I’ll be completely honest here. I may not be the best person to be doing a beauty product review. I’ve never been that big into the beauty world. Although I love smelly-good lotions and various new makeup products I have no idea how to use most of it. I just play around until I come up with something I like. I am about as far as you can get from an expert, though.
This review is purely that of a mom who picked up a product she liked. I am not being paid for this review by the company, nor do I have anything to gain from this review. I just really enjoy this company’s products!
I have been a fan of natural beauty products for a while but strayed away from the more expensive “all organic” natural beauty trend for a while because well, momlife is tough and I really just didn’t have the extra energy to expend on being extra.
It’s All in the Packaging
The first thing that drew me to this brand is the lovely packaging. Not only is it simple but it’s effective in getting across the “natural” aspect. The flowers on the label are raised so that you can feel them as you hold it in your hand. I don’t know why, but that adds bonus points for me. I love labels with a tactile aspect to them.
The label also contains important information such as the company’s commitment to having a low carbon footprint, providing a completely vegan product, and much more. Upon reading it I was even happier with my choice of beauty products!
The Lavender Collection
There are multiple collections available including coconut oil and ylang-ylang, shea butter and sandalwood, and even murumuru butter and rose. I chose to try the argan oil and lavender version because I am a big fan of an evening shower with lavender. I used a different brand body wash with lavender a while back, but found it to be quite overpowering. This brand, however, has a lovely light and fresh scent.
Benefits of Lavender
Lavender oil can be used to treat skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, wrinkles, or even inflammatory conditions brought on by an autoimmune disease or other conditions.
Lavender is a great herb to use in detoxification of the skin due to its antioxidant properties.
Some use lavender to heal things such as burns or insect bites because of the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties of the herb.
Lavender can make a great toner to help with tightening the skin and boosting facial circulation.
When it comes to the hair, lavender can be useful in controlling hair loss, treating conditions such as alopecia, and even controlling dandruff by helping treat dry scalp conditions.
Many use lavender to help with stress and insomnia because of the relaxing qualities of its aroma.
Benefits of Argan Oil
Argan oil is a rare oil containing both oleic and linoleic fatty acids. These acids are both helpful in smoothing the hair and making it easier to manage and style.
Argan oil has long been used to treat frizzy hair and split ends. It is also well known for giving hair a lustrous shine.
The antioxidants in Argan oil can help it to heal and protect the hair as well.
A Review of Love Beauty and Planet
Overall, I am so happy that I picked up this product. It isn’t as expensive as other natural options but still has all of the great aspects that I like about these kinds of products. I paid about $7.99 per bottle which I think is completely affordable without reaching the “feeling guilty about it” limit.
I loved the smell of the lavender and can’t wait to try other brands. I’m really looking forward to trying the sandalwood or the murumuru butter & rose. I had a rosary that I picked up at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris that started a long-time love affair with anything rose scented. It’s definitely one of my favorite smells!
The hair products have a good lather, which is something that I have found other natural products can lack. I love the idea of helping the planet but I need a product that will give me a good lather and leave my hair feeling clean. This one doesn’t disappoint! The body wash was just as good when it comes to bubble level.
I have had a noticeable change in the health and feel of my hair since using this shampoo and conditioner. It looks better, feels better, and even smells better! I rarely find a product that I notice such a change as I did this one.
Overall, this is definitely a product that I recommend for any moms looking to pick up a nice quality natural beauty product without breaking the bank. I’m quite happy that I decided to give this company a try!
If you pick up any of the other scents be sure to leave me a comment and let me know your favorites so I can check those out as well!
