We are hoping that most of you are making at least one change for Earth Day this year. Some ideas include but are not limited to recycling, changing your cleaning products, reducing your electricity consumption, walking instead of driving, etc… I have made some changes, one of those changes include altering some of my health and beauty products. I went to our local farmers market and bought handmade soap, bought LUSH shampoo, and have been using vitamin E for lotion. While I like all of those products I’m always willing to try a product that might be healthier or a better fit for me and my family. Please remember I am learning and like many of you I am eco-challenged and beginning my journey of going green! As Green and Clean Mom’s sister I’m inspired but I’m not perfect. I always recommend you do your own research and check out the Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Reviews.
Recently I was given an opportunity to try a new product called SEED. I was lucky enough to be able to try their invigorating citrus thyme , the simply unscented conditioning , and their invigorating citrus thyme . I liked all of these products; I liked it even more that SEED maintains that their products are 100% natural and that they list all of their ingredients. I liked the gritty content of the soap, the smell of it, and the size of it; you’re getting your money’s worth. The scent did not mix with my body chemistry so I am going to have to try another scent. I like the conditioning shampoo but I think I would try the scented next time and I’m use to liquid shampoo/conditioner so that took some getting use to. The lotion was above all my favorite. I have really really dry skin and have not yet found a lotion that fits my skin type. I think I found “my” lotion. Not only did I like the smell of the lotion but I liked the way it made my skin feel re-hydrated vs. greasy. I use a lot of lotion so I would find it helpful if the product came in larger quantities. Not only is SEED helping the environment but they are offering some promotions this month that might help you.
