Today I am going to talk about a brand I never reviewed their products. That is Plum Goodness, one of the popular vegan brand in India. I know, many of you love their products. Almost all my blogger friends use Plum products and say good words about them. Though I have started using late. But who disagree that “better late than never”.
Well, I have started my journey with Plum using their body care products. As a body care freak I always love to buy those stuff. I buy a lot from different brands, sometimes more than face care products. Whatever, I purchased Plum Body wash Crème Caramel and Plum Body Butter Vanilla and Fig. Let’s start with the review.
Plum Body Wash Crème Caramel:
“Real Caramel and oodles of skin-friendly goodies topped off with just the right level of sweet caramelicious aroma.”
It’s a creamy, soap-free, non-drying formula with mesmerizing caramel fragrance. Paraben-free, SLS-free, phthalate-free & vegan – as always. Suitable for all skin types.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Aqua, Buteth-3, Caramel, Cetyl Alcohol, CI 15985, CI 19140, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Ethylene Glycol Distearate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Polyquaternium-7, Sodium Benzotriazolyl Butylphenol Sulfonate, Sodium Choride, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Gluconate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Tributyl Citrate.
How to use:
Lather up under a hot or cold shower. Use a bath spunge for added benefits.
Price: INR 550 for 330 ml. Buy here.
The product comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with disc-top dispenser. The packaging makes the exact amount of the product come out. The best part is Plum haven’t packed the bottle in any bubble wrap. It comes with paper packaging. The compact and eco-friendly packaging is just love.
This velvety smooth, creamy formula is very gentle on skin and super moisturizing. It has a sweet yet mild scent of caramel that is quite refreshing. The brand has more other fragrances in this range. I personally feel no irritations on my skin. Due to creamy formula it doesn’t form any foam but delivers a mild lather. You will feel like you’re applying a cream rather than body wash. Very little amount is enough for the whole body.
The formula is very comfortable and easy to apply. But, as it’s very creamy, the product feels slippery on skin and can’t be washed off quickly. So, you may have to use more water to wash off completely. But after shower, my skin feels soft, smooth and super hydrated. Its effect stays for a long time. I need lesser amount of body lotion afterwards.
Some may feel it expensive. You can buy when it will be on sale and you are going to love it. As very little amount is needed, one bottle will go long.
Plum Body Butter Vanilla and Fig:
“A deep hydrating, emollient body butter that’s not just effective, but a sheer delight to smell and feel.”
This excellent hydrating formula gives a great relief from dryness, especially during winter. It contains nourishing shea butter, soothing vanilla and antioxidant fig extracts for all-round care and Vit B3 for skin conditioning. Another goodness is that the product is Paraben-free, SLS-free, phthalate-free & vegan.
Aqua, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerine, Fiscus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Fragrance, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Niacinamide, Phenoxyethanol, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Fruit Water.
Price: INR 650 for 200 gms. Available here.
The product comes in a plastic tub packaging with a screw cap and a protective lid under. Very cute and attractive packaging. You can easily reuse the tub after finishing this. But, the bulky tub is too heavy to carry along. If you want to carry it, you have to transfer the product into a small tub. I do that. During my last trip to Dhanolti, I carry the body butter in a small tub. It helped me a lot to keep my skin soft and hydrated in -3°c.
This body butter has a thick creamy consistency that doesn’t feel greasy or oily though. It’s light brown in color and very easy to apply on skin just as we spread butter on a toast. It takes a few seconds to absorb. Scoop out little amount to let it absorb quickly.
Coming to the fragrance, it has a sweet fruity smell with the note of vanilla. The smell is mild and it can energizes your senses. If you are sensitive to strong scents like me, you will love the fragrance.
It has become my winter staple. I like light body lotions during summer. But in winter I need some heavy duty to take care of my matured skin. It makes my skin soft, supple and hydrated, leaving behind a mild aroma. Quite a luxurious feeling post bath.
Overall, I am happy with both the products. They have become perfect winter skincare products for me. I strongly recommend them to you who are worried with your dry and pale skin during winter.
Thanks for reading.
