Purex Crystals Aromatherapy Review

Laundry is a chore that is never ending in our household. When I do laundry I like to make sure not only that the clothes are clean but they actually smell good too. Thanks to Purex for always thinking of the next best thing and coming out with new Purex Crystals Aromatherapy in wash scent booster. 

I received a bottle of the Purex Crystals Aromatherapy in Well Being which is described as "brightens any mood with the happy fragrance of fresh blossoms."  This scent is amazing and it really did leave my laundry smelling great. My favorite was later climbing into bed after changing the freshly laundered linens. 

The Purex Crystals are easy to use and will help eliminate laundry odors. The cap on the bottle is a nice measuring tool to pour the desired amount depending on your load size. After loading the clothes into the washing machine just pour a cap full onto the clothes and let the crystals do the work. 

I liked this scent so much that I decided to add some of the Purex Crystals Aromatherapy into a few small organza bags. I tied them shut and placed them in different areas of our home like under the beds and under the sofa,  in a vase and in the closet. It can be used anywhere and it helped keep not only our clothes smelling good but also our home!

Purex Crystals Aromatherapy comes in three different scents: Well Being, Energy, and Serenity. I will be trying the other scents as well!

Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Review & Giveaway

Finding the right body wash is important to me because it's my "me time" and a few minutes to have to myself. As a working mother to two toddlers I don't get much free time so I look forward to some quietness while taking a shower. :)

I was so happy to get to try the new Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash because I'm always looking to try new scents and a body wash I might like better than the current one I use.

"Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango is the first of it's kind to contain coconut water and refreshing mango for clean, healthy and hydrated skin. Let the fresh hints of green coconut and tropical mango whisk your mind away to distant island shores without ever leaving the shower."


One of the main things I look for in a body wash is one that lathers well. I don't want to use the entire bottle to get a lather but the Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Review is great! I only used a couple drops and it was a good amount to get a nice lather and enough to wash my entire body.

What's even better is how heavenly and relaxing the scent is and for just a few minutes I can close my eyes and imagine being in some tropical island with a Mai Tai in one hand.. ;)

Another thing I liked is the bottle being clear which lets me know when I'm running low and need to get a new bottle.

So, now that I have told you a bit about the new Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango how about a little giveaway? Just enter on the rafflecopter below for your chance to win a coupon for one free full Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash!

Cottonelle Clean & Fresh

Through Crowdtap, I was chosen to participate in the Cottonelle Clean Crew Sample And Share.

I received for myself:
  • Cottonelle Clean Care 4 pack Toilet Paper
  • Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths Dispenser
  • Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Portable Pack
  • $1.00 Coupon on Any One Cottonelle Flushable Wipes Dispenser or Refill
For my friends:
  • (2) Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Portable Packs
  • (2) $1.00 Coupons on Any One Cottonelle Flushable Wipes Dispenser or Refill

I liked the Cottonelle Clean Care toilet paper because it's very soft on your bum but more importantly it's also strong enough to get the job done. Lets face it nobody wants a rough toilet paper to wipe down there.  #LetsTalkBums

The sleek design of the Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes Dispenser is easy to add to any bathroom decor without drawing in more attention than necessary.  It dispenses one cloth at a time and has a fresh clean scent. The wipes are stretchy and strong and after using these during your trip to the bathroom you're sure to be left feeling clean and confident afterwards.


I love the Cottonelle Portable Packs because it's easy to carry with you anywhere you go and with me being a mother of two little ones accidents are always unexpected. These are not only great for the bathroom but they are great to wipe your hands and face when needed. On a recent trip to the beach my daughters were covered in sand and the Cottonelle Portable Packs came in handy helping me clean up my daughters some before our long drive home! The portable packs are a must have in any handbag and truly are a lifesaver!

Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets Review

Laundry for me is not my favorite chore but leave it to Purex to come out with something new and amazing making me eager to do laundry!

Before even opening up the box of Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets I could smell how amazing it was. I have 2 toddlers who are messy and spill a lot which means their laundry hamper gets filled up pretty quickly so I knew a laundry day would here soon. I usually add 4-5 dryers sheets but since Purex Crystals Dryer sheets have 3 times more fragrance in each sheet I only needed two. Even when I took the clothes out of the dryer to fold I could still smell the lavender blossom.

Don't think you can only you use Purex Crystal Dryer Sheets for your laundry because it really can be used anywhere you like to keep smelling fresh. A few ideas would be in your drawers, the bottom of the garbage bins, inside those smelly sneakers, under the bed, etc.

  • Reduce static cling
  • Provide 30 days of long lasting freshness
  • Repels pet hair and lint
There are two scents available which are Fresh Spring Water & Lavender Blossom. You can read more about them HERE

These Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets are my new favorite and what I will continue to use in my home!

Purex No Sort for Colors

Laundry for me is one of my least favorite chores. It's a long process which begins with sorting the colors from the whites and something I am guilty of skipping almost always! Now, thanks to Purex I won't have to feel bad when I skip this step. 

Purex No Sort for Colors has a  Anti Color Transfer Technology that traps loose dyes in the wash not allowing it to settle into other fabrics.

I tried the Purex No Sort laundry detergent first on my daughters clothes. As you can see in the photos there is red, pink and white all together in this load. Now, time to see if this detergent claims to do as it says.

When the clothes were finished washing I was pleased to see that the red pants did not bleed into the white shirt leaving me with a load of cotton candy pink colored clothes. The clothes also smelled wonderful and as much as I dislike doing laundry I love the smell of clean clothes.  

I like that this saves me a little time and will continue to use this Purex No Sort for Colors laundry detergent. 

