Review and Giveaway: Purex Complete Crystals Fabric Softeners

So I'm excited to make an announcement: I'm a Purex Insider. Yes, that means I get to try out the latest and greatest from Purex and share the results with you. Lucky me the first product they sent out was a fabric softener. I love fabric softeners. They make your clothes smell so good! So let me share the latest about Purex Complete Crystals Fabric Softeners!


WHAT IT IS > UNIQUE CRYSTAL FORM, 92% NATURAL FABRIC SOFTENER
Introducing Purex® Complete Crystals SoftenerTM*; a purer way to get laundry that smells clean and fresh for weeks. 92% natural, this product’s unique crystal form works differently than traditional oil-based softeners that coat fabrics with oily residue, because it infuses fibers with long-lasting fragrance. In addition, since you add it directly with your laundry, this means no more waiting for the rinse cycle, no messy residual gunk in your washing machine, and no more stains from spilling liquid fabric softener.



HOW IT’S USED > ADDED WITH LAUNDRY AT THE START OF THE WASH CYCLE
Why struggle with plastic fabric softener balls, risk staining your clothes or waste time waiting for the rinse cycle? Simply add Purex Complete Crystals Softener directly with our laundry at the beginning of every wash cycle to infuse fabrics with long lasting freshness.






My Take: Ok I must admit when I got the little bottle of this stuff I was a little wary. I mean they are little crystals! And they actually look like that pop rocks candy! I would suggest you keep these way up high out of the reach of kids, especially if you have very curious ones like my two year old! On the other hand I was happy to see that this product is 92% natural!

So I decided to try it out on my towels. the bottle I received was the Fresh Spring Water Scent. WOW! The smell is awesome! The first thing I wondered was whether or not the smell would last on the towels after they had went through the washer and the dryer! The second thing I wondered about the crystals. I have a front loading washer and I was worried that by adding the crystals directly to the load without water that they might fall into the holes in the drum and ruin my washer. So of course I loaded in my towels and tried to strategically pour the crystals on the towels...hehehe.



After washing and drying my load both my questions were answered. First, the crystals didn't ruin my washer. Second, those warm towels smelled so good i couldn't help but sniffing them as I folded them. They even passed the kid test. I wrapped my daughter in her towel when she got out of the tub and all she could say was "YUMM and MMMM". She loved the smell. And it passed the sensitive skin test. My son has very dry and sensitive skin but they obviously didn't irritate his skin in any way.

Buy it: Purex Complete Crystals can currently be purchased at Walmart and will be available in other retailers later this month and the beginning of February. It retails from $3.99 to $5.99. It is also available in three different fragrances: Fresh Spring Waters, Lavender Blossom, and Tropical Splash.
