Reviews:

If you’re new to my blog… Hello! Thanks for stopping by!  If not, you probably know that I review a lot of skincare. A LOT. 

That’s why I am thrilled to share my review of O.W.L.’s products with you because they are truly special and exceptional!!! 

Organics With Love PURITY Cleansing Water

The PURITY Cleansing Water gently removes your makeup without over-drying your skin. It has a fresh, invigorating herbal scent. Rose water, tea tree, and lavender cleanse and nourish the skin while removing the day’s makeup, sweat, oil, etc. Of course, the more make up you wear, the more product you will need to use. I have been a fan of the double cleansing method for a long time to make sure that my skin is super clean. If I had a full face of make up, I liked using this cleansing water after using a makeup wipe to remove everything that was left behind (you’d be shocked how much makeup is left on your skin if you only cleanse once!). I definitely could have only used this cleanser to get a clean face but I stick to my double cleansing most of the time!

Wild Rose Complexion Mist

The WILD ROSE Complexion Mist is a fantastic way to quickly hydrate your skin before applying a facial oil, serum, or moisturizer. Rose water, aloe, witch hazel, and hibiscus flower give your face a nice dose of hydration that can be used whenever your skin needs a little pick-me-up! As part of your daily skincare routine, you can apply 3-4 sprays on your face. When your skin is still damp, you apply the facial oil (discussed below) to really seal the moisture into your skin. This technique is the absolute best way to get the most our of your skincare products!

The RESTORE Age-Defying Facial Serum is so luxurious! From its rosy pink hue to it’s gorgeous floral scent, this facial oil is sure to become you favorite! It feels luxurious because it truly is luxurious! This serum is packed with skin-loving ingredients like Cranberry Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Pumpkin Seed oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Helichrysum Oil, Rose Damascena Oil, and Carrot Seed Oil. All of these ingredients combine to moisturize, fight signs of aging, slow down collagen destruction, repair free radical and environmental damage, purify the skin, reduce discoloration and scarring, and improve elasticity and firmness! What more could you possibly want?

At first, I was a little skeptical when it came to applying this facial oil with a Rose Quartz tumbled stone, as the instructions suggest. I have never used anything like this before… I mean, why can’t I just apply the oil with my fingers like I always do? (of course, you can apply it will your fingers if you want to!)

Oh, how wrong I was! Applying this facial oil with Rose Quartz is just so enjoyable! Gliding the cool stone on my face felt so refreshing and relaxing and I truly looked forward to applying my skincare at the end of a long day! Can you really say that with a straight face about your current skin care? I know I couldn’t before! 

This serum really made my skin look hydrated and radiant! My cheeks were noticeable less red and I did not break out from this what-so-ever. Yay! I only needed around 5 small drops to cover my entire face and it made my skin look fresh and dewy. I had no problem applying my make up on top on it. This stuff is amazing and stole my heart!

The Bottom Line

When you use O.W.L. products, you really feel like you’re using something special and that’s because you are! The ingredients are so nourishing that your skin will absolutely glow! The packaging is sleek and gorgeous and the scents are so natural and fresh! I truly enjoy this line of products from Organics With Love and highly recommend them to anyone that loves high quality skin care that is vegan, cruelty-free and delivers results!

Products:

Lemon Multi-Purpose Cleaner (25 fl. oz) $7.49 USD

Peppermint Air Freshener (4 fl. oz.) $6.50 USD

Review:

Are the cleaners you are using safe? Sure, they may have pictures of happy families and pets in their ads… but are they really safe to breathe in and touch? Standard cleaners (think Lysol, Clorox) contain harsh irritants that can cause serious damage to your skin, eyes, and lungs. Sure, they clean pretty well, but is it worth your health? Not to mention, those products are definitely tested on animals. How ridiculous!

I made the switch to natural products a few years ago and have never looked back! That’s why I was thrilled to try out this multipurpose cleaner and air freshener from Absolute Green!

The Lemon Multi-Purpose Cleaner contains plant-based surfactants, sugar-derived alcohol, and fruit oils to make a completely safe and effective cleaner! It has a natural lemon scent that is noticeable yet not overwhelming. It comes is a large 24 fl. oz. bottle with a powerful spray nozzle. It is great for appliances, grease, showers, tile, sinks, floors, mirrors, and just about any solid surface!

The one place in my home that always seems to be messy is my glass top range. It somehow always has dried food or smudges on it (it honestly makes me a little crazy!), so naturally this is the first place I used this cleaner. I am happy to report that it cut through grease, dried on tomato sauce (I really don’t know how it got there in the first place), and whatever else was there. I let the cleaner sit on the surface for a few minutes and it wiped completely clean! My cooktop was sparkly and smelled wonderful! I also used it to clean my sinks and it did a fantastic job there, as well. This cleaner gets an A+!

