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!

LACE Pine & Peppermint Natural Deodorant Review

Company: LACE

“We all believe in natural products, without the fillers. We’re not here to greenwash our products or imply we’re selling you something we’re not. We don’t believe there should be a pink tax. We don’t think all products for women have to smell like faeries and fluff. We’re here to make real products for real people.”

Product: Pine & Peppermint Natural Deodorant

Review:

Natural deodorants can be tricky. They can be all natural but not keep you smelling nice for very long. They can keep you dry, but can also be extremely irritating.

I’m thrilled to share with you this Pine & Peppermint Natural Deodorant from LACE! It is vegan, cruelty-free, aluminum free, and smells fantastic!

The Pine and Peppermint scent instantly makes me think of wintertime and the holidays. The Peppermint perks up your senses and the Pine gives it an earthy, woodsy vibe. It’s not an overly feminine or overly masculine scent, so I think anyone can use this!

Ok, so it smells like the “most wonderful time of the year” but does it work?

YES!!!! This deodorant kept me odor-free for over 36 hours! Yes, I did go that long without showering (Writing genuine product reviews is very import to me!). Although this isn’t an antiperspirant, it also kept me dry!

My skin wasn’t irritated by this deo whatsoever and you only need 2-3 swipes per armpit! It glides on easily and clear, and you will get hints of the Peppermint and Pine scent throughout the day.

The Bottom Line

I love everything about this product! The packaging is cute and durable. The scent is fabulous and the formula really works! I absolutely recommend this product to everyone, even those with sensitive skin like me.

Thank you, LACE, for sending me this vegan, cruelty-free and naturally effective deodorant to review! I’m a huge fan!

Organic Beauty Junkie – Vegan Lip Balm and Solid Perfume Reviews

Company: Organic Beauty Junkie

“Welcome to Organic Beauty Junkie! You will find natural and organic skincare and personal care products. Our products are handcrafted and contain only the best ingredients to ensure our customers get only the most effective, natural beauty products.”

Products:

Vanilla Vegan Lip Balm

Jasmine Vegan Solid Perfume

Reviews:

Hello, natural beauty lovers! I got to try out Organic Beauty Junkie’s vegan and cruelty free products, so let’s jump right in!

The Vanilla Vegan Lip Balm is made with shea butter and coconut oil, so you know it’ll do a good job hydrating your pretty little pout! This balm glides on smoothly and leaves a subtle sheen on the lips. The natural vanilla scent is there, but it’s not overwhelming in any way. It did, in fact, moisturize my lips and made them look and feel naturally gorgeous!

Using natural lip products is so important! You don’t want to put layers and layers of harmful chemicals on your lips because you end up ingesting a lot of it! Natural is the way to go!

The Jasmine Vegan Solid Perfume is made with essential oils and smells incredible! It is sweet and alluring (my boyfriend loves it, wink wink), yet not too overpowering. This product applies effortlessly and does not leave any greasiness behind. I used this on my wrists and pulse points and enjoyed getting hints of the fragrance throughout the day. I did have to reapply this perfume, but since the tube is small and portable, it’s not a big deal. If you like soft, floral fragrances, you will LOVE this one!

The Bottom Line

If you’re in the market for naturally effective products that are vegan and cruelty-free, I highly recommend that you give these products a try! I love that the lip balm has coconut and shea butter because they are the VIPs of natural moisturizers and I don’t have worry about putting toxic chemicals into my body! The scent of the Jasmine Vegan Solid Perfume is absolutely beautiful and it made me feel pretty wearing it! I highly recommend these products to all natural beauty junkies!

Thank you, Organic Beauty Junkie, for sending me these products to review!

Not Soap Radio – Blackberry and Vanilla Pheromone Activation Detox + Hydrate Fragrance

Product:

The stuff that Cupid dips his arrows in (because sometimes fate needs an assist) – Detox and Hydrating Spray for Hair/Body (4.2 fl.oz.) $18.00 USD

Review:

I am very thankful for all of the bath and body products that I get to review (it’s an awesome hobby!). Every so often a fresh and innovative company comes along that reignites my love of vegan and cruelty-free products. Not Soap Radio is one of those companies!

