If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know I get totally excited over green products. I have a feeling that if I ever became a hoarder, I'd be exclusively a green product hoarder, because I love them so much. So when EcoStore USA contacted me about doing a review of two products, I was thrilled. I checked out their website, and they have all sorts of choices - baby items, pet items, bath and beauty, and household. I decided on liquid laundry detergent (seeing as how my life seems to revolve around doing laundry) and coconut vanilla hand wash.
The products arrived in environmentally friendly packing - even the boxes are made from recycled paper.
Both of the products I chose are plant based, not tested on animals, and do not contain any nasty chemicals.
The hand soap has such a mild scent - not overpowering at all. Just the softest of smells.
Pierce actually really took to it.
Took to it so much that he used almost half the bottle in 2 days and I had to hide it from him.
I have to say - it's very moisturizing (but not in a sticky way) so I can understand the appeal - it makes for soft hands.
The laundry detergent I picked is for sensitive skin. Cort is prone to eczema, so we have to be careful about detergents. I came back from Type A Conference to find piles of laundry. I thought I might never catch up, to be truthful. The liquid detergent had the softest of scents, undetectable unless you hold the clothing right to the nose and sniff deeply. I like that. I'm not crazy about fresh linen smells, so it was nice that this wasn't heavily scented.
My colors were bright when taken out. I dried the clothes in the dryer with dryer balls in lieu of a dryer sheet. The clothing all came out very soft and there was no static whatsoever. And I'm very happy to report that the detergent has caused no irritation for Cort's delicate skin.
I hope you'll check out EcoStore USA. I was really pleased with the products I tried and love knowing that I'm not harming the environment or my boys when I use them.
