Earth Day & Soap Bars

april 22, 2019

Hey! It's Earth Day today! Earlier today I published a post on my Instagram (see here) talking about plastic waste and waste in general, and then showing some of the soap bars I have so why not do it here as well? I love solid soaps so much and I use them on my face, body and hair. Soap bars are so great & easy to use, and more importantly, they aren't packaged in plastic bottles which are very rarely recycled. Vast majority of any plastic packaging is accumulating in landfills, or very slowly disintegrating in nature as litter. One thing that we can all do is to try and do better. I love the new Beauty Heroes message Live Lighter. Love More, so let's live lighter, more zero-waste lifestyle and give Earth some much needed relief. As I just mentioned Beauty Heroes let me quickly share with you their newest limited edition discovery which is very exciting and was curated especially for Earth Day - the Living Lighter LE Discovery*. "Living Lighter is the ultimate luxury. Our first-ever Living Lighter Discovery is a sustainable supplies kit to elevate your everyday life. Ordinary products like dental floss, toothpaste and deodorant, are reimagined in elegant sustainable, reusable and biodegradable packaging, featuring natural ingredients that perform." Check it out here. Now back to my soaps.
Earth Day Soap Bars Natural, organic, palm oil free, vegan. Rachel's Plan Bee, Ayuna Less is Beauty, Trevarno Skincare, Odylique, Natural Wisdom Spa. LoveLula, Beauty Heroes
The yellow soap on the top right is Carrot & Calendula Soap* by Rachel's Plan Bee, made with Olive, Babassu, Carrot and Kokum. This soap was specially formulated for sensitive skin and I find it really non-drying and lovely to use. It doesn't lather a whole lot but the lather that provides is very creamy. It's unscented aka there are no essential oils in this soap. It's currently out of stock but you can get Rachel's Plan Bee Carrot & Calendula Soap here.

The one below it, the green one is the Natural Wisdom Spa Solid Shampoo & Body Wash Bar Grapefruit & Lemongrass which is hands down my favourite shampoo (bar)! It's bloody amazing and I highly recommend it. If you’ve ever tried a solid shampoo bar and thought naah this is not for me, then trust me, you haven't tried this one. It's really something else and it cannot be compared to any other solid shampoo bar. Plus it lathers like crazy! You can read my review here. You can get Natural Wisdom Spa Solid Shampoo & Body Wash Bar on their website here or on Etsy here.

Next to it is the Facial Cleansing Bar* by Rachel's Plan Bee and I love this one too. It's so great and I love that it contains Moroccan Lava Clay, which is great for my combination skin. It's infused with Aloe, Pumpkin, and also contains Babassu, Mango and Kokum butters. It's gentle yet effective, non-drying (well it dries out my skin only a little) and just really lovely to use. Plus it's also massive so it will last ages! Really impressed with it. You can get Rachel's Plan Bee Facial Cleansing Bar here. In Europe available at So Natural Beauty here.

Next to it is Natural Wisdom Spa Conditioner & Shaving Cream Grapefruit & Lemongrass. I'm only using it as a hair conditioner and yes, I like it. You can get Natural Wisdom Spa Conditioner & Shaving Cream Grapefruit & Lemongrass here or on Etsy here.

The cute little bar in the middle is one of my faves, Ayuna Nourishing Artisan Soap* (review). Crafted with Borage, Olive, and Coconut Oil, this luxurious face soap leaves all skin types feeling lavishly softened and purified. Botanical activated Carbon cleanses the skin of impurities, excess sebum, and environmental pollutants, giving skin a beautifully deep detoxified appearance. An amazing face cleanser. Love. You can get Ayuna Nourishing Artisan Soap here, at Beauty Heroes here or at The Green Jungle Beauty Shop here (affiliate code Jana saves 10%).

The one next to it, the rather funky looking one is also from Ayuna. This is their newer product, the Spirulite Body Mask & Wash*. The thing you see in it is natural Luffa fiber which provides skin exfoliation. The bar also contains Calendula and Spirulina extracts to address cellulite and dryness. Spirulite lathers really well, smells great and I really like using it. You can get Ayuna Spriulite Body Mask & Wash here, at Beauty Heroes here or at The Green Jungle Beauty Shop here (affiliate code Jana saves 10%).

Next to it is one of Trevarno's soaps but I'm not completely sure which scent this is. I got it in their Soap Selection Box of five soaps and I enjoyed all of them. I got the box at LoveLula but it looks like Trevarno products are no longer available there so you can get them straight from Trevarno's website here.

The last one is from Odylique, the Lavender Cleansing Bar*. Mild and beautiful. You can get Odylique Lavender Cleansing Bar here.

All these soaps are vegan and palm oil free which is yet another thing I try to avoid as much as I can and you know what, it's not even hard when you get used to it.

Do you love soap bars too?

Happy Earth Day & have a great start of the new week!

Lots of love,

Jana xx
