BYBI Review

I am so excited to bring you my BYBI review! This brand I was introduced to this past fall and I have really fallen for it. The brand has so much to offer, is budget friendly, sustainable, effective and so easy to get your hands on. If you haven’t had a chance to try out this brand, you are definitely missing out!

 

Affiliate Disclosure: I do have affiliate links in this blog post. If you purchase something from my link, I will receive a small commission from the sale.  This comes at no cost to you, but is paid by the company.  I do not take becoming an affiliate with any company lightly.  If I am, it’s because I believe in the company and their product.

 

Introduction to the BYBI Brand

BYBI is a U.K. brand that was founded in 2017 by Elsie Rutterford and Dominika Minarovic. BYBI stands for “By Beauty Insiders” which is referring to their beauty blog Clean Beauty Insiders.  The blog documented Elsie and Dominika as they swapped out their conventional skincare products for more natural products. As they were doing this they found there wasn’t really a skincare brand that catered to what they needed and wanted. This led them to doing DIY recipes with natural ingredients to create the products they wanted. 

 

It is from the need for a brand that truly met all their standards that BYBI was born! And, boy, are their standards so high!  The actual skincare products are made of clean, nourishing  and active ingredients. The BYBI brand is also not only a truly sustainable skincare brand that believes our skincare products shouldn’t come at a cost to our planet but it also aims to minimize our carbon footprint.

 

So many stellar clean beauty products from BYBI!

 

What I Love About BYBI

I was going to initially share the pros and cons of BYBI, but then I realized there were no cons! So instead, I am sharing everything I love about the brand:

  • Affordable: When you can purchase an entire clean skincare routine for under $100 that is music to my ears! Not everyone wants to spend hundreds of dollars on their skincare and BYBI makes that possible. Of the products available on Credo, the most expensive one is just $26, but most are under $20!
  • Clean Ingredients: BYBI chooses ingredients with your skin's health in mind. On top of that BYBI has created their own grading system that they use to ensure they are truly using sustainable ingredients in their products. 
  • Effective: If products aren't effective, what's the point?! And I can attest to the effectiveness of the products I tested.
  • Widely Available: When I can pick up a product on a Target run or order from my favorite on-line clean beauty retailer, it just makes it so much easier!
  • Packaging: The packaging is so chic with their bright colors! But that is really icing on the cake. The thought that has gone into their packaging to ensure sustainability is truly amazing. 70% of packaging is made from glass (recyclable). They also don't use adhesive labels which makes recycling all that much easier! When glass isn't possible they use a bioplastic material that is derived from sugarcane. Grasspaper is used to create the boxes that the products come in – which is much more sustainable than wood pulp. And the best part, they know there are places to improve their sustainability, so where they can improve I have no doubt they will!

 

 Zero Waste reports that in 2018 alone, 120 billion+ units of packaging was produced by the cosmetics industry. But one of my favorite things about BYBI is they have truly taken to heart being a sustainable brand when it comes not just their ingredients but their packaging too!

 

BYBI 2022 Beauty Product Reviews

I have been lucky enough to try out a handful of BYBI's beauty products. I am sharing my thoughts on each one in my review below.

 

Supercharge Serum Active Botanical Concentrate

There is nothing to not like about this serum…but really!  It has so many uses.  It is a radiance boosting formula.  It helps to energize and repair dull skin but doesn’t feel greasy or heavy!  It absorbs so well and leaves your skin feeling so soft.  I love how lightweight, yet nourishing it is.  You can apply this anywhere that needs some extra hydration too!  From your face, to your neck, or chest and it can be worn day or night.  I love applying it before my cream moisturizer for even added hydration overall.  Having dry skin, this is such a great combo, especially in the winter season.  You can even use this during the day or at night.  Can’t recommend it enough! Get it here.

 

Swipe Clean Cleansing Oil And Makeup Remover

This is a facial cleansing oil and makeup remover in one.  It really does remove makeup so well, even sunscreen.  It is a traditional oil cleanser, so your skin definitely feels a tad oily after using.  I recommend doing a double cleanse after to remove any excess oil and using a facial cloth to wipe off any extra oil.  I personally loved how it felt on my skin, especially during the winter season as my skin is extra dry and can use all the moisture.  Mascara even comes off super easy with the Swipe Clean.  It contains hibiscus and papaya oils which are both rich in AHAs(alpha hydroxy acids) that helps to dissolve excess sebum.  I apply to dry skin and then massage on my face in circular motions.  Then I add a little water to slightly emulsify it into a milky consistency.  Get it here.

