Ecolicious De-Stress Treatment REVIEW

As promised in my Ecolicious Equestrian haul, i will be doing a review on each of the products i purchased, starting with the DE-STRESS Intensive Restructuring & Detangling Treatment

So i managed to try this treatment out on Tofino’s very tangled tail and it was strange to spread the oil with my hands rather than using a spray as i am used to the ShowSheen Hair Polish & Detangler spray. I decided to switch to ecolicious after reading the ingredients, which are all natural unlike the showsheen spray. The De-Stress consists of the following: Certified Organic Hemp Oil, Coconut Oil, Apricot, Wheat Germ, Tea Tree, Sunflower Extract and Olive Oil

Now the showsheen does its job very well, however, one cannot compare natural products with chemical products, especially when used on live species whether it’s on our horses, our pets or ourselves (yes ecolicious products can be used on humans too. yay!).

When applying, you first shake the bottle (as natural ingredients clump up), then pour  little in the palm of your hands, rub your hands together and apply on horses tail/mane. I did need to do this around 3 times to cover the full tail. Once you apply it all over your horses tail, hold the tail and start brushing using a tail brush from the bottom and continue upwards.

I realized that Tofino’s tangles straightened rather quickly without much effort which i was happy about.

Once i brushed his mane and tail, they both became super soft and shiny! Here are some pictures below after the treatment (click to enlarge):

Pros:

  • Natural
  • Smells great
  • Easy use
  • Quick fix
  • Don’t need much of product for it to work
  • Shiny mane & tail (lasts approx. 4 days)
  • Less frizzy (yes, his mane gets frizzy due to high levels of humidity here)

Cons:

  • Not spray
  • Need to use hands (therefore, need to wash them after treatment)
  • Detangling doesn’t last more than a day for the tail only (but still shines)

Would i purchase again? YES
I really like what ecolicious equestrian products stand for and how eco friendly they are 🙂

Cons:

  • The conditioner and distress treatment are not filled to the top of the bottle as you can see above
  • There is no expiration date on the bottles, however, i did contact them and they replied quickly saying all products expire 1.5-2 years after being opened and left in cool space.
  • Packaging might not have been double checked as only two bottles had tape on them(the ones on the left). Lucky the others didn’t spill, nonetheless one can never be too sure
