Ok, so I enjoy 98% of the products that I review, for one reason or another. Then…along came Plaine Products! I'm in love!
Their recycling program is a stroke of genius and really sets the bar for other companies to follow. Alright, let's jump right into the reviews!
Plaine Products come in sleek and sturdy aluminum bottles that are recycled after each use. It's simple. If you want to order more products, you simply visit their website and order some! When the new products arrive, you send back your old, empty bottles in the box your shipment came in, along with the shipping label that is included (so shipping back your bottles is FREE!). Plaine Products will refill and reuse your empty bottles. How cool is that?!
You can sign up for subscription services, so you never have to worry about running out of products, or you can order them as you need them. This eliminates all of the plastic waste that you would have accumulated if you were buying standard bath and body products.
Did you know that plastic virtually NEVER breaks down? It just collects in landfills, in our oceans, and in our environment. Think about that. That shampoo bottle that you used 15 years ago and haven't thought about since is polluting the earth somewhere. Doesn't make much sense, does it?
Ok, now we know that Plaine Products has a revolutionary recycling program that will help cut down on a tremendous amount of plastic waste, but how are the actual products?
The Shampoo is free of synthetic fragrances and dyes, petrochemicals, parabens, and sulfates. It is suitable for all hair types and is vegan and cruelty-free (of course!). The scent is a refreshing blend of rosemary, vanilla, and mint. It is herbal, sweet, and invigorating… it's pretty perfect in my humble opinion! The formula of this shampoo is thin, which makes it lather up and rinse out quickly. This shampoo left my hair feeling clean, soft, and noticeably shinier. That is really saying something because my hair is naturally curly and bleached, and just generally begs for help and hydration.
The formulation of the Conditioner is also a thin consistency, with the same fabulous Rosemary, Vanilla, and Mint fragrance. The star ingredients include Aloe, Sunflower and Jojoba Seed Oils, along with Shea and Mango butters. I was a little worried that this conditioner wouldn't moisturize or detangle my hair enough because I am used to using heavy conditioners and hair masks. However, this conditioner is pretty awesome! It worked through my hair easily and actually lathered up a bit. It reminded me of a conditioning cleanser, which would be perfect for people that do not want to shampoo their hair frequently or have extremely dry locks. In combination with the shampoo, my hair was shiny, manageable, and smelled gorgeous!
The Body Wash has the same signature scent as the other 2 products. It lathered up easily and truly felt luxurious! My skin was left feeling soft and clean with a subtle fragrance. Coconut and Safflower Seed Oils, Vitamin E, Bamboo Silk, and Green Tea are just a few of the all organic, non-GMO ingredients that nourish and hydrate the skin. I just love natural products, they really are the best!
The Bottom Line
I can't say enough good things about this company. Their mission to reduce plastic waste while giving customers healthy, vegan and cruelty-free products is absolutely inspiring! The products themselves make you feel like you're being pampered at a 5-star spa! Your hair will be clean, soft, shiny and manageable. Your skin will feel refreshed and nourished with just a hint of a sweet, minty fragrance.
You really can't go wrong with these products! You will help the environment and animals while taking care of your skin and hair. On top of all of that, these products are delivered right to your door! It doesn't get any better than that!
