Soapbox Saturday - Eco Natural Soap and a Giveaway

I got an e-mail about a month ago from a kind lady named Alicia.  She said she and her husband have a small company, Eco Natural Soap.  She asked if I wanted to try some of their products and do a give away on my blog.  I'll be honest.  I was a bit skeptical.  I'm not someone who buys only natural or organic products.  I got on their web site and gave myself a little tour.  Let me just say that I find it completely refreshing to find people who are doing what they love and loving what they do.  I was really impressed with the information on their site and their excitement, so I wrote Alicia back with my wishlist.

About a week later I received the products to try.  First off, let me tell you that I was REALLY impressed.  I am excited to share these products with you because I geniunely love them.  Everything they make is all natural.  That means no harmful substances or chemicals.  I'm going to tell you about each one, so you can figure out if it'd be your kind of product.

The Seaweed and Cucumber Exotic Butters Complexion Bar

This soap rocks.  It creates a great lather and my skin didn't feel dry after using it.  My skin is a frustration for me.  It's oily in places and crazy dry in other places.  Usually after I put on my foundation, my skin will appear super dry in certain areas.  It starts to get flaky.  I hate it.  However, this soap somehow seemed to even things out for me.  I've been using it for almost two weeks now (and applying their Body Butter as face lotion) and I am really happy with the results.  My skin feels super soft.  Yay!

Skin Renewal "Pure Delight" Body Butter

I'm been using this on my face.  I'm always a bit nervous to try lotions on my face because I'm afraid they will make me break out.  This lotion went on like butter, made my foundation really easy to apply, and kept my skin looking healthy all day.  I kept feeling my cheeks because I liked how smooth they felt.

I used to use an Aveeno soap and lotion, but I like the Eco Natural Products a lot more.  When you see the products on their site you'll notice that the containers are really small.  Don't worry.  They last way longer than normal products because they aren't watered down.  I was impressed when I read all the cool ingredients.  None of them have alcohol or anything that dries out your skin (while everything you buy in the store does).

Luscious Lips/Lip Relief All Natural Lip Balm
The lip balm is really nice. I liked both the shea butter and the peppermint.  Like the body butter, it's nice to know that it doesn't have any sneaky ingredients that dry out your skin even more.

Scalp and Hair Health Shampoo Bar

I was really interested to try this product.  Bar soap for hair?  Until reading their info I didn't realize that regular shampoo is 65-80% water.  I was really happy with what this product did to my hair.  The only thing that I didn't like was the fact that it took a lot more time to use.  See, my hair is pretty thick and it's getting long so it took a while to really get it all lathered up.  If I had shorter hair it would be perfect.  But, as I said, I had no complaints about the actual product and what it did.

Exotic Butters Luxury Skin Balm

This balm has a nice citrus scent.  It moisturizes really well.  I have seriously dry skin.  My legs are particularly awful.  This was great for my skin.  I really liked it and a little goes a long way.

I love my Eco Natural Soap products.  I'm really glad Alicia let me try them out.  Now it's your turn.  If you'd like to win some of their products just hop on over to their site and come back to leave a comment about which product you want to try.  The winner will receive two bars of soap, one balm or butter, and one lip balm of their choice.  Drawing closes Monday at 6pm.  Winner announced on Tuesday.

Thanks for dropping in!
