How to use our Self-Care Bar Range by Sophie Kovic

Before I begin this ‘how to’, I have to say, all of our Bars are SO easy to use. Seriously.

You. Just. Add. Water. That's it!

Our range of Self Care bars include Shampoo & Conditioner plus Body & Face Bars


There’s no crazy long transition period to getting started; they’re just like using products from a plastic bottle and despite what you may have seen or heard, with our Bars you don’t need to rush out and buy any apple cider vinegar! Hooray!

But don't just take my word for it! We have over 300 reviews from YOU LOVELY LOT with an average rating of 4.9/5! 

''Love this shampoo bar! I've tried a couple of different brands and this is by far the best! It leaves my hair looking so shiny and feeling so soft. And it smells amazing! Absolute win!''


''I've used plenty of shampoo bars over the years and have been left with residue that's made my hair look greasy and needed a vinegar rinse after each wash. This is the 1st shampoo bar I've come across that suds well and rinses perfectly. I do love this.''

I know that most of you don’t have time to experiment with eco-friendly products that don’t work, so we created a Shampoo and Conditioner Bar that simply put, WORKS.

In fact, they'll do more than that. The Argan Oil will hydrate and soften, the Shea Butter will moisturise your scalp and the Avocado Oil in our Conditioner Bar will work to strengthen your hair. 

Our Shampoo and Conditioner Bars can be used in almost an identical way to liquid shampoo and conditioner; the one huge difference is that you add the water.

If you check the ingredients list on the back of your shampoo or conditioner bottle at home, you’ll likely find the main ingredient is Aqua (Water). We believe that water is precious so instead you’ll find our bars filled with high performing, clean ingredients, with no nasties and 0% water. 

So, now we've convinced you to give them a go, here's my top tips to get the best results!

Shampoo Bar

The trick is to wet your hair thoroughly first, run the Bar under water briefly (to help start the lathering process) or do it like me and rub the Bar directly on your head! Work the Shampoo Bar through your hair several times, starting at the root and running it down to the tip.

If this is your first time using a Shampoo Bar, start off with 2-3 strokes through your hair. Those with thicker or longer hair may need more strokes to get a full coverage.

Place the bar down in a dry spot out of running water and treat your hair like you would do with a liquid shampoo. Work the roots to create a lather and rinse well afterwards. If you normally double shampoo, you can continue to do this with our Bars.

Conditioner Bar 

As your hair is already wet, start by massaging your Conditioner Bar between your hands to wet it slightly. You can now run your Conditioner Bar directly through your hair. If you prefer a full coverage you can run the bar from root to tip but if you find that it’s only your ends that need special attention then just focus the Bar there. Leave for 2-3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.

Face Cleansing Bar Sophie Kovic


When it comes to Face Bars, we've got two options for you (hot tip, I use both!). There's the Face Cleanser Bar and the Charcoal Face Bar.

The Face Cleaser Bar

With 4.9 stars from our customers, this soap free face wash is a hydrating, skin-cleansing solution. Nourish your skin with high levels of Vitamin C & E from Kakadu Plum, Hemp Oil, and Shea Butter. Perfect for sensitive skin, free from parabens, SLS's and synthetic fragrance free.

I use this every single day (sometimes twice a day). All you need to do is wet the bar, work into a lather and apply in a circular motion onto either a konjac sponge or directly onto damp skin (careful of your eyes!). Rinse and gently towel dry. How easy is that!

Not only is it plastic free and saves our precious water, I just love the way my skin feels after I use it.


Charcoal Face Bar

Charcoal Face Bar
I'm super proud of this one. I use this once or twice a week to give my face a deeper cleanse (with our Konjac Sponge) but you could use it every other day.

It's special because it detoxifies and rebalances your skin. It contains some pretty epic all natural ingredients like Activated Charcoal which draws out harmful impurities, excessive sebum and dirt leaving my skin really smooth.

It's also got Organic Inulin Prebiotic, from Jerusalem Artichoke - crazy I know! This helps to balance and maintain a healthy skin microbiome.

Give it a go!



Body Bars


These all natural and plastic free body bars replace your body wash and smell simply AMAZING. I've tried all three fragrances and I'd be hard pressed to pick a favourite. There's Lemon Myrtle, Rose Geranium and Citrus & Mint.

One of the things about these bars that I love (other than how awesome they make my skin feel) is that one bar replaces one bottle of body wash. They're also budget friendly as I used to find myself spending more on plastic body wash that I do on these bars.

I usually work the bar into a bit of a lather using my (wet) hands. It lasts for ages and the fragrances are all very lush and long lasting.


Where to keep your bars!

Keep your Bar dry between uses in one of our Soap Holders such as our Ceramic Soap Dish or Stainless Steel Travel Tin.

I travel a lot so I've found travelling with bars instead of plastic bottles is not only a heap lighter (not carrying around all that water!) but way more economical. Our Aluminium Travel Tins are all labelled too so you know exactly what's what.

That's it! Super simple, I told you! 

Don't forget that we have a 100% money back guarantee across our entire Bars range so what are you waiting for?!?
