I was watching Extreme Couponing on TV the other night, and I saw some lady stock up on like 80 kazillian bunzillion bars of name brand soap and icky, icky, cheap, synthetic-y, conventional lotions. I couldn’t believe she was committing to a lifetime of gunky, toxic “beauty” products in such massive quantities. It was gross. [...]
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 [...]
I know this isn’t news, but most conventional sunscreens do more harm than good. Sun protection is great and all—but only if you’re not piling toxic, carcinogenic chemicals on your skin in the process. I’ve been fortunate to get my hands on some some pretty amazing vegan sunscreens over the years, and I’ve recently discovererd [...]

Not all of Lather’s products are vegan so just make sure to read the ingredients beforehand (available on their website). All the products featured on VBR are vegan. And if you live in the LA area, feel [...]
It’s dry skin season, peeps and I know we’re all in the market for an awesome moisturizing hand/foot/face lotion… a vegan and cruelty-free one that works. I recently tried Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion and it fit the bill. I had actually never heard of a shielding lotion before so I did a little research. [...]
Portland, Oregon is on my list of places to visit a.s.a.p. Why? ‘Cause those Portlanders (Portlandinos? Portlandians?) sure know a lot about veganism… vegan food, vegan treats, vegan beauty products, etc. Alexandra Avery Body Botanicals (Portland-based) is just another reason why Portalnd is so awesome. Alexandra Avery Body Botanicals are all cruelty-free and [...]
