Summer in the Winter: Faith in Nature Coconut Haircare

IMG_1199post

I’ve seen Faith in Nature in my local bio store but didn’t know much about the brand.

When I was sent a generous package by their Norwegian representatives LaColle with some of their products to try, I got really excited. I’ve been testing them out for more than a month and soon I’ll be writing a post on my favourite items but at the moment I’m in love with their Coconut shampoo and conditioner.

Faith in Nature doesn’t use any synthetic fragrances or colouring, SLS, SLES and parabens. There are no animal ingredients and no ingredients are tested on animals.

Now to the Natural Organic Coconut Shampoo* which as you can tell contains organic coconut. I have to say that it smells of real coconuts, it’s not like the usual artificial coconut scent added to beauty products. It’s really nice, feels like you’re on a summer holiday. The product has pearly and a little bit runny consistency. It’s pretty foamy, you need the tiniest amount of product. The shampoo is also very gentle but cleanses your hair and scalp very good and leaves my hair almost squeaky clean, shiny and soft. By soft, I mean baby soft hair that has never had any heavy products on it or experienced blow dry, air conditioner or winter air.

The Coconut Conditioner* has more watery consistency, it’s a light conditioner but it does nourish your hair and in combination with the shampoo, the results are honestly better than I expected.
The hair is shiny and manageable, smells lovely and if you have sensitive scalp, these are a shampoo and conditioner to try.

Both of these products have exceeded my expectations and I would love to try more of the haircare range.

Have you tried any Faith in Nature‘s products?

Haul: Burt’s Bees 30th Birthday!

IMG_0904post IMG_0906post

 

Last month Burt’s Bees celebrated their 30th birthday! I’m sure everybody knows Burt’s Bees and especially their lip balms but basically it’s a skincare brand that is not testing on animals, their products are natural and just wonderful.

Usually, when you have a birthday, you receive presents but Burt’s Bees Norway decided to give presents to the others! They organised an Instagram contest and I was one of the lucky winners. The prize was a box filled with their classics.

I was very excited because I genuinely love the brand, I’ve tried many of their products but there are also some items that I’ll be trying for the first time. I have to say that the box was so cute and wrapped with care, there was a hand-written personal message, candies, a balloon and it was simply amazing. A real birthday present!

Now to the products inside the box.
There is the well-know Beeswax Lip Balm and I’m pretty sure I have at least 5 in the different scents and formulas, this one here is the original one. Pocket-friendly, perfect for all year round but especially in the winter, one of my all-time favourite lip balms.

I’m pretty curious about the Res-Q Ointment because it’s a remedy for bumps, bruises, insect bites and all kinds of minor injuries. I’ve heard a lot about it but never tried it.

I found two hand products in the box – the Hand Salve and the Almond and Milk Hand Cream.

I’ve been using the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream for a very long time and I’ve actually included it in my first ever post on this blog, that’s how much I love it.

Last but not least is the Coconut Foot Cream which I haven’t tried before and sure I’ll get good use of it in the colder months.

Thank you for the lovely prize Burt’s Bees Norway!
