Reviews:

This Rose Fountain Toner smells like a bouquet of freshly cut roses! I really can’t get enough of the scent! When you spray this fine mist on your face it calms and lightly hydrates thanks to Aloe Leaf Juice and Rose Flower Water.

This toner is perfect to use after you cleanse your skin and before using a moisturizer, serum, or beauty oil. It’s also fantastic to mist over your makeup to eliminate overly powdery makeup or just to give your face a dewy finish. You get a lot of product in this bottle so it will last quite some time, not to mention that the packaging is adorable!

The Nourished Foundation is a tinted face cream that is packed with skin loving ingredients. Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil hydrate and calm the skin along with DMAE and MSM to give you a brightening effect. This is a light coverage foundation that illuminates and enhances your skin. I use this all over my face for a healthy glow and then use concealer wherever I need it. I found this product was best applied with my fingertips, as opposed to a blending sponge or brush.

Overall, this foundation creates a your-skin-but-better look.  Usually, I’m a medium to full coverage kind of girl, but I really like how this foundation gives me an effortlessly natural look.

The Bottom Line

From the cute packaging to the natural ingredients, I truly enjoy this foundation and toner! These specific products are vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben free (YASSSSS!). I recommend these products to anyone that is looking to clean up their skincare and makeup routine. Of course, if you love roses, I think you will love this brand!

Thank you, Rose Affinity, for sending me these vegan and cruelty-free products!

MG Naturals: Airbrush Miracle Liquid Foundation and Mineral Magic Veil Reviews

Company: MG Naturals

“Imagine a world where make up is hydrating, soothing & healing just like your skin care, not loaded with petrochemicals, potential carcinogens, free radicals & nasty fillers. A world where your make up doesn’t cover up your imperfections, but actually heals & soothes, so you can have the best skin possible”

“Well that world is here at “MG Naturals”

Products:

Airbrush Miracle Liquid Foundation

Mineral Magic Veil

Reviews:

Who doesn’t want to try makeup that doesn’t have nasty chemicals in it? By now, most people know that natural is better, which is why I was so excited to review these products from MG Naturals! This company is based in Australia, but offers worldwide shipping, yay! Ok, so let’s get to it!

The Airbrush Miracle Liquid Foundation caught my eye because it is vegan and cruelty-free (of course) and 100% Titanium Dioxide free (studies have shown this chemical to be carcinogenic). It also contains cucumber and marshmallow extracts to hydrate and soothe. Aloe Vera, apricot kernel oil, carrot seed and organic macadamia nut oil join the party to nourish and reduce fine lines! It also has natural SPF! That’s a lot of fantastic natural ingredients, but how did it work?!

This foundation has a mousse-like, whipped consistency with a sweet, powdery floral scent. When I worked this foundation into my skin, it gave me light coverage with a radiant, satin finish. I have some serious redness in my cheeks, so it showed through, as it does with most foundations. It did reduce my redness to give my face a more finished look. The formula is buildable, so I was able to achieve light to medium coverage.

This foundation is described to be “your skin, only better” which is 100% accurate! I will definitely use this foundation in my day to day routine, especially when I want a natural glow. I will note that I had the most success applying and blending this foundation with my fingers.

Next up, is the Mineral Magic Veil, which I absolutely love! It contains organic rice powder and kaolin clay to absorb oil (goodbye shiny forehead!), and silk mica which gives this powder gorgeous, shimmery radiance. It is meant to blur imperfections and fine lines, which it did! It is pretty much an Instagram filter that you apply to your face to make your skin look healthy! You get 10 grams of product so the container will last a very long time! I really like this finishing powder and it is now part of my makeup routine!

The Bottom Line

I recommend these products from MG Naturals to anyone that wants great makeup without all of the toxins found in typical cosmetics. The Airbrush Miracle Liquid Foundation gives the loveliest satin finish on the skin while giving natural-looking coverage. The Mineral Magic Veil blurs imperfections and makes your skin look photoshopped! When used together, your skin looks effortlessly gorgeous while soaking in ingredients that are actually good for your skin! You can’t beat that! Head on over to their website to check out all of their products!

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!

Soothing Sloth Bath Bomb Reviews

Company: Soothing Sloth Soap Co.

