Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts That Are So Much Better Than Flowers!

Not sure what to get your Valentine this year? Flowers last a few days then end up in the trash (what a freakin’ waste of $$$)! Chocolates are nice while you eat them but they also put you into a sugar coma and are soon forgotten…

Give your Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband/Bae/Partner a vegan and cruelty-free gift that will make them feel special over and over again. Make Scents Natural Spa Line has exactly what you need to make this Valentine’s Day the best one yet!

Their Chocolate Decadence Body Butter and Strawberry Fields Body Scrub are a match made in heaven and are so much better than chocolate-covered Strawberries (seriously though, how are they so small, gone in seconds, yet so expensive?!) or any lame card you would pick up at the drug store. These luxurious body products smell insanely good and are sure to please even the pickiest of Valentine’s! In fact, you and/or your Valentine will smell SO good you will have to ban yourself from taking a romantic stroll in the woods to avoid attracting bears with the mouthwatering scent of these bath and body products. “Don’t say I didn’t, say I didn’t, say I didn’t warnnnnn yaaaaaaaa!”

Ok, back to the goods!

At first, I thought the  Chocolate Decadence Body Butter was a joke. It is super thick and smells like rich, dark chocolate. I was convinced (still am) that it belongs on top of a cupcake but hey, it does a great job as a moisturizer thanks to pure, unrefined cocoa butter! It just melts right in to make event the driest skin soft, hydrated and radiant!

Their Strawberry Fields Body Scrub smells like fresh, delicious strawberries… I really just wanted to put it on some toast and eat it, but that would be weird… right?!  This sugar scrub contains organic strawberries, vitamin C, vitamin E, and natural oils to gently exfoliate, soften, and scent the skin. This. Smells. So. Good!

These two products are perfect together… Just like you and your Valentine! Use these two products, and I bet my bottom dollar that you and your Valentine will be singing “Let’s Get It On…” in no time. They really are that good!

Head on over to Make Scents Natural Spa Line to check out all of the fabulous products that they have to offer! (They make some of my favorite products!!!)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Reviews:

Are you a manly man? You know… the type of guy that goes out into the woods to build fires, shotgun beers and howl at the moon? Or maybe you’re not into building fires but you slave away behind a computer to build websites? Whatever type of manly man you are, Make Scents Natural Spa Line’s Burly Men’s Line is for you!

You work hard all day, and maybe your skin needs a little help… give Burly Buff a try! It’s a sugar scrub jam packed with good for your skin ingredients like orange, cedar wood, peppermint and tea tree! Slather this on your super manly skin, rub it in circular motions, and rinse… that’s all you have to do for smooth, soft skin! Your bros will wonder how you look so damn good and your partner will love the refreshing, masculine scent!

Listen… you’re a guy and your skin gets dry. You may not want to use flower-scented body lotion, but trust me, you gotta use something or you’re just not looking your best! Burly Balm is a thick body butter that will moisturize your skin and make you smell like million bucks! Its full of cocoa butter and sunflower seed oil, along with orange, cedar wood, and tea tree to make you smell like the classy, lumberjack that you are. Peppermint will even help soothe those muscles your wore out while chopping wood, or changing the toner in the office’s printer, or whatever manly things you do all day.

For the burliest of burly men, you gotta try the Burly Beard & Hair Oil. Sorry dudes, dry hair just doesn’t look good. Either do crazy, scraggly beards. Get a product that will fix it all in one easy step! This beard and hair oil is made with “invigorating peppermint oil, calming orange peel oil, soothing cedarwood oil, and healing tea tree oil.” It will make your hair and beard softer, more manageable, and smelling freakin’ amazing! All you need is a few drops and about 20 seconds, and you’ll be looking good as hell! (People will notice, I guarantee it!)

