Cruelty-Free Product Reviews

February 23, 2017

We had a chance to try the Avanti Rx skincare line and we were super impressed by it. All of the products go on easily and absorb quickly. Our skin feels smooth and the tone is exceptionally even. A stubborn trouble spot of rosacea has even faded. Bonus: everything is vegan and there are sales on a few of the sets here: http://www.shopavantirx.com/shop/.

Located in Canada, Loa is a Leaping Bunny certified brand that specializes in creating skin care to help heal the underlying causes of a wide variety of skin conditions. Its products are vegan and created with a proprietary infusing process that naturally extracts compounds found in whole plants for a potent, high performance formula.

Currently, Loa's signature product is the Miracle Oil. It combines over 15 organic botanicals to deeply hydrate, nourish, and calm inflammatory skin conditions. Ingredients include evening primrose oil, safflower oil infused with herbs, chia seed oil, and rosemary antioxidant. The blend of herbs in conjunction with the essential oil blend of tea tree, frankincense, and helichrysum, create a very herbal and original scent. In addition, all ingredients are organic. Enriched with omega-3 and 5 essential fatty acids and cell-regenerating phytonutrients, these components are clinically verified to restore the skin's moisture barrier and significantly improve acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Interestingly, most people with inflammatory skin conditions have an omega-6 fatty acid deficiency, and this product helps restore the balance in the skin. In addition to helping with a wide variety of skin conditions, this Miracle Oil is suitable for all skin types. It is light weight, absorbs quickly, and thoroughly nourishes the skin. Another great aspect of this product is the container, which only dispenses small amounts of the oil so it is easy to avoid using too much. A little goes a long way. With a very reasonable price point, Miracle Oil is a great option for individuals struggling with skin issues to check out as well as individuals interested in a high-quality skin serum/oil.

Meow Meow Tweet is a personal care company that makes natural vegan skin care. The ingredients are minimal and easily recognizable. Additionally, all products are contained in adorable packaging. This brand stands out as fun, youthful, and charming in a market that is becoming oversaturated.

Its wide product selection includes deodorant, coconut butter soap, and a baby collection, as well as a variety of body products. One of the many stand out products is the Cocoa Skin Cream. Its consistency is thick but absorbs quickly into the skin. It leaves behind smooth, super hydrated skin, which is especially ideal during these cold, winter months. Not to be overlooked, the scent of natural cocoa is comforting and delicious. With only four ingredients (cocoa butter, shea butter, hemp seed oil, and sunflower oil), you can feel 100% comfortable and confident putting it on your skin.

Cult beauty favorite Fairy Girl recently launched its new liquid lipsticks line. Not only are these products cruelty-free and vegan, they contain hydrating oils including Hawaiian Kukui nut oil and jojoba oil and are free of parabens.

The liquid lipsticks smell delicious, like frosting, when you first apply them. They quickly dry, leaving a matt finish, and are long lasting. The shade range is very expansive and caters to a wide variety of skin-tones and looks. You can buy the 12 set of all liquid lipsticks together, or individually, as well as their gorgeous glimmer shades. These liquid lipsticks are perfect for lip product addicts, since the color variety is unique and original. Additionally, they are great for individuals looking to experiment with lip color, as they come perfectly packaged together and provide amply opportunity to sport a different shade for each day of the week.

Blossom Jar specializes in facial oils made for a wide variety of skin types. In addition to dry skin (shown above), the company has special formulations for oily, hormonal, sensitive, and normal skin types. Each bottle contains handcrafted, organic skincare using ancestral beauty remedies from the founder's grandmother, botanicals, and unique sweet almond oil infusions. The ingredients for all of the formulations are a mixture of healing herbs, flower blossoms, and vegetable and nut oils.

The dry skin moisturizing facial oil is a special blend of organic almond, rosehip, and kukui nut oil infused with lavender, calendula, geranium, and marjoram. Not only does the formula smell lovely and luxurious, it moisturizes dry skin and helps restore youthfulness. Fine lines are plumped up and skin tone is made even. The oil is also light and absorbs easily into the skin. A little goes a long way.

If you are an individual who does not have a "one size fits all" skin type that is looking for a little more love and attention, find your perfect Blossom Jar blend here.
