Bzz...Scrubbing Bubbles Mega shower foamer

Let me preface this post by saying, I HATE, DETEST, LOATHE cleaning the bathroom. It is just not an enjoyable thing to do. My shower is enclosed by glass on 3 sides. Not that I am complaining, but my shower is huge. It's not easy to clean. I actually have to step into it to clean it. So products with a strong chemical smell are the worst, because the smell gets trapped in there, and almost suffocate me.

I have tried so many different products, but I think we have a winner. As mentioned in my previous post, I love Scrubbing Bubbles products. They are so easy and fun to use. They have definitely stepped up and made an amazing product.

I like that you can see where you spray, so there are no missing spots, so I can be certain that my shower is fully clean.
The smell: it is not as strong as other products I've used. I can stand in the shower for longer than 2 minutes at a time, and completely clean my shower all in one shot.
Quality of work: I was honestly amazed! I usually have to put a lot of elbow grease to clean the glass. I didn't with this product. I simply wiped it down with a sponge and the water spots were gone. It was so easy and effortless.

I will definitely buy this product again, and I will tell everyone who wants to hear about it, how wonderful it is. Thankfully BzzAgent sent some coupons for it, so I can get some for myself, and share some of the coupons too.

I'll post my review of some of the other products in a few days.

This product was received as a sample from BzzAgent. I was not paid for this review, this is honestly how I feel about the product.

Vocalpoint...RSVParty...P&G Beauty Products

The good news (and free products to test) keep on coming. I was just chosen to host an RSVParty through Vocalpoint.

They are send me these cool party favors:
  • Over $500 worth of P&G beauty products to share with friends from COVERGIRL®, Pantene®, Olay® and more.
  • Special gifts to share with my friends.
  • Valuable coupons to use and share.

All i have to do is invite at least 5 friends the week of May 8th. (that's easy to do - I am envisioning a "Girl's Night In event - definitely need that.) The party kit will get here sometime during the week of May 1.

Gotta start planning!

This Week's Adventures...3/10/11

I would say overall it's been a good week. We didn't NEED all the things we got, but we added to our reserve (I don't really like the work stockpile.)

1. Publix: Got $150.99 worth of stuff and spent $38.23 out of pocket. About a 74% savings. And it wasn't all junk. I got some meat, veggies, cheese , dairy, olive oil, lunch meat from the deli counter, some cleaning supplies. and a couple other random things. And in the end, I have a $10 gift card to use next week. (My hubby does the major food shopping , and I always forget to tell him to take a pic for me.)

2. CVS: Transaction #1: 4 Wisk 50 oz laundry detergent, 1 Revlon nail polish, 2 Skors candy bar, 1 Dove candy bar, 1 small, single serve Frosted Flakes, and a Wild Cherry Pepsi. I paid $10.54 out of pocket, and saved $38.54. I got $7 extra care bucks (ECB) for next purchase.

3. CVS: Transaction #2: 2 John Frieda Shampoos, 3 small, single serve Kellogg's cereal. I paid $0.84 out of pocket, and saved $17.28. I got $3 extra care bucks (ECB) for next purchase.

4. CVS: Transaction #3 : 2 Gallons of TG Lee Milk. I paid $3.38 out of pocket, and saved $4.00 And I still have $2 extra care bucks (ECB) for the next time I go back to CVS. So, after everything was said and done, this is the breakdown:
Total purchased: 225.57
Total Out of Pocket 52.99
Total Saved: 172.58 or about 75% savings

And I had some time to kill this morning so I went to Publix, I found the Sargento's Jack cheese I had coupons for, but couldn't find at my usual store. I got four packs, and a single serve package of Oreos for $0.50. (I always feel bad walking out not paying anything, so I get the cheapest thing i find.)

Oh No, I'm officially old : - (((

This is what I got in the mail yesterday.

SheSpeaks...Johnsonville Italian Sausage

The package (envelope actually) for the Johnsonville Italian sausage program just got here. I added it to my shopping list for today and I will be having it for dinner tomorrow.

They provided a booklet with several recipes, there is one for meatballs that I want to try. (I'll take a pic when I'm done and share my opinion later.)

SheSpeaks is another word-of-mouth (WOM) that is really good. They have introduced me to several new products I have come to love. Give it a try. It is nice that these companies give the consumers, in this case women consumers, the chance to speak their mind, and possible change a product for the better.

Bzz. I got my SC Johnson Kit

Next to the HTC HD7 campaign, this is my favorite BZZcampaign so far. SC Johnson is one of my favorite companies. I love the scrubbing bubbles line of products. So I was ecstatic to get accepted into this campaign.

These are the products the kit included:
* 4 oz Glade Spring collection candle
* Glade plug-ins scented oil refill
* Pledge lemon spray
* Scrubbing Bubbles (yay!) mega shower foamer
* Scrubbing Bubbles (double yay!) toilet cleaning gel kit.

I set out immediately to use these products. Here are some pics of them in action.

I LOVE candles, so I immediately opened it, the scent was sparkle of spring.

It was time to change the scented oil, so the refill came at just the right time. It smells amazing.

The Scrubbing Bubbles toilet cleaning gel kit looked cool, so I had to play with it. The first pic at the bottom is what it looks like in the toilet. Weird looking, but it smells great.

I cannot wait to try the rest of the products. I know I'll love them like I love the rest of the package.

If you haven't tried BzzAgent yet, give it a try. It is definitely worth your effort. They have campaigns on all kinds of cool stuff. I've gotten juice, bagels, a phone, cleaning product, etc. to try out. I know of people who have gotten into the makeup ones, there's some for coffee, bras, and the list goes on.
