[Review & Giveaway] Eco Natural Soap



  Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 
Last week Eco Natural Soap sent me a few of their all natural organic products to try out and review. They are a family owned business and the idea came to them after trying out some home made wool balls for the dryer. They then moved on to removing chemicals from products in their home like in laundry detergent, then they eventually started making soaps and lip/body balms (read the full story here). I tried out “Lip Relief” All Natural Lip Balm Citrus Sunrise, AM Moisturizer, Exotic Butters Luxury Skin Balm (Citrus Sunrise), and Bath & Body Soap (Citrus Sunrise). So for the week I switched out my usual Chapstick, soap and lotion for those products. So here are some quick thoughts about the products:

Organic Lip Balm: I am addicted to chapstick, and I mean really addicted* (I have 2 in my purse, 2 at work, and 1 next to me at all times).   I was very eager to try out a flavored lip balm again so I chose Citris Sunrise and the smell does not disappoint! It is very fragrant and goes on nice and smooth and keeps my lips hydrated without the need to reapply often (though I must admit I am so used to reapplying that I still did it anyway).  This is definitely my favorite of the 4 products, but I am going to have to switch using this with my chapstick to avoid the lip smackers debacle*.

Bath & Body Bar: I am not usually one to use bars of soap but the wonderful smell of this soap was enough to suck me in. The soap lathered up great but my skin did feel a little weird after using it, not as smooth as usual.  But once I was dry and out of the shower I didn't notice, so maybe it is just me...

Exotic Butters Luxury Skin Balm: I am very prone to dry skin, especially on my elbows and knees so I was looking forward to seeing how this worked.  The product was a little hard to get out at first (all skin balms are so that's normal) but once I had used it more it came out very easily.  You only need to use a small amount; if you use too much, like I did the first time (even though Alicia of Eco Natural Soaps warned me), your skin will be a little greasy.  Overall this product worked great and i will definitely keep using it to soothe my stupid dry skin!

A.M. Moisturizer: This product is for use on your lovely face, as the label says it is "designed for wear under make-up."  It definitely does the job well and doesn't have a scent which is good when you're using it on your face. You don't want your whole face smelling, now do you? When I didn't use makeup it just left my skin feeling fresh for my lovely day at work, if I added makeup it was a great way to prepare my face.

What You Get: 1 Soap, 1 Body Balm and 1 Lip Balm

* I used to use Lip Smackers but I had to stop because after a while I stopped smelling it when I put it on because I was so used to it. People would comment on the watermelon smell of my lips and I would be like "Huh?...I can't smell anything" So I had to start using plain Chapstick.
