilet tissue with it helps little ones achieve a cleaner wipe. You don’t have to suffer from diarrhea to appreciate this product. Fresh Assist makes going number two more pleasant, no matter whom you are or where you’re at. Fresh Assist has become one of my favorite products.
Wishing you and your bum a clean and aromatic wipe!
