As most of you know I have been slowly switching to eco-friendly products across all of my personal products including beauty and hygiene. I’ve been researching natural, eco-friendly products and their brands since personally I like to check the background of the company and what the company represents, here’s a little snippet from their website “We put a little goodness in all of our gorgeous products. Each of our collections is infused with organic and sustainable ingredients sourced from places all over the world. Plus, our sourcing partners help promote fair wage jobs and ethical sourcing for our essential oils and absolutes.”
Packaging- The shampoo and conditioner bar comes in a recyclable cardboard box which is fine with me. I’ll try to reuse it for something and if not I’ll put it in my recycling bin. The packaging displays the information on how to use the bar nicely and includes a little background on the company and what its mission is. It comes sealed, but you can smell the scent through the box.
Size- The size I’ve never used a shampoo bar before, but from the research, I’ve done and after reading the reviews this shampoo bar is quite large compared to competitors and for half the price! It’s about the same size as a bar of body soap, with the only difference being it’s in the shape of a heart. I personally like the shape of the bar since it makes it easy to grab and you’re able to have a nice grip when rubbing it onto your hair.
Scent- The scent is mixed with coconut oil, which is the strongest scent out of all the ingredients listed. The scent can be smelled through the box, and even after the shampoo bar is out of the packaging the box still smells like the product. It’s not the strongest when compared to regular liquid shampoos that come in a bottle, however strong scents are not recommended by health care professionals due to possible causes for skin irritations and allergies. It’s strong enough to smell on yourself and appears subtle to others around you. I love the scent and it lasts enough for my next wash.
Lather- This shampoo bar lathers soooo well, not at all what I had expected. I was a little concerned before using the shampoo bar but with my first use resulting in an amazing lather, my concerns were no longer a problem. The lather compared to all of the other shampoos I’ve used in my life have no comparison. This bar lathers a million times better and it doesn’t even make the shampoo bar smaller.
Texture after- My hair felt thicker and stronger after using the shampoo bar. It felt different compared to using liquid shampoo, it doesn’t feel as soft and silky but I know that’s because of the extra chemicals added to the products.
Recap: In my opinion this shampoo bar is DEFINITELY worth the money, finish the last of your shampoo and run out to grab one of these bars to try out for yourself. I love everything about it from the scent to the feel, lather, and how my hair feels after. The cost might seem a bit high, but it’s the best shampoo and conditioner I’ve ever used and I love it. If you’re looking to try a new product and want to try an eco-friendly product this one should be on your list!
