The reason for my post today is to tell you all about Influenster. What is that you ask? Well, it's a wonderful online community: Influenster is a free -to-join community of invited trendsetters who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Influenster creates links between brands and members to reward participation and influence future products.
Basically, Influenster is a place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences. Active members of Influenster get exclusive access to deals, promotions, and swag from brands that thrive off the input (the good, the bad, and the ugly -- they just want to know what's up).
DISCLAIMER: I was sent these products to use and review. I was not compensated for this product review except for the actual products. All opinions are my own.
Now, if you're interested in Influenster, please send me an email at jennimf at AOL dot com (firstname.lastname@example.org). I have a few invites available.
|Just waiting for a few dishes to wash|
My first product review is for Palmolive soft touch. I don't do a lot of dishes, because the deal in my house is if you cook, you don't clean. But, there are dishes to be done when Chip is traveling or when he's not home, or when he's chatting with Zach about something super boring at the end of dinner :-).
I hate how my hands get dry and crack and my nails get brittle after doing dishes. I typically wear gloves. This Palmolive is the solution for my problems (well the hand problem I don't think it can solve all of life's problems). Having a product that is designed to be soft on my hands and still cut through grease and will leave my dishes squeaky clean? Bonus!!
I was sent two bottles. One is the Vitamin E and the other is the Aloe. I have tried both. Yes, I did dishes, geez the things I have to do around here! I really like the Aloe. I noticed it has a light to no scent, which is perfect because we don't want anything smelling too girly if Chip is doing the dishes! It's also thick enough to not spill when you squeeze it out of the bottle. The one great thing I noticed is that is doesn't leave spots on my glasses. We live in an area with very hard water. We have a water softener, but it still leaves spots on glassware, which bothers me to death. I was very impressed after washing a couple of wine glasses that there were no spots, compared to the usual soap I use (no names, but we'll just say it's blue). I am ready to make the switch!
The Vitamin E is the pink dish soap. I promise it has nothing to do with the color, but I was not as big of a fan. It has a very girly scent and is super thin. I try to get a little out of the bottle and it comes rushing out giving me far more than I need. It does a great job keeping your hands soft, but I think it's not the right soap in a house where the husband does the dishes.
They do offer one more variety that is coconut butter. Yes, I would be all over that one! So, what would you choose? Do you do all the dishes in your house or is it a shared chore?