The Bottom Line

You want to look good… you just don’t want to look like you spent a few hours in the bathroom getting ready. You have a lot of testosterone and a lot of work to do, and you just can’t be bothered with skin or hair care. For you, my friend, I highly recommend the Burly Men’s Line. Take a few minutes in the shower to scrub off all of the day’s nastiness with the Burly Scrub. Take another minute or two and hydrate your skin with the Burly Balm… your skin shouldn’t feel like sandpaper no matter how much you like building $#%t. Take 20 more seconds and rub in some of the Burly Beard and Hair Oil… and you’re seriously looking and smelling good!

If you’re a reading this and have a certain guy in mind that desperately needs to start taking better care of himself when it comes to his skin and hair, but doesn’t want to be bothered with overly-feminine or unnecessarily complicated routines, give the Burly Men’s Line a try! It’s vegan, cruelty free, and free of any harmful chemicals… I highly recommend it!

Aloe and Rose… sounds like the perfect toner to me!

Well, I was right! This toner soothes your skin after cleansing and also adds moisture. It has a subtle scent that smells like a sweet, floral tea that is absolutely delicious! This toner is made with 100% organic Rose Water, rose essential oil, and Aloe Vera to gently clear away any oil or make up to reveal a completely clean and healthy face! This toner is great for all skin types and I highly recommend it!

The Pitta Balancing Treatment Oil is an absolute dream for my skin! It is made to address inflammation, redness and reactivity, and sensitive skin. It smells like a bouquet of flowers and is packed with skin loving ingredients. Almond oil, Jojoba oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Argan Oil and Chammomile and Green Tea are a few of the star ingredients that make this oil so fantastic. It hydrates and calms the skin without feeling greasy or heavy.

I love using this in the morning. I wash my face, massage 3-4 drops onto my face and let in sink in as I get ready for the day. By the time I am ready to apply make up (10 minutes or so), my skin is completely moisturized and my make up applies smoothly and easily.

This oil definitely calmed and moisturized my combination/sensitive skin without causing breakouts. My skin is less red and it just generally looks healthier! I love this stuff!

The Vata Face Cream is a thick, luxurious face cream that nourishes your skin with essential oils and herbs. It smells AMAZING… light, herbal, refreshing, just trust me! It instantly hydrates to improve the texture and tone of your skin. I like to use this after the Aloe and Rose Tonic at nighttime, however, it would make the perfect daytime moisturizer as well since it is not too heavy or greasy. For a double dose of hydration, this could be used under the treatment oil.

Exfoliation is very important to healthy looking skin. Once or twice a week, use a gentle scrub to remove dead skin cells and impurities, improve circulation to give your skin a nice glow, and to improve cell turnover. The Sananda Face Polish is a nice way to do all of these things. This sugar-based facial scrub is made for acne-prone skin and removes bacteria and oil from pores for clearer skin overtime. It has an herbal/citrusy scent and oils to nourish the skin, so it will not cause dryness like typical acne-fighting treatments.

I’ve never used anything quite like the Bhana Body Scrub! It is a sea salt scrub with ground herbs and essential oils. It has a texture that’s somewhat gel-like and it’s very interesting! When you use this scrub with hot water, the scrub breaks down and does a great job removing dry skin cells and moisturizing event the most dehydrate skin. I use this on my feet and elbows, and it really did improve the look and feel of my skin. As with any scrub, its a good idea to put on a lotion or body butter afterwards. This is a unique product that is fun to use and definitely gets the job done!

The Body Butter is perfect treat for your skin. The consistency is very thick but it instantly melts and absorbs into your skin to leave it soft, smooth, and hydrated. It has a subtle scent that is fresh, clean, and herbal and it leaves a nice glowing sheen on the skin. Love it!

The Bottom Line

Jivana products are thoughtfully created with the highest quality ingredients. They effectively cleanse, hydrate and nourish the skin with natural oils, butters, and essential oils. Their range includes products for your face, body, and hair so it is simple to switch to vegan, cruelty-free products that are free of harmful chemicals and contain only the purest ingredients.

I absolutely adore how the Aloe and Rose Tonic and Pitta Balancing Treatment Oil work together to dramatically hydrate and reduce the redness in my skin. I felt comfortable leaving the house without make up and my boyfriend even told me that my skin looked better!

