I recently placed my first order with Haus of Gloi. In case you've not yet had the pleasure of their products they are US based brand run by hubbie and wife duo Matt & Britton who create their own vegan bath, body and perfume products. A quick scan of their website will show you that most of their products have a 'foody' theme based on comforting fragrances and ingredients.
Check out the gorgeous labels!
The first item I picked was a Mango Sticky Rice whipped soap which is a gorgeous rich body cleanser with coconut and sesame seed. It lathers really well and leaves your skin baby soft and gently scented. I've also been using it as a 'luxury' shave gel - lucky old leg hairs! I think this post was about $6...I can't check the exact price as its no longer available on their site. Many of their lines are limited edition as they're made from a batch of fragrance & once its gone its gone - there are plenty of other goodies to choose from but be quick with your orders if you see something you like!
Next up is Vice bubbling scrub which was $3.50 for a 2oz pot which they also refer to as a sample size. This is a sugar based scrub and although its not recommended for use on your face it gives quite a gentle level of exfoliation. Despite this not being the most scrubbiest scrub I've every tried the scent is INCREDIBLE. The official Haus of Gloi description reads...
"Steam billows rolling off a vessel of fresh made Turkish coffee, marshmallow goo tainted by graham cracker crumbs, toasted hazelnuts and blanketed in black chocolate"
...and it smells exactly how you'd imagine these ingredients would. Or if your imagination needs a hand, like a steaming mug of Starbucks coffee with caramel AND hazlenut syrup shots, marshmallows melted on the top and a chocolate stirrer to finish it off! .
As well as the two products I ordered they also popped into my delivery a sample vial of their Satyr perfume which a scrummy blend of vanilla and blood orange and a little handwritten thank you card (got to love the personal touch of a small independant company!)
So not surprisngly I can confirm that my first experience of Haus of Gloi has been an awesome one - fabulous, unique beauty products, gorgeous packaging and great customer service. I love!
