Dial Coconut Water Body Wash

Have I ever told you that I love body wash?  I LOVE body wash!  Really, I do!  I don't believe I've used soap for a shower by choice since the day I discovered body wash many eons ago.  In college, one of my favorite stores was Bath & Body Works.  I loved them then.  I try to love them now, but they've changed and it's just not the same.  So, I must seek my body wash joy elsewhere.
Imagine my delight when I saw an email come in from the Purex Insiders announcing that I could sign up to try their new coconut body wash.  I signed up immediately and got extremely excited to find the box on my doorstep.  I'm pretty sure the box was calling my name and begging me to take a shower so I could try it (what?  you weren't coulda happened).
So, I tried the body wash after reading all the good things it was supposed to do.  It said it would make my skin feel soft...yep, that was a true statement.  It said that it would rinse off well and not leave a lot of residue...pretty sure that's a big yes!  I don't remember all the other things it was supposed to do, but overall it did a great job.  My skin felt soft and smooth.  Now, I just need it to be available in a huge array of scents starting with peach!

Legal Mumbo Jumbo:  I received a bottle of Dial Coconut Body Wash for FREE in exchange for an honest review of the product.  All opinions stated here are my own.

Purex with Crystals Review

This is my latest Purex product to take for a test drive at my house.  As a Purex Insider member, they've been keeping me busy lately trying out new products.  Stay tuned for a review of Dial's new coconut water body wash and later, Dial's new kids body wash/shampoo!
So, in case you didn't know, my usual detergent is Tide with Bleach (although for now I've switched to Purex with Oxi) and I use Snuggle fabric softener.  I love the way my clothes look and smell with my usual products!  However, I am always happy to try new products and see if they work as well or maybe better.
I put Purex with Crystals to the test this past weekend.  We were behind in doing laundry (I know you're shocked, but it's okay - everyone gets behind once in a while and if they don't, well, I don't want to know about it).  The first load I tried with the Purex w/ Crystals was a load of white clothes (undershirts, socks, unmentionables, etc.).  Everything came out super clean, no dull looking undershirts or socks and the biggest thing - NO STATIC CLING!!!  None! Zip! Zero!  Plus, it all smelled great, too!
The second load was a load of jeans and dark shirts.  Once again, the results were fabulous!  Soft, great smelling clothes and no static cling (again).  The only funny thing that happened was my husband saw me put the detergent in with the load of laundry and then start to close the lid and wondered why I wasn't putting in any fabric softener!
So, I liked the Purex with Crystals.  I'm not sure it would be the detergent I would switch to from my normal detergent, but I know it would be great to have my husband or son use this when they do laundry because fabric softener is usually what they forget!  Overall, this does the job well and smells great!

Now for the legal mumbo jumbo:
I received a bottle of Purex with Crystals from Purex for the sole purpose of trying out their product and then writing an honest review.  All opinions stated here are my own and if you want to form your own opinion of Purex with Crystals - go to the store and get it - it's a great product and priced affordably!

A New Homeschooling Review: Coming Soon!

We are trying a new program with our homeschool this month!  We have a one month trial from Time 4 Learning that we'll be "test driving".  I have some official words that I need to post from Time 4 Learning : I've been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. My opinion will be entirely my own, so be sure to come back and read about my experience. Time4Learning can be used as a homeschool curriculum, for afterschool enrichment and for summer skill sharpening. Find out how to write your own curriculum review for Time4Learning.
So that's the deal. We get to try this curriculum for one month for FREE!  We'll let you know how it goes and what our thoughts are after we've used the program.  I have high hopes!
