Reviews:

The holidays are here and Soapbox Soaps has the perfect gift for everyone on your list! If you’re not familiar with this company, check out my previous reviews of their fantastic soaps and haircare, here.

Ok, first let’s talk about Soapbox Soap’s Liquid Hand Soaps. These quite possibly may be the most luxurious hand soaps you will ever use! The creamy consistency easily works into a rich lather that thoroughly cleanses your hands while adding moisture. Your skin is left feeling clean, soft and smelling absolutely amazing! These hand soaps make an awesome hostess gift to bring along to all of your holiday get togethers!

The Coconut Milk & Sandlewood Deep Moisture Liquid Hand Soap smells like a tropical paradise! Sweet coconut milk with woodsy sandalwood create an aromatic experience that will make you forget that its snowing outside! I would wear this as perfume if I could! Coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe vera do a wonderful job hydrating the skin, making this the perfect hand soap to use during the winter months when your hands might need a little help!

The Pomegranate & Plum Restoring Moisture Liquid Hand Soap is a fun and fruity soap that I’m sure everyone on your list will love! Its sweet and citrusy notes create an uplifting fragrance that is sure to brighten your day while shea butter and aloe vera provide moisture. I love this soap!

The Sea Mineral & Blue Iris Gentle Moisture Bar Soap (and all of their bar soaps) are perfect stocking stuffers! This one has such a fresh scent that you can’t help but to slow down, close your eyes, and imagine you’re at the beach! The scent is a combination of floral notes from blue iris and refreshing sea minerals that truly makes you feel like you’re on a tropical getaway! Yes, please! Don’t worry, this bar lathers up nicely and shea butter keeps your skin from drying out!

The Bottom Line

I am a huge fan of Soapbox Soaps! Their products are high quality, smell AMAZING, and they have an amazing mission. With every bar soap that is purchased, they will donate a bar soap to people in need! How amazing is that?! It is the season of giving, after all! I highly recommend this hand soaps and bar soaps for hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, you name it!

Happy Holidays!!!

Reviews

Vegan Police Shop creates adorable clothing and accessories that proudly spread the vegan message!

Their “Ferocious Vegan” T-shirt was the first vegan shirt I ever bought and I still love it to this day! It comes in Men’s and Women’s sizes and it is the perfect gift for any vegan on your shopping list!

The Vegan Tote bag is large multipurpose accessory for vegans on the go! It is great as a gym bag, school bag, beach bag… or just anywhere you want to promote veganism and your love of animals! It’s made of a soft cotton material and you can choose the color of ink that you want! *The style pictured above is not currently in their shop, but the “I Don’t Eat Pals” design is!

The No Animals Harmed Recycled Cotton Lunch Bag is AWESOME! It says “No Animals Were Harmed In The Making Of This Lunch.” You’re vegan and doing great things for the animals and the planet… You should give yourself a little pat on the back every now and then! This drawstring lunch bag is the perfect way to do that! This bag is soft and has more than enough room to bring some veggies and an entire container of hummus for lunch, along with other stereotypical vegan lunch items! It has a drawstring and velcro at the top to make sure all of your snacks stay secure. I love this bag so much!

And… Who doesn’t like buttons? Stick these on you backpacks, scarves, shirts… you name it! So cute!

The Bottom Line

I highly recommend these items from Vegan Police Shop! They’re high quality, freakin’ adorable and make the perfect gifts for the holiday! Head on over to their shop to see all of the fun designs that they have for sale!

Company: V-Dog

Product: Wiggle Biscuits

Reviews:

Dogs can thrive on a vegan diet just like humans can! V-Dog makes high-quality plant-based dog food and treats that will make your dog’s tastebuds happy… and you can feel good about giving your dog with a good, clean diet.

img_6983

These Wiggle Biscuits are absolutely adorable! They’re small, crunchy heart-shaped treats that contain all natural ingredients that are great for your little fur baby!

Peanut butter provides protein, fiber and biotin, and flaxseed provides omega-3s, vitamin E and is an anti-inflammatory. Banana packs these little biscuits with potassium and electrolytes and coconut oil helps your dog’s skin stay healthy and adds Vitamin K and choline!

img_6980

Right out of the bag, you can smell the cinnamon which really helps to reduce stinky dog breath! You can’t get all of these benefits in an everyday dog treat! These are truly special and your dog deserves the best!

The Bottom Line

I have been a huge fan of V-Dog for awhile now. If you haven’t already, check out my review of their Kinder Kibble and Breathbones (the green bones pictured above).

Our dogs are part of the family and deserve to have tasty treats that not only taste great, but helps then live healthier lives. My dogs go crazy over these treats… so crazy that I couldn’t get a good picture this time around!  I highly recommend V-Dog treats and look forward to hearing how much your dog loves them too!

Peace, Joy, & Sanity Gift Set

The Phoenix (when you need to rise for the ashes, yet again) Bubbles for Bath or Shower

Reviews: It is that time of year when you have a billion things to do and your nerves might be wearing a bit thin. Don’t worry! Not Soap, Radio’s Peace, Joy & Sanity Gift Set is exactly what you need! (Who says you can’t buy a little something for yourself, huh?)

This gift set comes with 3 travel-sized hand/body lotions and 3 travel-sized bubble bath/body washes. The bubble bath/body washes work into a nice, rich lather that leaves your skin feeling clean, soft, and lightly fragranced. The lotions absorb quickly into the skin and also leave your skin smelling fabulous! The scents are absolutely mouth-watering and sure to help you unwind! (Nobody said you can’t have a little wine with that bubble bath too, did they?!)

