Review | CLONE Solid Shamppo + Mini Rant

Today I'm going to talk to you about a brand that is quite new to me... And I bet you haven't heard about it ether!



CLONE by Ana is a Portuguese brand, that sells all natural soaps, perfumes, bath bombs and shower stuff.  And they have a lot of stores all over the country, but mainly on the northern cities. It's basically the same concept as Lush.

A few weeks ago, I ran out of shampoo -- Usually I use Lush NEW Shampoo Bar -- and I was talking to a friend about it and she told me about this store and that she had bought a soap that had a sponge inside. It sounded super cool, and it got me so curious that I went to visit the store.
I ended up buying a shampoo bar, that smells super good. But that's the only thing I know about this green shampoo bar. I don't know the ingredients, or what is it good for. They had other options but the girl that worked there didn't really knew the difference. It's a really nice shampoo,  I'll give you that.  And hey, it's a Portuguese brand, and I like to support nacional brands!






This shampoo lathers really nicely and I just need to rub it a few times to have enough foam to wash my hair. It smells like super nice. Like fresh, clean laundry. It's super good! I was impressed. 

So I went back to that same store. The other time the girl told me that they have some argon oil soap that's super moisturizing and that is super good. And I wanted to buy a gift for my mom so I was thinking about getting that. So there I was in store, smelling all the super nice smelling soaps, when I noticed that a few of them had a little tag with ingredients and some other information. And there it was clearly written: Made in Spain. WTF. I was super disappointed when I saw this. I mean, there I was happy to support this brand, excited that I had found a Portuguese brand that I am actually enjoying, and that I could endorse, and their products are not even made in Portugal. By the name, I was picturing a lady named Ana making and selling soap on her free time, whose brand grew and grew...
I asked the lady and she said that they are in fact made in Spain and that they only re-sell them.

This was kind of disappointing. I mean, it's not even cheaper than Lush, Lush has more variety and their staff can actually help you. This doesn't mean that I will stop spending my money there, But for me costumer experience is really important for me. And to if am giving my money to a brand, that's not truly a Portuguese brand, I rather give my money to a vegan, cruelty-free brand, who's values I believe in.

  3. Não conhecia a marca. É pena que não fabriquem em Portugal e que tenham essas falhas de informação, eu também valorizo e muito a lista de ingreditentes e as coisas preto no branco
    Por onde anda a Sofia?

  4. Deve ter sido uma desilusão! Até porque quando comecei a ler o post estava super entusiasmada por ser uma marca portuguesa e depois afinal são feitos em Espanha, já não é a mesma coisa xD

  6. Oh wow! I'm glad it worked, but that's something it's made in Spain & not Portugal. Good for you in supporting local products. So many things are made elsewhere nowadays.

  8. Não conheço a marca mas entendo a desilusão, ainda por cima é um coisa um bocado inexplicável porque em Portugal produzimos muito sabonete de boa qualidade, temos essa tradição.

  17. E provavelmente haverá mais alguns produtos no mercado nas mesmas circunstâncias...
    Desapontante de facto...
    De qualquer forma, uma marca que não conhecia...

  18. Realmente é uma desilusão, pelos valores que a Lush defende mais vale comprar os produtos da marca :/ Se bem que o champô parece ótimo!

  19. Boa tarde
    Conheço bastante bem a marca e lamento a situacao .Esclareço que de facto a marca ė portuguesa e isso não quer dizer que os produtos sejam fabricados a 100% em Portugal. Uma grande percentagem dos produtos ė fabricado em Portugal e damos sempre preferência ao fabrico nacional. De qualquer forma fica desde já convidada a um encontro com a criadora da marca , para poder esclarecer as suas curiosidades. Deixo o contacto telefónico para poder agendar no momento mais oportuno. Acredite que vai ficar surpreendida pela positiva . Acredite que apostamos numa qualidade de Luxo a um preco muito acessivel , somos esforçados e queremos melhorar. Agradecemos a oportunidade. Um beijinho Marta 916972728
