Testing eco-friendly products is always fun, but the best times are when something is useful as well. When Male Organics send us stuff, I can then groom myself nicely all in the name of research.
I’ve mentioned Dr Bronner’s castile soap before, how it’s basically a shower gel and how much I loved the peppermint version, but now I’ve been testing the tea tree version. Essentially it’s the same stuff but different smell. I’ve never liked tea tree oil, creams, facewashes, air fresheners and so on, but think that may be down to a nutty ex-girlfriend who used it a lot. So in the name of product reviewing I ignored my fear and jumped in the shower.
It wasn’t too bad. I mean there’s obviously a tea tree smell to it but once you’re using it you notice it less and get on with the lathering up. Used with one of those shower puff things you can get a lot of coverage with only a tiny drop of the soap.
And if you’re in the bath and are a bit bored, the bottle makes an entertaining, if slightly bizarre, read. But that’s part of the charm. The soap itself contains non of the chemicals you find in shower most gels and is all natural. I’m a big fan… of the peppermint version anyway.
