Ecover Zero Natural Laundry Powder Review

I have been looking for a laundry powder without fragrances or phosphates, so I was pleased to receive a complimentary box of Ecover Zero natural laundry powder from Naturally Savvy

Ecover Laundry Powder ZERO has plant-based and mineral ingredients so it’s safe for my family but strong enough to clean our piles of laundry—and we do have big piles! The powder is biodegradable and not tested on animals. Sounds good to me!
I have tried it on two loads of clothing so far—one white, one colored—and everything came out sparkling clean.
Best of all, I don’t have to fret about harming our health or the environment!
My only warning is that it’s * Not suitable for wool and silk. *
The 48 oz box I have right now should be good for 20 loads on a top-load machine (or 26 on a HE machine).

Ecover gives some eco-washing tips on their site: “Choose the lowest possible washing temperature to reduce your CO2 footprint. Correct dosing reduces the impact of washing on the environment.”

To learn more about the company and what they do, and to see the complete ingredient list of products, you can visit Ecover’s site:

Kiss Nail Dress

As part of my participation in the Influenster community

I received the fabulous “Love VoxBox
You can see my Pinterest board of the contents at:

and read my previous post about the box (see blog archives in sidebar)…

One of the items was a new fashion accessory:
Kiss Nail Dress —the ultimate in nail fashion!
Kiss Nail Dress is a sticker; it is applied in a similar fashion to polish strips.
These nail stickers are easy to use and meant to last up to 10 days.
The good thing is that you can put them on in minutes and take them off in seconds without remover. The stickers fit all nails – tips and toes.
They come in lots of exciting colors & patterns. Some even have 3-dimensional jewels or glittery designs that make them unique, and you can mix-and-match if you’re brave!

I received the sample in a primal leopard print “Sexy” design.
I usually paint my toes but not my hands, so it was fun using these and getting lots of compliments on my exotic kitty nails!
These nail stickers would look fantastic with a leopard print dress (like this one from Karen Kane)

or a leopard print shoulder clutch like the Keegan quilted shoulder clutch found here: http://www.handbagheaven.com/keegan-quilted-shoulder-clutch.html

My favorite item in the box was the Stash Premium Herbal Tea Sampler; a variety pack of Nine Flavored tea bags; two each of: Apple Cinnamon, Chamomile, Lemon Ginger, Licorice Spice, Peppermint, Orange Starfruit, Mango Passionfruit, Wild Raspberry and Blueberry I am a tea addict and love having all the choices in one box! Also, @stash is an all-organic tea. Perfect for every occasion! #stashtea

A close competitor for my favorite item was the Ghirardelli Creamy Devotion™ Gourmet Milk™ chocolate bar. I was planning to take a photo of the partially eaten bar to post. Guess why that didn’t happen…good thing I also received 2 coupons…
Absolutely positively impossible to stop at just one square. Deliciozo. I am devoted.
I’ve always had a special spot in my heart for Ghirardelli, because about 10 years ago I went on a wonderful visit to San Francisco (including Ghirardelli Square), and I adore their assorted SQUARES™ Chocolates. The Creamy Devotion™ bar is only 32% cacao, but I suspect that even dark chocolate aficionados will like the taste.

Truvía ®: I’ve tried it before and was pleased to find a Truvía® sample box (plus coupon) in the LoveVoxBox. This natural sweetener—made from the stevia plant—is delicious to my palate. No calories. No chemical aftertaste (as the tagline says, “honestly sweet”). Perfect for putting in coffee drinks, sweet tea, oatmeal, fruit salad, and anything else you can think of. Truvía® is a good sugar alternative for people with diabetes and is also kosher certified. True love indeed.

Finally, the Gillette Venus razor + Olay™ moisture = soft, smooth legs without using shaving cream! The razor arrived just in time for the warm weather that we’re starting to have down in the South. I hate shaving. This sleek Venus makes the ordeal much more pleasant!
