This soap is great! Love that it's made locally too. It's not overly drying and doesn't leave a weird feeling on your skin afterwards like other soaps do. They're also so pretty and instagram-worthy if you're into that thing. I will continue to buy these! Worth the price for sure!
The rose/ylang ylang smells like heaven and it will make you want to shower even when you don't need to. The lemon poppy smells and lathers great, but it's a strong exfoliant. I have dry skin so I only use it once a week.
Second time ordering soap from Eco Collective and I’m so impressed. This soap smells amazing while not giving me a headache. It lasts forever! My partner and I both use it and it lasted us three months. 10/10. I now have one for the shower and the sink.
I love these soaps-- I got one for each of our bathroom sinks and they're both really nice. I especially love the smell of the blue clay and patchouli. They're very smooth and suds up very nicely. I will be repurchasing when I run out of soap again.
I always appreciate that Eco Collective stocks local eco-concious brands that I likely wouldn't have heard of otherwise. Thank you for introducing me to Flourish Botanicals!
It’s hard for me to find bars of body soap that don’t leave a residue after I rinse off. This soap smells so good and I love how it exfoliates my skin. Definitely recommend!
I love trying bar soap from many local and small businesses & I love this bar. Beautiful presentation with the flowers on top, just like in the photo. Lathers very well, smells amazing but not too strong on the body afterwards. Been enjoying using it to shave with my ECO new safety razor!
I have this one and then 2 other ones I bought elsewhere. This one is the best one yet. It's bigger and higher quality.... Doesn't feel like it's gonna unravel. I definitely recommend
Easiest way to save small pieces of soap! Quality is as pictured and described!
I've really liked this pouch so far. I didn't know what to do with my small soap pieces because they were too small to use but I also didn't want to waste them. This pouch dries hard if you keep the soap in it after each shower/bath, but softens when wet.
It was a bit of an adjustment going from liquid to bar shampoo but I love the smell and am definitely using less plastic!
my hair usually responds well to any shampoo. it's easy. but this made me SO greasy. my hair always looks wet when I use it. don't recommend
I have had such a hard time finding a natural shampoo that doesn't leave my hair greasy, and this bar (I use the one for straight hair) does the job. This is the best shampoo I have ever used.
I am super pleased with this curly hair shampoo bar. I have used shampoo bars before and I have used multiple regular sham
I have a mess of thick curly hair, and I do not shampoo frequently unless I want to resemble a poodle. I have used this bar sparingly over the past month and it leaves a beautiful shine on my hair, my hair is actually soft instead of wiry and after drying, my halo of frizzies are noticeably softer and tamer. I just ordered the curly hair conditioner to use with this, and I think the results are going to be even more fabulous/define my curls more. Highly recommend!
These granules were very moist, almost a clay-like substance. Given the package is very thin, it was challenging to get out. I had to get some tweezers - I never did get it all out. Then I couldn't pour them into my bottle or even use a funnel because the clumps were too big. Once the water was added, the consistency was OK, but I don't feel like it conditioned my hair very well at all. I really really wanted to love this, but I just didn't.
I purchased a trial size of the citrus scent, but I would not recommend that scent. The scent does not linger, but it does smell "off" while using the shampoo. I mixed the packet with (an unknown amount of) water in a 3 fl. oz. travel bottle (emptied packet into bottle, added water to under 3 fl. oz. (aiming for 2 fl. oz.), shook the bottle). The consistency of the product is not very viscous (more liquid-y) and kind of slippery (similar to the Fresh soy face cleanser). Quite a bit of product must be used (I usually use about the size of a grape, but for this product I needed multiple grapes) to lather the product and get a clean hair feeling. I used it in combination with Olaplex no. 5 conditioner. My hair felt soft, clean and nice after air drying. What I like about this product is that I can prepare shampoo based on my use/demand instead of purchasing a giant bottle that will take me years to go through. ***I may have over diluted the product.
I got the trial size as I was curious and it felt really harsh on my hair. Tried to use all of it but noticed my hair was consistently dry and felt brittle after use so rinsed the rest down the drain.
Not much lather as it’s sulphate free. Left the hair super shiny and clean after wash. Will definitely recommend.
Works really well, doesn’t dry out hair. First “natural” shampoo my daughter (oily hair) really likes and I (dry hair) like it, too. Can’t wait for your store to reopen!
I've been using Eco's shampoo and conditioner together for a few weeks now, and seem to be getting better results than I did with more expensive (and wasteful!) products. My hair is shiny and frizz-free.
My Hair Type: Fine, Medium Density, Very Porous, Dry, Frizzy, Curly, Wavy & Straight.
