Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

My daughter is such a girly girl.  The sparklier the better in her opinion.  She's seventeen and graduating in May.  She received her cap & gown last week and right away started making plans to bedazzle it.  She kept saying that she wanted to "shine".   She'd been debating on how she could create the desired effect when luckily I received this sample of the new Purex Glitter detergent in the mail.  This was the perfect solution :)

We first tried it on a t-shirt to see what would happen just in case as we didn't want to destroy her graduation gown.  That worked great so we took a huge risk and washed the graduation gown.  WOW!  It worked perfect and it was exactly what she wanted.  See pic below....

Now mind you, she is graduating #3 in a class of almost 300 and will be giving a speech and leading prayer at graduation which is held outside in the morning sun on the football field LOL  So..... she will definitely be shining like a diamond.  

Oh!  I guess I should let you know the facts about this new product LOL.  Purex has designed a detergent that allows you to add a little sparkle, glitz & glam to your everyday wardrobe.  Contains 100% natural glitter formula.  No additives of Harmful chemicals.  Packs the power of Purex DirtLift Action.  The glitter embedds in your clothes and they come out "sparkling" clean.  Any glitter that does not leave the wash with your clothes flushes away down the drain during the spin cycle.  Like other Purex detergents, Purex Glitter is optimized to perform in High Efficiency or traditional machines and costs half the price as other leading detergents.  
Please check them out

Please leave a comment telling me what you'd like to use new Purex Glitter detergent on to add a little pizzaz to your everyday wardrobe.  

**I received a free product sample from Purex Glitter in order to conduct this review.  As always, my opinions are 100% my own.  

LOL . . . if they did make this my daughter would definitely do it though!!

Tom's of Maine WICKED COOL

I received this free sample of Tom's of Maine WICKED COOL toothpaste from Smiley360 in exchange for giving my honest opinion about the product.

This is a natural flouride toothpaste for kids age 8+ good for fighting cavities, strengthening enamel, and freshening breath plus it is dye free.  This toothpaste is designed to be minty enough to freshen dragon breath without causing a mint overload.  

My youngest son just turned 13 a few weeks ago and he thought the name WICKED COOL sounded cool so he volunteered to be the guinea pig LOL.  Ironically he liked the flavor so well I decided to try it for myself and then my daughter had to jump on the bandwagon.  We all agree that it left our teeth feeling clean and our breath fresh.  It got two thumbs up from all three of us!

**All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.  I did receive a free sample of the product in order to conduct my review however I was NOT compensated in any other way.  

Purex with Crystals Fragrance Review & Giveaway

WINNER - TnGramma 

Purex plus fabric Softener with Crystals Fragrance.... Now you can get your beloved Crystals fragrance in a laundry detergent too!

I received a full size bottle of Purex with Crystals to review and man alive I'll tell you what I am amazed at how well this product works.  I have two teenage boys who play ball and there's no if's, and's or but's about it THEY STINK (or at least they do after ball practice/games).  New Purex with Crystals combines the DirtLift Action for cleaning down deep with the fresh scent of line-dried laundry fabric softening ability.  Plus Purex brand costs about half the price of the leading brand and in fact the average family can expect to save over $45 a year by using Purex with Crystals.

This detergent did wonders for my dirtiest & stinkiest laundry.  When I first went into the laundry room the smell of dirt & sweat mixed together about knocked me down.  I literally had to hold my nose as I sorted out the massive pile of laundry.  Let's just say my son's gym socks could possibly be America's best kept secret weapon if put to use properly LOL.  Anyway, I decided to start with the smelliest loads first so that I could get rid of the stench permeating the laundry room.  I was delighted to find that Purex with Crystals left even the grimiest and smelliest items top notch clean and fresh smelling.  :)

**New Purex plus Fabric Softener with Crystals Fragrance is available in the liquid detergent aisle at your local WalMart, Target, Kroger, and other retailers.

But here's the best part, you don't have to take my word on it or even risk spending your own money to buy it because you have the opportunity to WIN a FREE coupon for a full size product (max value $6.00) right here.  Actually, you have four chances!
To enter the contest 
1) leave a comment on this post and tell me what brand of detergent and fabric softener you would like to replace with new Purex with Crystals.
2) Follow me on Twitter & Tweet about my contest.
3) Friend me on Facebook & share my contest on your wall
4) Become a follower of my blog :)

BONUS Entry - visit Purex on facebook & post to their wall that Crazy with the Crawfords sent you over
