Stickers For Animals Review – Simple Activism That Anyone Can Do!

Company: Stickers For Animals

“10% of proceeds donated to animal protection non-profits”

“Printed on 100% recycled material”

Review:

Do you want a simple and effective way to educate people about the animal products that they are at the store to buy?

These activism stickers from Stickers For Animals have great information and pack a punch! I was sent the #DitchDairy stickers, which are perfect to stick on milk containers, cheese or other dairy products at the store.

Stickers For Animals has 20 sticker designs addressing different aspects of veganism and animal use which can be put just about anywhere to remind and inform people of what they are actually paying for with their money. Reminding people that with that carton of milk or package of meat, they are funding the torture and slaughter of innocent animals.

Generally, people choose not to think about how their food gets to their plate, but these stickers give them a quick wake up call. Activism at it’s finest!

The Bottom Line

Stickers For Animals makes activism simple and possible for everyone that wants to make a difference. If you are able to put a sticker on something, you are able to start standing up for animals! Gone are the days of having to be the “preachy vegan”! Just put a sticker on it!

These stickers are great conversation starters, not to mention they’re made of 100% recycled materials so they’re great for the earth as well! Stick them on products, in restaurants and stores… anywhere that could use some Animal Rights info!

I highly recommend these stickers to anybody that wants to speak up for animals!

 

Plaine Products – Natural Vegan Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Wash Reviews with Discount Code

Company: Plaine Products

Screen Shot 2017-08-03 at 2.32.09 PM

Products:

Shampoo (16 fl. oz. / 500 ml)

Conditioner (16 fl. oz. / 500 ml)

Body Wash (16 fl. oz. / 500 ml)

Reviews:

Ok, so I enjoy 98% of the products that I review, for one reason or another. Then…along came Plaine Products! I'm in love!

Their recycling program is a stroke of genius and really sets the bar for other companies to follow. Alright, let's jump right into the reviews!

Plaine Products come in sleek and sturdy aluminum bottles that are recycled after each use. It's simple. If you want to order more products, you simply visit their website and order some! When the new products arrive, you send back your old, empty bottles in the box your shipment came in, along with the shipping label that is included (so shipping back your bottles is FREE!). Plaine Products will refill and reuse your empty bottles. How cool is that?!

You can sign up for subscription services, so you never have to worry about running out of products, or you can order them as you need them. This eliminates all of the plastic waste that you would have accumulated if you were buying standard bath and body products.

Did you know that plastic virtually NEVER breaks down? It just collects in landfills, in our oceans, and in our environment. Think about that. That shampoo bottle that you used 15 years ago and haven't thought about since is polluting the earth somewhere. Doesn't make much sense, does it?

Ok, now we know that Plaine Products has a revolutionary recycling program that will help cut down on a tremendous amount of plastic waste, but how are the actual products?

The Shampoo is free of synthetic fragrances and dyes, petrochemicals, parabens, and sulfates. It is suitable for all hair types and is vegan and cruelty-free (of course!). The scent is a refreshing blend of rosemary, vanilla, and mint. It is herbal, sweet, and invigorating… it's pretty perfect in my humble opinion! The formula of this shampoo is thin, which makes it lather up and rinse out quickly. This shampoo left my hair feeling clean, soft, and noticeably shinier. That is really saying something because my hair is naturally curly and bleached, and just generally begs for help and hydration.

The formulation of the Conditioner is also a thin consistency, with the same fabulous Rosemary, Vanilla, and Mint fragrance. The star ingredients include Aloe, Sunflower and Jojoba Seed Oils, along with Shea and Mango butters.  I was a little worried that this conditioner wouldn't moisturize or detangle my hair enough because I am used to using heavy conditioners and hair masks. However, this conditioner is pretty awesome! It worked through my hair easily and actually lathered up a bit. It reminded me of a conditioning cleanser, which would be perfect for people that do not want to shampoo their hair frequently or have extremely dry locks. In combination with the shampoo, my hair was shiny, manageable, and smelled gorgeous!

The Body Wash has the same signature scent as the other 2 products. It lathered up easily and truly felt luxurious! My skin was left feeling soft and clean with a subtle fragrance. Coconut and Safflower Seed Oils, Vitamin E, Bamboo Silk, and Green Tea are just a few of the all organic, non-GMO ingredients that nourish and hydrate the skin. I just love natural products, they really are the best!

The Bottom Line 

I can't say enough good things about this company. Their mission to reduce plastic waste while giving customers healthy, vegan and cruelty-free products is absolutely inspiring! The products themselves make you feel like you're being pampered at a 5-star spa! Your hair will be clean, soft, shiny and manageable. Your skin will feel refreshed and nourished with just a hint of a sweet, minty fragrance.

