My Thoughts:

I’ve been able to review and experience the Seaweed Bath Company before, and it’s neat for my journey through the world of natural products to circle back around to this brand again. They’re a company that is pretty conscientious about their ingredients (above average) and their products perform very well.

In my dreams, my very own product line would be chock full of peppermint–in every single product. So needless to say, I love the refreshing effect of this shampoo + conditioner combo. The shampoo is perfectly clarifying while still leaving a nice shine throughout my hair. Performance-wise, the conditioner is pretty darn perfect. It’s creamy and rich & a little goes a long way, even in my tangly, often sweaty hair.

This body cream consists of the same eucalyptus + peppermint scents that the hair products do, and I just love it. It wakes up your senses to rub this cream all over your body. It absorbs into the skin well, provides a good amount of moisture and leaves skin smelling clean and minty.

If I could improve anything with these products, I would clean up the ingredient list just a bit. The ingredients are pretty good, but they are not all organic and some of them are clearly added for texture, consistency & shelf stability. My experience with hair products is that it is VERY hard to find the perfect marriage of performance and top-notch ingredients. The Seaweed Bath company does a good job of creating some above average products whose ingredients are plant derived and cleaner than most hair products you’ll find.

This brand is very accessible; I’ve seen them at Sprout’s Farmers Market, Whole Foods, Natural Grocers and other smaller health food retailers. You can also find them online on numerous healthy product meccas like Iherb.com, Vitacost.com and even Amazon.com.

My Thoughts:

I am fortunate that I do not get sick often. It’s been quite a while since something was ailing me so badly that I needed to take cough syrup or apply a vapor rub. Though I don’t find myself needing these products often, I love that there are organic options available for me to look to when needed.

Also, for those with kids, it’s hard to accurately describe the peace of mind it gives you to know that what you’re using with your children is free of crummy ingredients and is actually good for their little growing bodies.

I’m pretty psyched at the ultra clean ingredient list of the cough syrup. The obvious improvement I’d make with the vapor rub is to make the ingredients organic. If you’re going to commit to using natural ingredients like essential oils, I figure you may as well use the best. Know that is my opinion with a very discerning eye. These products are so incredibly far ahead of what you typically find in the drug store, there is truly no comparison.

Other drug store products for treating the same symptoms are potentially doing more harm than good, while these Maty’s products are healing effectively by means of organic, plant-derived ingredients.

I tried these products not needing them. In other words, I was sick and needing relief–so I cannot fully comment on the effectiveness of them alleviating discomfort and pain. But, I did find the cough syrup to be very calming & soothing after drinking it. It also has good stay power as far as keeping your throat coated. The honey flavor really tastes nice and isn’t hard to palate.

I love what the vapor rub does. I could see myself using this just to feel revived, awakened and rejuvenated. The minty, fresh aroma and experience of the eucalyptus, peppermint and wintergreen trio is absolutely intoxicating. It really opens up your airways and even livens up your eyes and makes you look more awake.
