Purex Complete with Zout=AWESOME!

I am a Purex Insider! That means I get to try new Purex products and review them. Since I was already a Purex fan I applied to be an Insider. You can, too. APPLY HERE!

Recently a bottle of Purex Complete with Zout was delivered to my door (Yes! TO MY DOOR!). You can imagine my excitement to try a new product that is needed in my daily life. I have a 4 year old and 21 month old. My son, the younger one, is a much messier eater than his sister. There are times when he’ll be eating and I’ll look at his shirt and sigh to myself knowing it is highly probable that those stains aren’t coming out without a major fight and even then it isn’t at all likely. But Purex Complete with Zout boasts that it contains a triple enzyme stain remover (Zout). Each enzyme targets a different type of stain. One fights protein based stains (grass), another fights starchy stains (tomato sauce) and the third works against Guar, a sticky thickener in many foods (ice cream).

I had company visiting when I received the bottle of detergent so I set it aside for the next big stain. Of course I had my chance to use it that very same weekend. My precious son truly enjoyed his pizza for his Sunday lunch at Pizza Hut. He had on a white, button down, collared dress shirt and a vest (Yes, he looked stinkin’ adorable!) that day. Though he sported a bib, that nasty pizza sauce attacked that pristine shirt with vengeance. I was at a restaurant so I couldn’t just strip him down to start working on the stain so I calmly prayed that the new bottle of Purex Complete with Zout really would work. I went home with every intention to pretreat that stain immediately, but our company was leaving and I got distracted. Over two hours later I remembered to pretreat with some of the detergent. Again, I had good intentions to come back 5 minutes later and drop it into the washer….but I was distracted once more. So, an hour or more passed by before I washed that shirt. I used the detergent with my load of clothes as directed. I only used the warm/cold cycle because this shirt was only supposed to be washed in cold water. I was extremely skeptical that those stains would be out since I couldn’t even use the hottest water setting. When the cycle was finished I removed the shirt from the machine and searched frantically for every spot of pizza sauce that I had pretreated. Guess what I found…(drum roll, please)…NO pizza stains! Seriously!

This stuff really works! :-)

Stay tuned for a giveaway for a coupon to try this detergent for yourself!

Maybelline SuperStay 24 2-Step Lipcolor

I am a Bzz Agent so from time to time, I get sent products in the mail to try and then write a review about them. I love this program and am thrilled to start blogging my reviews so my readers can try the stuff, too. I had to share this review since I have a coupon link for the product. Ask me how you can be a Bzz Agent.

I was extremely excited to get my Maybelline SuperStay 24 2-Step Lipcolor samples in the mail! I couldn’t believe I was sent 4 different shades! I quickly picked the two I could easily give away and decided to keep two of the shades for myself so that I could try them and be able to report on them.

It comes in a two-ended tube. The Step One applicator contains the lipcolor that you apply and then wait for two minutes to let the product completely dry on your lips. Next, use the other end where the Step Two lip balm is to be applied as a moisturizing top coat. You can use the lip balm any time for the rest of the day. It was super easy to follow the instructions and the color really did dry in 2 mintues. The lip balm felt good on my lips and there was no color transfer from my lips to the lip balm. So far, I really like the shade Wear on Wildberry. It glides on well and the lip balm was nice to have when I wanted more moisture applied to my lips during the day.

I have worn this shade on two different days. The first time I tried it, it lasted through a doctor’s office visit where Ezra, my 21 mo old son, kept touching my lips wondering what was on them AND it lasted through a date with my hubby. My lips went through a lot of touching, kissing, drinking and eating and every time I looked in the mirror, the color was still there. I was a little shocked every time I checked. It definitely has not transferred when I have worn it so far. I did notice that it did start to fade by the end of the night, though. Although, I didn’t see any of it transfer to a napkin or my husband’s lips or even my kids’ foreheads, I did notice that the inside area of my lips had lost their color. The outer lips remained full of color. This wasn’t a huge deal to me, but I want to give a fair review since the product boasts that it does not fade over time.

My mom and my sister were visiting so I was able to give them each a shade to try. My sis tried the Forever Chestnut. It was a nice natural color. She had no issues figuring out how to use it AND she didn’t have any transfer either. She does agree with me that it starts to fade over time and definitely does not last 24 hrs. But, she liked the product, as well. When I wore the Wear On Wildberry my mom and sis kept complimenting me on my makeup so I know this lipcolor made the difference. I didn’t do anything new to my make up routine except add lipcolor. Who knew? Thanks, Maybelline! :-)

Of course, I had to share how I received these awesome samples to try. My sister wants to be a Bzz Agent now. My mom already is one, but she wasn’t a part of this campaign so it was fun to get to share it with her as well. I promised to post a link for a coupon so they could try more shades themselves.