 

 

Bakuchiol Booster

My V.A. Becky told me about this one. This is a nighttime serum that you can use alone or with your moisturizer. It has bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol, and olive squalane. With these two power house ingredients, Becky told me she noted improvements in her skin texture along with softening of the skin.  I knew I had to try it!  I too was so impressed!  It feels like a rich oil and very luxe, but again it only has two ingredients!  I love the simple ingredients however, it really makes it great for even sensitive skin types.  The oil as I mentioned feels rich but it seeps right into the skin so well.  I also noticed softening of the skin and less pronounced fine lines after using!  You can add it to your moisturizer or just directly on the skin as I do.  And at $10 you can’t beat that.  Get it here!

 

Day Glow C-Caf Cream

You know a product is good when your husband keeps stealing it and putting it on his side of the bathroom counter!  I’ve been consistently using this in the mornings in my skincare routine and loving it.  It has a combination of vitamin C and caffeine in it to help decrease puffiness and also brighten the skin.  I haven’t noticed it helping with puffiness but I’ve definitely noticed a brighter complexion overall, which I love especially in the mornings.  I also love how well it absorbs into the skin, so applying makeup feels so effortless.  No greasy feeling especially throughout the day. Get it here!

 

Milk Melt

Oh I loved this soothing oat milk cleanser!  It feels nourishing but also does a great job of removing my makeup and debris from the day.  It has a slight foam to it which makes it great for giving that clean feeling but yet doesn’t dry the skin.  It’s even great for the most sensitive skin types!  I apply a little water and then add some product and rub in circular motions all over my skin.  It feels clean and balanced once I’m done cleansing.  It also has a unique ingredient in it called Probiotic coconut yogurt which helps to re-balance the skin’s microbiome.  Sign me up for that!  When our skin’s microbiome is healthy, then our skin is healthy! Such a great cleanser. Get it here!

 

 

Eye Plump Bakuchiol Overnight Eye Cream

Their Eye Plump is a power packed eye cream!  It has a combination of bakuchiol- plant based retinol, broccoli seed oil and hyaluronic acid.  It is meant to smooth and plump the under eye area.  This is their night eye cream.  I apply a pea sized amount with my ring finger(least amount of muscles to tug at the skin) and then gently tap it in.  It soaks in right away, no oily residue.  I noticed my eye area seemed well rested and smooth when using this.  I love waking up to feeling like my under eye area got some love and I definitely feel that way when I use this!  Get it here!

 

Bright Eyed Illuminating Eye Cream

This is their Illuminating Eye Cream.  It is meant for wearing during the day.  It feels lighter than the Eye Plump.  It has a combination of arnica and hyaluronic acid in the formula.  It is meant to plump and brighten the under eye area.  I love how it instantly absorbs into the skin.  So many products often can feel heavy under makeup but not the Bright Eyed.  I can easily wear my makeup over it and it feels great.  It also contains sustainably sourced peach mica in it that helps to offer light reflecting properties for counterbalancing the appearance of dark circles.  I didn’t notice a brightness from it but just an overall hydrated look, which I think is super important when applying makeup under the eye area.  If it’s too dry it can look crepey and actually make you look older. Get it here!

 

Night Nutrition

This night cream has it going on!  It feels rich and hydrating on the skin, all the things you want from a night cream.  I love how protected my skin feels when applying this at night.  It also has all the things in it!  From antioxidants, to ceramides, vitamins and essential fatty acids.  It’s meant to hydrate your skin, but also strengthen and repair it at the same time.  A serious skin treat!   I wake up with my skin feeling supple and hydrated still.  Often my skin can feel dry or a little drier than I want, but this really helps to keep moisture intact the whole night.  Such a great buy!  Oh and no greasy residue like a lot of creams- really absorbs great. Get it here!

 

 

Conclusion: Is BYBI Worth The Hype?

I totally think BYBI is worth the hype!  I have been so impressed with the products and performance for the price.  You can get a whole natural skincare routine for under $100 with BYBI!  That is unheard of in natural beauty.  What I love about their products is I don’t feel like I’m sacrificing when I’m using them.  They offer great results and really look chic as well.  Often it can feel overwhelming when switching over to natural beauty products because of the price and having to order everything online, but BYBI makes it easy with the convenience of being able to get them at Target and the budget friendly prices!  

 

What’s your favorite BYBI product?

Beauty Heroes carries so many clean beauty brands!

