Company: Simplers Botanical CompanyProduct: Rose Therapeutic Hydrosol, and Perfume/Essential Oils Verdict: 5/5If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a girly-girl at heart. Makeup, hair, frilly drinks, you name it, I love it if it has a touch of femininity. Now when it comes to girly scents- oh baby. Perfumes, candles, room sprays- I get all giddy just thinking about it. Fortunately for me, dreams do come true. Simplers Botanical Company is like a fairy-tale land for me. They source genuine organic ingredients from artisan distillers all over the world to offer 100% pure products for earthy-girlies (and boy-ies..) just like you and me!
They offer a range of sensual therapeutic hydrosols, to help help sooth emotional stress away with a variety of scents to fit your skin (and nose!) Rose, one of my favorite scents, is a perfect match for irritated, itchy red skin. Its natural healing properties helps calm and relax angry skin with its natural moisturizing properties. I apply the Rose Therapeutic Hydrosol whenever my skin is feeling extra dry, and after it soaks in the skin on my face feels instantly renewed and refreshed! This will definitely come in handy during the cold and winter months for those who have already dry skin! 
Simplers also offers beautifully scented perfume oils in four different flavors- Jasmine, Neroli, Rose, and Vanilla. You can apply these delicate perfumes directly to your skin, and bask in the soothing, relaxing, and calming properties each individual one has to give you. The Jasmine scent has definitely become my favorite go-to perfume. It has such a light, elegant floral scent that is enough to make me swoon! 
They also carry a huge variety of essential oils- which is something that completely tickles my fancy. Essential oils are so versatile and are great add-on for a luxurious at home spa night. Add a few drops of calming lavender into your bubbly-bath, light a few candles, lay back and relax, and let your troubles soak away while the relaxing aroma of lavender takes over your mind. 
Lavender isn’t your forte’? How about Chamomile? Peppermint? Orange? Simplers is sure to have something for everyone, check out their website here and get lost in the possibilities of scents you can experiences and the organic and natural therapeutic promises you can expose your skin and your body too! 
The Lowdown;

The hydrosols are perfect for all skin-types, and are a perfect alternative to thick lotions 
Cruelty free!

Company: Solay WellnessProducts: Gentle Face Scrub, Detoxifying Mud Mask, and Organic Face Lotion Verdict: 5/5!
Do you ever look longingly at those commercials made for those beautiful, expensive spas (what an understatement..) where a beautiful lady is getting a facial, with creams that look as smooth as butter and exfoliators that seem like they were made fresh just for her? Yeah, me too. However, lucky for us beautiful ladies who just can’t afford their own signature exfoliator, there is a luxurious solution waiting to be discovered. 
Solay Wellness. A beautiful company made for beautiful women just like you! Their affordable spa-experience products are vegan, natural and handcrafted in small batches to help give you the healthy, happy skin you deserve. Because of their wide range of products, you’re able to come up with the perfect formula of a relaxing, at-home spa day.
One of my favorite ways to relax in a tub full of bubbles starts off with the Gentle Face Scrub. Mixed with the most luxurious ingredients of small organic jojoba beads, calcium bentonite clay, and a moisture enriched organic base, gives this luxury a beautifully rich, earthy scent. I massage this gentle blend in a small circular motion to already cleansed, warm skin (to help open up your pores). After about 3 or so minutes of gentle scrubbing I wash it off with a few splashes of warm water. My skin instantly feels refreshed and revitalized, like I have a whole new set of skin on!
Next, I grab my Detoxifying Mud Mask- a product that is enough to make me swoon. It has a deep, natural scent that instantly puts me into relaxation mode. I gently rub this creamy mask all over my face and mask, not missing a single spot. The texture is so creamy and smooth, I  swear I could just keep applying, re-applying, applying, re-applying… you get the picture. I like to leave this on for about 10-15 minutes- if I could I would live with it on, but that would just be silly (and a little unsanitary). 
After rinsing thoroughly I’m quick to grab the Organic Face Lotion. You thought those lotions on the commercials looked creamy? This is utterly divine. It smells fresh and feels even fresher. I gently massage this buttery delight (theoretical vegan butter of course) all over my face. I specifically love this lotion because of its light feel- it doesn’t make your skin appear or feel like grease (and I don’t mean the good John Travolta variety)
All in all, Solay Wellness is a company of virtue. Their products are high quality, and their values of natural, vegan organic, and handmade assets are a huge bonus! I really recommend checking out their website, and taking a snoop through their other luxurious products!

