Mullein + Sparrow is a luxury, vegan beauty line crafted in Brooklyn. Plants and botanicals are used to created thoughtfully-crafted skin care that is gentle, beneficial, and made with ingredients you can easily recognize. The line is made to work together to create unity within your skin, but it is also mix and match depending on your skin type. Offerings include several varieties of facial serums, oils, toners, facial masks, facial steams, and face wash.

  1. The Immortelle and Myrrh Facial Serum is Mullein + Sparrow's most popular facial serum, and for good reason. It is wonderful for all skin types and is balancing, revitalizing, and increases blood circulation. It is also lightweight and easily absorbed into the skin. For individuals with oily skin, you may be able to use this serum alone without moisturizer. However, for individuals with drier skin, applying a light moisturizer after the serum may be your best bet. This serum contains incredibly effective ingredients including immortelle (a wildflower known for its healing ability), squalane oil, rosehip seed oil, avocado oil, carrot seed essential oil, and frankincense oil.
  2. The Lemon Rose Face Wash is very gentle and does not dry out the skin. Ingredients include coconut oil, sunflower oil, castor oil, and rosemary extract.
  3. The Balancing Face Mist Toner is suitable for all skin types and prepares skin for absorption of moisturizer. You apply after cleansing and before moisturizing, but I've also found it quite refreshing to spritz it on skin after moisturization and throughout the day. This mist contains ingredients including essential oils of jasmine, coriander, and rose geranium.

Cannbliss Organic is a Leaping Bunny certified company that offers a variety of skincare products made with naturally rich hemp oil. The hemp oil used is full spectrum and grown organically in Colorado. Their products are not diluted with water or harmful chemicals, and instead are infused with ancient Korean herbs, such as Mulberry Bark and Panax Ginseng.

Their revitalizing face serum is certified vegan and nutrient dense. Ingredients include a propietary herbal extract (which includes six herbs/roots), sweet orange oil, full spectrum hemp oil, and aloe barbadensis leaf juice. The texture is similar to aloe in that it is a light, easily absorbed gel. The light, citrus scent is lovely. After use, skin feels hydrated, bright, and nourished. I follow it up with a gentle daily face moisturizer. Not only are Cannabliss Organic's products extremely high quality with wonderful ingredients, their packaging is absolutely beautiful.

Toothpaste is an essential personal care product for all individuals. Finding a cruelty-free one has become easier and easier. However, some people prefer to use fluoride-free formulas, as well. Sprinjene is a Leaping Bunny certified company that meets the mouth care needs of a variety of individuals, from fluoride to fluoride-free adults, as well as a selection with both options for children, too! There are varieties specifically for cavity protection, sensitivity relief, white boost, and health boost.

One of the amazing ingredients found in the fluoride-free variety, as well as most of its products, is Black Seed Oil. Black Seed Oil has been documented in numerous scientific papers for its anti-inflammation and anti-bacterial benefits. It also helps to lubricate oral surfaces, bringing relief to dry mouth sufferers.

After using Sprinjene toothpaste, both the fluoride and fluoride-free variety, teeth and mouth feel refreshingly clean. Because of the Black Seed Oil, the flavor of Sprinjene toothpaste is a little different than traditional mint toothpaste. However, it is very fresh, botanical, and minty.
