There seems to be a theme running on my blog lately and one I’m definitely embracing. Today I’m going to continue on with my love for all things Natural and bring you guys a selection of products from Friendly Soap.
Friendly soaps are made with a goal in mind, creating soaps that are Cruelty-free, Earth Friendly, Animal-Friendly and Skin Friendly. I really like the brand’s Ethos and the fact that they want to create a product that ticks many boxes but also delivers on quality. Friendly soaps are proudly registered with both the Vegan Society and Cruelty Free International. All the soaps are made by hand which then offers a reduction in energy usage. The ingredients chosen are all of the highest quality. They include Coconut, Olive, Shea, Cocoa and Castor. Essential oils, flowers, spices and herbs to scent are used to colour the soaps and add a gentle exfoliation property.
What I have Tried
We as a family have tried a large selection of the products. From the scented soaps, shampoo bars, facial bars and my husband has tried the shaving soap. We have been very impressed with all the quality of the bars.
The Facial Bars £2.49
Having not used a facial soap in years due to the fact I found they dried my skin out so much, coupled with the fact I have found the older that I get that my skin is getting drier. I wanted to put these to the test as they are Natural and be able to give an honest comparison. I have used the Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter cleansing bars. Both bars gave a lovely light lather, I applied using either a flannel or a facial sponge.
The cleansing bar was very effective in the removal of makeup, I didn’t have to rub my skin, the formula allowed my makeup to break down easily, thus giving a very thorough and satisfying cleanse.
I used the Shea butter as a morning facial wash and also on the skin of my son who suffers badly with facial Eczema. I was very pleasantly surprised that he didn’t show any reaction to the soap, which he can do with hypersensitive. skin.
The Shaving Bar £2.49
My hubbie has a beard but loves to keep the neck area to jawline facial hair free. To use the Shaving bar it is recommended that you use a shaving brush, coupled with hot water. Use the brush to work up a nice lather, apply and shave. The soap softens and moisturises the skin giving a lovely clean shave and soft skin.
Travel Soap and Shampoo Bar
Having used a Shampoo Bar before I was expecting a similar wash but I was very pleasantly surprised. What the Friendly Soap Shampoo bar offers is a lovely super lather, which lets you feel like your washing your hair with a standard shampoo. I dislike shampoo bars that don’t lather as I feel like I’m not washing my hair correctly, this bar does the complete opposite to any I have tried before and I’m delighted. My hair felt very clean, very nourished and not dried out. This is one product that’s a must for the shower. You don’t use as much and it’s pretty much on power price wise to a supermarket shampoo. Only offering a Natural alternative.
The Travel soap is a perfect all rounder, you could even use it at home as a multi-use product. The soap can be used as a shampoo, soap and deodernat. Added bonus for travelling is that it isn’t a liquid, so doesn’t eat into your allowance, hooray.
Scent Infused Soaps
The other soaps that we tried from the range included Orange and Grapefruit, Peppermint and Poppy Seed, Aloe Vera, Lavender, Lemongrass and Teatree. They are smell absolutely amazing and are a great addition to our bathrooms.
I definitely feel this is a great brand to invest in. I love the way the soaps are made and the fact the are 100% Natural and made considering so many options. From a price stance, they are very affordable for a Natural product. The fact that they are Natural and contain so many nourishing ingredients makes it a great choice for anybody with sensitive skin or skin conditions like our son. It’s a brand I will be most definitely be buying from again.
Have you ever tried any Natural soaps?
