Ecco Bella Products Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have another super great company that I would like to tell you about called Ecco Bella that carries natural skincare. I was very fortunate to be able to review two of their long list of really awesome products:

1. Lavender Eau De Parfum
2. Cleansing Milk and Make Up Remover

Both of these products are fantastic that it was hard to know where to start so I will start with the Cleansing Milk first. Ecco Bella's Cleansing Milk is preservative free, can be used by people with sensitive skin because it is 70% organic! It has so many good things in that bottle that it would be hard to give you all of the ingredients but here are a few:

1. Organic Aloe Vera
2. Vitamin Cells
3. CoQ10
4. Vitamin C
5. Vitamin E
6. Essential oils of Lavender
7. Rosemary Leaf
8. Geranium

And the list could go on but you get the drift. This bottle contains trillions of micro-spheres that deliver nutrients lutein, lycopene, CoQ10, astaxanthin, Vitamin C & E undiluted & potent for anti-aging benefits! You basically can take off your makeup and wash your face all in one! Just lather onto dry skin and rinse it off! How simple can that be? Best part is that it will not dry out your skin. It just lifts off your makeup and dirt leaving you with a clean complexion.
I know I found it hard to believe too until I tried it. I was so amazed!

And it smells so great. I do have to tell you that you will smell the faintness of lavender so if you don't like lavender you might not be too crazy about this as I am, but it is very faint. Mmm, it reminds me of being out on the first day of spring and all the trees and plants are blooming for the first time. That is what I think when I smell this wonderful cleansing milk.

Oh, and they never test on animals either and their products are gluten free and contain no water. They suggest that we all start at the age of 17 and continue all the way to 107! Well, I wish someone had been around when I was 17 and told me all of this. I could have probably avoided alot of these wrinkles that I see today. Not too sure about the 107 part either. I guess if you can still live at home and take care of yourself it would be all right.

Now, for the product that I absolutely love, the Lavender Eau De Parfum. This little baby has some ingredients that will surprise you because it did me when I first read them:

1. French Lavender
2. Morrocan Rosemary
3. Egyptian Geranium

Now, did I not tell you that it would surprise you? Who would have thought to put those three together to come up with an unforgettable scent? It has a delicate quality because of the lavender but it also exudes a warm, tender, slightly spiced scent.

This is one that you will want to wear when you are feeling romantic and sensual. Because it is Parfum (not quite a perfume) it lasts longer than a cologne.

All of Ecco Bella parfums are made from real essential oils and smell unique on each person. So, what I smell when I put it on may not be the same scent that you smell on yourself. I kinda like that whole idea! Everybody can have their own personal scent!

They have other parfums that include Lemon Verbena, Bourbon Vanilla and Organic Ambrosia. They all sound very nice but I think I will stick with the one that I chose. To make your scent last longer they suggest that you layer your scents.

For instance, put on your body lotion of the same fragrance then spray and also include your hair so it can smell just as magnificent as you! Using Ecco Bella's parfums will surround your body in nature's seductive, mood altering experience of true aromatherapy.

Ecco Bella has a program that they really believe in called the Invincible Spirit and here is how it works:
Giving a pet in need of a loving home. Volunteering for weekend park clean-ups. Grocery shopping for a neighbor. All deserve to be honored. In recognition of your Invincible Spirit we’ll email you a $10 instant gift certificate. We'd also be inspired by your Invincible Spirit experience. Tell us your story. By either clicking on the link above or on the picture will take you to the form to fill out to sign up and get you started on being your own Invincible Spirit and getting a $10 Gift Certificate. I really hope that you will take the challenge and feel good about yourself at the same time getting a reward for doing good! Hint: This will be part of the giveaway in the Leaping Lizards Prize Package. So, by doing it now, you save yourself alot of time later.

Here is what I found out about Sally who started Ecco Bella in the About Us section:
I started Ecco Bella out of protest to the use of animals for testing cosmetics, and it expanded to inventing products from the universe of organics and nutraceuticals as well.

Thanks to you, I’ve been able to keep my “activist eyes” on every aspect of Ecco Bella. Your support has encouraged me to formulate outstanding natural and organic skin care and cosmetics. My mission is to use my knowledge and passion for you, to create products that make your body and soul brighter, finer, smoother, and happier!

Besides speaking out for animals and the environment, our products help you conserve money. Why? Each Ecco Bella product multi-tasks. For example, all the skin care products are so rich in beneficial ingredients they claim both anti-aging and anti-blemish benefits combined! That means fewer products to buy, and they really work!
I hope you take the time to read the rest of her story. I just don't have the space to tell everyone's story to the fullest. I do however, like to give you a little insight into what makes some companies great, some okay and some are over the top beyond words. It gives me hope when I find companies that really care about our planet, our lives and our well being.

Ecco Bella has been so kind as to offer one of these products to the winner of my Leaping Lizard's Prize Package that starts on February 23rd. I went back and forth trying to decide what you would like and I know that Lavender is a personal choice so here is what I am gonna do: The winner will get to choose which one of these herself that she would like. That way I know you got what you wanted instead of what I like the best. Good Luck!
