Winds of change

I have never been one to buy natural or organic products; I have never closely inspected the back of products I buy or use. I use plastic grocery bags (gasp!).

But I'm changing, I am taking baby steps. Buying reusable shopping bags, drinking organic milk, and using natural beauty products. I've heard the rumors about lipstick (whale blubber? can't find proof), looked up ingredients in mascara (some, but not all, are made with lead), and become terrified of lotions (they can contain lots of chemicals that are absorbed into your skin and can cause cancer). I am going to take the steps I can to ensure I'm keeping as many toxins out of my body as possible.

Because I believe this lifestyle starts early (I wish I'd known 10 years ago what I know now), I am giving away a couple products that you can use on your babies and children, that are free of fragrances, dyes, and chemicals. Arbonne is a company that I am falling in love with, and their line of ABC (Arbonne Baby Care) products are all natural and not only will you have a clean, soft baby, but you will also feel good knowing that you are not using chemicals on your sweet little one!

Products included in Giveaway are (1) 8 oz. Hair and Body Wash, and (1) 5.9 oz. Baby Body Oil.

I love this! The aromatherapy sounds fab!

GodseySix said...

I wouldn't mind having item #7090, the unwind massage oil. Or maybe It's just really the massage itself I want! :)

Following your blog AND Twitter! And I think that you must have read my mind, because I have been looking for some natural products that I can use on my 1 1/2 year old. Well, really for all of my boys. But my other 3 are older....maybe they wouldn't mind using Baby Care Products!? Anyway, thanks for a chance to win this. I appreciate it much!

I would love to try the ABC body lotion on my sweet little 12 week old baby boy...he has such sensitive skin I think that may help!

Cortney said...

So I think that covers them all!

I love their baby line. Their lotion is the best. We actually just used up a bottle so I would love a new one!

Jessie said...

Oh and I follow your blog.

Jill said...

I would like to try the baby wash. My little guy has eczema and allergies, so we have to be careful about bathing.

I am really surprised to learn that products that we very commonly use are not what they appear to be for our kids.