Company: Morrocco Method Int’lProduct: Sapphire Volumizer Mist ConditonerVerdict: 4/5
If you’re a thin haired-gal (or guy!) you will know the hardships and struggles of finding products that give your hair the volume it lacks without weighing it down. I have unfortunately tried countless products that promised to give my hair ‘extreme volume’ or a ‘weightless lift’. Well, such as life, their promises were broken. My bathroom soon became home of products that just couldn’t serve my hair the purpose it needed.
However, when I tried Morrocco Method (a 100% vegan company!!) my precious locks were opened to a whole new world of volume. The Sapphire Volumizer Mist is a 100% natural, moisturizing formula perfect for the days where your hair is looking extra limp and needs to be quickly revived to life. All you have to do is simply spritz it on to wet or dry hair, and style it as usual- Easy peasy! It leaves your hair smelling clean and fresh, while adding that extra little kick of volume to your tresses! I specifically loved this product for lazy days at the beach, where my hair would get repeatedly flattened by both the suns rays and the waters waves (no rhyme intended…) it helped revitalize it by adding moisture and kept the frizzies down in just a few quick sprays! 
Morrocco Method is a 100% Vegan, Raw, Gluten Free hair care company designed to make you and your hair happy! (What more can you ask for?)  Check out Morrocco Method and all of their other wonderful products on their website here! I also suggest trying out their natural Sea Essence Shampoo for a little extra morning pick-me-up! 
The Lowdown; 
Pros
The Volumizer Mist helps add a kick of volume while adding moisture and keeping your hair frizzies at bay
It didn’t weigh my hair down or make it feel greasy
It’s a quick way to add volume without a sticky mess on your hands
The scent makes your hair smell like it was freshly washed
100% Vegan

Company: Dr. Dennis Gross Skin CareProduct: Alpha Beta Glow PadVerdict: 5/5
Okay, I’ll come right out and admit it- I have always been a non-believer of self-tanners. Of course this could be because of my first experience with it, when I used my sisters gradual self-tanning lotion and came out looking like a patchy orange blob. (Okay.. I was only ten, but still!) Ever since then I’ve always thought of self-tanners as my nemesis. (Hence my ghostly appearance during the winter time)  
However, after trying the Dr. Dennis Gross Glow Pads, anti-aging, exfoliating self tanning towelettes, my pasty skin has been history. Although I have to tell you, my first time using this product wasn’t the best, and it definitely wasn’t the products fault! Being the stubborn non-believer that I am, I applied the product to my legs…with my PJ pants rolled up halfway. I know- you’re probably thinking “whatta dummy” and it’s true, because the product worked like a dream! 
To apply the Glow Pads its as simple as taking one of the individually packaged towelettes and applying it in an even, circular motion to wherever you need it (be sure to wash your hands right after). If you want to achieve a darker color, simply use another towelette! However, after only one towelette on each leg there was definitely a noticeable difference in my ‘before and after’ skin color. 
I absoloutely love the concept of these products because you don’t have to worry about using an un-even amount of product for each area. It’s as simple as grabbing the same amount of towellets! I should also add after realzing how good the products worked, I went back and did the part of my legs I ‘missed’. To my suprise even through I slightly overlapped the areas it still gave my skin an even, natural looking glow! 
I highly, highly suggest Dr. Dennis Gross Skin Care Products! These self-tanners are definitely something I would feel confident enough to use to help bronze me up for my high-school graduation. Check out their website for their other awesome products and also check out my review on their Alpha Beta Skin Peel (which I also loved) here. 
The Lowdown;
Pros
It doesn’t leave your skin blotchy or orange
Each towelette applied gives your skin a slightly darker, natural looking tan
Easy to apply
The color itself is long-lasting 
Paraben Free
Cruelty free AND Vegan!! 
Cons
Again, my only con would be the individually packaged towelettes, although they’re convenient, my desire to be environmentally friendly is still tugging at my heart! However, as it stands right now, the product itself is like a fairy-tale!

