I'm back...w/ a giveaway & review for ya!

Share

I'm back from a much needed break! I hope your Christmas was Merry & New Year Happy! My sweet little baby is now 5 weeks old, and the 2 other kiddos are adjusting well. We had a wonderful Christmas & it's now back to reality. Back to school, back to work. ~~Sigh~~

I would like to share with you a review & GIVEAWAY on some new products today! I had the opportunity to review the new line of Earth-Friendly bags from Ecotools, by Alicia Silverstone.

Launching in December 2009 at Walgreens and Target stores, the line includes a complete set of five cosmetic bags, ranging from a brush bag with a brush set to an overnight bag. Each bag is produced with a natural hemp material and uses a recycled PET lining.
What I liked about these Eco-Tools bags:
1. The 5 Piece Brush Set & Bag is my favorite. Priced at $15.99 it comes with 4 brushes. Also in the bag is a coupon & tips from Alicia Silverstone on how to get the most out of each brush. There is a finishing brush, blush brush, angles eye brow brush, & lash & brow groomer. The packaging of the set is made from 30% post-consumer recycled content. I love the natural colors & look of the brushes. It comes in a handy little zippered pouch and a spot for each brush, with a clear pocket on the other side.
2. My 2nd favorite bag is the Cosmetic Bag. All of the bags are earth friendly in that they are
  • Made with natural hemp material.
  • Lining is made with recycled plastic (PET).
  • Floral design is printed with non-toxic inks.
  • Hangtags printed on tree-free stone paper.
It's a great zippered bag, perfect size for your cosmetics & priced at $8.99
3. Another bag I will definitely use is the Train Case. It is only $14.99. It has a zip top. I love the removable clear compartment inside. It just Velcros in & out of the bag...very convenient!
4. And the last bag, which I have 3 extras to give away!!! - is the Overnight Bag. It retails for $19.99 & is the largest of the bags. It is still compact enough for traveling & has 2 clear removable small bags on 1 side, and a large clear zippered compartment on the other. I LOVE the idea of the removable compartments!




What I didn't like about the Eco-Tools bags by Alicia Silverstone:
1.As far as the quality of these bags, you can't beat it. Lots of great features in each bag & eco-friendly too! I personally, don't care for the look of the bags, but that's just a personal thing. I'd like a more sleek design & color. But if you like eco-friendly quality, functional, products, you will love these bags!!

Want It? Click here to visit Eco-Tools Website.

Win It! I am giving away 3 of the #4 bag above, the $19.99 Overnight Bag! How to enter to win:
1. Simply leave a comment here to enter. Be sure you include your email address if it is not on your profile. Winners will ONLY be contacted via email.
2. For an EXTRA entry, leave an additional comment & let me know your favorite thing about The Gift Closet. A little feedback, please. ;)
3. Contest ends Sunday January 10, 2010 @ midnight & is open to US residents only.

See you tomorrow for Tuesday's Tip!

Some of my favorite things about your site...I like your Thought of the Day area and I like that your site isn't too cluttered. It's easy to navigate around and I don't get hung up with hundreds of things trying to load at once. Congratulations on the newest addition to your family. :-)

I love the Scrabble Pendants in your Gift Closet. I think it's a genius idea. I love that you can make names and saying, as they pertain to the customer. I would have never thought that something like scrabble pieces could be used in such an extraordinary way. This is the first time I have heard of this idea. And it makes for a great gift. Thanks for sharing.

I wasn't really impressed with the style at first, but ya know... it kinda grows on you. :) At least it is unique and not like every other carry case out there!

tnshadylady at gmail.com

Deb said...

I like your blog because I know you will showcase things that are unique, and not the same things a thousand other blogs showcase. Kudos for keeping it original!

carolpie said...

These are cute and very useful! It would be a great item to have!

carolpie said...

I like how you have the giveaways, of course, but that you have things I am interested in. I like how you tell about gifts that I would never think about or even know about! And that is cool because there are some people that I just don't KNOW what to give as a present.
I really like the Thought for the Day such as today's:Return to the Lord, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love... Joel 2:13
Excellent!
Your site is fun to read, and you do a great job!

kngmckellar said...

This is a very useful item and very pretty too! Thanks for the giveaway!

kngmckellar said...

I like your blog because is very clean and not cluttered. I like your giveaways! Your thought of the day is great!! I like the bible passage.
