Looking for the best baby care products or all-natural products for your family? Look no further than Wink Naturals!
After being diagnosed with skin cancer last year, I really started focusing on what products our family was using and how natural they really were. But I didn’t just want something that claimed to be natural, I also needed it to be truly effective.
I’ve tried many products over the past year but one I had never heard of, Wink Naturals, changed our lives in a personal way.
You see, although my cancer surgery was successful; it left its toll on my youngest daughter, who struggled with great anxiety over the fear of losing me.
No matter how I tried to comfort her fears, she could hardly leave my side. And she was getting worse by the week.
My sister-in-law gave me a product called Zen Drops and told me to try giving them to our daughter for her anxiety. I figured it couldn’t hurt, especially since I knew it was a natural product and I was comfortable with the ingredients listed.
Within a few weeks of taking the drops, our daughter was a different girl. She went from taking the drops nearly every hour to maybe once a week and now, a year later, she doesn’t need them anymore.
I was so thankful for how that little bottle helped our lives resume that I immediately started trying Wink’s other products.
If you are like me and Wink Naturals is new to you, too, let me give you my personal review of the products I’ve tried so far and you can see if this is a company worth checking out.
What is Wink Naturals?
Wink Naturals started as a company that specializes in providing safe, effective and natural products for moms and their children. It has since grown to include family items, too.
From Wink Naturals About page:
“Every product we make is manufactured in an FDA approved, GMP Certified manufacturing facility right here in the United States. We aren’t the first company to offer natural products, but we like to think we’re doing it best, and we’re pretty proud of the thousands of positive reviews and repeat customers we’ve earned in just a few short years. We back up every product we sell with our “100% Happy Guarantee”. If you’re not completely satisfied, please email us directly and we’ll make it right ( email@example.com). “
As a Mom, Why do I Choose Wink Naturals?
As you read, the very first product I tried changed our lives. I don’t say that to be dramatic, but if you have ever had a child struggle with anxiety, then you will understand the toll this takes on a family.
I wouldn’t consider myself a huge “natural mom”, but knowing that what our family uses is natural and safe has become a big deal to me. With Wink, I understand what is in every product and I can feel confident in using them.
And my kids love their products. They get just as excited for my boxes to come in, often reminding me to reorder when we are running low. They’re Wink kids for sure!

Wink Naturals Product Reviews
I will review each of the products I have tried and why I love them, but let’s start with my personal favorite:
I love Boost. So do the others in our family. Seriously, it’s a sad day in our house when we run out and our next shipment hasn’t arrived.
I am not a powdered drink person. I don’t like flavored waters or Gatorade, etc. So I had no plans to try Boost. But my sis-in-law gave me a sample, and I wanted to say I at least tried it.
She didn’t give me enough! haha We passed around the water bottle like it was the last bottle on earth, and I ordered my own canister right then.
We drink it every day. Mainly because it tastes so good. But my husband (whose stomach cannot tolerate vitamins) can drink this with no problems, and it has helped keep him hydrated on summery days working in the yard.
It has only 10 calories per serving and the sugar count is so miniscule I don’t even count it in my daily amount. It has a great source of immune-supporting vitamins, including Elderberry and Echinacea, so I feel great about my kids taking it, who really need no motivation; they LOVE it! Since taking it, my family has avoided getting sick this season.
AND, probably best of all, it has hampered my desire for soda, which has helped me lose weight!
Tip: I fill my 24oz bottle with water and 1/2 scoop of boost twice a day. I have no problem getting in my daily quota of water now. (Make sure you shake it well and it’s best when cold.)
You already know why I love this product, but I have to add my own personal experience after trying it out for the first time myself.
After my hysterectomy, my usually even-keel hormones lost their ever-loving mind and I found myself feeling like a passenger on a plane without a pilot. It’s quite scary.
So while I was in my kitchen cooking dinner the other day, trying desperately to fend off the overwhelm that insisted I needed to curl up in the corner of the room and cry hysterically, I asked my daughter to fetch me the drops. And hurry.
The instructions say that I should use two dropper fulls, but honestly, my first impression of the taste was enough to stop at only one (I’m not much of a chocolate fan). And then I went back to making dinner.
Halfway through cutting veggies, I suddenly realized I felt completely myself and in control again. I couldn’t even tell you when the transition happened or how fast it happened, but it was such a marked difference I could have cried. From joy (or relief!), not the hide-in-the-corner overwhelm from earlier.
So I’m just going to say this, Zen Melts has bumped itself up to my favorite product. Because not even my go-to calming oils could touch the hysteria that was building in me. This stuff is quite literally, a game-changer!
It’s also great to take with their Sleep Melts.
Tip: Did you know Zen Drops are safe to give to dogs? They are great for storms and fireworks when your dog might be most scared. Our Fable shakes terribly during both, but she loves the drops and they calm her enough to stop the shaking.
One of our daughters sometimes suffers from incredibly dry hands, and nothing seems to touch it. And most lotions burn when applied.
For the longest time we have been using coconut oil, but she hated the oily feeling it left behind.
