Some time ago, I was asked by ecoSTORE USA to do a review on a few of their products. They graciously gave me the option of picking a few items from their store to review! I was in hog-heaven! My girlfriend, Dana, had given me a few of their baby products at my baby shower and ever since then, I've been trying to figure out how to get these items into our budget!
ecoSTORE USA sells eco friendly products at an affordable price. I love this part on ecoSTORE's website...
"The original customer base of ecostore NZ was comprised of mostly ‘Greenies’ and organic gardeners. However, it was not long before testimonials from other parents (many of whom were unaware of the benefits of eco-friendly products) began to pour in with wonderful news of their children's allergies and eczema clearing up. Many noted that any respiratory issues were healing, and many lingering chronic conditions were disappearing."
I think that is one of the best things you can do for your children- giving them pure, wholesome ingredients- whether its for their tummies or for their skin! So many studies come out on a weekly basis about the chemicals that are found in shampoo and make up and simple things like chapstick! Its insane!
ecoSTORE USA does its best to keep their items at an affordable price. Every time I've gone to their website to take a gander and figure out how to fit, what we need, in our budget, there has always been a coupon code, a freebie or a sale! Something that makes it worth your while! And I've found, that going to local organic/natural product stores have a very similar, if not higher price, than ordering off line.
One of the things that I picked, was the body wash for myself! I figured that I've always researching or picking out items for the kids...why not get myself something?! I thoroughly enjoyed using my body wash in the fresh and clean scent of Coconut/Vanilla. I even used it as a shaving aid for my legs! Now this, if you know me really well, know that this is a BIG deal! I have such horrible skin issues... we jokingly said, when I was growing up, that I needed to marry a dermatologist! I have so many skin issues! But anyway, using this while shaving didn't cause any irritation! It was great!!!
I also picked out the laundry powder. I really had a hard time figuring out what I was going to blog about with this one cause..... its laundry detergent! Whats to say!? But in all honesty, it did clean my clothes! The scent wasn't overpowering. Not sure I would purchase it again, just because I know I can make my own for a tad bit cheaper, but thats just my opinion!!! If you want something that you don't have to worry about the chemicals in it, then this is for you!
A big, big, BIG thank you to the ecoSTORE for allowing me to do this fun review! I love their products and I know you will too!
