Truly Grass Fed Cheese Party 

People barely touched the cheese; once they tasted it, they didn't care for it. They took the tote bags, though. This brand needs to create varieties with very strong seasonings, and at about a quarter of the price, if they want to sell cheese to Americans. #ChooseTruly, #TrulyGrassFed #Tryazon

Renuzit Pearl Scents 

The fine folks at Purex and Renuzit have sent me Renuzit Pearl Scents, Blue Sky Breeze scent, to try for free... but they didn't put any words in my mouth.

Their website says:

"Renuzit® Pearl Scents®

Renuzit® Pearl Scents® is a pretty odor neutralizer that fills your home with refreshing fragrances that last up to 30 days. And with this charming little jar, there’s no need for electric plugs or flames. Simply, set it down and it continuously leaves your room with a light and fresh scent.

Available in:
Pure Breeze®
After the Rain®
Seductive Pineapple"


Here's what *I* say:

I like the way that the container looks:

and the way the scent pearls look like florist marbles:

The color is nice, and although I don't have any blue rooms, it's a neutral enough color that it looks nice anywhere. The fragrance is ok, sort of soapy, but I'm not big on scents that don't actually refer to real-world scented objects... skies and breezes have no fragrance. I like other scents in this line better, particularly "Seductive Pineapple"... kind of a funny name, when the other names are so peaceful, lol. The important thing about the fragrances is that they aren't excessively floral scents that the men in the family might object to. For me, having something that looks kind of cool sitting in plain view, as opposed to those white plastic things, is a big plus. The only thing I would change would be to make the top black, so that it is less immediately obvious that it is plastic; they might have been trying to simulate metal, I suppose, but non-metallic plastic just can't do that. Overall, this is a far more attractive home fragrancing option than the vast majority of what is out there, and they have a good selection of scents to choose from, so you should be able to find one that you like. I recommend giving them a try… and one of you can try them for FREE!! Just shoot me an email telling me what bad odors you need to fight in your home, and I'll select one of you to win coupons for FREE Renuzit Pearl Scents!! :)

NEW Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap 

(The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap in exchange for a product review… but they didn't put any words in my mouth.)

The fine folks at Purex and Dial sent me the following info:

"NEW Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap is the newest member of the Dial® Boutique Collection Hand Soap line, bringing luxury to your hand washing experience. With an indulgent scent inspired by freshly cut Sugar Cane, this premium formula with gentle micro scrubbers cleanses deeply while moisturizing and smoothing skin."

They also sent me a bottle of the soap to try. You can see it on their website here:


And here's a photo I took:

As you can see, it has a cool, modern bottle shape that will look nice next to your sink. It has a sweet, slightly tangy fragrance that is appealing without being too perfumey for a man or child to use. More importantly, it does a great job of cleaning my hands, even if they've gotten pretty yucky. It has enough abrasive to clean without irritating my skin, and moisturized as well. It was also good to use to help clean and smooth rough elbows, which is a plus.

If you have people in your house with dirty hands, and you probably do, you'll want to give this soap a try. One of you can try it for FREE; send me an email telling me the yuckiest thing you had to wash off your hands recently, and I'll pick someone to win coupons for FREE soap!! :-)

New Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash 

The fine folks at Purex and Dial sent me a free bottle of this product to try out in exchange for a product review (as always, them giving me a free product doesn't mean they put any words in my mouth; my opinions are my own):

This image came from their Facebook page, where they said:

"Restore your skin and get a soft and smooth clean with new Miracle Oil Body Wash infused with Marula Oil."


I had to go to their Facebook page, because this product is so new that it is not yet on their website. When it DOES show up there, I assume it will be on this page with the rest of the body washes:


(Lots of goodies on that page-I've used most of 'em!!)

They also sent me the following info:

"N ew Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash is infused with caring Marula oil for beautifully, soft skin. This new body wash is formulated with Micro Oil Technology for luxurious, clean-rinsing lather that leaves skin feeling clean, soft and smooth."

As you can see, this body wash comes in a cool bottle that is very easy to hold onto in the shower; if you have ever dropped a full bottle of body wash on your toe, you will appreciate the design of the bottle as much as I do.

Here's something interesting about Marula Oil:

"The Tsonga people of South Africa and Mozambique have used the oil as a moisturising body lotion for women and also as a massage oil for babies. In the past, women used Marula oil rather than water to clean themselves."


There's a long and pretty awesome article about it here:


So, this is a nice addition to a body wash, and I haven't seen it in any other products… I like to be the first one to use something.

I found that this body wash lathered nicely, and left me feeling clean and with softer skin. As a bonus, it smells really fab, sort of sweet and nutty; because it's not floral, men and kids will use it without complaint. I also kind of get a kick out of the old school Dial color of it; it makes me think of the bottle of Dial liquid hand soap that my mother always had by the kitchen sink.

Are you ready to give it a try? Email me your favorite soap-related childhood memory, and I'll pick someone to receive coupons for FREE body wash!! :-)
