Cruelty-Free Product Reviews

Skinny & Co. is a Leaping Bunny certified company that prides itself in its utilization of innovative, wild harvested, single origin coconut oil. Its patented Nutralock System crafts the coconut oil under 100 degrees F, which leaves all of the raw nutrients intact. This process results in coconut oil with higher levels of medium chain fatty acids and allows the body to absorb the oil much easier, enhancing its effectiveness.

Skinny & Co.'s prime ingredient in all of its products is its high quality coconut oil. The line may be considered minimal, but every product is thoughtfully crafted and effective. The core collection consists of coconut oil, oil pulling mouth wash, whipped body butter, facial oil, lip balm, shampoo and soap bars, and sugar scrub. The body butter contains 100% raw coconut oil, organic almond oil, and a blend of essential oils. The butter melts and absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving behind super soft, pampered skin with a light coconut/minty scent. Using this product feels quite luxurious. The soap is also superior to other similar products. The coconut oil base is very moisturizing and also lathers into a rich foam. There are a variety of soap scents including lemongrass, peppermint, cinnamon, and green tea. The coffee fragrance contains actual coffee bean granules, which create a light exfoliant.

Coconut oil lovers, consumers that prefer minimal ingredients, and individuals looking for personal care products that are super moisturizing and do not leave the skin dry, make sure to check Skinny & Co. out.

Black Tie Market is a Leaping Bunny certified company specializing in bath and body products that are both beautifully formulated and deliciously scented. Their products range from lip scrubs and polishing scrubs to soap bars and facial mist. In particular, the range of fragrances are unique and fun. Not only do they have their everyday scents including sweet roll + cinnamon, oak + bourbon, vanilla + arabica, and anise + pepper, they currently have a delicious fall collection which includes pumpkin spice latte, buttered praline, cinnamon crab apple, frosted pumpkin, and roasted fall figs.

One of their products that deserves special attention is the Sprinkles + Buttercream Lathering Sugar Scrub. The ingredients include shea butter, apricot kernel oil, and camellia seed oil, and smells absolutely delicious. Adding to the charm is the fact that there are little colored grains which are reminiscent of sprinkles within the scrub. This product is wonderful for everyone, especially for individuals that are opposed to conventional sugar scrubs that leave the tub slippery after use. This formula is a light exfoliant that can be used daily, dissolves easily on the skin, and leaves behind a subtle, sweet scent. Additionally, it does not leave any residue in the shower. 

Check out the various mouth watering scents available in the Lathering Sugar Scrub. They also have gift sets that contain a variety of both their house scents and fall scents, which is perfect for you to give a loved one or for yourself in order to try an array of their amazing scents.
