Pure & Green Organics Teeth & Gums Product Review

Pure Green Organics Teeth Gums Pure & Green Organics Teeth & Gums Product Review

I have tried many natural toothpastes and gels over the past few years but none have ticked the boxes like the Teeth & Gums from Pure & Green Organics.

My favourite thing about this product is the way it works in the mouth when you use it. Although it is gel based, it does not stick together in a lump which I have found with some others. This gel can be evenly dispersed around the mouth and teeth. I also like that it does not leave any chalky residue. The taste of this product is quite strong and I don’t recommend putting it straight on the tongue. However, this teeth and gum gel is very refreshing and leaves the mouth feeling totally clean and fresh.

What also gets a big tick of approval is the ingredients list which is 100% natural with no hidden chemicals and nasties. I really like the use of the aloe vera which I think gives it a great consistency and helps bind all the ingredients.

One thing to remember when using this product is that do not use it like a regular tube of toothpaste. You only need to use a small amount each time and the tube comes with a handy pump which delivers the perfect amount straight on to your toothbrush. It can be used with a normal or electric toothbrush too. The one tube can last for ages which is great because even at $15 per tube it will still be great value for money. And don’t be scared by the look of it when you first use it. Looks can be deceiving and it has a pleasant taste icon smile Pure & Green Organics Teeth & Gums Product Review

Kin Kin Naturals Eco Laundry Liquid Product Review

Kin Kin Naturals Eco Laundry Liquid Kin Kin Naturals Eco Laundry Liquid Product Review

Fresh is the word that comes to mind when I use this laundry liquid from Kin Kin Naturals.

If you have ever smelt your clothes just as you have pulled them out from the washing machine you would have probably smelt a somewhat pleasant fragrance but on sniffing again you realise that the smell is highly chemical and artificial and that there is nothing fresh about it! Mainstream laundry detergents are full of nasty chemicals and synthetics designed to make you think that if something smells fresh and clean then it must be. It is not until you start using a natural laundry liquid that one can appreciate the real smell of freshness.

The Kin Kin Naturals Laundry Liquid is a great option for those wanting to stop using chemical ridden detergents. Clothes come out clean and fresh and the fabrics are not damaged by the repetitive use of chemical detergents.

The liquid is easy to use. I simply pour into the machine as the water fiills up and then add the clothes. And unlike powders, you won’t have to worry about any white powder residue on your clothes. The only thing that I would like this product to have would be a cap that can also be used as a measuring device.

You can get about 30 washes from each bottle which is great value. I have tried the Lavender & Ylang Ylang but you can also buy it in Eucalypt & Tangerine.

This product is a must have if you use a grey water system and is also ideal for washing baby clothes etc.

The R.R.P is $14.95 and you can purchase the range of Kin Kin Naturals products online at organic stores or various retail stores around Australia. Visit the Kin Kin Naturals website www.kinkinnaturals.com.au to find a store near you.

Synthesis 345 First Love Exfoliant Product Review

Synthesis 345 First Love Exfoliant Synthesis 345 First Love Exfoliant Product Review

I have always loved using a facial exfoliant because I feel that my skin needs an occasional deeper clean to remove dead skin cells and to reinvigorate my skin. But not all exfoliants are made the same! What makes a good exfoliant for me is the consistency of the exfoliating particles and I am happy to say that the First Love Exfoliant from Synthesis 345 is the first natural and organic exfoliant that I have tried that has the perfect consistency!

This great product has 3 special ingredients to exfoliate the skin. Australian yellow clay, sandalwood powder and bamboo which gives the more firm exfoliating action. You can see the bamboo in the below picture and it is surprisingly soft but firm therefore it is not scratchy or rough on the skin.

Synthesis 345 First Love Exfoliant 2 Synthesis 345 First Love Exfoliant Product Review

After using this exfoliant my skin immediately felt soft and smoother and it also gave a nice toning effect on the skin. It also contains rose hip oil and aloe vera which helps soothe the skin. Another thing I like about this product is the lovely rose smell. It is not overbearing like some rose based products but it is quite uplifting.

