I always research a product before I bring it into my home to use on myself, on my animals or in my cooking.
I make sure nothing is tested on animals, contains animal products or contains gmo’s.

One of my favorite new products in my house is my Matcha green tea. When I decided to change to a vegan lifestyle, I began researching for good health foods to add to my diet.
Transitioning to my now daily vegan superfood latte was SO MUCH EASIER than I thought it would be. My morning cup now gives me a sustained less-jittery energy boost than my daily cup of coffee.
Plus, it has incredible health benefits! Read about Matcha Green Tea HERE.
This cleanser works so well because it’s a cream cleanser. I have dry skin so this cleanser isn’t harsh and doesn’t leave your skin feeling stripped and irritated.
It soothes the skin and gently cleanses.

This is really one of my favorite products in my bathroom. I tried many moisturizers over the years (I started using moisturizer when I was 12). I have been using it since 2012.
BWC is a favorite brand of mine- no animal testing. Before bed, I add a drop or two of almond oil to the moisturizer I put on my face for added moisture. My skin always looks soft and fresh in the morning.

Liquid Shampoo: Hair Chemist Coconut Oil Revitalizing Shampoo
I used this shampoo when I washing my dreadlocks and continued to use it after I took my dreadlocks out. It contains organic coconut extract but no fillers that coat the hair shaft to make it “seem silky”. (You don’t want that when you have dreadlocks).
This cleans my hair and smells amazing!
Dry Shampoo: Lush Cosmetics No Drought Dry Shampoo, 4.1 Ounces
First of all, Lush Cosmetics is a company I have a come to adore. They are strong activists for the welfare of animals. And there isn’t a product of theirs I don’t love.
I use this in between washings. With a base of corn flour, it is very absorbent and helps keep your hair from looking too shiny or greasy.

You have to buy Lush’s fresh face masks at their store. You can’t get it online because they are refrigerated and can spoil. That’s how fresh they are!

Some of my favorite products from them are their bathbombs, fresh refrigerated face masks, massage bars that melt when they touch your skin, and their sugar lip scrub.
