Tender Corp Review and Giveaway



As summer is winding down and coming to a close, our family is outdoors more than ever enjoying the nice cool fall weather! But, just because the weather is changing doesn’t mean the dangers of bugs, bumps, bruises and scrapes are gone along with the hot weather, and to me it seems this is the time of the year that all the stuff I just mentioned gets worse! I don’t know if it’s because we spend more time outdoors or what but I always try to keep products around that will help us protect us and to care for us after we get hurt or bit by bugs, so while surfing through websites one day I stumbled upon Tender Corp and I was immediately intrigued by the products they had to offer and I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to review a few of their proudcts.

About Tender Corp (Taken From Website):

Our History Tender Corporation has firmly established itself as the maker of effective solutions for nature's problems. New product development and acquisitions have reinforced that position in recent years. A brief history from the early days of the company illustrates how the role was established right from the start.

The early 1970's marked retirement for Kenneth Grout. He was headed for New Hampshire's White Mountains, to discover the joys of fresh air, good fishing and hard-earned relaxation. But there was an element which Ken's carefully laid plans had overlooked- an irrefutable ingredient distracting every part of the vision. It was in the garden, in the woods, around the ponds and on the mountaintops. It was the merciless black fly. You cannot quite imagine how annoying and painful this bug is, unless you've been to northern New England in late spring. This tiny pest aggravated Ken to the point of canceling retirement and launching a full-time counterattack.

The basic solution to bites and stings, from black flies and other insects, came relatively easily. Ammonia hydroxide was a known home remedy for bug bite itch, dating back to the days of pharaohs. Ken focused on combining it in an effective formula. He searched for a way to package the solution for convenient use, especially for the many times a household ammonia bottle was not handy or easy to carry.

By 1975, under the name of Tender Corporation, Ken and his son Ted produced their first 50,000 units of insect bite relief, AfterBite®. The pen-like, applicator-tipped, plastic tube was an instant hit. The success of AfterBite® preceded the subsequent launches of Ben's®, Natrapel® 8 hour, Easy Care®, AfterSting® and AfterBurn®.

Our Thoughts:

I was sent several products to review and with the cooling of the weather it didn’t take us long to need some of the products we were sent.

The first product we tried out was the AfterBite Outdoor Combo Pack that includes a tube of AfterBite Outdoor for adults and a tube of the AfterBite Kids, and with the mosquito out in full force in the evening it didn’t take but a night or so to realize that we were going to have to use this on both Chad and I but “Bug” as well. We really like the AfterBite Outdoor for adults, it works fast to stop the itching and it seems to speed the healing process a bit. Chad has used this more than I have since he seems to constantly get into ticks and chiggers and he now swears by this ointment! We also had to use the AfterBite Kids on “Bug” after a couple of mosquito bites on his legs and it did not seem to burn or irritate him in any way he actually told us that his leg quit itching and felt better!

The next product we got to sample was one we are using quite regularly now and that is the Natrapel 8 Hour Deet-Free Repellent. We have started doing quite a bit of fishing in the evenings since the weather has started to cool down and we have completely replaced our old incest repellents with the Natrapel 8 Hour repellent, and could not be happier with it! Not only does this repellent work wonders for the whole length of time we are out in the boat or just lounging outside, and best of all it’s Deet-Free and that makes me feel good about using it on “Bug”!

We were also sent a bottle of Healthifeet to review and this was one of the products I was most excited to try. I have always as long as I can remember had cold feet…..all the time even during the hot summer months my feet stayed cold and I really hate it. So when I pulled this out of the box I thought there may be hope in warming my feet up and not having to suffer from cold feet forever. Not only has this help tremendously to relive my cold feet and the discomfort that comes along with cold feet but it has also softened them and help relieve the scratchy dry patches on my heels! I will never be without a bottle of Healthifeet in my medicine cabinet again!

The last product and probably the most important product we were sent was the Easy Care Soft-Sided First Aid Kit and let me just start by saying this kit has everything you could possibly need to treat minor cuts, burns, bruises and scrapes at home. Now, I’ve had a lot of first aid kits in my life and I will admit that this is the best first aid kit I have ever owned! I’m loving that this kit is compact and easy to take with us to the park or in the car, we have had to use some of the Band-Aids for all of us and Chad has used the burn cream out of the kit and he has seemed pretty happy with the results. I’m also loving the tweezers that come with this kit and I’ve used them a couple of times to extract splinters out of “Bugs” feet and he didn’t even seem to mind when I used the tweezers in this kit vs. my normal tweezers.

Bottom Line:

We are all very pleased with every one of the products we were sent to review and have now made each of them a permanent place in our medicine cabinet. I have yet to find a bug bite medication that has worked both as fast and as well as the AfterBite and the fact that they have made one especially for kids is wonderful. We also could not ask for a better insect repellant that the one we were sent and I’m loving the Healthifeet and the way it leaves my feet both warm and silky smooth! As I stated above I’ve never owned a better first aid kit and I plan on keeping all of these products at hand for a long time to come.

I seriously recommend all of these products to anybody who enjoys the outdoors and has the occasional bug bite, cold feet or needs a handy first aid kit! You should really check out these products and consider giving them a special place in your medicine cabinet.
