Dry Idea-Advanced Dry Review and Giveaway

    Choosing the perfect antiperspirant and deodorant is very important in our home because we all have different needs when it comes to skin sensitivities and the level of odor protection that we require.  My husband and my son generally require products that don't irritate skin and have heavy odor blockers.  I, on the other hand, don't generally require very heavy odor protection but I do have very sensitive skin that reacts poorly to heavy perfumes and chemicals.     For the purpose of this review, we had the opportunity to try out Dry Idea-Advanced Dry Roll-on.  It is available in in Unscented, Powder Fresh, and Cotton Dry scents and claims to have 24 hour protection in a fast drying MicroCotton Formula.  Additionally, it is hypo-allergenic and contains Vitamin E.  We chose to review the Powder Fresh Formula.     Although we tried the roll-on, I immediately liked that it did not feel wet and sticky under my arms.  This is one of the reasons why I tend to shy away from roll-ons … [Read more...]

Purex UltraPacks Liquid Laundry Detergent Review and Giveaway

          Lately, I have been teaching my sons the ins and outs of doing laundry.  It's not that I expect them to do their own laundry at ages 5 and 8 but I do hope to raise independent men who can take care of themselves.  I allow them to help me sort the clothes and even put laundry detergent and softener into the wash.      Over time, my 8 year old has gotten quite good at filling up the cap of detergent but I have not allowed my little one to help with that yet due to fear of him spilling it.  Thanks to Purex, I don't have to worry about that anymore because they have figured out a way to simplify laundry by doing away with the mess, the spills, and the heavy jugs.      In February, 2012, Purex will be launching new UltraPacks detergent.  You might wonder what makes this detergent different from other detergents that you have tried out in the past...  New Purex UltraPacks are convenient pre-dosed liquid detergent packs that make doing laundry easier than ever.  You … [Read more...]
