I have been wanting to write about Haus of Gloi for a while now. I discovered this brand months ago and it was definitely my favorite body product brand of 2012. Haus of Gloi is a vegan brand selling a vast range of products for the body such as perfume oil, scrubs, lip balms and body emulsions. I have tried a number of their products since I discovered this amazing brand. Here are my favorites in this post.
This formula contains Shea butter and pumpkin seed oil. Initially when hearing the word "butter" I assumed this product would be heavy and greasy, the reason why I hate the Body Shop Body Butters. But instead it is rich enough to provide deep hydration to my skin without that oil slick wet feeling. What I love most about this is that when I touch my skin hours after applying it, my skin feels so soft, in other words it is long lasting hydration. The scents from Haus of Gloi are incredible, unlike no other brand I have tried. I have tried various scents from this range and my picks are Imp, Ghost Puffs (limited edition for Halloween) and Litchi Milk Tea.
I have never ever had a shower with a product as beautiful as this. Whipped Soap resembles a mousse like texture which when used with water, creates an aromatic lather. It feels amazing on the skin and I look forward to having a shower just so I can use it. The only problem is, I can't see that Whipped Soap is a permanent item in the Haus of Gloi store. It only ever seems to be included in seasonal offerings, but they do frequently have these available. My advice is to be quick for this product as they do sell out fast. I recommend signing up to the store newsletter, that way you would be first to know about new products. The scent I have pictured here is Hearth which was part of the Christmas range.
Soft Bubbling Scrub
This was actually the first product I ever used from Haus of Gloi. At first I thought the consistency looked odd in the tub. After using it once I was sold. I was expecting it to bubble a whole lot more than it does. It gently bubbles, more like a fizz effect. The granules are fine but enough to make your skin feel polished and smooth afterwards. Because it isn't oil based, it doesn't leave that oily film on the skin like some sugar scrubs I have tried. Pictured here is Three Treasures (limited edition). I highly recommend the Imp scent which is available in their permanent range.
I love Haus of Gloi products so much. I have backups of these products in various scents as I have that fear they will discontinue them. The scents I have tried are unique and most smell edible, often making me hungry!
Most products you can try in a smaller version than pictured here for less than $5. I recommend you do that so you can try a few scents and find your favorites. The large sized tubs are all around $8-$10.
Haus of Gloi are based in the US and have international shipping.
Get on it!
