Eden BodyWorks Product Review

logo

A few months ago I attended an event and I came across a new brand of products for me but they are probably not so new to you. I stumbled across the brand EDEN BodyWorks and today I am going to share my experience with one the products I purchased. But before I spill the tea with The Glam it or Slam it, let me give you the beauty 411 about the natural brand (just in case you are a newbie just like me) LOL!

Eden Body Works is all about maintaining the hair and body’s original design by offering natural products to incorporate wellness and beauty. An 11-year-old girl named Jasmine Lawrence created the company. She was frustrated by the lack of natural products to repair her damaged hair and she wanted something that would leave it feeling healthy. And after much trail and error of mixing ingredients to find a complete product, by age 13, she crafted the perfect solution and found her “Eden” in EDEN BodyWorks in 2004.

Today, the products continue to use the same natural ingredients that Jasmine started with; they are made without petroleum, mineral oils and sulfates. The products continue to repair and strengthen all hair textures whether it’s relaxed or natural. These products are targeted to give you healthier, stronger hair.

Now that we have uncovered the history behind the brand, let’s talk about which product (out of the five I purchased) I decided to review…don’t judge my overindulgence with my spending habits when it comes to beauty because I am sucker for products and I just can’t help it! I have a problem and I am not afraid to admit it and I don’t need an intervention…LBVS (Giggles)! But I digress…the product I decided to review is the Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo.

Here’s The Glam: The Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo has a minty fresh smell and it invigorates my scalp. It helps my hair and scalp feel refreshed and renewed by removing all the buildup from the week. It’s gentle because it’s made without harsh chemicals so it does not leave my hair feeling dry. The tea tree detoxes my scalp to relieve it from dry patches or flakes. A little goes a long way and even though it is sulfate free…it offers a great lather.

Here’s The Slam: hmmm…let me see, NOTHING!

My final grade for the Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo by EDEN BodyWorks is 5 out of 5 smooches…MUAH! I love this shampoo; it leaves my hair clean without that drying feeling! And most of all, I love the price…$8.99. If you are interested in purchasing this product, head over to edenbodyworks.com to locate a list of stores in your area or you can purchase it on their website. Happy Shampooing!

Report Card Review for: Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo

Report Card Review for: Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo
I received this shampoo from my monthly subscription of Birchbox. I was so excited when I noticed not just a shampoo but one that clarifies as well!!! Woo Hoo…the Birchbox team must love me!!!
This French inspired brand has 4 product selections that were inspired by simplicity and a special moment in Paris. Their goal is to deliver quality products with an extraordinary experience. The products have botanical ingredients with innovative technology. With anti aging formulas this color-protecting brand is gluten, sulfate, sodium and paraben free as well as 100% vegan.
I have been using this shampoo for 2 weeks now and here is what I liked…it lathered very well although it is free of sulfates and sodium chlorides (detergents that make shampoos lather and foam and are known to strip color and natural oils). A little goes a long way; I only had to use a dime size. It smelled really clean and fresh of white freesia, golden amber and warm musk. The shampoo also has antioxidants and vitamin C, which help protect against the earth’s environment, and promotes healthier hair.

I know this sounds like it is too good to be true and you are probably ready to run out and buy a bottle now but I have to tell you what I did not like before you go and spend your money 🙂 The biggest minus for me is that it was too moisturizing. I have used clarifying shampoos most of my adult life and I must say that I have never had any that felt like this (even sulfate free shampoos). Don’t get me wrong; I like a shampoo with moisturizing properties but not in the one that clarifies. I need to feel that squeaky-clean feeling in my hair when I am removing product build up and pollution. I felt like it really did not clarify because of the remainder of moisture it left behind.
My final grade is 3.5 out of 5 smooches. I would not go out and purchase it for myself because I can’t stand that much moisture in a clarifying shampoo but if moisture is not an issue for you, you can purchase Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo from birchbox.com for $32. Happy Clarifying!!!
