Charcoal has been a super trendy ingredient in the past year, so I wanted to share my favorite products made with charcoal beauty products in them with you. This includes deodorant, skincare, and dental products all made with charcoal. As an ingredient, charcoal is said to help pull out impurities. With that in mind, it makes sense why it’s present in so many skincare products and even deodorants.
No matter what we celebrate, the holiday season is in full swing and we’re all out shopping and looking for great gift ideas for everyone on our list. I put together this Cruelty-Free Holiday Gift Guide to help make it a little easier for you! In this gift guide, I included a mix of makeup, skincare, hair care, and some things for the soul as well. I hope that it makes your holiday shopping a little easier!
I have tried just about every natural deodorant out there. And just about every natural deodorant out there has failed me. Some more than others, some less, but in general most have just simply not been effective. Reading through online reviews, I know that I’m not the only one with this issue. So many of us would love to use a natural deodorant but we also want one that works. When I was sent the Kaia Naturals The Takesumi Detox Deodorant to try out, I was skeptical at first but also completely intrigued.
The Kaia Naturals The Takesumi Detox Deodorant uses activated charcoal and other ingredients to help “detox” your pits. As stated on their website, “it will take approximately 2-4 weeks for your body to adjust to The Takesumi Detox and you will soon be back to normal.” I knew that this would be a process and I was excited to try it! I dedicated myself to using the Cold Pressed Rose formula using the Kaia Naturals deodorant detox instructions and wanted to share my results with you.
Claims: “With a combination of activated charcoal and natural fermentation technology which fights odor-causing bacteria, you will stay odor free all day. Activated charcoal has a porous surface that acts like a magnet, which chemically binds substances, such as bacteria and toxins to draw them out.”
It has been a few months since I did a favorites video, so this video is pretty long. I always love seeing what favorite products others are using, and I hope that you do as well! As always, everything in this video is vegan and from a cruelty-free brand. If you want to see the skincare, makeup, and lifestyle products I’ve been loving lately, grab a mug of tea and check out my cruelty-free August favorites.
Receiving the Petit Vour January 2016 Beauty Box was exciting! I feel like January sets the tone for the year, and couldn’t wait to see what cruelty-free, vegan, and natural goodies Petit Vour would include. This box contained a decent mix of products and I am really excited to use them all. In this video, I share my initial thoughts and impressions while unboxing the Petit Vour January 2016 Beauty Box.
For those who are not yet familiar with Petit Vour, they offer a monthly beauty box and were kind enough to send one to me. Everything inside the Petit Vour beauty box is cruelty-free, vegan, and natural. Most items are also high end. I love that this subscription box often introduces me to new products and new brands. In this video, I share my first impressions of the items in the Petit Vour January 2016 Beauty Box with you.
