Burt's Bees and Thoughts

 Recently I had been searching for a natural shampoo to use. I wanted to leave aside drug store hair products which usually contain harsh chemicals. So on my search I found great reviews on the Macademia shampoo but to me a little over price ($20 for just the shampoo bottle), I almost bought it, until I remembered Burt's Bees!! I've heard so much from Burt's Bees natural products but had never tried their hair products line. I've used only their chapsticks. Great thing about them, they are free of Paraben, Sulfate, Petrochemical , and Phthalate. Best of all their products are not tested on animals!! Because of my transition to becoming Vegan this is so important to me. I just got them today so I'll be sharing my initial thoughts. I'll make another review about the results in about a week or two.

I went ahead and bought....

Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Shampoo
 I didn't like the smell from just opening the bottle, but once I applied it on my wet hair I fell in love. It smells so candy-like. Sugary, almost cotton-candy. The consistency feels almost watery, not what I'm used to feeling with drug store shampoos. Really had to massage my scalp to get a bit of foam.

Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Conditioner
The conditioner on my wet hair smelled like carrots! Yummy natural smell. It was easy to rinse it off. Unlike other conditioners that takes a lot of rinses to get rid off.

Hair Repair Shea & Grapefruit Deep Conditioner
This one I didn't get to try today, I will next time it's time to clean my hair. It smells really nice as well.

So in my quest to buy natural products for myself, why not buy the best for my little one too. I bought their Baby Bee Getting Started Kit...

Comes with five products in total...

Nourishing Baby Oil - As I was filling her tubby I applied three drops of this unto the water. Left things a bit slippery of course.
Shampoo & Wash - Smells soft so baby like! I really can't describe a smell for this. I applied this to her head.
Buttermilk Soap - For her body I used the soap. Also great soft smell just for a baby!
 Nourishing Lotion - After finishing her bath time, I applied this lotion on her delicate skin. She already smelled good from the previous products but this left her skin feeling ultra soft :)
Diaper Ointment - Smells great as well! I didn't get to try it on her yet.

These were my initial thoughts. Love how they are natural, great-smelling, and most importantly not tested on animals. I'll keep using everything throughout this week and the next. I'll make sure to do a follow-up.
