SMOOTH CRIMINÁLE Body Scrub

HOSTILE TAKEOVER Body Oil

Review:

Ooh Baby, it’s cold outside… and you know my skin is as dry as a bone! If your skin is anything like mine, the second the weather drops it gets extremely dry, red, and cracked (not cute). I’m always up for trying new vegan and cruelty-free products that can help, so I was very excited to try out this body scrub and body oil from Swift Heist Beauty!

Using a moisturizing body scrub is a sure-fire way to keep your skin looking smooth and glow-y! The SMOOTH CRIMINÁLE Body Scrub is a sugar scrub that gently polishes away dead skin cells to reveal radiant skin. This scrub rinses away easily and has a gorgeous coconut and rose scent that leaves your skin delicately fragranced. The star ingredients of this scrub are coconut oil, shea butter, and sweet almond oil, so you know your skin’s going to feel great!

I used this scrub all over my body, including my insanely dry feet (I honestly don’t know how feet can be as dry as mine and not fall off!). I’m happy to report that with just one use, my feet were softer, smoother, and felt more comfortable! Goodbye dull looking skin!

After using the body scrub, I slathered on the summery, lime-scented HOSTILE TAKEOVER Body Oil. This body oil deeply moisturizes and improved my poor, struggling winter skin. I love that it has a bright lime scent that helped me forget that it is below freezing temperatures outside.  This body oil has a thin consistency that quickly and easily absorbs into the skin, giving you instant hydration and a healthy looking sheen, thanks to Grape seed oil, Camellia Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, and Aloe! I’m in love!

The Bottom Line

Swift Heist Beauty offers high quality, beautifully scented products with natural ingredients that deliver fast results!

The SMOOTH CRIMINÁLE Body Scrub is the perfect way to scrub away dead skin cells for fresh, smooth looking skin!

If you have desperately dry skin like I do, I highly suggest ditching the lotions and creams. Just go straight for some body oil! I’m not exaggerating when I say that my skin looked so SOmuch better after using the HOSTILE TAKEOVER Body oil just a few times!

I also really enjoy the sleek, glass packaging (yay, no plastic!) and the simple yet stylish black and white labels of the products.

I highly recommend these fantastic vegan and cruelty-free products from Swift Heist Beauty to get, or to keep your skin looking summer-ready all year round! Head on over to their website to see all of the products that they have to offer!

All Natural Owl Soy Candle

Cinnamon Apple Pie Lip Scrub

Green Tea Bath Bomb

Warm Vanilla Sugar Bath Bomb

Reviews: 

The holiday season is here which means my vegan treasure hunt for delicious flavors, warm scents, and fantastic gifts has begun!

I’ve been a huge fan of Soul Shine Cosmetics since trying their tropical bath bombs and lip scrub a few month ago. Check out my review here! I’m thrilled to share my review of their holiday items which are perfect stocking stuffers and gifts for even the pickiest of people on your holiday shopping list! Let’s go!

The all natural, chemical free, soy Owl Candle is as cute as can be! Since it is scented with Sandalwood, Jasmine, and Orange essential oils, it is a healthy alternative to the not-so-good-for-you candles that you can get at the store. The scent is fresh and natural and the glass owl jar is an adorable addition to any decor! This is perfect for hostess gifts, teachers, or just about anyone!

Ooh baby…. the Cinnamon Apple Pie Lip Scrub is a delicious sugar scrub that’s made with coconut and jojoba oil to really moisturize your lips! All you do is massage a small amount on your lips and BAM! They’re softer and smoother… not to mention this stuff tastes exactly like apple pie (no need to rinse it off, just lick it off of your lips for a low calorie snack!)! Love it!

This time of year can get hectic! Not to worry. The Green Tea Bath Bomb contains green tea, grapefruit oil, lemon essential oil & vanilla extract. This blend dissolves in your bathtub to create a truly relaxing (and much needed) bath to calm your nerves and recharge. Inhale the light and fresh scent as you let go of the holiday traffic, crowded stores, recipes, travel plans and when- the-heck-is-my-package-going-to-be-delivered type of worries that come along with the season!

The Warm Vanilla Sugar Bath Bomb is another fabulous bath bomb that is sure to please! Not sure of what to get someone? Or maybe you need a little treat? You can’t go wrong with a vanilla bath bomb! This little guy will fill your bathroom with the scent of warm vanilla (like sugar cookies) and let you take some time for yourself! Go ahead, spend an hour in the bathtub. You deserve it!

The Bottom Line

Soul Shine Cosmetics makes wonderful, high-quality products that are vegan, cruelty-free, and perfect for everyone on your list! You really can’t go wrong… the bath bombs smell amazing, the lip scrubs soften even the most chapped, winter lips (and they’re pretty much dessert in a jar) and the Owl Candles will make anyone smile! Head on over to their website to check out all of their products!

Thank you, Soul Shine Cosmetics, for sending me these products to review!!! Of course, I’ve included these products in my 2017 Vegan Holiday Gift Guide, so go and take a look!

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!

Reviews:

Hello, again! I’m back and so excited to share my reviews of these amazing Soapbox Soaps products!  As always, if you want quick information about these products (and an exclusive discount code) along with this company’s amazing mission, skip to The Bottom Line at the end of this post! Ok, let’s get into it!

I don’t know about you, but I get pretty stressed throughout the week and I rely on shower time to relax and to collect my thoughts. I’ll tell you right now, these products have such soothing, spa-like fragrances, I have been looking forward to shower time more than usual lately!

The Sea Minerals & Blue Iris Body Wash has a creamy formula that lathers up nicely with just a small amount of product (Hooray for value!). It rinses easily and leaves your skin feeling soft and clean. The fragrance is a refreshing blend of ocean-inspired scents and floral notes. It is absolutely fantastic and I would wear this as a perfume if I could!

