Pinch Me!

June 2017

What is Pinch Me? Register then answer a series of questions about your household and shopping habits in the Member Profile. They learn what you like and offer samples just for you.  Pick samples you are eager to try; samples are only available on their Sample Tuesday which is normally the second Tuesday of the month.  They ship your box full of samples directly to you for free.  Once you’ve had a chance to try your samples, complete a short feedback survey to tell them what you think of the samples.  They let the brands know your thoughts.

These normally take a month to come in the mail so, these products I actually chose in May.

You will always be one month behind in samples and feedback with Pinch Me; annoying but, worth it in the end.  The opportunity to try before you buy!

Purina ONE Smartblend ~ True Instinct:  Grain-free formula; nutrient-dense with real beef and sweet potato.  Specially formulated for ADULT dogs.  If you have a puppy or a pregnant / nursing dog then you can feed them their Healthy Puppy Formula.  This adult formula though has real beef as the #1 ingredient beefing the protein content to 30%; yes, bad pun, I know.  Grain-free means it’s made without corn, wheat or soy and is highly digestible.

 Crunchy kibble triangles made with no artificial colors or flavors made this a win in my books and quickly went into my youngest dog’s stomach.

My older one turned her nose up to it; she is roughly 5 years old and normally eats without distinction so, I found it odd.  We shall see as I am planning on cashing the coupon for a FREE bag of 7.4 lbs tomorrow.

Pure Leaf Iced ~ Black Tea with Peach:  Can be drank hot or cold but, directions call for steeping in hot water for a few minutes then adding ice.  Wonderful aroma of sweet fruit immediately permeates the air when it stars to steep with hot water.  I would most definitely be buying this after having this delicious sample.

Has a bit of a dry and bitter aftertaste; most likely a mix of the root and leaves but, overall fresh and hydrating.  Great hot and cold!



Ingredients:  Black Tea, Rosehips, Hibiscus Flowers, Orange Leaves, Natural Flavor, Lemon Grass, Licorice Root, Dried Fruit (Mango, Peach, Apricot).  Product of Morocco.

Vagisil ~ Odor Block:  I have to say, Vagisil has come a long way over the many decades it has been around; I even remember my mother using.  While I am not a regular customer of this brand, this product was perfect timing with summer heat currently underway.  This product is for EXTERNAL use only and is to be used like regular body wash but, for feminine care areas.

The was has a triple odor protection and is gentle with a light and clean scent; helps stop odor from happening.

Scotch-Brite ~ Lint Remover Roller:  A surprise add-on for Pinchers!  Thirty sheets of Scotch brand adhesive 3M on this handy-dandy roller to help with the summer time shedding of all my fur babies.  My cat sheds non-stop I swear but, my dogs are exact opposites of what one would assume when looking at them.  Eva is my short-haired Terrier mix and Mitzi is my long-haired Terrier mix.  Touch Eva and a cloud of white thick fur explodes off of her while Mitzi doesn’t even need to be trimmed.  The white fur sticks to everything f-o-r-e-v-e-r but, with this roller, cleaning up certain spots (bottom of chair and my clothes) is now much easier.

The sheet rolls are refillable on the lightweight, plastic handle.  Can buy more at Walmart, Amazon, Target, CVS and Walgreens.
