Nature's Gate Review & GIVEAWAY! Ends 11/15




I've become a fan of natural products in the last few months. Safer, healthier, and Eco-friendly products is something that I am proud to use in my household, with children running around the house? Why wouldn't I want a safer environment for them?

Recently, I contacted the company Nature's Gate and asked them if I could review a couple of their products. Nature's Gate agreed to providing me with two wonderful products to test out and review for my readers. Even more exciting, they have also agreed to sponsor a giveaway for one of the products that I am about the review. Two winners will be selected to receive a product that I have grown to love.

Before I begin, I'd like to share the Nature's Gate Philosophy and Mission with you. I found it quite interesting and hope that you will as well. Please click on the link above to read the philosophy and mission of Nature's Gate.

Did you know that they are also committed to raising awareness on clean water? You can read more about what they do and how you can help by "Joining Us In Giving The Gift Of Clean Water". I highly recommend reading the entire website at Nature's Gate to find interesting and important information on the company and other features.

As I mentioned above, I had the opportunity in trying two wonderful products.



Chamomile & Lemon Verbena Deodorant Stick- This product arrived just in time for tedious task ahead...chores. First, I took a shower to cleanse off any other trace of deodorant that I had been wearing and applied this product to my underarms. This deodorant is a clear solid that glides on easily without leaving any light colored residue on your clothing. The scent is light yet, pleasant and not overpowering as some deodorant scents.

I had spent hours cleaning and moving furniture around in my bedroom before completing the first "sniff test". My son was sitting there watching me as I raised my underarm to my nose and of course his reaction was "ewe mom!" as he wrinkled his nose up at me. The Chamomile & Lemon Verbena Deodorant Stick had passed it's first round. No disgusting odors and the scent was still there. I thought that I would have to replenish the deodorant but, I was wrong. Next, on to the next task...my closet! You might not think that this would be a big task but, have you seen my closet?! Boxes of odds and ends, magazines, clothing, pictures, and much more loaded my closet where you couldn't find anything. After spending another few hours cleaning, reorganizing, and distributing my clutter into various piles (Keep, toss, donate, etc.) I had performed yet, another sniff test which proved to be a desirable product.

Conclusion? This deodorant is a keeper and at a mere cost of $5.99 for 1.7oz, I'll admit this is worth every penny and I am a frugal shopper.

Our Certified Organic essences are fresh from the field, locally grown in California on land dedicated to growing Nature’s Gate botanical essences. At the family owned Organic farm, each plant receives individual care, ensuring the highest purity and quality. The farm’s water source is derived from the winter rains and snow pack of the Sierra Nevadas.
-Paraben Free
-No Propylene Glycol
-No Aluminum
-With Baking Soda to help neutralize odor




Pomegranate Sunflower Velvet Moisture Liquid Soap- This happens to be my favorite product out of both items that I tested. The scent is amazing and delicious. (NOT meant to be eaten) I quickly removed the liquid hand soap from my kitchen and replaced it with this bottle. I applied a small amount to my palms and lathered them until I felt it was time to rinse the soap from my hands. Honestly, it felt as if I was applying lotion and didn't want to wash them too quickly. I have grown to love this hand soap and have used it several times since it's arrival. I can feel a noticeable change in the texture of my hands, they seem to have become a little smoother since my usage after a week.

I will definately keep this hand soap in mind for my next purchase. You too can purchase this liquid hand soap at $6.99 for 16 FL oz.

This luxuriant soap creates ultra rich lather and is packed with antioxidants of Pomegrante, Acai and White Tea that help protect hands from the signs of aging. Infused with 7 Natural Moisture Boosters to hydrate so hands never feel dry after washing. Delivers great value, dispensing 250+ pumps (washes) per bottle.


BUY IT:
The products I have mentioned above in my review as well as several other Nature's Gate products are available for purchase online or you may utilize the store locator to find a retailer near you.

WIN IT:
Nature's Gate has generously offered to send two of my readers (1) one bottle of the Pomegranate Sunflower Velvet Moisture Liquid Soap. Please read the directions carefully before you enter.

Open to US Residents, ages 18+ (void in AK & HI)

Giveaway will end on November 15, 2009 at 11:59pm CST
