I’m very picky with the foods I buy to put into my body, and I’m becoming just as picky with what bathroom products I use to get ready with. Right now, my favorite brands are Alba, Avalon Organics and Burt’s Bees. I use Alba body wash, Avalon Organic Body Lotion, Shampoo and Condition and Burt’s Bees Tummy Butter (to prevent stretch marks on my growing pregnancy belly).
When I had the chance to pick out products from swansonvitamins.com, I knew I wanted to review some natural bathroom products. I was given $25 dollars to spend on the items I wanted to review and were given all the products below for free.
I decided to order the Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Tea Tree Oil Conditioner.
I’ve had a very great experience with Swanson Vitamins and would gladly order products from them again. I went online to their online store and easily was able to search for products I wanted. The entire shopping experience was simple and so was their checkout process, which is a plus in my eyes.
A couple days later, my package was at my front door. I was amazed at how quick the order came. Everything in the box was in perfect condition and I was excited to get using the creams and shampoo and conditioner. The only thing I didn’t like was the extra large box they used to ship my order in. I thought it was a little wasteful coming from a company who puts out concern for health and the environment (at least that is what I got from their website).
I decided to wait to write my review until I had a couple weeks to fully test out the products.
So, lets start with the Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. I think this is a great product especially given the price, only $7.49, for two 16oz bottles. This is a heck of a deal. I loved that the shampoo really got foamy as you massage it into your scalp. I can’t stand when shampoos don’t do that. The conditioner left my hair silky smooth, I liked leaving it one for about 3 minutes to really soak into my hair and scalp. My only negative comment about this product is that it doesn’t really have a smell to it. This however wouldn’t make me not order the product again though. I just am used to using Avalon Organics Lavender shampoo and conditioner and right when you start using it, the smell of lavender fills the shower. That is the only negative I see with this product, but overall I really enjoyed using Swanson Vitimins Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. I would order it again.
The Retinol Cream has been great as well. I haven’t used a whole lot of it because using too much retinol in general while pregnant has been linked to birth defects. I only use it sparingly about once every three or four days and only started using it after I reach my second trimester. I really like the texture of this cream and how it applies and smoothes onto the face so easily. I would recommend this product to non-pregnant women. It is $6.99 for 2oz. A steal of a deal!
Onto the Wrinkle Cream with DMAE and CoQ10. I really love this product! It is $8.99 for 2oz, but that 2oz will last you a long time. I typically use two squirts of the product and it is plenty to cover my whole face. Since I’ve only been using the product for a couple weeks, I haven’t seen any noticeable change in wrinkles on my face, but I can tell you my skin is feeling so much more hydrated and silky than it was before. I highly recommend this product and will be ordering it again when I run out! Another reason I love this product is that it is paraben free which is a huge plus in my book! : )
