Purex Crystals and Jockey Sports Bra {Review & Giveaway}

Did you know that liquid fabric softeners contain softening oils that can damage your moisture wicking workout garments? I certainly DID NOT know that! 

Thanks to Purex Crystals, I no longer need to worry. Not only does Purex Crystals infuse long-lasting freshness into fabric fibers, but it is made of 92% natural crystals that won't harm my workout clothing material. {yeah!}

So when I found out that Purex Crystals was teaming up with Jockey, it made perfect sense. First some important facts about Purex Complete Crystals Softeners.

Purex Complete Crystals Softeners are 92% natural, not oil-based, so instead of coating fabrics with oil, they work by penetrating the fabric and infusing fibers with freshness that last for weeks, not days. (yep, love that)

Using Purex Complete Crystals Softeners instead of traditional liquid fabric softeners will ensure your towels stay fresh and absorbent. (yes, fabulous)

Purex Complete Crystals Softeners is the first major fabric softener that is 100% safe to use on children's sleepwear as it does not impair these flame retardant qualities. (um, do we actually need another reason to use Purex Complete Crystals Softeners)

Purex Complete Crystals Softeners does not inhibit wicking fabrics, making it safe to use on all of your active and athletic wear.

How Purex Complete Crystals Softeners works.

Purex® Complete Crystals Softener dissolves & penetrates fabrics to reduce fiber entanglement while smoothing frayed fibers creating a naturally soft feel.

ace and friends thoughts: I received a sample of Purex Crystals Softener in Tropical Splash as well as a super soft Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra. The sports bra features the cool moisture-wicking technology that wicks the moisture away from your body. 

A perfect opportunity to test out the Purex Crystals Tropical Splash Softener. I wore my Jockey Sports bra to a step class at the gym and admittedly it had great support. I thought it fit pretty true to size. The material was quite soft and very comfortable. It did a great job at wicking the moisture away from my body during my workout.

My biggest concern with the softener was whether or not the smell would be overpowering? Straight out of the container... smell = strong. So, of course, I was a bit leery. Well, I loaded up the washing machine with all of my workout gear and gave it a whirl. Wash, wash, wash... long story short... the fragrance diffused into the fabric of the clothes,  to my surprise final result... workout wear smells fabulous!
