I received this package from Purex Insiders a few days ago and I couldn’t wait to try it but I  had just finished laundry and had to wait .   I finally was able to try them out today though.   I have always been a fan of Purex laundry items and I especially love the Crystals because they leave your clothes smelling so fresh and clean for weeks.


First off,  I have to say how awesome these smell straight from the bottle…..as soon as I opened them, the whole room smelled fabulously fresh!  They definitely named this one well.   I even like the color of the crystals and they smell as nice as they look….like a little slice of Spring.  They have a vaguely flowery smell but mostly it’s just a fresh outdoorsy scent that I think would be pleasing to most.   And they’re not too “feminine” smelling to use on all of your family’s clothes either.  I do wish they weren’t limited edition though because I do really like this scent and will miss it when it’s no longer available.   Maybe with enough feedback they will decide to keep it permanently…..I can certainly hope anyway!



I used the Crystals  in a load of clothes (along with my Purex detergent and Fabric sheets of course) and they had that whole section of our house smelling wonderful.  Moving them to the dryer triggered the scent again and the dryer heat working with the scent  really made the house smell great!   They seemed to make the clothes feel softer too and that’s always a plus.  I personally love this new scent and highly recommend that you give it a try.  I haven’t had a chance to tell if this scent will last for weeks as it says,  but I do know that previous scents I have tried did last a long time, so I expect this one will also.   There is nothing better than pulling your favorite article of clothing over your head and having it smell wonderful when you do  🙂





Purex gave me a few coupons and I decided to give one to a lucky fan.   For a chance to win you just have to tell me,  in the comment section below-not on Facebook,  why you need some “Fabulously Fresh” in your life…..do you have a messy baby,  smelly pet or worse….a smelly husband or wife?    Or maybe you, yourself could use a little freshening up?   Just tell me why you should be picked to win and that will be your entry.   I will begin this giveaway as soon as I post this and it will run until Monday  March 24th 2014 at 8 pm Central time.  (9 pm. Eastern).   I will give everyone’s comment an entry number and after closing the game  I will use Random Number Generator to choose a winner.   The winner will have 24 hours to claim their prize.  If not claimed in 24 hours I will have to  pick a new winner and I really don’t want to do that so please check back to see who won so you don’t miss out if it was you!    GOOD LUCK!  Share this giveaway with a friend too please.

*Only one comment  per person.   No random comments will count-you have to answer the question to have a valid entry.   You must  also be a fan of Bella’s Blog on Facebook to be eligible*


(I received these products from Purex Insider in exchange for my honest opinion and the fact that they gave me these items had no influence on this review.)

  49. Cynthia Dubuque says:

    I need “Fabulously Fresh” in my life because I have all of the above! My messy kids, with dirt and jelly on their clothes, play with our smelly dog, the smelly dog odor gets trapped on their clothes and then they hug and play with my fiance and I, spreading the odor even farther.

  50. Boy do I need these! My husband works at pizza hut, so you would assume that he comes home smelling like deLicious pizza, but there is a horror story in this tale! He does not smell like pizza at all! Instead, because he worked all day he has the regular dirt and grime smell, but also because they serve wings and have the fryers going constantly, he smells like old, used frying oil! This cloying smell is so bad that I have to bag his uniform for the next wash!
