Let’s just say that when it comes to shaving, ya girl isn’t always on top of things. When it’s cold out I’ll let my leg hair grow to extreme lengths and I DON’T CARE. I think it’s important to remember that choosing to shave your legs should be decision based solely on your own wishes—never [...]
I’ve hearted MyChelle beauty products since the inception of VBR (2007—can you believe that shit?! :’) My baby’s growing up!). Not every product in MyChelle’s line is vegan, but the ones that are, are truly dee-licious!
Two MyChelle products I’m currently gaga over are the Fruit Fiesta Peel ($28.39) and [...]
The other day, I found out that talc was the main ingredient in one of my [used-to-be] favorite vegan and cruelty-free (and expensive) mineral finishing powders—I damn near had a heart attack! How did I not notice this before?!

I ♥ face scrubs. I try to exfoliate with them at least three times a week, especially when my face is feeling extra grimy and grody-to-the-max. Now, I know this may not be news to all of you, but St. Ives has an ah-mahzing Invigorating Apricot Facial Scrub that is vegan, cruelty-free and affordable (only $3.59 [...]
I’m a pretty gigantor CREO fan. Their products are all free of skanky shiz (i.e. sulfate-free, silicone-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free), and they don’t contain foam boosters like TEA, DEA, MEA or oxides.
Their Vanilla-Orange Hair Cleanser has got to be one of my all-time fave shampoos. Not only is it chemical free, but it smells like orangesicle [...]
Curling irons, flat irons and blow dryers are so bad for your hair! I wanted to show you guys how to make your hair curly using only your fingers and some bobby pins—it’s so easy and fun! As a bonus, I wanted to show you some of the cruelty-free beauty products I use on a [...]
