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!

Clean Kiss Organics – Relaxing Bath Soak and Luxurious Hair Mask Reviews

Company: Clean Kiss Organics

“Clean Kiss has a solution for health-conscious women, men and teenagers that doesn’t compromise quality or effectiveness while offering a completely natural and chemical-free alternative for body, face, hair and home.”

Products:

Lavender Rosemary “Make That Kiss Last” Relaxing Bath Soak

Coconut Kisses Rosemary Peppermint Replenishing Hair Mask

Reviews:

If you need to relax at the end of a long day or the world is just driving you crazy, Clean Kiss Organics’ Lavender Rosemary “Make That Kiss Last” Relaxing Bath Soak is for you! I’m telling ya, run a hot bath and drop in some of this beautifully aromatic bath soak and just let the stress melt away! Why not go all out and light some candles and maybe even pour yourself a glass of wine. Why not? You deserve it!

This bath soak contains mineral salts and epsom salts to detoxify and soothe your muscles. It is naturally fragranced with lavender, rosemary and peppermint essential oils which creates a calming and refreshing aromatherapy experience. After just a few minutes in the bath, I felt SO much better about life (seriously, I’ve been STRESSED!).

You get quite a bit of product in this 500g jar, and you only need about 2 scoops (it comes with a cute wooden scoop) to enjoy the floral and herbal scent. This is a definite winner and I look forward to using this on the crazy days ahead!

The Coconut Kisses Replenishing Hair Mask is exactly what my dry, color-treated hair needed! Its super thick formula coats your strands and gives it a major hydration boost. You can use it as a quick conditioning treatment after you shampoo or you can leave it on for longer. Heat will make it soak into your hair, so you can use a hair dryer or a hot towel to really get your strands back into shape!

I massaged the mask into my clean hair and then covered it with a shower cap. I let it do its thing as I enjoyed the Lavender Bath Soak. I really felt like I was at a fancy spa! It was absolutely fantastic!

The mask left my hair super soft and much shinier, thanks to the 2 main ingredients; coconut oil and shea butter. The scents from the Rosemary and Peppermint essential oils are subtle and refreshing, and you also get notes of coconut and shea to create a sweet, uplifting fragrance. I truly enjoyed using it!

The Bottom Line

Clean Kiss Organics creates naturally effective products for your body, face, hair and home that are high-quality, chemical-free, and good for you! They are vegan and cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny Certified), gluten-free, and come in sustainable packaging. How awesome is that!?

The Lavender Bath Soak is absolute perfection! I highly recommend it to anyone that needs to relax and spend a little “me” time (who doesn’t?!).

The Coconut Kisses Hair Mask is a luxurious hair treatment that will make even the driest strands (like mine) look and feel healthier. This product will definitely be incorporated into my hair routine! Highly recommended!

Thank you, Clean Kiss Organics for sending me these products to review! Head on over to their website to check out all of their products! Let me know how you like them!

Products:

Apres Sun Body Polish (8 oz/226g) –  $32.00 USD

Apres Sun Body Oil (8 oz/226g) – $29.00 USD

Apres Sun Body Soak (8 oz/226g) –  $32.00 USD

Reviews:

Moon Luv  is a new company that creates cruelty-free, vegan products that are truly luxurious and unique. Their raw ingredients are sourced from all over the world, and each product line features a specific crystal. The Apres Sun Summer Collection (meaning After the Sun) features Citrine, a crystal known to carry the power of the sun. Admittedly, I am not a crystal expert, but I have always been interested in them. After a little research, I found that Citrine comforts and energizes while turning negative thoughts into positive ones… How cool is that?!

The Apres Sun Body Polish is a perfect scrub to use before you hit the beach to tan. It's vibrant yellow color and bright fruity scent is perfect for summer! This truly special scent smells of pink grapefruit and mango, and possibly a little bit of sunshine!  The scrub is made of cornmeal, which is a very gentle, yet effective exfoliant. This body scrub left my skin feeling soft and smooth. Cocoa butter, almond oil, and shea butter work together to hydrate the skin to prepare it for some time in the sun!

The Apres Sun Body Oil is made to be used under your SPF. It contains raspberry seed oil that has a natural SPF of 28-40, while Shea oil, Buriti and Ucaaba oils moisturize and nourish. This oil is thin and is easily massaged into the skin. It leaves a sheen, which is perfect for showing off those arms and legs you worked so hard for all year (push ups and squats for days, am I right?).

The Apres Sun Body Soak is an awesome, unique product. Have you ever soaked in a tub full of crystals? I couldn't say that I had, until trying this. This body soak has the same bright scent as the body polish, maybe even a little bit stronger. It contains Citrine crystals and aloe, making it the perfect after-sun skin treatment. While you're soaking, you can't help but feel happy and energized while your skin is softened and pampered.

I was also given a sample of Moon Luv Hibiscus Coconut Monoi Bath Soak, which I must admit, was one of my favorite bath products to date! The scent of Gardenias, Hibiscus, Lilac, Jasmine, and Coconut fill your bathtub and calm your senses. This soak contains Rose Quartz, the stone of love, beauty, and fertility. Dead Sea Salt and strawberries detox and tone the skin while the sophisticated floral fragrance melts your worries away!

The Bottom Line

Moon Luv Vegan Skin Care is a high quality, luxury skin care line. Their products are made with ingredients that you really don't see everywhere, and the scents are truly special. The frosted glass packaging of the body polish and soaks, along with the metallic bronzey-gold lids, look fantastic on top of your vanity or counter.

