Much as I love a luxury shower gel, I’m very aware that it literally ends up down the drain. If I’m buying for my family, I tend to hover around the not absolute basic but not expensive mark, so I was pleased to find the Unilever owned Love Beauty And Planet brand in my local supermarket.
This is Unilever’s showcase brand for sustainability and environmental responsibility. All ingredients are ethically sourced in vegan formulas and packaging that is fully recyclable. What’s more unusual about Love Beauty And Planet is their transparency about environmental impact; specifically their carbon footprint, which they aim to reduce by 20% by next year. Love Beauty And Planet also contributes to a Carbon Tax Fund so whatever footprints they place during manufacturing they offset by donating to programmes that reduce emissions.
So, the credentials are good, but is the shower gel? Actually, for £5.99 for 500ml, I think so. The fragrance is pleasant enough but quite mild and in terms of washing – nothing to complain about. It didn’t dry out my skin, the lather was decent without being sumptuous and I quite like the fact that the liquid has a kind of earthy look to it rather than being sparkling clear. I found mine in Tesco but I know that it’s stocked in Superdrug so it shouldn’t be hard to find.
