Pentel Pens review

Pentel WOW Ballpoint Retractable Pen
Here is my son enjoying the new Pintel pens. His favorite color is blue, but I think he left this one in his locker.  He says they write extremely well and he loves the notebook clip on it. The advanced blend of super-smooth roller ball and gel ink glides across the paper with ease.  He also loved the ribbed, and no slip, latex-free grip that is designed for comfortable writing.  But you do have to remember to remove the plastic tip cover before using :).  I really like these pens and the wonderful fun colors that they come in.  I'm always looking for a pen and now I have good quality pens in a variety of colors to choose from.  If you would like to learn more about these pens click Here

Here is his elephant picture that he drew using these Pentel ENERGELX pens.  These came in a pack of eight but everyone wanted one for their own.  So here are the ones that were left behind for me.

I also received 2 Pentel Pens 05 and 07

  • High performance ink technology combines the best qualities of liquid and gel ink for a super-smooth writing experience
  • Gel ink dries so fast even left-handed writers love it - no smears, no smudges, no globs

Dry Idea AdvancedDry Roll-On


When I received Dry Idea Advanced Dry Roll-On deodorant , I was pretty skeptical because I really don't like to mess with my deodorant  and was afraid that the smell would be overpowering.  And even though the ball of the roll on looked wet it went on dry.   I decided to use it the day my family and I went to the zoo and even though it was frigid cold I still found myself sweating as I climbed the hills at the zoo. Or when I tried to race my son to the top of the hill. Mind you I am out of shape but now I know that I can work on exercising also without the embarrassment of not staying dry.   I was tired and sweaty but  I was pleasantly surprised to find my under arms were still dry.   I'm definitely going to give it a work out when we go to the Smokies in Tennessee and go hiking this summer.  I really like this new Dry Idea roll on deodorant  and would highly recommend it.  I will definitely take this with me when I visit my mom in Orlando Fl this summer.
