Hello Darlings! I’m so excited to share some really fun products I’ve been using with you today. The reason I’m so excited is that not only do they perform really well, but they are environmentally friendly too! When Plaine Products reached out to me to see if I’d like to review their line of refillable, reusable hair and body care, I jumped on the opportunity! Plaine Products was started with the idea in mind to help eliminate single use plastics from your hair and body care shower routine. Given all that I know about how detrimental single use plastic is to the environment; this immediately called my name.
Whether you believe in global warming or not, pollution of our oceans and land from single use plastics is real, and the facts are staggering. Did you know that more than 8 million tons of plastic leaks into the oceans around the world each year? Also, the ratio of plastic to plankton in the Mediterranean Sea is 1:2? The numbers are heartbreaking, and often you come to wonder how it got this way. But making small changes, like using a refillable product like these can help create larger change around the globe.

Plaine Products has created a service where you can sign up for refill bottles of each product to be sent to you as often as you like, and you ship your old empty bottles back to the company free of charge so that they can clean and re-purpose them for new product! How amazing is that? The shampoo, conditioner, and body wash that are available from Plaine Products are all vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate free, non-gmo, biodegradable, and paraben free. One thing I love about Plaine Products is that you can order the products as a set of 3, which is what I tried out; a set of two, or individually. So you can choose what best caters to your needs at the moment.
All of the products from Plaine Products have the same scent, which is Rosemary Mint Vanilla. I really love this scent; I think its perfect for women or men and kids would like it too! It’s the right balance of sweet and earthy, and just smells to me like spa. Who doesn’t want every shower to feel like a spa day? I know I do. The shampoo and conditioner are both safe for color treated hair as well, which was very important to me since I color my hair regularly. As you will see me explain in my Youtube video, I think the product cleans my hair very well, doesn’t create buildup or a dry feeling after use, and the conditioner is a great regular moisturizer for your strands. I think the subscription service works incredibly well for the shampoo and conditioner, as you can decide based on the length of your hair and how often you wash it how frequently you need a refill. You can choose between 2, 3, or 4 month intervals for your refill. This is also good if you tend to switch between products. Or, you can buy one, wait until it’s almost empty, and then order your refill bottle. Each product is normally $30.00, but if you order a pair or the set of three, you do get a discount! Here is a link to more information regarding how the refill service works.
How Does it Work?
The body wash has the same scent as the shampoo and conditioner, which I love. I think they took careful consideration in making a scent that isn’t feminine or masculine so that anyone could use it. The body was is also sulfate free, which is great if you have sensitive skin like I do. Sulfates are traditionally used to make body washes and soaps lather up and get foamy. However, they can tend to be irritating and drying on the skin. Even though this body wash doesn’t have sulfates, it still gets soapy and makes you feel squeaky clean! Plus you really can’t beat the refreshing mint scent. Also, the shampoo and body wash both are clear in color, so it makes me happy knowing there aren’t any dyes added to the product. Some other key ingredients to note are: Organic Aloe Leaf Juice, Papaya and Pineapple Pulp Extracts, Vitamin E Complex, Jojoba Beads and more. I love that all three products are packed with nourishing ingredients that are good for your skin and hair as well!

Hope you guys enjoyed this review of Plaine Products, and I hope you are inspired to go on the journey of using less plastic in your life and helping protect our oceans! I know that it can seem daunting to change habits overnight, but a little bit goes a long way. No one is perfect, we all make decisions as consumers that we feel are right for us or our families, but making small changes leads to bigger ripples of change around the world. Just remember that!
Until next time –
