With so many natural skincare brands flooding the market, it can be confusing when deciding what to try. For us, when looking at natural skincare products, we want something that not only promises petrochemical free formulations and skin-friendly ingredients, but we also want something that works!
Over the years we’ve discovered a handful of natural skincare brands that we keep coming back to, but we’re always searching for new things to try and brands to add to our skincare counter. When Human + Kind was brought to our attention, we had no knowledge of the brand up until that point, but we were intrigued by their story and philosophy. Formulated with Mother Nature’s kindest ingredients, Human + Kind products will help you give you and your body the TLC it deserves. The thing that stood out the most for us is their range of multitasking products. This means more counter space and less fuss when it comes to your skincare routine. Face, body AND hair oil in one?! Genius!
We were really spoilt for choice. So far, we’ve put 2 products through the thorough M + K test, and if these are anything to go by, you can expect to hear a lot more about Human + Kind!
Formulated with orange extract and free from nasties like petrochemicals, parabens and artificial colourings, the *Orange Shampoo + Bodywash is gentle and ideal for dry scalps and skin! We have to point out that it does not lather very well, so we found ourselves using more product than we usually do to cover all our hair. This is most likely due to the fact that the shampoo does not contain chemicals like cocamide DEA, MEA, TEA and sodium lauryl sulfate which are what makes bath goodies lather. But we’re willing to sacrifice a little lather for something that is more sustainable and better for our hair and skin. This beauty doubles up as a body wash which will save you luggage space for all the shopping you’re bound to do the next time you travel. Massaged into your skin or added to your bath, it will leave you smelling oh so fresh. The gorgeous, but subtle orange scent could be a little stronger, regardless, this is going straight into our travel bag!
How often have you taken a look at the back of your face cleansers and been overwhelmed by the lengthy list of ingredients?! Looking at the back of Human + Kind’s *Wash-off Facial Cleanser, we noticed a lean ingredient list, with things we could pronounce and are happy to slather on our faces. As with the rest of their products, the cleanser is free from parabens, petrochemicals and artificial colours. Made with goodies such as organic sunflower oil, jojoba oil and vitamin E, it leaves the skin soft and supple. The cleanser also comes with a reusable face cloth that gently exfoliates and what we love, actually removes face makeup. For this reason, we have been using it daily ever since we cracked it open. We find that the cloth and cleanser together really gets rid of the left over grime that hasn’t been removed by our miscellar water or even our oil based makeup removers.
Let’s not forget the fun and vibrant packaging!
