ecoTOOLS Bath and Body Collection

As a convert to ecoTOOLS environmentally friendly and affordable makeup tools, I was excited  to hear that they have recently released a collection of bath and body products.

One of my favorite products from this line is the Clean Skin, Cleaner World Body Wash ($7.99).  This is made with 98% natural ingredients, and is a botanical and biodegradable body wash. The scent is very fresh and pretty and it even makes a great bubble bath. I let my daughters use it and feel safe in doing so, since it does not contain harsh chemicals. 

I have also tried the fresh, floral-scented Blooming Planet Body Mist ($7.99).  This is a great everyday scent because it is light and clean smelling. Just spritz it on after a shower or bath, and you smell and feel fantastic! 

The line also includes the Sustainable Softness Body Lotion ($7.99)with shea butter and One Hand Helps the Other Hand Cream ($7.99) with jojoba oil and notes of cardamom and ginger, as well as other “green” products.

The ecoTOOLS Bath & Body Care Collection can be found at Walgreens stores nationwide.  Visit www.eco-tools.com for a full list of retailers and products.

My 5 Top Finds in 2009 — So Far…

 

I am so excited, as this is my 100th blog post! I started my blog in September 2008. But since January, I have received lots of fantastic products from fab companies to sample and review. I have looked back and found my 5 very favorite products or companies. These items are so good, I would definitely purchase them!

1. Lipstick Queen Big Bang Illusion Gloss ($20.00 USD www.lipstickqueen.com) — is probably the best gloss I have tried. Its light reflecting particles create the illusion of fuller lips without irritating ingredients. And it is creamy, not sticky. FAB!

2. Anything from Kenzo (www.kenzousa.com)! From their fragrances to their skincare items, Kenzo is all about quality and just plain fabulosity! Their scents are very subtle and fresh, like the Eau de Fleur de The – Tea (1.7 oz , $55.00 USD).

3. EcoTools (www.parispresents.com/EcoTools_s/36.htm) Makes the most wonderful — and affordable — makeup brushes and tools and are created from recycled and sustainable materials. I’m really digging the Foundation Brush ($5.99 USD) and the Recycled Aluminum Retractable Kabuki Brush ($7.99 USD) right now, but their are so many to choose from!

4. Tigi Love, Peace & The Planet line is a really fantastic eco-friendly line for your hair. The Eco Awesome Cranberry Orange Mint Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner($19.95 each USD) smells out of this world! It’s not up on the TIGI Website yet, but it should be soon.

5. LUSH (www.lushusa.com) makes lovely fresh handmade bath and beauty items. I really love their bath bombs! What a fun treat. But they also make quality skincare and haircare.

These are just a few of my favorite products that I have tried. I have been so lucky to love almost everything that I have received. You are welcome to peruse my blog for other awesome items that you haven’t tried yet!

EcoTools — Fabulous Earth-Friendly Beauty Tools

EcoTools is one of my new favorite brands. This is because the are incredibly earth-friendly and they work fantastically well! And bonus — they are very affordable.

The brushes are made with cruelty free synthetic taklon bristles, recycled aluminum ferules (the piece that connects the bristles to the handle), and highly sustainable bamboo handles.  

Some of my top picks are:

 Bamboo 6 Piece Brush Set ($12.99 USD) : Are you kidding me with this price?  Wow! This fab set includes a blush brush, an eyeshading brush, an eyeliner brush, a concealer brush and a lash and brow groomer. The  brushes are SO soft and apply products very evenly. The set also includes a natural cotton & hemp brush roll.   

 Recycled Aluminum Retractable Kabuki Brush ($7.99 USD) : This is a great brush for applying powders. I use it to either apply mineral makeup or powder over my foundation. Just swirl in powder, tap off access and apply. It gives you a very smooth canvas for your bronzer and/or blush.

Eco-Foam Cleasing Sponges ($2.99 USD for 12) : Made with natural soybean oil and 100% cotton, which are sustainable materials. I LOVE these sponges! You apply your cleanser to the soft side and it removes every trace of make-up and gunk from the face.

There are other great brushes and tools available as well such as a Recycled Brow Grooming Kit ($9.99 USD), Foundation Brush ($5.99 USD) and Bamboo Mini Brushes ($3.99 USD for a set of 6).  I highly recommend these fabulous beauty tools!
