This product was sent to me for review by AuroraeYoga.com
AuroraeAqua reached out to me and asked me to give one of their Sport and Swim microfiber towels a try. "What does a towel have to do with a mommy blog," you ask??? Ummm, everything!!! At least for me!
You know what sucks? My house, as new and awesome as it is, did not come with a linen closet!!! Can you believe that? I didn't even notice it until after we moved in and I was unpacking and had no place to put my linens. So, my temporary (well, maybe not so temporary because it's been over 1.5 years and I'm still using it) was a little $50 cabinet I bought at Target and assembled myself. And in all honestly, it's small and regular towels don't even fit on a shelf if folded normally! And, forget closing it. It looks so stupid, but I haven't found a better solution for storage yet, so that's why I've lived with it for so long. Big, plush, comfy bath towels take up a LOT of space in my little cabinet. So, sure I'll try a thinner towel that's supposed to have the same kind of absorbency as a regular towel!
And then there's bath time. It's ridic. It's basically a tsunami in my bathroom. Every. Single. Time. We soak through a LOT of towels weekly. So annoying!!!
Aurorae Aqua is a recently launched new division of Aurorae Yoga. These new Sport and Swim towels they are offering are made of microfiber material, are oversized and supposed to be ultra-absorbent. It's offered in 8 different colors and are great for use at the beach, pool or home. I obviously used mine at home, and I tried it out a few times before I was ready to write this post.
Things I like about the towel -
- It is definitely oversized! I hate a towel that I can't wrap around my whole body after I bathe. This one is really large (32"x68"). It could even be used as a blanket! Definitely a plus!
- It is THIN!!! Like I said above, my little makeshift linen cabinet is tight on space. This towel folds up super compact. It would definitely be super easy to carry back and forth to the beach or pool. It takes up so little space!
- It dries pretty fast! I tried it on myself after a shower and then checked back after an hour and it was practically dry! I also used it on ALL 3 of my kids after bath time (like I dried them all with the same towel after the same bath), checked back after an hour, and all but one spot was dry! Super fast drying time is a real bonus!
- While the microfiber material is what makes the towel super absorbent, fast drying and compact, it is also not super plush and comfy like a regular towel. I found it difficult to glide the towel over my body to dry off, and instead I had to pat dry. Which is fine! It's just not what I'm used to. That's basically the only thing I didn't like. So, that's pretty good!
The price varies from $19.99 to $24.99, depending on the color. A bit more expensive than a regular towel. But then again, it's not a regular towel. I searched Amazon for a few other microfiber towels of the same size, and their price is right on point.
So, I'd definitely recommend this product! The compactness of it is a major bonus for me. And so is the drying time. I'm not going to go so far as to say I'm replacing all of my towels with microfiber towels, but next time I'm in need of more towels in my house, I will be trying another one of these first.
