Bzz Agent Review-SCJ Products

I recently received a few SCJ Products in the mail a few weeks.  These product consisted of a full size Pledge, Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Foamer, Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel, Glade Sparkle of Spring candle, Glade Scented Oil refill and a coupon booklet.  Now that I have a scented oil refill, I can't locate my Glade scented oil plugins so this means a trip to the store when there is a sale and coupons.  I haven't posted pictures of the products received because as soon as the box was open I put the items to work.  I love SC Johnson products and have used them for years.

I love the scented candle, if I hadn't received this in the mail the likelihood that I would have tried this scent is low.  I usually stick to scents that are easily recognizable like rain or clean linen, but I loved this scent.  I think I will branch out and try other scents that have a spring smell.  

I also have used the Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Foamer, because with six people taking baths twice a daily we needed something that worked without strong odors on a daily basis that was quick.  I have had bad experienced with foamer bath cleaners before, but with this product I was surprised that it started working as soon as I sprayed it and it started foaming.  All I needed was a scrubbing pad to clean the foam off and I was presented with a clean tub.  I really liked how easy it was to use and that it left no residue or unpleasant odor. 

I tried the Pledge on my coffee table and loved the shiny look that it left and the lemon scent was great.  I didn't have an opportunity to clean my bookcase beside dusting or the television carts beside  dusting the wood with a 1 yo trying to constantly "help" mommy, but was pleased with the results.

The remaining two products the Scrubbing Bubbles toilet gels and the Glade Scented oil refill haven't been used yet, but they will be soon.  But I have tired the Scrubbing bubbles toilet gels before and really liked the results from before and unless SC Johnson have changed anything, I am pretty sure that I will still be pleased with the results.

Bzz Agent Review-Factor Tree

I have been a bzz agent since 2006 and in the past five years.  I recently signed up for the chance to try out Factor Tree for a 30 day trial period.  The purpose was to see if this would help my 10 year old daughter prepare for upcoming E. O. G.'s (end of grade) testing for her 4th grade year.  She is an excellent student but has been having minor problems in math.

It was easy to get started and sign up for the free trial (even though I received an email from Factor Tree stating that my trial had expired at least 5 days early). Once registered, the site was easy for my daughter to navigate and it offered her a student tour and for parents who are unsure about if their interested they offer a parent tour.  It was easy to keep track of her progess with the parent dashboard which provided me with a detailed progress of what she completed and her score.

She enjoyed factor tree and was able to take an average of two test within thirty minutes and if she missed any problems I would review with her to make sure she understood what she did wrong and helped her work the problem until it was correct.
