As you know, I have been on a clean beauty journey since January and it has been so great learning about new brands that are creating products using real quality ingredients that are plant-based and free of sulfates and other toxins. It has really changed my whole thought process in terms of what products to purchase and try because I have to be very diligent in making sure the quality is up to the new standards I have set for myself. I am so surprised by the options out there, I have been able to find everything that I used to use in a non-toxic form that works just as well! Honestly, I think because the big brands have the budget to make commercials and pay influencers to create brand awareness so that is all we really see on social media and in turn on the shelves in stores. But there are so many more amazing companies out there doing great things with the best ingredients.
The one thing I had not looked into was finding a signature perfume for myself. That’s because I had not found a scent that I love enough to wear every day, they were too strong and always gave me headaches throughout the day. Curie reached out to me and introduced their products and I was super curious to see what it was all about. I couldn’t decide on what to order so I went with the discovery kit to try out an array of products. The kit comes with a travel size shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand & body lotion and all 5 of their perfume samples.
I have to share a few things that make Curie a unique and amazing company because it is pretty impressive! They use no toxic chemicals or fillers, they also eliminated the middleman so their prices as low as possible. They deliver straight to your door and have a subscription option that saves up to 20% when signing up! Lastly, they use fewer but better ingredients, they use 15 ingredients compared to 29 that a luxury competitor would use or 70 that are in the mass market products.
I have been testing out the products for a few weeks now and I have been loving them! The shampoo and conditioner make my hair so soft, because of the plant-based ingredients they do not foam up like other products but they work just as well! Same goes for the body wash but it goes on so smoothly and rinses just fine! The hand and body lotion makes my skin buttery soft, I am obsessed! Lastly, I have been testing out all of the different fragrance options, I am ecstatic to report that I have not had any headaches due to wearing them and they last all day long, I am so excited about it! All of these products can be put in your carry on and used during travel which is so convenient, you can even refill the fragrance testers to always have with you in your purse! Here are my thoughts on the 5 scents:
- Socaire – Woodsy and smells amazing, subtle but lasts throughout the day.
- Bella Flor – Lemony and floral. Not overwhelming but beautiful
- Quilcene – stronger scent but smells really good. Love the depth of it.
- Chisos – not for me.
- Gaucho – not for me.