Their products are made with essential oils, botanicals, and herbal extracts that actually take care of your skin (Bath and Body Works, who?). Their bottles are made of recycled plastic and they practice the “farm to bottle” approach to use local ingredients to lessen their carbon footprint.

Their products are truly eye-catching with their bright colors, fun names, and hilarious descriptions! When you look at their website, you will want to try everything!

I tried their “The stuff that Cupid dips his arrows in (because sometimes fate needs an assist) – Detox and Hydrating Spray for Hair/Body”. Told ya the names of the products were fun! This Blackberry and Vanilla scented spray can be used all over the body, including your hair. This fragrance is bright and sweet like freshly picked berries. Feeling a little tired? This spray has a refreshing and energizing kick thanks to Peppermint and Ginseng extracts. It also contains Argan oil, which makes this a hydrating spray for both hair and body.

On the skin, the fragrance is light and sweet and is suitable for any occasion. You will smell hints of it throughout the day and you’ll think “Damn, I smell good!” which is always nice. I found the fragrance to be a little bit stronger when used in the hair. I liked using this as a hair fragrance most of all since that is how it was most noticeable to me. Who doesn’t want hair that smells fabulous?

These sprays can also be used as room or linen sprays. How cool is that? I love multi-functional products!

The Bottom Line

Not Soap Radio is a company that creates fun and exciting products that are animal and environmentally friendly. Their use of natural, locally-sourced ingredients puts them miles ahead of other, not so socially responsible companies.

Using their products is a genuinely enjoyable experience, thanks to their creative names, vibrant colors and fantastic scents. I am so thrilled to have tried their products and to share them with you! I highly recommend them!

Thank you, Not Soap Radio, for sending me this fragrance to review!

Reviews 

 “Daring and exotic. Irresistibly sensual. Incredibly all natural.” With a description like that, who wouldn’t want to try Envision All Natural Eau de Parfum?

Screen Shot 2017-05-10 at 3.09.23 PM

I have not experienced a fragrance quite like this one. It is unique with its sharp floral notes, making it perfect for date night or anytime you want some attention. The citrus provides brightness while the peppercorn provides spice. The middle notes add a floral bouquet to the patchouli and vanilla which provide warmth and sweetness! This fragrance is strong, so a little goes a long way!

 

Empower All Natural Eau de Parfum is described as “Fresh and spirited. Playful and energizing. Incredibly all natural.”

Screen Shot 2017-05-10 at 3.03.52 PM

The top notes of various citrus fruits make this unisex fragrance as bright as the summer sun. Spearmint and basil add herbal notes, and cedar wood and patchouli add earthy qualities to this unique, fun fragrance that reminds me of walking through the woods in July. I really like this fragrance and highly recommend it!

 

Together All Natural Eau de Parfum is “An elegant and graceful classic light floral that’s flirtatious yet delicate.”

Screen Shot 2017-05-10 at 3.13.41 PM

This fragrance is my favorite out of the three. The description is correct. It is light and sophisticated and perfect for any occasion. The floral notes are feminine and gentle and do not overpower. The base notes create a natural and sweet fragrance that will appeal to most fragrance fans! Give this one a try!

 

The Bottom Line

I enjoyed trying out these three perfumes. “Together” was my favorite since it can be worn anywhere and everywhere. Beyond the fragrances themselves, I think that it is fantastic and admirable the Pour le Monde supports charities that correspond to each of their perfumes. If only more companies would do that! These perfumes, along with the company as a whole, are the epitome of beauty and grace. The next time you are looking for all natural fragrances, try Pour le Monde. Give back to others and smell fabulous at the same time!

Thank you, Pour le Monde, for providing me with samples to review!