Company: Liz EarleProduct: Instant Boost Skin TonicVerdict: 5/5 
Have you ever seen a trend and thought to yourself, “What is the point of that?” (Ed Hardy anyone?) Well that was my exact reaction when I first learned about toners. For those of you who don’t know, toner is meant to even out the color of your skin, AKA, tone it. In attempt to get rid of the blotchy redness on my face, I tried toner after toner, after toner, and after many empty bottles and wasted cotton pads later, I felt like throwing my hands in the air and giving up.  Each and every toner I tried just felt like I was putting water on my face, and my somach couldn’t help but feel queasy about the thought of wasting my money on something so… ridiculous! 
Fortunately, my knight in shining armour came at just the right moment. Liz Earles Instant Boost Skin Tonic- my hero! (Check out my review for Liz Earles Hot Cloth Cleanser!) The scent of the toner was my first indication that it was different than all of the others I tried. It smelt fresh, and clean… like it was actually meant to do something for my skin! 
I applied this beauty day and night to cleansed skin with a cotton pad. After a short period of time I noticed a huge difference in my skin! The toner not only helped my patchy red skin reach an even color (a task I had desired to be completed for years), but it also helped visibly remove excess makeup that a cleanser just can’t get. In turn, my skin appeared clearer, smoother, and a heck of a lot cleaner!  
I’m proud to say I use Liz Earle’s Instant Skin Boost Tonic Toner in conjunction with Liz Earles Hot Cloth Cleanser, and Skin Repair Light Moisturizer- which is a whole other review in itself ;) I cannot stress enough of how much I recommend checking out Liz Earle products! (Which you can find on their website, here) There is something formulated for every skin type and you are guranteed to not be dissapointed!

Pros
The pros of this product is simple- it actually works! 
The scent is refreshing and rejuvenating  
Alcohol free- which means it wont dry out your skin
Natural
100% cruelty free!!

Once again, I have nothing to complain about with this product- it’s nothing short of a skin-care dream in a bottle!

Calling all festive veggies- what are you eating during the holidays? Since I’ve been a vegetarian, planning for holiday feasts has been a lot more exciting then usual. So, what’s on my holiday menu? 
For my main course I’m definitely diving in (aka devouring) a beautifully bronzed Tofurky feast! This lovely veggie dream comes with a full sized Tofurky (Serves 6) filled with stuffing inside, as well as ‘Giblet’ gravy, a wish-stick made out of Tofurky Jerky (YUM!!) and to top it all off, a delectable moist vegan chocolate cake from Amy’s Kitchen! 
All you have to do is put your Tofurky in the oven (surrounded by your favorite veggies) cook up some potatoes, take out the cranberries, grab some orange juice and your feast is set! Even the non-vegetarians in my family love the taste of this delicious treat! 
You can find your own Tofurky feast at almost any local health food store- I found mine at my local Nutters! 
Happy feasting ;)

This means you can personalize your lip balm with your label and choose through a huge variety of luxurious flavors- cherry, vanilla, spearmint, coconut, lemonade.. you get the point. AND you don’t even have to go through the trouble of making them!
      Tell me if this isn’t the simplest marketing scheme ever. Lets sum this up, Promo Lip Balm takes YOUR label, puts it on the bottle of lip balm flavored with YOUR choice that THEY made for you. Now whats left to do? All you have to do is distribute your lip balms wherever you please- they would make the perfect gift with purchase, or they’d make wonderful Christmas stocking stuffers!
      If you’re looking for a fun way to help promote your business I definitely recommend checking out Promo Lip Balms website and cruising through their products- you can even customize the bottle of the lip balm and also customize the product to be 100% organic!
The Lowdown;
Pros
A great orignal and fun marketing technique that takes little to no-effort to promote your business
All of the lip balms are natural 
There is a huge variety of delicious flavors and unique containers to choose from
The lip balm itself is soft and creamy, and smells absolutely divine! 
They offer organic alternatives
Promo Lip Balm is cruelty free!
Cons
My only con would be that you can’t order the lip balms in smaller quantities. I think they would make great personalized gifts for birthdays and Christmas! However, I do understand that customizing 5 lip balms would not be of any benefit, and create more work for the company. So at last, I’ll just have to start a business ;)

In the business world there’s always competition to be bigger and better- and fun and creative promotional ideas are always a huge hit for gaining clientele. Whether you’re selling soap, candies, cupcakes or jewelry, we all know a unique scheme could be the winning ticket to help give our business the final boost.

