Green Grab Bag Review

My love for subscription services and my quest for greener living collided this month when I received a package containing July’s Green Grab Bag. Awesomeness!  Green Grab Bag by White Apricot brings you a sampling of some of the very best natural, organic and vegan beauty products every single month for only $15 with free shipping.  This is the perfect way to dip your toes in the natural/organic waters and try out some new products without spending a lot of money on something you may not even like.

This is what I saw when I opened my package:

 

How pretty is that?  It is literally in a “green” gift bag!  Beautiful presentation!  And it had a lot of goodies inside!

 

Simply Bath Salts Lavender Blend

Lavender has a lovely scent and natural relaxation properties.  This blend includes more than a dozen pure essential minerals to help relax and rehydrate your skin as you soak your troubles away in the tub.  I love taking a nice warm bath at the end of the day, and the scent of lavender is very calming.

 

EO Certified Organic Deodorant Spray

Speaking of lavender, this organic deodorant spray is lavender scented as well, and does a great job of neutralizing and eliminating the source of body odor.  The cool spray is very refreshing, especially when it’s boiling hot outside, as it has been!  It feels very nice on the skin, and most importantly, it’s effective!

 

La Mellite Strawberry Lemon Sugar Scrub

This nifty, wonderfully scented scrub came in a cool, recyclable cup, with no plastic or excess packaging.  The smell was nice and fresh, and it is a very gentle scrub, good for the face or body.

 

GO Skin Care Ginger Face Moisturizer

From The Ginger People, this fresh smelling ginger face moisturizer is zingy and hydrating, leaving your skin feeling firm and toned and smelling wonderfully!  There are so many amazing health benefits to ginger, it seems appropriate that it would be made into beauty products as well!

 

CoTZ PURE Sunscreen

This sunscreen is made with zero nasty chemicals!  No synthetics, no preservatives, no chemical sunscreens.  The texture is silky smooth and creamy, and is even water resistant with a broad spectrum SPF of 30.  This formulation prevents heat build up in the skin, while protecting from the harmful sun rays.  Definitely a must have summer staple!

 

Mighty Leaf Tea

What day of pampering and relaxation would be complete without a nice, organic cup of tea?  Mighty Tea takes your tea very seriously, and hand crafts each and every single bag, hand picking only the very best ingredients to satisfy the soul.  This tea will change the way you look at your old stand by tea bags.

 

Opalima Beauty Eyeshadows

Made from natural mineral hues, these fine powders are true multitaskers that can be used as a shadow, liner or even a brow enhancer.

 

Included in the Green Grab Bag are several coupon codes for the products included, which will come in handy when you fall in love with the new brands they introduce you to each month.  I think this is a super fun way to try out new products, and with Green Grab Bag, you know that the products are tried and true, with the benefit of also being natural and organic.

TruKid!

Finding natural bath products for kids is, surprisingly, not as easy as a quick trip to the store.  A lot of products that are marked “natural” actually have some pretty nasty chemicals in them that you may not care to bathe your babies in.  And if you have your children with you when you are looking for bath products, well then you know that they are immediately drawn to the fun, colorful bottles.  Aren’t we all?

So what if you could find a product, actually a whole line of products, that are natural, organic, cruelty free, BPA free, eco friendly and come in fun bottles in bright colors that kids are drawn to?

Allow me to introduce you to TruKid, All natural body care for kids!

TruKid is a company that truly wants to make you and your children’s lives healthier.  Their website is filled with information and tips and tricks to keep you healthier, along with fun songs and rhymes for your kids to sing while they wash up.  Oh, and the songs are kid pleasers, for sure!  What kid doesn’t want to sing about stinky feet?  There will be lots of giggles while they are learning healthy habits, and that, of course, is awesome.

We had fun with the Bubbly Body Wash in the tub, Noah was instantly drawn to the bright blue bottle.  I have to say, the scent is really nice!  Very fresh, kind of citrus-y.  And it made plenty of nice smelling bubbles for washing up.

The sunscreen smelled just as wonderful!  It went on really nicely, not greasy and no funky chemical smell like you typically find with kid’s sunscreen products.

Another neat thing about TruKid, is that they have color coded and marked their product bottles with the “TruKid Learning System” symbols, which helps children to instantly identify what part of their body each product is for.  Little ones love to be independent, and TruKid is helping them to do that while they learn good hygiene habits as well!

TruKid has very generously offered a coupon code to my readers, so that you can all try out their awesome products for yourselves.  Just visit their website, and with an order of $30 or more, you will receive a FREE Bubbly Body Wash!  Just enter coupon code “bubblymom”.  (Limit one use per customer.)
