What Cruelty Free Hair Products Do I Actually Use?

Hi all! How are you? I hope you are having a great weekend. I just wanted to write a quick review on the  cruelty free hair products I use. To be honest, I don’t really do anything special to my hair. I do suffer from dandruff, and I tend to avoid putting a lot of products in my hair. Slowly but surely I am switching to organic hair care products. I purchased all of these cruelty free products at Target, and they cost less that $10.

Renpure Solutions Lavender Cleansing Conditioner

The basics of this cleansing conditioner is that is part of this whole new hair era, where you replace your shampoo for conditioner. I love the smell of this conditioner, plus it really made my hair soft. The only downside is that my scalp was sort of oily after washing my hair. I tend to only use 5 pumps when I wash my hair, and I leave it on for about 5 minutes.

Acure Clarifying Conditioner Lemongrass

This is the second conditioner that I have tried from Acure. I really love them both. I think the lemongrass smell is very clean, but it isn’t my favorite. It definitely makes my hair feel soft, and that is why I like it so much. I think for the price, product, and the fact that I got it at Target is a huge plus. Call me crazy, but I am the type of person to run to the grocery store when I’ve just finished a deodorant or shampoo. I don’t usually buy these products in bulk, but I should probably. This product is cruelty free, and vegan.

Andalou Naturals Argan & Sweet Orange Moisture Rich Shampoo

Okay first off this smell reminds me of an orange creamsicle, and that is probably why I like it most. I know, I know, I always have to say something about the smell of the product, but I mean when I’m reviewing the product I can always remember the smell. Anyway, I do have some dandruff after wearing this product, but it doesn’t irritate my scalp, and I don’t feel itchy. This is an organic, cruelty free, and vegan product.

Batiste Dry Shampoo

This is a vegan and cruelty free dry shampoo. Also this dry shampoo is super popular, and that’s because it gets the job done. I tend to not use this product often, because I still feel the need to wash my hair after I workout. I usually use this dry shampoo when I don’t feel like washing my hair.

Best Cruelty Free & Baking Soda Free Deodorants

For over a year now, I’ve been using cruelty free deodorant. Cruelty free deodorant is one of the most difficult products to transition to.

The ingredients in the deodorants for instance, made me feel itchy. That is when I found out that I was allergic to the baking soda in the cruelty free deodorant. I started looking at the ingredients before purchasing, and that’s when I started finding more information on green beauty products. In short, please read ahead to find out which cruelty free and baking soda free deodorants I use.

Meow Meow Deodorant Cream, Baking Soda Free, Grapefruit – $14

I bought this on Petit Vour’s website. To be honest, I really wanted the lavender scent, but it was sold out. I do like the grapefruit scent though, but I will definitely purchase the lavender scent next time. The grapefruit scent is subtle. What I do love about this cream is that it is very soft, I felt that with the Schmidt’s deodorant it was very rough to smooth on the skin. The deodorant is vegan, and is made with all organic ingredients which is a huge plus for me. I didn’t get itchy with this cream, nor did I get a rash, which is one thing I love about it. It doesn’t last all day though. I have to reapply once throughout the day, but I mean our bodies are meant to sweat, so I can’t get angry with the product. For the price, I do feel that it is a tad expensive, but I think it is worth it for a cruelty free, vegan, and organic deodorant.

Lavish Extra Gentle Deodorant Lavender + Melaleuca – $11.99

I found this deodorant on The Organic Bunny’s blog. I love that you can purchase it from Etsy, because it is one of my favorite websites to order from. This product comes from a small business. One reason why I love this product is because it is gentle, and it comes in a stick formula. I also have to apply this once throughout the day, because generally I am a sweaty person. I finished this product in a month, which made me wish it lasted longer.  The ingredients in this product are also organic, and it is handmade.

Review on Lily Lolo Mascara and Makeup Wipes

Alright I know I haven’t been posting as much, but I really wanted to post this review today. This is a review on the Lily Lolo mascara. This mascara has a lot of hype, and for good reason. I also wanted to review these makeup wipes that I purchased at Target. Please make sure to check out these products.

Lily Lolo Mascara

This mascara is amazing! I have been wanting to try this out for a long time. I heard a lot of great reviews about it, and now I can understand that it truly is great. As of now, I think this mascara is my number one, and number two would go to the Pacifica’s Dream Big mascara. I bought this mascara on Petit Vour for $20. I think this is a great product, and I only wish it was accessible in stores. My lashes were naked for a week, because I was waiting for it to come in the mail. Four coats of this mascara, and my lashes are voluminous and long. The one down side that I have noticed with this mascara is when I cry I kind of get this burning feeling. For that reason I try to fan myself when I’m laughing because I don’t want my eye to burn from the mascara. Other than that though I would repurchase!

Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Sensitive Skin Facial Wipes

So I went to Reno last weekend, and I’ve been just using coconut oil as makeup remover, but I didn’t want to carry a container of coconut oil when traveling. So I went to Target and got these wipes for $5.49. These wipes are biodegradable which was a bonus reason for buying them, because I’m always watching my carbon footprint. I really like these wipes because they don’t irritate my eyes. I have used a lot of wipes and makeup removers and they just hurt my eyes so much, that I’ve just stuck to using coconut oil to remove my makeup. But because I was traveling, I definitely wanted a makeup remover that was light in my duffle bag, and easy to use. I also love the rose scent!

Rosewater

Okay there isn’t much to say other than I love this scent. I use it as an aromatherapy scent, so if I feel like a need a pick me up, I think this scent makes me feel refreshed and energized. I also love putting this in my hair to make it smell good, and I will mist it on my face in the morning or at night. Overall I think everyone will likes this spray.

 

Let me know what you think! Have you tried any of these products?
