BodyCare

Howdy! I’ve recently herd of Moogoo through my fellow Aussie mates. I did a lot of research on the company and realize that their products can be bought locally in stores! There are a few stores that carry Moogoo products, I will get into that at the end of the post. πŸ˜‰ 

I was sent a few of their products, together with some from their sister makeup company – Dusty Girls. After trying out a few of their products, I literally went on their website and made a huge order!! Just wanna say that half of the products from the Moogoo/Dusty Girls trilogy posts were purchased by me and reviews are based on how I truly feel about the product. 

Let’s get started!! I am going to review the Moogoo Haircare products today. 

  

HOLY COW (no pun intended) 

I am not exaggerating or anything but I think I have found my holy grail shampoo and conditioner! Let me start off by saying that I will continue to repurchase this duo until I have found something better, which will not be anytime soon. 😜
This was first made for a family member who had a scalp so itchy they went to bed with olive oil and cling wrap around their head. It took 6 months of trialling until we banished the cling wrap to the kitchen for good.

Our Scalp Friendly Milk Shampoo has now become one of our best selling products. Read our ‘We got mail” page to see how much it has helped people with scalp problems. We use natural ingredients combined with ingredients to control the micro-flora of the scalp that can cause scalp problems for many adults and children. Fragrance Free. pH BAlanced. Natural Cleansers.

  

 One of the many things I love about their company is that they are extremely transparent with their ingredients. All their ingredients are natural and very beneficial for your hair. They do not use SLS, however I find that the milk shampoo lathers like a dream! All you need is a small amount and it lathers and cleans your hair really thoroughly. It is because of the glucose and coconut derived cleansers! They also added a canola derived detangler and a phthalate free fragrant. I find this shampoo rather clarifying. I wouldn’t say VERY, but it does a pretty good job in cleansing and preventing build ups! 

  
They not only do not add SLS to their shampoo, they also do not add silicones into their conditioner! “Cream Conditioner” – initially when I heard of the name, I was expecting it to be a thick cream that might weigh my hair down. Not gonna lie, I had doubts.  Just a little! But hey, I was wrong. It proved my wrong! It was thin in consistency. It wasn’t thick at all. Not only that, it conditions really well, just like my previous conventional conditioners that had nasties in them. Except that this is all natural, no nasties! 🌿 

So what’s in the conditioner that makes it conditions so well? Jojoba oil, olive oil, allantoin, a canola based detangler again and as well as hydrolized milk protein!

Moogoo and dusty girls add milk protein to most of their products. Just because they have pictures of cute cows on their products, doesn’t mean they include milk in their products! Don’t be confused between milk and milk protein. Milk cannot be kept and it would be just wrong to include them in any of your beauty products as they will turn bad. Really bad. πŸ˜• but of course, they are good to take in orally!

Both the cream conditioner and milk shampoo smells like cream. Which I love! I love sweet smelling cream in my products.

  
The last product from their Haircare line I would be reviewing would be their Protein Shot Leave in Conditioner!  Moogoo is constantly experimenting and creating new products to add to their line. One of the latest edition added is this product! I think it was only launched this year, very recent. I tried to find reviews of this product online but there wasn’t a lot of them. Hence, here I am! Enlightening more people about this amazing product existence. πŸ˜‚ I add just a small amount of it and work it through my hair when it’s damp after showering. It is a relatively thick cream, therefore you only need a tiny bit. Even if you have thick hair like mine. I would not recommend applying this leave in conditioner to your hair when it’s dry as it has quite a thick consistency. Nevertheless, it works amazingly fine on damp hair. Once my hair dries, it feels very smooth and detangled. (I did not use a comb or brush when it’s wet) This product has a sweet berry scent,  it’s not a very strong and it definitely does not linger. 

A few of the many great ingredients in this product are milk protein, olive oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E! No silicones spotted as well πŸ™‚ 

From their main website, the shampoo and conditioner costs AUD17.5 and they both come in a huge 500ml pump bottle which will most probably last me 6 months. (I wash my hair 2-3 times a week) 

The protein shot leave in conditioner costs AUD14.5 and it comes in a 100ml air tight pump bottle. 

Oh oh!! Because I’m from Singapore, I do not have to pay taxes and they will be deducted at the check out page. πŸ™‚

I will be reviewing 3 products from their amazing Skincare line and the Jasmine Body Oil from their Body Care line.

Let me start off with their most popular product: SOAPS.
IMG_3753

French Pink Clay is a very gentle clay known for drawing out impurities without drying your skin. This is a truly beautifying and skin softening face and body soap. This is a pretty moisturising and gentle soap which is great for sensitive and dry skin! It is also safe for use on both the body and face, as with all Herbivore Botanicals soaps.This smells really citrusy and floral, great for mornings to wake you up a little! The key ingredients to this soap are French Pink Clay, Geranium Essential Oil, Blood Orange Essential Oil. This ingredients help to detoxify the skin, improve its’ elasticity and prevent bacteria from developing on sores!
This soap retails for USD10(4oz).

Bamboo Charcoal has been used for centuries in the East. The Japanese use it regularly for everything from filtering and purifying drinking water to brushing their teeth. When used in skin care, activated Bamboo Charcoal does wonders to deeply cleanse and detoxify.
Personally for me, I’ve been liking this soap a lot for when I am having outbreaks. This really helps to get all the gunk out of my face at the end of the day, and makes it feel really skin. It is great for oily to combination skin! This is the perfect soap for me as it contains Bamboo Charcoal, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Bergamot essential oil and many more natural ingredients. Tea tree oil especially, is amazing as it kills bacteria and helps fight acne. This soap retails for USD10(4oz).

Balancing Toner
This 100% Natural Skin Toning Elixir is created to restore pH balance to combination or oily skin after cleansing. It is great for prepping the skin before moisturiser. This toner will ensure that your skin absorbs all the moisture and goodness it can out of your moisturiser. It also ensures that no residue is left behind even after cleansing! The key ingredients to this are Witch Hazel, Aloe Vera and Neroli Oil. These ingredients are very calming and helps to reduce inflammation and maintain the right moisture and oil balance in the skin.
This retails for USD24 (4oz) glass spray bottle.

Jasmine Body Oil
Named for the precious Jasmine Sambac and Egyptian Jasmine oils that it contains, the Jasmine Body Oil is a blend of pure, natural botanical oils for glowing + hydrated skin with an intoxicating scent.
This is my absolute favourite product from their line! I have never tried a body oil before as I’m afraid that it might leave a residue behind in this humid weather. This product has really changed my opinion on that and I have came to really love body oils and cannot wait to try more. Upon application, it makes my skin feel soft and silky and soaks right in. It doesn’t leave any residue, not even on my hands which is great. The downside of this product however, is that it’s rather thin. Hence, I need more pumps than my usual body products to apply. With that being said, this body oil contains Camellia Flower Oil, Grapeseed oil, Jasmine Sambac oil etc. This ingredients contains Omega fatty acids which improves skin elasticity and enhance its’ natural glow. This body oil most definitely smells just like Jasmine tea which many around me love! This retails for USD26(2oz) and USD44(4oz).

That’s it for my review! I really love how this tiny company has expanded over the years and have now become really known in the Green Beauty world. Do let me know if you have tried any of their products before and what you think of them!
