I have to admit that I am not an expert in cosmetics or make up or body/hair care. Got used to write about food and this is the focus of this website most of the time. But this is also a space for all things vegan and from time to time I take time to write or review non-food products. Since we’ve opened the website to advertisers and started looking for companies to team up with us to give away vegan or vegan-friendly products to our swappers, I’ve been in contact with some amazing companies, especially from the UK. And I was extremely happy when I was given the opportunity to review JASON Natural Care Products. They were also generous enough to offer a special gift package to our readers living in the UK (check out the details of the giveaway after the review).
“Since 1959, JASON Natural Products has been the leading purveyor of pure and natural products for skin, body, hair and oral health for the whole family, giving consumers effective, environmentally-friendly alternatives to mass-produced, synthetic chemical products.”
All of their products are vegetarian and mostly vegan and they also offer a choice of products for Men and also a selection of travel sizes (have to get some of them considering the fact that we are always traveling!).
I’ve never had the chance to try JASON products while living in Ireland and it’s impossible to get them now in Italy. I was fortunate enough to get the Jason Aloe Vera 98% Gel and the Jason Family Natural Sun Block SPF45 to try and review.
Jason Aloe Vera 98% Gel has got my heart – and skin, of course. I love the fact that it’s a non-oily moisturizer. It has a light smell of Aloe Vera which doesn’t stick that much (I don’t like strong smells) and the gel really penetrates in the skin. I’ve been using it every day and it’s amazing for my tattoos (yes, I’ve got some) and also after exposure to sun. And believe me, Rome is sunny and hot already!
Talking about sunny and hot days, the Jason Sunbrellas Family Sun Block SPF45 came to our family in a perfect time. My husband and toddler have a very white and delicate skin and they can’t go out without a good sun block and I love the fact that it’s suitable for the whole family, including our 16 months kid. Its non-greasy, tear-free, water resistant formula provides great protection and it is “enriched with moisturizing Vitamin E, Shea Butter and antioxidant Green Tea Extract”. It is also PABA-free and alcohol-free. I also love its smell. It’s not that “classic” sun block smell that reminds you the smell of the beach, it’s more like a moisturizer smell and every time I pass it on my kid I can’t stop smelling him.
I’m really happy with both products and I hope that Jason will be available in Europe – and will start shipping to Europe through their online store soon. I’d be a loyal customer for sure!
