It’s that time again! Time for a FriendsOffice Product Review! At the end of each month, I do a product review of some of our favorite brands and products to see how they actually hold up. This month, I am reviewing the Sharpie S-Gel Pen from Newell Brands.

My Thoughts on This Product

When I was deciding what product I was going to review this month, I really didn’t have anything in mind. I was actually a week into October when I decided to do the Sharpie Pen. I had been using it for a few weeks and found myself obsessing over it. For anyone who knows me, I am a stationary fiend! I love all things stationary; from pens and paper to stickers and notepads. So really, writing this review just made sense.

Being that I love pens, I tend to be picky about the ones I use. I hate using pens where the ink skips in places or smears while I am writing. Since I love Sharpies I knew I had to try it! What I really enjoy about using it is its smooth writing capabilities and the fact that the ink dries quickly. It’s comfortable to write with, it’s very precise, and has a fairly sleek design as far as pens go. If I had to rank it on a “Good, Better, Best” scale, I would put it up there with the best. The overall quality of the Sharpie Pen has left me looking for it every time I have something to write down.

I normally start with the good qualities of the product and then move on to the less desirable qualities when I’m reviewing, however, I can’t say that I have anything negative to say about this pen. All I can do for this one is provide suggestions and a wish list. For example, I really hope that they expand this products colors. I would buy this pen in every color! I also think it would be interesting to create a pack of different pen point sizes, similarly to a graphite pencil pack with its various graphite hardnesses.


I’m sure its a bit obvious from the rest of this post what my conclusion was, but that’s what reviews are for. After using the Sharpie S-Gel Pen, I couldn’t help but share my love for it with others. I’d absolutely recommend this pen for anyone looking a quality writing utensil that has yet to fail.
