Win! EO (Essential Oil) Shampoo, Conditioner and Hand Sanitiser! Plus Review of Rosemary and Peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner! [Now Closed]

I’ve written about EO before and I really like this family owned and operated brand that uses only natural and certified organic ingredients. It’s a Californian company, but is available here through EO Ireland, which was launched by Catherine Murphy in June 2010.

Catherine has always been interested in natural, cruelty free products and redundancy gave her the push to turn this into a business. She came across EO while living in New York and fell for their natural scents and quality ingredients, not to mention their ethical and environmental standards. A test run at an Irish Christmas market told her she was onto a winner: she sold her entire stock within 3 hours, with people coming back for more.

EO is also a favourite of Bobbi Brown, who recently named their Peppermint Hand Sanitiser as the one product she can’t live without. It’s so pure that she even uses it as a breath spray!

I was given the spray to try out for myself, along with the Rosemary and Peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner. The shampoo is a clear gel that foams up nicely, while the conditioner is a thick, creamy off-white colour. Both smell wonderful: fresh, uplifting and the perfect morning pick me-up, although the scent doesn’t linger in the hair.
The Rosemary and Peppermint range is marketed at normal to fine hair but works wonderfully on my thick, coarse, frizz-prone locks. Interestingly, I get similar results with these as I do with products that contain silicone. My hair likes silicone for its detangling and smoothing ways, but it also makes it oilier, faster. This isn’t the case with these products, and I can see them appealing to those who don't like synthetic ingredients or are afraid of product build-up. The shampoo and conditioner are both €12.99.
The hand sanitiser, €4.99, is just lovely, too. The organic peppermint oil means this smells absolutely divine and is a real pleasure to use. It feels fresh and soothing, and contains vegetable glycerine for natural hydration.
But here, you don’t have to take my word for it. You can try them out for yourself, as the lovely people at EO have promised a shampoo and conditioner of your choice, along with a hand sanitiser spray, for one lucky reader of Fluff and Fripperies.
