At the Kats Paws, we love natural and organic products that are good for the environment and are not tested on animals. We both, coincidently, have cats named Daisy (my Daisy is white and Kathryn’s Daisy is black) and have always loved animals, so the thought of little rabbits being sprayed and smothered in products makes me feel ill. I’m not vegetarian or vegan, and don’t have a problem with eating meat as I think the majority is done humanely and it’s a natural part of life, but animal testing is another story.
It’s important to look after the environment, so instead of changing massive parts of your lifestyle such as driving, try changing a few of your toiletries to something more economical!
We were sent a few goodies from the Faith In Nature brand a couple of months ago now, and although I’d never used any of the products before, I’ve been using them constantly since! Here’s a few pieces that I’ve loved:
Revitalising Body Lotion
I love a good body lotion, and can always tell the difference on my skin. If I’m in a rush and don’t moisturise or use body lotion after showering, my arms particularly feel rough and even pimply to an extent, and you can see a difference in the appearance of my skin.
The Faith in Nature revitalising body lotion does what it says on the tin. Well, bottle. It completely revitalises your skin and leaves it feeling soft and supple. I could noticeably see a difference too. It’s enriched with Organic Pumpkin, which is rich in omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids which leave the skin looking healthy.
It doesn’t smell chemically at all and has a pumpkin scent, which as first I was a bit put off by as I’m not a huge fan of fruit scented moisturisers such as strawberry, as I think they take over your perfume smell, but this was pleasant and wasn’t too overpowering.
I also love the cap on this that you can twist to lock, therefore carrying it in toiletry bags or handbags won’t be a problem as it won’t leak. Plus the pump makes it easy to use just as much as you need without it all glooping out, preventing waste.
Raspberry and Cranberry Conditioner
Unlike moisturisers, I LOVE fruity smelling shampoo and conditioner, a personal favourite being Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends. My old housemate Sadie once said that the smell of it would always remind her of university, as it has a really distinctive, fruity smell.
These shampoo and conditioners remind me exactly of it, which is already a winner for me. The blend of the two fruits are known for their antioxidant qualities, and contains glycerine and natural vitamin E. Again, the products are made from organic fruits and are cruelty free.
It left my hair feeling so soft and shiny without weighing it down on top of all the other products I use- hair dye, straightening balm, hairspray, volumising powder, the works!
3-in-1 Facial wipes
I’ve been using my Waterwipes which we reviewed a couple of months ago for ages now, and absolutely love them, but these are a refreshing change.
The Aloe Vera scent is amazing and revitalising, leaving my skin feel extremely clean and cleansed! These wipes cleanse, moisturise AND remove make-up which is amazing and I’ve been using them on an evening to take off my make up without having to cleanse and moisturise afterwards, which is perfect if you have a late night and your bed is calling your name.
They’re 100% biodegradable, so you’re doing your bit for the environment and your carbon footprint and contain vitamin E which is brilliant for the skin.
They’re also made for all skin types so won’t inflame sensitive skin or cause adverse reaction.
Shower-Gel/Foam Bath Minis Gift Pack
As you can see from the picture below, this minis gift pack has been extremely well loved. The 5 mini bottles let you sample the entire range and I can confirm that every single one smells amazing.
The range comes in 5 different scents/ flavours; Raspberry & Cranberry (like the shampoo and conditioner), Aloe Vera & Ylang Ylang, Seaweed & Citrus, Grapefruit & Orange and Lavender & Geranium.
Each are free from artificial colours and fragrances, and come in biodegradable bottles. They foam up brilliantly and you don’t have to use a huge amount to get a lot of bubbles, so they last ages!
The scents are amazing. The Aloe Vera is a particular favourite, which is calming to use before bed, whereas the Grapefruit & Orange is revitalising and zingy, and is used best as a shower gel in a morning to wake you up and get you ready for the day.
They make a great present for birthdays and Christmas, as they’re a little different to other ranges on the high street that you can get in sets.
Overall these little treats are a brilliant buy and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough! I’ve been using them non-stop and they’re still going strong so they’re fantastic value for money.
