Sometimes, organic does not necessarly mean expensive.
So' Bio Etic is a french brand I have already mentionned on this blog when I reviewed the BB cream Perfecteur de teint - a french, affordable beauty brand which really offers a huge range of beauty products including make-up, skincare and body care. My regular trips to France are often a good excuse for me to stock-up with lot of beauty goodies I do not find anywhere else. I'm also very keen to introducing you new things than the classical french pharmacy brands we see or hear often about.
Here are some of the So'Bio Etic body care and haircare products that I bought a little while ago - Their cute packaging caught my eye in the shops and I liked the ingredients and…. the price!
All the bodywahes are free from parabens and only contain gentle detergents. Although not hyper-foaming, they clean really nicely without drying the skin. They are delicately scented with essential oils and enriched with a couple of signature ingredient for each product.
The creamy bodywash Almond and Honey is one of my favourites of the bunch. The sweet and yummy macaron-like aroma is very conforting while the creamy texture does a great job in soothing skin. Nice if your skin is towards the dry side.
The Lime and Guarana shower gel is the tonic one : fresh and zingy, it is a burst of dynamism and is ideal to use in the morning if you want to awaken the senses and gets a nice invigorating boost! I love it!
The third shower cream that I have been using is the Donkey milk creamy bodywash. Donkey milk is very nourishing and calming and is known for its therapeutic actions on skin disorders. This body wash contains also nourishing shea butter and moisturising Aloe vera, which leaves skin soothed.
Lovely trio at a great price (each shower gel costs less than 5 euros)!
Then next the shampoos. The SLS- and silicone-free shampoo range is also impressive and amongst all the varieties I bought the shampoo color care Raspberry and Pomegranate and the purifying shampoo Green clay and Lemon.
The shampoo color care Raspberry and Pomegranate smells really nice and has been designed for colour-treated hair (I don't color my hair though). It works really well at effectively cleansing and nurturing hair locks thanks to Rasberry seed oil and Shea Butter. Formulated with green tea extract, my hair looks healthy and shiny.
But if I want to have a slightly more astringent effect, I then use the purifying shampoo Green clay and Lemon which stimulates and deep cleanses scalp.
Both shampoos lather well. This combo has been a great pick to include in my basic haircare and retailing at a total value of less than 10 euros, you won't go wrong!
You can buy all the products mentioned here from Eccoverde.