 

OSEA

OSEA is a truly unique skincare brands. Jenefer, the founder, was inspired by her grandmother who credits the ocean to healing her. From what she learned from her grandmother of the healing properties of the ocean and her knowledge, she chose seaweed as the base of her skincare line.  Seaweed contains powerful minerals and ingredients to help restore and nourish the skin. The products truly speak for themselves! Check out my favorites below:

Hyaluronic Sea Serum- If you have dry skin or wrinkles this is for you.  It instantly adds moisture to thirsty skin and smooths fine lines.  Hyaluronic acid is known for it’s ability to attract moisture to the skin.  Just to give you a little visual, hyaluronic acid attracts 1,000 times it’s weight in water- making it a powerful player in improving elasticity.  Your skin will feel supple and smooth.  Not only does this serum have hyaluronic acid but also three different kinds of organic seaweed that help deliver antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.  In other words it’s a powerhouse serum for the skin! Shop the hyaluronic sea serum!

Ocean Cleanser- This cleanser is a definite fave! It’s such an overall soothing cleanser, yet highly effective. It removes all my my makeup and grime from the day- yes even my stubborn eye makeup.  I get my skin damp first and then apply several pumps to my hands.  Then I rub in circular motions all over my face.  After rinsing with water my skin feels so hydrated, and clean.  Not stripped or dry.  It does such a great job of imparting hydration to the skin, and nourishing it with vitamins and minerals.  Did I mention it smells like candy?!  Shop OSEA cleanser here!

Undaria Body Polish- This body polish is unlike any I’ve used and I can't stop recommending it! It is creamy in consistency but yet strong enough to remove and exfoliate unwanted dry skin. After using it my skin looks slightly pink and plump.  It takes dull skin and gives it a good polish, revealing the brightest and prettiest skin.  Upon opening it, you’re greeted with scents of lavender and Sweet Melissa.  It awakens your senses and revitalizes your whole body.  It exfoliates the skin with powdery grains of pumice, acai, and guarana.  I get my body wet first, and then apply the body polish and use circular motions to rub it in.  A serious skin treat! Get it here.

 

Ursa Major

I love that they keep things simple in the Ursa Major Skincare line.  They are obsessed with natural skincare and creating formulas that truly work.  They spend much of their time focused wholeheartedly on what products they are actually creating.  They don’t want another product sitting on the shelf but something that they love.  They want products that perform and only have the essentials, not a long laundry list of ingredients.  Simple is best.  Lastly, they’re line is focused on all gender types- so it works for everyone!

Golden Hour Recovery Cream- This has been the perfect moisturizer to add on top of my oils in the morning and at night for a little extra hydration. Not only does this cream moisturize but also provide great anti-aging benefits with it’s naturally rich antioxidants.  It seeps into my skin so well, and doesn’t feel greasy.  My hubs has been stealing this from me too-that means it’s good people!  He can be pickier than me at times.  What’s even better is the price tag on this cream, $48!  A steal for a green beauty cream that works and is full of skincare actives! Check it out here!

Go Easy Shampoo and Conditioner- This is such a good all around shampoo and conditioner.  It really makes my hair feel extra clean and bouncy.  Not a heavy shampoo at all.  It still lathers a little too which I love.  It smells of citrus mixed with a little sandalwood.  The conditioner is light, yet my hair still feels hydrated. My husband also loves this shampoo too.  I have fine hair and it really gives it the clean feeling.  If you’ve been around clean beauty for any length of time then you know it can be hard to find a shampoo and conditioner that get the job done.  My sister tried it and she has thick coarse hair and she didn’t love it.  I know everyone has a different hair type so wanted to throw that out there.  Get it here!

 

Maya Chia

The all star ingredient in Maya Chia is the supercritical chia oil.  Not only is chia oil heralded for it’s fast absorbing ability, but also for it’s antioxidants, minerals, and omega’s- a skin’s dream team!  You can say bye to fine lines and wrinkles.  Plus, it has clinically been proven to increase hydration. Check out my full review on Maya Chia I did to learn about how they extract the chia oil! 

The Optimist-  This gem is housed in a dark glass bottle, preserving every last drop of goodness.  Smells divine with hints of neroli, sweet orange, and ylang ylang.  The formula itself feels so hydrating on the skin and refreshing with white tea, antioxidants, fatty acids and phytonutrients- just to name a few.  I can’t forget the actual spray function.  It works so well!  I know it might sound funny, but after trying hundreds of mists in my day, the spray function is actually quite important.  You don’t want the mist to feel like it’s attacking your skin or spraying you in the eye!  The Optimist sprays so well all over the face.  The founder Susanne nailed it! Get it here!

