Your skin is your body’s largest organ and accounts for around 15% of your bodyweight. Every minute your skin sheds about 30,000 dead cells and believe it or not, it has its own little zoo which provides one thousand different species of bacteria and, hold your breath, one billion individual bacteria. 1 in 20 women suffer from acne, while only 1 in 100 men have a close encounter with this condition. We all crave perfect looking skin and we all hope to find that miracle worker in a jar which not only will fade wrinkles but will give you supermodel skin. Here are two issues that come up a lot during springtime.

Purex Crystals Scentsplash {Review + Giveaway}

2015-04-06 10.54.56
Having a child that does their own clothes can be rewarding, but it can also be challenging. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the 3 loads of laundry each week that I do not have to wash, dry, fold, or put away.  However, I do miss the many bottles of laundry detergent that go to waste at the cost of my freedom! My son thinks that all the extra laundry detergent that he tosses in each load will make his clothes smell better. Sure, they come out smelling great, but at the cost of half a bottle of detergent a time! Luckily, Purex has created a product with my son in mind! Introducing Purex Crystals ScentSplash- the new way to get that long lasting freshness in every load!( without the waste!) Purex really knows how to boost the fragrance in your laundry and new Purex Crystals ScentSplash is no exception!

I love the compact size of the bottle. It makes it big enough to set on my shelf where I can use it with every load, but small enough not to take up too much room. I also love the attractive design on the bottle and the bright colors.  It’s available in 3 refreshing scents: Fresh Spring water,  Fresh lavender blossom, and Fresh mountain breeze.  All 3 scents provide an amazing laundry experience that can’t be missed!

It offers a fresh scent that is long lasting and that eliminates odors.  The scent is definitely powerful enough to knowck out any lingering odors, but not so powerful that it overwhelms you. It’s that perfect scent that makes you want to cuddle up with a freshly washed blanket on the couch. It makes you feel like you’re all alone floating down the river with the breeze in your hair.

 I love that it works great in combination with fabric softeners and that it’s great for all fabrics. I use it on my sheets, my clothing, my daughter’s clothes, etc.  I also love that the directs are really simple. It’s as simple as measure and pour. You could even skip the measuring because you can put a little or a lot – it’s up to you! (Though half a cap full is the suggested minimum) Either way your laundry will come out smelling fresh and clean!
Now my son can wash his clothes making them as fresh as he wants them and I can stop spending so much money because there’s no more wasted detergent! It’s a time saver and a money saver! I highly suggest that everyone try Purex Crystals Scent Splash! It’s simply amazing!!!