You really can't go wrong with these products! You will help the environment and animals while taking care of your skin and hair. On top of all of that, these products are delivered right to your door! It doesn't get any better than that!

Head on over to their website to check out their subscription options! Use code "VTH" for 20% off of your order, and me me know how you like the products!

Thank you, Plaine Products, for sending me these fabulous products to review!

 

 

 

 

Blue Ridge Hemp Co. CBD Infused Product Reviews 

Company: Blue Ridge Hemp Co.

Screen Shot 2017-06-23 at 9.47.06 AMScreen Shot 2017-06-23 at 8.37.44 AM

“We have taken Industrial Hemp derived CBd and combined it with other ethically and sustainably source Terpene rich botanicals to form products that allow all people to harness the healing power of Cannabis.”

Products:


CBD Infused Roll-On Essential Oil Blend – Joint Care ( 10 ml, 50 mg CBD – $20.00 USD)

CBD Infused Massage & Body Oil ( 8 oz, 100mg CBD – $40.00 USD)

CBD Infused Salve ( 2 oz, 200 mg CBD – $50.00 USD)

All 3 Products – Joint Care Bundle (On Sale for $90.00 USD)

Info/Links:

So, if you’re anything like me, you may have questions about CBD. What is it? What is it used for? Is it legal? Don’t worry, Blue Ridge Hemp Co.’s website breaks this information down for ya! Click here for general info about the company/CBD or check out the science behind CBD.

Alright everybody, put your science hats on for a second. CBD (Cannabidiol) is a nonaddictive compound derived from Industrial Hemp that is known for its health effects, like reducing pain and inflammation and even improves anxiety and stress. It is not psychoactive (it doesn’t get you high) and does not contain THC (I told you, it won’t get you high!).  I highly recommend that you check out their website to become an expert, I mean, why not? This is interesting stuff!

Reviews:

Alright, let’s do this! The first product I tried was the CBD Infused Roll-On Essential Oil Blend – Joint Care. It comes packaged in a super handy roller ball and contains 10 ml of product with 50 mg of CBD. Grapeseed Oil is the base of this product, along with Cannabis Sativa L. Extract (CBD). Turmeric and White Willow Bark amp up the pain and inflammation fighting ability of this product, and essential oils from Pine, Juniper Berry, Rosemary, Lemon Peel, and Peppermint give this a unique herbal, woodsy fragrance that I honestly freakin’ love and look forward to!

I used the Roll-On about 3-4 times a day on my hands (my joints always hurt), feet, and temples. I love how convenient it was to take with me and how quickly I could apply it wherever I needed it. How effective was it? Well, keep reading or skip to The Bottom Line at the end of this post.

 

Next up, is the CBD Infused Massage & Body Oil. You get 8 oz with a 100 mg of CBD. This oil has the same fresh and woodsy scent as the Roll-On, and it is a thin oil with a bunch of moisturizing ingredients. It contains Sunflower, Sesame Seed, and Jojoba oils, which will leave your skin feeling hydrated after you use it (who doesn’t like a multi-functional product?!). It is mineral oil based, so if you avoid that or are sensitive to it, I suggest you look into the other products in Blue Ridge Hemp Co.’s wide range of products.

I used this massage oil on my hands and feet to reduce joint pain and stiffness. I did, however, forget that I fired my personal masseuse (sarcasm, I’m so cute), so I did not get to use it on my sore back except for the time my boyfriend got home early and helped me out. Thanks, babes! It is important to note that this oil has a higher concentration of CBD than the Roll-On.

Last but not least, is the CBD Infused Salve that contains 2 oz of product with 200 mg of CBD. This product is Mango Butter based and also contains Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, and Menthol. The scent is similar to the others, but you also get fruity notes and hints of cocoa with a slight cooling sensation from the menthol. I really like this scent! This product has the highest concentration of CBD. I used it at night time before bed on my hands and feet. It has the texture of a thick balm and a little bit goes a long way! It melts into your skin quickly and leaves behind the awesome scent!

The Bottom Line

I am so glad I got the opportunity to try out these products from Blue Ridge Hemp Co.! They are made with good-for-you ingredients, the packaging is dope, and the company itself is aimed at helping people deal with pain in a natural, vegan, and cruelty-free way (Tylenol, who?). Pretty awesome.

I would say that I have pretty severe pain in my hands, and I do feel that these products have decreased the pain and stiffness over the past week. With continued use, I am sure it will continue to help. If you have severe pain like I do, I highly suggest that you select the products with the highest concentration of CBD, like the salve and gel or give a bundle like this one a try. If you are looking for a product that is quick and easy to use on the go, definitely try out the Roll-Ons! They have a range of products that address muscle pain, joint pain, stress, and more. There are also body scrubs, lotions, and even transdermal patches that I definitely want to try out!