FIRST- I give 5 stars bc the product is as clean as a product gets. Top Quality. SECOND- because of my hair's relentlessly high needs, I find this product to be a better daily conditioner than deep conditioner. Especially because the consistency isn't super thick- my hair sucks it up quickly and I can't get a thick coating without using a ton of it. HOWEVER- if I left this on for several hours I guarantee it would be very beneficial. LAST- I think this product can be used by anyone needing moisture. Again, it's a great product with great ingredients. It's as honest as it gets.
I’ve tried many conditioners from eco collective and comparable women-operated businesses and although I think I’ll stick with the solid conditioner bar, this mango deep conditioner is something I’ll continue to get to treat my hair. I have really long, waist-length, wiry thick black hair and it needs a lot of conditioner.
My coarse, thick, and dry curly hair (3a-3c) loved this stuff! My hair was starting to get pretty dried out after only using conditioner bars for a couple of months, and using this once totally restored my curls. I used it two wash days in a row and it was definitely a little too much moisture the second time around, so I'll treat this as a true deep conditioner and alternate between using this and my conditioner bars. The mango smell is a great added bonus - smells like real mango and isn't overpowering! 10/10 recommend
I have tried a couple of other bars and this is the best one I have found.
My boyfriend and I both use it and love it. I have wavy blonde hair that is very dry, he has curly brown hair that is thicker, coarser, and has a problem with being oily. Somehow it works perfect for both of us and we fight over the bar. 100% best conditioner I have ever used.
Love the cocoa butter conditioner bar! Switching away from bottled conditioner and this was the first bar I've tried. I have long medium-curly hair that tends to frizz, and this leaves it soft and moisturized, and the curls bouncy. I use it as a CO wash, and it takes a little longer to work into my hair than the bottled stuff, but is overall more convenient to use and will be easier to travel with. Love the minimalist packaging.
I have fine, wavy-to-curly hair. I go back and forth between curly girl and blown out/straightened styles. This conditioner bar is great for both styles. It does not weigh down my hair or curls. It’s also long-lasting I have used 3-4x a week for the past two months and the bar is about half gone. Recommend for anyone looking to reduce plastic/packaging!
It took my hair a couple of washes to get used to it, but now my curls are super hydrated and happy with this conditioner bar. Definitely would recommend for my fellow curly haired friends :)
I loved the idea of this since it's extremely low waste, but it just does not work!
The end product after adding the recommended amount of water is very liquidy and does not do a good job of conditioning my hair. After a shower using this, my hair felt very dry and tangled. I bought all of the 3 different scent options because I thought I'd love them, so how I'm just trying to use them up to be done with them. I've been using this as a leave in conditioner just to use it up which seems to be doing pretty well in that capacity.
As a stand alone it's a definite NO, but as a leave in, it works.
I would not purchase again, I'm sticking with the bars now.
This is exactly what I was looking for! The conditioner powder/paste mix is perfect in every way. Comes in a zero -plastic paper zip bag, fun to make, leaves my hair silky smooth, reasonably priced for the quality. I only wish it’d come in a bulk size or they can restock. So glad I found this. Will repurchase!
This conditioner works really well! I had tried conditioner bars and I just wasn't a fan. This stuff comes out to a great consistency and does a good job. I added my own mix of essential oils to the unscented packet for my own scent. When my current batch is out I will buy the bulk packet to keep using this product with minimal waste!
I love this kit! This is the best razor I’ve ever used and the shave bar is so lovely.
I am so glad I bought this! This was a great investment. I am thrilled at the prospect of never buying a plastic razor again! The razor itself is beautifully made, weighty, and very reasonably priced. The replacement razors are all sharp and the tin arrived in perfect shape. I LOVE that the included shave bar is from Dulse and Rugosa...the scent! Highly recommend the shave kit to anyone and everyone! ✌️
This razor is the best razor I’ve ever used. It’s my first safety razor (instead of like a disposable razor or electric razor), and I love it soo much. It gives such a clean shave, and I only nicked myself a few times on the legs, tbh not too bad for the first time using it! The only thing I would change is the handle, if it had better grip/wasn’t so smooth I think it could make the razor overall better. I 100% recommended this razor though, and it’s a great small step to take in being more eco-friendly :)
This razor worked very well with the shaving soap from Eco Collective; I haven't tried the razor yet with other shaving soaps/creams. The razor left my skin much more smooth and bump-free compared to disposable razors, which was pleasantly surprising. Not sure yet how many times I can shave with the same razor knife before it starts nicking the skin, but I will learn as I go!
