Well it has been a while since I have received anything from She Speaks.  They completely changed the way their website was set up so I honestly didn't even know if they did product testing anymore.  Imagine my surprise when they sent me an email saying that I might qualify for a selection of some of the most loved products from P&G (Procter and Gamble)!  Everybody got different products and some lucky bloggers got a biiiig box full (lucky them!).  The items that I got were the Dawn Hand Renewal with Olay, the Venus & Olay razor (with an extra pack of refills), the Gillette Fusion Proseries soothing moisturizer, and a Covergirl Perfect Point Plus self-sharpening eye pencil.  

All of these products were new to me except for the Dawn Renewal.  When it first came out, there were $1 off coupons in the P&G Brandsaver (one of the Sunday newspaper coupon inserts) just about every month and Dawn goes on sale for $1 at CVS very often.  So I had a free stock of the stuff for the longest time (I still have some left since we use the dishwasher for most things).  The product really does leave your hands feeling softer than other dish soaps.  While I like it, it does not have the ultra power of the original blue Dawn (no other brand or other version of Dawn does either) so for certain heavy duty tasks, I still have to have that around.  But on a regular day to day washing basis, you don't need that much grease cutting power and this detergent works lovely.  I love Dawn's apple scent so I think it would be amazing if they could come up with an apple scented dish detergent with the Olay moisturizers in it. 
PictureA look at the moisture bars

             The first thing I noticed about the razor when I opened it up was the scent.  It smelled soooo good that I sat there smelling it over and over.  I'm pretty sure my husband thought I was nuts because he kept giving me weird looks.  It's ok, it smelled amazing.  It fit in my hand nicely and moisturized very well.  The only problem was that since the head is so big (because of the moisture bars), it missed some spots around my knees and ankles.  So I now have a love/hate relationship with it because of this.  I have a more thorough comparison of this and the Schick Hydro Silk razor that I got free from BzzAgent coming up within the next couple of days.

The Gillette Fusion Proseries soothing moisturizer is an after shave moisturizer.  My husband doesn't generally use after shave products but since this came free, he used it.  Hours later, his skin was still soft even though the prickles were starting to come in.  Normally his skin will be dry a while after shaving and if it is in the winter, it sometimes even starts to flake.  After using this product, his skin was soft without being oily.  I haven't priced this product yet so I'm not sure if it is worth it's price but he did think "it was fine." You love his enthusiasm right?

              I have not tried the eye pencil yet.  It looks pretty awesome though.  One side has the "self-sharpening pencil" that I assume twists up and then the other side has a smoothing tip to be able to blend the color.  The product says that it is a long lasting liner that is water resistant.  I don't wear makeup (besides lip stuff) often which is why I haven't tried it but it looks promising.  I have used similar types of eye liners and liked them.
