Are you a shower person? A bath person? A bit of both? Regardless of your preferred cleaning method, you would be hardpressed to feel very clean without the use of some kind of body care product.
Like all of you, I have tried my fair share of soaps, creams and shampoos. Although my preference is using natural products, I haven’t had much luck specifically with natural and organic shampoos. That is, until now..
Week #111: Switch to Carina Organics Bath and Body Products!
Full-disclosure: some of the products I have tried were offered to me in support of my blog!
I know.. I know their are tons of hair, body and face products to choose from and you may be wondering:
Why did I pick Carina Organics?
To be completely honest, at first, it was mainly the packaging and organic certification that caught my eye. I wasn’t going to buy anything since I have backups upon backups of shampoo bottles (stems from my irrational fear of running out of household items 😅) but then I noticed this:
If you suffer from a dry scalp, you are surely familiar with many harsh shampoos meant to treat this condition. This was the first time EVER that I had found a natural & moisturizing shampoo containing some organic ingredients that claims to cleanse your hair & scalp while also eliminating dead or dry skin. Plus, it’s made in Canada 🇨🇦 too! Without a second thought, I bought a bottle to try it out.
Does it work?
If it didn’t, let’s just say I wouldn’t be writing this article right now. This winter has been harsh and dry so naturally our skin tends to suffer as a result. One wash and I saw an improvement. My hair and scalp felt clean and looked significantly more hydrated.

Carina Organics Product Reviews
I really wanted to give you a good sense of each type of products they offer so I tested all 3 categories of Carina Organics products:
Carina Organics Shampoo + Conditioner
Aside from the Sweet Pea Dandruff Flake Removal Shampoo which I talked about earlier, Carina Organics also carries:
The second Shampoo I’ve been using is the Sweet Pea Daily Moisturizing Shampoo. The Sweet Pea fragrance smells really good, it’s a light floral scent with a touch of sweetness. You can find other great fragrances such as:
- Pink Grapefruit
Instructions: Massage the shampoo into your hair, let it sit for 30 seconds to a minute and rinse thoroughly.
With the Daily Moisturizing Shampoo my hair feels really clean, however, my scalp doesn’t respond very well to this shampoo. Luckily, I had the idea to go to Metro and pick up the Sweet Pea Daily Light Conditioner. When I started pairing these two products it made all the difference, they work very well at hydrating your hair and scalp.
Pros: Made of Natural & Organic Ingredients, easy to use, great smell & affordable.
Cons: Requires the purchase of both the shampoo and conditioner.
Carina Organics Daily Face Wash
I’ve been using the Carina Organics Unscented Daily Face Wash every night for weeks to remove makeup and cleanse my face. This product is very gentle and free of chemicals which is key when applying a product to your body, particularly near your eyes or mouth.
Instructions: With one pump, you can lather your entire face and then rinse off the product with a warm cloth. It leaves your skin feeling really clean.
Pros: Made of Natural & Organic Ingredients, easy to use, mild on your skin & affordable.
Cons: The only thing that could make this product better would be having a fragranced version, I think a mild lavender scent would be really soothing.
Carina Organics Shampoo & Body Wash
If you have a child in your life, you will love this! Carina has a line of products that specifically caters to little ones. Their baby products include shampoos, body wash, bubble bath and lotion. I tried out the scented Carina Organics Shampoo & Body Wash (two in one). I figured if it’s good for kids, it’s good enough for me. Plus, for traveling it’s nice having a dual purpose product like this.
Instructions: lather on your body and rinse OR massage into hair and then rinse thoroughly!
Pros: Made of Natural & Organic Ingredients, easy to use, multi-purpose, good scent (sweet pea), baby-friendly & affordable.
Cons: Only wish they offered more types of fragrances.
This brand really has stood out from others I have tried and it’s basically all I’ve been using ever since.
Where can I buy Carina Organics?
You can find Carina Organics in-store at Terra20 & Natural Section at Metro. Online you can purchase Carina Products on their official website, Well.ca, Pureanada.ca and Amazon.ca. The products regularly go on sale at my local Metro so I recommend you keep an eye out for those deals!
