EcoMom Featured Product Review + Giveaway. CLOSED

Recently EcoMom sent some samples of a couple products that they carry. One is Nieves C Perfect Skin and the other was Bon Ami Dish Soap. A bit of a random pair, but both things I was wanting to try out.

Shandell’s Review

I used the skin care oil first. I followed the directions to apply it to clean + damp skin and used it about 3 times in a row. It made my skin soft and didn’t leave an oily finish. Sadly, I did break out after using it. I’m not sure whether or not it’s related because my skin is super sensitive and even more so when I’m pregnant. I did stop using it and will keep it to try again when my skin isn’t so overwhelmed with the pregnancy hormones coursing through my body, then maybe I’ll get a more accurate response. From other user reviews it seems that even women when acne-prone skin are able to use it without problems. It has a pleasant but not overwhelming smell and best of all, the ingredients are all natural!

It is supposed to naturally reduce the appearance of scarring, sun spots, and other damage to the skin while reducing further damage from occurring. I do have one sun spot forming just above my cheek bone that I’ll be sure to use the Perfect Skin oil on in the future.


I used the Bon Ami dish soap on some of the dishes that we can only hand wash. I was sent a sample of Tangerine + Thyme and Free + Clear. I tend to lean towards soaps and detergents that are unscented. I use free + clear laundry detergent and I had no idea that there was a such thing as free + clear dish soap! I was impressed with how well it cleaned and that it even got the coffee smell out of a plastic travel mug. I’m sold, and at $4.00 for 25 ounces I may be adding this to my shopping cart soon!

    I would probably get some stuff relating to starting solids with our little guy. Maybe some Boon Squirt spoons and the Boon Catch Bowl.

    Fun! I'm pretty sure I'd use the gift card for a GroVia AIO diaper in the nature print.

    I think I'd use the gift card for a Grovia AIO diaper too. My sister is teaching me about cloth diapers and an AIO seems the way to go for me. 🙂
