REVIEW -- Surya Brasil Sapien Women Collection



Good morning, everyone! Today I have a review of Surya Brasil's new Sapien Women bath collection. If you remember, I did a review of their lip balms back in January and loved them! Here are my thoughts on these new products...
After describing the scent which all of the products share, I'm just going to take the products one by one and tell you about them individually. I think that will be easiest!

The scent is a very light, pleasant orange creamsicle scent. If you're familiar with an Orange Julius, the products smell almost identical to that!

SHOWER GEL
  • Eco-friendly and Vegan.
  • Natural and rich in Amazonian ingredients like:
    • Pracaxi Oil
    • Aloe Vera juice
    • Cocount & Mango Essential Oils
    • Amaranth Protein, and
    • Vitamin E
  • Free of BHT, EDTA, Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, and Synthetic Fragrances.
  • 98.8% of the total ingredients are of natural origin and 12.09% are from organic farming.
  • 10.14 fl oz / 300ml, retails for $21.50.
I found the Shower Gel to have a nice lather, and it left my skin feeling clean and soft. I also used it for bubble bath and it gave a decent amount of light bubbles, but they didn't last very long.

BODY SCRUB
  • Made with organic Amazonian ingredients:
    • Coconut bark and Organic Buriti are 100% natural exfoliants.
    • Amazonian White Clay enhances the exfoliation power.
    • A high concentration of organic Aloe Vera juice provides intense hydration.
    • Also contains Coconut & Mango Essential Oils.
  • Free of BHT, EDTA, Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, and Synthetic Fragrances.
  • 98.80% of the total ingredients are from natural origins, and 23.27% are from organic farming.
  • 10.14 fl oz / 300 ml, retails for $28.50.
The body scrub is very gentle, and I tend to like a grittier scrub. It still left my skin feeling smooth and polished, but I wish it was a little coarser. 

SHAVE GEL

  • Eco-friendly and Vegan.
  • Contains exotic organic Amazonian ingredients like:
    • Cupuaçu Butter
    • Pracaxi Oil
    • Macadamia Oil
    • Vitamin E
    • Coconut & Mango Essential Oils
    • Organic Aloe Vera juice, and
    • Vegetable Glycerin
  • Free from BHT, EDTA, Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, and Synthetic Fragrances.
  • 98.80% of the total ingredients are of natural origins, and 13.62% are from organic farming.
  • 6.76 fl oz / 200 ml, retails for $17.
The Shave Gel was the absolute standout of this collection for me! It gives the closest shave EVER and leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth! It's similar to using conditioner to shave with, except this rinses out of my razor cleanly and doesn't gunk up in it or leave buildup or a weird residue behind.

BODY MOISTURIZER
  • Eco-friendly and Vegan.
  • Contains Organic Amazonian ingredients:
    • Cupuaçu and Murumuru Butters
    • Pracaxi and Açai Oils
    • Amaranth Protein
    • Vitamin E
    • Aloe Vera juice, and
    • Coconut & Mango Essential Oils
  • Free from BHT, EDTA, Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, and Synthetic Fragrances.
  • 98.88% of the total ingredients are from natural origins, and 18.88% are from organic farming.
  • 6.76 fl oz / 200 ml, retails for $23.50.
The Body Moisturizer provides a light, non-greasy layer of moisture that absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. 

FACIAL SCRUB
  • Made with Organic Amazonian ingredients:
    • Coconut Bark and Organic Buriti are 100% natural exfoliants which remove dead skin cells and impurities.
    • Coconut & Mango Essential Oils.
  • No Ethyl Alcohol, Sulfates, or Silicone.
  • Free from BHT, EDTA, Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, and Synthetic Fragrances.
  • 98.88% of the total ingredients are of natural origins, and 13.34% are from organic farming.
  • 3.38 fl oz / 100 ml, retails for $16.99.
The Facial Scrub has a very similar consistency to the Body Scrub. It's very gentle, and I wanted it to be a bit more coarse. However, if you have very sensitive or delicate skin, I think the gentleness of this scrub would be a perfect match for you. I did notice that it made my face extremely oily the morning after each use, but I did not have an increase in breakouts while testing it.
I think the Surya Brasil Sapien Women Collection is a great line if you're interested in using natural, vegan, and eco-friendly products. The quality is good, but there were some I enjoyed more than others. The Sapien Women line is available for purchase at the Surya Brasil website. Overall, I'm giving the collection 3.5 out of 5 stars!


RATING: 3.5 out of 5 STARS
