I really love the handle of the toothbrush. It feels very stable in my hand. The bristles are nice and soft, but they don't fall apart in my mouth. It also gets my teeth really clean.
Toothbrush looks great and the handle feels good, however the bristles are pretty hard! I’d say they are more firm than my old plastic toothbrush which was labeled “medium”. Unfortunately, this brush does hurt my gums quite a bit. Also, I wish there was a different color option to avoid confusion with other members of the household. My husband’s has a charming piece of blue painters tape on his.
Everything I need in a toothbrush. I wish the bristles could be compostable, but it's still great to have a fully compostable bamboo handle. It feels nice in my hand, and I think that these toothbrushes actually last longer than "regular" plastic ones (at least, I haven't noticed the bristles starting to wear down yet like a plastic toothbrush's bristles would by this time. When do you REALLY need to replace a bamboo toothbrush, anyway?)
I've tired other bamboo toothbrushes but these are my favorite as of right now. The bristles stay in place, they are sturdy but not too hard that they hurt. I've noticed my teeth feeling extra clean. The handle is smooth and I'm not afraid of it splintering. Plus they are super affordable.
I wasn't sure how I would like a bamboo toothbrush, but I've been using it for a couple weeks and I love it! Won't be going back to plastics.
Love ‘em. Fun patterns. Great gifts. Thanks!
I use these all the time instead of sponges, rags, or paper towels for wiping counters and surfaces. They don't smell, they stay sturdy, and they can be cleaned and sanitized to extend their life even further.
I love these for mopping up spills, drying dishes, and cleaning countertops. They seem much more sanitary than dish/cleaning rags and don't carry a musty smell.
Been using the stone for about a week and I've been enjoying it. I still sweat, but I am considerable less stinky with the stone. It's nice to have a deo that is low-waste and doesn't stain my clothes. Like others have mentioned, it's best to use the stone right out of the shower. If I forget and dry my pits I'll spritz them with a little rosewater or witch hazel to apply it. Appreciate the super fast shipping too.
So a few months ago I stopped using antiperspirant cold turkey and started using this. At first it didn't work. I gave it probably three weeks and smelled pretty bad. I tried a couple other natural deodorants afterward and my body odor only seemed to get worse. Finally I decided to give this stone another try and now it works so amazingly well! I think my body just needed extra time to "detox," whatever that means, and was probably working from the get go, I just smelled extra bad during that three week time frame!
I quit antiperspirants because they made my armpits super itchy, and so far I've had absolutely no irritation with this product! I apply it to wet armpits straight out of the shower so I don't need to run the stone under water. Can't recommend this product enough!
I get the hype. My underarm skin peels with just about every single commercial deodorant I've tried. This stone is amazing and the peeling hasn't happened once. I apply it right after a shower, and it keeps me dry for a large portion of the day. I do have to touch up with Tom's sometimes, but not as much as I was expecting to. Great little stone!
I didn’t want to write a review till I had used it for a bit. It’s been several months now and I can say it works and I like it! I have VERY dry and sensitive skin in the area where my under arm is and a long my upper rib area. This hasn’t irritated it or anything! I enjoy it! Recommend(:
This works amazingly well. After using natural deodorant for about two years I sometimes feel like I need to switch products to maintain efficacy. This worked great right from the first use. Glad I found it to add to my arsenal.
It also looks really pretty in my bathroom.
This is my second time purchasing this toothpaste, I love it! I had tried Lush tooth tabs, Toms toothpaste, and tooth powder. The lush products and tooth powder made my teeth sensitive. My dental hygienist commented that charcoal tooth powder can change the pH in your mouth and harm your teeth. The Toms toothpaste I wasn’t a fan of the taste, and I couldn’t locate a Toms recycling program near me. The David’s toothpaste is AWESOME. No sensitivity, the consistency is like normal toothpaste, and the peppermint is very pleasant and not an “earthy tasting” peppermint. My only comment is that when you are done with the toothpaste, it’s a little tricky to cut the packaging apart to clean it before recycling. The edges are sharp and the key makes the tube so flat that you can’t easily cut the side to clean the inside out. I’m happy to do it to reduce my waste, but something to be mindful of. So happy to discover this toothpaste!
I love the rolling key to make sure you get as much toothpaste out of the tube as possible. I also love that the metal tube is recyclable, although the plastic cap is not (in my town) due to its small size. The flavor is not a minty as a traditional Crest or Colgate toothpaste, but still refreshing and probably preferable for those of you who are not fans of mint. I am not sure if it is dentist-recommended - I plan to bring it up with my dentist next time I go in and make sure I am making a healthy choice as well as en environmentally conscious one! The price is admittedly pretty high for a tube of toothpaste, although hopefully it will last a long time, especially with the rolling key. I may post an update to this review with information on how long one tube lasts (brushing 2x a day) and what my dentist says about this product. Be well!