This product can also be used as a clarifying mask by leaving on for 10 minutes before rinsing off but I just like to use it as an exfoliant cleaner a couple of times per week.

Synthesis 345 is an Australian owned and made brand and has a strong focus on sustainability and fair trade.  All their products are free from synthetics, irritants, GMO’s, formaldehyde producing preservatives and non-naturally derived ingredients.

If you are looking for an effective natural exfoliant that actually feels like it is doing something then I definitely recommend you try this one.

The recommended retail price is $44.95 and the bottle size is 130mL. You can buy it from their online store www.synthesis345.com.au

Be Genki Tranquility Body Oil Product Review

BeGenki Tranquil Body Oil Be Genki Tranquility Body Oil Product Review

I had always been interested in using a body oil as my skin is fairly dry but I was also a bit unsure whether it would be nice to use or if it would be too heavy and thick on my skin. Fortunately I was given the chance to try one from Be Genki and I am pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable it is to use.

The Tranquility Body Oil has been formulated to use before going to sleep and helps you to unwind and have restful slumber. Be Genki also has 3 other blends; vitality, serenity and sensuality.

What I really like about this body oil is that it is light-weight and doesn’t just sit on my skin or give a greasy feel. It is readily aborbed and has a great moisturising effect. The key ingredients which make this oil so nourishing for the skin are sweet almond oil, jojoba oil and rosehip oil.

I also like to use it on my elbows and other dry areas and have noticed a vast improvement in the suppleness of the skin.

When it comes to functionality Be Genki’s body oil gets another thumbs up because the dispense method is a great little pump which gives out a really good and manageable amount each time. I much prefer this than having to pour out an oil as that can usually lead to waste and spillage. Be Genki’s bottle makes it easy to use and involves no mess!

And of course I also like this product because it doesn’t contain any hidden nasties such as petrochemicals, mineral oils or artificial fragrances. Please note though that they do not recommend to use this whilst pregnant.

Be Genki is an Australian owned company started by Sam Sample and she is an advocate for holistic health and wellbeing and is regularly interviewed by the media for her advice. Genki actually means happy in japanese and I just love the positive attitude and daily reminder that every time I have my after shower ritual I can remember to Be Happy!

The recommended retail price is $32 and the bottle size is 100mL.  You can buy  it from their online store www.begenkishop.com

Saya Organic Vanilla Body Polish Product Review

Saya Organic Vanilla Body Polish Saya Organic Vanilla Body Polish Product Review

If you are looking for a great gift or just want to spoil yourself then this Organic Vanilla Body Polish by Saya is a fantastic choice.

This product not is only a great exfoliant but because of the natural oils it will also leave your skin moisturised and nourished after and you will not need to moisturise with anything else after your shower.

The exfoliant part of it comes from the organic raw sugar and sea salt. The crystals are fairly big which feels great against the skin and it also has a kind of massaging effect. The natural oils used include coconut oil and macadamia oil which have great healthy nourishing properties. After you rinse off just try pat dry your skin with a towel so you don’t wipe away all the lovely oils. This is my favourite thing about this product as I don’t have to do anything else to moisturise my skin after showering!

Saya Organic Vanilla Body Polish 2 Saya Organic Vanilla Body Polish Product Review

The one I have used is the Vanilla and the smell is just divine. It also comes in a Frangipani option too.

I really enjoy the packaging and presentation of Saya’s products, especially this one as it has a nice earthy feel to it and looks great in the bathroom.

Some tips for when using this product include; standing away from the shower stream when using so it doesn’t wash away too quickly, wipe away any residue in the shower because it might attract ants (or maybe it is just the area I live in), and be careful not to slip on the oil in the shower/bath. I recommend using this 1-2 times per week or whenever you need to spoil yourself.

R.R.P is $26.95 for a 500 gram container and is available from www.sayaskin.com
