The next best thing since sliced bread...

Hi Bellas,

This post isn't exactly makeup related, but I wanted to share with you guys a product that I've come across and I find absolutely amazing!

Introducing...Poo-Pourri! Funny title huh? The name says it all...it's basically a deodorizer spray for when you go number 2. Unlike most air fresheners, you spray Poo-Pourri before you "take a seat". Spray 4-6 squirts directly into the toilet bowl water beforehand, and voila! No fumes are emitted during the process. Instead, you're left with a citrus fresh blend of Lemon-grass, Bergamot, Grapefruit and other natural essential oils that leave the bathroom smelling clean and fresh!




I created my own focus group for testing out this product including: the BF, my bro, my bestie Sai, her BF and myself. After getting back feedback, it worked on all of us - girls and guys alike. My bestie's BF who's a PHD student at Georgia Tech explained that the milky liquid coats the toilet water to trap the methane gases. Makes sense right?

Another benefit of this product is that the manufacturer gave it ultra cute packaging. You can stick it in your bathroom and not worry about it looking odd or out of place.

I love this product so much I gave it out as a stocking stuffer to my friends and family. It's such a cute idea...I mean everyone has a use for it.

I'm going to give away 5 travel sized versions of Poo-Pourri to stick in your purse for when you're on the go. This is perfect for bringing with you to the office or random public restrooms...it's brilliant! No more fear of causing embarassing bathroom blunders.




Check them out at http://www.poopourri.net/. They offer a 30 day absolute money back guarantee if this product doesn't work for you. They also offer other versions of the spray including the "Royal Flush" which is designed in a more masculine container for the hubbies out there. Other scents and gift packages are also available on the website.



Leave a comment and I'll pick 5 of you at random to receive the spray. I'll announce the winners tomorrow!

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

I think my brother met someone on a plane that invented this or was close to the person who invented it like 4 years ago. He gave my brother these really tiny samples to try out. I can't remember if it worked for my brother.

nyricangirl916 said...

You are too cute. Not only are your makeup tutorials and reviews are great. Nothing is off limit. You are so real and true to thyself. Very refreshing. Take Care.

tmoney said...

I have recently become an avid fan of your work and actually decided to create my own blog. Something that I find interesting about this giveaway is the fact that you didn't want/need a funny story about an experience that we had with number 2!! Laugh. Instead you are giving it away at random. Which I do think is valid and fun, but I was really wanting to hear some funny stories. Take care and keep in mind that I love your work!! I even got MUF 92, I wore it on Friday and people loved it!

Suzylove said...