Next up, is the Peppermint Air Freshener. In all honesty, I stopped using air fresheners a long time ago. The thought of my pets breathing in all of those toxic chemicals was too much for me and I swore them off for good. I was so excited to give this all natural air freshener a try! It only contains a few ingredients: water, sugar-derived alcohol, peppermint oil, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, and Polysorbate 20.

Listen, let’s get real for a minute. If you’re vegan and you live with a non-vegan, you may notice that after they visit the bathroom that their *business* smells particularly bad. Now, I’m not saying that vegan $hit doesn’t stink, but holy moly meat and dairy do not having any redeeming qualities, including the bathroom odor it produces once digested.

If there was ever a test for an air freshener, using it after my non-vegan boyfriend visited the little boy’s room was it! I hyped myself up, walked into the bathroom and sprayed 3-4 times in the air. Within seconds, the bathroom was filled with the most refreshing peppermint scent… no poo detected! Seriously, if you knew how incredible the before and after was in that bathroom, you’d fall out of your chair!

The Bottom Line

Absolute Green products are a necessity in everyone’s home. There is no reason to put your family’s health at risk for the sake of cleaning. Natural products are the new standard and I highly recommend these products to keep your home clean, safe, and smelling fantastic!

Thank you, Absolute Green, for sending me these wonderful vegan and cruelty-free products to review!

Reviews:

Hello, hello! Welcome back fellow vegan treasure hunters! I’m excited to share these skincare products with you, so let’s jump right in!

When I try out new skincare products, I always ask the same questions:

  1. Is it vegan and cruelty-free?
  2. Is it made with natural ingredients?
  3. Is it effective?
  4. Is it reasonably priced?

KINDri‘s products check all of these boxes! They’re vegan and cruelty-free (of course!) and made with naturally nourishing ingredients. They do a wonderful job hydrating and caring for the skin and are priced just right! As a bonus, the packaging is beautiful!

The Cactus & Rose Illuminating Face Oil smells like a bouquet of fresh flowers. This golden oil absorbs quickly into the skin to deliver noticeably results. Take a look at the ingredients!

Screen Shot 2018-02-01 at 1.11.01 PM

These ingredients work together to heal, calm, and hydrate to give you  glowing, youthful skin! I used this in the AM and PM, and even mixed a little into my foundation for a dewy finish! This oil took the place of my moisturizer and eye cream because I simply didn’t need them when I used this!

The Cactus & Rose Healing Beauty Balm does it all! This beauty balm is formulated to heal even the driest skin by using the best natural moisturizers out there! Take a look!

Screen Shot 2018-02-01 at 1.23.49 PM

With vitamins and fatty acids galore, this balm calms inflammation, improves hydration, protects from the elements, maintains elasticity, and inhibits water loss. Just put a dab wherever you need it and you’re good to go!

I loved using this on my super chapped lips and hands (winter has not been kind!). The floral scent is absolutely gorgeous and the thick, yet easily absorbed formula instantly delivers much needed moisture and forms a barrier between your skin to protect against the frigid winter temps. Put it on your lips before going to bed and you will wake up with a perfectly moisturized pout. A little goes a long way, so the jar will last for quite some time!

The Bottom Line

KINDri makes vegan and cruelty-free products that protect, hydrate, and enhance the natural beauty of your skin. The plant-based ingredients are packed with vitamins and fatty acids that improve the quality of your skin almost immediately and nourish your skin to keep you looking youthful.

I highly recommend these products to anyone and everyone that wants simple to use products that will give you glowing, healthy skin!

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

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!

Reviews:

I was so excited to try out these skincare products from Flawless Beauty Essentials! These products are full of naturally powerful ingredients that help to reveal healthy, glowing skin! Of course, they are vegan and cruelty free… so let’s jump right in! If you just want a quick recap, skip to “The Bottom Line” at the end of this post.

I’m going to start with my favorite product that I tried, the Rejuvenating Anti-Oxidant Mask. I’ll get into all of the fantastic ingredients in a minute, but the best part of this mask is the scent! To me it smells like a delicious blend of berries and tea… my boyfriend said it smelled like raspberry yogurt. Whatever the scent, it is seriously one of the best smelling products I have ever put on my face!

