I picked up a fun product at the health store last week called “Tate’s the Natural Miracle Conditioner”. Although I was a bit skeptical of its miracle-working abilities, I decided to give the small 5 oz bottle a chance at the price of $6.49. After trying it out, I certainly don’t regret it- I’ve never purchased a bottle with more uses!
The ingredients are pretty impressive, starting with mountain spring water, apples, berries, celery, etc. and you can check out the full ingredient list here. The product is a creamy white, with a non-greasy feel and very light, fresh smell. My favorite part though is that it came with a booklet noting 82 different uses for the product including as a moisturizer, conditioner, shave gel, cuticle cream, lip balm, fabric softener, deodorant, ironing (add 1 Tbsp to a bottle of water and spray lightly on clothes before ironing to help with wrinkles), and much more.
So far I’ve used the product as a lotion and conditioner- it moisturized without leaving a greasy feeling on my skin and it also was nice on my hair. My favorite use so far though was as shaving gel. It does not foam, but coats the skin with a nice layer for shaving and I think my sensitive skin was appreciative of the natural ingredients. I’ve been trying to get away from my current chemical based shaving cream for quite some time and I think this is just what I’ve been looking for.
Overall, it’s a great little mulit-tasking product and is perfect for travelling when there isn’t room to pack lots of bottles. If you decide to try it out, make sure to get the little booklet on all the different uses- it’s pretty fun testing them out!
