Product Review: Lucent Globe

I love the concept of this company and I am 100% on board with the company’s vision and mission. 100% Australian-owned, Lucent Globe was founded with one goal. To provide Australians with products that are environmentally friendly and of the highest quality.

The identical twin founders were born and bred on the Gold Coast and have a passion for their community and environment. Through their travels, they witnessed the horrible pollution issues around the world and wondered how they could make a difference. So, by starting small, they launched a product that is used in our everyday lives but is a huge source of plastics and pollution – laundry and dishwashing detergents.

I tested both the Dishwashing detergent sheets (fresh lemon fragrance) 80 loads per box and the Laundry detergent sheets (Ocean breeze fragrance) 80 washes per box. The cost is reasonable, at $28.49 per box or, if purchased in bulk, discounts are applied to make it as little as 30 cents per wash.

Overall, the dishwashing detergent worked very well, even on greasy pots and pans, and the fragrance was lovely and not overpowering. The laundry detergent I found needed more sheets than the recommended dosage, as I do have sporty teenagers and their clothes after training are pretty revolting.

I took these products away on a family camping trip and they were extremely convenient to travel with. Whilst I appreciate the packaging is made from 100% recyclable cardboard, this was a bit of an issue when packing and unpacking.

By the end of our camping trip, the box was extremely damaged and, as I kept the laundry sheets with the “dirty clothes” basket, the box inevitably got wet and mushy with damp rash shirts or beach towels being thrown into the washing basket.

Overall, if you’re looking for an effective and environmentally friendly solution to washing, I would recommend these awesome Lucent Globe products. On the next camping trip, I’ll just make sure they are stored in a dry bag or carry box.
