Product Review: Easy Off Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner

Disclaimer: I received this product for free from Smiley360 in return for my opinion and sharing.

I tried Easy Off Heavy Duty oven cleaner before Thanksgiving, and I am sold on it! I had used the self-clean function on my oven twice trying to get it clean, but it never seemed to do a good enough job.  

I let the oven get good and grimy inside by cooking all sorts of melty, runny foods like lasagna, pies, and casseroles. I figured if I was going to Do a good review, I should really put it to work!

When I sprayed the Easy Off on, the fumes were pretty strong. I didn't have gloves on at first, so it did sting my skin a bit (stupidity on my part- they advise you to wear them). I let it sit for the required amount of time and used the soft side of a sponge to wipe it out. It was a breeze! I only had to scrub a few stubborn spots, but not many! This is a great product! No more self-clean for this girl!

Influenster VoxBox: Suave Products

I am a member of Influenster, and I just received my first VoxBox- a big box of great products for me to review! :-) This one was from the Suave family of products and contained something for everyone: Men's Refreshing Body Wash, Sweet Pea Body Lotion for me, and Cherry Vanilla Bop mousse for the kids. Fun!

I'm going to be honest...I tried EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT. Yep. All of em. :-) As am matter of fact, so did Elizabeth and William (poor boy...he was stuck with me rubbing him down with my sweet-smelling lotion after bath time. Ah...the joys of being 4! LOL!)

Men's Body Wash:  This soap is probably a man's dream. Everything about it says, "FOR MEN!!!" Seriously...even the soap is blue! LOL! It has a clean, masculine scent, but it isn't so strong that it is overpowering. As I mentioned earlier, I did try it to see for myself just how good it was. I was impressed. My skin felt clean, but it wasn't dried out (which happens all too often with soap). My husband liked it, as did my boys. They even said it was great for washing their hair! (I draw the line at washing my hair with SOAP, thank you.) Another bonus? It's very inexpensive!

Bottom line: Our family (at least the men) has switched over to Suave's body wash for men.

Sweet Pea Body Lotion:  I am a big fan of Bath and Body Works, but it can be pretty pricey...especially as much as I use it. I had just run out of my favorite lotion when my box came, so I was excited to try Suave's lotion. Sweet Pea has always been one of my favorites from B&BW, and I was very pleased to find that it smelled almost EXACTLY the same! The lotion itself was nice and smooth and didn't leave a sticky residue. It had a nice consistency...I was worried that it would be thin and watery, but it wasn't. I really like it...so much so that I find myself reaching for it rather than the B&BW stuff I received for Christmas!

Cherry Vanilla Bop Kid's Mousse:  My boys usually use gel in their hair with good results. However, my nephew has crazy curly hair that can be quite hard to tame, so I was anxious to see how this mousse would work. I did not like the smell, but I've never cared for sweet vanilla scents anyways. The kids loved it, though. I used it in my daughter's stick-straight hair before I curled it and not only did it curl beautifully, it held all day! My nephew's hair was quite tame after I put the mousse in. I liked it better than gel and hairspray because it didn't weigh their hair down or make it crunchy...it had a very sift, natural rexture.

In all, I was very impressed with the Suave products I received, and we have made the switch! :-)
