ecostore USA Review & Giveaway

*Closed: Congrats to Anonymous!*

I struggle at times to be more eco-friendly. Some things are simple, reusable shopping bags, energy efficient light bulbs, low-flow shower heads. Others don't always come so easily to me.

I want to use more eco-friendly cleaning supplies and bath items, but have tried many that don't seem to clean as well as they promise. And time and time again, I find myself reverting back to my old standbys.

I recently had the chance to try a few products from ecostore USA. ecostore USA offers more than 100 products that meet the most stringent environmental and sustainability standards. The guiding principle of each product is that it must not only be good for the user, but also for the planet.

Since moving into our house, I've struggled to find a dish detergent that works well with our dishwasher. So I decided to try the Auto Dish Powder. Made from blend of simple mineral salts, citrus, and Coconut oils, I was impressed at how well the powder cleaned my dishes. With many soaps, they come out needing to be rewashed. However, I did not have an issue with the Auto Dish Powder.
We also tried out the Baby Body Wash. ecostore USA describes this as being an incredibly mild and cleansing formulation that will leave your precious child's skin soft and silky.

My 5 year old battles dry skin during the winter, so I thought this sounded perfect for him. After using it several times, I am thrilled at the difference compared to other soaps. His skin is much softer and the number of complaints about "itchy skin" have drastically decreased. And with an incredibly light scent, it is perfect for a little boy who doesn't want to smell "too girly." Buy It:
Baby Body Wash is available for only $6.00 right now and the Auto Dish Powder is $7.20! (Sale prices in effect until the end of the year)

Win It:
One lucky reader will win a $25 gift certificate for ecostore USA

To enter: Visit ecostore USA and tell me what you would purchase if you won.

Giveaway ends 12/31 at 11:59 pm EST. Winner will be notified via email.
Open to US only.

Thanks to ecostore USA for providing the product for review. All opinions expressed are our own.

I would START by ordering the products we use ON our bodies, like the Vanilla Shampoo and conditioner and the Baby shampoo. The products out there with toxins we use on our skin bothers me the most!!!