           That’s where Promo Lip Balm jumps in- an original and innovative way to help you help promote your business! They offer custom lip balms with your own business label and choice of lip balm flavor. This means you can personalize your lip balm with your label and choose through a huge variety of luxurious flavors- cherry, vanilla, spearmint, coconut, lemonade.. you get the point. AND you don’t even have to go through the trouble of making them!

      Tell me if this isn’t the simplest marketing scheme ever. Lets sum this up, Promo Lip Balm takes YOUR label, puts it on the bottle of lip balm flavored with YOUR choice that THEY made for you. Now whats left to do? All you have to do is distribute your lip balms wherever you please- they would make the perfect gift with purchase, or they’d make wonderful Christmas stocking stuffers!

      If you’re looking for a fun way to help promote your business I definitely recommend checking out Promo Lip Balms website and cruising through their products- you can even customize the bottle of the lip balm and also customize the product to be 100% organic!

The Lowdown;

Pros

  • A great orignal and fun marketing technique that takes little to no-effort to promote your business
  • All of the lip balms are natural
  • There is a huge variety of delicious flavors and unique containers to choose from
  • The lip balm itself is soft and creamy, and smells absolutely divine!
  • They offer organic alternatives
  • Promo Lip Balm is cruelty free!

Cons

  • My only con would be that you can’t order the lip balms in smaller quantities. I think they would make great personalized gifts for birthdays and Christmas! However, I do understand that customizing 5 lip balms would not be of any benefit, and create more work for the company. So at last, I’ll just have to start a business ;)

    If you could only have *ONE* cruelty free beauty product what would it be?

    Would it be your shampoo? Cleanser? Foundation? I would love to know what your absolute die-hard favorite cruelty product is!

    Company: Kiss My FaceProducts: Peaches & Creme Ultra Moisturizer and Peaceful Patchouli Moisture Shave Verdict: 5/5 doesn’t describe how much I loved these products
Finding products that not only agree with my ridiculously sensitive skin, but also happen to smell delicious, feel luxurious, and are generally down right amazing almost seems like a fairy-tale dream. But after discovering Kiss My Face, my dreams have definitely come true!
Ever since I started shaving my legs (we won’t mention how old I was…) I’ve had terrible problems with angry razor burn bumps taking over my legs.  Believe me when I say I’ve tried all there is to try, expensive razors, cheap as dirt razors, creams, gels, exfoliators- you name it I’ve tried it. Life was grim in those days- that is until I tried Kiss My Face’s Peaceful Patchouli Moisture Shave. The moment I tried this product I swear the light shone down on me- we were meant to be. I used about a toonie sized amount of the product for each leg, which was definitely more then enough to give a rich and creamy lather. (The light scent of patchouli was enough to make me swoon!) After I shaved, rinsed, and dried I could already tell that my legs felt hydrated and smooth- not patchy and dry like the usual! And best of all, after less than a week’s use, my razor burn was history!! 
After drying off I grabbed the Kiss My Face Peaches & Creme Ultra Moisturizer and applied it everywhere. Be forewarned- once you apply this you cannot stop! It’s so hard for me to describe the beyond delicious smell of this, I feel like I could start hyperventilating. A sweet blend of peaches & creme combine together to give you the sugar rush you want (need) without the added guilt!  Not to mention it’s extremely moisturizing abilities- it doesn’t glop on and feel greasy and ‘thick’ like most ‘ultra-moisturizers’ do. And to tie it all in it has such a delicate, creamy texture I feel luxurious as soon as I smooth it on my skin.
All in all-I’m extremely impressed with Kiss My Face products and I can be sure there will be several more reviews to come! So as I’m sure you’ve guessed- I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend both the Ultra Shave Moisturizer and the Peaches & Cream Ultra Moisturizer. You can find both products, and many more amazing ones, on Kiss My Face’s website and most drug stores and health stores as well! (Might I add- each of their products come in several different scents- GO WILD!) 
The Lowdown;
Pros:
It helps destroy my nemesis- razor burn
 Extremely moisturizing without feeling greasy
Great for sensitive skin
The smells are heavenly 
All of the products are affordable
There are no parabens or artificial colors
NO animal ingredients
And they do absolutely NO animal testing! 
Cons
As I’m sure you’ve guessed, I have zero complaints about either of these products!