Products:

Hey Girl Bath Bomb

Frootylicious Bath Bomb

Hello Lover Bath Bomb

Sunset Sorbet Bath Bomb

Reviews:

If you love pretty floral fragrances, you'll love the Hey Girl Bath Bomb! It slowly fizzes around your bath while turning the water a gorgeous and shimmery light pink shade while making your bathroom smell like a bouquet of fresh cut flowers thanks to gardenia, cherry blossom and cedar wood. It leaves the scent behind on your skin so you can even skip perfume!

The Frootylicious Bath Bomb smells like candy and is a fun, energizing way to take a bath! It's sweet fruity fragrance lingers on the skin long after your bath is over. Berries, white tea and ginger combine to creates unique scent while Kaolin clay and coconut oil moisturize and purify the skin.



The Hello Lover Bath Bomb has a sweet and sexy scent and turns your bath water into a deep sapphire blue shade. I soaked in the bath for a long time and felt like I was floating in the ocean at sunset. This scent reminded me of something but I couldn't put my finger on it. After the bath, my boyfriend said it reminded him of Love Spell, and gosh darn it, he was right! It smells very reminiscent of Victoria's Secret signature Love Spell scent, without all of the chemicals and unnecessary junk. Lavender essential oil helps you to unwind while coconut oil softens your skin. You will love this one!

The Sunset Sorbet Bath Bomb's scent is as bright as the sun with its citrusy notes and vibrant colors. Lemongrass essential oil, kaolin clay and coconut oil are the star ingredients of this little show stopper. It slowly fizzes in the tub and creates swirls of yellow, orange and pink. It really looks like a picturesque sunset that you could spend hours looking at!

The Bottom Line

Besides the awesome name, Soothing Sloth Soap Co. creates fabulously scented bath bombs that completely transform your bath water and transports your senses. They are carefully handmade in Cleveland with surfactants that are much milder than other big competitors like Lush. This makes them suitable for children and much less likely to cause skin irritation (Yay!). Kaolin clay detoxes and purifies the skin while coconut oil naturally hydrates, so you get clean and deliciously fragranced skin!

I wish blogs were "Scratch and Sniff" because these bath bombs are so fragrant and beautiful they have definitely become one of my favorite brands (and I've tested a lot of bath bombs!). I will absolutely be including them in my upcoming Holiday Gift Guide, so stay tuned for that!

I highly recommend these products to anyone looking for bath bombs that are fun, high quality, and suitable for all skin types! Be sure to stop by their website to check out these bath bombs and their new skin care products. You'll be glad you did!

Thank you, Soothing Sloth Soap Co., for sending me these amazing bath bombs to review!

NW Beauty Works Reviews

Company: NWBeautyWorks

"Handmade, Vegan & Cruelty-Free!"

Products:

Daily Acne Cleanser

Cucumber & Cranberry Moisturizer

Warm Vanilla Sugar Lotion

Reviews:

Warm Vanilla Sugar Lotion contains Organic Shea Butter, Aloe Leaf Juice, Organic Coconut Oil, and Grapeseed Oil to hydrate even the driest skin (I would know!). To be honest, the skin on my feet gets so dry sometimes I can't even sleep at night, it's that uncomfortable! If a moisturizer can help my feet, it'll help anybody!

Within minutes of massaging this product into my skin, it was noticeably softer, smoother, and more comfortable. The sweet vanilla scent will leave a subtle scent behind, but it is not overpowering and will not compete with any other fragrances or products you are wearing.

Daily Acne Cleanser has a very strong fragrance of lemon and tea tree oil. It will definitely wake you up in the morning! Lemon is known to fade scars and brighten skin, while tea tree oil is known to kill bacteria to fight breakouts.

Cucumber & Cranberry Moisturizer is intended to be used all over the body without any greasiness. It's a very thin, gel consistency that smells primarily of cucumber. I'm not the biggest fan of cucumber in general, so I let my boyfriend try this one out! He used it and reported having softer, hydrated skin.

The Bottom Line

NW Beauty Works makes vegan, cruelty-free products that contain good for you ingredients without all of the chemicals and bad stuff. If you enjoy natural fragrances in products to moisturize and care for your skin, this brand is for you! Check out their website to learn more about their products and what they have to offer!
