#ExpoWest Beauty Finds and Non-Food Products!

Posted by on April 10, 2012

To think #ExpoWest happened over a month ago now, and I’m still raving about the awesome products I found there.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my weekly coverage of the Expo, and found some new products you can’t wait to try.

Just in case you’ve missed any of my coverage, check back on these stories:

Favorite Beverages

Gluten Free Products

My Top 15

But now I’m saving one of my favorite categories for last.  The Beauty products and fun finds throughout the Expo.

1) Built NY Wine Totes

Perhaps you saw my giveaway, perhaps not, but these WINE TOTES are a blast, and so much fun to have.  One that you carry over your shoulder to the ones that you hold by hand.  They’re great to have around.

2) Island Bamboo

This company is awesome.  Having one of the widest selection of Hue Bamboo kitchen products available.  I was literally drooling in their booth as I looked throughout the bamboo products.  Has anyone ever told you how much of a sucker I am for bamboo cutting boards?

3) Okabashi 

This year I’ve had my eyes on flip-flops, and I’m on a mission to try out some new companies so when I stumbled upon Okabashi, I was enamoured.  Their sandals made from recyclable products.  How awesome is that?

4) SnapSac

I love reusable bags, and now that Los Angeles is beginning to ban plastic bags throughout some of their surrounding cities I’ve been on the lookout for new bags.  What do I love about SnapSac’s bags?  The fact that they’re HUGE.  You can fit a lot into them, and it’s still comfy to wear around your shoulders.  They fold up incredibly easy too making it super convenient.

5) Back to the Roots

When I ran across this “Grow your own Mushroom” garden company I couldn’t take my eyes off the product.  I want to try it out! I’ve heard of growing your own gardens from tomatoes to herbs to vegetables, but never thought of mushrooms.  My SO is a huge fan of mushrooms.

6) LifeFactory

These reusable glass bottles that were covered in an awesome silicone sleeve which keeps your glass bottle protected at all times.  They also make baby bottles.


7) Sibu Beauty Products

These beauty products are amazing.  Made from sea buckhorn oils.  These beauty products truly repair and protect your skin.  I was given samples, and the difference it’s made to my skin has been felt and noticed.  This company is also truly amazing, and their passion shines through in how they market, and connect with others.

8) Grahams natural Alternatives

This company was founded based around their son, who as an infant, had major eczema.  They worked hard to come up with a product that would work to alleviate the eczema, and they’ve had raving success.  If you know someone with eczema or other skin ailments, recommend this product to them.  They’ve especially designed it for babies and children.

9) SparkleHearts

These two ladies came together on behalf of their daughters who was wondering why there were so little natural beauty products made from natural ingredients.  These two ladies got to work and have come out with body lotions and washes designed specifically for girls.  The fun pink design of their products make them fun, and the SMELL is to die for.  Keep an eye out for a giveaway coming soon 😉

10) Sum Bo Shine

What caught my eye about Sum Bo Shine where their organize fingerpaints that were made from organic fruits and vegetables.  How fun for a small child, and finger paints that aren’t toxic for children.  Truly a win-win!

What GREAT GREAT products, huh?  #ExpoWest was a ton of fun, and it opened my eye to how fun a healthy and natural lifestyle can be, and I’ve attached myself to some new favorite products because of it!

    The education and information at a conference are priceless. I have product envy, on the east coast of Canada we are somewhat limited but I am sure that they ship to Canada, thanks for sharing these great finds.

    Wow, what a great list of products . . . I will be checking out several of them! I love the life factory water bottles, they are a great alternative to the aluminum taste that the non-glass bottles leave behind. What’s next ~ I think I’ll try the fingerpaints, my kids will love those.
