# Alba Botanica shampoo and conditioner # Burt's Bees facial cleansing towelettes

3 Natural Beauty Reviews | Face Cloths, Body Wash, Shampoo & Conditioner | Natural Home with Jennifer

On today's Natural Home with Jennifer, I'm reviewing three beauty products: Method body wash in Energy Boost, Alba Botanica shampoo and conditioner in Gardenia (frizz-free), and Burt's Bees facial cleansing towelettes.

As a V.I.P. member with Grove Collaborative** (see my note below about V.I.P.s), you frequently get full-sized gifts for free in your shipments. This Method body wash and loofah was a free gift in July. I chose the Energy Boost scent because I love citrus and sea buckthorn. This is a great body wash. I really enjoy using it and like the scent a lot. Here's the description from Method, including the description of all four scents:

"Turn your shower into the kind of escape you need right now. Whether you want pure peace, an energy boost, a deep detox or some simple nourishment, each naturally derived formula features a trio of nutrient-rich ingredients and a scent that’s sure to set the mood. No parabens. No phthalates. No bad vibes.

Pure Peace is scented with peony, rose water and pink sea salt to soothe your soul and leave your skin oh so soft!

Deep Detox will help you unwind and deeply cleanse with the power of cucumber, seaweed and green tea.

Energy Boost will leave your skin feeling soft and invigorated every morning with citrus, ginger and sea buckhorn.

Simply Nourish with coconut, rice milk and shea butter to bring you this moisture packed body wash that will heal dry skin."

A two-pack for the Method Energy Boost body wash is sold on Amazon, but it is way overpriced there at $39.00 for the two (!). On Grove it sells for $7.99 a bottle.

My daughters and I have been using this Alba Botanica shampoo and conditioner in Gardenia. Gardenia wouldn't have been my first scent choice, but this duo is frizz-free, and that is one of my big concerns. I find this shampoo and conditioner to be very gentle and effective. Here is the description from Alba Botanica:

"Shampoo: For a sleek, smooth style, take a permanent vacation from the harsh sulfates and heavy silicones in ordinary shampoos. Instead, discover Alba Botanica® So Smooth Gardenia Shampoo, a veritable silk infusion of gentle botanical cleansers and calming extracts. Gardenia extract and soy protein gently nourish the hair cuticle so even unruly hair becomes beautifully sleek and polished but never flat. Destination smooth.

Conditioner: For a sleek, smooth style, take a permanent vacation from the harsh sulfates and flattening, heavy silicones in ordinary conditioners. Instead, discover Alba Botanica® So Smooth Gardenia Conditioner, featuring botanical treats to weightlessly smooth your tresses. Gardenia extract, soy protein, and light tropical oils protect against humidity for all-day frizz control that gives a sleek, polished look with no oil residue. Destination smooth."

I purchased the shampoo and conditioner from Grove as a set for $16.95, but I have also seen this in many other places, such as Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond, as well as CVS. You can also find it on Amazon as a 2-pack for the shampoo, and a 2-pack for the conditioner.

The Burt's Bees facial cleansing towelettes cleanse away dirt, oil, and makeup. I like the thick cloths and find them effective in removing my makeup. When I first used them, I noticed my skin was reddened after use, which made me worried that I would have a reaction to the cloths. I continued to use them, however, and it wasn't an issue. Do you use these cloths? I would love to know if you had the same experience.

I like the facial cleansing towelettes because they are:
99.1% natural towelettes
Phthalates & petrolatum free
Dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested

I purchased my towelettes on Grove for $5.99. I have seen these at CVS pharmacy and they are also available on Amazon as a 3-pack for $14.99

As mentioned in today's video, for skincare, I am still using Belli Beauty, which is a natural skincare line for pregnant women that is approved by both OBGYNs and dermatologists. Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator, Pre-Treatment Scrub, Anti-blemish Cleansing Facial Wash, Belli acne control spot treatment. After the pregnancy, I plan to go back to Pellu (formerly Nudu) natural skincare.

Be sure to watch today's video for expanded thoughts on all of these products.

Please note: next week, I'll be sharing Grove's September special, which includes the Mrs. Meyer's fall scents. If you are interested in Grove and would like to wait for that special, it will debut next week.

In the meantime, here is a link to Grove's August Special.

**(To be a V.I.P. with Grove, you pay $19.99 a year. This gives you free shipping and returns the whole year plus frequent and regular full-size gifts and early access to new products.)

I hope you enjoyed today's reviews. Please let us know if you have tried any of these products, or if you have a product you'd like to recommend, or have reviewed on Natural Home with Jennifer. Thank you, and I'll see you on Monday!
