If you’ve been around here long enough, you’ll know all about my love for skincare. Particularly natural skincare. I’m a sucker for a good shampoo bar or all-natural exfoliant. So when Little Soap Co. reached out asking if I would like to try out some products from the Eco Warrior soap collection, I jumped at the chance!
Eco Warrior is a range of six soap bars, all specific to a different aspect of eco friendly life. I was kindly sent their sensitive facial bar and shaving bar to try out.
These bars are designed to be good to you and the planet. Each 100g bar is priced at £4.50. A bargain considering bar soaps tend to last twice the amount of time a liquid soap would. A typical bar soap would last me 2-4 months on average (with regular use).
The sensitive facial bar – I was overjoyed to try this bar out! I’ve got psoriasis which primarily affects my face, scalp, and hands. Lately my face has been somewhat troublesome and has been reacting badly to my usual skincare products.
The bar itself lathers up easily with a little water, and glides smoothly over the skin. I often find bar soaps can be difficult to rinse off the skin, but I had no issues here. The soap doesn’t settle uncomfortably on the skin and leaves the skin feeling smooth without being too abrasive.
Would I buy this again? Absolutely. Would I consider introducing it to my skincare routine? Definitely.
The shaving bar – I’ve only used one other shaving bar in the past so was keen to try this one. Once again, the bar lathers up easily with water and was easy to apply to the skin. I loved the scent of this bar as the lime really comes through, giving a fresh citrus scent.
I’ve found that the lather from shaving bars often settles on the skin as you shave. The best technique to combat this is to apply a liberal amount of soap, then regularly add small amount of water and lather up before going back in with the razor.
Post-shave I was pleased to find my skin felt soft, smooth, and wasn’t as irritated by shaving as it usually would be.
In addition to being good for the planet, Eco Warrior are definitely good for you and your skin. Of the products I’ve tried, I’ve been impressed and am keen to try out the other four bars from the Eco Warrior range. Particularly the orange & ginger shampoo bar.
For me, Eco Warrior ticks all the boxes. British made, recyclable, biodegradable, cruelty free, and vegan. What more could an eco warrior like myself ask for?!
At £4.50 you really can’t go wrong. After all, a lot of bar soaps can retail for upwards of £5 – particular in the current climate as soap has become a real hot commodity! Additionally, you can pick up the full set with gift wrapping for £28 on their website. Why not surprise your eco-conscious loved ones?
