Are affordable natural cosmetics good? - Cafe Mimi review

Are affordable natural cosmetics good? - Cafe Mimi review


 Cosmetics Cafe Mimi noticed some time ago at drugsotre. They attracted my attention with interesting packaging and assurances from the producer. The products of this company are 95% natural, aren’t tested on animals and have packaging obtained in an ethical way, which after use can be taken for recycling (they are made of HDPE plastic). Today, I will tell you what I think about a few shampoos, shower gels and hair treatments from this company.

What the producer says:

They actively moisturize, thanks to a high content of antioxidants and vitamins, it prevents premature aging of the skin and loss of moisture, increases skin tension, making it elastic and well-groomed.
It contains 95% natural ingredients. Modern packaging allows you to use the product in 100%. The packaging is made of easily degraded material.

My opinion:

Shower gel vitamin for the skin has a wonderful fruity smell. A morning shower with this gel is just a pleasure. The gel has a high composition of fruit extracts, a mild detergent and a strong detergent (SLS). Usually I don’t use SLS soaps, but here this ingredient is not one of the first, which doesn’t dry my skin.
The packaging of this gel is very interesting and original. It is practical and it would certainly be convenient to go. It is easy to get a product out of it, weighs less and takes up much less space than a typical bottle. Its capacity is 100ml, so you can take it to the plane.

My opinion:

The shampoo has a pleasant smell and is efficient.
Its composition includes SLS, it isn’t at the beginning of the composition, and before it there is Cocamidopropyl Betaine. I don’t mind SLS in the composition, it doesn’t sensitize and irritate my skin. I usually choose Alterra shampoos, which have a fairly strong detergent - Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate and they don’t harm me. However, I think that for people with a sensitive scalp, this shampoo can be drying or irritating on the skin.
The shampoo thoroughly cleanses the scalp and keeps it fresh for a long time. Usually, I wash my hair every 2-3 days and after using this shampoo I can calmly wash it after 3 days.
I didn’t notice that after using this shampoo my hair was growing faster or it was strengthened, but such promises are expected from masks or hair conditioners, not shampoos, which I quickly wash off my head.
The packaging of this shampoo is larger - 250 ml. Unfortunately, it isn’t so easy to use anymore. It’s made of a flexible material that bends and makes it difficult to put shampoo on the palm. I definitely prefer smaller cosmetics in this type of packaging, they are much easier to use.

Price: 4.50 € / 250 ml

My hair is more waved than curly, but usually products for curly hair work well on them. However, this mask is probably more suitable for very curly hair. It doesn’t work badly, but it has a lot of oils. My hair was straightened and slightly flapped after using it.
The mask is not my favorite, in turn the hair serum is great. It Super prolongs hair freshness! It has a cool composition full of extracts, I would gladly bought a large pack of serum and saw whether with regular use accelerates hair growth and nourishing hair roots.
