I'm usually the one who does the laundry and I've washed so man loads in my lifetime that sorting has become second nature. However, the rules have changed in our home. I no longer wash all of the laundry. Now that I have teenagers, they are responsible for helping keep their own clothes clean. My teenage son definitely doesn't want to take the time sorting laundry. His idea is to shove every item he owns into one load. Naturally this has caused color bleeding accidents that have ruined some of his clothes.


It's no surprise my son was more excited to try the new Purex® No Sort for Colors Detergent than I was. In fact, he gathered up his laundry without me asking as soon as he saw our new bottle sitting on the table. I had to laugh when I saw almost every color of the rainbow underneath his white shirt. In his basket, he had colors that would normally cause bleeding stains. 

The Purex® No Soft for Colors Detergent worked surprisingly well to prevent color bleeding. His light colored shirt stayed the same color without any little colored spots transferred from his other clothes. Purex® No Sort for Colors contains a special dye transfer inhibitor to keep this from happening. I'm so glad it worked for us.

The thing I like about the Purex® Detergent is that it leaves our clothes smelling fresh without any heave perfumes like some of the other leading brands we've tried. With boys, they don't want to walk around smelling like a fresh flower but they don't want their clothes to smell like they've been sweating in them all day either. I love that the Purex® No Sort Detergent solves both problems while leaving our clothes clean as well. 

We give the detergent five stars for making our laundry chore easier. 
Four stars on how well it cleans and four stars on the scent.

 My son has already insisted that I change detergent. He let me know he is done sorting and apparently teenagers think they can make their own rules.

Purex Fresh Pet Liquid Detergent Review

*Purex provided me with a sample of Purex Fresh Pet detergent for Pet Clothing in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.

Yay! A company that listens to the customer.

My dog (Gizmo) and I have been looking for pet detergent for a long time. I hate putting my dog's clothes through the same wash load as my family's clothes. I also worry about the smells and pet stains in my dogs clothing. I need something mild for his sensitive skin. I hate when he sits on his chair and scratches so the last thing I want is a laundry detergent that will make him itch more.

Purex Fresh Pet detergent for pet clothing finally gets it right. A liquid laundry detergents just for pets with clean power and odor control action. Purex liquid laundry detergent for pets removed all of the pet stains in Gizmo's clothing. Not only that, but it worked without making him itch.

I love that the fact that Gizmo can rock his favorite pirate outfit in style all while smelling fresh and clean. It works well for his winter coat too. He has a yellow coat with some dark stains but after using Purex, the stains are gone and his yellow coat looks like sunshine again.

Well done Purex. I couldn't find anything about the new detergent I didn't like and my family is happy to get the yucky dog clothes out of their laundry basket and into his own.

Skin Care Review: Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid

FTC Disclosure: I am a BzzAgent and get samples through my participation. Paula's Choice provided a sample at no charge to facilitate my review.

My group loves trying new products and as a group of ladies, we love skin care. All it takes is for one of us to say, "You've got to try this," and everybody wants to jump at it. That is why we were excited to get samples of Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid. We all tried it and thought it was a great product for the price point.

I have to admit, I was a bit leery of trying a product with Salicylic Acid in it. I have always associated that ingredient with acne. At my age, I am beyond acne and I am more concerned with keeping an even skin tone and preventing wrinkles. However, I found that the liquid worked great as an exfoliant. The BHA liquid is a toner like product that cleaned my face quickly and left it ready to receive my usual moisturizer. In fact, the first time I used it I though my face was clean before applying it. I was surprised to see how dirty my cotton ball was after I used the liquid on my face.

The product didn't make my face sting as I expected though it did sting a little when I applied moisturizer. It claims it builds collagen. I wish I had a way to measure that as I would love a product that actually did what it claimed. At my age, I can use more collagen but I didn't notice a change with my skin.

I did not have any acne breakouts during the course of my trial period so I can't really comment on how well the product does with acne. Reducing acne breakouts is the main purpose of the product.

At $23.00 I felt the price was good for the quality of the product. I have tried department store products that are more expensive but less effective. I like that the product is fragrance free. I am sensitive to fragrances and Paula's Choice Liquid truly has no scent to worry about irritating my skin. A solid product at a good price point.

Product Rating: ★★★★☆