Ok, so what’s in it? Organic Green Tea, Rosehip, and Vitamin C combine together to help fight free radicals, dullness, and signs of aging.  Kaolin Clay detoxifies and exfoliates to remove dead skin cells. 6.5 % Glycolic Acid penetrates the layers of the skin to speed up cell rejuvenation and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This formula is made to correct skin issues and I’m a huge fan! It definitely made my skin brighter, smoother, and softer with just one use. This will be a weekly skin treatment for me (if I don’t eat it all first! Haha, I probably won’t do that but it really does smell good enough to eat).

Next up, is the Vitamin C Serum that is formulated to brighten and tighten your skin without over-drying your pretty little face. This bad boy contains “a concentrated delivery system for the highest form of active, bio- available vitamin C for beautiful skin without the dryness that can often come with it.”

This is an interesting product! I love Vitamin C serums because of the healthy glow they give the skin. This serum is no different! I applied 1-2 pumps of this in the morning. It is instantly absorbed and has a noticeable tightening effect.  I don’t have sagging skin, but I imagine this would help those that want their face to look tightened and toned. After over a week of using this product, I do notice that my skin looks brighter and healthier.

Next, and probably the product I was most curious about, is the Niacinamide Serum – Vitamin B3 5%. So, what are these things and how do they help the skin? Vitamin B3 helps to hydrate, shrink pores, tighten skin, and even helps to improve acne, rosacea, and hyper-pigmentation. This anti-inflammatory formula also helps to boost collagen production which is essential for reducing and preventing wrinkles for youthful looking skin.

I used 1-2 pumps of this serum before bedtime. Like the Vitamin C Serum, it absorbed into my skin within seconds. It has a thick, gel-like consistency and a fresh, subtle scent. I used this all over my face including the eye area. I have fair, Irish skin and redness is something we pale-skinned girls experience every day.  Using an anti-inflammatory product helps to calm the skin, which I noticed happening after using this serum.

Next up,  is the Daily Facial Moisturizer. No matter your skin type, using a daily moisturizer is very important if you want your skin to look its very best. I really like this product! My skin has been drier lately, probably because I haven’t been drinking as much water as I usually do in warmer months and because of the single-digit temps. we have been fighting our way through in North Carolina!

This is the perfect everyday, anytime moisturizer. I used 1 pump in the AM and PM after the serums discussed above. Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil provide deep hydration without making your skin looks greasy. It absorbs within minutes and makes your skin look naturally healthy. I will absolutely keep using this!

Last, is the Ageless Eye Serum. Whether you are new to skincare, or you’re looking for a new eye product, this one has got it all! Vegan Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides improve “dark circles, wrinkles, sagging, puffing, loss of plump and firm skin, loss of tone, loss of resilience, and swelling.” Well… what more could you want???

This serum has a gel-like consistency and you only need the smallest amount of product to cover the under eye area, so the bottle will last for quite some time. It glides on easily and absorbs after a few minutes. For me, it had a slight cooling and tightening effect and definitely hydrated my under eyes thanks to Aloe and Vitamin E. It is very important to moisturize this area to reduce and preventing fine lines, but you don’t want a product that is too heavy and slides off. You need a natural eye product that quickly absorbs to deliver results, which is exactly what this little guy does.

The Bottom Line

If you want vegan, cruelty-free products that are full of natural ingredients, Flawless Beauty Essentials is for you. After using the products above, my skin looks healthier, smoother, and younger. It is also noticeably more hydrated and calmed. Whether you are looking for the perfect daily moisturizer, a treatment mask to rejuvenate your skin, or a fantastic eye serum, you will find a product you will love from Flawless Beauty Essentials.

SMOOTH CRIMINÁLE Body Scrub

HOSTILE TAKEOVER Body Oil

Review:

Ooh Baby, it’s cold outside… and you know my skin is as dry as a bone! If your skin is anything like mine, the second the weather drops it gets extremely dry, red, and cracked (not cute). I’m always up for trying new vegan and cruelty-free products that can help, so I was very excited to try out this body scrub and body oil from Swift Heist Beauty!

Using a moisturizing body scrub is a sure-fire way to keep your skin looking smooth and glow-y! The SMOOTH CRIMINÁLE Body Scrub is a sugar scrub that gently polishes away dead skin cells to reveal radiant skin. This scrub rinses away easily and has a gorgeous coconut and rose scent that leaves your skin delicately fragranced. The star ingredients of this scrub are coconut oil, shea butter, and sweet almond oil, so you know your skin’s going to feel great!

I used this scrub all over my body, including my insanely dry feet (I honestly don’t know how feet can be as dry as mine and not fall off!). I’m happy to report that with just one use, my feet were softer, smoother, and felt more comfortable! Goodbye dull looking skin!