The Apres Sun Summer Collection is the perfect line to nourish and protect your skin after summertime sun exposure! I recommend these products to anyone that is looking for luxurious ingredients, bright summery scents, and crystals to energize your senses!

Thank you, Moon Luv Vegan Skin Care, for sending me these products to review!

Glow Detoxifying Scrub (4 oz – $12.95 USD)

Om Organic Whipped Body Butter (4 oz – $12.95 USD)

Sublime Natural Deodorant (2 oz – $9.95 USD)

Reviews:


Organic Sugar, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Organic Essential Oils make up the all natural Glow Detoxifying Scrub. This scrub is the perfect way to relax and unwind while making your skin soft and smooth. The scent is bright and herbal, with basil being the prominent scent. Olive Oil is a wonderful moisturizer so you won’t need lotion or anything else when you step out the shower. The sugar makes this an abrasive yet not too rough exfoliator that will get rid of dead skin cells, old sunless tanners, you name it!


If you enjoy authentic floral scents, you will love the Om Organic Whipped Body Butter! The scent of Geranium and Juniper Berry will make you feel like you’re running through a garden, while Organic Shea Nut Butter hits you with powerful hydration! The texture is light and airy, and I liked using this product to seal in moisture right after the shower. This body butter made my skin looking healthy and dewy, and it was even hydrating enough for my dry-as-heck feet!


The Sublime Natural Deodorant is made for sensitive skin and is baking soda free. I have tried natural deodorants in the past that have irritated my skin, so I was excited to try this one out. The scent is Key Lime and Bergamot which you will smell throughout the day when you use this product. It is a nice and pleasant citrusy surprise! The texture is similar to a balm that melts into your skin when you massage it into your armpits. Shea Nut Butter and Coconut Oil moisturize while Arrowroot Powder absorbs odors. This deodorant was effective for me, and I only noticed the slightest bit of funkiness at the end of the day. I will definitely continue to use this!

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for all natural, vegan and cruelty-free products that are sustainably made, smell awesome and actually work, ahimsa Essentials is the brand for you. I love that they are fragranced with essential oils and the packaging is as cute as can be! I highly recommend these products and would love to hear your feedback about them! Head on over to ahimsa Essentials website and check out their range of products!

Thank you so much to ahimsa Essentials for these products to review!

Keep Me Fresh Natural Deodorant (4 oz jar – $16.99 USD)

Reviews:

I don’t know about you, but I use A LOT of hand sanitizer. Studies have shown that store bought brands contain ingredients that are NOT good for you! Ugh! The Germs Be Gone Natural Hand Sanitizer + Yoga Mat Cleaner is a natural germ killer that contains Witch Hazel and essential oils of Tea Tree, Clove, Cinnamon, Lemon, Rosemary, and Eucalyptus. I absolutely LOVE the scent of this product… It has subtle notes of all of the essential oils listed above to create a truly unique fragrance blend! I like to throw this bottle into my bag and use it throughout the day. Of course, I can’t see if it is actually killing germs, but my hands do feel clean after using it. This product is also a yoga mat sanitizer. I have been needing a reason to start doing yoga again, and this just might be it!

The Citrus Dream Body Mist is a delicious blend of Sweet Orange and Tangerine essential oils blended with Ylang Ylang and Vanilla. It’s fresh and fruity and the sweet notes of vanilla make this the perfect summertime scent! It is not overpowering in the slightest bit, it just gives you a light fragrance that can be reapplied throughout the day to lift your spirits and smell fabulous!

The Stress Be Gone Roll-On Aromatherapy Relief Oil comes in a convenient roller ball that you can take anywhere! This stress fighting blend of scents includes essential oils of Organic Lavender, Organic Blood Orange, Organic Ylang Ylang, Organic Patchouli, Organic Bergamot, and Organic Grapefruit. When you roll this product on, your senses are instantly calmed by the soothing floral notes and uplifted by the bright citrus oils. If you’re new to aromatherapy, this product would be a great place to start since lavender has been used to help people relax since forever! *** The white dots are actually covering teeth marks that my dog Bubbles wanted to contribute! She stole the bottle as I was taking pictures of the other products! Teeth marks are not included when you buy this item!

I’m sure you have heard about all of the health issues associated with everyday deodorants. Parabens have been linked to cancer and aluminum has been associated with Alzheimer’s. Needless to say, if you haven’t already it’s time to ditch your mass produced deodorant!  The Keep Me Fresh Natural Deodorant is made of all natural ingredients to keep you feeling and smelling fresh as a daisy! Arrowroot Powder, Baking Soda, Bentonite Clay, and Activated Charcoal work together to help your pits release toxins while keeping them dry (although this is not an antiperspirant), and essential oils of Lavender, Tea Tree, and Grapefruit leave you smelling bomb.com! It is important to remember that sweating is NATURAL and HEALTHY! Typical deodorants clog up your pores and don’t allow you to release toxins, in simple terms, they are not good for you! Please make the switch to a natural deodorant like this one!

The Bottom Line

Apothepurity makes pure products that are vegan and cruelty-free. The packaging is fantastic and the formulations are effective and gentle. I will absolutely keep these products in my skincare and hygiene routine, and look forward to trying more products from this brand. Head on over to Apothepurity and try out some of their wonderful products! Let me know what you think! Use code “VTH20” for 20% off of your order!
