I'm so glad I bought this after reading the reviews. My hair is shoulder length, curly and quite thin. This is PERFECT for it! I finally have hydrated, voluminous locks that lasts for days. All those barely used bottles of shampoo and conditioner I no longer need will be repurposed as shaving cream until the end of time because I've finally found my holy grail hair care products. Thank you Eco Collective!!!! Also, I'm so elated to see it's local :)
Okay, so here's the deal... I have been on the lookout for a new conditioner bar. My hair is fine, straight, shoulder-length, but THICK. All of the bars I have tried...static. Static! So I did some research and found this one. I am soooo glad I did. Oh my gosh. Wonderful. Awesome. Such great moisture, no static, and great body. Did I mention, I live in New Mexico? Yeah, so there's that.
I am so pleased. Thank you.
I have tried many conditioner bars and this is the first time that actually gives my thick, wavy hair enough moisture. It's great!
I use this exclusively as my conditioner. I have very long tangly hair and this stuff does a great job keeping my hair hydrated and shiny. Lasts a really long time. I like that this bar doesn’t start crumbling and dissolving like other bars I’ve used. Smells good. Well-made product!
I'm really pleased with how well this bar conditions. My hair feels great--much nicer than with my previous, mass-produced conditioner, though I'd been happy with that before.
The one thing I'd note is that I disagree with the description of having a "subtle scent of cocoa butter." All I smell is the geranium essential oil, to a moderately strong degree (based on an earlier review I wonder if the product has changed, or maybe scents are really that subjective!). If you're looking for an unscented or low-scent product, this probably isn't it. But for a scented conditioner this really works wonderfully.
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 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!
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 was really excited for this product and I think it works well but there are a couple of things that could be added.
My first thought was the powder was really hard to measure because it had been mashed so much it came out like a sheet of paper and I cut it then tried to break it up into a powder. THe boiling process was easy, but I think that I didn't make it strong enough (too watery) because it didn't hold very long.
Love the idea but I need more instruction maybe? I felt a little dumb in my kitchen like hohoho let me make my hair mask.
Also does it go in the fridge? I have been keeping it there haha
I am so happy I was told about this bar by Genevieve (I think that's how you spell her name (sorry!) She is one of the co-owners of Eco Collective). I have always been nervous about switching up my skincare routine because my skin is my biggest point of low self-esteem if it doesn't look good and I'm acne prone at times, but I'm glad I made the switch! I feel like I almost have less breakouts, and when they do happen, they go away so much more quickly! I also started using jojoba oil from Eco Collective as well after I wash my face. I'm about to start using rose water as well just to see what happens! Thanks for all you guys do at Eco Collective!!!
I have mild acne and using this soap has really helped my skin look less oily and more healthy! I also think the scent is quite calming and very nice on your face. Would highly recommend!
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.
I was very excited to try out a zero waste face wash from Eco Collective. The design and ingredients are great. However, after the first couple of washes, I discovered some sort of plastic inside the soap bar. It seemed to be in the middle of the bar and had pieces sticking out that would scrape my face. Not sure if it was just an error bar but I was pretty disappointed. Hopefully the rest are not like this one!
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!
