Cleansing Mouthwash

Natural Teeth Whitening Pen

Review:

Woooo! I am so EXCITED to have found Dr. Brite’s products! Did you know that traditional toothpaste contains harmful chemicals and ingredients, not to mention they may be tested on animals (WHY?!). Dr. Brite’s toothpaste, mouthwash, and whitening pen contain natural, good for you ingredients that get the job done!

Take a look…

The Whitening Mineral Toothpaste contains coconut oil and vitamin C to kill bacteria and improve your gums. Have you heard of oil pulling? I personally have never tried it, but I’ve wanted to. It is basically when you swish coconut oil around in your mouth every day to clean and whiten your teeth. So, this toothpaste is very similar to oil pulling! The spearmint flavor is the perfect… not too weak that your mouth feels dirty after using it and not too strong that it is overpowering. After using this, my teeth, mouth, and gums felt thoroughly cleaned and refreshed! This is a winner for me!

I was very interested to try out the Cleansing Mouthwash because it contains activated charcoal and vitamin C. I have used activated charcoal teeth whitening powders in the past, and they do an excellent job whitening my teeth (but they’re messy as hell!). This mouthwash eliminates the mess and leaves your mouth feeling clean and healthy!

The Natural Teeth Whitening Pen is incredibly easy to use and promises to whiten up to 2 shades in two days! It contains coconut oil and hydrogen peroxide to lighten stains. I’m always a little skeptical when it comes to teeth whiteners because I drink coffee all day long, and my “pearly whites” tend to be stained most of the time.

I applied this whitening pen 1 or 2 times a day for 5 days in a row. All you do is click the back of the pen and the whitening gel comes out of the other side. It takes less than a minute to paint all of your teeth, and you’re good to go! The gel formula stays put so you can go to sleep or go do whatever you need to without worrying that the product will drip all over the place. I did notice some tingling around my gums, but that is normal for whiteners that contain hydrogen peroxide. I can say with confidence that this whitening pen has significantly whitened my teeth after only a few days, with no sensitivity after using it. If you are someone with sensitive teeth, there is a peroxide free whitening pen available.

The Bottom Line

These 3 products are incredible, I’m in love! Dr. Brite uses natural, organic, plant-based and non-GMO ingredients so I know that  I am not using dangerous chemicals, which is so important. My teeth look and feel cleaner and healthier than ever. My teeth are noticeably whiter and brighter and I will absolutely continue to use these products!

I highly recommend these products to anyone and everyone that is looking to get rid of nasty chemicals in their day to day routine. Also, with every purchase, Dr. Brite “provides safe everyday products that are free of harmful ingredients to people in need.”

The kind people at Dr. Brite have given me a discount code to share with you! Use code “VEGANTREASUREHUNTER” to get 10% off!

Thank you, Dr. Brite, for sending me these products to review!

Not Soap Radio – Blackberry and Vanilla Pheromone Activation Detox + Hydrate Fragrance

Company: Not Soap Radio

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!

Apres Sun Body Oil (8 oz/226g) – $29.00 USD

Apres Sun Body Soak (8 oz/226g) –  $32.00 USD

Reviews:

Moon Luv  is a new company that creates cruelty-free, vegan products that are truly luxurious and unique. Their raw ingredients are sourced from all over the world, and each product line features a specific crystal. The Apres Sun Summer Collection (meaning After the Sun) features Citrine, a crystal known to carry the power of the sun. Admittedly, I am not a crystal expert, but I have always been interested in them. After a little research, I found that Citrine comforts and energizes while turning negative thoughts into positive ones… How cool is that?!

The Apres Sun Body Polish is a perfect scrub to use before you hit the beach to tan. It's vibrant yellow color and bright fruity scent is perfect for summer! This truly special scent smells of pink grapefruit and mango, and possibly a little bit of sunshine!  The scrub is made of cornmeal, which is a very gentle, yet effective exfoliant. This body scrub left my skin feeling soft and smooth. Cocoa butter, almond oil, and shea butter work together to hydrate the skin to prepare it for some time in the sun!

The Apres Sun Body Oil is made to be used under your SPF. It contains raspberry seed oil that has a natural SPF of 28-40, while Shea oil, Buriti and Ucaaba oils moisturize and nourish. This oil is thin and is easily massaged into the skin. It leaves a sheen, which is perfect for showing off those arms and legs you worked so hard for all year (push ups and squats for days, am I right?).

The Apres Sun Body Soak is an awesome, unique product. Have you ever soaked in a tub full of crystals? I couldn't say that I had, until trying this. This body soak has the same bright scent as the body polish, maybe even a little bit stronger. It contains Citrine crystals and aloe, making it the perfect after-sun skin treatment. While you're soaking, you can't help but feel happy and energized while your skin is softened and pampered.

