Faith in Nature natural beauty products

faith in nature organic beautySome companies pride themselves on quick delivery. Other companies are so quick you wonder whether they got in the car and delivered the parcel themselves.

One such person is Karl from the Eco Green Store.

No sooner had I sent my wishlist than the postman was knocking at the door delivering my goodies in a recycled cardboard box – yipee!

Karl wanted me to try out some of his Faith in Nature products.

Faith in nature produce a range of natural beauty products with no artificial colours, perfumes, parabens or SLS and I was delighted to see the leaping bunny on all products, which means no animal testing either. They are certified by the vegan society, have been awarded Ethical Consumer magazine best buy and use some organic ingredients.

Their range includes hair care, bath and shower gels, soaps, hand washes, skin care, deodorant, feminine care and even household products; which come under the brand ‘Clear Spring’.

Karl is determined to get my hair looking good with the aloe vera shampoo and conditioner. Now one thing I didn’t tell him was that I have to admit I’m always worried about switching brands. I don’t take to it easily mainly because I know what I like and I like what I know, plus something that is a little quirky to me, but I’m extremely sensitive to smell. But how could I resist his determination to get my hair looking beautiful and my skin shiny?

One whiff of geranium or palmarosa, patchouli or ylang ylang can have me heading for the hills. I took a tentative sniff of the hair care products and was pleasantly surprised to be greeted with a fresh, zingy lime scent – so far so good.

Onto the bath gel and I know Little Miss Green is never going to say no to a bath again! I ordered her chocolate scent and it’s beautiful! It’s not sickly, which is what I feared; it smells like a good quality dark chocolate. She’s been asking me for ‘bubbles’ for ages and I’ve never found anything I would be happy with until now.

Finally, the seaweed hand soap which DOES have some of the aforementioned ylang ylang in it, but fortunately not enough to put me off for life. Apparently seaweed is rich in iodine, selenium and other essential trace minerals, vitamins and proteins. It is a known antioxidant, removing free radicals and reducing cellular damage, and regenerates and promotes healthy skin.

Well that sounds great – since spring the skin on my hands has been really suffering.

Karl is a great fan of Faith in nature himself. Having been sent some samples by the company he went on to stock their entire range. The chocolate shower gel is one of their best sellers and it’s easy to see why – you can get all that indulgence without the calories!

Eco Green Store stock a huge selection of ethical and earth friendly goods at affordable prices. I’m impressed with their speed of service – all my emails were answered the same day and my goods were dispatched on the same day. I was sent some samples too, which is a nice touch, along with a hand written note.

Their delivery is just £2.50 regardless of how much you buy. Orders are sent in recycled packaging wherever possible which gets a big thumbs up from me!

Once I’ve used these products for a month, I’ll let you know how I get on with them!

What about you – do you use Faith in Nature?
