AT HOME WITH J.R. WATKINS
I am so excited to be here with JR Watkins today. As a fun little back story, they were the very first brand collaboration that I ever did here on Living with Landyn and they hold a special spot in my heart because of that. Not to mention that they are an awesome Minnesota based company that I really fell in love with when we lived there for seven years. I am a complete sucker for good packaging and I was drawn in initially by their beautiful packaging. Once I tried the products I realized they were so much more than just good packaging and I have been hooked ever since. I am so glad I get to introduce this brand to those of you who might not have experienced the fabulousness that is JR Watkins. We are going to take a little tour around the house and I am going to show you all the different ways you can use JR Watkins products in your own home.
IN THE KITCHEN
Natural products have been become really trendy the past few years. I feel like every brand I know is now trying to reformulate their brand to have an all natural version of their product. The cool thing about JR Watkin's products is that they have been all-natural since the very beginning; all the way back in 1868 when the brand was born. I absolutely love their dish soap. Not only do I love how it looks sitting on the counter (remember my package design obsession), but it really works well and smells AMAZING! My all-time favorite scent is their aloe and green tea scent. It is hard to find sometimes, so whenever I see it at Target I literally scoop up every product I can get my hands on. It is so fresh and bright, but not overpowering, which I love. They sent me some of their Lavender scented products and I am really loving that scent as well and would highly recommend it.
I actually didn't realize this until I started researching for this post, but JR Watkins has a FULL line of cleaning products, like literally everything you could ever need to clean your house. They have all-purpose cleaners, laundry detergents, title and grout cleaners, dish soaps...even toilet bowl cleaner. Another fun fact is that they have all kinds of cooking items too-spices, extracts, seasonings, food coloring, basically anything you need to cook and bake in your kitchen. I haven't tried any of these before, but I will totally report back in full when I do.
IN THE BATHROOM
Little known fact about me, I have VERY sensitive skin when it comes to added fragrances in most body soaps and body washes. I start itching uncontrollably as soon as I step out of the shower. I have to use a very mild bar soap to keep my skin from reacting. Honestly I was a little bit nervous to try their body wash for the first time because I assumed I would have a reaction. I am very happy to report that I was able to use their body wash and had absolutely no itchiness at all. So if you have sensitive skin like I do I highly recommend trying out their products and seeing if they work for you. I was happyily surprised that they worked for me.
We will not go in to too much detail here, but let's just say that every bathroom can use a good room spray. I love that they are really light and not overpowering, but they still make the room smell so much fresher. I highly recommend them if you have little boys (or big boys) who are not always as great with their aim in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. #whydoesitalwayssmelllikepeeinhere
ON MY BEDSIDE TABLE
This next product is actually the one I am most excited to tell you guys about. As I was selecting products for JR Watkins to send me to try out, I added this anti-aging hand cream almost as an afterthought. I am SO glad that I did. Guys this stuff is awesome! I don't know if it is because of my background as a nurse, but I am constantly washing my hands and it totally shows. They are always dry and I feel like I have tried almost every hand cream on the market. This cream seems to almost react with your body temperature as you are rubbing it it. It feels like it is really sealing in the moisture. The cool thing is is that when you rub your hands together after you have applied it it almost feels like it is reactivating and you can rub it back in. Does that make any sense? If it doesn't, just believe me when I say you have to try it for yourself. I am all for anything that makes my hands look younger!
