Eco Products Review

Friday, January 16, 2009

This website will be focused on the best that I've come across. I will take requests for products you think I should review. My friends....I'll do it, so you don't have to! In the near future, I will create a mailing list that will list the so-so, and the downright ugly. I hope you enjoy!

CleanWell Natural Hand Sanitizers

This is an amazing product. I am a self professed germaphobe, but I don't want to use all those hand sanitizers with triclosan, etc. These products always gave me allergies with all their synthetic fragrances, stung, and left a residue. This products comes in a spray which dries quickly. No more gels and sticky hands.

CleanWell products kill 99.9% of germs using thyme. Thyme grows really fast, and without pesticides. It has been used for centeries for medicinal purposes and its gotten a makeover for modern use. Hurray for progress.

Giovanni Shampoos and Conditioner

When I started my exploration into natural products, I often felt dissatisfied because the products didn't feel the same as the ones (non-eco) I had been used to. This was a long time ago however, and I realize that for some products this is fine. This is not the case with hair products though. I used eco hair products that were greasy, that didn't distribute and just sat there, and the worst was one that was so thick it pulled my hair out with rinsing.

However, with Giovanni Shampoos and Conditioners; I had no problems whatsoever. They seem to lather even though there are no sulfates, and they smell mild and LOVELY. No paraben. WOOHOO!!!!!

My favorites are the 50/50 Balanced and tea tree (for when I need a little scalp treatment). There are 17 different products in the haircare line.

This is my favorite shampoo ever!

Weleda Everon Lip Balm

Good lip balms are hard to come by. There are those which claim to moisturize, but just seem to sit there and never sink in; those which leave a weird film, and dry your lips out; and the goopy, glaring-maybe for clubbing but not for work- shiny kind. But alas, a lip balm that does what it's supposed to! Weleda Everon Lip Balm is a good natural balm which comes in a retro looking peach and white tube. It's not fruity smelling and doesn't taste like chemicals, but it has a nice subtle scent of vanilla/rose. My lips stay moisturized and feel natural.

PS: When you first get it, it's pretty solid. Rubbing it on the back of your hand the first time, will warm it up to glide across lips easily. This balm will give you the perfect amount, no blotting, and perfect under or over lipstick too.

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps

How many good things can I list about Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps? They are organic, they are socially responsible, and they come in 8 (if unscented counts) scents. Their soaps come in bodywash that is in a 100% recycled bottle and a bar form.

This product leaves me feeling clean, but moisturized. It doesn't have a million ingredients which I can't understand, but under ten that I know and love. The packaging is colorful and reads like the back of a cereal box (and then some).

I prefer almond as an everyday scent, but try tea tree when your skin is acting up and it'll calm it right down.

PS: Be wary of using these on your face. Because of the essential oils in them, they might sting your eyes or agrevate allergies. Also, Castille Soap can gunk up your drain, so pour vinegar and boiling water down the sink if this happens.

Burts Bee's Baby Bee Buttermilk Lotion

I adore this product. Yes, it is greasy but not in the petroleum jellyish sort of way. Your skin will drink it right up. And as you use it more and more, it'll will absorb in a flash and you'll hardly have to wait to touch something or put your clothes on. I know it says it's a baby product, but I have gotten so many compliments about the scent, saying I smell like apricots or so good. People have even followed me around.
