I truly admire those who use beauty for a charitable purpose. And Eve Echo is doing just that by selling deliciously scented hand soaps and hand sanitizers. Eve Echo is lending 100% of profits to FINCA, which, in turn, will offer low-interest loans to women to help them build businesses that create a path out of poverty. Natalie Portman is the FINCA spokeswoman and Eve Echo hopes to find “Eve Echo Ambassadors” who help get out the word. What a better way to make a difference than giving (or keeping for oneself) such stylish gifts.
I know I am already hooked. The products are cruelty-free, sulfate-free and triclosan-free (which translates into “doesn’t dry out skin”). I am a HUGE fan of the lavender vanilla hand sanitizer. The packaging is sleek and the sanitizer smells appealing, not antiseptic. The vanilla is more spicy and less cloying-sweet. It meets the TSA requirements and will certainly be travelling with me over the holidays and pretty much always.
My favorite hand soap has to be coconut butter, but pomegranate peppermint is feeling festive this time of year. Like I mentioned above, lavender vanilla is right up there at the top. Actually, out of the whole line, the only thing that isn’t my favorite is the grapefruit honey dew hand soap, but I am not much of a melon gal.
Eve Echo’s hand sanitizers retail for $8.00 for .41 fluid ounces (12 ml). Hand sanitizer refills are available in a two-pack for $10.00. The hand soaps retail for $14.00 for 8 fluid ounces (237ml).
