A Few Products in More Eco-Friendly Packaging

januar 26, 2018

Following my last post about beauty packaging I gathered some products packaged in either glass, metal, or paper materials. There is of course still some plastic involved but I just wanted to share some options with you. It's really so very easy to find expensive organic products that meet all my standards and that also have beautiful, eco-friendly packaging so I rather picked more affordable products (well some are still a bit up there). I found them all in one store - Love Lula, which also offers free worldwide shipping. There was also a great discussion about beauty packaging in the Love Lula Natural Beauty Club on Facebook, and that also kinda inspired this post.
1. Trevarno Lavender & Geranium Cleansing Oil. Trevarno is definitely a brand that uses my kind of packaging, mostly glass and aluminium lids, even for bottles. This oil is based on Calendula, Chamomile & Comfrey Olive Oil and I'm asking myself how come I haven't tried this oil yet?! Sounds lovely!

2. Trevarno Organic Handmade Soap Selection. I have these soaps and I love them! You receive 5 different soaps and I'm on my third one, the Rose & Jojoba, and I absolutely love it. Definitely my fave. Just so you know the box that came in also contains some plastic which is unfortunate but at least there's way less plastic than with your standard shower gel. They lather nicely, and are not drying. Definitely recommend.

3. Nizou Exotic Jasmin Scented Candle. Ok I kinda missed the point with this one, since it does come in an unnecessary paper box. It's almost 10 pm as I'm writing this and I clearly have to go to bed. Oh well. I also didn't want to choose a candle from PHB with more eco-friendly packaging because I have one of those candles and it's not that great. This candle does sound lovely though. It's hand poured in the UK, created with pure, natural, biodegradable, soy bean wax. It combines the subtle fragrance of sweet jasmine, ylang ylang and white lilies. Comes in a glass jar and aren't candle jars the best to reuse for something else? All in all, soy or coconut based wax candles are such a better eco-friendly alternative to paraffin based candles.

4. Tabitha James Kraan 4-in-1 Organic Conditioner Golden Citrus. Lovely 4-in-1 product that works as a conditioner, leave-in treatment, nourishing scalp cream and a texturize & curl styling cream. I tried all the products from this brand and I really liked them.

5. PureChimp 100% Natural Super Shampoo Bar. I haven't tried this shampoo bar yet but I'm intrigued. At the moment I have two other shampoo bars which I got on Etsy, where there are loads. I kinda have a love hate relationship with them but they are (kinda) growing on me. Bar soaps are such a wonderful alternative to shampoos and shower gels, but I still have to find the one that really works for my hair.

6. KIKI Health Organic 100% Raw Coconut Oil. Coconut oil is such a staple. You can use it for your hair, face (it can be comedogenic so be careful), body, for hands, in the kitchen. Can't imagine a live without it. Coconut oils almost always come in glass jars which are the easiest to reuse. Here I also have to mention honey, which is in my opinion one of the best skincare ingredients. It works so well for my skin and you can also easily get it in a glass jar.
7. Inner Senses DREAM Body Oil. I haven't tried this oil but I love the Sensual scent! That one is a bit more expensive so I rather picked this Dream body oil. The design isn't the most appealing but they do use lots of organic ingredients and the Sensual smells lovely + it's lightweight. I'm looking forward to trying out more of their products.

8. The Ohm Collection Deo Dorant Powder No Sweat - Blossom. This is not your typical deodorant because it comes in a powder form! I'm very intrigued by it but since I'm allergic to baking soda I don't see myself ever trying it. But I like the packaging and I wish they will come out with more options for sensitive skin.

9. Lyonsleaf Body Butter. LOVE. Such a beautiful body butter. Read my review here. Lyonsleaf is a beautiful brand and I highly recommend their products.

10. Alchemy Oils Grapefruit Hair Remedy. 5 ingredients. Simple yet effective. I will say that I was sceptical about the use of Fractionated Coconut Oil because I prefer extra virgin coconut oil but it pleasantly surprised me and I would buy this product again. Makes my hair soft and smooth and because the Coconut Oil is fractionated, the product isn't heavy but rather beautiful and it washes off quite easily.

11. Herbfarmacy Nail & Cuticle Oil. I've had this oil for quite some time and I still really enjoy using it. It's 100% organic and it does a very good job at moisturizing my cuticles and nails. I only wish I would be more consistent with it. Herbfarmacy is a beautiful brand but I do hope they would just stop using phenoxyethanol in some of their products.

12. OKKO Lip Balm - Organic Rosehip - Unflavoured. I love that this lip balm comes in a paper packaging. So refreshing to see that! Mango, Cocoa, Candelila Wax, not only does it sound nourishing but it's also vegan. Definitely the one to put on my wishlist!

13. PearlBar Planet Loving Bamboo Toothbrush. I haven't tried this particular brand of bamboo toothbrushes but I love the one I have. This is a 100% biodegradable charcoal-infused bamboo toothbrush which you can simply toss into your compost pile. Better option than disposable plastic toothbrushes. I will say that they feel a bit differently to the plastic toothbrushes and not every brand worked for me but do give them a go and see for yourself.
14. The Rose Tree Tahiti Cocoa Lip Butter. After trying out their Cleansing Butter (review here) I'm interested in more of their products. I heard that this Lip Balm is really good, someone described it as pure heaven. If you don't mind applying it with your finger then I say go for it. 

15. RMS Beauty "Un" Cover-Up. I'm such a massive fan of this product! I've been using it for so long now and I still have so much left. It's not the most affordable and it does contain Coconut Oil, which can cause acne, but other than that it's a beaut. It's hydrating and therefore perfect for under the eyes and I also use it to cover redness and spots. If you set it with powder it lasts a long time. It's very lovely and I also love the glass packaging.

16. Balm Balm Chamomile Floral Water Hydrosol. Toners and hydrosols packaged in glass bottles are my jam! I haven't tried this one yet, but I had their Frankincense and Rose Hydrosols and both are nice. Not that hydrating, personally I prefer toners with aloe vera but using them from time to time hydrosols are really lovely.

17. Lyonsleaf Marshmallow Soften and Rejuvenate Facial Oil. With Sunflower, Avocado, Baobab, Borage, Rosehip, Marshmallow, this oil sounds lovely. It's a newer product from Lyonsleaf and if you're looking for a new oil serum then definitely take this one into consideration.

18. Elli Face Serum. Elli is a new-to-me brand, grown and crafted in Africa & 100% organic. Nice! This serum contains Baboab, Marula, Jojoba, Chamomile, Helichrysum. I'm into it. Based on the ingredients it sounds really beautiful.

19. PHB Ethical Beauty Mineral Eyebrow Powder. I ordered this product on a whim and I was so pleasantly surprised by it! It's such a lovely powder - great shade match (I have Ash Blonde), it's not orange, it goes on nicely and stays put all day. And in paper packaging. Highly recommend. Check out my review here.

Hope you liked this post and have a lovely weekend!

With love,

Jana
