Yes, and I really like their rose oil hand cream range. We also use their body washes.
I do prefer Lush though, seems more natural, but costs about the same.

Their Aloe Vera body butter is absolutely awesome for sunburned skin - or any skin that needs soothing.

If you keep it in the fridge its even better.

I found it overpriced for what it is - the quality is just a notch above stuff you can buy in a supermarket. Their body butters advertise wonderful ingredients but the first two ingredients on the list are always water and sunflower oil.

They use parabens as preservatives. Its a shame, cos their body butters smell wonderful.

For my money, I buy the pure stuff in bulk from Aussie Soap Supplies

I have 2 kilos (I know, I know !) of organic shea scented with vanilla sitting in my fridge biggrin.gif

I don't go there, because their labelling of allergens is terrible.  Only half their products are labelled as containing (or traces) of tree nuts, but it is in pretty much any product.  A friend has had similar issues with other allergens.

The parabens they use in everything give me eczema.

I've recently started using the Yes to (cucucmbers) range from coles and priceline. Good value ($10 cleanser, $20 moisturiser, $18 for a large shampoo).

Body Shop smells divine, but I've found the better things smell, the more likely I am to react to it sad.gif

I use the green Organic Care shampoo & conditioner from the supermarket - smells gorgeous and no nasties. But it DOES have 'cones in it.

I've just found a fabulous Argan Oil Organic shampoo & conditioner on iHerb for a very reasonable price, which doesn't have 'cones in it, but my hair isn't as smooth. It nourishes my hair more, but my ends feel rougher IYKWIM ? I have very long hair, so am using them turn and turn about - I use the Organic Care when I know I'm going to go swimming to get that extra protection

I swear by their Seaweed facial lotion - I have skin on the oily side and it's perfect for me. I mostly prefer Lush but a lot of their mosturisers are too greasy for me.
