“Summer Fun” Giveaway!

Summer is my favorite season of the year!

PMDSCN6753_thumb[1]

So let’s get it started with a GIVEAWAY

sponsored by Eco Natural Soap .

You can also visit Alicia’s blog HERE !

I love all of their products and when they came out with Mineral Make up, I was anxious to order some. I’ve worn Mineral make up for years now and think it gives me a natural look. My skin is super sensitive so all I wear now is a little concealer under my eyes and Mineral make up. I don’t wear anything on my eyes or even lipstick any more.

I’ve used my Mineral make up and I am very pleased with it. I love the way it goes on and the fact that it lasts all day.

There were some other products in my package for me to use and then review.

The perfume is wonderful...a fresh clean scent that is true lavender. My hubby is the one that uses the lip balms and he likes them all. He uses the unscented the most.

And I love all of the bars of soap. This Coconut Milk will be perfect for summer time baths!

So now I would like to give a little review on a product I got from Eco Natural Soap last year.

DSCN3020

We were at a State Park here in Florida and decided to walk down a trail to the river. It was hot and humid and in the middle of summer. We had been on that trail many times before but the conditions were just right that day for mosquitoes. So I put the ‘Don’t bug me’ repellant on my legs and arms. They always go after me, so hubby didn’t put any on at all. Well....they came after us both! We didn’t get far down the trail before we decided to turn back. I didn’t have ANY bites on my legs OR arms...but I had bites on the back of my neck. And hubby had been bitten, too. So I thought this was a good test. NO BITES where I had put the mosquito repellant. (I don’t want anyone to be afraid of Florida in the summer. This only happened to us once.) It only takes a very small amount of the salve and it does not irritate your skin at all. I couldn’t live without it now!

So would you like to have a few products from this amazing store?

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

My idea of summer fun will be staying cool...lol! It has already been so hot and humid here. I guess I will try to visit the beach more often in the morning and spend the hot afternoons indooors somewhere interesting, or reading a good book.

~Sia McKye~ said...

I really enjoy using natural products and have a good friend who makes some--she's also a master herbologist and I use some of those. She doesn't make make-up. I would love to try eco's mineral make up,light warm foundation/concealer--not that I wear a lot of makeup, and I'd love to try their rosmary lemon. I love the smell of Rosemary!
