I am truly excited to be selected by Influenster to receive three full sized, 16oz bottles of the new premium dish soap called Palmolive Fresh Infusions! If you would like to know more about Influenster is, check out this post I wrote about them here.
For many years I was a hardcore Reeva dish soap user. It cuts the grease, didn’t destroy my hands – it pretty much got the job done until I used Palmolive dish soap. Palmolive did the same job as Reeva but with much less soap used. I would go through one bottle of Reeva every month and with Palmolive, one bottle will last me a few months. Long story short, I haven’t looked back since.
I’ve been using Palmolive Fresh Infusions for one week and here are my thoughts:
The packaging: Quite different than their signature shaped bottles but still effective. I have no problem with handling the bottles.
Scents: Ginger White Tea has a floral scent with a touch of ginger in the background; Lime Basil (my fav!) has a very citrusy scent. The lime is very pronounced with a hint of basil, and then there’s Lemon Thyme, a very light scent and pretty much bland. Except for Lemon Thyme, they smell REALLY good and permeate the kitchen when using it.
***Just want to mention if you have a sensitive nose, you may not like Lime Basil since it is the strongest scent out of the three. You may really like Lemon Thyme though.***
I gave away the Lemon Thyme to a neighbor along with 2 coupons saving $1.50 each (the soaps came with 5 coupons) if she were to purchase Palmolive Fresh Infusions. She said she really likes the smell!
Performance: The consistency is thinner than their predecessors, but cleans dishes really well. And talk about suds galore! You seriously do not need a lot. About a dime size and you’re good to go. You can always add more if necessary. I actually use Palmolive Fresh Infusions as a perfume after the pots and pans have been de-greased using Palmolive Oxy Power Degreaser.
The hands test: Not rough on the hands at all and THAT is a major plus!
Cost: They’re $2.96 each at Walmart.
Will I purchase? Absolutely!
