Giveaway: Eco Store USA for eco friendly cleaners, bath & body and baby care products

It is getting easier and easier to make green, eco-friendly choices in our lives. One of the biggest trends I’ve noticed has been in the world of cleaning products and bath & body care. Everyone is jumping on board. One example of a great eco-friendly company is Eco Store USA which sells everything from soaps, shampoos, dishwasher detergent (or plain dish soap!), laundry detergent, baby bath products and even pet shampoos! Let every member of your family, pets included, and your home benefit from a good green cleaning.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of trying out Eco Store USA‘s vanilla shampoo and conditioner as well as their dishwasher powder and dish soap. Each of these products works well, smells good and integrates themselves seamlessly into our cleaning routines. The best thing about them, though, is what’s not in them – nasty chemicals. Eco Store USA founders Melanie and Malcolm Rands have worked hard to create household cleaning products using plant-based ingredients that would biodegrade safely and quickly, eliminating the need to use toxic chemicals. What started as a product for true ‘Greenies’ and organic gardeners quickly caught on with the rest of the world.

Eco Store USA offers more than 100 products, each one meeting stringent environmental and sustainability standards. And by using super-concentrated formulas, they’ve made their products budget-friendly and long lasting. A little goes a long way.

Want to try some Eco Store USA products yourself? We’re giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky reader which can be used at the Eco Store USA website. Here’s how you can enter to win.

Kiss My Face – Giveaway

ppfctonerKiss My Face is a company that has created a line of products for body care, cleansing, skin care, oral care, hair care and more. They find it important to focus on ingredients that come straight from nature. They make sure that all of their products have:

-no artificial colors

-no unnecessary chemicals

The Kiss My Face Potent and Pure facial care system is specially designed to be of high quality and to have ingredients that work and do the job!  The ingredients are also all natural so you can be sure that no funky chemicals are going onto your skin.  They used smart scientists and research to find these combinations of botanical, vitamins, extracts and minerals that make your skin glow.

I am not one of those people that are good about keeping up a skin care regimen. You can tell by my horrible skin. I began using the Kiss My Face products upon arrival and instantly could feel and see a difference. I started by following their recommended procedure of use:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Tone
  3. Nourish
  4. Moisturize
  5. Eyes
  6. Extra Treatment

The smell of these products is outstanding, fruity and fun. My husband said I kind of smelled like “Fruit Loops.” It was a weird explanation as I did not smell it that way. But he loves that brand of cereal which is why he compared it that way first. The packaging is eco-friendly and is simple yet adorable.  My favorite product in their line is the Balancing Antioxidant Toner. I have never used a Toner before, I never understood the point of it. Until I used it. My skin tone evened out. No more weird red spots or discoloring. The Balancing Toner is now part of my daily regimen and will continue to be with the other Potent and Pure products.

You could win some products from Kiss My Face’s Potent and Pure’s product lines. Here’s how you can enter to win:

  1. Visit Kiss My Face and tell us what product from the line you’d most like to have for your skin care. This is mandatory, if not done all other entries are null and void.
  2. For an extra entry, you can follow uson Twitter. Post a comment here with your Twitter username.
  3. For a third entry you can tweet about this giveaway or post about it on your blog and leave a comment here with either the URL of your post or your twitter profile. “Do you want great skin? Win Potent and Pure skin products from Kiss My Face @ http://www.mommasreview.com

Udderly Smooth – Udderly Fantastic

One of my favorite bloggers, Jennifer from Rundpinne, informed me that the only lotion she uses is Udderly Smooth Udder Cream. Her family has very dry skin and Udder Cream is the only lotion that zaps the dryness. I trust my friends choices so I had to give this product a try.

udderly-smooth

I was able to try a few products from the Udderly Smooth line.

  • Extra Care Cream – Fragrance Free
  • Shea Butter Foot Cream
  • Udder Cream
  • Hand and Foot Lotion
  • Udder Cream is a non-greasy and stain free lotion that is thick but goes on smoothly. My skin immediately sucked in the lotion and felt dry and almost healthy! I did find the formula slightly greasy, but nothing extreme.

