    As much as I used to be a Product Princess, I’ve really tried to slim down the amount of items I use. So, I can’t speak to the toners and additional creams. I do really like Dr. Bronner’s products especially the soaps. I also like Nourish Organic and Desert Essence.

    These are great back to school ideas! All travel size + all eco friendly. I create travel size eco friendly solid perfumes that would be great for students too. I even offer a sampler box where you can get one and share one with a friend. Would you like me to send you the sampler box so you can review it for future posts about travel size organics?
