When Marta, along with the nice folks at Nurture My Body, offered the opportunity to sample some of their products, I jumped at the chance.  This is a line that I’ve wanted to try based on its organic philosophy as well as the other good reviews I’ve read about the line on TIA.  I was fortunate enough to sample the following items:  Volumizing Shampoo, Conditioner and Citrus Body Wash .

First of all, I really liked the cute cobalt blue 2 oz bottles and plan to repurpose them as travel bottles.  The Volumizing shampoo has a pleasant fragrance and lathers really well compared to my experiences with other organic shampoos.  It leaves my hair feeling clean but not stripped in any way and I wasn’t bothered by scalp itch which can often be the case with some shampoos I use.  I also feel like my hair started to feel stronger thanks to the honey and oat extract.

The conditioner, with its combination of essential oils (sweet orange, rosemary and vetiver) as well as other ingredients like macadamia nut oil and calendula officinalis (pot marigold), has a distinctly different fragrance which required some getting used to…and I did.  It’s not unpleasant at all just different in an essential oil/herbal kind of way.  Nurture My Body does offer a fragrance-free option if that kind of fragrance is “not your cup of tea”.  After quickly getting used to the fragrance, I enjoyed using the conditioner and felt that it did a great job of moisturizing my fine hair without weighing it down.

Lastly, the Citrus Body Wash was “inspiring”.  Yes, that sounds strange but anything “citrusy” just gets me going in the morning and this body wash did its job.  I love that it contains several essential oils (lavender, lemon, lime, sweet orange, etc.) and has a mild lather to it.  My skin felt refreshed and clean and, like the shampoo, there was no feeling of my skin feeling stripped or dry.  Again, citrus makes me happy - especially in the morning!  I do wonder why water is the first ingredient and wonder if Aloe could be substituted, however it is a worthy body wash with no nasty ingredients to worry about!

I really enjoyed my experience with these product samples and plan to add them to my short list of items to buy in the future.
