Check out the First-Ever Vegan Burger Commercial to Air During the Super Bowl (SPOILER)!!!

This evening, the first-ever commercial advertising a plant-based burger will air during the Super Bowl for millions of viewers to see!

This 30-second spot humorously introduces Carl’s Jr.’s Beyond Famous Star Burger featuring the 100% plant-based Beyond Burger (just ask for no cheese or mayo to make it vegan)! If you don’t want to wait until the ad airs tonight, check it out below!

I must say, they did a great job with this! As the demand for plant-based options grows, companies like Carl’s Jr. are responding! This commercial will lead to countless people trying an animal-friendly burger and needless to say, I’M HERE FOR IT!

Fyve Skincare Review: Vegan Products with 5 Ingredients or Less!

Calling all natural skincare fans! I’ve discovered a new, vegan, and cruelty-free skincare line and I’m so excited to share it with you!

Fyve skincare products are made with just 5 natural ingredients or less! That’s a BIG deal! If you look at the ingredients list of typical store-bought skincare products, the list is a mile long and you can pretty much bet they’re not vegan and/or cruelty-free. That’s what makes FYVE different! As you know, I review A LOT of skincare… and I’ve learned the cleaner the products, the better my skin looks!

Alright, let’s jump into the reviews!

First up, is Fyve’s Facial Melting Cleanser. This oil-based cleanser comes in a glass bottle (yay for less plastic waste!) with a handy pump. It contains Sunflower, Safflower, Castor, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, and essential oils. That’s it!

All you do is rub this thin oil cleanser onto your dry skin, and then gently remove it with a damp wash cloth. Since this is an oil cleanser, it does not foam up or strip away natural oils. The essential oils used in this product are Tea Tree, Patchouli, and Ylang Ylang, which give it a natural, earthy, floral fragrance. It removed all of my makeup and left my skin feeling thoroughly cleaned without feeling tight or dry. I highly recommend using Fyve’s 100% Organic Bamboo Face Towel with this! It is super soft and adds a little exfoliation to your cleansing routine!

Next up, is Fyve’s Hydrating Face Oil made with Meadowfoam Oil  (deeply moisturizes and packed with antioxidants), Olive Squalene Oil (soothes, moisturizes, and protects skin), Evening Primrose Oil (anti-inflammatory used for acne and wrinkles), Cranberry Seed Oil (contains fatty acids and antioxidants), and Matricaria Flower extract (soothes and moisturizes skin). To be honest, I had not heard of a few of these ingredients before, but I’ll be the first to tell ya that they work!

After using the cleanser, I massaged 3-5 drops of this oil into my skin. Within minutes, my face was moisturized and noticeably less red. I naturally have a lot of pink in my skin, so I truly appreciate this anti-inflammatory effect!

This week, we got about a foot of snow, and with it, I got a terrible cold. I had to blow my nose about 1,000 times which left the skin around my nose extremely red and raw (you know how it is). Within 2-3 applications of this oil, I am thrilled to say my nose completely healed up! I REALLY love this stuff!

Last, is the Fyve Lip Balm Set that comes with 4 delicious balms in a cute metal tin. In all honesty, I wanted to give this away as a Christmas gift, but I try out each and every product to make sure my reviews are genuine. Really though, this little set is adorable and the flavors of these balms are SO GOOD! The Orange Tangerine has a sweet, citrus scent. The Cocoa Mint is perfect for this time of year with its refreshing chocolatey flavor, and the Grapefruit has a light, tangy citrus flavor. My favorite is the Coconut Lime… the lime flavor is so bright it instantly puts me in a good mood!

All of the balms except for the Cocoa Mint have a base of Sunflower oil, Coconut oil, and Candelilla wax. The Cocoa Mint’s base is Olive oil, Cocoa butter, Avocado and Candelilla wax. All of these balms are flavored with natural oils.

These lip balms glide on effortlessly and instantly melt into your lips. Like I said before, I was sick and a complete mess. My lips were SO chapped and cracked… until I started using these! I used a balm before bedtime and within a day or two, my lips were healthy and moisturized! You can bet your pretty little face I keep one of these with me at all times!

The Bottom Line:

Fyve 5 Ingredients or less products have quickly become some of my favorites! Using clean, animal-friendly products has become a passion of mine, and I can confidently say these products, from the packaging to the unique combinations of ingredients, are extremely high quality. I 100% recommend this brand and I truly hope you give the products a try! Please let me know if you do!

Grow Fragrace Air + Fabric Freshener (100% Plant-Based) Review

Hello again, Veganeers!

I’m thrilled to start doing product reviews again, and I’m so excited to share this product with you!

Now more than ever, people are looking for healthier options for everything from the food they eat (go vegan!), the products they put on their body, to household cleaning items. There’s absolutely no need to use harmful, toxic chemicals and that’s why I’m so impressed with Grow Fragrance Air + Fabric Freshener!

This product is Leaping Bunny Certified 🐇 and made with 100% Plant-based ingredients. This is SO important when it comes to protecting yourself and your family from skin and respiratory irritants found in typical air and fabric fresheners (Febreeze, who?!). Why put chemicals into your body if you don’t need to?

I am always concerned about what my little dogs are being exposed to, so if you have fur babies or human babies 👶 in your home, please pay attention to the products you are using!

Now, onto the actual review!

I am a huge fan of the sleek, minimal, nature-inspired packaging of this spray! I selected the limited- edition Pine Forest scent to make my home smell like a holiday paradise, and I must say I ADORE this scent! The pine scent is fresh, natural, and authentic (no Pinesol, here!). After a couple of sprays – shake it up before you use it- I wasn’t sure if I was in my living room watching Youtube or lost in a forest! Really though, this spray did a great job covering up doggie odors and even the smell from the garlic tomato sauce I ate for dinner (does this also refresh garlic breath?!). So, as far as air fresheners go, it works and I love it!

This product certainly freshens the air, but what about fabrics?

To find out, I sprayed one of my knee-high boots (faux leather with fabric lining) that I stopped wearing because, well, they smelled pretty funky. 3 sprays later, I can say this product definitely works as a fabric refresher! (My one smelly boot was jealous, so I sprayed that one, as well).

Grow Fragrance Air + Fabric Freshener really gets the job done and has become one of my favorite products! I will definitely continue to use this to add some holiday spirit to the air and to de-funkify gym shoes, dog beds, etc.

Thank you, Grow Fragrance, for sending me this product to review!

Happy Mother’s Day to All!

This Mother’s Day, I ask you to not only think about your own mom, but to think of all the mom’s on this planet that love their children. Whether you’re taking your mom out to brunch, you haven’t seen your mom in awhile, or even if they are no longer living, there is most certainly and undeniably a natural bond between mothers and their babies.

This Mother’s Day, consider the grieving diary cow that had her calf stolen from her only moments after given birth. Think of the mother goat that was slaughtered for meat and didn’t get to see her babies grow up. Think of the mother sheep that witnesses her children’s wool being ripped from their skin… the mother pig that watches her piglets waste away in filthy cages or get smashed against concrete for being “too small.” Think of the baby chickens that will miss out on a life with their mom and are ground up alive only seconds after being born.

All Mother’s love their children. All beings want and deserve to be loved. A cow, a pig, a chicken, a deer… they are no different than us.