I was also given a sample of Moon Luv Hibiscus Coconut Monoi Bath Soak, which I must admit, was one of my favorite bath products to date! The scent of Gardenias, Hibiscus, Lilac, Jasmine, and Coconut fill your bathtub and calm your senses. This soak contains Rose Quartz, the stone of love, beauty, and fertility. Dead Sea Salt and strawberries detox and tone the skin while the sophisticated floral fragrance melts your worries away!

The Bottom Line

Moon Luv Vegan Skin Care is a high quality, luxury skin care line. Their products are made with ingredients that you really don't see everywhere, and the scents are truly special. The frosted glass packaging of the body polish and soaks, along with the metallic bronzey-gold lids, look fantastic on top of your vanity or counter.

The Apres Sun Summer Collection is the perfect line to nourish and protect your skin after summertime sun exposure! I recommend these products to anyone that is looking for luxurious ingredients, bright summery scents, and crystals to energize your senses!

Thank you, Moon Luv Vegan Skin Care, for sending me these products to review!

 

Georgia Charms Cosmetics Product Reviews 

Company: Georgia Charms Handmade Cosmetics  

“Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars and More”

“I believe in the therapy of natural cosmetics. Sometimes all you need to turn your day into a happy one is a hot bath, a beautiful bath bomb, and a good book. I love providing people with things that they will enjoy and brighten their day. Enjoy the little things in life!”

Products:

Mother of Unicorns 40 oz. XXXL Bath Bomb – $15.00 USD

Rose Glow Pearl Priming and Setting Mist (2.7 oz. – $12.00 USD)

Cool As A Cucumber Facial Toner (2.7 oz – $7.95 USD)

Reviews:

Let’s just jump right in and talk about the GIANT BATH BOMB in the room! The Mother of Unicorns 40 oz. XXXL Bath Bomb is everything you could ever want in a bath bomb… just a lot more of it! Everything from the sweet strawberry fragrance, the bright pink, yellow, and blue colors to the biodegradable glitter is absolutely fantastic! Not gonna lie, I had a hard time waiting to take pictures of this. I just wanted to throw it in the tub to watch what happens! To put the size of this Mother of Unicorns Bath Bomb into perspective, a Lush bath bomb is 6.3 ounces. This bad boy is over 6 times as big! Now that is a big mother (of Unicorns)!

Once I dropped this gigantic bath bomb into the tub, it fizzed and danced around for over 2 minutes! It swirled the beautiful pink, yellow, and blue colors to create the bathtub masterpiece you see above! See the “V” for vegan?! Once the bubbles disappeared you’re left with gorgeous amethyst colored water that I just didn’t want to put down the drain! I do have to note that my bathtub was stained a bright magenta color which required me to scrub it with bleach. It’s a good idea to clean your tub after each use, so it wasn’t too big of a deal. Totally worth it!


The Rose Glow Pearl Priming and Setting Mist is another super unique product from Georgia Charms. It’s a primer and setting spray made with homemade rose water and aloe vera juice to hydrate and nourish the skin, witch hazel to purify, and natural mica to give ya some shimmer! It has a light, natural, powdery rose fragrance and the shimmer is a golden tone that makes tanned summer skin and pretty much all skin tones look GORGEOUS!
This spray is not shy with the shimmer, so 1-2 sprays is all you need. Unless of course, you want to look like a Golden Globe Award, which is cool, too. I did have a few instances where the pump got stuck, and when I tried again, I got a ton of product on me. So, I suggest giving it a practice pump, then spraying it onto your face. This product really does give your skin a nice and summery glow while giving it a kiss of hydration. I sprayed it on my collar bones and arms to look like the mermaid I was born to be, because why the heck not?


The Cool as A Cucumber Soothing Facial Toner is a nice and refreshing treat for ya skin! Aloe vera and witch hazel hydrate your pretty little face while cucumber extract cools and calms. This is perfect for hot summer days and nights when you don’t want to use a heavy moisturizer but still want a little something on your skin. The fine mist smells of fresh cucumbers and quickly absorbs into the skin, making it the perfect for using under your makeup or moisturizer.

The Bottom Line

The Mother of Unicorns XXXL Bath Bomb is probably the most fun I’ve ever had taking a bath! I highly recommend trying this, or any of the other XXXL bath bombs out. The Rose Glow Setting Mist is a great product, just be careful with the pump! The Cool as a Cucumber Soothing Facial Toner is nice and refreshing, and I would recommend it to anyone that likes the smell of cucumber! Georgia Charms makes unique, high-quality products that are fun to use and great for your skin. Head on over to their site to check out all that they have to offer!

Product: Sterling Silver Whale Tail Necklace – $27.00 USD



Review:

The pictures speak for themselves this time! Look at this cute 100% Sterling Silver necklace! It’s made high-quality silver and matches any outfit! The front of the whale tail catches the light and has a brilliant shine, while the back of the tail has “Save the Fishies” engraved into it. The dainty chain is 16″ long and there are multiple loops for adjusting the length. I truly love this necklace and the fact that 10% of Sand Cloud’s profits are donated to the awesome organizations listed above.
