J.R. Watkins Naturals Product Review and Giveaway




The first thing I have to say about this company is I LOVE their labels and logo. To me it seems so pioneer days and it should since the company has been around since 1868. I love that it looks like a product mothers of a different generation would have used but at the same time has a modern appeal. I was surprised when my husband commented about how he loved the labels too. Normally he doesn't care about the cleaning products I use as long as they don't smell funny. This time he said they smell awesome, loves how they look and we need to get more when it runs out!
I had the opportunity to review 4 of the J.R. Watkins Naturals products for the Valentine's event. I definitely think loving your family means finding the right home cleaning products that you can all have around you. With my little guy now in our family, my sensitivity to smells that can lead to migraines and my husbands sensitive lungs I have to be careful of the cleaning products I use. With J.R. Watkins I found the perfect cleaning supplies!
The 4 products we reviewed are:


Lemon Liquid Dish Soap

I really enjoyed using this soap. It has a light lemon scent that is very pleasing. Unlike some lemon products that make me feel sick just smelling them. It works great on cleaning too! It worked on cutting grease on my stainless steel pans and was gentle on my favorite Starbucks mug. When I can I try to use dish soap instead of the dishwasher to save on water and electricity costs and this product is a great help.




 Lavender Window Cleaner

This product is wonderful and a headache saver! I have a hard time cleaning some days because I suffer from migraines that are triggered by scents. Often times using other products I find myself having to lay down the rest of the day from an intense headache, but not with this one.
The lavender in this window and hard surface cleaner was heavenly.  Not only did it clean my mirrors and windows sparkling clean but it also allowed me to continue on with my day. I use lavender rubs and lotions to ease the pain of a headache all the time so this was like cleaning and aromatherapy! My husband even joked now I can clean everyday and not complain!

Smells soooo good!
Clean and Aromatherapy




 Aloe and Green Tea Sink Set

This product was my favorite. I loved the little J.R. Watkins holder the set came in. I am always washing my hand through out the day and this set made it so easy to wash then rehydrate. The soap works well on my son's hands too. I worry about drying out his skin when I use dial soap and the chemicals but with this soap I know he is naturally clean! The lotion is wonderful because it is thick and absorbs quickly. There is nothing I hate more than watery lotion! The scent of this lotion was very mild and pleasant.  I think this would make a great gift for a house warming, new parent, mother's day or a birthday.
