We all know by now how much I love discovering new vegan friendly and cruelty free beauty brands and I am always happy to work with brands whose ethics are in line with my own. So when the natural hair and body care brand Kind Natured reached out to me to collaborate on reviewing their products I was of course more than happy to oblige!
Kind Natured products are, as their name would suggest, both kind to your skin and natural in their ingredients. They have sourced the finest plant based ingredients and natural extracts to develop some beautiful fragrances which are designed to leave your hair, body and skin feeling its absolute best.
When it came to choosing what products I wanted to try I was immediately drawn to the coconut ranges because this is without fail my favourite fragrance when it comes to any beauty products. We’re also in the height of Summer and a heat wave as I am writing this and so I was naturally drawn to the products that were going to give me all of those wonderful holiday feeling vibes. There are however a number of other different gorgeous scents to choose from including Apple, Argan and Ylang Ylang to name just a few.
First off, I just want to say how easy I found the Kind Natured Shop to navigate. You have the option to search by scents or product type and there is even a Vegan Products filter which brings up all of the 100% vegan friendly products which makes life so much easier for the likes of me and you!
I am frequently changing up my haircare products as this is one area of my cleansing routine that I like to keep varied and really enjoy trying out new products in. I am always on the look out for haircare products which are going to help my coloured hair keep its vibrancy and give it an overall boost, particularly in the volume department.
I decided to try out the Kind Natured Coconut & Shea Shampoo & Conditioner which have been specifically created for coloured hair. These products contain colour enhancing Rooibos and vitamin rich coconut which helps to moisturise and hydrate your hair to prevent any drying out which is so common with coloured hair.
On using the shampoo & conditioner I firstly fell in love with their gorgeous scents, they really are everything I was hoping for and more! The shampoo foams up really well which is something I’ve often found doesn’t work so well with the more natural shampoos I’ve used in the past so I was really impressed with this. The conditioner is also probably the most lightweight one in texture I’ve ever put on my hair before, the formula is just gorgeous. Another issue I’ve had in the past with more natural haircare is that after washing my hair has felt really fly away and more often than not quite static. I was so pleased to see that this didn’t happen when using these products. My hair felt and looked great!
It’s also really good to see such clear and informative labelling on these products which can so often prove to be a minefield for vegans shopping for cosmetics. It’s also really good to see Kind Natured encouraging their customers to recycle the packaging which is something I am personally trying to be way more conscious of this year. And yes their packaging is 100% recyclable!
Another product I picked to try out was the Coconut & Passionflower Body Wash which is probably the most tropical inspired body wash I have ever had the fortune of trying out. I really love to have a wide variety of different body washes in my shower to choose from and depending on what mood I am in so this was a very welcomed new addition.
This body wash smells absolutely heavenly, it’s difficult to put it into words just how good it is. I tend to use a lot of gel based body washes / shower gels so this made a really nice change as it has a really gorgeous soft and creamy consistency. My skin has been really dry over the past couple of weeks and following lots of sun exposure and I just loved how nourishing and hydrating this body wash felt on my skin. It also left it feeling noticeably more moisturised after use.
The final product from the range I tried was the Coconut & Monoi Hand Cream. As a frequent hand washer I am someone who often struggles with dried out hands so I do get through a lot of hand cream and it’s a product which I am always stocking up on.
I’ve absolutely loved using this hand cream and it’s been sat on my desk by my computer every day so it’s been easy to pick up and use whilst I’ve been busy working. It comes in a good size 100ml bottle meaning you get lots of product but it’s also small enough to be able to carry around with you in your handbag, or take away with you in your hand luggage.
This hand cream has a gorgeous silky smooth consistency which just absorbs into your skin so quickly, you really don’t have to work at rubbing it in at all. It amazingly leaves your hands feeling soft and re-nourished without any residue whatsoever. The first few times I used it I was actually quite blown away by just how un-sticky / wet my hands felt after using. I genuinely think I have found the holy grail of all hand creams with this one!
Overall I have been so impressed by the products I’ve tried and I would definitely recommend them to others. They tick so many important boxes for me, as well as being high quality products, and I’m already excited to try other products from the range!
You can buy these products either at the Kind Natured Online Shop or also at Boots in store or online. Boots also often include this range within some of their special offers, like 3 for 2, so it’s well worth keeping an eye out for them there.
