I've been greatly surprised by the large range of organic produce on offer in the supermarkets, out here in France. Not only do they now provide a huge variety of organic food, but they are also now stretching out into the toiletries aisle too.
Taking a peruse in SuperU, I came across Biopha Nature & decided to give some of their products a try.
After my disastrous experience with Dr Organic, I thought I would try out a new shampoo & conditioner. I picked a shampoo for dry hair, as my locks are lacking all kinds of lustre at present. Unfortunately, as seems to be the case in France, there was only one option of conditioner, which was a shea butter one, for all hair types.
I quite liked the shampoo, it had a lovely smell & it left my hair feeling squeaky clean, the conditioner on the other hand...You see, I have very difficult hair, it's fine, but there's a lot of it & it tangles ridiculously easily! Such a pain! I find the best solution, is to brush it with a tangle teaser when it's smothered in conditioner, then rinse it out & leave it the hell alone. Unfortunately, this conditioner, which lacks any real scent, doesn't spread throughout my hair very easily & simply isn't rich enough, leaving it impossible to get my brush through it! Resulting in tangle central!
I have to admit, I have a lifelong love affair with Palmer's Cocoa Butter. It's thick, creamy & keeps my skin smooth, toned & happy. Unfortunately, it's not the most natural of products & so, I have been attempting to find an alternative, since my 400ml bottle ran out. This body milk by Biopha isn't bad, but I'm not quite used to using a milk, instead of a thick butter. It goes on nicely & has a really pleasant smell, but I don't find my skin as hydrated as with a butter. I think I'll carry on my search.
Now, these eye wipes, which I have been using to take all my makeup off with, are my new favourites! Firstly, they smell like almond macaroons! So sweet & delicious, I have to stop myself from nibbling on them. Most importantly, they remove all my face paint & don't leave my skin dried out & blotchy. Hoorah! Biopha Nature have succeeded in getting something right!
All in all, not a bad range, especially for something available in the supermarché!
