Ology Products from Walgreens [Review]

I recently tried some of the wonderful products from the Ology line that Walgreen's offers.
 
The products I choose specifically met the needs of my family.
 

The first product I chose was the Ology Soft and Strong Facial Tissue.
The facial tissue us made from renewable sugar cane husk and bamboo. Whitened with H2O2, a non-chlorine based bleach. It is also biodegradable and comes in a two-ply.
 
I was impressed at the softness of the tissue and how well it held up to my children's torture as they blew their noses. I like the it's Tree Free :)
 
The next item that I absolutely love is the All Purpose cleaner (Lemon and Lavender).
The cleaner containers no harsh chemicals and I love how it smells.
 
 
The bottle is made from 100% post consumer materials. The cleaner cleans all the grime from my stove and my counters.
 
The next product I chose was a necessity.. Toilet Paper !
 
Another 100% Tree Free product! The packaging says Soft and Strong, and it doesn't disappoint.
The bath tissue is 2 ply and doesn't seem to leave traces of lint behind.
My husband likes to have 1 ply in the house but hasn't complained about this new brand.
 
The last product I chose, is not one I'm particularly fond of.
There isn't anything wrong with it, but my hair and the conditioner don't get along!
 
The Ology Volumizing & Softening Conditioner Grapefruit & Eucalyptus is safe for Colored hair and is Sulfate Free. It is also Plant/Mineral based and doesn't contain dyes or artificial fragrances.
The scent is wonderful and soothing. But my hair feels limp and looks heavy after using it. I have attempted the conditioner multiple times and always get the same result.
My hair does not get along with this product.
 
All in all, 3 out of the 4 Ology Products I tried were a success.
You can check out the Ology line here -> through the Walgreens Website

I was sent a Walgreen’s gift card for the purposes of obtaining Ology products to review. No other compensation was offered or received. No suggestions or requests to select specific products within the Ology line were offered. I was in no way obligated to write a positive review and all opinions are mine and mine alone.

  2. I had no idea that wags had an eco-friendly line. I didn't realize that "paper" products could be made without trees, very cool.
