First Gym Session after Having Baby! :: 4/29/2012

Hey All! :)

So Today officially marks the first day of my journey to getting into the best shape of my life. I did go to the gym yesterday but forgot to blog about it, so I decided today is my official day! It's going to be the start of eating more healthy, exercising to get my pre-baby body back AND some! I'm hoping to shed the fat i've gained throughout my pregnancy as well as build some sexy lean muscle.

Yesterday After the gym, Hubby and I decided to get some new kicks! I'll have to take a picture of them, but I ended up getting black and green ones, since the ones I originally wanted - they didn't have. 

Since yesterday was upper body, today was my favorite.. Legs, Legs, LEGS!

here's what I did:

Influenster :: Palmolive Fresh Sponge Dish washing Soap Review

Hi Everyone! 

So I wanted to share this awesome product with you all. I was chosen as one of the Moms to receive this product from is an online website where you sign up (For FREE) and take lifestyle quizzes, complete "challenges" and it will enable you to potentially get a "vox box" or certain products depending if you fit the criteria.  In order to fit certain criteria, you have to complete challenges which unlock badges.. and the more badges you have and depending on how active you are on the website will determine if you will get a vox box or get to participate in cool things like this!

So.. I received the Palmolive Fresh Sponge Dish washing soap to review.  I've been using this in my daily dish washing routine and i've come to the conclusion that this really is a nice soap and does what it claims - freshens your dish sponge! You don't have to worry about stinky raggy smelling dish sponges any longer.

Item: Palmolive Fresh Sponge Soap
Retail Price: $3.29
Where to purchase: and

- Keeps Sponge smelling fresh and clean
- Prolongs the use of your new/fresh sponge
- Does not irritate hands
- Tough on greasy foods/foods that have been left on dishes for long periods of time
- Inexpensive

- I have only found it to work on new sponges (dirty sponges must be thrown out already)
- Only comes in one scent (this didn't bother me, but for those that don't like this fruity fresh scent may not like it)

I typically like to change my dish washing sponge every week, but of course life happens and I forget to on occasion, leaving my sponge smelling awful. Well I tried this on my old sponge and it did seem to get rid of the wet dog/wet rag smell, but eventually it did come back (i'm guessing because it was an older sponge, perhaps 2-3 weeks old! eww i know!)

So I tested it out using a brand new sponge (that they kindly included in the packaging to test out) and it really did keep the sponge fresh! And also cleaned the dishes with ease! (didn't have to scrub the dishes like crazy!) 

What I liked most was that it did what it claimed! kept my sponge fresh so that way the stinky sponge smell did not linger on my hands or on my dishes. Definitely prolonged the life of my dish sponge. It also cleansed the dishes and left them sparkling clean! 

I definitely liked the actual smell of the soap and I loved how well it cleaned my dishes.  I definitely could see myself purchasing this when it hits the stores!


No fuss packaging, just your typical dish soap packaging. so I can't really complain there.


the soap didn't irritate my hands, it cleaned my dishes and left them with a sparkling clean shine. It left my sponge smelling fruity and fresh!


I definitely would recommend this product for those that wash the dishes and are tired of your hands smelling like stinky sponge after you've washed the dishes.  It's a great dish soap and does the job with no problems.  Makes me actually happy to wash the dishes! 

Have you seen this soap at your local store? if so, are you going to pick this up?

FTC: I was given this product complimentary for testing purposes from Colgate-Palmolive via Influenster.  I was not paid/compensated for this review. As always, this is my 100% honest opinion on this product.
