Reviews:

 

To kick off this review, I’m starting with the item that just so happens to be one of my favorite art pieces of all time! The Dreamy Sky and Earth Wall Art is a stunning print on canvas that I could stare at for hours! The vibrant magenta and purple hues of the flowering fields pop against the dreamy, cloudy sky! I love art that gives you the ability to add your own personal flair to it. This item comes with 5 individual canvases that you can arrange as you see in the picture or any way you like! This is definitely a conversation piece that brings the beauty of nature into your home!

Next up, is the Casual Messenger Bag (Blue) by Amelie Galanti. This bag is perfect for just about every outfit and is very high quality. The faux leather has a glossy finish and the texture of actual leather. It has dark chrome hardware and multiple pockets and compartments to fit all of your belongings! It comes with a shoulder strap and a long cross-body strap so it can be styled to meet your needs. This bag is built to last, made with animal-friendly materials, and is the perfect everyday accessory!

Last up, is the Retro Floral Design Wallet (Green) that may just be the cutest wallet on the planet! This tri-fold wallet features an adorable, vintage-inspired floral pattern and high quality faux leather-esque material. It is large enough to fit all of your cards, bills, coins, and even your cell phone. This could even double as a clutch to add some springtime flair to your outfit! The inside is a pretty pink faux leather material with a sateen floral material inside the pockets. If you love vintage style, vegan accessories, or are just looking for a new item for the warmer weather, this wallet is it!

The Bottom Line

Rainbowgrove Dreams is a fabulous shop that offers special items that are anything but ordinary! The materials used are vegan and made to mirror the beauty of nature and the world around us.

SWAY Underarm Detox Deodorant Review… A Natural Way to Have Healthy, Odor-Free Pits!

Company: SWAY Underarm Detox Deodorant

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 3.10.34 PM

Product: SWAY Underarm Detox Deodorant Starter Kit For Women – $16.99 USD

Review: If you’re familiar with natural deodorants, you probably know that they do a pretty good job keeping your armpits smelling fresh, but they don’t do too much in the sweat-stopping department.

That’s why I was so excited to give the SWAY Underarm Detox Deodorant a try! It is basically a 2 product system that uses natural vegan ingredients to keep your pits feeling dry and smelling great!

SWAY Underarm Detox Deodorant Vegan

The first step is the Underarm Detox Deodorant that is made to purify, exfoliate, and balance pH using organic, raw apple cider vinegar! How cool is that?!

The deodorant looks like your standard roll-on. After shaking the bottle up, you apply a few swipes to each armpit, and wait until it is almost dry (about 30 seconds). Then, you use the Underarm Dusting Powder (the part I was most curious about!).

SWAY Underarm Detox Deodorant Vegan

The Underarm Dusting Powder includes baking soda and arrowroot powder which is known to keep you dry, along with sweet orange and grapefruit oils to keep you smelling oh-so-nice! It is packaged in an adorable little powder puff which is perfect for fitting into the armpit area. I applied enough to cover my underarms (about 4 puffs on each side) and was good to go!

So, did it work?

It sure did! I am happy to report that this system delivered results! I felt dry and smelled fresh throughout the day and I did not experience any irritation. It is so important to get rid of unnecessary chemicals in your daily routine, so this system is perfect! It is vegan, cruelty-free, talc-free, paraben-free, aluminum-free, and made with naturally effective ingredients!

The Bottom Line

I recommend this product to anyone and everyone that is interested in cleaning up their daily routine! This unique system is effective, easy to use, and affordable. The packaging is tough so it is great for travel, and I love the citrusy scent of the cute little powder puff!

Head on over to SWAY to check out this system for yourself!

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!!

Max Green Alchemy – Scalp Rescue Shampoo, Conditioner and Styling Gel Reviews (Vegan & Cruelty-Free!)

Company: Max Green Alchemy

Products:

Scalp Rescue Shampoo (8.8 fluid ounces) $15.99 USD

Scalp Rescue Conditioner (8.8 fluid ounces) $15.99 USD

Scalp Rescue Styling Gel (8.2 fluid ounces) $12.99 USD

Review:

Scalp Rescue Shampoo

When you shampoo your hair, it is import to choose a product that will gently cleanse your strands without stripping it of moisture. This shampoo is mild and contains all natural ingredients such as tea tree and lemon tea tree to soothe dry, itchy scalps and to minimize dandruff. It also contains vitamin C and E to protect your strands.

This shampoo does an excellent job cleaning the hair without over-drying. You only need a small amount of product since it quickly and easily lathers up and rinses away. It has a bright and fresh floral/citrusy fragrance that lingers long after you use it. Gotta say, I really like it!

