Love Beauty and Planet's new Hair and Body Products

I'm so excited to see the new Boracay this summer 2019. While I was preparing my toiletry kit, and on the search for a good sunscreen, I came across an article which introduces a new category called "Reef Safe" sunscreen products. Research says some of the chemicals found on some traditional sunscreens are the cause of irreparable coral bleaching. It's chemical pollution and not global warming according to environmental experts.

It's a good thing that there are now many companies who continue to raise awareness about the impact of ingredients on products to our happy planet.  What great timing when I was recently invited by Unilever on it's product launch of Love Beauty and Planet - an eco-beauty brand introducing hair and body care products.  The brand name speaks for itself.

This summer, they are introducing two new scents.  The Coconut Oil and Ylang-Ylang collection, and the Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower collection.



Infused with Philippine coconut oil to provide moisture, and yang-ylang to give a floral, jasmine-like scent.  The Coconut Oil and Ylang-Ylang collection is designed to repair and prevent split ends, and nourish skin with the feeling of early morning freshness.  Meanwhile, the Coconut and Mimosa Flower collection keeps hair strong and full of bounce, and gently cleanses and refreshes skin, while giving off a fresh fragrance.

The new collections contain the signature traits of Love Beauty and Planet.  The ingredients are sustainably sourced from around the world such as Morocco, Comoros and even the Philippines.  The hair care and body products are also certified vegan and cruelty-free, with zero silicones, dyes, parabens, or colorants.

The brand also infuses fast-rinse technology into their conditioners, which means that it will break down and wash off faster, leading you to use less water in the shower.  Also, each bottle is made of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, and is 100% recyclable too!


I brought my Love Beauty and Planet Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash (Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower variant) to Boracay, and here's my review:

The shampoo and conditioner dispenses well in an easy cap, the shampoo is clear with no colorants whereas the conditioner comes in a white cream form.  When I was using the shampoo and conditioner combo, I noticed that it feels like a normal shampoo and conditioner, but with a more fragrant summer scent.  Both were easy to rinse off as claimed.  But I saw the full result when I was styling my hair, it felt light, easy to manage, frizz-free and smells summery good. 

The body wash comes in a clear form with no colorants.  I did not use a loofah, for fear of irritating my sun-kissed skin, but instead used it like a regular soap.  It is mild, gentle cleansing and fragrant, perfect for Boracay weather.  It is easy to wash off, which saves plenty of fresh water.  My skin smells fresh and felt silky smooth after bathing.
