#GIVEAWAY (ends 1/20) @Purex Crystals and @Jockey terry sports bra

I told you earlier today how much I love being a Purex Insider. I have had some great opportunities, and this might be my favorite! Purex and Jockey have teamed up!

Why you ask have the 2012 Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra and the 2012 Purex Crystals teamed up? Well, Did you know that normally you should not use fabric softener on performance sportswear because the oil content prevents the wicking process? Well, you CAN use the Purex Crystals fabric softeners because they do not contain oils!!

What are these products?

The Jockey 2012 Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra is a performance sprotswear for working out. It has moisture wicking to keep you cool and dry (LOVE), a key pocket, reflective logo, breathable mesh panels and a soft bottom band for comfort.

The Purex Crystals fabric softener are a favorite at this house (you can read my first review of it here). We have tried all the different smells and love them all. I am so glad to note that my favorite, the Tropical Splash, is back. These sweet little crystals can be used on baby sleep wear, athletic cloting with wicking and really just about any washable fabric because they contain no oil!

What did I think?

Let me start with the Crystals because my opinion of these continues to be fantastic! I like them more and more the more I use them! And I am not the only fan in the house. My kids LOVE them-even more than I do. In fact, when I was in Chicago a few months ago with my husband, they ran out of crystals and freaked out! My sister who was watching them said she actually went to get new crystals (though she had been avoiding the store entirely with all the kids) because the kids were so concerned that the laundry REALLY NEEDED them! So, I think I can safely say we are fans at the Beckee's Deals house!

I do want to mention that there is a promotion that I love on the Purex site right now where you can "Find the Yellow to Win Green." That means if you go to Purex here and search for the yellow bottle (Tropical Splash) near you, then you can enter to win some moolah!

Now about the bra. First, LOVE that I got a black one! I just  like it-personal preference I guess!

Second, you may or may not be aware that I have a 9 month old and I am nursing him. And, I am not a big fan of nursing bras. At this point he is not nursing that often (usually), so I just wear a "normal bra" and pull it up to nurse. This can get tricky with the hard underwire on my bras, but he doesn't nurse that often during the day. Usually...BUT, the child has chicken pox. (Yes chicken pox-you read that right) and he is nursing almost nonstop this week. So, my regular bra started to hurt. Boy, was I glad to have this new Jockey bra! It fits comfortably and the soft bottom makes it so I can nurse my baby without being in pain and without wearing a nursing bra.

Last, I have been trying to work out and lose this baby weight until about a month and a half ago when I sprained my ankle. Well, it is still a bit sore, but I am now going back to the gym. This bra is perfect for those sweaty workouts. It is REALLY comfortable, the wicking really works well, and it is surprisingly supportive (surprisingly only because it is so light and thin that I doubted it's support value-my bad).

So what is the deal?

The deal is, I recommend this bra for anyone that might have a sweaty job ahead, or if you just want a comfortable sports bra! Best part? Right now you can get 20% off this great sports bra. (To get the discount just go to the link.)And when you are picking up a 2012 Jockey Tech Terry Perfoemance Sports bra, stop by and grab one of my favorite products, the Purex Crystals! They are both great products and when paired together seem to be a match made in heaven.

What is not to love. The bra looks so comfortable and the crystals are great for "This Girl" who never remembers to put the fabric softener in...or measure the detergent. :)
