Lani is some kind of wonderful. The kind of wonderful that keeps my skin supple and my hair bouncy. It’s as pure as snow – for people and the planet and it’s 100% cruelty-free. I should say I haven’t been paid for this review, this is off my own back as I brought the product to try and it’s now been long enough to post my thoughts on it.

My Lani discovery came via Instagram, and if you live in the UK, you will know that most organic, vegan independent brands are based in the U.S or Canada, so I was pleased to find out that Lani is completely UK owned, by a beautiful soul known as Viola.

I’m not even going to lie, it was most definitely the pastel bottles caught got my attention, and the goodness inside wowed me a few seconds later. I love anything that boasts minimal ingredients and as I’ve pretty much thrown away anything that contains an ingredient that sounds remotely clinical. I needed some kind of hair care that tames my dry mane – I could have just bought virgin coconut oil but I wanted to share with you the alternatives out there that are “glamorous” and get the job done.

I use the Lani tropical hair treatment once a week – I leave it on my hair, mostly on the ends. I keep it on for just over an hour then wash it off. It works the way any great oil should, it detangles my hair and leaves it smooth.

I use the body treatment every day on rough skin such as elbows, knees, and my hands. They are small bottles (100ml), so you can travel with it or keep it by your bedside.

Full ingredients of the hair treatment are:

Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) seed oil
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) oil
Aleurites moluccana (Kukui) nut oil
Macadamia Integrifolia (Macadamia) nut oil

Full ingredients of the body treatment are:

Prunus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) oil
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) oil
Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) oil
Andansonia Digitata (Baobab) oil
Moringa Oleifera (Moringa) seed oil
Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) oil

I know they have recently launched a face mask, which comes in powder form, that I’m keen to try as well.

Have you used Lani before?