I highly recommend these products and enjoy using them! Thank you, Blue Ridge Hemp Co., for generously giving me these products to review! I truly enjoyed meeting you and will be a customer for life! Head on over to their website to learn more about CBD and sign up for a $10 off coupon on your order! They’re also on Instagram @BlueRidgeHempCo. Let me know how you like the products!

 

 

 

ahimsa Essentials Product Reviews

Company: ahimsa Essentials

“ahimsa Essentials is committed to providing you with earth-friendly, sustainable, cruelty-free and 100% plant-based (vegan) products that relieve, repair, and renew.”

Products

Glow Detoxifying Scrub (4 oz – $12.95 USD)

Om Organic Whipped Body Butter (4 oz – $12.95 USD)

Sublime Natural Deodorant (2 oz – $9.95 USD)

Reviews:


Organic Sugar, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Organic Essential Oils make up the all natural Glow Detoxifying Scrub. This scrub is the perfect way to relax and unwind while making your skin soft and smooth. The scent is bright and herbal, with basil being the prominent scent. Olive Oil is a wonderful moisturizer so you won’t need lotion or anything else when you step out the shower. The sugar makes this an abrasive yet not too rough exfoliator that will get rid of dead skin cells, old sunless tanners, you name it!


If you enjoy authentic floral scents, you will love the Om Organic Whipped Body Butter! The scent of Geranium and Juniper Berry will make you feel like you’re running through a garden, while Organic Shea Nut Butter hits you with powerful hydration! The texture is light and airy, and I liked using this product to seal in moisture right after the shower. This body butter made my skin looking healthy and dewy, and it was even hydrating enough for my dry-as-heck feet!


The Sublime Natural Deodorant is made for sensitive skin and is baking soda free. I have tried natural deodorants in the past that have irritated my skin, so I was excited to try this one out. The scent is Key Lime and Bergamot which you will smell throughout the day when you use this product. It is a nice and pleasant citrusy surprise! The texture is similar to a balm that melts into your skin when you massage it into your armpits. Shea Nut Butter and Coconut Oil moisturize while Arrowroot Powder absorbs odors. This deodorant was effective for me, and I only noticed the slightest bit of funkiness at the end of the day. I will definitely continue to use this!

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for all natural, vegan and cruelty-free products that are sustainably made, smell awesome and actually work, ahimsa Essentials is the brand for you. I love that they are fragranced with essential oils and the packaging is as cute as can be! I highly recommend these products and would love to hear your feedback about them! Head on over to ahimsa Essentials website and check out their range of products!

Thank you so much to ahimsa Essentials for these products to review!

Bloom Making Skin Happy Product Review

The products reviewed are vegan, cruelty-free, and organic!

Products:

Orange Blossom and Sunflower Nourishing Cleanser (6 oz. – $30.00 USD)

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!

 

 

 


Wild Vine Skin Care Volcanic Vice Facial Exfoliant Review

Company:  Wild Vine Skin Care

“Certified Organic, Natural, and Wild~Crafted Skin Care”

Screen Shot 2017-05-13 at 11.02.32 AM

Product: Volcanic Vice Exfoliant (4 oz, $25.00 USD)

Screen Shot 2017-05-13 at 11.07.21 AM

Review:



Sure, you have undoubtedly heard of exfoliators made with salt, sugar, or coffee… but have you ever heard of one that’s made with lava powder? I sure didn’t, and I couldn’t wait to try it out!

Along with the star of the show LAVA POWDER, this product contains aloe, pomegranate, and acai berry, to provide natural moisture and antioxidants. It has a beautiful citrus scent that perks up your senses as you use it. The lava powder makes this a gentle exfoliant that is suitable for sensitive skin.

This exfoliator foams up slightly with water and small grains help to wash away dead skin cells and debris. As you work the product into your skin, you can feel the lava powder doing its job, but it is not overly rough. After using this product, my skin felt and looked smooth, clean, and soft. It was not tight, dry, or irritated.  My face had a noticeable glow that made my skin look healthy and cared for.

The Bottom Line

I thoroughly enjoy using this Volcanic Vice Exfoliant. It is effective and leaves my skin looking radiant and feeling soft and smooth. I also love the values of this company. With zero carbon footprint, fair trade ingredients, and products that are vegan and cruelty free, Wild Vine Skin Care is an example of how companies can, and should be. I highly recommend this product, and look forward to trying more from this company. Give the Volcanic Vice Exfoliant a try and let me know how you like it!
