A look into beauty, that doesn't harm our furry friends
I’ve got a 3-in-1 for today’s Sample Sunday, but they all come from one brand: The Seaweed Bath Co. I was first introduced to this brand by a vendor representative at Whole Foods, and after she gave me some info about the line she threw a GENEROUS amount of samples in my hands and sent me off with a smile, knowing I’d be back for more. And I’m here to say her confidence was backed up with trust in the brand and the product, and she is absolutely right- I WANT MORE.
I’ve already touched base on the Citrus Body Cream in last month’s FsRCs video . Right now though we’re gonna focus on the hair care and the body wash. Let’s do this in order of how you’d use them in the shower, shall we? First up, the shampoo and conditioner. I was a little hesitant with the fragrance selection of Eucalyptus and Peppermint, one because I’m more of a citrus gal, and two because I was worried the formula might be too cleansing (usually peppermint or tea tree is great for oily hair). No worries in either department though! The fragrance was awakening, but not overpowering. I also didn’t feel much of a tingle on my head, so the peppermint wasn’t soo strong. There wasn’t a huge amount of lather in the shampoo, but it also wasn’t lacking either. Plus, thanks to the argan oil they’ve formulated in both hair products, my hair just felt completely BALANCED and perfect once I let it air dry. Not too heavy, not too light, it’s just that fine line in the middle we all hope to achieve when you want to just keep your hair “normal”.
After getting the hair squeaky clean, I was eager to see how the body wash would handle. Again, I was slightly hesitant because I am -not- a lavender girl, but man o man, this formula has tempted me to give lavender another try! There are no artificial fragrances in any of their products, just high quality essential oil that make you appreciate real aromatic goodness. The lather was fantastic, and the scent wasn’t overpowering. Once I rinsed off and got out of the shower, my skin never felt parched or stripped of moisture, so I could skip a moisturizer if I felt like it.
The creator of this brand put a lot of love and TLC into all of the products, as he made the line in hopes of helping those who suffer from psoriasis and eczema. I can already tell the condition of my scalp has improved dramatically, as I’ve kind of dealt with dry scalp/flakes more frequently these past few months. Actually, as soon as I switched to another brand’s voluminous shampoo and conditioner, I immediately saw flakes in my hair, yikes! Admittedly so, this brand is a little pricier than average (appx. $13 for a 12 oz. bottle), but everything I’ve tried has been a home-run. You can order from their website directly, or you can go to Whole Foods and see if they have any testers open (look for the Body Cream, so you can get an idea of the fragrances!). Trust me y’all, this one is definitely a keeper!
