#shopletreviews Celebrating 50 years of Pentel writing
Happy Monday everyone. Today, I am thrilled to be one of the first #ShopletBloggers to share Pentel’s writing instruments with you. I’ve got 3 amazing products to share with you; Retractable Ballpoint Pens, a Mechanical Pencil and a Retractable Gel Pen. All of these writing instruments can be purchase on Shoplet along with all of your other office supplies.
This post is brought to you by Shabby Chic Boho and shoplet.com. Although I received the below mentioned products free or for a reduced price, all opinions expressed herein are 100% completely and truthfully my own.
I’ll start with the Retractable Ballpoint Pens because they are so cute and colorful making my writing and journaling a pretty task indeed. For this set I received a pack of 8 rainbow colors. I’m not joking, the colors are bright and vivid and remind me of a rainbow. They write really well, I did have a few skips in the ink but after using them for a few minutes, that worked itself out. None of them smeared (hurrah) and dried almost instantly. The ink in these are of an oil-based nature. Oil-based ink provides some of the smoothest writing I’ve ever attempted and I’m sure you’ll agree if you use oil-based ink pens. The more I used these pens, the smoother writing I received. Writing made easier with a fine point.
I’ve used Pentel Mechanical Pencils in the past and they are Alyssa’s favorite for school. She managed to talk me out of mine, and I don’t blame her one bit. Isn’t it a lot more fun to write with a fun Mechanical Pencil than it is the boring #2’s? Of course it is which is why I’ll continue buying these for myself and Alyssa. I love the protective tip design because Alyssa presses down pretty hard when she writes and the protective tip helps against breakage of the lead. We’ll both agree that the latex-free grip makes it possible to write almost endlessly and effortlessly. If you have arthritis like I do, try these mechanical pencils with the grip instead of the regular pencils. You’ll see the difference instantly.
Last but definately a favorite to me is the Retractable Gel Pen that I received. I love the powder blue color of this gel pen. And the writing is perfect each and every time. You get the high performance you would expect to see with Pentel EnerGel pens. This pen provides some of the best ink I’ve ever used and I have it sitting on my desk at all times. As I stated, it is definitely a favorite pen of mine. I love the textured grip because even if I’m sitting outside journaling, in the heat, with hands sweating, my grip stays true. This pen has a medium point which I usually prefer over a fine point. It just shows up better to me and my aging eyes.
Which of the three products mentioned would you most like to purchase and why?
