Affordable Natural Care: Faith in Nature

IMG_1157postIMG_1150post  IMG_1158post IMG_1161post

Faith in Nature is a brand with about 40 years of history with the idea to produce friendly products. Friendly to the environment and to the people that use them.

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.

LaColle Norway sent me a generous package with products to test out and I was doing this in the past months to be able to come with this post and share with you my favourite picks.

I already reviewed two hair products from the brand. I really like their Organic Coconut Shampoo* and Conditioner* and you can see more here. They’re light but the shampoo cleanses my scalp and hair well while the conditioner gives me shine and makes my hair really soft. They’re a very nice pair together and I’d like to try more from the haircare range.

You may have seen the Pomegranate & Rooibos Shower Gel and Foam Bath* in my November favourites. I used it in the mornings after workout because it was very refreshing, I haven’t tried it as a bath gel, so I can’t report on that point. I liked it as a shower gel because of the delicate scent and the nice lather that it creates and I’ll be  visiting my local bio store soon because I’m curious to try some of the other shower gel scents.

The Chamomile & Aloe Vera Roll-on Deodorant* has a very light scent and dries pretty quickly. It’s best if you use it after taking a shower. It’s suitable for both men and women. I was scared that I can get a sticky feel throughout the day as it happens with many roll-on deodorants but so far, I haven’t noticed something like that. You have to know that you won’t feel the scent at all once you apply the product, so if you’re expecting perfume-like smell during the whole day, it won’t happen. For me, this is a very nice natural deodorant and it’s also great that you can use a refill – saves you money and it’s better for the environment.

Although I don’t wear that much make up on a daily basis, I always double cleanse my face in the evening. I actually never use face wipes but I tried the 3-in-1 Facial Wipes* and I was surprised. They are gentle, they remove make up effectively (especially mascara) and they actually feel moisturising on the skin. I definitely won’t switch to face wipes make up removing but I think I might be getting these if I travel in case I’m in a situation in which I can’t properly do my full routine or just use them as the first step of my evening rituals.

These are my favourite picks from Faith in Nature and if you’re looking for a natural and cruelty free care that is also affordable, I’d recommend checking these products out.

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?

Empties #2

Blogging about my garbage again!

Here are just a few items that I’ve used up because I threw many before I realized I could’ve included them in such post…oh, well…

As per usual the majority is hair and body products. I’ve kept only two body wash bottles and they are the Palmolive Milk and Honey and Dove Go Fresh Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena ones. I really liked the Palmolive body wash, it was pretty soft and nourishing. But although I like big bottles of body washes (this one was 500 ml), it wasn’t very convenient in the shower. As to the Dove one, I loved it! I loved the smell, I loved the texture, I think the Go Fresh series is really nice and I actually miss this body wash, I might have to repurchase it soon.

Similar to the body wash topic, I threw all my shampoo containers before writing this post except for one. Excuse me, I will try to be better with it in future. So, the shampoo here is the Herbal Essences Silk ‘n’ Shine (review here) which I’ve used up months ago! I’ve also used up at least 4 more shampoos since then but as mentioned, I can’t include them here.

The conditioner is Norwegian and it’s called Change. I picked it randomly and it wasn’t a bad one but I prefer using masks as conditioner, so I’m not planning on purchasing it again.

I’ve spoken about This Works Really Rich Firming Lotion and Vichy NutriExtra Body Cream  here and here. I really liked them but unfortunately, the first one is discontinued so I can’t repurchase it even if I wanted to and for the moment I don’t need the second one but both are nice body moisturisers.

The last body product is by Clarins and it’s their foot cream. I often forget to hydrate my feet, don’t we all? It’s bad of course, but when I remember to do this step, I loved using the Clarins foot cream.

I also have 3 face products to show you – a lip balm, a daily moisturiser and a clay cleanser.

The lip balm is by Love and Toast in Prickly Pear, it smells amazing but it’s not the best lip balm I’ve tried. I enjoyed using it but I guess I wouldn’t repurchase especially considering the amount of lip balms I have at the moment.

I’m going to miss the Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser (review here). It gives such a deep cleansing and leaves your skin purified and soft. It served me well.

Last but not least is my La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat moisturiser for oily/combination skin. I think it’s a nice one and it’s better if you use it in the warmer months because it gives you light hydration and mattifies your skin. Love their Effaclar products!

That’s it for this time’s Empties! Will try to accumulate more containers and stop throwing them right after using up the products.
