Purex Plus Oxi Review and Giveaway

I was invited to be a Purex Insider and was given a bottle of Purex plus Oxi to test out. I have used Purex in the past, but not regularly, and now that I work in a lab, my clothes get dirty quite often, so I was pleased to find out that this particular bottle of laundry detergent contained both Oxi and Zout, which are stain removers. My mum swears by Zout, and basically every time there is a stain on my clothes, she tells me to put a little Zout on it before throwing it in the wash. Purex plus Oxi is the most powerful Purex detergent available, specially formulated to fight over 101 different stains. Instead of buying seperate bottles of stain removers, you can now use Purex plus Oxi to pretreat tough stains! Just pour a little Purex plus Oxi onto the stain, rub the stained fabric together using your fingers, wait five minutes and then add your clothes into the wash as you would normally do.

Purex plus Oxi has been formulated to work in both regular and high efficiency washing machines. I really liked the light and fresh scent, which wasn't too overpowering. It also has a hypoallergenic formula and is perfect for everyday laundry or heavily soiled loads of clothing.

Please visit Purex Laundry for more information on Purex plus Oxi and other Purex products.

Crest Pro-Health - BzzAgent Product Review

BzzAgent has given me the opportunity to review a few of the Crest Pro-Health products. I have been using their toothbrushes and toothpaste for several years now, ever since the line was introduced, so I was quick to accept. I did have to pay $1 for the products, though the money was donated.

I received a Oral-B CrossAction Pro-Health toothbrush, Crest Pro-Health toothpaste and Crest Pro-Health multi-protection mouthwash.  Because I currently use these products, it was a no-brainer to write up a review.

The Oral-B toothbrush is one of my favourite toothbrushes I have used. I buy the ones with the soft bristles, and it has a large enough head that I feel really cleans my teeth as I brush. There are soft rubbery bristles on the sides of the toothbrush that also helps with the cleaning. As an added bonus, there are grooves on the back of the toothbrush head that you can use as a tongue scraper!

I received the Crest Pro-Health toothpaste in cool peppermint. I'm not a big fan of peppermint, and the toothpaste I currently use is Clean Mint flavour. The peppermint flavour is labelled ProFresh, and fights bad breath for hours. That sounds good to me! Crest Pro-Health toothpastes are a little grittier than I like, but it does leave a nice fresh and clean feeling after I brush.

Lastly, I tried out the Crest Pro-Health mouthwash. I rarely use mouthwash, and when I do, it's Listerine, but because Crest Pro-Health is an alcohol-free rinse, there is no burning sensation. It's definitely a lot more pleasant to use!

I think the three Crest Pro-Health products combined really leaves my mouth and teeth feeling clean and refreshed and I'll definitely continuing using this line. It's always great when I get to share my experience on products I already use! Have you tried any of the Crest Pro-Health products? Let me know what you think!