I was so excited to pick up this razor from Eco Collective - it's great that they're still offering pick up during COVID. It was a quick & safe handoff & I took my razor home. I was very nervous my first time shaving & went very slowly but it turned out amazing! Didn't cut myself once & my legs were more smooth than I've ever been able to get them with a Venus razor. Since then I've been slowly getting more confident in my shaving abilities, have cut myself twice but it hasn't deterred me. The key, I think, is showering in hot water to relax your hair follicles, using lots of soap or shaving cream & not adding any weight to the razor. I take the pieces apart to let them dry after every use, and so far, no rust. I'm so happy I was able to buy from a local business and continue eliminating plastic from my life.
I was nervous about trying this, but I made it through my first shave without nicking myself and my legs feel SO SMOOTH! Love!
I had been very nervous to try the safety razor. I finally used all the razors I had on hand and decided it was time. It is a bit of an investment, at first. However, it is a high quality that should last you a life time and the blade replacements are so cheap! Before my first use, I watched a couple of YouTube videos on how to use properly and safely. I have found that short strokes with a delicate pressure works perfectly. I did nick my legs during the first use, but like I said there is a learning curve. My advice would be to use our when you have plenty of time to do it carefully. I take my razor apart are each use and rinse thoroughly and store in a dry place. This has proven to keep the razor and blade in top shape for long lasting use. Highly recommend!
The razor works well. The only thing I would change is the handle. I use it in the shower and it sometimes slips out of my hand. It would be great if the handle had some texture to grip onto.
I LOVE this shave bar. This is the second low waste shave soap I've tried (I hated the first brand I used) and I've found my match. It lathers well (I use with a shave brush) and is so soft and gives me a really close comfortable shave. The low waste bar I used before this didn't provide much slip and my skin would get irritated and the shave wouldn't be close. With this bar it's SO smooth and provides slip for the razor its like a night and day difference and my legs feel very soft after. Very glad I tried this shave bar and won't be using anything else :)
I may be one of the strange humans who actually likes shaving my legs, so I've tried a lot of different cream, lotion, soap and foaming alternatives in search for a low waste, natural product. After finding this, my search is over. Razor glides smoothly and foam is adequate and no plastic or packaging waste!! Hooray. Please never stop carrying this item, Eco Collective!
This shaving "soap" bar is excellent! It foams up enough to feel a bit like shaving cream, and it leaves my skin softer than any shaving cream out of a can ever did! Plus container left behind!
I have pretty normal skin and don't suffer from too many breakouts (usually 1-3 pimples around the time of my cycle) but occasionally have hard knots under the skin that are super painful. Since using this facial soap (about 1.5 months at this point) I haven't noticed any negative effects on my skin. I'll happily continue to use this!
When will this be back in stock? I neeeeeeeed it. I am a fresh-faced goddess from using this soap. See that light in the distance? It's me. xo
In the few weeks Ive used this facial soap Ive seen a significant change in my small breakouts and specifically oil-deposits/blackheads.
The lather is so silky and it smells clean but not overly fragrant. This will last me a while even with washing my face 2x a day - I have combo skin type leaning toward dry, for context
This has been great for my husband's skin. He's had problem combination skin his whole life, and this has definitely reduced his breakouts and made his skin tone more even. Love that it is zero waste! We bought the soap stone to go with the soap bar, but the liquid soap dripped off the stone too easily and stained our white bath tub. Our solution (taken from another reviewer) was to take an old mint tin, strum rubber bands in a cross hatch across the lip of the tin, and then rest the soap bar on top of the rubber band. The tin offered a lip to catch any soap drippings, and prevented future stains.
When I wash my face and body with this, it leaves a moisture barrier that keeps my skin from getting dehydrated.
Pros: Feels great on skin, lathers well, smell is very mild, and, as other reviews have mentioned, it really hasn't changed shape at all after nearly a month of use. So for overall quality and price, 5 stars hands down.
Cons: Something in this soap seems to be drying my face out. If you have a healthy moisturizing regiment already, then this will likely be no problem. I just noticed I have had to increase my method of moisturizing a lot after washing my face with this. Still recommend!
Love this face wash. It doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin.
I love this soap! It soaps up really easily, and you don't need much to get a thick lather. Doesn't dry out my skin
This is the face wash my dry skin was looking for. Such a gentle cleanse, pleasantly faint smell, and seems like it will last me a long time as the bar hasn't even changed shape after two weeks of using it. Super excited to keep using this!
A lot of facial soaps (bar and otherwise) can feel like they strip the skin of everything- dirt, bacteria, and oils. With this bar, I feel like it is cleansing without stripping away moisture that I need to replace right away with face lotion and the like. I can't speak to the UV protection, inflammation reduction, or redness reduction that the description holds, but so far have been very satisfied with my purchase- which is great, since this seems like it will last me a long time!
