My intention for this article was to pen a brief essay reviewing some of my favorite manly vegan products. Although my mind ran to shaving creams and serious deodorants, I quickly realized that there is a serious lack of animal free, male oriented merchandise on the market today – a main reason I make the majority of such things myself. In reaction, I decided to review an androgynous product that has gotten myself and my bone-dry winter skin though many cold days. This vegan, cruelty-free, synthetic fragrance-free, and non-GMO body lotion is made by the Everyday Shea, and it really works well.
Purchased for just under $10 from my local health foods store, I got 32 oz. of passion fruit infused lotion. Other scent options were Lavender, Vanilla, Coconut, and Coconut with Lime, but
after an in-store test of all smells available, I felt the “Passion Fruit” was sure to be the most universally pleasing.
Now I will warn you, the scent is VERY strong. Honestly, I’ve been told I smell like a fruit salad for about an hour after application, but I feel it is worth it. This lotion is thick enough to withstand the dryness of my winter skin, yet still non-greasy or oily and leaves no residue behind. Everyday Shea offers moisture and a back-story of social sustainability, so one’s skin and heart are mutually satisfied. And if your skin is like mine this time of year, it may be worth you checking out as well.
