Continuing my series of posts highlighting my favorite cruelty-free hygiene products (my first post featured my vegan facial care regimen), I’d like to now recommend the products that keep my entire body fresh, fragrant, and moisturized.
Kiss My Face Lavender & Lily Silky Soft Shower and Bath Gel—$10.95 for 16 oz.
Reward yourself with some in-home aromatherapy by lathering up a loofah with this calming blend of lavender, chamomile, jasmine, and passionfruit in the form of a skin-softening shower gel. Check out Kiss My Face’s wide array of gels, each sporting a unique blend of scents to match your any mood, such as wild mint and citrus to exhilirate, woodland pine and ginseng to de-stress, or cardamom and mint to refresh.
Kiss My Face Olive & Aloe Moisturizer—$4.99 for 4 oz.
Constantly present in my backpack, this mini-tube of on-the-go skincare companionship guarantees prolonged relief from the woes of dry skin with every squeeze—not to mention that even though this lotion claims to smell like olive and aloe, I can vouch for its distinctly comforting sugar cookie-like aroma.
Nature’s Gate Hemp Moisturizing Lotion for Dry and Dehydrated Skin—$11.69 for 18 oz.
Not only a nutritional powerhouse, EFA-rich hemp seed oil also nourishes the skin, replenishing those dry, dehydrated patches (can you say scaly elbows?). Gentle enough for facial use, as well, this mildly scented lotion moisturizes my hands, feet, and legs every night before bedtime.
Kiss My Face Active Life Deodorant Stick in Lavender—$5.99 for 2.48 oz.
Notorious for odor-blocking failure, which leads to numerous embarrassing social encounters, all-natural vegan deodorants have long earned a terrible reputation. However, this lavender-scented (can you tell I like me some lavender bodycare products?), transparent deodorant stick from Kiss My Face has never failed me in providing effective protection against awkward stench-inducing moments, including during workouts—plus, I’ve never once experienced those annoying white marks on my clothing from using this product.
My next post in the cruelty-free body/skincare series will expound upon my preferred oral hygiene products, including fluoride-free toothpaste, a recyclable toothbrush, and a deliciously flavored lip balm.
Until next time, Ali.
