“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.

Guess What I Paid For These…!

Guess what I paid for these tonight?

I was alerted to a Target deal over at MoneySavingMom.com about Purex Complete Crystals Softener being $2.99 this week. Using the $2 off manufacturer’s coupon in the 3/13 RedPlum (RP) insert from the Sunday paper and stacking it with Target’s $1 off manufacturer’s coupon scored me FREE bottles! I had two $2 off coupons and two $1 Target coupons and then I had a coupon for a FREE bottle of this stuff from being a Purex Insider. It was definitely a fun Target trip. Hurry, go find that insert and clip that coupon. Don’t forget to print the Target one. The sale ends tomorrow.

We could have left the store without paying a cent, but we grabbed some soup and some dryer sheets. The sweet part about the whole trip was that the three most expensive things in the cart were completely FREE!!!!! :-)

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!
