I've come across this product when the president of one of our brand partners gave me a bottle, and I have used it a number of times since I first tested it last April. What can I say, a business in online beauty retail has its perks! Hehe. An in depth review follows.
100% Pure is an American organic brand, with all of their product offerings 100% pure natural (guess it's obvious where the brand name came from). I first encountered this brand from Birchbox, as one of their brand partners. I'm going to let you in a secret: Birchbox founder Katia Beauchamp has become one of the people I look up to since last year.
To be honest, I've tried this product a few times only. I haven't gotten the courage to use it as it's a very cool product - I'm afraid that the time that I've used up all of the product will arrive. Am I weird? :)
The product info in the website reads: "100% Natural Hand Wash packed full of antioxidants, vitamins and other anti-aging nutrients for soft, hydrated, youthful hands. Sake (Japanese Wine), Coffee Cherry, Fruit Acids, Aloe and Rose Hydrosol repair sun damaged skin while replenishing hydration. Anti-Bacterial Herbs kill germs. Truly 100% Pure - no parabens or other chemical preservatives, no artificial fragrances, no sulfites or any other stripping detergents, no triclosan or any other toxins."
Yay to no parabens!
THE DAPPER EYE:
The packaging. It is neatly packaged in a translucent plastic bottle (so you can make out of the product's color and consistency inside) with a translucent treatment pump that dispenses just the right amount of the product. The label is very simple: a mix of green and black text with a light green background and some photos of maple leaves and pine leaves & cones for the earthy feel - very natural!
The product. Upon pumping the dispenser, FOAM! It just always surprises me every time I use a liquid product that turns into foam once dispensed from the bottle haha! The smell was okay for me. I found it too strong the first time I tried it, but the smell grew on me.
Effects. It's like your common hand wash - lathers just enough and rinses thoroughly. I'm so glad it doesn't have that sticky feel after rinsing, so plus points! (Sorry for the blurred photo :/ )
The Dapper Rating. 4.5 out of 5 stars. It's a nice hand wash. And majority of the stars I gave is due to the fact that it's a 100% organic product! No to chemicals! Haha
Will I buy this? With a price tag of PhP450.00 (approximately US$11) for a huge bottle and an all-natural formula, yes. :)
100% Pure Forest Hydrating Hand Wash is available for purchase online via Canary Cosmetics here in the Philippines and via the 100% Pure website worldwide. :)
