Product Review: Gud Conditioner

Leave a comment

It’s been quite a while since we’ve done a product review on anything, but I thought it might be time for a new one. If you’re looking for a new conditioner, you might want to read about this one:

Gud (from Burt’s Bees) Conditioner

Where and How Much? I got it at Target for around $7.

Specs: The bottle sits in the shower easily. I tend to knock bottles over easily. It smells like pears, hence the cutesy name “Pearanormal Activity.” You get 12 fl oz.

Experience: I bought the conditioner in the first place because I was looking for cruelty-free beauty products in February. I was willing to try anything that wasn’t tested on bunnies and I found this. I was skeptical about the amount you get for 7 dollars, but I tried it anyway.

It’s a nice fruity scent, not too overbearing. The conditioner is really thick compared to stuff I usually use. Think of how runny the consistency of OK Carrots is, this is very thick. I was able to get a good coverage for the amount I normally use during each hair washing. There was also a good amount of slip. I was able to comb my conditioned hair pretty easily.

I’m still skeptical about the amount I had to pay for. I wish I lived in a world where being natural and environmentally conscious was rewarded with savings. But if you want nice things you have to pay for them. Was this particularly nice? Sure, nothing to blow my skirt up, but nice enough, I suppose.

Here’s your ingredient list:
water, cetearyl alcohol, fragrance, ceteareth-20, glycerin, phenoxyethanol, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, hibiscus sabdariffa flower*, mentha piperita (peppermint) leaf extract*, salvia officinalis (sage) leaf extract*, thymus vulgaris (thyme) leaf extract*, urtica dioica (nettle) leaf extract*, glycerin, behentrimonium methosulfate, stearalkonium chloride, potassium sorbate, citric acid, alcohol denat. *Organic.

Is it a repeat? It will be if I can’t eventually figure out how to make my washout conditioner. I’m trying to save money in the long run and it would be so much easier if I could cut the cost in my hair care. There are still ingredients in the conditioner that I can’t identify, so that makes things hard too. Animals or Chemicals?
