I'd been looking for a product like this forever and was having trouble finding anything, much less something i liked. These are simple and inexpensive and get the job done!
I love the sensual bath soak! My favorite way to relax is to take a bath, and when I came across Bestowed Essentials, I was excited to try this salt combo. It smells great and really adds another element to bath time. The petals are also a lovely touch. I’ll definitely be getting some more when these run out!
This tooth powder works well and also comes in a beautiful bottle that can be reused. I will be ordering from this company again.
This was my first foray into tooth powder and I am a thrilled convert. It leaves my teeth feeling so clean and after a week and a half of use, I can already tell a difference in whiteness! I tried "normal" toothpaste the other day and it tasted disgusting to me (sickly sweet) in comparison to this stuff! I was worried the mint was going to be overpowering, but it is just a nice touch. I would highly recommend this!
I'm working towards a zero-waste lifestyle in college. It's hard to find ethical, sustainable and healthy toiletries on a college-kid budget, but these are great! I love that they come together. I'll be sure to supporting Bestowed more in the future.
Wonderful toothpowder, and we paired it with the bamboo toothbrushes. Fast shipping, eco packaging... what's not to love?
This shampoo bar really cleans my hair and leaves it feeling great after it dries. This deep cleaning bar with it's fresh scent and great quality cannot be matched! Highly recommend.
This stuff smells just how I like my face products to smell - soothing, calming, and slightly medicinal. Spraying it on in the evenings is an easy way to wind down and get ready for bed. Plus, the glass spray bottle is something you can reuse once it's empty!
I use this toner with the clay mask for sensitive skin and I love it, the combination is perfect! There's nothing harsh in it that dries out my skin, my skin actually feels smooth and moisturized after using it. I will definitely buy it again!
This hair detox really has done wonders for my hair. It’s cleared up my dry scalp and took the product build up out of my hair. My hair feels soft and light.
I purchased the bamboo tooth brush and the powdered toothpaste! I feel like both really deeply clean my teeth and leave my mouth with a refreshing taste/feeling. I also love that this company promotes low impact and sustainable lifestyles. Highly recommend!
I have extremely sensitive skin and I can never find a face mask that doesn't burn my face in the process, I love this mask because it doesn't dry out my skin while I'm using it. After using the mask my skin always feels extremely soft for the next couple of days. I totally recommend this mask for anyone who has gentle skin and struggles finding a product that doesn't damage your skin.
I recently purchased this bar as an alternative to using plastic bottles that can't be refilled or recycled. I cut it in half to share with my best friend and we both love it! I have naturally oily hair and this shampoo bar made my hair feel perfect and helped me go longer between washes! We love it and will be purchasing again!
I love this product! It isn’t an overpowering flavor at all- it is refreshing and natural tasting. It has also helped SO much with my gum sensitivity.
LOVE the toothbrush and powder! The toothbrush is sturdy, and feels and functions the same as a plastic one. I'm definitely a convert. The toothpowder is great too - teeth feel fresh and smooth. It was a little alarming to see black on my teeth while brushing, but obviously it rinses completely out! I haven't tried the shampoo bar yet but it smells great. So great that it arrived well wrapped and completely without plastic.
I really like the shampoo bar but I used it incorrectly the 1st time. Don't rub it on your hair directly, lather the shampoo in your hands and only use it on your roots. Can follow with an acv rinse if you have hard water. It makes my hair feel slightly more waxy than normal shampoo but I think with time i will get used to it. Love decareasing my environmental impact with this bar!
I absolutely love my self care kit. The shampoo bar is the best and leaves my hair feeling smooth and fresh! I love that the soap is vegan and is all natural. My skin feels smooth and fresh smelling after every wash. The best part? I get to see these results on my body knowing that I'm using all natural ingredients and this feels wonderful. I'm definitely getting these products again
I love this!! It leaves my hair feeling clean, soft, soft shiny and overall healthy once dry.
I love this tooth powder! So glad to have found an alternative to toothpaste and all the chemicals and plastic and waste associated with it. Thanks!
I have only been using this toner for a couple weeks now. My skin has already been showing some improvement. I usually have huge pores on my face, and they are a lot smaller now. I've had bad acne for years, and I have seen a decrease in how much acne I have on my face over the last two weeks. I want to test the toner out longer to really know for sure. The toner does not dry out my skin like other ones I have used in the past. Overall, would recommend to others!
I use this soap at night and I use the Florida Orange soap in the mornings, and they seem to be doing the trick! I've been looking for a vegan and cruelty-free brand for my skin for a really long time and my skin loves the soap. The smell is really mellow which I appreciate.
I bought this soap for my face to wash with in the mornings, and my face has been feeling so amazing and it's cleared up a lot! At first, I did have a few more breakouts, but that was expected. My face really cleared up after about two weeks. I use the Dead Sea Mud and Tea Tree soap at night. I love how soft both make my skin feel and the smell isn't too overpowering.
Great product. Great quality. Feels and smells wonderful!! Will be using this product often.
This soap smells amazing. I definitely recommend it. My boyfriend noticed how lovely it smelled too.
I have personally used the tooth powder and a few different soaps. My youngest daughter has used this face product and loves it so I’m getting her more. My favorite soap is the Cucumber spearmint!
Happy to report that this product is easy to use, feels clean after brushing and I feel good about the natural ingredients I am putting in/on my body. It is easy to get the powder on your toothbrush and you don't need much, add a dplash of water and smile for the mirror! I have been using it one week and hope the other reviews are true about extra whitening effect. So happy to be done with tubes!
Try them all, like me, and your body will thank you!
I had never used a powder face cleanser/mask before so I wanted to give this one a try and I am SO HAPPY I did! I use it as a cleanser once a day, at night, and it makes my skin so soft and clean. The ingredients are so pure, my skin loves it! I also use it as a mask twice a week and I mix it with green tea. I love that I can use any liquid to create the mask to receive different benefits. I will be trying the other masks soon when I reorder. (:
I really like this stuff! The black mouth effect while you’re using it is a little disconcerting but after using it and rinsing, my mouth and teeth feel so clean! It’s a little messy to use but not too bad if you’re careful. I also like that you don’t have to use much so it will last me for quite a while. I got the bamboo toothbrush as well and really like it a lot too! Will definitely purchase this combo again.
I so far had a good experience using this toothbrush, love that it’s cruelty free and makes me feel more earthy and good about using it!
I truly love this product. It cleans my face so well and leaves it feeling so soft. It is effective without being harsh.
I've been using the tooth powder for about 2 weeks now and am really enjoying it. My teeth are noticeably whiter. 100% would recommend.
My skin Is very sensitive to many products and I have finally found one that my skin and I can both agree on!
This is one of the tastiest smelling soaps ever bought! It makes the entire bathroom smell sooo goo! It’s good on the body and I couldn’t be happier.
Since I live in Humboldt and I love patchouli, this soap is a slam dunk for me. The patchouli scent is very light (I’d actually prefer a stronger scent, but I understand some people don’t care for patchouli - I just happen to love it).
I've tried many soaps from many different places, but this is by far my favorite! The smell is amazing, I could smell it before I even opened the package. But what makes this one so great is that the Dead Sea mud exfoliates your skin and makes it feel clean and soft. I have a little bit of acne on my chest and this helped clear it up!
I love the little rose buds - my skin smells and looks great afterwards. Highly recommend!!
