Hey! I haven’t written a review in quite some time, and I couldn’t have picked a better product to start again with!
If you’re on Instagram, chances are you’ve seen people showing off their bright, beautiful hair they created with Arctic Fox Hair Color. Of course, like everything I write about, the products are vegan and cruelty free!
Purple hair and I have had a longggg relationship. We go out, get sick of each other, and then start dating again. We’re pretty much soulmates. Purple Rain from Arctic Fox is my go-to shade. It is a deep, true purple shade, and best of all, it smells like grape!
I love these colors because you can dilute them with conditioner, and also leave them on for a few minutes for a hint of color. In the past, I would dilute the color and only leave on for less than 5 minutes to get the cutest lavender hue.
This time, I really went for it. I applied the color all over my hair, which is a light/medium ash blonde with highlights, and left it on for over an hour. I loved the results but wanted it to be even deeper, so I repeated the process again the next day, and couldn’t be happier!
My hair is a gorgeous purple shade and feels so healthy! This hair color, whether you’re vegan or not, is the best out there. With a bunch of vibrant shades to choose from to make your hair dreams come true, I highly, highly recommend Arctic Fox!
Long time, no see! It is great to be back at the product review game, and I have some awesome products to share with you!
You may have heard that Target just began carrying a new, vegan and CF line of skincare products… all priced at $20 or below! Versed Skincare offers everything you need for a gorgeous, healthy skin from serums and eye creams, to spot treatments, cleansers, lip oil and more!
Of course, I HAD to get to my local Target immediately! I instantly loved everything about this line from the simplistic yet eye-catching display and packaging, to the exciting range of products. (Did you see the Target display in my IG Story? Follow me!). First, I picked up the Zero-G Smoothing Eye Cream.
I’m a firm believer that if you’re old enough to (legally) drink, you’re old enough for an eye cream! This bad boy contains olive oil, shea butter, peptides, and algae extract to give your pretty little eyes some much-need TLC! Trust me, when it comes to this formula, she thicc but she absorbs quickly! Whether your undereyes are dry and need a little moisture, or you’re starting to notice some fine lines from age or from crying your eyes out because your ex stole your record collection, this eye cream will help address these issues (minus the ex) for a smoother, hydrated eye area. This eye cream has definitely worked its way into my skincare-lovin’ heart!
Next up, is the Stroke of Brilliance Brightening Serum made for dull and/or aging skin. Packed with Vitamin C, licorice Root, and turmeric, this serum is locked and loaded with pure pigmentation-fighting power! Like most people, I want to give the finger to acne scars and discoloration and want an even looking complexion! Use this serum before you moisturize to get glowing skin that just screams “Look At ME! I’m a healthy, radiant goddess and I didn’t have to spend millions to look like this!”
Does your face look dry and patchy under your makeup or in general? No? Only me? Well, I add a few drops of this booster into my foundation and serum for an instant kick of moisture. It helps me to not look like a crusty mess, and I’m here for it! Hyaluronic Acid is pretty much a miracle worker when it comes to tackling dehydrated skin. HA is “your body’s natural hydrator that’s able to hold 1000 times its weight in water” so you can bet your parched little face that you will be looking better in no time!
The Bottom Line:
All in all, I really love Versed! The products are clean, fragrance free , dye free, and of course, vegan and cruelty-free. They’re packed with effective ingredients and are available at a great price, so just about everyone can have high quality natural skincare. You really can’t ask for more! Well, I can actually ask for more because I want to try out more of their line, like the lip oil, cleansing balm, and eye gel! Have you tried Versed products? Let me know what to try next!
I have crazy curls. Curls so out of control that I often put them in a braid just so I didn’t need to deal with them (I’m busy saving animals, OK?!). No products really work for me… they weighed down my hair and made it look greasy and sad. I just wanted frizz free, bouncy curls! Is that too much to ask?
Well, until I found EVOLVh SmartCurl products, it was! They’re vegan, cruelty-free, organic, and really get the job done!
Their Love Your Curls Discovery Kit comes with the SmartCurl Wash and Conditioner, which I absolutely adore! This duo gets your hair clean and conditioned without stripping your natural oils (curly hair is naturally dry) and provides moisture without making your hair look or feel greasy.
It also comes with the SmartStart Leave-in Conditioner which is the first product I tried from this brand. It smells amazingly fresh and helps to strengthen and protect your beautiful strands while fighting frizz. The Ultimate Styling Lotion helps to define your curls so they’re light as a feather and lookin’ healthy!
I highly recommend this kit to try out the line!
Last, but definitely not least, is the Wonderbalm, which is appropriately called “Magic for Curls.” I work this light, fragrance free serum into my towel-dried hair and just let it get to work! I don’t heat style my hair, and with this, I don’t need to! My curls looks soft, shiny, and healthy… what more could you ask for?
New curl products will be released soon, and I can’t wait! Have you tried EVOLVh yet?

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend! It’s unusually warm in North Carolina today, so I was able to get some sunny pictures of the California Pure Naturals products I recently tried out!
So, a little info about this vegan and cruelty-free company:
“We are 100% committed to bringing you the safest, most potent and effective natural beauty products. We take the best of nature and combine it with our experience creating dermatologist grade formulas, for a superior, clean and pure skin care experience.”
First, I tried their Dual Action Scrub featuring California Pure Naturals’ Blackberry Antioxidant Complex. This multi-purpose scrub contains organic blackberry, kiwi, pomegranate, and grape to give your skin a burst of antioxidants to combat signs of aging, and walnut shell and papaya fruit extract to exfoliate away dullness.
This scrub smells fresh, fruity and delicious. The walnut shells are very fine, making this the perfect product to use for gentle exfoliation a few times per week. It leaves your face feeling and looking smooth and glowy without irritation. This scrub has definitely made its way into my heart (and skincare routine)!
Next, is the Renewal Facial Serum designed to nourish and hydrate your skin with their Blackberry Antioxidant Complex mentioned above, Hyaluronic Acid, and vitamins C and E. This lightweight, lotion-like serum, instantly absorbs into the skin, leaving it silky smooth. It has the same, faint berry scent as the scrub, and is the perfect moisturizer to use both day and night. This is another winner!
Last, is the Glow Facial Oil featuring the Black Berry Antioxidant complex, and Jojoba and Evening Primrose oil to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin for a brighter, healthy appearance. Just like the serum, this product absorbs into the skin right away, and gives a dewy glow while providing deep hydration. I used this product at night and woke up to gorgeous skin!
The Bottom Line
Don’t miss out on California Pure Naturals’ products! Fruit is great for your insides, and it’s also fabulous for your skin! The more natural your products, the healthier you will be and the better your skin will look. Don’t clog your pores or absorb harmful chemicals when there are natural, vegan products like these available! I absolutely adore this line of products and my skin looks healthy, hydrated, and happy! I really couldn’t ask for more! Please give these products a try and let me know what you think!
