We go through a lot of pens and pencils at our house. I am always writing lists, notes, bills (boo!), or homeschool stuff. Our boys also go through their fair share from doing their school work. Since I'm always on the lookout for good quality writing utensils I was very happy to get a chance to review these products from Pentel and Shoplet. They kindly sent us three different products and we've been using them over the last couple weeks and loving them!
First up are these really bright and fun Vicuna Retractable Ballpoint Pens. They feature an oil based ink that is low in viscosity which helps to create an ultra smooth writing experience.
They are comfortable to hold and I have been using these to write in appointments on my calendar and in my appointment book. They make it so much more fun. I've also used these for writing in greeting cards. Bright colors are so much happier than just plain black or blue when sending a little note to someone.
The next product we tried out was this Pentel Twist-Erase III Mechanical Pencil.
This mechanical pencil is so very comfortable to hold because of it's latex free grip. It has a jumbo eraser that is much larger than regular mechanical pencils. You only need to twist the top to get more eraser. It writes with 0.5 mm fine lines which make it very easy to read. What really stands out to me is how dark it writes. So much better than other ones we've used. My oldest has claimed this one for his school work.

Finally, this Pentel EnerGel Alloy RT Roller Ball Retractable Gel Pen which just might be my favorite pen ever!
This pen feels so good in my hand. It writes so easily and is just really a beautiful pen. I feel rather important when I use it. It does help me feel a tiny bit better when I'm writing out bills. :) I will not allow anyone else in the house to use it because I love it so much! It's one of those pens that looks really expensive but is really not. It would be a great pen to gift someone or to gift yourself!
All three of these products have gotten so much use over the last couple of weeks. They have held up well and I would highly recommend if you are needing some quality writing pens and pencils that are affordable.