The Super Couple- Ok, so this is the serum that started my infatuation with Maya Chia!  I did a whole YouTube video on this product.  You can watch it here.  So why all the fuss?  Well, for starters it melts right into your skin.   No oily residue at all.  Perfect for at night, and during the day before makeup. Get it here.

The Straight A Serum- This is Maya Chia’s newest product.  I have been using this for a while and definitely can speak to the overall experience of it.  It contains the plant retinol bakuchiol which I’ve used before in other skincare products and it also contains moth bean extract- another plant derived retinol.  But it also contains an advanced retinol using an encapsulated Retinol.  This is a derivative of Vitamin A without BHT.  BHT has been shown to cause liver damage in rats even in small amounts.  Plus, the supply chain with BHT is very unstable.  Besides the powerful retinols it also contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E.  These brighten the skin and help fade hyperpigmentation.  You’re also going to get some serious hydration from this serum with Buriti oil, and chia seed oil. Check out The Straight A Serum here.

 

Evolvh

This organic hair brand has some of the best natural shampoo I've tried as well as some amazing natural styling products. So excited they're available at Beauty Heroes!

UltraShine Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner- I’ve been testing it out and have been super impressed with the overall formula.  My hair feels so bouncy and clean.  And the clean feeling lasts for days!  I get so much volume from this shampoo and conditioner, plus it foams too!  This works for any hair type.  I’ve used it and I have fine, thin hair.  My sister has used it and she has thick, fine hair.  I have a friend who loves it and she has coarse thick curly hair. It smells citrusy.  I really smell grapefruit to be exact. This is the shampoo I’ve been recommending for really any hair type.  It just gets the job done!  Especially great for someone who is used to mainstream shampoos and conditioners and wants one that is going to really get their hair clean. I can go multiple days between shampooing my hair with this shampoo. It was a no brainer for the best natural shampoo and conditioner’s post! Get it here!

Super Curl Defining Cream- I have been looking for a curl cream for my youngest daughter’s hair for while.  She has curly hair and I wanted a product that would help define it and give it some weightless hold and add a little hydration.  The Evolvh Super Curl Defining Cream does just that.  It really gives the curl a more defined look overall.  You are left with a smooth defined curl and no frizz.  It doesn’t weigh down the hair either.  I apply a dime size drop in my hands, then while her hair is wet I apply it all over her hair with my hands.  Then I go back through and twist some of the curls.  Get it here 

 

This is just a look at a few brands available at Beauty Heroes, there are truly so many!!

12 Days of Holiday Giveaways- Day #9 Innersense Organic Beauty

12 Days of Holiday Giveaways- Day #9 Innersense Organic Beauty

Day 9: Innersense Organic Beauty

Welcome to 12 Days Of Holiday Giveaways!  We do this every year and it just gets better and better!

So in honor of the holidays upon us and the season of giving we’ve decided to extend our gratitude to our audience and share some of our favorite natural beauty brands with you.  After all this is the season of giving!  

We are pulling out all the stops and giving away almost $5K in product!  It's about to get real good.  

 

 

Giving away a bundle some of the best Innersense Organic Beauty Products (value $212)! This includes:

 

Companies like Innersense are setting the standard for the green beauty industry.  Innersense Beauty hair products are salon worthy. The founders of Innersense, Greg and Joanne Starkman, were in the beauty and wellness industry for years when they realized their beliefs weren’t matching up with their professional lives.  This birthed Innersense, a company that prides itself on integrity.  Their whole philosophy is so commendable and just downright amazing!  From actually listing every ingredient and why it’s in there, to environmental sustainability, kindness to animals, and giving back…the list could go on.  I mean the ingredient glossary alone is so cool. You know when hair products are created by stylists that they’re going to be good!  

 

As a hairstylist, one of the hardest things to transition from mainstream to nontoxic was hair products.  I mean it’s hard enough to find a shampoo and conditioner that works, but it can be even harder to find clean hair products. What drew me to Innersense in the first place was their standards.  They are committed to not only having quality products, but products that perform.  A hard thing to find in green beauty today.  I wanted a product that I could recommend to someone that was comparable, if not better than what they would find at a salon.  Well, look no further peeps, I’ve struck gold!

