Product Review: ClearPop Earache Relief + Giveaway

One of the worst things about being a parent, especially a parent to littles, is watching them while they are sick and in pain. You feel helpless when you want to be able to do anything and everything to help them. Soon after I became a parent for the first time, I experienced this helpless feeling. My oldest son has had chronic ear infections since he was 3 months old, he is now almost 4 years old.

Between 3 months old and 15 months old, he had over 10 ear infections. Every time we took him to the Doctor they prescribed him an antibiotic. By the time he was 15 months old, he had already been on several different kinds of antibiotics including amoxicillin, augmentin, cephalexin and several ear drop solutions. Finally, when he was 15 months old we opted to have tubes put in his ears.

This is a happy Weston less than an hour after his surgery eating breakfast. He was so little! 
His tubes put up a good fight, but his left tube fell out within 6 months of being put in and his right tube fell out almost 8 months ago. Since his tubes have both fallen out, he has had three new ear infections. This time experiencing them while he is a little older has been completely different. And just how life happens, if he is going to get one, I can promise you it will be a Friday night or Saturday - you know, when his pediatrician is closed. We then have to determine if we take him to an urgent care center to get a prescription, followed by a rather large medical bill - or do we hold off for a day or two and schedule a regular appointment with his pediatrician. But, then even at that, I hate paying an office visit for a 5 minute appointment when I can diagnose an ear infection at this point in my life.

I was recently contacted by ClearPop Rapid Earache Relief to receive a sample of their product and provide my honest review. I jumped at the opportunity because something like ClearPop would have been a god send for this household. We have been looking for an over the counter remedy to try for years that prevent the dreaded doctor bills but help Weston with pain relief.


ClearPop is an all-natural, prescription free, antibiotic free, earache treatment for ages 2 and up! The ingredient list is simple: isomalt, citric acid, ascorbic acid, xylitol, water, and lemon oil. ClearPop uses a lollipop-like shape to help with suction of the oral cavity and a natural lemon flavor to promote salivation to break up mucus and unblock the middle ear where the infection lives. ClearPop is medicine free, sugar free and gluten free. Kids think they are getting a lollipop treat and have no idea they are effectively draining their middle ear.


Based on clinical studies, ClearPop reduced the pain in 9 out of 10 patients while it completely eliminated the earache in 7 out of 10 patients. It's so simple to use as well! You simply have your child lay down, with the painful ear facing up, then place the flat side of the ClearPop on their tongue and have them suck vigorously until it is fully dissolved, normally 15-20 minutes.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, Weston has not had an ear infection in the last 2 months so I was unable to have hands on experience with this product. However, I am keeping it in our medicine cabinet and at the first sign of an earache Weston will be trying it out.


ClearPop has graciously offered to give one lucky reader a free sample as well! If you have a child that suffers from earaches, or if you are a frequent traveler, or if you have littles and you just want to be prepared for the middle of the night melt down when an earache surprises them - head over to my Instagram post here to enter to win. Deadline for the giveaway is Thursday, April 13th!



If you don't want to enter the giveaway, you can purchase ClearPop Rapid Earache Relief through 1100 stores nationwide, as well as, Amazon. It's normally $11.99 but Amazon currently has it on sale for $11.39 with an additional coupon for $1.50 off. I figure its worth a shot for an all natural treatment as low as $9.89 compared to a minimum Doctor's office visit of $100 plus the cost of an antibiotic.

If you have used it in the past, I would love to hear about your experience below!