Scalp Rescue Conditioner

My hair is dry. Very dry. I need a SUPER hydrating conditioner to make my hair look soft and healthy. The consistency of this conditioner isn’t too thin that it slides right out of your hair in the shower and it isn’t too thick that it weighs your hair down. This conditioner contains macadamia seed oil, jojoba oil, and shea butter to moisturize. It also has tea tree and lemon tea tree like the shampoo.

I can say that this conditioner delivers! It effectively soothed my scalp, which can be very dry. It hydrated my hair and easily detangled it with little effort. It has the same fresh scent as the shampoo. I’m a fan!

Scalp Rescue Styling Gel

This plant-based gel is perfect for my curls! It gives a natural, light to medium hold without making my hair sticky, stiff, or crunchy. All I do is work 2 pumps of this product into my hair after showering and let it air dry (I almost never use heat to style my hair.) My curls spring to life when I use this and my hair looks smooth and frizz free. Pretty awesome!

The Bottom Line

Max Green Alchemy’s Scalp Rescue line is all vegan, cruelty-free, and plant-based. These products work wonderfully together to make your hair look healthy, hydrated, and controlled. I must say that it does, in fact, effectively nourish the scalp. My scalp is typically dry and I haven’t noticed that being an issue since using this line.

I love how the shampoo works into a luxurious lather and how the conditioner smooths and easily detangles my locks. My favorite product out of this line is the Styling Gel because it is the perfect formula and consistency for my dry, frizz-prone curls. My boyfriend (lovingly) told me that my hair felt “softer than usual”, so you know it has to be good! Ha!

This line is great for all hair types and is made to specifically care for your scalp, which is essential for healthy hair.

I highly recommend this line to anyone that is looking for natural hair products that work!

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!

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!

After you order and receive your products, you will see that there is a unique  “Hope Code” that you can enter at soapboxsoaps.com/hope to “see where and how you purchase impacts another life.”

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.

I cannot express how wonderful these products are and how fantastic it is that this company is helping so many people! Can you imagine not being able to use soap to get clean?

Panda Paw – Cute Items for a Great Cause!

Organization: Panda Paw

“Our passion for pandas was ignited when we first saw them at the San Diego Zoo. Someday, we want our children to share that same spark. But with under 2,000 pandas left in the wild – we asked ourselves how could we help? Panda Paw was founded in 2016 to help #savethepandas”

Our goal is to design clothing that makes you look amazing while supporting the conservation of the beloved giant panda. We donate 10% of proceeds to pandasinternational.org. Feel free to shoot us an email! info@pandapaw.co”

Review:

I was so thrilled to be contacted by Panda Paw about becoming an Ambassador! Anytime that I can help protect animals, you know I’m down!

10% of proceeds go to Pandas International, a non-profit whose mission is to “ensure the preservation and propagation of the endangered Giant Panda.” Sounds great to me!  

I ordered Panda Paws’ Black Panda Hat. I’ve been on a hat kick lately, so why not get this one? It’s cute, casual, and has a little panda face on the front. What’s not to love?

The hat is one-size-fits-all and adjustable. It has the Panda Paws logo on the back, so whenever people watch you walk away (you know they’re checking you out after all those squats you do!) they’ll see it and hopefully check out the Panda Paw website.

They also have some REALLY cute tops that I plan to pick up soon, and a rose gold bamboo ring (currently pre-order only) that’s adorable!

The Bottom Line

Panda Paws offers high-quality items and donates a portion of their proceeds towards a great cause. With so few Giant Pandas left, we need more companies like this one! Head on over to their website to pick up this hat, or one of their adorable shirts to help the Giant Pandas!

Thank you, Panda Paw, for accepting me a Brand Ambassador! If you’re interested in becoming an ambassador, head on over to their site!

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!

Leven Rose Natural Beauty – Rosehip and Jojoba Oil Reviews

Products:

Rosehip Seed Oil (1 ounce) $13.97

Jojoba Oil (1 ounce) FREE, just pay shipping!

Reviews:

Oh man, oh man, oh man! I’m so happy that I found these products! They’re AMAZING! These 100% organic and cold-pressed oils seriously nourish your skin! Ok, let’s jump into the reviews!

This Rosehip Night Serum is everything that your skin is asking for! Rosehip Seed Oil is a powerhouse in the skincare game! It’s a light oil that moisturizes and fights fine lines and wrinkles. It is also known to fade scars and sun spots and help with dermatitis and skin irritation. It has a high omega fatty acid content along with Vitamin A, Beta-carotene, and Vitamin C and E. This oil really brings it!

