About Me

My name is Christen, I'm 30 years old and a stay-at-home mom to my three beautiful girls, Lauren, Hailey, and Farrah. My husband David and I live on scenic Long Island and we love it. Our party of 5 keeps pretty busy, but I try to set aside as much time as I can to blog (which isn't as often as I'd like these days).

Product Haul: ecomom

Thanks to Citrus Lane, I discovered a wonderful resource for eco-centered moms!

In December's Citrus Lane box, "A Few of Our Favorite Things", I received a $15.00 gift voucher to spend at www.ecomom.com. As a rookie mom, I'm still not too familiar with a lot of eco-friendly and organic products for babies and toddlers, but I'm always looking for new ones to try.

I was able to buy three items with my $15.00 gift voucher. All I had to pay for was Shipping.

Clockwise From Left: Yes To Baby Carrots Face & Nose Wipes (30 Wipes) $5.99, Dapple Toy and Surface Cleaner Canister (35 Wipes) $4.49, Yes To Carrots Lip Tint (Sunset Pink) $4.49

Yes To Baby Carrots Face & Nose Wipes
I was anxious to get this product because I wanted to eliminate the pile of damp washcloths accumulating in my household laundry bin. After a long blissful nap of drooling and dreams of sugar plum fairies, my daughter's mouth tends to get a little...crusty. This pack of wipes makes cleanup easy. However, after only one use, my daughter's face and neck started to get red and eventually broke out into a rash (luckily it cleared up within a few hours). I can't recommend this product without knowing why she had such a bad reaction though. Totally disappointed! 

Update: I didn't want to give up on these wipes, so I tested them on a less sensitive area - her hands. She didn't have the same reaction. I used the wipe on a small section of her cheek, and again, no reaction. Since then I've used these wipes several times. I have no idea why she had an allergic reaction from the first use. 

Dapple Toy and Surface Cleaner Canister
I have no complaints about this product. I'm familiar with the brand Dapple and I've been wanting to try their products so that I can compare them to Dreft, which is what I currently use. These wipes are great for any toys that your baby will undoubtedly drool all over, but can't be washed with the laundry. My daughter recently started teething - anything she can reach, grab, and lift is going into her mouth to gnaw on. I've already used a wipe or two on her exersaucer.

Yes To Carrots Lip Tint in Sunset Pink
I really like this little lip tint! It applies easily and leaves a cool minty sensation on my lips. The tint is darker than I anticipated, a rust color. This will probably become one of my daily makeup staples for the time being. Unfortunately, this lip tint has been discontinued on ecomom.
