Product review: Unwrapped Life shampoo & conditioner bars

I’ve been using @unwrappedlife shampoo and conditioner bars for a couple of weeks now and I thought it was definitely time to share my thoughts with you. I chose “The Balancer” which is meant to be calming and smoothing, although they have tons of different types. Here are my thoughts so far!

What I love:

  • ✅ Canadian (Alberta) 🇨🇦
  • ✅ SLS-free (they contain sodium coco sulfate, which is a gentle surfactant)
  • ✅ Vegan
  • ✅ Really easy to use, with a lovely scent made from essential oils
  • ✅ The conditioner bar actually works! And it works beautifully.
  • ✅ The bars last a very long time.
  • ✅ Easy to purchase online (full range on their website and a pretty good selection on @welldotca )
  • ✅ They have an unscented option: Aspen.
  • ✅ The shampoo and conditioner bars are palm oil free! The company also told me that they don’t use ingredients derived from palm oil.

Things I don’t love:

  • 🚫 The metal tins they came with rusted in the shower. I’m not supposed to do that, ooops, so it’s 100% my fault. I’m now using the metal tins from Lush and they work well, even in the shower.
  • 🚫 Some bars contain silicones (not the ones I tried) and that’s an ingredient I try to stay away from.

Again, I’m very picky with ingredients but Unwrapped Life has some great things going for it.
