Giveaway: Make every room fresh with Renuzit Pearl Scents

When I think of decor in my home, I think about visual, comfort, textures and scent.  All these things, when put together is what really makes a home feel comfy. Leave any one out and you'll know something is missing.  Especially if you have odors, that lets say, aren't so pleasant.

Renuzit Pearl Scents are so pretty too.  I just removed the label so I could see the sparkly scented beads.

I have several cats, and that means I have a litter box in my laundry room, so I always want something that will make it a bit more pleasant in there.

Best of all these little beads continually fill your home with long-lasting odor neutralizers with aromatic scents for 30 days. Plus there's no need to plug anything in and cause your electric bill to rise.  That's also a safety feature in my eyes, no hot wax to spill and burn you.  As the beads dry out they start to shrink and you know it's time to replace them.

Renuzit Pearl Scents are now available in 5 aromatic scents:

  • Blue Sky Breeze
  • Serenity
  • Sparkling Rain
  • Tranquil
  • Seductive Pineapple
Renuzit Pearl Scents are available now at your local retailer! Keep up to date on all of Renuzit latest products and promotions by following them on Facebook and Twitter. To learn more about Renuzit Pearl Scents visit there website

What do I think

  • Renuzit keeps my laundry room, baths, living room & kitchen smelling fresh and clean.  Since adding one to my kitchen counter I no longer have lingering food smells.
  • Pearl Scents come in an attractive container and the shiny beads make it a pretty decorative accessory.
  • For less than $4.00, Renuzit Pearl Scents are very affordable.
  • All-in-all I give them a 2 thumbs up. 
Now comes the fun part, one winner will receive not one but THREE FREE COUPONS for their choice of Renuzit Pearl Scents.  Entering is easy, just follow the simple instructions on the Giveaway Tools form below.

Good Y'all...

Create in me a pure heart, O' God and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Dial Sugar Cane Hush Scrub Giveaway

When I received Dial's newest hand soap and saw that it was Sugar Cane Husk Scrub, I wasn't sure that I would care for it.  That is until I squeezed a little out. See I normally avoid those sugar flavored body creams and candles.  I just don't care for those scents, but boy is this so different.  I'd like to bath my whole body in it and then carry the bottle around to sniff.  It's that awesome!!  

The gentle micro-scrubbers gently deep clean, while skin conditioners hydrate, moisturize and smooth your skin.
This is the newest scent in Dial's Boutique Collection which includes:

  • Yellow Raspberry
  • Water Blossoms
  • Coconut Lime Verbena
  • Sugar Cane Husk Scrub

Jesus Washes His Disciples' Feet
It was just before the Passover Festival.  Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father.  Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus.  Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.  After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"

Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."
~ John 13:1-7

Disclosure: The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash in exchange for a product review.  As always all opinions expressed are my own.

I'm so happy spring is finally here in Florida, but I know a lot of you are still dealing with what seems like the year of the never ending winter.  Don't give up yet, the end is close.

Whether it's cool weather or warm weather, our skin takes a beating.  It's nice to pamper it anyway you can. That's why I like Dial's new Miracle Oil Body Wash, it's a no effort way to treat my skin to a little tenderness.

What's new about this Dial Body Wash?

The first thing you notice on the bottle are the words MIRACLE OIL.  Why are they calling it that? Easy, it's infused with caring Marula Oil.  And here's a Marula Oil fact:  Marula Oil is known to deeply hydrate and nourish skin while protecting it from skin-damaging free radicals.

Now you're probably wondering where does Marula Oil come from.  I can answer that too.  The oil is comes from the ripened fruit of the Marula tree, which is found in Africa.  They extract the oil from the kernels of the Marula fruit.  I'm certain you'll be hearing lots more about this miracle oil in the future.

What do I think about Dial's New Miracle Oil Body Wash?

When I shower or bathe I don't want to step out feeling like my skin is taut and dry before I even dry the water off.  That's the problem with most soaps.  Not so with the Marula infused Dial.  My skin feels soft and silky without feeling oily or greasy. 
I save money wherever I can and Dial is so affordable. It only takes a small squeeze to product a rich lather.  The 16oz bottle will really last.  

Most of all I love the scent.  I just want to stand there with the bottle squeezing and smelling. UMMM....heavenly.  I smell the warm scents of amber and vanilla, sort of like a sensual candle that you would burn.  I want to take a shower every night just before bed (as opposed to earlier in the day) just so I can fall asleep breathing that calming scent.  I hope they come out with a Dial Miracle Oil lotion now. hee-hee.  I give it 5 cotton balls, which is as good as 5 stars any day.

Winning is Easy

There will be 2 lucky winners.  Simply fill out the Giveaway Tools form below for your chance to win a FREE coupon and you can have your own mini spa moment. Ends 4/4/15 at 11:59 PM EST.

NEW! Purex PowerShot Laundry Detergent Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: Purex brand provided me with a sample of Purex PowerShot detergent in exchange for a product review.  However, all the opinions expressed here are my own. 

I know that my long time readers don't need to be reminded of how much I love Purex products, but for all you new readers, I'll say it again....I LOVE Purex products.
Just when we think they can't come up with anything better, they do.  The New Purex PowerShot takes the guesswork out of measuring and simplifies your laundry routine. No more measuring, no more messy drips. New PowerShot dispenses the right amount of super concentrated formula every time.

Bonus:  There is 50% more stain fighting power in every drop! Booyah Y'all!!! That's Purex, they are always offering you something more.
The new bottle with built-in auto-dosing technology is super easy to use.  Just open the cap, flip the bottle upside down to deliver the perfect dose of detergent.  That's it - you're done!  Now the PowerShot engine automatically refills and is ready for the next dose.  What could be easier?

Purex PowerShot is available in their two most popular fragrances, Mountain Breeze and Natural Elements Linen & Lilies.

What do I think?
Well I'm thinking cha-ching!  By using the new Purex PowerShot, not only am I saving time but I'm saving money.  No more waste for using too much detergent or having it wasted dripping down the bottle.  I'm thinking this is a real game changer for the parents who have young laundry helpers in their homes.  All you need to know is:
  • Use 1 flip for regular loads
  • Use 2 flips for large or extra dirty loads
Now Purex and I are giving 2 Cotton Pickin Cute readers a chance to win a FREE bottle of Purex PowerShot detergent.  That could be you!  Simple enter using the easy Giveaway Tools form below.  Giveaway Ends March 7th at 11:59 PM EST. 

Good Luck Y'all...

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
