A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to win an Instagram giveaway with some amazing products from Oolaboo that I had never tried before! Safe to say, as soon as I tried them, I was in love, and I was SO excited when they wanted to collaborate and send over some more goodies! I’ve been taking you along on my journey of switching to natural products, and I’m happy to have found some new natural beauty ones!
Oolaboo is an amazing, Netherlands based company started by two brothers that has grown into a lovely beauty and lifestyle brand. What I love about these brothers is what they stand for…beauty starts from the interior, so what we are putting in our bodies will radiate on the outside. Their products contain natural, safe ingredients…if it isn’t safe to eat, it’s not safe enough for our beauty products! They are all free of parabens, sulphates, and mineral oils. The fact that they are vegan and cruelty free also had me completely sold on this amazing company.
As if all of this wasn’t enough…Oolaboo created an amazing program called Project Aquam Servo. They want to increase the accessibility of clean drinking water around the world…so for every product sold, a litre of clean water is provided somewhere in need! I absolutely love companies that care not only about their own sales, but care about making a difference in the world
I received and have been using the following products:
All Over Gentle Scrub
Velvety Hand Lotion
Natural White Toothpaste
Pure Comfort Face Cream
Sample of Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner
Ceremonial Matcha Tea
All of these products are part of Oolaboo’s Super Foodies line, which is full of amazing products infused with the superfoods that we all know and love, like matcha tea!
My absolute favourite product is the All Over Gentle Scrub. I use it every morning on my face, and I find it just instantly brightens my skin, and the scent wakes me up! I come out of the shower feeling so refreshed. It gently exfoliates, so it’s okay to use every day I find, and I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin. I had some problems with small, white bumps popping up on my forehead, and I have found since using this gentle, exfoliating scrub, they have been eliminated!
The Velvety Hand Lotion has been saving my hands with this cold, winter weather. It’s a nice, thick hand cream, that goes on so smooth, and the smell is amazing. I also love how the scent lingers on your hands for the day. With winter coming, Rob always gets the DRYEST hands from practicing…especially his attacking hand, so we will really put it to the test these coming weeks!
The Pure Comfort Face Cream took my skin some time to get used to. It is quite thick, and I learned quickly that you don’t need to use much! I think when I first started using the new face cream, it was a little bit too thick for me during the warm temperatures. I like using a light face cream/oil in the summer/warmer months. With the temperatures dropping these past couple of weeks, I have been using the cream on a much more regular basis, and I am falling in love with it. Once again, the scent is fantastic, and I can see my skin brightening up!
The three smaller samples I received (the shampoo, conditioner, and toothpaste), were all wonderful, but I’m not able to give you a full review as I didn’t use them long enough to really get a good feel for them! But I can say that the few times I used them, they were also wonderful. I just can’t get over how good all the products smell.
Finally, the Matcha Tea. I opened this can and was instantly impressed with the smoothness of the Matcha powder! I could instantly tell that this was some pure, high quality Matcha, and it did not disappoint. They have been the best, most flavourful, and smoothest matcha lattes that we have ever had, and Rob agrees! (Canadian tip: add a little maple syrup in your Matcha Lattes for a hint of sweetness that I promise you will love #truenorthstrongandfree).
Overall I am so happy with both the products, and Oolaboo as a company. Since I have been so happy with these products, I can’t wait to try more! How are you switching to a more natural lifestyle? What are some of your favourite natural beauty and self-care products? Let me know in the comments!
