CLOSED ~ Go Green! EcoStore Review and Giveaway!

As many of you know, I like featuring green products on my blog. I have been slowly trying to go green. I don't always do that well but I figure every little bit counts. So when EcoStore USA contacted me to do a review of the products they sell, I was thrilled. What I like about these products is that EcoStore USA is committed to making them green and they do. Their motto is: No Nasty Chemicals and their products don't contain nasty chemicals.

EcoStore USA products are plant and/or mineral based. So when they say No Nasty Chemicals, they mean it. They use recyclable packing. The products are not tested on animals. The products also meet the highest environmental standards. If "GREEN" is your thing then go onto the site and read up some more because the story of how EcoStore USA was founded is very interesting.

As part of this review I was given the opportunity to choose 2 products from EcoStore USA. Let me tell you that it was a hard choice. They have so many fantastic products to choose from. It took me a while to make a decision but I decided that I would give myself a treat and pick something just for me and not the household. I chose the Rosemary Orange Shampoo and Conditioner. I am always on the lookout for hair products. With winter coming, I like to find shampoos that will not dry out my hair because the winter weather already does that so I thought these products would be great to try.

The products are excellent. The first thing I loved was the smell. It has a subtle fragrance of rosemary. I was worried that they might be too strong after I requested them but the rosemary was in perfect balance with the orange and the smell is soft and light. The shampoo itself does not lather up like regular shampoos probably because of the natural ingredients but that made no difference because the shampoo cleaned well. My hair felt squeaky clean. The conditioner was light but it did work to make my hair smoother and silkier. Even after blow drying my hair, it didn't feel dried out. The next day my hair still looked and felt great.

I highly recommend these hair products especially if you want natural products with No Nasty Chemicals. I also would recommend other products from EcoStore USA. A few months ago I won a $25 gift certificate from a blog for EcoStore USA products. I tried the Front Loader Laundry Powder and the Lemon Aid Rinse for the dishwasher. They were fantastic as well. I especially like the Laundry Powder. It washed well and it lasted a long time because I didn't have to use that much. It also makes me feel good that I am using products that won't cause more damage to the environment. They have all sorts of products. Besides hair care, they have bath & body products, a line of baby products and household products. Visit the EcoStore USA website and do a little green shopping!

But if you want to try your luck, you have the opportunity to win some of the EcoStore USA products for yourself. I want to thank EcoStore USA for offering one of my readers his/her very own $25 gift certificate so you can do a little green shopping for yourself. This is a great prize for some great products. So you know the drill. Read the entry rules and enter!! Thanks and good luck!
