HORMEL GATHERINGS Party Tray – product review

Standard

“I received free product in exchange for my honest review.”

Today, I’d like to share a product that I think you will love for your holiday entertaining and throughout the year! I was selected to try the HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Tray, which I had already been eyeing in the store recently.
I have to be honest and tell you that it was suggested that I throw a game day party using the tray, which is what I normally would have done, but life is anything but normal at my house right now.
Since I was recently released from the hospital and my immune system is weak, my taste testers were my family and myself. We were very impressed!
My husband picked up the Supreme HORMEL GATHERINGS Party Tray at our local Walmart. My son decided that everything (the crackers, meat and cheese) looked delicious except that the tray included olives – he doesn’t like olives.
So what did we think when we taste tested everything? Delicious! The crackers are thin, but very buttery tasting. The meat (2 types of salami) were flavorful and not too salty. The cheese had great flavor and the olives are waiting for more people who like olives to be around me because I don’t want to waste them.
So, what occasions would I use the HORMEL GATHERINGS Party Tray? I can think of a lot of occasions – a game day party, Christmas, New Year’s, graduation parties, I would even take one to my son’s piano recital!
So, if you’re throwing a party or looking for something to take to a party, I highly recommend a HORMEL GATHERINGS Party tray.

Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash & Dial Kids Foaming Hand Soap Review & Giveaway – Win a FREE bottle!

Standard

Dial-Body-Wash

So, life has definitely been busy around my house – so busy, I forgot to pick winners for my Dial Baby Giveaway!  Without further ado, let me tell you who won.  I took all your names to Random.org and put them in and the 2 winners are Scott and Kaitlyn!! Be sure to look for an email from Sweepstakes in Seattle – I’ll need some info from you so I can get your prize on its way to you! Congratulations and thanks to everyone who entered!

I am so excited! I have some new products to tell you about and a giveaway! Two of my readers will each win a coupon for a Free bottle of Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash or Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash (note, it’s one coupon, but you get to choose which product you want for Free – just one product).
This time my son got to be the product tester for me. Even though he’s 14, he tested out the Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash and the Dial Kids Foaming hand soap. The Baby Body Wash is unscented, so that was great for my older kiddo, who would prefer not to smell like a baby! The Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash is watermelon scented (Watery Melon), which is always a big hit at our house!
My son immediately liked the body wash! He thought it made his skin feel soft and it rinsed off well. For me, I appreciated a break from his recent “Manly-scented” body wash. Not that they smelled bad or anything, but they certainly don’t smell like a kid! Too grown-up smelling and a strong scent, too. Unscented was a pleasant change for both of us!

Dial-Hand-Soap
As for the hand soap, it’s great – lots of bubbles, amazing smell and of course, does a good job cleaning your hands and rinsing off easily! Both these products got a big “thumbs up” from my son.

Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap Review & Giveaway – Winners!

Standard

Dial-Soap-Giveaway

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway!  I loved hearing how you pamper your hands.  I wish I could give everyone a coupon to try this great soap, but I only have two to give away.  I took all your names to Random.org to choose the winners fairly.  The two winners are: Hilary and Theresa!  Congratulations, ladies!  I will be contacting you via email to get your mailing addresses.

I’m so excited about the newest product that I’ve just tested out for Dial and Purex Insiders! It is fabulous and two of my readers will get to try it for themselves because I’m giving away two coupons for a FREE bottle.
I got my bottle of Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub hand soap a week or so ago and I opened it immediately.It’s the the newest member of the Dial® Boutique Collection Hand Soap line.  It smelled so yummy! And it works, too! It’s designed to gently exfoliate your hands when you wash them and that’s exactly what it did. My hands felt softer after using it. It reminded me a little of the homemade sugar scrub I made for gifts this last Christmas, except it has soap in it with the scrub. Not only did I like this new soap, my family thought it rocked, too!
So, on to the giveaway – two lucky readers will each receive a coupon to try a bottle of Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap for FREE!

Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash Review & Giveaway – Win a coupon for a FREE bottle!

Standard

Dial-Miracle-Oil-Body-WashI love trying new things, don’t you? Recently, I had the opportunity to try out the new Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash. Two of my readers will also get the chance to try out this body wash, too! (Giveaway details below).
I was excited to try this body wash. It’s infused with Marula Oil.My legs have had pretty dry skin this winter and I was curious to see if it helped with the dryness. It did, but just a little.
The scent was okay, but not really a scent that I would choose for myself (I’m hoping they introduce some more scents in this line). The good news about the scent is that it didn’t stay strong all day, it faded and was very mild.  The body wash left my skin soft and not greasy at all – it rinsed off and didn’t leave a residue like some body washes do.
Overall, I liked the new Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash, but I didn’t love it as much as I’ve loved some of their other body washes.
Would you like to try a bottle for yourself and see if you love it? Two of my readers will each win a coupon for a FREE bottle of Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash!
