I really did not mean for it to turn this way.
All I wanted was to try out some products and perhaps give away a few to friends for post-Christmas.
But when I went to the Human Heart Nature office (which is just around where I live), the person who entertained me got me to sign up as a distributor! For a few hundred pesos, I went home that day with a stash of trial-size products and a 20-percent-off privilege with each purchase. Plus, the opportunity to earn while enjoying organic beauty products.
Madali lang naman akong kausap so okay, I gave it.
Because my initial experience with the trial packs was good, I went back for more yesterday. Here’s my organic beauty loot (trip 1 plus trip 2 minus stuff I gave away to friends already, hehe) –
I got a 500-ml bottle of the moisturizing shampoo (P249.75) for my family because the kids and I just love the smell. Hair also feels so soft after shampooing.
The shampoo’s downside is that the consistency is not thick, like how we are used to, and requires a bit more amount to lather up. But I guess the reason is that it has no chemicals, no “thickeners” as other shampoos may have.
The mango-mandarin conditioner (P99.75) left my hair soft and silky – not exaggerated – minus the heavy feeling of the hair when one over-conditions. I have thick, wavy hair and I have a tendency to put on too much conditioner to tame it.
Patch loves how smooth her hair feels after shampooing and conditioning. Before switching to organic hair products, I did not allow Patch to use my (inorganic) hair conditioner because I felt it was too strong for her. One time, she went against my advise and used it anyway. She got dandruffs galore, which must have been a consequence of under-rinsing. And yes, that got me convinced the conditioner was too strong for her.
I used the lemongrass/cocoa butter/brown rice body scrub (P159.75) last night. I like how it made my skin feel so smooth, and smell so fresh. The lemongrass scent is invigorating. Unfortunately, *someone* was too tired (hehehehehehe) so, no – no fireworks last night….
I have yet to try the goat’s milk/cocoa/strawberry body butter (50ml jar at P89.75), but the smell is so sweet and yummy!
Coming up in part 2 is my review of the facial and kids’ products. Please come back for it. meanwhile I gotta go and get my kids from school.
And, oh yeah, if any of the products here interest you, you may order from me. 😛
Spa filters are important in keeping the air in spas clean. But, with an organic stash like this in your own home, who needs to go to the spa? 🙂
