The Natural and Organic Beauty Show seems like yonks ago but I am slowly getting to know all the brands that I met there. One of them was Less is More, who were recommended to me by Colleen from Lucy Anabella.
Less is More is an Austrian brand which started out as a hair care range in a salon and since its start in 2005 has developed into skincare as well. All the products are paraben, synthetic fragrance, preservative and mineral oil free and it is not tested on animals. The Less is More brand is the brainchild of a chemist and hairdressing supremo who have worked together to create a range that minimises it’s effect on the environment, maximise efficacy on the hair and skin by combining botanicals with biochemical innovation.
The Less is More team were distributing samples at the show so I have been able to try the Linden Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner, Lime Souffle Styling product and Grapefruit Body Lotion.
All of the products can be used for nine months once opened and come in thirty millilitre aerosol free pumps. They pumps are short and sturdy and quite ergonomic. The product is released via a squared off nozzle. The pump action stops when no product remains and you can see how much you have used. There is very little wastage.
100% Organic LindenGloss Shampoo – Repair, Shine, Protect
The shampoo is a thin gel. The Linden (honeysuckle) fragrance is not like that from my parent’s garden but it does smell lovely. As I only had thirty millilitres, I focused this on my scalp and roots. The first wash did foam but not massively, the second wash foamed more. It did not irritate my scalp in any way. I found that it cleansed my hair and scalp without stripping it and although my hair was not super dirty it did get rid of build up. This is definitely an option for a frequent wash shampoo.
99.7% Organic LindenGloss Conditioner – Repair, Shine, Protect
The condition is lovely and creamy with great slip. The fragrance is not as strong as the shampoo and actually I prefer it. The product has been designed for colour treated and damaged hair but for me it was not rich enough to use regularly – even as a frequent wash conditioner. I liked it, but not as much as the shampoo.
The range is available at Being Content in both the sample (thirty millilitre) and full two hundred millilitre) sizes so take a look.