I highly recommend these products and look forward to trying more from this line! Head on over to their website and let me know what you think!

Thank you, Jivana, for sending me these fantastic products to review!!

Reviews

Alright girls, go grab yourself a PSL with almond milk, post a pic on Insta of your feet walking through colorful leaves and slather on some Basic As #!?& Body Butter! It’s perfectly pumpkin spiced because deep down, we’re all a little basic.

This super thick body butter gets its magical hydrating powers from shea butter and jojoba oil. Essential oils from cinnamon bark, nutmeg and cloves blend together to make its beautifully basic fragrance.

This bad boy melts right into the skin and leaves a gorgeous sheen on the the skin without feeling like an oil-slick. It makes your skin noticeably softer and deliciously smelling of pumpkin spice. Don’t be surprised if the scent  attracts a bunch of basic b$tches around you. ‘Tis the season.

Ok, let’s talk about the soon-to-be-released- holiday-spice-scented, Merry As #!?& Body Butter!

If the holiday season was somehow trapped in a jar and transformed into a moisturizer, it would smell like this sweet, refreshing, cinnamon-y blend of Christmas trees, warm apple cider, and sugar cookies!

Yes, it smells freakin’ amazing but it also really hydrates the skin, thanks to its rockstar ingredients; Shea butter and jojoba oil. My skin was softer after just one use and I loved smelling like the living embodiment of Santa’s excitement on Christmas Eve. I just couldn’t help but get into the holiday spirit with this stuff! I was, indeed, Merry as #!?&.

The Merry As #!?& Body Butter will be available on November 23rd on Bleepingbeauty.com! Write a reminder on your phone and don’t come crying to me if you miss out!

Make Scents Natural Spa Line – Vegan Body Butter and Body Scrub Reviews

Company: Make Scents Natural Spa Line

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 1.00.51 PM

Products:

Citrus Grove Body Scrub (10 oz.) $30.00 USD

Citrus Grove Body Butter (7.5 oz.) $22.50 USD

Reviews: I have been SO excited to give these brand new vegan/cruelty-free products from Makes Scents Natural Spa Line a try! They have been in the works for awhile, and let me tell you, they hit it out of the park! I was generously sent 2 products to review, so let’s jump right in!

First up, is the Citrus Grove Body Scrub. I love, Love, LOVE this scent! It smells like a sweet blend of oranges mixed with lemon, lime, and grapefruit. It naturally lifts your spirits and gets you energized for the day! This is a sugar-based scrub, so the sugar granules are abrasive enough to slough away dead skin cells but not too rough that it can’t be used a couple times a week. Alpha hydroxy acids from citrus fruits also help to gently exfoliate the skin. You get 10 ounces of product in a sleek black plastic jar, which is perfect for use in the shower since it won’t break if it slips out of your hands.

This scrub definitely does its job! After the first use, my skin felt soft and smooth and it had a nice, healthy glow. The scrub leaves behind a subtle scent of citrus which is absolutely lovely.

The Citrus Grove Body Butter actually blew my mind! The consistency is so thick and the texture is so smooth, I couldn’t believe it! Sunflower and coconut oil, along with cocoa butter and citrus essential oils makes this a truly luxurious and effective moisturizer to use on your freshly exfoliated skin.

This body butter melts into the skin completely and does not feel greasy whatsoever. You’re left with soft, radiant skin that smells incredible! You get 7.5 ounces of product which will last for quite some time because a little bit goes a long way.

I also used this on my feet and elbows, which are always, always dry. This body butter did a wonderful job moisturizing and bringing my skin back to life. If a product can make my dry feet look and feel better, it is a winner!  

The Bottom Line

These products are fantastic! They are super luxurious and made with high quality, all-natural ingredients. I recommend these products to anyone that wants to pamper and care for their skin! They even have 2 ounce samples that you can buy to try out the line!

Thank you, Makes Scents Natural Spa Line, for sending me your brand new products to review! I’m a huge fan!
