Ecostore Love (And A Giveaway)

If you’re anything like me (aka on a bit of a personal mission to lessen your ecological footprint) then I think you’ll really dig the products from Ecostore.

Originally founded over 15 years ago in New Zealand as a small home business, Ecostore grew exponentially and has now expanded to the US. Their eco-friendly cleaning products are affordable and follow a No Nasty Chemicals™ philosophy.

So far I have tried their Dishwash Liquid as well as the Manuka Sandalwood Shampoo and (as someone who used to work in an all natural soap store) I’m rather impressed with their products!


The Dishwash Liquid has a nice clean & fresh scent which isn’t at all overwhelming like some of the detergents that I have used in the past. Since I am the main dishwasher in my home (the boy is actually to tall to do the dishes for more than 10 minutes without getting a backache!) my hands are subject to all sorts of dish water torture. I was a little nervous to try a new product, but after just a week of using Ecostore soap I was pleasantly surprised that my hands didn’t feel dried out at all. Good for the environment and my skin? I’m sold!


As for the shampoo, well, I am a girl who actually doesn’t wash her hair that often, or condition it. Yes, I’m sure you’re all making disgusted faces, but my hair is much happier with a wash once or twice a week TOPS. This being said, I’m pretty choosy about the shampoo I do use. The Manuka Sandalwood ‘poo has all sorts of delicious smelling essential oils – manuka, cedarwood atlas, sandalwood, amyris and lemon – which I found refreshing and, once again, not overwhelming in the least. I’ve been using it for about a month now & I have to say, I have some content locks! As a busy mama who barely has time to shower in the first place, it’s always nice to know that at least my hair is in good shape!

All in all, I’m smitten and can’t wait to try more of their products – I’ve especially got my eye on their pet products. I bet Sir Winston would love some leave in conditioner!

...

The lovely folks over at Ecostore have generously offered one of my readers at $25 gift certificate -- which will go a long way right now as I see they are having a sale!