Want a chance at trying a bottle of Purex No Sort for Colors laundry detergent? Well, you're in luck because I have three coupons to give to three lucky readers! Also, be sure to enter for your chance to win $1,000 and a years supply of Purex No Sort for Colors laundry detergent. ENTER HERE

Viva Vantage #BreakUp4Better

Through Crowdtap I was chosen for a sampling opportunity and got to try Viva Vantage paper towels. I received 4 rolls - one for myself and three to share with family and friends.

I will admit that I usually buy whatever is on sale and most of the time it's either Bounty Basic or Sparkle paper towels. With two little ones I am constantly cleaning up messes and spills. My daughter accidentally spilled her chocolate milk so I quickly put Viva Vantage to the test.


As you can see the Viva Vantage instantly absorbed the chocolate milk after I set it down. With a few wipes and Voila it was clean and the paper towel still had a lot of use still left to it. When using my regular paper towels I would have used a lot more sheets to have gotten this same result.

My Thoughts:

These Viva Vantage paper towels are great! It combines stretch, strength and scrubbing power to them that other paper towels don't have. I also like that with these Viva Vantage paper towels I am able to choose the size I need depending on the mess.

After trying Viva Vantage I realize that it's better to spend a bit more and get a paper towel that will save me in the long run. I'm now #TeamVivaVantage

Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask #powerofplants

A few weeks ago Influenster sent me this Boots Botanic Ionic Clay Mask in my JAdore VoxBox complimentary for me to review.

I was a little hesitant to try it at first because my face is super sensitive but I knew I had to in order to give my honest feedback and review.

I liked how quickly the mask dried after applying allowing me 10 minutes to sit in silence and relax. It was also very easy to wash off when the time was up.

I really liked this Boots Botanic clay mask and was very pleased with the results. My face looks brighter, clearer and is a lot softer after using it. It was even gentle enough for my sensitive skin and I had no issue with break outs or redness! 

A few tips that I have when using this clay mask:

  • Tie your hair up and secure any loose strands with a bobby pin or clip. This will help when applying the mask so it doesn't get mixed into your hair.
  • Shake the clay mask for about 10 seconds before applying. It will help mix it all up and you'll get a good consistency to work with. If you don't it will be runny when you pour it into your hands and it will cause a big mess.. I learned that the first time!
I'm very pleased with this clay mask and happy to have found a new product that I can trust. Thank you Influenster and Boots USA.

Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes

Recently I was selected for the J'Adore VoxBox from Influenster which I wrote about HERE. In the box was a set of Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes.

I was waiting for a special night to use these but couldn't wait any longer so I decided to test these out today. Once opening the package I read the instructions which were pretty simple and I was surprised at how easy the lashes were to apply because I thought I'd have a hard time.

I couldn't believe the difference in how my eyes looked after applying the Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes. Another thing I like is how light the lashes are. At first of course I could feel them but after a little while I forgot I had them on. 

I love these Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes and it definitely gave my eyes a pop.

Dial Deep Cleansing Moisturizing Hand Soap Review & Giveaway

New Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap was created by the Dial Brand to bring luxury to your hand washing experience. These premium soaps feature vibrant scents with a gentle micro-scrubber formula to help smooth and moisturize your skin. The sleek new bottle designs are rich with colors allowing you to display throughout your home.

There are three vibrant scents to choose from

  • Yellow Raspberry & Black Sugar
  • Water Blossoms
  • Coconut Lime Verbena
I am a mommy with two toddlers so hand washing and preventing the spread of germs is a big deal in our home. Having soft hands has always been something important to me but constantly washing my hands causes them to be more dry.

I tried the Water Blossoms first which was a crisp floral scent inspired by aquatic botanicals. This soap was my favorite scent because truly it smelled amazing. As I washed my hands I couldn't help but to keep taking a few sniffs while closing my eyes imagining I was off somewhere in paradise. I decided to keep this one in my kitchen since this is where I wash my hands most.

Next, I tried the Yellow Raspberry & Black Sugar which has a tart and rich sweetness scent. This soap had a bit stronger scent but I still liked it.

I think both of these scents are amazing and I really like the micro beads because I felt like it was gently washing all the dirt away. Who knew hand washing could feel like a luxury? I also liked that these soaps lather so good. I only pumped once each time when washing my hands and that was more than enough.

I really want to try the Coconut Lime Verbena next!!

Now comes the fun part.. Three lucky readers will each win ONE coupon for a FREE Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap. Just enter on the rafflecopter below.

Influenster J'Adore VoxBox

Influenster has once again picked me to get a voxbox and this time it's the J'Adore VoxBox which is filled with a bunch of goodies as you can see below!! 

Upon opening the box I see a package of Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes which I have been wanting to try for a little while now. I think on a upcoming date night with my husband this week I will give these a try!

One of my hair concerns with all the humidity where I live is frizz so I was super excited when I saw a bottle of John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray. I can't wait to try this and see if it really works!

I love drinking tea and I usually have a cup each night before bed but it's always the black tea. These Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas sound amazing. Seriously, how can you go wrong with Créme Caramel?

I don't know the last time I used a face mask but after reading the back of bottle from The Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask I''m looking forward to seeing a clearer, softer and smoother skin.

I will be honest here and say I was secretly most happy about receiving the Hershey's Kisses and a whole entire family bag!!! These have always been a big hit in our home so I already know how much we'll enjoy them!

Lastly, I think it was pretty awesome that Influenster didn't forget about the men in our lives when they included the Vaseline Men Spray Lotion. I have seen the commercial of the young woman quickly spraying seconds before getting dressed and have wanted to try this.. Lucky for my husband he will get to try it before I do!

So, there you have it. These are the products I will be testing out in the next few days. I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts on each of these.
