Jockey & Purex {Review And Flash Giveaway}

If your New Year’s Resolution is to work out more I have a wonderful product to share with you! Jockey‘s Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra is perfect for working out in. It’s made of soft, moisture-wicking and breathable mesh material so it helps you stay dry. I really liked that there is mesh in between “the girls” instead of fabric since I always find that area to get especially hot and sweaty when it’s hot out or I’m working out. There is a band at the bottom that offers support but still keeps the bra comfortable. It seems Jockey has thought of everything since this sports bra also has a convenient key pocket and a reflective logo on the back.

I learned from Jockey that fabric softener shouldn’t be used on performance sportswear because the oil content prevents the  wicking process. I realize now that I have ruined dozens of items because I was not aware of this “rule” and used fabric softener on them. Thankfully, Purex Crystals Fabric Softeners do not contain oil and are safe to use on all laundry {like my new sports bra}. I’ve reviewed Purex Crystals before and shared that I really liked them but had only tried one sent so I was looking forward to trying a new one. Tropical Splash smells wonderful and since the crystals are put in at the start of the wash I will get to smell the scent on my clean clothes for days to come.
