Natural Parenting Products, Reviews and Giveaways

Congratulations to all of our August giveaway winners!

For the NatureBox Healthy Snacks giveaway:




NatureBox offers healthy, minimally processed snack foods, delivered to your door at the beginning of every month. A great way to start eating healthier, with little effort. I received a box of snacks to review and, upon first opening, I loved the packaging. Brown box, great design, delicious snacks.

NatureBox is sort of like a CSA or produce basket club. Once a month a box is delivered right to your door with a variety of great snack food, packaged in resealable ziploc type bags. Nutritionists put the snacks together, and ship them off to you. If you are going to be out of town you can skip a month, or have them send your box to a friend.

NatureBox snacks contain no high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, artificial sweeteners, partially hydorgenated oils, artificial flavors or colors. I would like to see them take it one step further and go organic or Non-GMO certified.

You can purchase your own NatureBox subscription at NatureBox. $19.95 per month, no shipping charges.

And just for Natural Parents Network and Job Description: Mommy readers, NatureBox is giving a 25% discount off your first month subscription. Enter code CINNAMON during the ordering process.

For the Jessicurl Haircare Light & Luminous Collection giveaway:

Jessicurl giveaway — Light and Luminous Trial Collection for curly and wavy hair


This haircare collection for finer curls and waves includes six safe and gentle products perfect for wavy and curl hair on adults or little ones! The zippered travel pouch includes a step-by-step instructional insert with tons of tips and techniques to help you get fabulous curl enhancement and definition.

Natural ingredients include nourishing aloe vera, coconut oil, jojoba oil, cocoa butter, avocado oil, flax seeds, shea butter, and an herbal “hair tea.” Some of the non-natural ingredients are humectants, emollients, and a tiny amount of preservatives.

What’s critical is what ingredients they don’t have: silicones that coat strands and are hard to wash out, harsh cleansing agents, drying alcohols, and the like. All the ingredients are specially chosen to nourish and strengthen hair, protect natural oils, and make curls and waves look their best with every use.

The trial sizes come unscented, and you can choose unscented for the full-size products as well. Otherwise, Jessicurl offers two fragrances, and scent samples are included in the trial: Citrus Lavender and Island Fantasy.