I love this toothpaste! It has a fresh taste and great consistency, and the tube key is such a plus to use all the product. One of my favorite swaps to date.
I can use them for everything in the kitchen. I love that I can ring them out and rinse them off in the sink if I need to!
So cute and work great! They wash very well too.
These are great! Better quality then expected. I was able to wrap them around my current paper towel holder and it works great. Will be ordering more colors soon.
I received my Lemon Unpaper towels and I love them! They’re so soft and cheerful, plus I’ll be saving money by not purchasing the paper ones. The customer service department is very responsive and kind to work with.
I can’t recommend these enough. I got two sets of the lemon patterned towels and love how they brighten the room. I use them for every meal and for cleaning surfaces, and then toss them with my laundry to clean them. So far, I’ve found that stains come out effortlessly. These are easily one of my favorite purchases of 2020!
For the past couple years I had been using a microfiber bamboo towel with eye makeup remover (Neutragena oil-free eye makeup remover) to remove makeup. This method worked for me, but I could tell that it was rough on the delicate skin around my eyes. I decided to switch to these reusable cotton facial rounds because I wanted to take better care of my skin and prevent fine lines/signs of aging. Another con of the towel method was higher product absorbency/loss into the towel.
I purchased the white version and they are exactly as pictured, but what you cannot see is that they are so so so soft! They feel very gentle on my eye area and used in combination with my eye makeup remover all of my makeup comes off perfectly onto the cotton round. I also use less makeup remover which is an added bonus.
I love how soft and beautiful they are. They wash easily, using a mesh bag. Highly recommend for anyone looking to remove single-uses from their life.
I'm really excited to use these reusable face wipes. I love the wooden container for them! I have a small mesh bag that I put the used ones in for laundry. I was disappointed that the clothes were white and not colorful like the picture but it just means I will have to order more!!
Facial rounds are really soft and strong, much better than disposables. Happy to be making another step towards zero waste!
This is one of the easiest zero-waste swaps you can make. I love them and use them everyday to remove makeup from under my eyes or apply toner. They’re super soft and can be used multiple times before washing. They also get softer after you wash them a few times! Liked them so much I bough then as Christmas gifts for friends.
You won’t be disappointed!!
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!
I recently purchased the shampoo bar and have used it 4 times. Unfortunately it makes my hair feel really greasy and dull so I don’t like it:( maybe my husband will like it, thanks anyway 😊
Recently re-purchased the Lovely Rita shampoo bar for curly hair. I am Black and wear my hair naturally curly, and have found that this shampoo bar works great for me. If you're like me and don't wash your hair every time you shower -- or, if you have roommates who also use the shower but don't share shampoo -- I would suggest that you don't store the bar in the shower, even on a wire rack. Even just a little water getting on it during each shower will dissolve it faster. With my second bar, I've been storing it like this (https://bit.ly/2Rt9oOg), and I can already tell that it will last much longer this time.
This bar cleans well, doesn't dry my hair and smells fabulous. But smell doesn't linger and isn't overwhelming. Love it. My hair is dead straight and I live in the desert SW. This shampoo bar works great for me. Plus, it's not encased in plastic and the little box it's shipped in is recyclable.
I bought silk floss refills with the glass dispenser and it works really well. I love the aesthetics of the glass dispenser, too. I plan to try the corn floss next.
Refillable floss that's biodegradable is great, but the corn floss breaks pretty much every other time I use it. I'll probably stick with it, but it does take some getting used to.
I was a bit concerned after reading the description that said it "may break in tight spots", but I have had no problems at all! I am impressed with the quality of the floss and will definitely continue to purchase.
I love the container because it's plain! It's very easy to use and quite compact. I also like that my teeth feel thoroughly clean after I floss! However, I have a lot of fillings and tight areas, so unfortunately the corn floss itself isn't a great fit for those spots. I'll be using it in the areas that I can, and I'll definitely give the silk floss a go. The nice thing is, for the most part, I just need a different refillable floss type. I'm happy that it's plastic free !! And very cost effective!
I was excited to make the switch to this dental floss! The pros are that is is both vegan and compostable. The downsides are that it is pretty thick and that it breaks between some of my teeth. Those traits mean I will not be able to convince others in my house to use it, but I'll keep at it.
