Purex Crystals Aromatherapy

I was very excited to be able to try the newest Purex Crystals in Aromatherapy scents. I received a bottle of the Energy scent. I found this scent to be stronger than the regular Purex Crystals, but also really enjoyed it.

The NEW Purex Crystals Aromatherapy is an in-wash scent booster.
  • Express your mood with each unique aroma
  • Energizing & long lasting scent infusion
  • Citrus & flora scents blended with essential oils

These new scents were available starting mid-October.  Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate these at any of my local stores. 

The Purex brand provided me with a sample of Purex Crystals  Aromatherapy in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.

Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

I was lucky enough to receive two bottles of the new Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap to try.

The deep cleansing hand soap is the latest Dial Brand hand soap. These are premium soaps that feature vibrant scents, a gentle micro scrubber formula that smooths and moisturizes the skin. The design of these new soaps also adds style to your home.

This new deep cleansing hand soap comes in three scents.

  • Yellow Raspberry & Black Sugar - refreshes your senses with a tart and rich sweetness
  • Water Blossoms - invigorates with a crisp floral scent inspired by aquatic botanicals
  • Coconut Lime Verbena - brightens your day with juicy and tangy citrus
 This soap has a moisturizing formula with skin conditioners that hydrate your skin and visibly improve skin dryness while micro-scrubbers help gently remove dirt from your hands to leave them feeling smooth and refreshed.

I tried the yellow raspberry & black sugar, and the coconut lime verbena scents. I loved both of these scents and will definitely buy these in the future.

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

This year I spent the Super Bowl at one of my friends watching the game and eating good food! I decided to make buffalo chicken taquitos. I had these at another friends house and she had found the recipe on Pinterest.

These were so easy to make. I cooked my chicken in the crockpot, so preparation was very easy! The sauce is spicy, but not super spicy. The kids at the party were able to eat them.

I used burrito sized tortillas and cut them into thirds. I served them with ranch dressing.  I will definitely be making these again!
