Closed: Purely Products Review & Giveaway

Recently, I was sent a Pocket Purifier and SunMate. These are two great products that I feel are great finds for a mom to use with her family. Let me share with you about the company & products:

Purely Products believes passion at Purely Products runs a twin track. They are focused on meeting the unstoppable groundswell for responsible products for responsible living as we fulfill our heart's mission to help children in need.

Pure and simple, small actions with the right heart can make
big changes.


Do you ever... put your purse on the movie theater floor? Jump on the elliptical at the gym? Grocery shop in flu season? Slice raw chicken on your cutting board? Use the computer everyone has access to? Carpool kids? Throw half-eaten snacks back in your backpack? Use an airplane bathroom? Lay a gym bag on a locker room floor? Pick up the baby's pacifier off the ground? Use a hotel remote control? Let someone use your cell phone?
Clean, healthy living can be like running a germ gauntlet. Pocket Purifier™ puts a wall of defense in your hands with its handheld germicidal light. Lightweight and convenient, Pocket Purifier sanitizes surfaces and objects with the same UV-C light that sterilizes surgical instruments. Ultraviolet light and nanotechnology eliminate 99.9% of germs that cause colds and flu, plus e-coli, salmonella, mold, fungus and MRSA (staph). At home, at work, in public, for all high-touch surfaces, Pocket Purifier is the most environmentally responsible way to kill germs without chemicals - hands-down.

Desktops have almost 21,000 germs per square inch, phones more than 25,000 per square inch (compared to only 49 per square inch on toilet seats). Pocket Purifier™ has a built-in germicidal UV-C lightbulb that deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, destroying their ability to multiply.

UV-C light can be used to eliminate any biological contaminant. Different organisms require varying intensities of UV-C light to sterilize, but any biological microorganism can be eliminated with UV-C, including SARs and MRSA (staph). UV-C light is particularly effective on medicinally resistant microorganisms, because mutations that increase drug resistance do not make the microorganism more resistant to UV-C sterilization.


  • Incorporates ultraviolet light and nanotechnology to eliminate 99.9% of germs that cause colds, and flu, plus e-coli, salmonella, mold, fungus and MRSA staph (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)
  • Built in 4-watt germicidal ultraviolet light deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens destroying their ability to multiply
  • Suitable for purifying masks, kitchen counters, sinks and utensils, bathroom surfaces, computer keyboards, remote controls, cell phones, nail clippers, shoes, clothing, bags, scissors, baby toys, pacifiers, diaper pails, cribs, strollers - most everyday items. UV light will not harm function of surfaces or items disinfected.
  • Powered by 4 (AA) batteries for easy carrying and safe usage (Batteries not included)
  • Convenient, lightweight, quick and easy to use
  • Suitable for disinfecting most everyday items with exposure of 10-15 seconds.
  • Available in convenient single, double and family-friendly four packs
  • UV-C bulb effective for 9,000 hours (click here to order replacement bulb)

The concept of this is great. I have used it at work, used it on the kitchen counter & table, used it on my little man's toys, and I carry it in the diaper bag. They are always sick and passing their illnesses around at work and I do my best to avoid it. 


Purely makes it easier to make monitoring sun exposure for your family a healthy living habit. SunMate™ puts information on the intensity of ultraviolet rays right in the palm of your hand, so you can make preventive decisions on sun care protection. So sun-savvy in fact, the compact, lightweight SunMate was named "Best Beach Tech" by Shape Magazine (May 2009).
But SunMate™ is not just for the beach or pool. Golfing, fishing, snow skiing, boating, softball - any sports; yard work, bicycling, walking, running, hiking, at the park with your kids or at baseball games - any outdoor activity, any day of the year. SunMate™ arms you with a read-out of the sun's UV ray intensity, so you aren't guessing what those cloudy skies might mean to your skin. Knowledge is power, so you can act. Take your "mate" wherever you go.

Simply press the white button at the top of the unit to measure the UV index.
Use the chart below to compare the SunMate™ Indicator Level to the Ultraviolet Index Scale.

The SunMate is a handheld UV-ray intensity reader. Even on a cloudy day, the UV intensity can be high. Living in Florida, we need a lot of sun protection.  We are in the sun, at one point or another, everyday.  I have extremely fair skin and burn when in the sun too long and I need to make sure my little one is not getting too much sun. I'm always concerned about exposure to UV rays. Our SunMate goes to the beach when we do! 


Happy bottom, happy baby!

Children in need often spend days in the same soiled diaper which can lead to serious emotional distress and health problems. There are wonderful organizations that feed, clothe, heal and house children, but a major void exists in meeting the basic, fundamental, hygienic need for an adequate supply of diapers.

Children are the most precious resource on this one precious planet that we all share.
Responsible living to us also means sharing responsibility for children who need our help.
Helping children is our passion at Purely, so we love the bottom line, literally. Purely Products donates a percentage of all company sales to supportdiaperLove™, a non-profit organization founded to provide diapers and hygiene products to children in need. With every Purely Products purchase, you can take small steps that make a big difference towards clean, healthy living and at the same time, make a big difference to a child.

Purely Products is a wonderful company with great  products and a heart that cares about the community.
