Got your attention right?
Well, let’s first have a little French lesson:
We are highlighting definition 1 in this here post
So what are we on about? Well, we thought it a good idea to share some feedback on the products that we are currently using at home. We are so often stunned by the effectiveness of natural and organic products that we thought it would be great to share some first hand feedback on some of our ranges – just to give you some added information to use during your next shopping trip…
Without further ado, let’s start in the kitchen:
Working from left to right, we found the following hiding under the kitchen sink:
Better Earth Cleaning Spray:
For use on kitchen counters, walls, stove tops and glass surfaces, not only does this product smell divine, it does the job perfectly (and we are qualified to say this as we have clever dogs that try to open our glass sliding door from the outside, every day! Needless to say, the door gets cleaned every afternoon – and it sparkles!). Have we mentioned that it lasts just about forever?
Better Earth Tile and Floor Cleaner:
As effective as traditional tile cleaners (but much better smelling due to the lack of harsh chemicals), this floor cleaner leaves our tiles sparkling and our home smelling all citrusy.. Always remember to shake well before use though, as natural ingredients tend to separate. Other than that, it is a breeze to use.
Earthsap Dishwashing Liquid:
Cost effective and easy to use, Earthsap’s Dishwashing Liquid is a must in all homes. We found this product to be a bit watery, but once you get your mind around the “shake before use” principle, it does a fantastic job. A lot of our customers use it by pouring directly onto sponge before washing, but we have found that it works just as well when added to hot water and shaking it up to foam before washing.
Better Earth Bathroom and Toilet Cleaner:
Our customers love this product due to the smell and effectiveness! Our domestic is sold on it, and we have clean, hygenic bathroom and toilet surfaces. It seems this one sells itself!
Better Earth Laundry Liquid:
If you are not using a Biowash Ball (which is a great way to save money while cleaning close effectively), then this is the product for you. We’ve found that even after clothes come out of the dryer it still retains the great smell left behind by this product. And it saves you money too as it has a built in softener, so no need to add anything but the Laundry Liquid. An added tip is that we’ve found that we need a lot less per wash than what is stated on the bottle, so it last very long.
On to a few items found in the bathroom (form left to right, back to front):
Ecoco Face and Body Wash:
First tip: As we use this in the shower, we changed the top of our conditioner bottle with the top of this bottle – makes for easier flow This Avo and Lime wash smells so fresh, and as you use very little for each wash it lasts forever. Cleans and foams nicely so it leaves you feeling perfectly polished…
Earthsap Pomegranate Conditioner:
Our customers keep raving about the Earthsap hair products, so we thought “right, lets give the conditioner for dry hair a bash!” (hence the 2 ranges of conditioner found in the shower stall).
This works a charm! No really, having naturally curly hair, this conditioner gives the most perfectly defined curls. I dare say I have never had such frizz free curls.. Just beautiful!
When we got this range we tried it as it gets great reviews for treatment of dry and itchy scalp. In light of that, it does the job perfectly, but we found the conditioner to be a bit watery. The great thing is that we now mix the Earthsap Pomegranate with this product, and whala! No more itchy scalp, and great frizz free curls…
Again, a very good product for itchy scalp. As it is in its very simple, organic form, it doesnt foam a lot. But as we all know, the foam in traditional hair and body products are caused by chemicals added specifically for this affect. Needless to say, a healthier, more risk free product (like this one) takes some getting used to. But then, it is all worth it!
Naturals Beauty Sensual Body Oil:
This is a great moisturising body oil (especially for dry winter skin). It’s got a strong rosy smell – which is just yummy – and it leaves your skin soft and nourished. Use it any which way you like. It is a sensual body oil after all
Earthsap Rosemary and Lavender Roll on:
Never in this lifetime would we have thought that a natural, chemical free roll on would work so well! It really leaves your underarms smelling fresh. And best of all, it lasts! Try it – we bet you’d be converted.
Oh Lief Insect Balm:
Oh Lief has some great baby and body products – all olive oil based and therefore naturally moisturising. But this one seems to make its appearance all around our house! With Citronella and Lemongrass, this insect balm works 100%, and smells nice. And we’re qualified to confirm this as we live on a wetland and have no mosquito bites to sow for it! This is a winner, and safe for kids 6 months and over too!
Naturals Beauty Sugar Scrub:
This white sugar scrub will last you very, very long. It scrubs and buffs away old skin nicely, leaves your skin moisturised and soft instead of dry, and smells subtly lovely. We sometimes wonder if we even need to put a cream on after our scrub as this one products seems to do the trick all by itself..
We hope this little “share-a-thon” has been useful, and that the personal feedback can be used to inform future purchases. And dont hesitate to leave a comment or post a review of any of these or other great products that you might have used – shared feedback is after all so useful to all
Off to go do some “au naturel” cleaning now (and no, only the cleaning material will be “au naturel” – giggle, giggle)
