I’ve been using a lot of tea tree lately, and this voxbox was surprisingly in sync with my current obsession: hair everything and tea tree.
I’ll start with the hand wash.
13.5 FL OZ – 400 ml. For hand washes, this is on the bigger size.
Ethical and nature-friendly.
Simply pump, lather, and rinse.
The scent is pretty strong with this one. It’s a grassy and minty scent that lingers on your skin long after you use it, mostly tea tree with a hint of lemongrass. If you enjoy the smell of tea tree, this will be a pleasant experience.
The product is a clear slippery gel that lathers gently when you mix it with water.
It does not lather as much as some other sulfate-based hand washes, but still left my hands squeaky-clean. Wasn’t too drying, despite the tea tree. I suspect the coconut oil cancels out the dryness of tea tree to some degree.
I placed this at my kitchen sink because 1) This doesn’t leave my hands dry. 2) The strong scent helps cancel out any other scent that may linger on my hands when cooking food. 3) Hefty size. I wash my hands a lot at the kitchen sink.
Now the hair oil. This one’s vetiver & jojoba.
4 FL OZ – 118ml. A decent amount that would last me through the winter.
Ingredients list & directions. As is the case with the hand wash, there are a lot of plant-based ingredients.
You can either use this as a deep treatment prior to washing your hair or as a styling agent on dry or wet hair.
The oil is clear and rather runny. It feels lighter than most hair oils I’ve used.
Compared to something like Moroccanoil Oil Treatment, this is a lighter, less scented version.
(Left is before, right is after I applied the hair oil)
The oil weighs my hair down just enough to straighten and work out the knots. I concentrated on the lower region of my hair because it’s dryer, and also my oily-to-begin-with scalp doesn’t take to oil very kindly. I’d say this is a product that even someone with an oily scalp can use.
My hair’s been going to the way of a pudding (with the light dye on the bottom and darker roots = syrup on top, mostly because I can’t be bothered to keep dying it) and this visual is exaggerated by applying the oil. Brings out the color more. Think eyeshadow primer.
The scent, unlike with the hand wash, dissipates after a certain amount of time.
Overall, solid products.
I might replace my Moroccanoil with this oil infusion because my scalp gets oily easily and it’s better to go lighter than heavier in my case.
