The Solid Bar Company - Review!

Recently I discovered The Solid Bar Company and I was sent some of their products to try.....These were all new to me and I haven't tried anything like this before but was keen to give them a whirl.....

The Solid Bar Company offers a choice of luxury vegan personal care products including salon hair care bars, lotion and repellent bars, butters, balms, candles and soaps. They are all light, biodegradable, highly concentrated, eco-friendly and are suitable for use by everyone whilst travelling and in the home.....

Please note that these are sample sizes not the full product size.

Sensual Sandalwood Lotion

This a specially formulated Sensual Sandalwood Lotion for both women and men to moisturise, soften and scent the skin. It is highly concentrated, undiluted and long-lasting for a truly moisturising experience. It contains sandalwood, frankincense, patchouli and vanilla essential oils to bring calm encourage relaxation and assist the sleep cycle. There are no synthetic fragrances, alcohol, water or preservatives in this 100% Vegan hand and body lotion that is made in the UK.

I have been using this and for the last week or so and I really like it....I didn't think I would when I first had a smell of it but it has really grown on me when I realised how nice my skin felt after I'd used it....

Lavender Castile Soap

The pure, relaxing and balancing scent of Lavender has been blended with natural carrier oils to form a simple castile soap bar that is creamy, lathering and highly moisturizing, handmade and 100% vegan. Like all our products it is a product that is free of palm oil and synthetic fragrances, and is a non-dairy, SLS-free and Paraben-free product naturally scented using only Lavender essential oils. The calming Lavender has many natural therapeutic qualities including helping to relieve stress, pain and anxiety, improve blood circulation and sooth muscular inflammation.

I thought this looked so pretty and it caught the eye of Ellie my 10 year old....She is still at that age where washing is a bit of a chore but she has happily been using this to clean herself....This is great to use before bed as it does seem to have a calming effect on my girl.

Botanical Body Butter

This body butter has a calming essential oil blend which includes Geranium and Patchouli essential oils. It is a highly concentrated, undiluted Body Butter and is long lasting for a truly moisturising experience. It contains no synthetic fragrances, alcohol, water or preservatives and is a 100% Vegan Body Butter in the UK.

This feels so luxurious and a little goes a long way....

What I was most interested in trying was the shampoo and conditioner bars....I have seen these in the past but haven't tried anything like them before....I didn't even have a clue how to use them but The Solid Bar Company had instructions. Phew!

Herbal Vegan Shampoo

This is a salon standard vegan shampoo that that is suitable for ALL hair types including coloured hair. You can choose a shampoo and conditioner set to match your hair type; normal/dry or oily. 

This is 100% vegan, made with six herbal essential oils for a refreshing Citrus Mint scent or for a relaxing Lavender, Geranium, Patchouli scent try our Botanical Bars. Sulfate free, paraben free, SLS free and cruelty free, with added pro-vitamin B5 and hydrolyzed protein. This shampoo is super concentrated and totally waterless.

Herbal Vegan Conditioner/Shave Bar.

I felt nervous about using these but I have got on well with them...They are easy to use and they left my hair feeling and looking great. I have dyed hair and it did not change that at all. Phew. The only thing that I wasn't overly keen on the scent of the shampoo and conditioner bars but that is just down to my personal taste. You might love scents that I don't....

These products would be fantastic especially at this time of year when you are away on holiday....There would be no spillages in suitcases and are ‘carry on’ approved. The shampoo from the website weighs only 43gms which is a lot less than a bottle of shampoo and it takes up less space too!

These products seem so good for the environment so they have a thumbs up from me. The packaging eliminates all plastic, they use light, recyclable, aluminium travel tins or fully biodegradable packs and are committed to cruelty-free development and vow to never test their products on animals. Everything about The Solid Bar Company is good....
