Rahua

I’d seen Rahua products in numerous ‘best of beauty’ lists way before I made the switch to green beauty products. I somehow never tried their offerings until a few months ago when Cult Beauty sent me a sample of their original shampoo and conditioner. I’d really liked it, but I’d found their original formula a bit too moisturising for my oily hair.

Recently, when my Living Libations shampoo ‘turned’ and became a watery, smelly mess, I thought I’d go for something more tried and tested. I’d heard great things about Rahua’s Voluminous Shampoo from a number of bloggers, so I ordered a full bottle without ever sampling it. And I’m glad I made that decision.

Tabitha James KraanTabitha James Kraan (or TJK for short) was one of the first brands I reviewed on this blog. Recently, Tabitha’s husband Dennes sent me some of their new products, including their Dry Shampoo Compact for Dark Hair and Golden Citrus Hair Perfume, to review.

For those who are new to the brand, TJK is an award-winning line of ‘clean’ professional haircare products from England. Tabitha is a passionate advocate of sourcing the best local organic ingredients to create products that are both gentle and effective. View Full Post

Living Libations is one of those rare brands that have unanimously positive reviews online.

These reviews are not just positive but poetic: people often use words like ‘magic’ and ‘alchemy’ to describe their experience with the brand.

Living Libations is a Canadian brand  created by Nadine Artemis, and if you are interested, do check out her YouTube channel, where she demonstrates some of her products with husband Ron. Living Libations products range from cleansers to dental care, hair care, perfumes, salt inhalers and personal lubricants. They are all very intriguing formulations, and if I had unlimited funds, I’d try every one of them. Since I’m always on a strict budget, I had to narrow my options down to three. Here are my reviews: View Full Post
