Ecooking Spring Releases - Vegan and sustainable beauty + Giveaway

A brand that has featured on my blog a good few times now is the Danish brand, Ecooking, a brand that started on the kitchen table of the founder Tina S√łgaard, to one that is now widely available online. I was very kindly gifted some of the new Ecooking Spring releases and a few extra for one of you for yourself!
Ecooking Spring Releases - Vegan and sustainable beauty + Giveaway
The first product out of my box is the  Hand Soap With Scrub: Described as being "A hand soap with scrub that cleanses the skin and removes dead skin cells" it has a scent of citrus, Violet and White Pepper and smells absolutely delightful. Using Pumice, which if you didn't know, is a stone formed through volcanic eruptions and it is the fine granulate of natural lava stones exfoliates your skin. You will also find Amino acids which help the skin by boosting collagen production, skin elasticity and moisture regeneration. Cucumber Extract which is rich in amino acids, proteins and vitamin C. Aloe Vera for its calming and soothing properties and then the most interesting ingredient for me which is Volcanic Sand. Volcanic sand is used because it is enriched with thermal water and is rich in magnesium, and silica and calcium have rebalancing, cleansing and regenerating properties.

On the skin, the soap is one which doesn't dry out your hands, even though it is a hand scrub. Instead, given the number of times I am sure we are all washing and sanitizing our hands right now, this is surprisingly soothing.  As well as using on your hands, this product can also be used on your body and feet.

I have always been quite honest in that there is very few Micellar Waters that I actually like. From Ecooking they have released a Micellar Water and I have been using it for the last few weeks.  Described as being "An all-in-one face wash that efficiently removes dirt, make-up and eye make-up without drying out your skin" and it contains Aloe Leaf and Cucumber, which again are calming and soothing on the skin and then we have Vitamin C which helps to brighten the skin.

This Micellar Water comes as a spray, so to use it, there is a choice of spraying it directly onto your skin or onto your cotton wool pad, depending on your preference. For me, I have tried both options and much prefer to spray onto a cotton wool pad so that I have more control over removing my makeup. Impressively, this product removes everything in its path, including mascara, which is an added bonus if you are running low on eye makeup remover and because it is so gentle on the skin, it doesn't sting and nor is it drying.

If you like a good Body Scrub, then this too was a Spring release and it is a product I have loved using. Using natural Sicilian salt to remove the dead skin cells and exfoliate the skin it also includes Sunflower oil, argan oil, shea butter & almond oil as well as natural kukui oil which together add intensive moisture and in turn helps to keep your skin smooth and soft. The final inclusion is Natural vitamin E which is a strong antioxidant which protects against free radicals and adds moisture.

This scrub is designed to be used once a week when showering and it can be used from neck to toes. I like that this scrub isn't overly abrasive on my skin, though applying a little pressure on those areas which need a little more attention, you can feel the salt on the skin.

When it comes to home tanning, it is not something I ever do, mainly through fear of leaving the house looking like an Oompa Loompa as I have a very pale skin tone. From Ecooking they have two tanning products.  The first is a Self Tanning Mousse and it is described as being "a fragrance-free and easy to apply, and it gives your skin a fantastic glow".  This tan contains hyaluronic acid, glycerin and cucumber which all work to ensure your skin is kept hydrated and then the main ingredient is DHA and it is this ingredient which is what gives the skin the tan colour and if you didn't know, DHA is derived from sugar beet and sugar cane.   The second self-tanning product is the Self Tanning Drops which described a product to help you to prolong your tan and are designed to be mixed with your normal creams.  These drops contain Hyaluronic Acid which helps keep your skin moisturised after using and they are a really lightweight texture and you only need a few drops at any one time. 

The final product I have to share with you is the Cleansing Scrub which is described as being a "mild and efficient 2-in-1 cleansing product that deep-cleanses your skin and removes dead skin cells".  Designed to combine both cleansing and exfoliation, this scrub contains Glycolic Acid to aid with the cleansing of the skin, Aloe Vera and Almond Oil which calms, moisturises and helps skin cells to regenerate.  On the exfoliation side, again we have Pumice, which is also used in the Hand Scrub above. Also included is Charcoal Powder which is an active coal granulate extracted from coconut shells. The shells are crushed and sieved, and the granulate is activated through steam. Finally, we have Olivine Extract which is rich in magnesium and contributes to stimulating metabolic cell activities and it, therefore, helps dull and tired skin.

You can find Ecooking products via Look Fantastic, Beauty Bay, Feel Unique and of course the Ecooking site too.