 

 

Read below for my review on just some of my favorite Innersense products:

  • Whipped Creme Texturizer- This is the best texturizer! My hubs uses this to add some texture and hold to his hair, I use it after I curl my hair for some definition and hold and I use it on my little girls to style their hair and smooth out flyaways. You could say it’s well loved. It’s a do it all product. It helps to define curls, eliminate frizz and smooth hair, as well as add a bit of texture. 
  •  I Create Lift Volumizing Foam- This is my favorite natural beauty volumizer.  It gives my hair some texture and helps to keep the volume going for the whole day.  This foam is the best for giving your roots and hair the body and volume that lasts all day!  Literally my hair will still have volume after a couple days.  The best volumizing hair product I’ve found in organic beauty.  A lot of times I’ll wash my hair and then blow dry it before bed.  Once I’m done blow drying it I’ll stick it up in a high ponytail.  In the morning my hair is full of body from being up in the ponytail and using the volume foam- it’s so good!
  • I Create Waves- I love adding this to my hair after I’ve curled it.  It adds so much texture and a little hold.  It really gives me that beachy look I crave. 
  • Pure Harmony Hair Bath Shampoo and Conditioner- This really helps to give your hair hydration but without weighing it down.  Plus, it smells so good!
  • Innersense Beauty Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioner-  Perfect for targeting stubborn knots post shower, especially for kid's hair.  I use this a lot on my girls' hair after shampooing their hair. This would also be perfect if your hair tends to be on the drier side.  I love this in the summer before going in the sun to protect my hair and for extra moisture.  Oh and I really love the smell- very light and refreshing with notes of lavender and rosemary.  Everyone needs this- trust me! 

 

So many great hair care products from one company!

Day 8: Credo Beauty

Welcome to 12 Days Of Holiday Giveaways!  We do this every year and it just gets better and better!

So in honor of the holidays upon us and the season of giving we’ve decided to extend our gratitude to our audience and share some of our favorite natural beauty brands with you.  After all this is the season of giving!  

We are pulling out all the stops and giving away almost $5K in product!  It's about to get real good.  

 

 

 

Giving away a $300 gift card to Credo Beauty!

 

If you're not familiar with Credo Beauty, allow me to introduce them to you.  This is one of my favorite online natural beauty retailers.  They have it all when it comes to clean and effective products.  They’re like the Sephora of clean beauty.  All the “IT” brands in one place!

 

What makes Credo Beauty extra special is that they have a Dirty List like no other!

 

“Europe has banned over 1300 ingredients. The U.S.? Just 30. And Credo? Over 2700.”

 

The best part is that all of their brand partners agree to not use any of the 2700 banned ingredients on Credo’s Dirty List, making shopping with this retailer so much easier!

 

The Credo Beauty Clean standard goes even further than their Dirty List.  This standard includes the following:

  • “Use official ingredient terminology (called INCI) and use ingredient source codes where possible
  • Obtain documentation on their ingredients’ composition, purity and sourcing information
  • Conduct basic consumer safety (on humans…that volunteer!) and product stability testing
  • Back up product and ingredient claims
  • Be transparent about “fragrance”—at a minimum they must categorize the type of fragrance they use, and we encourage full disclosure of all fragrance ingredients.”

 

And if you are just starting to clean up your beauty routine, Credo has 5 categories they recommend to clean up first. This includes:

  1.  Mascara
  2. Moisturizers
  3. Deodorant
  4. Lip Care
  5. Sunscreen

 

Check out some of my favorite brands and products below that would all be top choices when swapping out your conventional beauty products. And the best part, they can all be found at Credo Beauty!

Ilia

Ilia is one of my favorite natural beauty makeup brands!  They were one of the first on the clean beauty scene years ago and continue to keep making exceptional beauty products.  From their True Skin Serum Foundation, to their Ilia Beauty Lipsticks- Ilia Cosmetics has it going on. Some of my Ilia favorites include:

Westman Atelier is a luxury makeup line that prides itself on not only creating clean products but effective products that work.  They believe that makeup should be fast, easy and flawless.  Not something you need to spend hours on perfecting.  They create formulas that blend easily and make your life simpler.  After all makeup shouldn't be complicated. Some of my Westman Atelier favorites include:

One Love Organics

One Love Organics was one of the first clean beauty brands I tried years ago!  They literally were one of the first natural skincare brands that was making effective clean beauty products back in 2010.  Suzanne, the founder, combines her background of science and nature to create One Love Organics products.  One Love Organics really takes it to the next level when creating their formulations.  They have an Ecocert Licensed manufacturing facility in Georgia where they produce their products in small batches.  They never include synthetic dyes/fragrance, parabens, GMOs, nanoparticles, phenoxyethanol, silicon, or PEGs in their products. Check out my favorites from One Love Organics below:

 

 

Kosas

Kosas offers some of the best natural beauty makeup products.  From their tinted face oil, to their lipsticks- you can’t go wrong with a Kosas product.  The pigments are rich and colors are beautiful!  They remind me of my conventional favorite MAC products.

