Hello guys! February has arrived! It was yesterday when we were celebrating the new year but now it is already carnival time! Gosh! Anyway…let’s talk about interesting stuff! If you already follow me on Instagram (if not yet you can find me here :D), you probably know that I received a lot of new beauty products for Christmas. Of course I tested them and now I’m ready to write you my TOP 3 natural products of January 2019.

#3: Caudalie Thé Des Vignes
Caudalíe is a French brand sold all over the word. It is not bio-certified but, as I wrote in my previous post about Beauty Certifications (here to know more about it), this doesn’t mean that the products are not good.
On Caudalíe website the Lip conditioner costs 6€ (12$) and contained 4,5g of product.
INGREDIENTS: CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE*, RICINUS COMMUNIS (CASTOR) SEED OIL*, CERA ALBA/BEESWAX/CIRE D’ABEILLE, C10-18 TRIGLYCERIDES*, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA) BUTTER*, MACADAMIA INTEGRIFOLIA SEED OIL*, CERA CARNAUBA/COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX/CIRE DE CARNAUBA*, HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL*, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), PALMITOYL GRAPE SEED EXTRACT*, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE*, LEONTOPODIUM ALPINUM EXTRACT*, GERANIOL, LIMONENE, LINALOOL
Well..reading the ingredients:
- they are of natural origin,
- the lip conditioner does not contain parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, mineral oils,
- it is not vegan because of the presence of beeswax.
I have been using the lip conditioner roughly for a month and I really like it. Unlike many other lip balms with silicones, which create only a thin protective layer, this formula is able to protect and moisturise at the same time (WITHOUT SILICONS). I’m currently using it and I really recommend it. You can buy it here.
However, the lip conditioner was sold together with the Hand and Nail cream for only 9€ (12$) as limited edition. It was pretty convenient to buy them together instead of buying them separately.
Hand and Nail cream
I decided to include also Hand and Nail cream in this review as an example. I always thought that buying natural products we only have to rely on the ingredients but this time I didn’t follow my own recommendations. The packaging and the low price attracted me so that, my brain had immediately associated the pic of grape to the nature and I bought it.
- it has a good fragrance,
- it is easily absorbed,
- not oily at all,
- the hands are silky after using it.
If you are looking for a good hand cream with a high % of natural ingredients, Caudalíe could be an option.
#2: 100% Pure
Does it all – Face mask
At the second place I cannot mention a face mask from 100% Pure. I reviewed all of them – there are 5 different kinds – in a previous post. Link here, if you want to have a look at them. The entire set is super, completely natural and the results are immediately evident.
Among the 5 masks, I chose “Does it All” because it is the most complete one.
This mask helps against sign of aging, helps to restore the tone of the skin and hydrates as well. So, with just one mask we can act against the main skin care concerns.
#1: 100% Pure
Honey & Virgin Coconut Shampoo
The number one is another product of 100%Pure. I am quite obsessed in finding the perfect shampoo. A shampoo that doesn’t contain sulphate, that not only cleans my hair but also can detangle them (I have frizzy curly hair).
100% PURE – Honey & Virgin Coconut Shampoo fulfilled my expectation! It costs 18.50€ (20$) for 236mL (8 Oz). I bought it on the 100% Pure German website. Here the link, but it could also be found on Amazon (US).
INGREDIENTS: Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water (Rose Hydrosol), Sodium Cocoate (Saponified Coconut) Oil, Mel (Honey), Vegetable Glycerin, Plant Cellulose, Fucus Vesiculosus (Kelp) Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Panthenol, Extracts of Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf, Urtica Dioica (Nettle), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf and Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower, Cocos Nucifera (Virgin Coconut) Oil, Salt (French Sea Salt), Extracts of Origanum Vulgare (Oregano) Leaf, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf, Melia Azadirachta (Neem), Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower, and Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Flavor) *Certified Organic
To test its efficiency, I decided to use the shampoo alone, without using any hair mask or hair conditioner after it. After the first washing, my hair were detangled and not dry at all!
I also tried this shampoo at the gym. Actually, for those who have long hair that tend to tangle, taking a shower at the gym could be a mess, especially when you don’t have a lot of time for washing your hair. In such cases, you try to wash your hair as better as you can but it could be difficult if the shampoo doesn’t help you. In such cases, after washing them, they’ll smell good but will still be dirty.
100% Pure Shampoo didn’t fail the Gym test! No knots, soft hair, amazing fragrance!
Yes, true!! The fragrance is absolutely amazing! If you like Coconut fragrance, this shampoo is the right for you.
