These are just a few of the sentiments you will find at the ecoStore USA. And guess what? They're true!

I received two fantastic products from the ecoStore to try out, and I love them both...

{ Coconut & Vanilla Hand Wash }

Nick and I both enjoy the scent of Coconut & Vanilla Hand Wash, though both of us wish that it had a little more lather. The formula is smooth and light weight, and leaves your hands feeling both clean and refreshed. A little goes a long way, too, which is great because you don't have to replace it often. Made with essential oils, wheatgerm and wheat protein, and completely free from Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, artificial dyes, perfumes and preservatives, this hand soap leaves your skin's natural oils where they belong - on your skin - and doesn't dry out your skin, instead leaving it moisturized and silky smooth.

I have found that a full pump dispenses way more soap than you actual need, so I only press down enough for a small pearl of soap to appear (the amount in the picture is about half a pump, and is still far more than you really need). Overall, I love this soap, and once you figure out how much you really need, the absence of lather doesn't matter.

{ Laundry Detergent 32oz }

This Laundry Detergent is by far my absolute favorite laundry soap I have ever used, and I will definitely be a repeat customer. With a very faint scent reminiscent of these little white flowers that grow in the fields of my native Montana, and Eucalyptus oil, it leaves nothing behind on your clothes but a clean, fresh scent. I have a very sensitive respiratory system and very sensitive skin, and I love that - unlike other detergents that make my skin and nose itch, and give me headaches from the perfumes used - this detergent leaves my skin alone, and the scent doesn't bother me at all!

Its super concentrated formula allows you to use as little as half a capful per load of laundry, and as you can see, these caps are pretty small to begin with. This tiny bottle of detergent really stretches!

Just add your soap directly to your load of laundry - no staining, unlike some detergents! This product is specially formulated to be used with delicates and woolens, as well as with your regular laundry. I use it with everything from denims to towels to my infant daughter's tiny clothing and blankets! You can also use this detergent with HE washers.

The back of each ecoStore product has information about the specific product, as well as earth-friendly information about a variety of topics. The bottle itself is recyclable, light weight (as is the product inside), and it easily wipes clean if any detergent spills, so you never get that nasty sticky residue on the outside of the bottle.

You can connect with the ecoStore directly by "liking" their Facebook page, or following them on Twitter.

Want to win some of these great products for yourself? The great folks at the ecoStore are kindly sponsoring a giveaway of five of their fantastic bar soaps (one in each scent, including the baby bar) to one of my lucky readers! You must be at least 18 years old and a resident of the United States or Canada to win, and all you have to do is enter via the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!

  1. I'd like to try the Honey & Almond Shampoo because it's gentle enough to use often and it probably smells great.

  2. I'd like to try the Baby Nappy Balm! I know I'm going to be one of those mommies always concerned about what I'm putting on my baby's skin, especially the sensitive skin in his diapers!

    BTW, the twitter message you have as default for the twitter entry says "win one of five bar soaps" But the rafflecoptor says the prize is "5 bar soaps." Will the winner get one bar or five?

  3. I'd love to try the Laundry Liquid!

  4. I would like to try the Pear shampoo and conditioner. I have a hard time finding products that actually clean my hair. I usually have to switch brands every month because my hair doesn't get clean. I would love to find one product. Thanks.

  5. Thank you for your comments, and for entering my giveaway!

    Laura, one winner will receive all five soaps. Thanks for letting me know about this issue, I'll fix the RC form Tweet right away.

I sent you an email about your question, Linda, but just in case anyone else is confused about it, I'll answer here, too: You do not have to insert a link to this post into your Daily Tweet - the rafflecopter form will do that for you automatically. Just Tweet the message exactly as it appears and you'll be fine :)

  11. I would like to try the herbal fresh shampoo for dogs because we are always needing shampoo for these crazy dogs!

  12. The cucumber shampoo is something I would like to try.

  13. I'd love to try the baby sleepytime bath! Maybe for myself... because it just sounds so lovely LOL. But really, I'd hope it makes my kids fall asleep, haha ;)

  14. You had me sold with coconut & vanilla. I would love to try that handwash or the body wash of the same flavor. As much as I love "eco-friendly" I never find anything as effective as good ole tide, so I would love to give any of their laundry products a go.
