So I spread some on her arms and was delighted by the faint shimmer and the fruity smell. (What little girl doesn't like glimmer?) I was delighted in knowing that the product was natural and didn't have a bunch of questionable ingredients like many other products on the market. No artificial anything, no parabens, sulfates, or phlatelets. And made here in the USA!
The scent is a little cloying for me to use it personally, but it's a great, kid-friendly scent and my daughters both say it smells like candy. I love how the scent doesn't remain strong on the skin after it's applied, much like the faint shimmer. I don't exactly want my daughter going out to play every day looking like she's headed to a Lady Gaga show, so this was a perfect, subtle amount.
Sparklehearts Soft Conditioner and my expectations have been easily met. I'm totally in love with the packaging and what's inside doesn't disappoint. My oldest has long, thick hair and this softens and conditions it enough that I can comb out tangles without tears. Like their other products, it's packaged in a pump bottle, which makes doling out the right amount easy for me and my daughter alike.
We're obviously Sparkleheart fans and look forward to trying their whole gamut of products. And since we've had such great experiences, we'll definitely be purchasing through the EcoMom site. Specializing in Eco-Friendly Baby Products, EcoMom offers products that run from food, toys, baby care products, clothing and more. The site is certainly more than just a retail site.
Ecomom is still running their EcoPass program. For $99, you can purchase an annual membership which gives you 15% off of every order and free shipping with no minimum order requirement. If you're going to purchase frequently, I can imagine this would pay for itself quickly.
And now, the part you've been waiting for... the giveaway! EcoMom has graciously offered to give away $20 towards any product in the Ecomom store!
