I have received official blogger credentials for Stockholm Beauty Week for two years in a row. Last year I was blown away by it all and was saddened that I was unable to attend this year. But I didn’t let that prevent me from experiencing the excitement of it all through pictures and videos and by testing products.
This time, I got my Swede to test a natural skincare line that launched last year at Stockholm Beauty Week created by Tony Irving.
Sweden Eco – Skincare for men is skincare for the conscientious man. For the man who wants excellent skincare results while nurturing his health and our environment. Our products are 100% natural and made primarily with certified organic ingredients. The ingredients are carefully selected and all production is in Sweden. Aloe vera and green tea comprise the base of the products, making them effective, gentle and long-lasting. The products have the light, fresh scent of sandalwood and cloves.
All products are 100% vegan and approved by Animal Rights Sweden and PETA. Sweden Eco is produced by RS Biokosmetik, which has spent 35 years making natural skincare products.
I can’t tell you how excited I was that my Swede agreed to test three products from the range. He enjoys his daily showers so we went for the Shampoo for body and hair. What started as a vacation beard this summer became a keeper (yaaas!) so he agreed to test the Beard and Face Oil. And who doesn’t need a good, safe deodorant? So adding an eco-safe one was a joy.
Here’s my Swede holding:
SHAMPOO FOR HAIR AND BODY
A mild organic shower cream/shampoo for hair and body that effectively moisturizes. Contains argan and jojoba oils which protect, nurture, and strengthen hair and skin. Mix a small quantity with water in your hand and distribute it onto wet hair and body. Massage in and rinse out; finish with cool water. Excellent for dry skin and scalp. Suitable for all skin and hair types.
BEARD AND FACE OIL
Exclusive and organic beard and facial oil. Softens the beard and has a nourishing effect on the skin. Contains nutrient-rich and active oils from watermelon seeds, chia, crambe, and argan. Concentrated, use a few drops onto moistened beard/skin. Excellent as a massage oil for the face. Suitable for all skin types.
An organic, mild, and effective deodorant. Made to withstand tough workouts and gentle on skin. The base is composed of fairtrade aloe vera, which softens skin and protects against irritation. Contains natural salts to counteract odour.
First up was the Shampoo for Hair and Body. My Swede used just a little and he said he could have used even less. He reported a very enjoyable shower experience and he smelled absolutely delicious afterward!
Next was the Beard and Face Oil. We’re still learning how to manage his facial hair.
Just like with the shampoo, only a little of this oil is needed to treat the face and beard. He started with a couple of drops massaged into his face, and then a few more for his beard. And then he combed the beard.
And we topped this off with the deodorant. Again, my Swede felt like he could have used less and I’m telling you, the layering effect worked so well. He smelled wonderful ALL day. I couldn’t resist going in for extra hugs and whiffs.
Sweden Eco’s products have not gone unnoticed by the industry and for a newcomer, their deodorant is receiving top marks, not just from me 😉 My Swede and I highly recommend this product line for men. It has everything you want and nothing you don’t. Find the full line on the Sweden Eco website.
