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!

Meraki Botanicals – Vegan Lip Balm Set Review

Company: Meraki Botanicals

Products: Vegan Lip Balm Set (4 – 0.5 oz. tins) $15.00 USD

Review: It can be tough finding an all-natural lip balm that doesn’t contain beeswax, so I was super excited to try out the Vegan Lip Balm Set from Meraki Botanicals. This set comes with 4 lip balms: Rose, Orange, Lavender, and Mint.

These balms are made with coconut oil, shea butter, and soy wax, which completely proves that you don’t need beeswax to make a good, moisturing lip balm! They are scented with essential oils, and thats about it! Less is more!

When you rub the product with your finger, it melts slightly so when you put it on your lips, it soaks right in. These are definitely hydrating and give your pout a nice glossy sheen that is not sticky whatsoever.

The Mint flavor is my favorite because it smells like sweet spearmint. The scent of the Orange flavored balm is very subtle. The orange scent mixes with the shea butter, giving it a light orange vanilla-ish flavor.

The floral balms, Rose and Lavender, have a stronger scent than the other two. I prefer food flavored lip balms, but these are pleasant and would absolutely be a winner to people that love flower scents. Since coconut oil, shea butter and soy wax can be used anywhere on the body, I will be using these on my elbows, cuticles, and wherever else needs some moisture.

The Bottom Line

These Vegan Lip Balms are as natural as can be and do a great job hydrating. I absolutely love the sheen they give my lips! The colorful labels and the durable metal tins are adorable, so these get an A+ for packaging! The Orange and Mint flavors are fantastic. I highly recommend these products, and if you’re a flower child, try out the Rose and Lavender balms. You can purchase the set of 4 or order them individually. Head on over to the Meraki Botanicals website to see what they have to offer! Let me know what you think of these vegan lip balms!

LoveBud Tinted Lip Budders Review

Company: Lovebud

Products: Tinted Lip Budders $6.00 USD each

I was so excited to try out these Tinted Lip Budders from Lovebud! I love tinted lip balms, especially for the summer! These bad boys are hydrating and super smooth on the lips! Hooray for not getting your hair stuck in your lipgloss every time the wind blows!

These Lip Budders contain hemp seed oil, a "natural anti-aging superfood for your skin." My lips were noticeably softer after using these.

I'm wearing the Pink Candy shade in the picture below, but I like them all. Pink Champagne is a nice, pale pink shimmer that looks great alone or on top of other lip products. I know I'll be wearing Plushberry a lot this Fall. It is the perfect berry shade!

The Bottom Line

I love these Lip Budders! They're vegan and cruelty free (obviously) and truly nourish your lips while giving them a sheer wash of color. Head on over to their website and check out all of their hemp seed oil infused products!

Thank you, Lovebud, for sending me these products to review!

Reviews


If you’re in need of a vacation (who isn’t?), let’s talk about the Lime in the Coconut Bath Bomb. As soon as you drop this bad boy into the bathtub its sure to remind you of a tropical cocktail that you wish you were drinking! It’s wonderful fragrance is a mix of bright and fresh lime with sweet coconut that’ll transport you to a gorgeous picturesque beach vacation. This is truly a fabulous way to take a 30 minute vacation in your own bathroom!

The Solar Flare Bath Bomb is like pure summer sunshine! It’s sweet, super lemon-y scent is SO refreshing, making this the perfect warm weather bath treat! It makes your bath water bright yellow and leaves a subtle lemon scent on your skin. What a fun way to take a bath!


The Romance Milk Bomb‘s fragrance is a fabulous blend of rose and vanilla. The sweet floral scent instantly creates a sense of luxury and relaxation while dried rose petals add a touch of romance. It’s a bit like soaking in a giant cup of rose tea!



The Edible Lemon Blueberry Lip Scrub tastes like a huge sip of sweet and fruity blueberry lemonade! It’s sugar based and gently scrubs away any dry skin from your lips. It’s perfect to use before lipstick to make sure your smackers look healthy and smooth. I couldn’t help but lick this off of my lips! (I still have a craving for lemonade)

The Bottom Line

Soul Shine Cosmetics creates fabulous and fun products that are natural, vegan and cruelty free. The fragrances are outstanding and products themselves are high quality. I absolutely ADORE the summer scents, and look forward to trying more from this brand! Try out some products and let me know how you like them!