Llama Lotion is the only one she has tried that she will use now. It never burns to put it on, and it soaks up nicely. Plus, it’s just thick enough to feel truly moisturized.
The Llama Lotion also comes in travel sizes, which has been perfect for my daughter as she can apply the lotion whenever she needs it.
Tip: For the times when the dryness is extra, we will top the lotion with a thin layer of Bum Balm to trap in the moisture longer.
I bought these for me since I sometimes have trouble sleeping but I am not a huge fan of mint, so even though these melts really help me relax, I don’t take them often.
My girls, on the other hand, love the taste of mint and love taking them before bed. I rarely hear anything from their room after they take the melts, which has been nice on nights when they would have otherwise chatted for hours and woken tired the next day.
They also carry Kids Sleep Drops which my sister-in-law gives to her daughter who is a bundle of energy every waking moment. And my niece loves taking the drops, too!
Tip: If you want to try just one sleep product, you can half the adult melts for kids or double the dose for adults if you get the kids melts.
I’m not a fan of anything that claims to boost energy as I have a heart arrhythmia and energy supplements tend to make it worse.
But this brand does not have this effect on me. It gives me a gentle boost of energy and clarity, which most moms need during the day. I take one mid morning when I feel myself getting tired and I can take more throughout the day as needed.
Tip: When trying them out, I recommend taking just one and work yourself up to three at a time if needed.
In the past, foaming bath washes have always left me disappointed. You normally need a few pumps to get a decent lather and I just don’t feel clean afterwards.
Wink’s Foaming Oil Bath Wash is unlike any foaming soap I’ve tried before. I love the smell; it lathers beautifully and my skin feels cleaned and moisturized afterward.
And yes, the entire family uses it, not just the kids. It’s also great for bubble baths and as a make-up remover, too!
Tip: The bottle recommends up to three pumps but I use only one, which is plenty for me. Which saves product and money in the long run.
Dementia runs in my family and so we have decided to limit our use of fluoride and changing our toothpaste was the first (and easiest) change we have made.
But trying to find a toothpaste that has an ingredient to replace the benefits of fluoride has been tough. Enter Wink.
Their toothpaste uses Kalident to naturally remineralize tooth enamel, and as a mom, it’s a big deal to know my kids are getting the best dental care without compromising their health.
Don’t forget to check out their new bamboo toothbrushes with charcoal-infused bristles!
Tip: The toothpaste is a bit tough to squeeze out but if you press the tube against the counter, it works great!
I work at my desk several hours a day, but there are times I get an incredible ache across my shoulder blades that keep me from working. The last time that pain flared up, I tried one of Wink’s Comfort Patches and was so impressed!
Within five minutes I noticed a reduction in the pain level and could continue working for the rest of the day.
My mom-in-law who suffers from incredible back pain says these patches are the only pain relief she gets, as her pain meds just don’t cut it anymore.
Tip: These are really great for after surgery care!
I have never been impressed with foam cleansers in skincare systems, but the Purity cleanser surprised me. Not only does it lather perfectly, you really feel the cleansing power. One pump is more than enough.
Both the Illuminate and Replenish moisturizers make your face feel pampered and fully hydrated, which feels especially amazing when the weather gets really hot or during dry seasons.
Don’t forget to order a set of Magic Makeup Removing Cloths!
Tip: I use about half-pump full of products during the spring and fall months when my face doesn’t need as much hydration.
What is the best way to purchase products?
You can simply order online or you can save money and shipping by creating subscriptions.
Subscriptions allow you to auto-ship anything you don’t want to risk running out of, and they offer it at a reduced price. Plus, the shipping is free!
Want to know the best part? If you have a subscription order that totals over $50, they add a free, full-size product to your order. (Make sure to select “Free Product” at checkout!)
Wink lets you know ahead of time when your next shipment is due to ship so you can swap out items or push the shipment back to whenever you need it. (Make sure you add their email to your contacts so the email doesn’t get lost in the spam filter.)
Is Wink Naturals a pyramid scheme or MLM?
Let me address the first question I had when I learned that ultimately, the best way to save money is to be a Venture Member which provides you with a 25% discount on all their products.
Yes, you can earn money from selling Wink products and you can earn from people who sign up under you.
But being a venture member has zero strings attached, meaning I don’t have to sell a certain amount of product or anything like that. Being a venture member simply means I’m free to buy my products at a great price and if any of my friends need any products and order through me, I earn a commission.
Which means I never have to sell, hold parties, or anything like that. Unless I choose to. For me, that means I simply get the best deals and earn whenever (IF ever) I share about the company. (Like I’m doing now.) 🙂
As a busy mom who enjoys saving money but hates selling, being a venture member was hands down the way to go!
Ok, this is my Wink Naturals review and as you can see, I have loved getting to know these products and introducing them to our family’s daily routines. And knowing they have natural and plant-based ingredients makes them more valuable to me, as a mom.
Wink Naturals has great products for families, but if you are a young family, their line of baby care products are great! Definitely check out their Teething Gel, Kids Multivitamin, and their adorable Binky Tethers!
But don’t just take my word for it, head on over to Wink Naturals website and check out their products for yourself!
