Purex Jockey and Crystals Review and Giveaway!

Recently I was given the chance to review the Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra and Purex Crystals Tropical Splash.  This is what I received in the mail:

The bra itself was very nice, but I will say that the sizes are very small.  I measured for a size Large, but I went for the XL just in case they ran small.  When I received the package, I instantly put the bra on only to find that the XL is way too small for me.  I was a little upset about this.  I guess you can say it'll give me the will to work out more to make it fit, lol.  But just for you guys, I squished myself into it to test it out.  Believe me when I say I had to literally squish into this bra, I barely went over my shoulders.

Here's a few facts about this Jockey Tech Terry Sports Bra:

  • Moisture-wicking to help keep you cool and dry
  • Convenient Key Pocket so you can put your house key in for a quick run around the neighborhood
  • Breathable Mesh 
  • Soft bottom band for comfortable support
  • 93% Polyester, 7% Spandex

Now normally you are not suppose to wash performance sportswear with fabric softener.  Who knew, right?  I didn't.  Apparently the oil content in the fabric softeners prevent the wicking process.  Interesting, huh?  Well that's why we received Purex Crystals Tropical Splash Fabric Softener along with the bra.

Now for a few facts on the Purex Crystals.  I received the Yellow bottle which is Tropical Splash scented.

Purex Crystals does not contain oil, so it can be safely used on all laundry including:

  • Athletic Wear
  • Towels
  • Children's Sleepwear
  • and Everything Else!
Purex Crystals are 92% natural crystals that go in at the start of the wash cycle, so no more waiting to put your softener in!  That's defiantly a bonus in my eyes, it means less time worrying about catching the cycle in time. 

I have tested out the Purex Crystals before in this post: Purex Crystal's Review.

After a few workouts and washes I do believe that Crystals work perfectly on the wicking material of the Sports Bra.  It never stopped keeping me cool and dry, and the Tropical Splash scent of the crystals stood out and made the bra smell amazing after every wash and the scent lasted for awhile.  Overall I would have to give the Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra a C+ since the sizes ran quite small.  And once again I'll give the Purex Crystals an A.  The scent was wonderful and the product did what it was intended to do.

I was given a sample of Crystals by Purex and Jockey Sports Bra to test it out and give my opinion.  I was not paid for my opinion, all opinions on this blog are my own.  This is not a sponsored post.