My skin needs a lot of TLC, especially during the winter months. I'm not prone to breakouts, but I have very dry skin and this product has worked wonders. I love applying this balm at night right after I've washed my face. I'll gently massage it into my face, neck and even hands, and when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels soft and supple. I also appreciate that it has only 5 ingredients. Highly recommend!
Okay, I don’t know how to rate this product. Let’s start with the good, this product I really admire because of its simplicity but it’s really made for people with normal skin with no problems with acne or dryness. The oils in this ARENT very moisturizing and I found jsut sit on my face instead of absorbing. This means it can dehydrate your skin so if you’re super oily or super dry, this isn’t exactly the lotion you should try. I’m also pretty acne prone but I was reading reviews and someone said it cured their skin so I figured I’d try it. It broke me out pretty badly, probably because of the olive oil. It’s a decent moisturizer but it’ll probably only get used around my eyes and when my skin is super dry I guess. I have hormonal acne that’s pretty acne prone, so it resulted in a lot of black heads and cysts. If you have acne prone skin just use something like Rosehip oil as a moisturizer. I’m sure this works fine for a lot of people but not for me
Amazing product. Nothing more needed to be said!
This product feels very safe and healing, however I found that I wasn't fond of the waxy and oily residue on my oil- and congestion-prone skin. I also found it pore-clogging, even though most of the ingredients are non-comedogenic (with the exception of olive oil, which has a comedogenic rating of 2). Unfortunately it won't work for my daily skin routine, but I've been using it on any dry patches during my retinol use, as well as a general skin salve :)
I have very dry skin, especially in the winter, and this moisturizer helps more than any other I’ve tried. It does leave some oily sheen on top of my skin so I dust some powder on top. So worth it though!
I love these!!! The obvious, they're stinkin' adorable. But also, they deliver! I have thick hair and normally need multiple hair ties, but that's not the case with the kooshoo ones! :) I'm also happy I had a chance to promote a good product/company in general. A great purchase overall. <3
I’ve long been looking for a more sturdy hair tie that doesn’t break every couple of months and that’s zero waste. These hair ties ROCK, they stay true to shape and don’t stretch out which I absolutely love. Plus I have dark brown hair and so I like that I could buy some that blended in with my hair.
Wore one of these for an intense hour long workout. I have a thick head of hair so I fully expected it to crease as well as struggle to hold my hair, not only did my pony stay tight the entire time, but when I took it out, it didn't take any hair with it and best of all: NO CREASE!! Exceeded my greatest expectations.
Love these hair ties and went back for more!
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!
In the past, I used liquid soap and am really happy I made the change to a beautiful, high quality, and sustainable alternative. The smell is nice and held its shape well, lasting us several months. It may be pricier than what I would normally spend, but well worth it.
I bought the eucalyptus & shea butter soap and it smells amazing! It's effective but not drying as a body soap. The corners/edges do make it a little difficult to apply to your body at first but I'm sure they will round off after a little more use. I can't wait to buy more!
The sweet orange + ginger is particularly great.
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 absolutely love this bar! It leaves my curly hair so soft and moisturized! It is the best conditioner I have found for my hair and even more amazing that it is plastic free! I love using a bar soap and conditioner too as it's so easy for travel with less mess. I hope the company that makes these never stops or changes the formula.
I've been trying to buy less plastic bottles and was skeptical of trying shampoo bars so I figured I would start with this conditioner bar and I tried a sample of eco collectives just add water shampoo. Hated the shampoo it left my hair dry but this conditioner bar is the best conditioner I've ever tried for my hair. I have thinner stranded hair but a lot of it that has a tendency to be wavy and I love how it makes my hair feel after use. Coming back to buy a bunch more and stock up
I love this conditioner! My hair feels so so soft, and this bar has lasted much longer than any others I’ve had. Highly recommend!
I was skeptical at first, since I've never used a bar conditioner and my hair is wavy/slightly curly. But I've been using this maybe 1-2 times a week and it's made my hair so soft! It's been working out well for my hair texture. I love not having to use plastic in my hair care routing any more :)
Easy, plastic-free bulk hand soap for refilling bottles. Lathers well, and the bergamot scent is lovely!
I absolutely love the ability to fill up my handsoap dispensers right at Eco Collective in non-Covid19 times . . . but just as easy was purchasing this same soap in a returnable glass jar (deposit to be refunded) and filling up dispensers at all the sinks around my house. Wonderful! And great quality soap as well!
I bought the 16 oz amber bottle. The pump works great. I use this for my moisturizing shampoo.
I had a couple amber dispensers from another brand's soap and wanted to find something reusable to match when we moved to a new home with more space. I ordered two of these pump bottles and they're great! Clean look, functional, chic- all I can ask for. Quick shipping and well packed.