Don’t wait another second! These 1 ounce bottles of 100% organic Jojoba Oil are FREE on the Leven Rose website! All you pay is shipping! I ordered 3 bottles and only paid $9.00 for shipping! Seriously, this is a fantastic deal!

Jojoba Oil is a multi-tasking, all around moisturizer. I use 3 drops on my face to hydrate my skin. This oil is said to diminish fine lines and even acne! I use this as a body moisturizer for smooth skin and in my hair as a leave-in conditioner to soften my dry ends. You can even add a few drops to your moisturizer for an extra boost! You only need the smallest amount of this product so this bottle (did I say it was FREE?! Well, I’m saying it again, it’s FREE!) will last quite some time!

The Bottom Line

These 2 products are like the all-star power couple of skin care. They’re fabulous on their own, but together my skin is looking softer, smoother, more radiant, and the texture is improving. I love knowing that the products I put on my skin have immediate effects and will also help my skin in the future.

I HIGHLY recommend these products to anyone looking for vegan, cruelty-free skincare that is organic and naturally effective! You can pick up the Rosehip Seed Oil and get the Jojoba Oil for free! How awesome is that?

Thank you so much to Leven Rose Natural Beauty for sending me these products to review! I can’t wait to explore more of your products!

Life's Nuts Flavored Sprouted Nuts:

Pizzalmonds

Buffalo Almonds and Ranch Cashews

Salt and Vinegar Almonds

TCG Cashews

Cinnamon Pecans

Coconut-Crusted Macadamia Nuts

Crunch Time Sprouted Blueberry Baobab Crunch

Crunch Time Sprouted Rainforest Crunch

Reviews:

I'm going to start with my favorite, the Pizzalmonds! It seriously tastes like pizza! Sundried tomatoes, basil, dates and bell pepper combine to make a delicious and healthy alternative to actual pizza. Honestly, these taste amazing and I'm super impressed!

The Buffalo Almonds and Ranch Cashews are another healthy replacement to the otherwise extremely unhealthy buffalo wings with ranch sauce. I must admit before I turned vegan many years ago, I did enjoy some wings and ranch. Of course, now, I enjoy the plant-based variety, so I was psyched to try these! The Buffalo almonds have a mild spicy kick while the ranch almonds add oniony and zesty flavor. Another winner!

The Salt and Vinegar Almonds have the signature taste of their distant junk food cousins, the Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips. Salt amplifies the pleasant sourness of the vinegar and nuttiness of the crunchy, sprouted almonds. While you're eating these, it's hard to remember they're raw, vegan, gluten-free and actually good for you!

The TCG Cashews (Turmeric, Cayenne, & Ginger) were the spiciest in my opinion and had a very unique flavor profile. The cayenne and ginger definitely gave it a kick that lingered and burned for while! These ingredients are anti-inflammatory and take these sprouted cashews to the next level!

If you're looking for something sweet but know you probably shouldn't down a whole box of Snickerdoodles, try the Cinnamon Pecans! The nuts are full of protein and minerals, and with the subtle sweetness from dates and cinnamon, these are the perfect snack to quiet your evil little sweet tooth!

The Coconut-Crusted Macadamia Nuts are truly a tropical treat! Shredded coconut and dates add sweetness to crunchy macadamias. They're absolute Perfection!

The Crunch Time Sprouted Blueberry Baobab Crunch is yet another one of my favs! Sprouted cashews and macadamias add crunch and protein while Baobab adds vitamin C and antioxidants. What the heck is baobab? Baobab is a superfruit that grows in Africa and helps with energy production and immune support. To make it even healthier, blueberries are added to the mix for a fruity and satisfying snack!

Last but not least, the Crunch Time Sprouted Rainforest Crunch is a fabulous combination of raw cacao, vanilla, dates, cashews, and Brazil nuts that is guaranteed to kill your cravings! Got a chocolate addiction but want a healthier option? Try this!

The Bottom Line

Sprouted, raw, vegan, gluten-free, Kosher, Paleo… these aren't words that you may automatically associate with delicious snacks, but Organic Living Foods has done an INCREDIBLE job creating snacks that not only taste fantastic but are truly healthy and nutrient dense!

The nuts are soaked in "triple-filtered water to activate live enzymes" and then dehydrated "at very low temperatures to protect the integrity of their vital nutrients." With that level of care and detail, these snacks are a must-try! They are suitable for just about every diet and there is bound to be something for everyone!

I highly recommend these products to anyone looking for healthy snacks with great flavor (who isn't?!). Don't just take my word for it! They have sampler packs for sale so you can try all of these out for yourself!

Thank you, Organic Living Superfoods, for sending me these products to review!
