I am writing to let you know that I have been using two of your products for about three weeks and am very pleased with them! I don’t like a lot of chemicals and lean toward natural ingredients. Your products appealed to me based on their natural ingredients and the purity of them!
I have been using Dilaura Naturals products for almost two years now. As a college student trying to find alternative facial soaps without the harmful chemicals, I found these products to be wonderful! I had terrible acne, and after using Dilaura’s soap bar and facial masks, my skin started to renew itself! I receive so many compliments on my skin now, and I feel 100% confident and satisfied that I can have clean skin without harsh chemicals. I love Dilaura Naturals!
LauraLemongrass ShampooOctober 9, 2014
I used to have thinning (I shed a lot of hair) and scratchy hair no matter what product/how expensive of a shampoo I bought. I saw their booth at the Amherst winter market and decided to try Jojoba shampoo. What a difference. And it’s been less than 2 weeks! It foams and cleans very well. Keep up the great job!
DinaraExfoliating Almond SoapOctober 9, 2014
All of the soaps smell so good! I bought a bar and it lasted so long! It really gives a good lather and I started using it as a shampoo replacement. Absolutely wonderful!
The skin on my face always gets very dry during the winter, and I always hated using the drug-store brand lotions because of how oily they felt, but a few months ago I bought the pomegranate face lotion from you and I haven’t stopped using it since. My skin feels great, the lotion is so light and yet very effective – definitely better than the drug-store brands and something I will definitely keep using, thanks.

DMFacial Cleansing Cream/Face WashOctober 9, 2014
I am such a fan of Dilaura Naturals products! My favorite is the pomegranate face lotion, which unlike brand name face lotions, does not leave my skin feeling dry and irritated – it leaves my skin feeling healthy and fresh! I love that I can now treat my skin with all natural products!
MichelleTea Tree Shampoo Antifungal AntibacterialOctober 9, 2014
I’ve been using Dilaura products for about 1 year now. My favorites are the nightime and daytime anti aging creams. They smell and feel amazing and give my skin a youthful glow. But the most important reason to use them is that they don’t have parabens or other chemicals found in most facial products. The prices are very fair as well. My kids are using the pomegranate cleanser and facial cream and they love it. (I’m in my 40’s so I need the anti-aging creams). The bar soaps also smell amazing and I feel so confident trying all Dilaura’s products because I know they are 100% natural.
