PERSONAL CARE & BEAUTY

  • Skylar Body (Perfume) I’ve tried a lot of different cruelty-free and vegan perfumes but these perfumes are by far my favorites! They have 4 to choose from, a spicy one, a fruity one, a clean one, and a floral one, but, fair warning, be prepared to fall in love with all of them because that’s what happened to me! #ScentWardrobe
  • Love Myself Organics Deodorant I’m a girl who runs hot so I need a deodorant that doesn’t mess around but is still healthy and natural -this one fits the bill perfectly! My favorite scent of the 3 they offer is called “Forever” and it is lightly scented of lavender. Fair warning, this stuff is a little harder in texture but with the warmth of your armpit it softens making it easier to apply! You can find this stuff on Amazon as well as on their website!
  • Pacifica (Makeup, skincare, hair products, & more!) Pacifica’s products are all wonderful but here are some of my personal favorites: Stellar Gaze mascara, any of their eyeshadows, any of their nail polishes, Vanilla Hibiscus lip tint, Tuscan Blood Orange perfume, Salty Waves texturizing shampoo, Salty Waves texturizing conditioner, Salty Waves texture spray, Ginger Root hair volumizing spray, and the Best Day Ever style extending balm!
  • Maui Moisture Shampoos & Conditioners Maui Moisture has other products in their line but I am absolutely addicted to their shampoos and conditioners -especially the bamboo ones! The scents are divine plus they are made with no sulfates, parabens, or silicone!
  • Lush Cosmetics (Makeup, skincare, hair products, & more!) Not everything at Lush is vegan but they do have a pretty extensive lineup of vegan products -and they clearly label what is vegan so that you don’t have to be constantly scanning ingredients lists! Some of my favorite products at Lush are their Happy Happy Joy Joy conditioner (which makes your hair smell like a flower), their lip scrubs, their Eyes Right mascara, and their Rosy Cheeks fresh face mask!
  • Petit Vour (Beauty Box Subscription Service) Every month I get a little box in the mail from Petit Vour that brings an instant smile to my face! Inside I usually find 4-5 sample-size cruelty-free and vegan makeup or beauty products and sometimes there’s even a full-size product in their too! Can it get any better?! Actually, yes! When I then go to Petit Vour’s website to purchase full-size versions of the samples, or to review the samples I got, I earn points which can be redeemed for cash off an order! Seriously, check Petit Vour out -you won’t be disappointed!
  • 100% Pure (Makeup, skincare, hair products, & more!) This is such a great company and they put out some of the best natural products I’ve ever tried! What I find most interesting is that everything that has color in it has been dyed with fruits, vegetables, teas, and other plants -so smart and so cool!
  • BOX Naturals Cleansing Towelettes Ladies, let’s be real here. We all have to deal with that time of the month and, when we do, we can sometimes be left feeling not so fresh. That’s when these cleansing towelettes come in oh so handy! Not only can you use these pH balanced, biodegradable, individually packaged towelettes around that time of the month but you can also use them in a multitude of other ways as well -I highly recommend them!
  • Alkmene Teebaumöl (Tea Tree Skincare & Personal Hygiene) Tea tree oil is so good for you and everything in this product line has tea tree oil in it! This stuff is great if you have sensitive or acne prone skin but honestly, even if I didn’t have such skin issues, I would still use this stuff because it smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling just as amazing! Just a little issue though, it’s a German brand so it’s kind of hard to find stateside but Amazon has some of their products (including my favorite, their facial wash) and you can find some of their other products elsewhere online. Find them, trust me, you won’t be sorry!
  • Seventh Generation Feminine Hygiene Products Seventh Generation makes everything from dishwasher detergent to paper towels (and they’re all great) but right now I want to talk about their line of feminine hygiene products. Their tampons, pads, and pantiliners are all organic, fragrance-free, and chlorine-free -best of all, they actually work! And you can find them at so many retailers both local to you and online so you never have to turn to “bad” feminine hygiene products again!
  • Preserve Products Shave 5 Razor System Razors aren’t generally tested on animals but I felt super weird about buying them from the major brands who do test their other products on animals. To remedy this, I went on the hunt for a razor from a 100% cruelty-free company and that’s when I found this gem of a product! These razors, which you can buy replacement blade cartridges for, are not only great but they’re environmentally friendly too and can even be found on Amazon!
  • The Konjac Sponge Company (Facial Cleansing Sponges) When I received my first Konjac sponge (in a Petit Vour beauty box) I was a little confused -the sponge was hard and didn’t really say to me, “rub me on your face.” But then, with a little water, the magic of the Konjac sponge was revealed -it instantly became soft and marshmallow-y! They can be used on body or face and with or without cleanser or body wash. They come in a variety of styles and shapes and they even have one designed specifically for freshly tattooed skin!
  • Mineral Fusion Nail Polish Remover This stuff is acetone-free, works great, and doesn’t smell like you’re bathing your nails in a bunch of toxic chemicals -cause you’re not! I find it at Whole Foods as well as on Amazon!
  • The Seaweed Bath Co. (Hair products, & more!) I love this company’s lavender shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and body cream! The lavender scent helps me relax and have a spa-like experience in the shower while the shampoo and conditioner leave my thin hair feeling thicker and stronger! I don’t believe everything that they make is vegan, though it’s all certified cruelty-free, but they do a good job labeling their vegan products (in the product descriptions on their website and on their labels) so have a browse and see what else you might like! Also available on Amazon!
  • Eco Tan My pale bod was desperately in need of a tan but I knew that I wasn’t about to sit out in the damaging sun -that method has never worked for me anyway as I’m a burner not a tanner. I wanted something faux, that wasn’t super chemically like traditional tanning products, and of course it had to be cruelty-free and vegan. In doing my research, I came across the Australian brand, Eco Tan, and quickly fell in love with their line of organic tanning products! Check ’em out if you’re ready for a little healthy color!
