Eco-Armour Has More To Offer For 2014


The Makeup Examiner introduced readers to the organic, eco-friendly beauty brand Eco-Amour in July 2013. If you missed it, you can check out the article about Eco-Armour’s staple products -- “Eco-Armour Organic Beauty Review”. Founded by Robert and Zoe Benzinger in 2011, with one product, Eco-Armour Shaving Foam, this intriguing and dynamic couple expanded the brand’s offering with Botanical Insect Repellent and Moisturizer (an absolute must-have for summer), and recently introduced three new, amazing products!


First up for review is a beauty bargain at its absolute best, Eco-Armour Mango Lip Butter ($5). Yes you read the price correctly. Mango Lip Butter is a 100% botanical lip balm with great cushion that moisturizes the driest lips, penetrates quickly with no sticky feel and provides SPF15. Eco-Armour Mango Lip Butter contains non-GMO soybean oil, cocoa and shea butter with almond and apricot oils, has a yummy light citrus flavor and is the best lip balm that The Makeup Examiner has come across in a very long time.


Next up is Eco-Armour Indoor calming spray (4oz $12.50), which is designed to calm our busy minds and that it does indeed. As with other Eco-Armour products, Indoor is a multi-purpose beauty spray. It can be spritzed on pulse points for an instant mental chill, on your linens to promote a restful night’s sleep, or even in your office when your boss is being … uh … cranky. The blend of witch hazel distillate with organic castile soap and aloe vera gives the product both cleansing and healing properties. And a blend of lavender, bergamot, vanilla and tea tree essential oils create the relaxing scent.


Last but not least, because TME saved her favorite for last, is Eco-Armour Advanced Botanical Serum (0.5 oz $79), which again is a multi-purpose product that can be used on everything from those annoying fine lines to dry cuticles and dry skin to boo-boos. There are actually 18 different skin healing and beautifying benefits listed on the brand’s website! Advanced Botanical Serum contains a natural SPF15, mango butter, grapeseed oil, hempseed oil, hazelnut oil, and lots of other skin-loving ingredients. TME was thrilled that she was able to use the serum on everything, from dry cracked heels to dark under eye circles, with amazing results. Eco-Armour Advanced Botanical Serum is a must-have for winter skincare and is currently on special for $39!

The last ingredient listed on Eco-Armour products is love. Normally, The Makeup Examiner is not a sappy person, but after several conversations with Eco-Armour Co-founders Robert and Zoe Benzinger, TME can guarantee that these amazing people definitely add love into their products. If you’re seeking beauty products that are organic, vegan and eco-friendly plus are multi-purpose, The Makeup Examiner highly recommends checking out Eco-Armour. Eco-Armour is a member of 1% for the Planet and their products can be found on the Eco-Armour website.

Eco-Armour organic beauty review



Hello lovelies! The Makeup Examiner hopes that everyone enjoyed the Fourth of July festivities and that you’re enjoying a long holiday weekend. Before TME wanders off to enjoy more of our Independence Day celebrations, she wanted to share with her readers the trifecta treasure of Eco-Armour. As The Makeup Examiner has previously written, she’s always on the hunt for products that hit the beauty product trifecta of organic, cruelty-free and eco-friendly. Often found are products that hit one-of-three. Imagine her delight when she found two quadruple-duty products that hit the beauty trifecta and are wallet-friendly. Score!

Eco-Amour was found by Robert and Zoe Benzinger in 2011, and their back story is rather interesting so check in with The Makeup Examiner to read an interview about this dynamic couple. Now … to the products! Eco-Armour Shaving Foam was a featured product in Yuzen Box Father’s Day Edition and has been a staple in spas on the East Coast. The Makeup Examiner was sent the Eco-Armour Triple Pack Shaving Foam (5oz each $19 set of 3 $48) and Botanical Insect Repellent and Moisturizer (4oz $12.50). The Eco-Armour Triple Pack Shaving Foam contains each of Eco-Armour’s three scent formulations of shaving foam, which are Bergamot + Pink Grapefruit; Mint + Eucalyptus; Pomegranate + Mango. Each scent is formulated for more than just a desire for a particular scent. Bergamot + Pink Grapefruit is soothing and gentle for sensitive skin, Mint + Eucalyptus is invigorating and cleansing for problem skin, and Pomegranate + Mango is calming and moisturizing for dry skin. Do they give a great shave? Yes. And they are not a “women’s-only” product.

Eco-Armour’s Shaving Foam scents are appealing to both men and women. The light foam formula is gentle enough for the bikini area, yet effective for men. The foams are formulated to extend the life of a blade, can be used as body wash and The Makeup Examiner has been using the Bergamot + Pink Grapefruit as a face wash for several weeks with wonderful results. With four separate uses, Eco-Amour’s Shaving Foam should be called wonder foam! Extending the life of your razor and multi-use, makes this product both eco and wallet-friendly.


Moving onto Eco-Armour Botanical Insect Repellent and Moisturizer. The Makeup Examiner put this to the test, on the Fourth, when festivities were outdoors and the bugs were abundant. Many repellents have an overwhelming scent; this is not the case with Eco-Armour’s Botanical Insect Repellent and Moisturizer. The light lemony scent is lovely and the product absolutely keeps the bugs away … but not the boyfriend! It is safe for adults and kids, and is biodegradable (as is the shaving foam). The Botanical Insect Repellent and Moisturizer can be used as just a moisturizer, which is why The Makeup Examiner pointed out the light scent. It is also effect as an after-sun care product.

If you’re seeking products that are organic, vegan and eco-friendly plus are multi-purpose, The Makeup Examiner highly recommends checking out Eco-Armour. Eco-Armour is a member of 1% for the Planet and their products can be found on the Eco-Armour website

Insider Beauty News: Eco-Armour will be launching an after-shave serum and a lavender mist in Fall 2013.
