This giveaway is now closed.
I was recently contacted and asked if I would do a review on ecostore's natural, environmentally friendly products and of course I said yes! There are some other products I've been using lately that I have not been happy with so I was looking forward to trying these out.
They are also offering to give one of my lucky readers a gift certificate for their products! How nice are they?
But first let me tell you about the products I chose to review and why their products are important for everyone. They carry products from baby care, bath & body, hair, household, and pet care too!
"Our eco friendly, plant-based household cleaning products are as effective as the leading supermarket brands, and our body and baby care ranges are gentle on your skin and are simply beautiful to use. Our pet care products let you spoil your pets with our nourishing, rich blends of ingredients and show them how much you care by reducing their exposure to unhealthy chemicals. All of our products are made from plant- and mineral-based ingredients, free of toxic chemicals that bring people closer to nature with non-toxic, environmentally safe solutions that also help to reduce our carbon footprint."
"Why should I use ecostore products? Because we care about your health! So many conventional products are being linked to chronic health issues. It makes good sense to us to eliminate those NASTY CHEMICALS and get back to nature. By using all plant based ingredients we not only protect your health but your planet too. "

Auto Dish Powder
This is a high performance blend of simple mineral salts, citrus and Coconut oils. Stuck on food and grease won't stand a chance when it comes to the NO NASTY CHEMICAL products from Ecostore USA.
*My review: I thought this was great! We have hard water here, so it always leaves a white residue on our dishes. I've been using another product to keep those spots away. Since using Ecostore's Auto Dish Powder, I haven't noticed any residue or a bleachy smell. It's great! I wonder if it was those other detergents leaving that residue??
Pure Oxygen Whitener
This contains oil of citrus and Coconut and other plant-based ingredients. Ecomommas will love the way this product brightens and cleans baby’s clothes and does not contain any harsh chemicals that could irritate delicate skin.
* My review: I have been using this in every load whites and colors. If you are familiar with oxyclean, this is like that, but with better ingredients. You only need 1-2 tablespoons too. Since using Ecostore's Pure Oxygen Whitener, I can see some cleaner results in our laundry.
This extremely mild shampoo was created to cleanse the hair, but not irritate baby's skin or eyes. Combining only the best of nature and plant-based ingredients, no harm will come to your baby or our waterways.
yes we have a fugly bright sea foam green tiled bathroom w/tub to match!
*My review: Well to be honest, it sort of uh, stinks, it may be my sense of smell though. It reminded me of a dog shampoo smell. Maybe they could've done that a lavender or vanilla scent? It also did irritate my little one's eyes, but again maybe it was the scent? BUT, it left the kid's hair SO soft and easy to comb through!
* UPDATE- My personal review: I tried this shampoo on my self (with my long hair, it took about half the bottle, haha), actually a little goes a long way. Do you know what that smell is? Citronellol , like the mosquito candles? Yeah, not my favorite smell, thankfully it doesn't really smell like that when dried. Anyways, I felt like it really cleaned my hair and made it soft. I think I could get past the smell for how nice it made my hair.
So I think my favorite item would be the Auto Dish Powder!
