Natural Heavenly Beauty’s mission is to help people live healthier, happier lives through pure, natural, organic bath and body products that are free of harmful parabens, petrochemicals, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances. To pamper without drying out the skin, NHB uses only natural preservatives; such as, 100% pure Vitamin E, tea tree oil and extra virgin Coconut oil. To create the best healing body treatments, their products tap nature’s abundant reserves of powerful essential oils, natural butters from Shea to Cocoa and more.
This scrub contains Castile soap, Vitamin E, Organic extra-virgin coconut oil, Jojoba oil, Grapeseed oil, Avocado oil, Sweet Almond oil, Safflower and Lemon Oils.
It comes in 9 different aromas. I chose “Heavenly Bliss” which smells like apple pie with a hint of cinnamon – totally lush!
I have to say the size of the scrub for me was pretty poor and if you are paying for this it is $25 for a tiny 4oz tub. I actually won mine to try so i have to say I’m glad that i didn’t pay for it and it is one big factor as to why i wouldn’t repurchase. The second factor for me is the packaging for $25 you would expect better than a plastic sample tub with an inkjet label it just doesn’t sell it to me no matter if the product is all natural or not packaging plays a big factor on selling your product.
The scrub is just your typical sugar scrub, but with added castile soap to help it foam more into a body wash. In my opinion it would be better without the castile. If you’re using it as a daily scrub then it keeps skin smooth and soft, but for me i only exfoliate twice a week and i prefer something more moisturising castile kind of kills the point in having all the oils in it for me and i still needed a body lotion afterwords.
I would only rate this a 6.5/10 i think the brand needs to think more about the price point and packaging of the items it’s just not selling it for me.
I started going No Poo around mid-march. It wasn’t a great success for me as baking soda dried my hair out terribly and ACV made it lank, I could never seem to get the balance right!
I moved onto shampoo bars after ordering a few samples on Etsy. I had much better results with those, but i got the waxy build up and just couldn’t handle covering my hair in dry shampoo to make it look “ok”, so i gave up and decided that no poo wasn’t for me, It was such hard work! (I was around 2-3 weeks in by that point).
I moved onto “Low Poo” choosing to go with Dr Organics manuka honey shampoo & Australian Organics conditioner pictured below.
This has been the best thing i could’ve done with my hair and i would advise others to start off “low poo” before going cold turkey. The first few washes were still a little waxy with the shampoo but honestly maybe only the first 3 and then it seemed to really start easing off. The conditioner works great but it is not like an intensive one that’s going to make your fried ends disappear as it is “cone free” but it still is a great everyday conditioner and works well to moisturise.
I have now started to go back to shampoo bars and i seem to be getting great results from them now, they give my hair so much body! I do a spray of acv and leave it in to balance ph. I might be tempting fate here, but i think my hair could be adjusting to the no poo way of life now. I no longer use cone loaded heat protector on my hair when i straighten (which i rarely do nowadays) i’ve been using argan secret leave in spray and i only use it on my ends as it does contain 1 silicone, but it’s right at the bottom of the ingredients list, so certainly not as bad as all the old junk i used to put on my hair and think it was doing it “good”.
I will keep on with this and update again. It’s still a learning curve and who knows what will happen 🙂
