Products:

Dew Extreme Moisture Infusion Serum (1 oz. –  $25.00)

Review:

The Orange Blossom and Sunflower Nourishing Cleanser contains Aloe Vera, Sunflower Seed Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Avocado Oil, Orange Blossom Fruit Extract, Black Currant Seed Oil, and Red Raspberry Seed Oil. With ingredients like that, you know the product is going to be good, and I loved using it! It’s sweet and bright citrus fragrance instantly lifted my mood as it removed all traces of my foundation, concealer, eyeliner, mascara, and brow pencil! After using this, my skin felt clean and healthy, not overly dry or tight in any way. 1 pump was more than enough product to remove my full face of makeup, so the bottle will last for quite some time.  It is definitely a new member of my daily skincare routine!

The Dew Extreme Moisture Infusion Serum contains many natural and lovely ingredients, including Aloe Vera, Blue Passion Flower, and Mannentake and Shiitake Mushroom extracts. This serum has a fresh fruity and floral fragrance (say that 3 times fast!) that instantly wakes up your senses and brings your skin to life!  Like the name implies, it gives your skin a shot of moisture, which my dry skin really needs. This serum is light and absorbs quickly into the skin. With a few uses, my skin looked smoother and my redness was calmed. I used this product in the morning before applying my makeup and it helped my foundation glide on easier. My skin did, in fact, look dewy and hydrated. I also used this at night and I woke up to perfectly moisturized skin. I was actually comfortable going out in public with little or no face make up (LOVE it!).

The Bottom Line

I truly adore companies like Bloom Making Skin Happy. Their products are naturally effective, smell fantastic, and the packaging is as cute as can be! The packaging is made of recycled plastic, the labels are printed with soy ink, and they are a Zero Waste company. How awesome is that? Of course, the products are vegan and cruelty-free and they use only high-quality organic ingredients. With their fabulous and naturally powerful products, conscientious packaging, and anti-cruelty stance, Bloom is everything a company should be! Please check out their website and let me know what products are your favorite!

 

 

 


October’s Treasure Hunt

It’s the end of October, and here are some vegan treasures that I’ve found!

First up, is Amy’s Pad Thai! For about $3, this is way cheaper than going out for Thai food, and it’s really not too far off when it comes to flavor.  Tender noodles, carrots, broccoli, peanuts, and tiny cubes of tofu, in a tangy and sweet sauce.  Loved it!

Next, is Nature’s Path Dark Chocolate Chip waffles.  These babies are gluten-free and organic, and have the richest dark chocolate chips in them!  I baked mine up in a convention oven until they were super crispy, then added some coconut oil and pumpkin pie spice… So so good! They were equally delicious with peanut butter.  I’ll definitely be getting these again.

Next, is Kiss My Face Flouride Free Triple Action Gel.  I’ve been looking for a Flouride free toothpaste for awhile (read up on the effects of Flouride), and was really hoping this one would get the job done.  Well, it did!  I’ve been using it for a month, and my teeth feel clean and my gums feel healthy.  This gel formula contains Xylitol, tea tree oil, silica, peppermint, and Zinc Citrate, to do what traditional toothpastes do, but without the side effects.  I really like nice mild mint flavor and will continue to use this for a long time!

And last on my list has been a long time favorite turned unfavorite … As you might have heard, Ellen DeGeneres, animal rights advocate and vegan, shockingly started a shoe line that included leather.  For the life of me, I do not understand this, and sincerely hope that she changes this very, very soon. To make matters worse, it appears that she is pairing up with the worst people in Hollywood, that happen to be a couple (I will not put their names in my blog), and selling more items made of animal materials.  What. The. Actual. Hell.?  I will not be watching her show again, that’s for sure. Read more below.

Well, that does it for me.  I’ve been really busy this month since I’m moving to Asheville! There are plenty of Veg restaurants there, so you’ll be hearing from me soon!