Ordered 3 bottles (two 8oz and one 1oz). They were exactly what we were looking for after an exhaustive search and they didn’t disappoint. They are stunning and we love them. Also, the handwritten note means a lot. Thank you guys!
I like that it feels exfoliating, but not harsh on my skin. Great quality and very affordable. Once mine aged out, I kept it as a bath tub scrubber.
This was my first attempt at a plastic free dish washing tool. It took a few tries to kind of soften the loofah a bit and figure out how to use it, but overall I'm satisfied with how it cleans my dishes. It's definitely different from a kitchen sponge - it won't be super useful for wiping off surfaces but it does have more scrubbing power in my opinion. And it still holds onto soap. I'll probably buy one of the wood handle dish scrubbers when my loofah starts falling apart, but I'll happily compost it when that day comes :)
Good quality loofah & feels great to exfoliate my body with
I use mine as a shower loofah and it exfoliates wonderfully! Highly recommend.
This works great for cleaning dishes. I didn't like it as much for the shower but I will definitely be buying again for the kitchen.
This has been my first time using a ayurvedic tongue scraper and I’m never going back. It’s been so much more effective than using my toothbrush. Personally, I’ve found it removes build up and keeps my breath fresher longer.
After the first time my partner saw me use it, he wanted to buy one too! Highly recommend if you’re considering investing in one!
Scrapes stuff from my tongue effectively. It also looks great. After a few months, I bought another one for my wife.
I have used a tongue scraper for years but they have always been the cheap plastic ones. This is a great product. I have been using it for the past month and feel a lot cleaner. I used the plastic one i still had, and found that my mouth didn't feel nearly as clean. I highly recommend this one over a plastic one that you have to replace every month or so. This one is easy to clean and sterilize. Its worth the extra few dollars, in 2 months you've already got your moneys worth.
Never used this before. I’m addicted now. No bad breath complaints so far!
I bought the clear 16 oz bottle. It is easy to use. Pump works great. I use it for my shampoo.
i used these bottles for my shampoo and conditioner and i love them so much. i definitely recommend purchasing if you want glass bottles !
I purchased a soap dispenser. I like the size. I use a lot of hand soap and get tired of refilling smaller dispenser. The fact that this dispenser is glass instead of plastic is just a bonus.
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!
when I'm too lazy to make flax seed gel this is my #1 to go hair gel. It starts a little stiff feeling when my hair is wet, when its all dry it gives me the perfect curl for my natural hair.
Used it with my favorite leave-in conditioner on my 2c-3b hair and it left a nice cast with way less product than I normally use. I made a thicker gel by very gradually adding in water and then sprayed more water into my hair to help distribute. Definitely recommend trying to break up the solids before adding water since my mixture ended up a little chunky, but still worked well.
Overall really great product that I can see myself permanently replacing my old gels with once I've used them up!
I am SO happy I decided to purchase this product a few months ago! I am always looking for ways to simplify my curly hair care routine and as I am a frequent traveller who had plans to go abroad for 3 months, I needed something that worked and that I could bring a bulk amount of with me in my backpacker's pack. And this product is everything I could want and more! I have 2B/2C hair and this product paired with the Eco-Collective organic cocoa butter conditioner bar are a DREAM together! My hair has never looked better - no crunch, just non-frizzy curls that hold! I have a tiny jar with the solid gel powder and another with a small amount of the gel I've made while abroad as well as 2 tins with my shampoo and conditioner bars and BOOM - The ultimate zero-waste minimal travelers hair care routine. I will praise this product forever! Thank you Eco-Collective and Salon Solids!!
I was skeptical at first but this gel makes my 2b/2c hair look awesome without weighing it down. It even refreshed well on day 2/3 with a little water.
I have 3b curly hair and it works just like cantu’s Curling cream. I just use less water than suggested to make the gel thicker.
I love this product. The shape is aesthetically pleasing and the scent is amazing. I have only been using it for about a week but my skin feels soft and clean. I’m hoping over time it will help with my acne too. It’s more than worth the $10!
This soap cleans my face without stripping it dry. If I wash my face with a conventional face wash, it can feel like all the moisture has been removed along with the dirt. This soap actually feels like it's moisturizing my face. I'll definitely be repurchasing once I'm done with my bar.
I got this to replace a foaming cleanser and I love it. I'm not picky about most facial products, but this soap makes me feel good without a whole lot of effort. I haven't tried it with makeup or anything like that, though, because I don't typically wear makeup anyway. But for your everyday, average cleansing, I think it is very nice.
This face soap is moisturizing and mild. Purchased it for myself, but the entire household is enjoying it!
