Eco*Pretty's Last Post

Eco*Pretty is ending. During a time when everyone and their aunt is blogging and tweeting, I'm going offline. I think this social media trend has two, maybe three, more months before people lose interest.

Ha! No, I've been working as the Chicago sales and education rep for a large organic skincare company. I was recently promoted and given more responsibility that includes frequent travel (and, most exciting, health benefits)! I'm also writing for the company's blog = slight conflict of interest.

Thank you for your readership and comments.  It's been so pleasurable serving and interacting with you throughout these 150 posts.  I've tried to feature the best of the growing crop of gorgeous, natural cosmetics now on the marketbeing mindful, during this recession, to include products that won't empty your wallet.  I hope you've seen great results with anything you've bought as a result of these recommendations.  Good luck in your environmental and beauty endeavors!


Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
Buy organic. Eat local.
Plant trees. Take public transit.
Always stop to smell the flowers.

Awww...I am sad to see this blog ending. I discovered your blog about a month or so ago but enjoyed browsing through all the archive and seeing your recommendation on natural/organic skincare.

Ironically, yours is ending and mine was born a few months ago.


P.S. Congrats on your promotion!!!

Good luck with everything! Eco*Pretty has been one of my favorite natural beauty products blogs. Great reviews and well organized (thank you! it's hard to come across a well-organized review blog).

I hope that you keep the posts here...it's a great resource!

I've read your blog since the beginning, after seeing a review you left on one of my favorite products on Makeup Alley. Reading your posts was a lovely occasional respite in a busy life, which stimulated not just my product-junkie tendencies, but also an awareness of how one can lead a more eco-conscious life. So sad that you won't post any more, but best of luck in all you do!

It figures, I just found your blog today.
Oh Well, I will follow your blog with mine anyway in case you update it from time to time ;)

We eco-folks have to stick together !

I make all natural products because the store-bought stuff is scary - LOL

I'm glad you have good news and that you are doing well.

Organically Yours,
