Below I've gathered reviews of the new Snuggle Scent Boosters product.
Don't let the name "Snuggle" confuse you though. This isn't a fabric softener at all. Instead, it is merely a laundry scent booster, so the sole purpose of this product is to infuse additional scent into your clothes as you wash them.
If you want to soften your clothes you'd have to use an additional product for that purpose.
In wash scent boosters have become very popular recently, first starting with Downy Unstopables, and expanding to include other similar products such as Gain Fireworks and Purex Crystals (although the crystals are a fabric softener as well).
Unlike some of these other products though Snuggle has decided to also use a new craze amongst laundry products, and has made this scent booster packaged into pacs or pods.
Many people love these laundry pacs because you don't have to measure. Just throw them into the load and you're done.
So the idea behind this new product is to just throw one pac into the wash with your clothes and then when you pull them out, you'll have heavily scented laundry.
There are currently two scents available, Lavender Joy (purple packaging shown above) and Blue Iris Bliss (which I think looks like kind of a turquoise colored packaging).
Some people love adding all this scent, but I'd like to warn everyone now that with the rise of these in wash scent boosting products I've personally seen a rise in laundry detergent allergic reactions.
Here's some example pages of similar products where people have complained of these allergies (and don't miss the review below which has the same complaint!)
The reason for all these allergy stories is because one of the main culprits of these allergies, which can range in symptoms from hives, rashes, itching, sneezing, and more, is scent. So if you're purposefully adding scent to a product, a known allergen, especially even more of it then you are normally used to, it stands to reason you'll see lots of allergic reactions!
I've found with regard to scent that there can be too much of a good thing. For example, some people cannot handle any added scent at all (that includes my family). While others only experience problems when they go overboard with these products.
That's where there are advantages and disadvantages to the pacs this product comes in. On the one hand, using a pac prevents you from dumping way more of this product into your machine then recommended.
On the other hand, if you find the amount of scent the pre-measured pac provides way too strong there is no easy way to cut back on it by just adding less to subsequent loads. You can't easily add half a pac, for example.
I'll tell you right now that I have not personally tried this product (although I do have reviews below from people that have), and I will not.
I do not ever personally try scented laundry products here in my house because we actually do suffer from laundry allergies and all products I use, at least when possible, are unscented and hypoallergenic.