The Bamboo Strength and Body Shampoo contains aloe and shea butter to moisturize and bamboo extract to strengthen hair and bring back its elasticity to reduce breakage. Just like the body wash, you only need a small amount of this shampoo, since it works into a rich lather and easily rinses clean. It thoroughly cleanses your locks without stripping it of moisture.

The Bamboo Strength and Body Conditioner also contains aloe and shea butter to hydrate, bamboo extract to retain moisture and strengthen your strands. The consistency of this conditioner is pretty thick, and  I actually needed to use much less of this product than I do with other conditioners. It easily distributes through hair, and is thick enough to stay put while you take care of the rest of your shower routine. It detangled my hair while giving it weightless moisture. I am very happy to report that my hair looked clean, shiny, manageable, and full of body after using these two products. My curls looked and smelled fantastic!The fragrance is so unique and refreshing, its actually quite addicting! I find myself smell

After using the Bamboo Shampoo and Conditioner, I am very happy to report that my hair looked clean, shiny, manageable, and full of body. This is no easy task because my hair is typically dry and wild, so I am impressed! The fragrance is so unique and refreshing, it is actually quite addicting! I find myself smelling my hair throughout the day, it is that nice!

The Vanilla & Lily Blossom Liquid Hand Soap smells like a bouquet of sweet flowers and contains aloe and shea butter to moisture. This soap leaves your skin feeling soft, clean, and lightly fragranced. It has a creamy consistency and works into a rich lather to gently wash away impurities. Gorgeous!

Last but definitely not least, the Citrus & Peach Rose Bar Soap has perhaps my favorite scent of all! The delicious blend of citrus and floral is fresh and unique. This bar soap not only cleanses your skin, it uplifts your spirits and calms your mind! Olive oil and shea butter provide hydration while you cleanse and your skin is left renewed and delightfully fragranced. This little soap is a powerhouse!

The Bottom Line

Soapbox Soaps makes incredible vegan and cruelty-free products with spa-like fragrances that leave your skin and hair feeling soft, clean, and healthy. Their products are luxurious yet the prices are very affordable. I could easily see them doubling their prices, and still being extremely successful!

Besides the excellent quality of these products, and perhaps best of all, Soapbox Soaps donates a bar soap to people in need with every purchase. I am thrilled to be working with them to reach their tremendous milestone of donating 3 MILLION BAR SOAPS!

To recap, the Bamboo Strength and Body Shampoo and Conditioner are just what your hair needs to build strength while feeling moisturized and manageable. If it can hydrate my dry curls and decrease my frizz, I am confident it will work for just about everyone. The body wash is truly luxurious and makes you feel renewed and reenergized. The hand soap is high quality and adds a fresh floral bouquet to your hygiene routine. The bar soap is truly one of the best bar soaps out there. It lathers up easily and leaves behind an absolutely gorgeous and unique citrusy floral scent.

Soothing Sloth Bath Bomb Reviews

Company: Soothing Sloth Soap Co.

Products:

Hey Girl Bath Bomb

Frootylicious Bath Bomb

Hello Lover Bath Bomb

Sunset Sorbet Bath Bomb

Reviews:

If you love pretty floral fragrances, you'll love the Hey Girl Bath Bomb! It slowly fizzes around your bath while turning the water a gorgeous and shimmery light pink shade while making your bathroom smell like a bouquet of fresh cut flowers thanks to gardenia, cherry blossom and cedar wood. It leaves the scent behind on your skin so you can even skip perfume!

The Frootylicious Bath Bomb smells like candy and is a fun, energizing way to take a bath! It's sweet fruity fragrance lingers on the skin long after your bath is over. Berries, white tea and ginger combine to creates unique scent while Kaolin clay and coconut oil moisturize and purify the skin.



The Hello Lover Bath Bomb has a sweet and sexy scent and turns your bath water into a deep sapphire blue shade. I soaked in the bath for a long time and felt like I was floating in the ocean at sunset. This scent reminded me of something but I couldn't put my finger on it. After the bath, my boyfriend said it reminded him of Love Spell, and gosh darn it, he was right! It smells very reminiscent of Victoria's Secret signature Love Spell scent, without all of the chemicals and unnecessary junk. Lavender essential oil helps you to unwind while coconut oil softens your skin. You will love this one!

The Sunset Sorbet Bath Bomb's scent is as bright as the sun with its citrusy notes and vibrant colors. Lemongrass essential oil, kaolin clay and coconut oil are the star ingredients of this little show stopper. It slowly fizzes in the tub and creates swirls of yellow, orange and pink. It really looks like a picturesque sunset that you could spend hours looking at!

The Bottom Line

Besides the awesome name, Soothing Sloth Soap Co. creates fabulously scented bath bombs that completely transform your bath water and transports your senses. They are carefully handmade in Cleveland with surfactants that are much milder than other big competitors like Lush. This makes them suitable for children and much less likely to cause skin irritation (Yay!). Kaolin clay detoxes and purifies the skin while coconut oil naturally hydrates, so you get clean and deliciously fragranced skin!

I wish blogs were "Scratch and Sniff" because these bath bombs are so fragrant and beautiful they have definitely become one of my favorite brands (and I've tested a lot of bath bombs!). I will absolutely be including them in my upcoming Holiday Gift Guide, so stay tuned for that!

I highly recommend these products to anyone looking for bath bombs that are fun, high quality, and suitable for all skin types! Be sure to stop by their website to check out these bath bombs and their new skin care products. You'll be glad you did!

Thank you, Soothing Sloth Soap Co., for sending me these amazing bath bombs to review!
