Dish pan hands?

I've had the great opportunity to try out new products for a pretty cool website called Influenster.com. After signing up, they sent me my first VoxBox (much more quickly than I had ever expected!). Inside were three pretty little bottles of Palmolive dish soap. Of course, the very first thing I did was take a deep smell. I don't know why, but I like my dish soap to smell good. Maybe it's like aromatherapy for me, but I want to be immersed in soothing scents while I slave over the kitchen sink.

I initially tried the green bottle - Lime and Basil - and was really excited. I LOVE those two scents together. It's always so fresh and clean. Sadly, my first sniff left me disappointed. The scent was far too sugary and artificial. It smelled like something a little kid would eat as a piece of candy. Next I tried out the pink bottle - Ginger and White Tea - and was much more pleased. The scent was very mild and subtle. It was more of a neutral scent than anything truly discernible. Far more pleasant than the Lime and Basil. Finally I tried out the Lemon Thyme (the yellow bottle). This one was the winner. It was fresh and clean and smelled like a happy kitchen. Because I can be super critical of new products, I had JD sell each of the bottles without me saying a word. And, despite his less specialized sense of smell (Don't yell at me! Science has proven it!), he came to the same conclusions without any prompting from me. We decided together to give the Ginger and White Tea to My Favorite Married Lady (which I forgot to do last night!) and are donating the Lime and Basil to the school kitchen. 

We haven't had much time to test the soap out beyond smell, but JD did use the Lemon Thyme to soak his grill plate (which are pretty gross!). We'll see how powerful this soap is when I get home tonight. and, of course, a blog post will follow. 

If you are interested in joining Influenster, just shoot me an email and I'll send you an invite. :)

I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.
