Solavie Review and Giveway

Photobucket
There is a really cool company called Solavie Skin and Hair Systems that makes different beauty products. One of the products they make is a hair and body wash. This isn’t the same shampoo that you find at your local store where you are bombarded by a whole aisle of same types of shampoo with a different name the bottle. How is it different you ask? It is formulated by CLIMATE.

It is the perfect size for when you are traveling. It is small enough that it is safe for airplane travel in your carry-on. It also snaps together in a patented yin yang system. It is compact so it takes up little room in your suitcase. I hate dragging big bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash on a trip with me especially with the weight restrictions every ounce and inch counts in my suitcase. These products are ideal for traveling. Have you ever gone on vacation somewhere and the climate is completely different than where you live? I have.

When the climate changes sometimes your beauty products aren’t working the same as they did at home. The last thing you want to worry about on your vacation is frizzy and unmanageable hair and your face products that just aren’t doing the job.

Solavie Skin and Hair Systems is a unique line of beauty products. Solavie is Earth’s first Eco-Global Skin and Hair care system. The different Enviro-types of products are Plains, Desert, Shore, Mountains, Urban, and Tropics. Each of the Enviro-types have a specially formulated face wash, Face Nourish, Body Nourish, Hair and Body Wash and last but not least Hair Nourish and style. In the Tropics products for example, each contains a hand-picked selection of phyto-nutrients from hardy plants native to tropical ecosystems. These ingredients help plants survive and thrive in their place of origin, and in these formulas, offer similar protection and nourishment for skin and hair.

Here is how Solavie is great for the environment.

No outer package = zero paper waste
Compact bottle design= fewer trucks which means less gas
Double-concentrated formulas = less plastic
All natural ingredients = bio degradable
100% re-used or recycled materials = 0% Net Carbon

Here is how Solavie is helping others in the world

From & for eco-systems of the world = enviro-type®
Native plant phyto-nutrients = local indigenous sourcing
Supporting 3rd world handicrafts = socially responsible
Profits donated to sustainable charities = 0% net waste

I had the opportunity to try the Desert Enviro-Type Duo Pack which is the Desert Hair/Body Wash and Desert Hair Nourish & Style. I loved the design of the bottles. It was pretty cool the way that they snap together. I eagerly tried out both the Desert Hair/Body Wash and the Desert Hair Nourish & Style.

I thought that it smelled really good. I noticed that there wasn’t as much lather as I am used to but that is no big deal. I think extra lather dries out hair if I remember correctly. Since these products are formulated for adding moisture that would totally make sense. It rinsed out of my hair very easily. I didn’t have to spend a lot of time or water trying to get all of the hair wash out.

Then I tried the Hair Nourish & Style. It is a combination conditioner and hair gel. I thought that was an interesting combination. I decided to use it as a conditioner so I rinsed it out. My hair felt so silky when I was washing it out. After my hair dried it felt very moisturized and soft. My hair looked great and very manageable.

This is definitely a great product. Not only do you save money by not having to buy separate bottles of Shampoo, Body Wash, Conditioner and Styling Gel. It is also great for the environment and the world. What could be better?

Thank you to Solavie for the opportunity to try the Desert Duo Pack.

I have one Tropics Duo pack to give away to one of my lovely readers.

  50. According to Solavie, my enviro-type is MOUNTAIN and URBAN.

    The types are perfect for the geography in my area. Also, both of these types are loaded with natural oils which are ingredients I need for my dry hair and dry skin.

    I hope to win the hair care products. My tresses can really use this.
