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!

Fresh Face Natural Skin Oils Review

Company: Fresh Face – Natural Skin Oils

Products:

Clarity Serum (1 fluid ounce, $38 USD)

Spot Treatment (1/3 fluid ounce, $18.00 USD)

Replenishing Face Wash (4 fluid ounces, $24.00 USD)

Review:
I can’t tell you how much I love products with 5 ingredients or less! The ingredients in the Clarity Serum are: Argan Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Neem Oil, Rosemary Oil, and Sea Buckthorn Oil. That’s it!

“The Clarity Serum works to regulate the skin’s production of sebum, which causes acne. It holds an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. All while lightening acne scars and toning dark spots. This clarity serum is the perfect oil for stubborn skin.” Sounds great, right?

I used this Serum for 10 consecutive nights. It has the very distinct scent of rosemary, which I didn’t exactly look forward to. Thankfully (for me) the scent dissipated after I massaged it into my skin. Afterward, I found that I didn’t need a moisturizer and the product seemed to improve the redness and overall appearance of my skin.

I do not suffer from acne, but I do experience hormonal breakouts. I used a sample of their Spot Treatment on a few pimples. The spot treatment (made of tea tree oil and coconut oil), in addition to the Clarity Serum, seemed to get rid of my breakouts within 2-3 days, which is pretty good in my opinion!

The Replenishing Face Wash, made of Castor Oil, Frankincense Oil, Geranium Oil, Jojoba Oil, Lavender Oil, and Rosehip Oil, effectively removed my foundation. I do not like to use oils to remove my eye make up, but it did get the job done. This face wash has a pleasant herbal/floral scent and definitely hydrates as it cleanses.

The Bottom Line

These products are simple, vegan, cruelty free and 100% natural. The are easy to use and gently improve your skin. Like many skin care products, it may take a while to see results. I believe that these high quality products are effective and I look forward to seeing how great my skin will be look in a few weeks! Give Fresh Face products a try and let me know how you like them!

Thank you, Fresh Face, for sending me these products to review!

OM BOTANICAL Anti-Hair Loss Organic Shampoo and One Step Face Wash Review

Company: OM BOTANICAL

“OM BOTANICAL is a beautifully handmade brand of truly natural and organic skin and body care products. The decision as to what goes into our non-toxic products and what stays out is based totally on the safety and efficacy of the final product. Our scientists study the bio-activity of plant molecules, identify the ingredients that work in synergy with your skin’s inherent mechanisms and then develop formulations for specific applications. It is this process that led to the development of this therapeutic brand of 100% natural and organic skin and body care products. Our botanical ingredients are not only the safest, but also have the most powerful healing and renewing properties available.”

The reviewed products are made with all natural ingredients, vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free!

Products:

Sulfate Free Anti-Hair Loss Organic Shampoo with Soapnuts and Biotin  – 15 oz. (430g) $23.00 USD

One Step Face Wash  – 4 oz. (120 g) $24.00 USD

Reviews: 


The Anti-Hair Loss Organic Shampoo is made with soapnuts and all natural ingredients that have not been chemically processed or bleached, which gives this shampoo a “natural tint and earthy fragrance.” The claims of this Ayurvedic formula include that this shampoo prevents hair loss and dandruff and it is a natural DHT blocker. DHT  (dihydrotestosterone) is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that has been said to contribute to hair loss.

This shampoo is also sulfate Free, silicone free, and color safe. Soap nut extract, aloe vera, olive and pumpkin seed oil, vitamin B3 and B6, and Wild Peppermint oil create a moisturizing and nourishing shampoo that does not dry out or damage the hair.

It is a low-lathering since it does not contain sulfates, and the thin consistency provides gentle cleansing. I enjoy using this shampoo because the peppermint oil creates a cool and refreshing treat for my scalp. Both my hair and scalp felt clean and rejuvenated after using this. I do not suffer from hair loss, so as far as preventing hair loss goes, I cannot speak about it. However, you know when you’re getting ready to get out of the shower and you look down to see a bunch of hair stuck in the drain (please tell me it’s not only me!)? I did notice that I did have less breakage and less hair left in the shower… perhaps because this shampoo is low-lathering and didn’t rough up my hair? Interesting…

The One Step Fash Wash is a multifunctional product that cleanses, removes makeup, exfoliates, and tones. It has a slightly earthy yet sweet and fruity scent, and the consistency is very thick, so once you start working it into your skin, it does not drip off. The instructions indicate that you are supposed to massage the cleanser into your wet skin for 1 minute. Although it is recommended on the bottle to use a moisturizer afterward, my skin did not feel overly dry.

Aloe vera juice, castor oil, witch hazel, pineapple, lime, and chamomile account for this cleansers ability to remove all traces of makeup and oil while leaving your face feeling soft, soothed, healthy, and thoroughly cleaned. This one is a winner in my book!

The Bottom Line

OM BOTANICAL makes effective, all natural products that are cruelty-free and vegan (hooray!). They base their formulations on science, not trends. In fact, the labels of these products contain A LOT of information and its a bit like reading a science textbook. Yay for science! Get smarter as you shower!!

I genuinely enjoyed using these products, and recommend that you give OM BOTANICAL a try! Head on over to their website to learn more about the science and values behind the brand!

Orenda Skin Care – Illuminating Face Wash and Face Serum 

Brand: Orenda Skin Care

Orenda Skin Care uses unrefined, plant-based ingredients. Their products are Leaping Bunny and PETA Certified and are “proven to help prevent, treat, and heal skin concerns.”

Products

Illuminating Face Wash with Vitamin C (200 ml)

Illuminating Face Serum (20 ml)

Review

The Illuminating Face Wash with Vitamin C ($42.00 USD) is a clear liquid cleanser that has a clean, fresh scent. It easily works into a nice light lather between your hands. One pump is enough to remove all of my make up. It leaves my skin feeling thoroughly clean and healthy, never tight or dried out. I actually look forward to washing my face wth this! I’ve never thought or made this statement before, so that’s saying something!

The Illuminating Face Serum has a fresh herbal scent and the consistency of a light oil. The top ingredients are Rosehip Seed Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Sunflower Seed Oil. In the AM and PM, I use 1 pump for my entire face, or 2 pumps for my face, neck, and chest area.

This serum leaves the skin feeling dewy with a subtle glow, but is not heavy or greasy. It is so effective that I skipped my moisturizer all together. It absorbs completely in 5-10 minutes and made my foundation go on much easier. This serum sells for $89.00 USD and is definitely worth the price.

The sleek, sophisticated and absolutely beautiful packaging of these products is just another plus when it comes to this line of skin care. I usually try to put my products in a drawer to remain out of sight, but these products are so pretty, I just have to leave them out on my bathroom counter! I mean, look at them!

Bottom Line: These products have significantly benefited my skin. My face is noticeably moisturized, less red, and the texture is improving. I would absolutely recommend Orenda Skin Care to my friend and followers, and will purchase these items and more in the future!

Thank you, Orenda Skin Care, for providing these items for me to try and review!
