Review: Playtex® Sport Body Wipes

I applied and was accepted to do a Sample and Share for Playtex's new Sport Body Wipes through in exchange for my honest review of the product.  I received:
  •  3 packs of 4 Playtex® Sport Body Wipes (For myself and friends to try)
  • 1 Playtex® Sport Body Wipes Pamphlet
Description of the product:   Playtex® Sport Body Wipes are designed to be tough enough to remove dirt and sweat, but gentle enough to use on your entire body. The wipes can be used to clean yourself after workouts, practice, or any time you want to feel refreshed. Sport Body Wipes come as individually wrapped wipes and provide a simple way to feel fresh, clean and confident all day, every day.

Review:  I have been looking for a product like this for a long time.  I always feel icky leaving the gym and I'm not able to rid the feeling until I get home to take a shower.  The sweat dries on your skin and it's gross, so I was very excited to try a product that could keep me smelling good and feeling comfortable until I'm able to get to a shower.

The first thing I noticed about the product is that it comes in a small, convenient, and stylish package.  It was easy to open (was perforated  and labeled "tear here") and fit well in my purse making it accessible in times of need (gym, the beach, day trip to the zoo, working outside, ect.).  I also loved the pink and green coloring (my wedding colors!).

Before I used the product, I decided to do a dance workout DVD to get nice and sweaty.

Don't think I usually smile during workouts (except when the lady on the DVD tells me too!), that is all for the camera. ;)

After my workout, I tore the package open and applied the wipe to my body.  It felt very cool/refreshing and smelled clean (a cool cucumber fragrance).  I was hesitant to use it on my face because it is such a sensitive area, but I went ahead and took the plunge anyways.  It seems to work great on my skin (including my face); no irritation or breakouts from the use of the product.

My body felt great after the product dried.  The wipes are alcohol free and therefore don't dry your skin out like other similar products.  They also did not leave my body feeling sticky.  I felt clean and smelled good...exactly what I would want from a body wipe.

The wipes themselves are soft and durable.  They are a good size and can cover a large amount of area on your body.  You can flush them down the toilet or throw them in the trash can when you are done.

Overall, I love the Playtex® Sport Body Wipes!  They did their job of making me feel clean and refreshed, wiping away sweat and dirt.  The only thing I would change would be for the wipes to come in a variety of scents.  While I enjoyed the scent it came in, I would prefer a floral scent.  (Though once the wipe dries on your skin the scent is very faint anyways.)

Treasures of Fort Pulaski and Tybee Island

With the recent weather change, I can't think of anything much better than soaking up the sun while discovering new places and sights.  My brother, Steven, came to town this week and we had great fun exploring Fort Pulaski and Tybee Island.  It was our first time visiting Fort Pulaski and we were impressed by the beauty and history of the fort.  It was Steven's first time to Tybee Island and my fourth.  Every time I go to the island I discover something new.  This time I was amazed by the kiteboarders flying across the water, horseshoe crabs, and starfish.  The marine life will "wow" you and the people couldn't be nicer.

Here's some photos from our day trip:

Disney on Ice

April 9th, 2011: Disney on Ice!

The family was able to get together for an afternoon showing of Disney on Ice two Saturdays ago!  Everyone in this family LOVES Disney, so expectations were high.  The overall opinion of the show was that is was ok.  Those who had seen it last year said it was better then.  The plethora of characters was superb, they just need a more interesting story line to tie the whole show together.  The theme was "celebrations", but it all seemed a bit thrown together haphazardly.  The kids liked the show, but kind of got a little bored in the middle.  And the skating was ok too...We've seen better at theme-parks like Bush Gardens and SeaWorld...though I can understand most of the characters not being able to do much in their big costumes.  We still had a lot of fun though and would go again.  My $10 cotton candy was delicious, lol.

Exploring Savannah & Tybee Island

I absolutely love exploring Savannah/Tybee Island with family and friends.  There is always something to do and the areas are gorgeous!  Since I didn't update in March here is a gathering of pictures taken out and about during February and March.
