In my many years of testing the latest and greatest vegan beauty products, I’ve come across a kazillion beauty lines that have seriously kicked some major ass, but there are an elite few that have made me devoted, quasi-obsessed brand junkies.
Grateful Body is one of these said beauty lines that makes me wanna do cartwheels and shout from the rooftops. Yep, this ish (Christy, you’ve got me “ish”ing out) is THE ish times 12! And, this family-owned and operated business is located in Berkeley, CA which is essentially my new home (I’m just a mini hop, skip & a jump/bike ride away).
All of their products are high quality, cruelty-free, vegan, chemical-free, eco-conscious (down to their über cool packaging), and very effective!
After I dish my faves, be sure to enter the VBR/Grateful Body giveaway below!
Deep Cleanser, $24: I use this at night because my skin has been uncharacteristically dry for this time of year, and so creamy cleansers are what I’m all about right now. It has a delicate floral scent and it’s packed with a shit on of nutritious, antioxidant-rich ingredients (like Quillaja Extract, Oatstraw, Yucca Root, Shea Butter and Vitamin E) that literally infuse my skin with a power dose of moisture. It’s perf for oily and combo skin, btw… and it does an amazing job at removing stubborn makeup.
Moisturizer for Normal Skin, $30: I have a theory about facial moisturizers… the more you switch ’em up, the more your skin stays on tops of its game (similar to switching up shampoos). Overall, I love thick-ass, dense facial moisturizers at night (so my skin can slurp of extra amounts of moisture while I’m Zzzzz-ing. In the mornings, I like to use to use a lighter, but still super hydrating formula so that my makeup goes on easily (without slipping and sliding). This moisturizer has been my daytime go-to. It’s absorbs super quickly, smells divoon, and leaves my skin feeling refreshed.
Essential Eye Creme, $40: This wrinkle fighting ninja cream packs a punch with ingredients like Shea butter, Amaranth Seed Extract, and Bulgarian Rose essential oil… addicted.
