A helping hand from ECover

Today, Thursday 15th October is World Hand Washing Day and the lovely people at Ecover sent me a really lovely package in conjunction with this day, so look out for the hashtag #BeautifulHands. The idea behind the campaign is to motivate and mobilise people around the world to improve their handwashing habits by washing their hands with soap at critical moments throughout each day. The campaign is dedicated to raising awareness of handwashing with soap as a key approach to disease prevention.

Now the cold weather has set in, Ecover think we should take a closer look at our hands.  Dry and sore skin is something many people encounter in the colder months and in order to do their bit, Ecover use plant and mineral based ingredients within their products to ensure they are kinder to your skin than other much more chemical-heavy cleaning products.

Ecover kindly sent me some Multi Action Wipes in Pomegranate and Lime scent.  I use a lot of wipes at home alongside my anti-bacterial sprays to cover all eventualities and for ease of use when it comes to cleaning.  These wipes have no chemical scent too them whatsoever, but clean my surfaces and tiles as good as any other wipe.

The Zero Washing up Liquid and it has no scent at all.  You only need one squeeze to wash a sink full of dishes and whilst it does a thorough job, it doesn't generate excess bubbles like other brands.

Finally there is the Multi Action Spray and this is by far the best product of the three because you can use it everywhere!  I have cleaned my worktops, my sink, my floors and even my mirror and most impressive of all it leaves a streak free shine, so there is no need to get my vinegar and newspaper out to finish the job.

Naturally being a beauty blogger and a wife, I need to ensure my hands are kept in tip top condition and also included within my package was Qtica Intense cuticle repair balm, Zoya nail polish in shade Amanda which is described as being a medium muted peach creme with pink, brown and mauve undertones and Liz Earle Superskin Hand Serum which is rich in GLA, omega-3 and antioxidants. Everything you need for soft, smooth, pretty moisturised hands.

Have you ever used Ecover products at home?

  8. I'm not sure if I've tried ecocover.... If I did I haven't tried it since. Probably because of the price.....
    I'll have another look when I'm in the supermarket

  9. Never used them, they look like decent products though and I do like good, anti-bacterial hand soaps.

  10. It is gross how many people don't wash their hands after using the toilet. There's a sign in a local bathroom saying "did your neighbour wash their hands?" It shames people into it.

  13. I love ecover products and always look in the supermarket to see if they have a product that matches a nasty chemically one that I need to buy. Fantastic products.

  14. I love any brand that uses the easy clean wipes- but one that doesn't contain nasty chemicals is much better as often I go gloveless which I know I shouldn't! x

  19. I like ecover products but they are far too expensive in France, perhaps they are more reasonably priced in UK.

  20. I have never used ecover or heard of it before. How much are products priced at on average?

  21. I haven't ever used them but I would try them. I have hand wash and handcream at every sink so no excuse for not cleaning and then making them soft.

  22. I have used their washing up liquid before but I haven't tried the other products yet.

  25. I can't say I've heard of ecover before, but these look pretty good. I use to many anti-bac wipes it would be good to try these ones out

  26. we are big fans of Ecover here too, I've been using their laundry liquid for about ten years now! x

  27. I have never used Ecover products, but as I get older I am seeing the need to be kinder to the environment that we live in. I know that simply recycling isn't enough these days. We use wipes a lot, so perhaps these would be a great first start x