After using the body scrub, I slathered on the summery, lime-scented HOSTILE TAKEOVER Body Oil. This body oil deeply moisturizes and improved my poor, struggling winter skin. I love that it has a bright lime scent that helped me forget that it is below freezing temperatures outside.  This body oil has a thin consistency that quickly and easily absorbs into the skin, giving you instant hydration and a healthy looking sheen, thanks to Grape seed oil, Camellia Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, and Aloe! I’m in love!

The Bottom Line

Swift Heist Beauty offers high quality, beautifully scented products with natural ingredients that deliver fast results!

The SMOOTH CRIMINÁLE Body Scrub is the perfect way to scrub away dead skin cells for fresh, smooth looking skin!

If you have desperately dry skin like I do, I highly suggest ditching the lotions and creams. Just go straight for some body oil! I’m not exaggerating when I say that my skin looked so SOmuch better after using the HOSTILE TAKEOVER Body oil just a few times!

I also really enjoy the sleek, glass packaging (yay, no plastic!) and the simple yet stylish black and white labels of the products.

I highly recommend these fantastic vegan and cruelty-free products from Swift Heist Beauty to get, or to keep your skin looking summer-ready all year round! Head on over to their website to see all of the products that they have to offer!

Corkor’s Gorgeous Cork Bags… Perfect for the Eco-Fashionista on Your Holiday Shopping List!

Company: Corkor

IMG_7247

Corkor’s Goals:

“Sustainability is one of the biggest issues of our times. It touches many aspects of our lives, right down to the materials we choose to buy. In these defining times where our choices can and will define the future of the planet, cork stands out as the number one eco–friendly raw material.

At Corkor, we feel we can truly make a difference by providing people with a premium, eco–friendly alternative to other highly polluting products. Cork is good for the environment in more than one way: recyclable, reusable and sustainable, cork is also a high–end alternative to leather. Beautiful, sustainable and vegan accessories are our contribution to a better, greener world.”

Why Cork?

“The extraction of cork also maintains the vitality of the “Montado” habitat and promotes multiple economic, environmental and social gains, allowing for thousands of people to go on living and working in otherwise deserted areas of Portugal.”

waterproof, buoyant, elastic, fire resistant and unique in its appearance, it is a naturally harvested material, mainly originating in the cork oak forests located in the Iberian Peninsula (Portugal and Spain).”

Product: Cork Clutch Natural

Review:

Every girl needs a good clutch for nights out or days that you don’t want to carry around a huge bag. That’s why I am so excited to share Corkor’s Cork Clutch Natural with you! If this is your first time to my website (welcome!), you must know that my style is quite casual and based on comfortable, multi-purpose pieces with a rock and roll flair! Of course, my main interest is vegan, cruelty-free fashion!

IMG_1412.jpgOk, let’s start with the basics! The dimensions of this clutch are 7.5″ long x 4.7″ wide x 2″ inches deep, so it is roomy enough to fit all of your essentials like your phone, wallet, and other necessities. This bag is made of smooth, durable cork from Portugal (yes, the same stuff that tops your favorite wine bottle) that is water-resistant and super high quality.

The neutral color will match everything in your wardrobe which I truly appreciate because I seriously don’t have time to think about what bag matches my outfits on a daily basis!

I love that the natural cork gives it an earthy, eco-vibe while the super shiny, silver metal hardware gives it a classy and slightly edgy look (my fav!). This clutch easily transitions from a fun, daytime over the shoulder or crossbody bag to a sophisticated nighttime accessory, simply by removing the chain. I love multi-use products!

The Bottom Line

I adore this clutch! I love how it easily adds style to any outfit and is perfect for a casual trip to Whole Foods or for a night out! It truly is a special bag and you can count on people asking you about it when you wear it!

Using a sustainable material like cork is a genius idea! It just goes to show that leather and other animal products are not necessary to look fabulous! This clutch is sure to please anyone and everyone on your holiday shopping list!

Thank you, Corkor, for sending me this stunning clutch to review!

True Moringa Face, Hair, and Body Oil Review… a Multi-Purpose Product with a Mission!

Company: True Moringa

The Moringa Tree is also known as “The Miracle Tree” due to its ability to thrive with very little water and its nutritionally dense leaves. 100% cold-pressed Moringa oil that is ethically cultivated by small farming families in Ghana is the basis of True Moringa products. Moringa oil hydrates the skin, nourishes with antioxidants, restores tones and texture, soothes redness and damage, as well as minimizes signs of premature aging!

Best of all, with every purchase made through TrueMoringa.com, a Moringa tree is planted in your name which will help provide food security and sustainable income for small farming families in Ghana.

