Veredus BioCare: Shampoo Sheen, Super Sheen, & Easy White REVIEW ft. eQuestri

I was lucky enough to meet with Jacky, the owner and creator of eQuestri, at the beginning of the year. She did contact me when my page was rather new and encouraged me to keep going with it and continue. I am so glad to hear that people really do read my posts, thank you!

She visited Tofino and I at the stables, and was kind enough to give us some products from the Veredus BioCare Line to review, which included the following:

DISCLAIMER: Receiving these products from eQuestri in no way alters my opinion on them. This is a true and honest review. 

SHAMPOO SHEEN (65AED/18USD):

I have used many shampoos that claim to make your horse’s coat softer, brighter, shiny etc. But I haven’t come across one that genuinely does it all except for this Shampoo Sheen! Even though it does not include any antiseptic or a scent that drives flies away which a lot of shampoos nowadays do, I was surprised with the results as you can see below:

Tofino is mostly clipped, so, it is always hard to to get some shine onto his short coat. You can see from the image below that his unclipped saddle area and even his body is glowing and not to mention super soft and smells really good!

The Shampoo Sheen comes in a 500ml bottle which is very decent as you do not need too much in your bucket. The packaging is very straight forward except for the fact that it does not include the ingredients within the shampoo, and nor does it include an expiration date.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Cleans amazingly! (even stains)
  • Smells good
  • Adds shine & brightness to the coat
  • Softens
  • No need for conditioner
  • Leaves horse smelling good
  • Good size (also comes in 3000ml too)

Cons:

  • No antiseptic/antibacterial
  • No ingredients listed
  • No expiration date listed

Verdict:This shampoo surprised me with how good it cleaned and made Tofino so soft! I love that it’s a 2 in 1 shampoo/conditioner. HOWEVER, I like to use shampoos with natural antiseptics since it can clean any small cuts gone unseen and is also a preventative, THEREFORE, I would use this for shows, in order to make him look like a star! I would definitely recommend this purchase 🙂 !!

 

SUPER SHEEN  (100AED/27USD): 

  

I used this on Tofino’s tail as yo can see below, and I felt like it did not add a drastic amount of shine. It did however, detangle his tail very quickly and is such an easy application as it is a spray bottle.

Post application, his tail was tangle free, nonetheless, it felt very sticky and somewhat rough. This could be due to the fact that it creates a protective layer on the surface of the hair to repel water, dust, bedding etc, which it really did! I was surprised by this factor. With that being said, the repelling did not last 15 days, more like 5 days which is still pretty good especially for 3 day competitions.

The packaging is a straight forward spray bottle with the product name and directions. It does not include expiration date, and nor does it include the ingredients which i found to be rather fishy. The spray does smell strong, as in chemical strong which does worry me!

Pros:

  • Detangles
  • Lasts around 5 days
  • Efficient (less tail maintenance)
  • Repels dirt,  dust, shavings etc.
  • Waterproof
  • Easy application
  • Smells good

Cons:

  • Doesn’t add shine
  • Tail feels rough
  • Doesn’t last 15 days (as advertised)
  • No ingredients listed
  • No expiration date listed

Verdict:  The detangling lasts a a number of days, HOWEVER, it leaves the tail feels rough and doesn’t have fine, THEREFORE, I use it with the Ecolicious De-Stress Treatment to balance it out and make it shiny and soft. 

 

EASY WHITE (65AED/18USD):

I used this on a minor manure stain on Tofino’s body and it worked as expected. I sprayed it on the area, waited for about 15 seconds and wiped it with a sponge. I must admit that it smelt very strong (detergent), and the area did feel rough after using Easy White. I do believe this is due to the Hydrogren Peroxide as it is used as a detergent, but, it is known to dry out hair.

Moreover, I am not sure why Veredus does not write the full ingredients or expiration date on their products. Consumers have a right to know what their items consist of.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Removes stains
  • Doesn’t need water
  • Works fast

Cons:

  • Strong smell
  • Contains Hydrogren Peroxide (drying detergent)
  • No ingredients listed
  • No expiration date listed

Verdict: I personally would not purchase this product as I believe there are other products out there that can do just as good of a job, without the harsh scent or the coat drying factor.

I would like to thank eQuestri greatly once again for sending through these products! This is just my personal opinion and experience with them, thus, your horse may react differently, so please do not hesitate to visit their website at:
