I have been purchasing Grüum products for just under a year and have finally found a shampoo that doesn't make my fine hair fall flat.
Firstly, I love their website - you can build bundles, it is very plain and simple to navigate and the customer service team are very helpful.
You just place your order online and it arrives promptly in the post.
I have bought shaving products, soap, shampoo and face creams.
All Grüum bars are packaged in paper boxes, I have found them easy to recycle and repurpose. The razor blades come in plastic pots with a foil seal, which I find acceptable. They also offer a razor recycling scheme which i have yet to investigate.
The bottles are recyclable and can easily be reused. My daughter uses them to store slime ingredients, and to mix her paints.
Let me tell you about the shampoo...
They are round solid bars, and come in little cardboard boxes.
You can order a tin to store your bar, very handy if you work away or travel a lot!
I have tried all of the shampoo bars except the henna & juniper bar and rate them highly.
I have very fine straight bleached hair that needs to be washed daily but is dry in the lengths. With the use of the cocoa butter bar in particular, I have reduced how many times I wash my hair to just 3 times a week. It doesn't weigh my strands down, it leaves it incredibly soft, and I love the smell as it's fresh but very subtle.
I often gift Grüum products to friends and colleagues because they're appealing to so many people - especially those with particular ethical views or skin sensitivities as they are cruelty free and hypoallergenic.
Also notably, their products are not aimed to divide male/female. I have found it incredibly frustrating over the years that personal care products are marketed so divisively.
Again, coming back to the simplicity of it being "just" some skin care or "just" some razors. They're not fancy but they're certainly appealing and have a different aesthetic to the norm.
If you enjoy trends like industrial, modern, minimalism then these products will be right up your street.
*Quite often you'll find a discount code online and if you share your code with friends you will be rewarded with incentives/discounts etc*
I try to be aware of my carbon footprint and do not personally agree with animal testing. I love that Grüum is intentionally fuss-free and very simple, their ethic fits with mine perfectly 👌
