Ecomom Products Review {Gift Certificate Giveaway}

Ecomom is an online store only featuring a lot of healthy, eco-friendly, organic, and baby-safe products. Ecomom is one of the first online stores that I started shopping when looking for cloth diaper products.  I am pretty sure that it is one of the most popular "Eco-friendly" online shops!

I love the variety of mom-approved items she has, and I know they have some really great sales.  I  have ordered about $60 worth of products from their store, and have no regrets shopping with them!  One of the things I do wait for are daily deal sales and discount codes that get the price reasonably low. When I was contacted to do a review for Ecomom I was so excited!  We were sent a few things to try out that are available now at Ecomom.
 This is my first time using Charlie's Soap, and I am pretty surprised at how well my cloth diapers came out.   For about a tablespoon of powder detergent I was able to do a full load of cloth diapers.  That was pretty neat that so little a detergent was able to work on all those diapers.  I was impressed.  When we started using the diapers washed in Charlie's Soap, I did not have any problems with any ammonia smells.  So I believe that Charlie's soap is great for working on any ammonia problems.  As for any buildup over time---I do not know I was only sent enough to test out one load of cloth diapers.  Stains.  Now I did have a bit of an issue with stains.  I still had some stains remain on some of my white cloth wipes and a onesie.  The Charlie's soap was not so effective when it came to stains I feel, but was great for taking care of ammonia problems! 
Our Thoughts on Charlie's Soap
 From what we have experienced, I know that Charlie's soap works on ammonia.  This is something that is most important to me in laundry soap.  As for any skin reactions on baby:  We did not experience any skin reactions as far as this one load goes.  I am pretty happy at how it works with our cloth diapers on getting it clean!  I am really liking how it turned out-- Charlie's Soap was a nice change in our laundry routine!  The only thing that I noticed was that there were some stains that still remained on a few of my onsies and cloth diapers.  (I threw in a onsie that had a stain to test out how well it took out stains).
Would I personally buy Charlie's Soap?  
Yes I would~ at a great price of $12 for 80 loads sure this is a reasonable price and works great with cloth diapers to my opinion.


SkinKind Products for Men

Another item we were sent to try out was SkinKind Face Scrub and Essential Moisture for men.  Wow, this is an amazing sample we were sent!  I am jealous of this skin care product for men! SkinKind is a really neat company because it has taken upon itself in providing a product that is both Environmentally Kind as well as free from harsh and toxic chemicals.  Not to mention their products address the unique features of men's skin.  Find out more about the Differences of Men's Skin!

Our Thoughts (My Husband's):  
I think the Micofine Face Scrub works great.  It has grittiness to it that really feels great when you're working it on to your face.  It's a great scrub and I have not had anything like it.  It feels good and yeah, my face does feel cleaner after using it.  The Essential Moisture after I use the face scrub feels nice and cool.  It does not have a sticky feeling to it.  The smell of it is ok, it kind of reminds me of Shea butter.  I like SkinKind, and the price is a bit too pricey but if I do not have to use the Face scrub everyday I think that it will go farther.  Would be a great gift, and if my wife did get it for me I'd use this stuff. Ecomom has great products, and this among other SkinKind products are available at
