Collective Action Apparel

Hi friends!

I’ve just opened a new shop and I thought I’d share it with you!

Here in the United States, we are still required to wear masks in most places and so are students when schools start opening back up. I wanted to create fun and interesting masks that people would actually want to wear.

My shop is called Collection Action Apparel and the tagline is: Inspired by Nature / Designed for the Greater Good.

In my shop you will find some really fun designs, from animals and nature to food and Halloween-themes!

I will be doing a weekly giveaway on IG! Follow here ❤️

Thank you so much for the support! Please let me know which design is your favorite! I add new ones every week!

Fyve: Vegan Beauty Products made with 5 ingredients!

Happy Sunday!

Today, I’d like to share some fabulous vegan and cruelty-free products from Fyve!

Like the name suggests, Fyve’s all natural bath, body, beauty, and home products are made with just 5 plant-powered ingredients! This woman-owned business is Leaping Bunny certified and a member of the 1% For The Planet Organization, which means they protect animals and the planet! Can’t beat that!

Let’s jump right into the skincare products!

Fyve Facial Cleansing Oil

Fyve’s Facial Cleansing Oil is the the perfect products to remove makeup, dirt, and oil without stripping your skin. Sunflower, safflower, castor, and camellia seed oils easily dissolve makeup and draw out impurities from your pores while providing moisture. I use this at night and I’m left with clean, beautifully hydrated skin!

Fyve Hydrating Face Oil

Next up, is the Hydrating Face Oil. If you’re in the market for an all natural beauty oil to add to your skincare routine, this is it! Meadowfoam seed, olive squalene, evening primrose, and cranberry seed oils combine to deliver soft, nourished skin while providing anti-inflammatory effects, anti-oxidants, and protection against sun and pollutant damage.

I mix 1-2 drops into my foundation for a nice, dewy glow and also use this at night to awaken to hydrated, healthy skin. For a full list of ingredient benefits, click the product link above!

Fyve Bamboo Clay Mask

On social media, it seems like face masks are the trendy thing to do, but they really deserve a permanent place in your skincare routine! The Bamboo Clay Face Mask contains Kaolin clay that purifies your pores as well as natural bamboo and cranberry seed powders that exfoliate away dead skin cells. With just a few uses, you will notice a clearer, smoother complexion!

Fyve Lip Balm Set

An item that is often overlooked or goes unmentioned in people’s skincare routine is lip balm! Fyve’s Lip Balm Set includes four deliciously flavored balms in a cute, reusable tin.

Coconut Lime, Orange Tangerine, Cocoa Mint, and Grapefruit lemon balms deliver a burst of natural flavors with hydration and shine, thanks to plant-based oils and waxes.

Did you know that your lips lose moisture at night? It’s a good idea to incorporate a lip balm into your nightly skincare routine! These are genuinely one of my favorite brands of lip balm, and I always have at least one on my night stand and in my bag. I love these so much!

Next, check out the body care products!

Fyve Lemongrass Body Butter

If you love a good, thick body moisturizer, look no further! The Lemongrass Body Butter is ultra-hydrating and has a gorgeous, uplifting citrusy scent! Avocado oil delivers Vitamin E to protect against damage while coconut oil provides deep hydration. I love to throw this on after a shower for soft, smooth skin. I even use this overnight on my exceptionally dry feet. I work in a good amount of the body butter and pop on some socks as I sleep, and they’re buttery soft when I wake up!

Fyve Vanilla Lavender Body Oil

Listen, it is no secret that life has been stressful lately. It is important to practice self care, even if you only have a few minutes to spare. The Vanilla Lavender Body Oil is luxurious and simple way to treat yourself. This oil contains coconut oil, camellia seed oil, and argan oil to hydrate the driest of skin. Pure therapeutic grade essential oils of Lavender, Ylang ylang, and vanilla oil help to calm your nerves and recharge for whatever the day throws at you!

These products were gifted to me by Fyve, Inc. as part of its Fyve Tribe Ambassador program. As always, my thoughts and opinions are my own. This post does not include any affiliate links.

I highly recommend Fyve for people interested in high-quality products that are animal and eco-friendly. Have you tried any? Let me know!

Arctic Fox Hair Color is AMAZING!

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!

VERSED Vegan & Cruelty-Free Skincare Review

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.

Versed 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!

Versed Stroke of Brilliance Brightening Serum

Last, I tried out the Hydration Station Booster with HA to give my dry AF face some love!

Versed Hydration Station Booster with HA

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!

Have Crazy Curls? Try the SmartCurl Line from EVOLVh!

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!

EVOLVh Love Your Curls Discovery Kit

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!

EVOLVh Wonderbalm

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?
