OnlyGreen Review and Giveaway

I'm always trying to live a little greener and was happy to try out a couple of products courtesy of Marni Labrash of OnlyGreen.  OnlyGreen is a relatively new company that sells a wide range of eco-friendly products.  I have perused the website a fair amount to learn more about what they sell and am very interested in trying out several other things too.  In addition to the hand and foot cream that I am reviewing, they really do offer a huge variety of products.  They sell everything from SoapBerries to cloth diapers to coffee and tea.  They also have several cleaning products that I'd like to try out as I stay away from anything with strong chemicals for several reasons these days. 

For this review, I received some Moisturizing Therapy Foot Cream as well a some Moisturizing Therapy Hand Cream.  I'll just write a bit about each from my perspective and then post some of the information from the website about each.

Foot Cream-  I don't often use foot cream but I need to use it more since I run alot and end up with dry (very sore) feet quite often these days.  The cream was very thick but my very dry feet seemed to soak up all the moisture quite happily.  It has all sorts of natural ingredients in it including wintergreen which I assume is where the nice scent and tingly quality come from.  It was quite pleasant to put up my feet for a while..the only other thing I could have used was a nice foot massage.  (Hello Jeremy...hint! hint!)

This will give you an idea of how thick the foot cream is.

Moisturizing Hand Cream- This was a bit different than I expected.  The scent wasn't my favourite initially but it's started to grow on me.  The cream is loaded with natural ingredients such as grape seed oil, jojoba, sweet almond, fruit juice, shea butter, and mandarin peel oil.  My favourite aspect of the cream is that it's not greasy.  It absorbs quickly and you are still able to do things like type on the computer without leaving greasy streaks everywhere.  The bottle also promises other benefits such as improving the texture of the skin and re-establishing the PH balance. 

After checking out the website, I did a pretty good job of explaining the hand cream!  The only other thing that could be mentioned with respect to the products is that the foot cream is supposed to destroy the bacteria that causes perspiration odour.  I might have to return the foot massage favour if that's the case!

The Giveaway:
Marni is going to give away the same two items that I received.  The winner will receive the Moisturing Hand Cream and Foot Cream as pictured.  The value of these items is $32.00.

As usual, I will number the entries and use www.random.org to select a winner.
