Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap (Product Review)

Strep Throat. It took me down hard!Dial Deep Cleansing Water Blossoms I feel like I’ve been lost all week just trying to recover now that the antibiotic has been in my system for five days. When you’re sick you and your entire household do a lot of extra hand washing. I found it rather fitting that I had just been sent some Deep Cleansing Hand Soap by Dial to review. I enjoy being a Purex Insider where I get to review fun products that the whole family can benefit from. We’ve been using the Coconut Lime Verbena and Water Blossoms scents in our bathrooms. At first, both were in our bathroom but our kids begged to have the Water Blossoms in their bathroom after they had tried out both kinds a few times. The Water Blossoms has a very pleasant scent but I prefer the Coconut Lime Verbena. Dial Deep Cleansing Coconut Lime Verbena It has that citrus-y zing that I associate with being clean. This deep cleansing hand soap has these micro-scrubbing beads in them, yet they are very moisturizing at the same time. My hands haven’t felt overly dried out upon switching my hand soaps. The scents really are wonderful and I’m glad I was sent the Coconut Lime Verbena scent, especially. It comes in one other scent that we haven’t tried, yet–Yellow Raspberry & Black Sugar. I’m curious as to what that scent would smell like. The next time that I’m in the hand soap aisle I will have to find out. Dial just put these products on the shelf last month so you should be able to find them in a soap aisle near you! :-)

What is YOUR favorite hand soap? Better yet, what’s the funniest reason you’ve had to wash your hands?? Do share in the comment section below.

“This is Boyly Soap!” (A Three-year-old’s Product Review Of Dial Kids Body+Hair Wash AND Giveaway)

This morning, bright and early, our three-year-old son, Ezra, came bounding into our room. He heard the shower and knew his Daddy was in there. Immediately I heard, “Daddy, can I take a shower, too? Can I use my new soap that smells good?” He was so excited when my husband said yes. Ezra usually showers at night, so both of us had a good chuckle over his exuberance to not only shower, but to insist on using his new body wash.
DialKidsBodyWashPurexInsider While in the shower, Ezra was declaring how much he loved his new soap. It has this awesome peach smell so I can understand why he liked it so well. While washing, it was mentioned that it doesn’t smell like “girly” soap but that it just smells clean to which Ezra exclaimed, “Yeah, it’s not girly soap, it’s “boyly” soap! :-)

Are any of you wondering about this body wash that Ezra is enjoying so much? As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I am a Purex Insider and this program sends me different products to try for free in exchange for an honest review of their product. My family is truly enjoying this latest round of products. I am pleased to share with you that the Dial brand has created the NEW Dial Kids Body & Hair Wash for two different age groups so our children can have age-appropriate cleansing products to meet their specific skin needs. The two age groups are 2+ (which is for ages 2 to 5) and 6+ (created for ages 6 to 10). Ezra is three so his 2+ body wash comes in this fabulous peach scent called Peachy Clean (in the white bottle pictured). It was made for children who have outgrown the traditional newborn soaps, but are not yet ready for adult strength body and hair wash. I know he said it was “boyly” and not “girly” but trust me, moms and dads, when I tell you that your daughter will smell like a sweet little peach and her skin will be so soft. I could smell Ezra before he got out of the shower. I think Dial needs to make a lotion in the same scent. It’s great! Ezra also didn’t cry about soap getting into his eyes both times that he’s used this so far AND his hair is shiny. Seriously, since he was in the shower, a picture would have been inappropriate but I wish I could have captured his joy over taking another shower just to use his new soap. The 2-in-1 formula was designed to make shampooing and body washing easy and speedy, according to Dial, but I wonder if they knew it would make kids WANT to get clean!?! One thing I discovered about the product is that it was developed with pediatric dermatologists. My kiddos have sensitive skin like their momma so a dermatologist’s backing is appreciated.

I happen to also have an almost-seven-year-old in my house so Purex Insiders also sent me the 6+ variant to try. The 6+ body and hair wash boasts to mildly cleanse the skin without drying it out. We were sent Watery Melon. Berry Cool is another scent said to be on the shelves soon for the 6+ age category. Ella was thrilled with her body wash, as well. No, she didn’t beg for extra showers, but she was extremely excited to toss her current body wash away. It was supposed to smell like Strawberries and Cream but the strawberries must have gone bad in that bottle. She hated that stuff and it was supposed to soften her skin, but I can’t say that I’ve noticed any such results. So, she eagerly opened the bottle of Dial Kids Watery Melon Body+Hair Wash and went to work. The smell was pleasing, but not overpowering and there was a great lather. It didn’t take much of the product to get the job done, either. Now Ella has what we call “Rapunzel hair” meaning that it is super long so we have been using certain shampoos and conditioners for her specific hair needs. We decided to just use this new product for body wash. But, if we were on a trip I would not hesitate to use this on her hair, as well, since I’ve seen positive results with Ezra’s use of his Dial Kids Body+Hair Wash. Both age-appropriate formulas report to be tear free, hypoallergenic, contain no artificial dyes or added parabens and are Ph balanced.

Below is a picture of my sweet, smelling cuties on Easter Sunday! :-)

Dial Holiday Antibacterial Foaming Hand Wash

I am a Purex Insider and had a fun opportunity to try a new Antibacterial Holiday Foaming Hand Wash from Dial! My kids loved trying out this product! The bottles had cute holiday designs on them. We received one with Santa on it and the other was red with festive trees. The antibacterial soap is red in the bottle so the foam is pink and it smells fresh and fruity. The funny thing is, we couldn’t figure out what the scent actually was. It may have been cranberry, but I’m still not so sure. I looked all over the bottle for an actual name to the scent but there was none to be had. Personally, I wouldn’t choose a bottle of soap without looking at the scent. I don’t think I’ve ever purchased soap for it’s physical appearance only, even if the bottles are as cute as the ones we’ve received. I think Dial would help it’s customers out if they added the name of the scent to the package. This really is the only criticism I have of the product, though. The foaming hand wash bottle dispensed the perfect amount of soap per hand washing and the pump worked EVERY time! I appreciated that the soap was antibacterial, yet it didn’t dry out our skin. We just ran out of our first bottle that we’ve had for about 3 to 4 weeks. Considering I have little kids who wash their hands A LOT, I would say it went very far. :-) My three year old son keeps talking about how great the soap is! I’ve appreciated this campaign to try and review this product. Thank you Dial and Purex for sending me the free bottles of foaming hand wash.
