Product Review and Giveaway: Purex Power Shot


 Yeah! We get dirty!




But we have so much fun outside, we don't care.

After our adventures, our clothes aren't just dirty but stinky too. I can't tell you how many pairs of muddy socks we've thrown away rather than drag them home from trips with us because we didn't have a washer.



So what do we about it?

Our dirty laundry need rescuing and that's exactly one of the biggest reasons I became a Purex® Insider. Some of the major detergent brands leave my skin itchy with rashes. Purex® is one brand I've never had to worry about. 


I get excited when I receive the new Purex products to review at no charge. The latest, Purex® Power Shot, is exactly what our laundry needs. After using an HE washer for years, I realized I may be using too much laundry detergent. I love the Purex® Power Shot. It is so easy to get the right amount of detergent and better yet, the no-spill detergent bottle doesn't drip all over my washer after use. I don't need one more mess to clean up after a hard day of hiking.

Purex® Power Shot is an easy measure liquid detergent. All I have to do is flip the lid, turn the bottle upside down, and let bottle do my work. If my clothes are muddy, I can use an extra shot, but I've found that I rarely have to do that. 

I don't have to worry about Purex on my sensitive skin. The Power Shot is like their other products and doesn't leave my skin itchy. It leaves my family's clothes smelling fresh and clean without a heavy scent. 

 For those who love the mountains, the Power Shot detergent also comes in Mountain Breeze scent.

I can't wait to get back on the trail. But I have to admit, even with the Purex® Power Shot, I'm not too thrilled about folding laundry.

Orajel™ Single Dose For Cold Sores: Product Review

Product received at no charge for review purposes. Opinions based upon actual experience.


It has been a long time since I've used an over the counter product for cold sores. I usually use a prescription medication and have always assumed they worked better. However, after trying the Orajel™ Single Dose, I am a firm believer in OTC products again.

I used the Orajel™as soon as I del a cold sore coming on. My cold sore still appeared but not as big as I have had them in the past. It also didn't last as long as usual either. I liked the single use applicator. I didn't have to worry about a dirty applicator spreading my cold sores. I also liked how soothing the medication felt. Since my lips get so dry during the cold winters, the moisturizer was a nice addition. It made my lips feel smooth.

Though I received the product at no charge, I would gladly pay the retail price the next time I get a cold sore. It is worth the cost. I didn't find anything about the product I disliked or would like to change.
