Love the apple cider vinegar and citrus shampoo bar. Really cleans your hair well. I love it.
All Bestowed Essentials soaps I've tried are rich and creamy and softening to my skin. This one has a warm cozy scent that, while mild, lasts a bit longer on my skin than some others. It reminds me of bread or nice homey baking smells.
These loofahs are sewn into the perfect size and shape to be an ideal alternative to conventional sponges for anyone who likes to use those for cleaning. They would really make a great gift for a friend or family member who uses conventional sponges, and who may not be used to all-natural products, and might not find this on their own. Every part of these sponges is home compostable; even the minimal paper label band is glued to itself with what seems to be starch rather than plastic tape or plasticy glue! I am really excited that this sponge exists! I have washed many sinkloads of dishes with one (it comes in a pack of 3), and have run it through the dishwasher each day, then dried it in the UV disinfecting powers of the sun, and it's held up beautifully. The texture is just right to scrub off old food, but soft and comfortable in my hand.
This bar works very well. I keep it on a soap saver and use my bamboo scrub brush!
I love everything about the way Bestowed Essentials ships their products. It always uses the least materials as possible (even shredded paper for protecting content! Genius!) Inspiring. EVERY company should consider the impact of carbon emissions in EVERYTHING they make and transport like this. Thank you!
These samples actually have a quite decent size. You can tell the texture, smell, and feel of the soap well with this. It got me excited about purchasing other soaps. My favorites are Lemon Poppyseed which is gently exfoliating, and Turmeric Calendula which helps my scars.
I wanted an all purpose kitchen And garden hand soap. This lathers nicely and the lemon is perfect. As a natural product, be sure to use a soap saver because it will get soft.
The only way I want to buy hand soap going forward, scrappy soap is a great economical choice if you do not have sensitivities. Smells great, and I love the package-free element as well.
I learned of Bestowed Essentials and Hippie Haven on the Vegetarian Zen podcast, and I’m so glad I did. I have already placed two orders, this soap being in my first. The packaging for the order is minimal and brilliantly thought out. The soap itself is glorious. It is moisturizing without being too much, long-lasting, great for my sensitive skin, and ahhh the gentle eucalyptus scent! It is one of my very favorite scents. Don’t worry that it will leave you smelling of Vap-o-Rub, it is much milder and more elegant than that. It is just a hint, and really lovely. I am now a loyal customer, and fervently wishing I could open an outpost on the Northern California coast! ❤️
Creamy lather, gentle cleanser and a nice light scent; fragrant, not medicinal. Will buy again. Thanks for the great customer service and all the efforts you ladies make.
Love the woodsy scent and the lather! Great soap!
I got the one without baking soda (the grapefruit one) and I love it! The smell was strong at first but it has grown on me...family not so much but it’s my body so ;) I use another natural brand along with this one. I usually use this when I’m going out and don’t want to put the other on with my fingers or if it’s going to be a sweatier day. I’ve noticed that this deodorant masks my smell very well and much better than my other one. While I do still sweat a lot with it (I’m sweater) like I said, it covers well. I also love how you can use it like regular deodorant and it is compostable! Definitely would recommend!
These are such an awesome and easy replacement for cotton pads! They come clean and hold up in the wash, too. Definitely recommend!
I was most excited to find sunscreen in jar form. This one is pretty good but I haven’t tested it in water yet, just while hiking. It does not leave a white cast.
I ordered 24 of these. They were packaged nicely and arrived in one piece. Support these ladies, they’re doing a great job!
Cute and sturdy! Happy with the purchase!
We love your scrappy soap! We do a lot of yard work and gardening. It cleans dirty hands and fingernails so very well and moisturizing too. Appreciate the savings by buying the scrappy soap, every bar is different. The curbside pickup was great and order was ready so fast. Love your little kraft bags that are reusable. All of you gals are doing a great job and appreciate your caring in so many ways. Kindness matters, you spread joy! 💜💕💜
I love these bags! Easy to use, sturdy, and cute! I love how easy they are to wash and dry. Will definitely buy more!
Amazing!! Love this company so much.
Amazing inside and out! The orange vanilla smell gets us everytime and leaves us feeling satisfied, definitely recommend
So good, so useful!!
Love it. Exactly what I was looking for to replace my Castile bars. I am happy to have found a palm oil free and package free option that will last a long time.
I actually got this for my pizza stone (which I use for more than just pizza) and it works perfectly! I don't wash my stone often so it's nice to use the scraper to get any pieces of food and crumbs off.
I bought three of these recycled glass jars for putting homemade vegan mayo and chipotle in and they work wonderfully! They are easy to clean and I can feel good about myself for not putting more waste into our environment when using them! ;-) the glass is thick too so it doesn't feel like it'll break anytime soon.
I love this soap! It cleans, exfoliates, moisturizers, and smells nice without being overwhelming.
I have used this face mask for a few weeks now, and my skin hasn't felt/looked better! Definitely worth giving a try!
I love the string tote bag, it’s great quality and stretches to an incredible size! Perfect for produce
I love this little scrubber. Fits in my hand perfectly and takes off dried food like a champ! I even scrubbed dried paint off my hands and arms!
This is a really nice cloth that somewhat resembles the texture of paper towel. Cleans dishes really well and is nice and sturdy! I love it!
I absolutely love this toner. I have dry, sensitive, red, sometimes acne-prone skin and this is hands-down my favorite toner. I initially found this company because I am a sustainability supporter and do my best to only purchase products that are environmentally-friendly - now I'm SOLD. One bottle has lasted me well over 70 days of daily use.
I have absolutely seen my skin tone even out, and it is less red and inflamed. I also use this toner as an acne spot treatment and have seen amazing results from that. I don't have enough great things to say. TRY THIS TONER!
We really loved this soap. Great scent, and good lather. We will definitely be purchasing more in the future.
Love the scent, it makes my whole bathroom lovely! Leaves hands clean without drying out skin
I love these toothbrushes. First, the bristles last well. Second, there is no plastic packaging which is awesome. And I like that I am shopping local and getting a great product!
I purchased the feelings woodsy one and it has been great. Easy to apply, smells good and it lasts.
I purchased the vanilla/grapefruit and absolutely love the scent. It's so nice to have a natural deodorant that works all day!
