Ecostore USA $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway (and Review)


Sometimes it seems like it's hard to be "green" while raising young children. Who has the time or money to make sure that your products are environmentally friendly? Well if you are looking for little ways to make a difference each day, Ecostore USA is a company worth looking into.

Ecostore USA carries products for baby care, hair care, household products and even products the furry members of your family. Ecostore USA products contain No Nasty Chemicals and the site does a great job of listing what you will NOT find in their products with information about each one.

All of their 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.

I received a generous invitation to review 2 products from Ecostore USA. I chose the Nappy Balm and the Baby Shampoo.

Nappy Balm

Isn't Nappy Balm a fun name? In case you didn't know, in some parts of the world they call a diaper a nappy. Since Ecostore was founded in New Zealand, this diaper cream is called Nappy Balm.

When I decided to try this product, I wasn't sure if it would really work on diaper rash. After all, you need a product with some zinc oxide, right? Wrong! This product is entirely plant based and it works just great.

My little Eli gets diaper rash pretty often when he is teething. I tried out this balm a few times and the redness disappeared. At first I was surprised that the Balm came in a tub rather than a tube. Then I realized it didn't really matter because either way mommy is going to get some on her hands. This way you can actually control the amount of balm that you are using a little better.

Baby Shampoo

We have already used the baby shampoo several times, and it works great! It is not strongly scented or perfumy, like many store brands. Rather it has a natural fresh smell. I think it smells nice and cleans my dirty boys' hair just as well as any other shampoo we've used. The best part is that I don't have to stress so much about the boys accidentally drinking the bath water because no harm will come to your baby or our waterways from this shampoo!


The generous folks at Ecostore USA are going to give one Honey Mommy reader a $25 Gift Certificate to be used on any product from their website. Thank you so much Ecostore USA!
