Before Christmas I was searching the internet and asking for recommendations on twitter for organic hair and skincare shops. On twitter I came across New dawn and liked what I saw straight away so I put in an order !
As you know I have been talking more about organic products on my blog recently as I have had a change in lifestyle from 2017 going into 2018. If you want to know more about this change then click here.
So I bought a mixture of small shampoos and conditioners to give a try in my favourite fragrances such as lemongrass and tea tree. My bottles are really tiny in the picture but on new dawn you can order all different size bottles 👈 The shampoos double as a body gel wash which is fab! Was looking forward to sharing my haul review on my blog but it had taken me a while to work through and use each product 😂
Then I went and ordered some soaps and natrual deodrants, originally I was only buying haircare but felt tempted as the products on the website looked so professionally made 😁
So now lets get down to the individual reviews and thoughts on each product 😎
Lavendar shampoo and gel wash : This one contains aloe vera oil aswell which surprisingly I couldnt smell all that much, the lavendar fragrance was strong and I enjoyed applying this gel to my body in the shower and taking in the fragrance, when I applied it to my hair as a shampoo I made sure I massaged it right into my scalp and waited ten minutes for it to sink in 😂 I guess I thought the goodness would sink into my hair and body lol ! Then I washed off and used my usual shampoo and conditioner. My hair seemed more fresh after and my scalp definatly felt better after this product 👏👈💫
Lemongrass conditioner : My favourite fragrance in the whole world is lemongrass ❤ so this conditioner was indeed my favourite, it contains aloe and Coconut Oil too. It went on and sunk into my dry hair like a treat. I concentrated more on the ends of my hair. I finished my usual condioner ( faith in nature coconut) and after i certainly noticed the bottom of my hair was like super super softer than usual and there was a fab shine 😍
Lemongrass soap : This was a luxurious little soap to use, the fragrance was stronger than i imagined and it had me sqeaky clean. I liked it so much I used it 4 days in a row 😂 It says on the packaging that I can use it on my scalp but it just seemed strange rubbing a soap bar on my head 😂
Benchmark thyme shampoo and gel wash : Again wasnt disapoimtimg by the fragrance, the thyme was lovely to smell. I used this on my hair and body, I used this shampoo another time and mixed it in with my coconut shampoo and the smell was stunning. Thyme is known to be goid for scalp health and thinning hair !
Lemongrass and lime cream deo :
I found this to be an effective deodrant. The lemon grass and lime fragrance compliment each other so well and applying the deo is so easy and is not oily or patchy. The cream absorbed so well and its does its job for a few hours. It handy enough to carry if your having a night out etc.
“An extremely effective blend of botanic & mineral ingredients this cream neutralises odour and discourages excessive moisture while nourishing underarm skin. Made with our antibacterial and antifungal formula, it is fast absorbing, non-greasy and ideal for sensitive skin under arms and for feet also.” – new dawn skincare
Lemongrass shampoo and gel wash : enjoyed using this product all over my body in the shower. My skin felt really clean and soft. My hair also felt soft after drying it and brushing it through, apparently lemongrass can strengthen your hair follicles and reduce oily hair and give an added shine. Id say i saw proof of the added shine after using this product and I also got a shine from using the lemongrass conditioner. Im definatly won over and thinking of putting in an order for a larger bottles of the shampoo and conditioner ❤
Tea tree soap : This soap had a very strong fragrance and had ne feeling so fresh. Tea tree is a powerfull oil and can really help psoriasis and eczema sufferers so this is the soap for you if you have these conditions. Tea tree gets rid of infections in the skin.
Rose geranium deo : This little product I adore as I like rose geranium oil as it has so many good benefits to being in your body :
- Antimicrobial – An immunity booster, this essential oil strengthens the body’s defensive cells to help it deal with toxic challenges both internally and externally.
Geranium oil has the power to fight nerve pain when it’s applied to the skin. Developing research suggests that applying rose geranium oil to the skin can significantly reduce pain ❤
Geranium oil is a circulatory oil, which means that it exits the body through perspiration, so you will smell so lovely when you sweat. The fact you can get so many health benefits from applying new dawn rose geranium deo is just fabulous 👏
Patchouli deo : This was just an impulse buy because I had never used patchouli before or even heard of it !
The health benefits of patchouli essential oil can be attributed to its properties as an antidepressant, antiphlogistic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, astringent, cicatrizant, cytophylactic, deodorant, diuretic, febrifuge, fungicide, insecticide, sedative, and a tonic substance. Fromorganicfacts.net
The fragrance is alright, very sweet but not as attractive as lemongrass or the rose geranium.
Patchouli soap : Again not so mad about the fragrance but the benefits of the oils seeping in your system are amazing. New dawn have good feedback with this being used for scars, wrinkles and acne. Apparently patchouli oil can ignite a strong sexual urge in some people 😂😜