Day #5 White Lotus Home

Welcome to 12 Days Of Holiday Giveaways!  We do this every year and it just gets better and better!

So in honor of the holidays upon us and the season of giving we’ve decided to extend our gratitude to our audience and share some of our favorite natural beauty and natural living brands with you.  After all this is the season of giving!  

We are pulling out all the stops and giving away almost $5K in product!  It's about to get real good.  

 

 

Giving away a Twin Size Organic Cotton Stow (value $717) from White Lotus Home!

 

White Lotus is a store that offers pure and natural organic mattresses, bedding, and home furnishings all made in the USA.  It’s your one stop shop to clean up your bedroom! If you have been around for any sort of time, you know I love their products! I have their pillows for our whole family and we all love them.  You can choose from so many varieties- kapok, latex, organic cotton and more.  Our personal favorites are the shredded latex and the kapok.  My daughter also has their twin Organic Cotton and Wool Dreamton Mattress.  Free of harsh chemicals and fire retardants.  

 

White Lotus Home sent me 3 different pillow options to try when I first was deciding which pillow would work best for me.  When I was choosing my pillow options to try out they were so helpful.  Walking me through the whole process and asking questions to ensure I had the best options for how I sleep.

 

I initially ended up with the Shredded Latex pillow for my husband, a 100% cotton pillow for myself and the Kapok pillows for my kids. 

  • Shredded Latex Pillow My husband LOVES this pillow!  I’m not just saying that. When we first got it he had been on me for a while to pick up a new pillow. And when was trying this pillow out he couldn’t get over how good it was! He’s a side sleeper and likes his pillow to have some softness with it, but still offer some support.  The shredded latex pillow hit the nail on the head for him.  He said he’s never had a pillow he’s loved more!  The overall weight of the pillow is pretty heavy, it reminds me of a down pillow a little.  What’s great about White Lotus Home is you can customize the fill amount.  Just get a zippered case for the pillow when selecting the type of pillow and you’ll be able to take latex out if it’s too much.  I love this feature!  I did try my husband’s pillow too and I have to say I really loved it as well.  It offers the support I like but still feels fluffy. Although I initially got the 100% organic cotton pillow for myself, I do prefer the shredded latex pillow.  Read my review on the organic cotton pillow below.

  • 100% Organic Cotton So this is the pillow I initially got for myself.  It offers more of a firm support than the shredded latex. This is especially great if you sleep on your stomach.  I don’t sleep on my stomach but I do like a decent pillow firmness.  I used to sleep with two pillows before getting this one.  I also got the medium fill because I knew I could always take some fill out if I wanted too.  It felt a little firm initially so I did take some of the cotton out.  Another perk of getting the zippered case!  That helped a lot.  Then I felt my head could sink more into the pillow and not be so stiff.  It’s also nice because once the pillow flattens out a little, I know I can go back and add more fill that I took out. After trying this out and the shredded latex, like I said, I prefer the shredded latex. Check out the 100% organic cotton pillow here!
  • Kapok  A great option for a side or back sleeper.  This one felt light on the head and not as firm as the cotton.  I like how it molded to my head after a while and didn’t feel as firm as it did in the beginning.  It seemed more breathable than my cotton one too.  The pillow we got to try was a travel pillow so it was a little harder to get an accurate idea of what a kapok pillow might be like since the pillow itself is smaller but overall I was happy with it.  I think the next time I order one I would order a kapok pillow.  I’ve been letting my son use the travel size pillow and he loves it!  It’s the perfect size for a toddler pillow.  The kapok pillows are also more budget friendly compared to the other two options above.

Like I said, my daughter has the Organic Cotton and Wool Dreamton Mattress, and we have loved it!  Even better, she seems to do great in it.  Super soft and durable.  It’s especially great for toddler beds because it doesn’t have a box spring. No fire retardants, pesticides, VOC’s.  Love knowing she’s sleeping on something nontoxic. Check it out here!
