Newman’s Own Product Review

Newman’s Own Organic: Product Review and Giveaway

Newmans Own Blogger BoxI have a confession – before I started this blog I had an aversion to “organic” products. I believed that they were somehow inferior to their non-organic counterparts. Through the past 12 month of blogging I have discovered that there is nothing “inferior” or “less” about organic products. In fact, many times the thing that makes a product stand out from competitors.

Back about 7 years ago I went to the San Diego Zoo with my now husbands sisters. This was very exciting, as the plan was to drop Jason off at work and meet up with sister #1 at the local park and ride. The plan was to ride with sister #1, and meet up with sister #2 and have lunch and walk around the San Diego Zoo. The first stop was lunch, as none of the accompanying children had eaten yet. The 3 of us had all brought lunch, and sister #2 had brought a bag of “Newman’s O’s” to share with us all. At the time I politely declined because I was happy with my non organic chocolate creme cookies.

Since that day I have gotten to know both my sister-in-laws much better and not only are they wonderful mothers, and family members but they also know their food. Prior to meeting these two, I had not really considered reading the ingredients of packaging. I learned early on that to be in this family, label reading and ingredient awareness matters. This is not a negative in any way, but rather a way that all mothers should adopt.

A brand that was brought to my attention as a good positive company was Newman’s Own Organic. While I was a little bewildered and confused as to why she was such a fan, as soon as I began reading on my own, I realized that Newman’s Own goodness extends beyond just food and into the charitable world.

CastileSoap.com Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway

Vertical Castile SoapBack in the early 2000’s I was having issues with adult acne, and other blemishes on my otherwise flawless face and while searching for remedies, Castile Soap was suggested to me. At the time, I had never heard of castile soap or where to even locate it. As luck would have it, there was a small supply at our local retail store.

I purchased a simple bar of castile soap and within a couple of days of use, I discovered that my blemishes cleared up and my skin overall looked healthier. I continued my daily use of this new “wonder” soap and as time passed it was as though my face went back in time. As I have aged about a decade since that discovery, I am now finding those old issues cropping up.

Since these issues are cropping up again, I began looking for a comparable castile soap  to replace my formerly beloved bars. In my searching I came across a company by the name of CastileSoap.com. CastileSoap.com specialized in only castile soap based soaps. while utilizing other natural and essential oils to add benefit to each bar. Castile Soap is not only bio-degradable but also organic, and contains no harsh elements, and it is safe to use on children and pets!