The “To sleep full of sweet dreams (without waking up in a mad panic at 3am)” scent contains chamomile and lavender to calm your overworked mind and smells like lavender and clementine, which is just so so nice! It truly will help you get a (relatively) peaceful sleep!

The “Liquid Freud (when you need to turn up the volume on your inner voice of reason)” scent is made to balance your emotions and act as a little pick me up. The coconut milk, mango and vanilla scent definitely makes you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation… who wouldn’t feel better after that?!

“When life gives you one too many lemons (and you’ve misplaced your happy place…)” is a must try! The fresh, bright scent of lemons and sweet sugar naturally makes you feel more optimistic about life… It reminds me of summertime and lemonade and just generally makes me feel happy!

“The Phoenix (when you need to rise for the ashes, yet again)” is another fun, refreshing bubble bath/body wash that will help you exit the bath/shower with a brand new outlook! The super luxurious lather and intoxicating scent of persimmon and plum are exactly what you need to get back on your feet and attack the day head-on! It doesn’t hurt that your skin will smell like a million bucks!

The Bottom Line

I’m a huge fan of Not Soap, Radio’s bath and body products! They’re vegan, cruelty-free, and have the best scents out there! I love the names and how they are made to really make you feel better. These products would make the perfect gift for just about everyone on your shopping list, or just go ahead and treat yourself (you deserve it… you little badass, you!)

Head on over to Not Soap, Radio’s website to check out these products and all of the fantastic gift sets that they have available! While you’re at it, check out my previous review of their hair/body fragrance that is also a fav of mine!

Reviews:

Smoothies just got even healthier with Organic Living Superfoods’ Supergreen Smoothie Mix! All you do is add a tablespoon of this nutrient-packed powder into your smoothie and you have a powerhouse of good-for-you goodness in a glass! This mix contains hemp protein powder (that contains all of the amino acids and omega-3 and omega-6, just to name a few!), chia seeds (for vitamins, minerals, and fiber), moringa powder (which contains amino acids, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds), and turmeric root powder (a powerful anti-inflammatory properties). It also contains spirulina, wheatgrass powder and maca root powder for energy, nutrients, cleansing and even more antioxidant power! Not convinced that this is great for you yet? Click the link to learn about the organic superfoods that make this smoothie mix so amazing!

As healthy as it obviously is for you, it doesn’t taste overtly healthy! We’ve all had those green smoothies that taste like they blended up some dead leaves from the backyard… not this smoothie mix! It adds a pleasant “earthy” flavor to your smoothies, which you could easily cover up with fruit, veggies, juices or sweeteners if you chose to. I really like the flavor of this mix and how it makes me feel! Super nutritious smoothies are the perfect way to start the day, an excellent post workout snack, or just a mid-day pick me up. You’re going to LOVE this smoothie mix!

If you’re an avid coffee drinker like I am, you’ve probably contemplated switching to a healthier alternative at some point. Well, it is MUCH easier to that when you have a supercharged drink like this Pomegranate Acai Matcha Antioxi-T Blend! If you don’t know much about Matcha, think of it as a very condensed form of green tea.

“Matcha powder has 137 times more antioxidants then regularly brewed green tea and contains the nutritional content of 10 cups!  It is rich in fiber, vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium. Matcha enhances mood, energy and concentration.”

This particular matcha mix is extra special because it contains pomegranate and acai, which are both superfoods in their own right. This mix contains coconut palm sugar which adds just the right amount of sweetness! All you do it whisk some of this matcha blend in warm water, and you have a nice and healthy way to get energized! I LOVE this stuff!

Forget Figgy pudding this holiday season… try these Coconut Fig Superfood Squares! These chewy snacks are the “grown up” version of Fig Newtons. Coconut, cacao, and vanilla amp up the figgy flavor and goji and camu camu powder make this the perfect dessert-like snack!

Oooh baby, go get yourself a glass of water, you’re gonna need it! This Spicy Santa Fe Trail Mix is SPICY and is unlike any snack I’ve had before! This mix includes hot chile cashews, spicy chipotle pistachios, sunflower seeds, and sweet & spicy pumpkin seeds! Just when you think you just can’t take the heat, white mulberries, sprouted pecans and tamari almonds give you a burst of sweetness and flavor! If you like spicy foods, you will LOVE this trail mix!

If setting your mouth on fire with spicy snacks just isn’t your thing, and you’d much prefer something rich and chocolatey, the Dark Chocolate Coconut Chunks are sure to please! Sweet and crispy strips of coconut covered in super smooth dark chocolate, I mean, what’s not to love? Since dark chocolate is full of antioxidants and coconut contains fiber and healthy fats, this snack is nutritious, decadent, and able to satisfy even the strongest chocolate cravings!

I’ve never been one to gravitate towards pecans… they were just never that exciting to me. However, these Raw Sprouted Cinnamon Pecans are absolutely delicious! They’re crunchy, sweet (but not too sweet),  have just the right amount of cinnamon. Pecans are full of vitamins and minerals and also help with digestion. What a great snack!

The Bottom Line

Organic Living Superfoods makes exciting and unexpected flavored snacks that are exceptionally good for you! Whether you’re looking for something to satisfy a sweet tooth or chocolate craving, or maybe even something spicy or energizing, this company has something for you! There’s no need to eat junk that makes you feel bad when there are fantastic, healthy options like these! I highly recommend them!