How AWESOME IS THAT!? Read more about their amazing story here!

Product: True Moringa Refresh Face, Hair & Body Oil

Review: You know who loves a great, multi-purpose product?! THIS GIRL DOES!

True Moringa’s 100% vegan oil can be used on your face, hair and body! The “Refresh” variety contains peppermint oil which gives it a nice, fresh minty scent that I really enjoyed.

I used 1 pump of this oil on my face in the morning for a dose of moisture. It works into the skin easily and leaves a silky finish on the skin. My makeup applied easily on top of it and my skin looked healthy and hydrated without looking greasy. I also used this on my insanely dry chapped lips and it really helped to heal them!

I also used this on my damp hair to eliminate frizz and on my dry hair to smooth fly aways. This product did a great job keeping my frizzy curls under control and left my locks smelling minty fresh!

I also used this as an all over moisturizer and it definitely helped to soften my super dry hands and elbows that were peeling and cracking (which they always seem to do now that the colder weather is starting to show up). With just a few applications, my hands and elbows were moisturized, less red and irritated, and overall the condition of my poor skin was drastically improved!

The Bottom Line

True Moringa makes fabulous, high-quality oils that deliver wonderful results! This multi-use product is  great for travel or for anyone that just wants to simplify their beauty routine with 1 do-it-all oil! It is perfect to throw into your purse or gym bag for an easy way to quickly hydrate your skin and hair!

I highly recommend True Moringa’s Face, Hair & Body Oil to anyone and everyone that enjoys clean beauty and helping people! This company has a great mission that gives back to people in need in Ghana, so you can feel great about your purchase! Of course, all of their products are vegan and cruelty-free… and pretty close to perfection in my opinion!

Thank you, True Moringa, for sending me this fantastic oil to review and for all of the wonderful work that you do to make the world a better place! Head on over to their website and check out all of the products that they have to offer!

Evolvh Luxury Natural Haircare – SmartStart Leave-in Conditioner and SmartCurl Wash/Conditioner Reviews

Company: Evolvh Luxury Natural Haircare

Products:

SmartCurl Hydrating Wash

SmartCurl Hydrating Conditioner

SmartStart Leave-in Conditioner

Reviews:

Let me start out by saying that my hair is super curly and dry. I have a hard time finding products that will moisturize my hair, enhance my curls, and fight frizz without weighing it down.

I am thrilled to share these products from Evolvh with you… I’m in love!

The SmartCurl line is a newly released range of products that are formulated to specifically address the needs of curly hair that I mentioned above.

Let’s start with the SmartCurl Hydrating Wash. In all honesty, I would buy this shampoo based on the scent alone! It smells SO fresh and clean with hints of florals and fruit. Its AH-MAZING! The formula is thick and luxurious and you only need a small amount of product to work into a rich lather. It rinses out easily and leaves your hair feeling thoroughly cleansed without being stripped of natural oils.

This shampoo contains nourishing plant-based ingredients like almond oil, kiwi seed oil, seaweed extract, mango, sunflower, wild pansy, and passion flower. No wonder it smells so good!

The SmartCurl Hydrating Conditioner has the same intoxicating scent as the shampoo (YASSS!). It also contains tons of plant-based, good-for-your-locks ingredients. Essential amino acids, fatty acids and botanicals work together to strengthen and soften your curls while fighting frizz. The consistency is thick (I don’t trust thin, drippy conditioners… they slide right out of your hair and barely moisturize), and easily works through even the most tangled of manes. As I do with all of my conditioners, I left this in my hair for about five minutes. It rinsed out quickly and my hair was tangle-free and ready to be styled.

The SmartStart Leave-in Conditioner contains fun, natural ingredients like oils from pumpkin seed, red raspberry seed, cranberry seed, citrus orange, grapefruit peel, patchouli and lemon peel. Whoa! So much plant-based goodness in one bottle! As you can imagine, it smells like a sweet, fruit-filled paradise!

When my hair was damp, I sprayed about 7 or 8 pumps on my just-past-shoulder-length hair. I combed it through with my fingers and just let it soak in. I usually use gel in my hair, but for the purposes of this review, I just let it air dry without any additional products.

The Bottom Line

I can’t think of anything negative to say about these products! After using them, my curls looked hydrated, defined, and bouncy! My frizz was drastically reduced and my hair smelled absolutely amazing! My hair was manageable, free of tangles, and just looked healthy! My sad little curls have definitely met their haircare soulmate!

I highly recommend these products! Thank you, Evolvh, for sending me these products to review!
