Catching Up and Ivory Influenster Program

I swear, I did not fall off the face of the earth.  Right after I posted that I was back... life got B-U-S-Y!  It is amazing how quickly that happens.  Basically, I got home from the half on Monday.  We had date night on Friday, then the Mister left Sunday, and friends arrived that evening.  But it gets better, then K-Man got sick Wednesday (for the last 4 days) as the friends were leaving.  In other words, I have lots of catching up to do.  Today is the day, and I am vowing to have the following days filled with blogs :).

Easy one first though - I got picked through Influenster to test out a product.  They sent me a full size sample Ivory 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash, along with some coupons to share.  We have been testing it throughout the house for about 2 weeks now.

It started in the Mister's shower.  He is a basic guy and the less products the better.  Shampoo, soap and shaving cream are his essentials.  He liked that it was a neutral smell, and that it could replace 2 products at one time.  However, he does still like his bar soap for the body.  As for hair, his only recommendation would be that it would be better with a pump.  Razor in one hand, pumped soap in another.

Next, we tried it in the kids' space.  It certainly worked as well as any other bath 2-in-1 products we have tried for them, just without the crazy smells.  Why is Banana a desired smell in kids' products?  I just never got that, but I am getting off track!  Again, here I have to share that a pump would be a HUGE help.  Imagine kids in the tub, slick hands and you have to pick up 1.5 lbs of soap to turn over and squeeze.  Gets tricky.

Finally, we decided the real test was in the guest bath.  This is a perfect spot for a 2-in-1 product for a few reasons.  I usually throw out bar soap between guests because I think it seems a bit unsanitary.  Unfortunately, that is a waste of soap.  The second reason it rocks down there is because it lasts FOREVER!  I have guests 1x per month, on average, so I don't have to replace it often or worry about fresh soap or whether or not there is shampoo left.  I have 3 coupons to share.  So drop me an email with your address and I can get one into the mail for you today. 

PS:  Don't forget to check them out on Facebook or Twitter @InfluensterVox @Ivory #Ivory2in1Power.  I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
Stay tuned tomorrow for Day 1 of the 1/2 Marathon Tale :)
