Kirkland Signature Ibuprofen 200mg Liquid Capsules: Product Review

This is going to be a short review, for a simple reason. The product I am reviewing today is the exact same as the brand name – and I mean *identical* except that it is a lot cheaper. Just the way I like my Kirkland Signature products!

The product I’ve chosen today is the Kirkland Signature Ibuprofen 200mg Liquid Capsules. I’ve bought them at my local Costco for the ridiculously low price of $8.99, plus applicable taxes.

Kirkland Signature Ibuprofen 200mg Liquid Capsules

This product is the equivalent to the Advil Liqui-Gels; 200mg of Ibuprofen in a rapidly dissolving gel capsule.

As the box tells you, it is ideal for rapid migraine relief, also of menstrual pain, but I have no direct experience of that. What I can tell you, however, is that it figures prominently in my hangover cure / avoidance scheme.

The brand-name AdvilĀ is also available at Costco, of course, but you’d really have to be married to the brand to pass up crazy savings like this. At Well.ca, a box of 72 brand-name Advil Liqui-Gels costs $16.99, or 23.6 pennies per capsule. (this is not an affiliate link)

That sure doesn’t sound like much, doesn’t it? Well, compare this to 250 capsules for $8.99 when you shop smart and at Costco. It comes down to 3.6 pennies each. That’s a saving of about 85% for a comparable quantity. Let’s say that if you wanted to buy the same volume of brand-name pills as in a Kirkland Signature box, it would cost you $59.00.

Remember, Costco still makes money selling it at $8.99.

These are the kind of savings that pay for your membership card in no time. That and Kirkland Signature diapers, but that’s a topic for another day.

If you suffer from migraines, menstrual pain, have a fever or generally don’t feel so good, you can count on Kirkland Signature’s 200mg Ibuprofen Liquid Capsules to help put you back on your feet. By the way, I’m not a doctor, and nothing here is medical advice, ok?
