Most of you will be aware of my Holy Grail shampoo and conditioner however, before I found this routine I had experimented with many hair care brands, one of which was Louise Galvin. As my previous experience had been positive I was happy to step out of my comfort zone to use the *Louise Galvin's Shampoo and Treatment Masque for Fine Hair.
I feel quite strongly about brands who possibly mislead customers by marketing themselves natural and organic when they contain few of these ingredients. I personally refer to this as Greenwashing but others many feel differently. Back in 2013, I wrote an article giving guidance for buying organic beauty products. It's a little rough around the edges but the general message is you have to be label savvy if buying Organic is important to you. I know accredited organic certification isn't for every company because of the expense but as a consumer I do feel it is the only way to ensure the skincare products are truly organic. Standards such as COSMOS provide requirements for ingredients and manufacturing.
MooGoo is an Australian brand who specialise in products for those of us with problem skin (e.g eczema, psoriasis). I have known MooGoo for some time now and was more than happy to accept a product for review.
Sometimes you read the blurb on a moisturiser and expect unicorns and rainbows to come leaping out of the jar when you lift the lid. I like my facial cream to hydrate my skin and contain good honest ingredients, I don't need it to promise me the world and then some. This is why I gravitate towards brands with good ethics and simple packaging. PHB's products have been a winner for me for a while now.
