Avalon Organics! ~Giveaway

Avalon Organics is a skin, hair and bath and body care company. (Did you see how I rhymed that?) The focus for their products surrounds five core values – pure, true, kind, safe, and grow. In other words, they use pure ingredients, they’re transparent about their formulas, they are vegan and cruelty-free, they believe in sustainability and environmentalism and they are always working on innovation. Sounds like a company I could get behind! They are based out of the US but are no available in Canada!

I was sent five of their products. First up is their Clarifying Lemon Shampoo and Conditioner. Now, Avalon uses no synthetic fragrances or colours, choosing instead to use essential oils. And let me tell you, it didn’t take me long to recognize that there was definitely lemon oil in this shampoo and conditioner! The scents are much more “potent” without being “chemical-ly”! This particular shampoo actually containers several essential oils – Lemon, Lime, Orange, Grapefruit plus some other extracts like Chamomilla and Calendula! I do like it when companies find a way to include what the earth has offered us into their products! This shampoo lathers up nicely and so far has worked well on my hair. My oldest daughter quite likes it because it’s lemon! The conditioner also works well for me, though I do feel I need a bit more of it than I do of other brands. I find the scent is milder in the conditioner, which is just fine by me! They also have several other shampoos and conditioners. There are ones like Thickening, Anti-Dandruff, and Scalp Normalizing. Then there’s Strengthening Peppermint, Nourishing Lavender and Volumizing Rosemary. In total, they have ten variations – so there will be one you like!

The next item I was sent is their Nourishing Lavender Lotion. Now, I didn’t used to like the scent of lavender, but then I got a better quality lavender essential oil and it’s now part of my first aid kit in the cupboard and I’ve grown to like it more! It’s still not my favorite scent but I definitely have a greater appreciation for it now! I quite like this lotion – I don’t find it greasy and it works in quickly and smoothly. My only complaint, which actually doesn’t relate to the lotion but instead to the bottle, so that I wish the squirt bottle manufacturers would make a squirt bottle that has about a quarter of the squirt capacity! With the exception of when I’m applying lotion to my legs, when I want lotion for my hands I don’t need anywhere near a full squirt – or I will be applying it to my legs as well in order to use it all up! And when you have kids, they definitely don’t need a full squirt, particularly of hand soap, so end up using way too much since they don’t have the capability (or desire, haha!) to only push the squirter down part way!

Rosemary Bath and Shower Gel is another item I was sent. This one is my least favorite of all the products. And to be honest, it certainly isn’t because of how it works! It lathers up great and works well, but for me, the scent puts me in the kitchen, not the shower! Haha! This is a totally personal preference and I’m sure there are loads of people out there who would thoroughly enjoy the rosemary ! If I was to pick a different scent among their bath line, I would likely choose their Cucumber! Funny, that should put me in the kitchen too, shouldn’t it!?

The last item I was sent was their Revitalizing Peppermint Hand Soap. This is my favorite product! I love the fresh peppermint scent (though again a full squirt is too much!) and it cleans well. I don’t find the scent lingers too long with any of these products, which is great for those that are more sensitive to scents. However, I love the clean and fresh scent that this leaves behind!

Avalon also has a skin care line. They have a whole slew of products here, from cleansers and toners to moisturizers and treatments to intense defense and wrinkle therapy! Pretty much any problem you want to target, there’s a product for it! I’m thinking I need to start trying the wrinkle therapy line! Haha!

If you’d like to try out the Avalon Organics line for yourself, you can find them locally at Loblaws, Whole Food Markets, London Drugs, Safeway and Sobeys, as well as on Well.ca! According to Well.ca, which carries pretty much their full line of products, the prices range from $8.99 for the hand soaps to $29.99 for Wrinkle Defense Serum. I see that you can actually get some of their shampoos and conditioners in the 946 mL size as well!

If you’d like to look at their products more, you can head over to the Avalon Organics website. Or you can follow them on Facebook to keep up with the latest and greatest news!