    Both of my daughters have excema in the winter time. Their skin gets dry and very crocodile like, I’ve tried every single lotion I can think of to help ease their itchy arms and legs. We’ve now started using Udderly Smooth Udder Cream and Hand and Foot Lotion on them each day. The lotion seems to provide relief to their dry skin and I do not see as much itching.

    My eldest daughter even requested that the Hand and Foot lotion be kept in her room for whenever she needs it! So now she has the adorable cow patterned lotion next to her bed for whenever she needs it.

    The packaging itself sells me on the Udderly Smooth products, so it made me excited that the product inside was just as exciting. I will certainly be keeping Udderly Smooth products, especially the Udder Cream in my bathroom from here on out.

    MMM – Hana Elite Flat Iron from Misikko

    Hana Elite Flat Iron 1I have unruly hair. It is thick, and cannot decide if it is straight or curly. It’s just a thick ball of horrible.  Whenever I need to go somewhere special I either go curly, or I use a hair straightener.   With such thick hair the straightening process can take up to an hour to do. That’s a long time for this mom!

    I was lucky enough to get a Hana Flat Iron from Misikko.  Misikko carries the newest and most innovative products for the hair and beauty industry. They are a smart company and picky when it comes to the products they sell, which means that the products you buy from them are the very best.

    The Hana Professional Flat Iron is a hair straightener that is one inch thick. There are multiple settings depending on your hair type and easy to use directions. I plugged the flat iron in and let it warm up for only a minute. Sitting on my bed I began the flat iron process. I decided not to use a mirror since I wanted to be surprised by the results. Within 15 minutes my whole head felt perfect! I look into the mirror and voila. Perfection!

    My hair looked straight but not fake straight. It was shiny and looked healthier than it has looked in a really long time. Misikko I think I am in love!

    Thanks to Misikko we are giving away a Hana Elite Professional Flat Iron. The Elite Model boasts: “The Hana Elite Flat Iron is 100% true, solid ceramic. This means it will never peel or chip to expose hair to damaging metal – it also means Hana can include large ceramic heaters that cover the entire plates for the best possible heat distribution and retention.”

    MMM Giveaway: Vivabox Spa Manicure & Pedicure

    What do you give the person who has everything? How do you celebrate a major milestone in a person’s life, with a thoughtful gift that will last in their memories? One really great option is a Vivabox – they call themselves a unique gift experience and an experiential gift box. You can go to their website and choose from a large number of gift boxes that come with great products from companies you likely already know and love – and a gift card that can be used by the gift recipient to add to the wow factor of their gift. An example? We recently received a BBQ Vivabox that came in a sleek looking package that had me oohing and ahhing (see photo above of the different Vivaboxes). Inside were three different grilling spices and rubs from a company called Urban Accents. My husband and I have been experimenting with our spices all week, using the helpful recipes on the Urban Accents website and going to town with these delicious spice blends. But it doesn’t end with the spices – you also get a gift card that can be redeemed for your choice of an additional gift – you can get more great products from Urban Accents or a large selection of meats from Omaha Steaks. Your Vivabox comes with a brochure that tells you all your options – make your selection and then go to the Vivabox website and redeem your gift card, and within a week or two you’ll have the rest of the gift delivered to your door. It’s so easy – and the products are so good. My husband is basically in hog heaven and has already said he wants to get this same gift set for his father’s 50th birthday. I’m eying their tea & coffee boxes.

    And you? We’re giving one lucky reader the Vivabox Spa Manicure & Pedicure box! Inside the box you’ll find a gift card that you can exchange for a manicure and pedicure at any of SpaFinder’s 4,000 day spas worldwide. Even the tip is included so your nails stay perfect! But of course your experience doesn’t end there. The box also includes spa quality lotions and bath products from EO Products, a Certified Organic Manufacturer so you can recreate your spa experience at home.

