It’s a cold rainy morning here in Rhode Island and it is making me long for warmer weather! We hit over 60 degrees yesterday and now I’m dying for spring! One thing I love to do when we get a warm spring day is to open all the windows and clean everything in my house! Nothing beats the smell of fresh air and a clean home. Speaking of clean homes, I wanted to share with you my first experience buying from Grove Collaborative and give you an honest review!
I saw a lot of ads about Grove Collaborative on Facebook and have been wanting to try more natural cleaning products in my home. I went on their website and they had a great deal for first time buyers to get lots of product for an excellent price, so I decided to give it a shot! Upon signing up I was able to get 5 FREE items as well as a free 60 day VIP membership trial which includes free shipping on every order. Free shipping is always a win in my book! I can never bring myself to pay for shipping. Now the offers and deals they have are always changing so you may not recieve the same free items I did. They also may advertise a differnt deal on their website but just try googling Grove Collaborative deals and they usually have others to choose from! That is how i found the best deal for me. I was able to recieve
•1 free Mrs Meyers Dishsoap
•1 free Mrs Meyers Multi-Surface Cleaner
•1 Free Mrs Meyers Hand Soap
•1 free Grove Collaborative Bamboo Prep Board
•1 free 3-pack of Walnut Scouring Pads
Above is a list of everything I ordered, I got all those items for $21.00, so that works out to $2.10 each! You can’t get a price that good anywhere else! I will say to be careful after you sign up with Grove for the 60 day VIP membership. After you make your first purchase it will automatically ship things to your home every month unless you cancel the monthly delivery. They will also pick random things to send you, not just a repeat of your previous order. Some people may like having a monthly delivery but I personally cancelled all automatic deliveries and will just order again when I am ready. Just do what works for you! If you want to keep automatic delivery you can add and subtract things from your order before they ship it out, you can also adjust the frequency of the auto-shipments.
After having all of my Mrs Meyers products for a few weeks now, I can tell you I LOVE THEM! It was hard for me to choose the scents online because you never actually know what they will smell like in person. I purposely chose a variety of scents so that if, for some reason I didn’t like one, at least I’m not stuck with tons of that same scent. The scents I chose were:
I will say there is one scent that I hate…Geranium. Which is a little disappointing because I ordered the handsoap AND lotion in that scent. My friend, I used to work in a greenhouse and spent so many hours planting, watering, and dead-heading hundreds of geraniums and let me just say, that scent does NOT smell like geraniums. It smells like overly potent bug spray…not the good kind either. Now if you like the smell of bug spray then you will absolutely love this scent, but if your like me…DON’T buy it.
Geranium was the only scent I disliked. It’s funny I was so afraid to try the Radish scent because, again, I used to work on a farm and I really didn’t think I wanted to smell like a radish after washing my hands. I only gave it a try because another blogger said it smelled wonderful, and boy was she right. It smells so gloriously fresh, that’s the only way I know how to describe it. I will definitely be purchasing Radish again and look forward to trying it in different Mrs Meyers products (I only have it in the handsoap).
The other scents Basil, Lavender and Rosemary are all wonderful too and I will definitely be purchasing those again as well. They all smell like what they are supposed to!
With these supplies being all natural I was slightly concerned about their effectiveness but that was all for naught. The dish soap and multi-surface cleaner do a fantastic job of getting stuck on foods and grime off and they smell phenomenal too. The fragrance in Mrs Meyers items makes them so worth it, as well as being natural. I love that I can wipe down my daughter’s highchair tray with the multi-surface cleaner and not have to worry about putting her food on it right after, because I don’t have to worry about all the chemicals. It feels so good having a clean, good smelling home and knowing it’s safe for my family!
So all in all, I had a very good experience with Grove and they have SO many other products besides Mrs Meyers and I would definitely order from them again and can’t wait to try new things! I hope this information was helpful to you and that you will give them a try! Have a wonderful day.
