Renuzit product review and GIVEAWAY!!

It has been WAY TOO LONG since I have had a giveaway on my blog. I am so excited that I get to give away three free coupons to three lucky winners at the end of the week! Renuzit Sensitive Scents is a new product line from Renuzit.
These new products come in three new scents and three ways to be used. I really liked two of the scents Pure Water Blossom & Cucumber was a nice crisp fresh scent and I am enjoying it very much. I also really like the Pure White Pear & Lavender. I think it leaves rooms smelling really nice and sweet and gives it a great intro to spring. The one scent that I really thought I was going to enjoy was the Pure Ocean Breeze. Now it is truly just a preference thing because I thought it smelled like some brands fresh laundry and that is just a scent I don't like. The rest of my family thought it was very nice. The three ways to enjoy these scents are in the picture as well. The basic adjustable scent cone- I think it does a great job this is where I would like a bit more scent they are made to last for four weeks. The scented oil can be used in any brand of warming unit out there, so it is called a universal oil warmer. That is very cool feature because if you already have a warmer all you will need to buy is the oil refill. I thought of the three products this had the most scent added to the air. If it would have been a scent I enjoyed more I probably would have given this one my best review. The final option is the trigger sprayer, deodorizing spray. I sprayed it on my couch and my girls love to spray it on their pillows before they go to bed. It has a fun fresh and just amount of scent. Now enter my giveaway!!! Winners will be drawn towards the end of the week. 

Thank you Purex Insiders and Renuzit for the free products to review and the free coupons that were given to me so that I can give them away to my readers. All the words and images here are my own.

Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners #Review

I have been wanting to try these for a few years now but just never got around to buying them. I am now kicking myself because they work so very well. I always make a hamburger and cheese dip for the Super Bowl and the crock pot stays on the whole time so there is always nasty sticky cheese stuck to the side. I used to set the crock pot in my sink- soak it overnight scrub it in the morning, soak again, scrub again over and over for about a week. With this liner in, I made the dip we ate the dip the dip sat for the long game, I got home asked my husband to hold a storage container by me I picked up both ends dumped the leftovers in the container, then wiped out the crock pot with a paper towel and put it away. Oh my goodness SO WORTH EVERY PENNY! I will never cook without these again!

I was provided a free sample of this product from Crowdtap and Reynolds- all the words here are my own.

Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheets #Review

Valentine's day was upon us and I had to bake my famous sugar cookies- yes they really are famous. I had a teacher who had one of my children last year specifically ask me if I would bring these for the Valentine party. It was the perfect time to try out my new Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheets. I used them in two ways. First I took two sheets to the paper and put my dough along with some flour and rolled them out that way. It makes it so much easier to get them off of the paper than it is to get them off of a surface. Plus the rolling pin stays clean and there is no need to worry about getting any dough stuck on the pin. I then placed a sheet of the parchment paper on my baking trays. I was skeptical that I would see much of a difference because my cookies usually don't have any issues (or so I thought!) on my pans. I baked several trays on the Reynolds baking sheets and then decided to test a group without using the paper. I didn't realize that they really did stick to the tray! I had NO trouble getting the ones off using the Reynolds product but I had to get my server our to try to get the cookies off the tray without the paper and then they left some crumbs on the tray so the bottoms were not as smooth. Also the ones with paper seemed a bit darker and a tad discolored. Something I would not have even thought twice about if I hadn't had the paper. However having it showed me how much better they looked when they had that extra protection between the sheet and the cookie. I loved how they were precut and fit on all of my trays that made it super easy.

Oh I guess I technically used them three ways after I frosted them I put a sheet between each level so I could stack them and the frosting wouldn't stick. These will for sure be a new must have in my house. My only question as a famous (well in my neck of the woods) cookie baker is, How did it take me so long to find this great product?!?!

All the words and statements here are my own. I was given a free product thanks to Crowdtap and Reynolds in exchange for my review.

Listerine HealthyWhite anticavity mouthwash review

I was excited to get to try Listerine's new HealthyWhite anticavity mouthwash, because I have been thinking lately man my teeth are yellow! I thought this product worked really well at whitening my teeth I am just sad that the picture I posted doesn't really show much change because I notice it a lot! The wash doesn't really have a flavor but I would swish for one minute and then spit. Then the directions say not to eat or drink for 30 minutes. I did not read that the first time so make sure you remember this. Also there is a bit of "residue" that stays on your teeth- which I thought was great it looks like it is continuing to work, but you also don't want to show up like that for work :) Overall I thought it was a great product, my only thought would be to add a fun fresh flavor to it but other than that it was great.

Thank you Crowdtap and Listerine for giving me a free sample of this product in exchange for my review. All the words here are my own.