    EO Products include:

    • French Lavender Body Lotion
    • French Lavender Shower Gel
    • Organic Juniper and Lemon Bath Salts
    • Grapefruit and Mint Body Lotion
    • Revitalizing Lotion for Legs and Feet

    Are you ready for your chances to enter and win? Here’s what you need to do:

    1. Tell us which of the other Vivaboxes you like best and include your email address for VivaBox. This is mandatory, if not done all other entries will be null and void.
    2. For an extra entry, you can follow us on Twitter. Post a comment here with your Twitter username.
    3. For a third entry you can tweet the following on twitter: “Mommas March Mania @mommasreview is still going strong! Win a Vivabox and much more… http://www.mommasreview.com” – be sure to post a comment here telling us you’ve done so.

    Review: Bubble & Bee Organic Lotion Sticks

    I get really dry skin in the winter. My hands get so bad that it’s painful, my legs are an itchy mess – and the constant spreading of lotion can get exhausting. Then there are the vast assortment of lotions, each with their pros and cons. Scented or unscented? How greasy will it leave my hands feeling? How long will it even last? And as a last caveat – is it good for me and the environment?

    I recently had the opportunity to try the Coconut & Lime Organic Lotion Stick by Bubble & Bee – it’s like lotion for your hands, feet, whatever in a form you’d recognize as chap stick. Seriously. The first thing I noticed was that it smelled divine. Good enough that when I caught my two year old son smearing it into my desk while I was cooking dinner last night, my first thought was, “Please god tell me he didn’t eat it (He didn’t – and for the record, the cleanup was remarkably easy – if he’d done the same thing with a liquid lotion it would have been a disaster. Plus 10 points for the Organic Lotion Stick right there!).”

    I’m not convinced that this lotion will cure the really bad dry skin out there, although I’ve heard that continued use will show results, I’m a skeptic at heart. My hands require a lot of work and still feel a little dry after applying the stick lotion – but they also didn’t feel greasy and I did notice that they hurt less than before applying. I’m toying with the idea that this might be more about hand maintenance than instant relief? At the very least, as a mid day, easy to carry anywhere solution, teamed with a more medicinal intense relief hand lotion in the morning and at night – I think it would be perfect. And for all you normal people with normal dry skin, I don’t think this can be beat. No messes, no oily residue – just good, sweet smelling lotion. I love the clever idea of a lotion in a stick, so much cleaner and quicker and really just fun. There’s a novelty there that amuses the child in me.

    The grown up in me, meanwhile, is eating up that whole organic bit. No need to wonder what the strange foreign ingredients are. I think you can easily recognize organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic sweet almond oil, organic lime essential oil, and certified organic coconut scent. The lotion stick contains no water, which means they don’t have to use synthetic preservatives, it doesn’t evaporate and wash off as easily as a bottled lotion would – and you’ll use less product, which means it will last longer, putting your $7.95 per stick to really good use. And that whole no preservatives thing is apparently a big deal – I didn’t know much about it either way before, but I read the following on the Bubble & Bee website:

    Most lotions are 80% water with maybe 10% oil. Companies use chemical emulsifiers to make the water and oil combine, and synthetic preservatives are added to keep the water from growing bacteria. Even “natural” lotions aren’t really that natural because they’ve got at least an emulsifier and a preservative. Sometimes companies will go without preservatives so their label reads to be more natural. But that’s a problem, too. Now you’ve got a lotion that could be growing bacteria. What happens when you get that bacteria in a cut on your hand, or get it in your eye?

    So, where does our lotion stick fall into all of this? On top, of course! Our 100% organic lotion stick poses no risk of growing bacteria. Bacteria and other pathogens can’t grow in oil. Because our lotion stick is 100% oil-based, there’s no risk of bacteria. Plus, you don’t have to pay for water. If your skin needs a little water hydration, pat some on and use our lotion stick afterwards. It’ll seal in the moisture and heal your skin a lot better than a bunch of chemicals would!

    Bubble & Bee sells a lot of different products besides the super clever Lotion Sticks. I’m already eying their insect repellent for this summer and maybe some bamboo fiber towels… Basically, if you don’t want to spend hours drooling over fabulous organic products, I recommend avoiding Bubble & Bee, because I’m pretty sure you won’t be able to restrain yourself once you try them!

    Bubble & Bee is offering our readers a discount at checkout! At checkout you can save $5.00 of an order over $20.00 by entering the promo code: review09 (expires 5/31/2009).
