  1. What's your opinion on the Yardly body wash?

    1. I'm so glad you asked this question! I haven't actually gotten a chance to use it yet, because I'm still using an Olay that I got really cheap w/ECB's a month or so ago, but I DO have an opinion on it! First of all I bought the Lavender & Rosemary and the Mango & Lily scents, I opened both bottles in the store & sniffed -they both passed the sniff test! But then, I read the bottle...what a great product!! Firstly, they are PARABEN FREE -idk if anyone knows about parabens, but I will tell you a little about them...they are chemical preservitaves used in MOST shampoos, conditioners, lotions, deodorants, body washes, etc. They are easily absorbed into the layers of your skin, and studies have linked parabens to breast cancer, birth defects, and other nastys that mainly affect WOMEN & CHILDREN, because parabens mimic estrogen! There is almost no way to totally avoid paraben exposure, but I'm all for any major company that will look at a product & try to eliminate something that might make their consumers sick, especially when eliminating that ingredient might lead to a lower profit for the company, but they do it anyway!! Secondly, it is biodegradeable & the bottle is recycled, not RECYCLEABLE, actually made from recycled material (50% as a matter of fact). So...better for you & better for the environment, and a coupon on top...someone pinch me!!!!
