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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 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!
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.
Great little jars with secure tops! Used them to hold soap and they work perfectly!
These are really well made jars. Airtight. Nice rubber inside the lid. Great company to work with. Such nice people.
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 will admit to having been a bit of a nail polish hoarder during my adolescent years, and have bought probably 100 nail polishes of different brands. My dad picked this color up for me while shopping here, and I didn't expect much - my default is to thing more natural products won't perform as well, however beneficial they are for the environment. Well I was dead wrong - this nail polish is buttery and beautiful, and is opaque with just one coat. The amount of compliments on the color on this polish far exceeded the name brand ones I usually bought. I cannot stress enough how worthwhile this investment is - please support this business!!!
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've been eating these mints on an almost regular basis after lunch. When I'm at work I'm usually in a hurry and don't have time to brush my teeth after so these mints are really nice and easy to use. I do want to point out though, that I only use them because of the xyletol in them and not actually for "fresh breath". I've only tried the orange flavor so far so I can't speak for the other flavors yet but It's definitely more like a candy.
These are so good. I can't decide which flavor is the best.
I sadly did not like these at all. I was excited to purchase them but they didn’t stand out to me, especially at $6. They just lacked in flavor/taste. I can’t see them “covering up” any bad breath. I gave 3 stars because I like the package and idea.
These are really nice to have. I keep some in my purse for emergency breath refresh. The orange cardamom is amazing. I am trying NOT to eat them all at once they are so good. I highly recommend these in their handy little box.
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.
So happy to move towards sustainable makeup. These cases are wonderful! The magnets are SUPER strong too. In fact, these are so beautiful my boyfriend thought they were too pretty to get "ruined" in my makeup drawer!
I wanted to love this bar, but I couldn't. I tried it for 2 weeks. When my hair dried, it was dull and covered in a thick layer of residue. I tried using less shampoo, rinsing it for longer. Nothing worked. My hair felt dirtier right after my showers than it would after 3 days of not washing it. Oh well. I suppose I can use it as body wash, but I don't really want a layer of residue on my body either. I got the "Refresh" version
When I switched to shampoo bars I started out using Friendly from the UK. It worked great but I wanted something closer to home/lower carbon footprint. The sage on the mountain bar finally was my local match! I have fine but curly hair so I need a carefully balanced bar to cut down frizz but without too much oil. These bars are perfect, no nasty residue and the sent is wonderful. Warning, the first couple of times I used the bar the scent was strong, but the smell after washing and when your hair is dry is mild so don't worry.
Absolutely love this shampoo bar. Leaves all hair types from thin and straight, to curly, to thick and wavy - feeling and smelly great. Great alternative to bottled, everyday shampoo.
Love this shampoo bar! It's an easy lather and will last a long time.
At first I was worried it smelled to strong but my washed hair smelled amazing when I got out of the shower. It dried super clean and soft. The shampoo even had a nice satisfying foam to it
I got this eye shadow because I love the idea of a local-ish company run by women. I like the zero-waste packaging. The union is beautiful and really brightens up my eyes! I loooove it. I'm not a big make up wearer but I find myself wanting to wear this eye shadow! I would absolutely buy more.
This sunscreen is amazing. It is moisturizing, so on my oily skin I use this without moisturizer underneath. I love the way this blurs my pores and really gives enough coverage for me. It goes on so nice, and blends well. Feels a little greasy initially but does soak into skin so that soon after applying I don't notice it being greasy at all. Everyone who wants zero waste moisturizing sunscreen should try this! I got the tan and works well for my olive skin in winter, though I may try dark for summer.
I was worried about trying this product due to a lot of other sunscreens in the past leaving a white film on my face and being difficult to apply. This sunscreen though, is everything I have been looking for in a product, applies easily and smoothly, and doesn’t leave any white or greasy film on my face! It actually also kind of acts like a BB cream and provides a little/light foundation like coverage on the face. I would highly recommend this product.
