Vegan Beauty Must Haves With 100% Pure Cosmetics

IMG_8904

Hey loves! It’s no secret that I follow an extremely non-toxic & holistic lifestyle from hair to toe. When it comes to skincare & makeup, I only use non-toxic and/or plant-based products.

One of my favorite plant-based beauty brands is 100% Pure Cosmetics and Skincare. Their products are vegan, certified organic and use only good for you ingredients. I ordered their Coconut Oil Body Scrub during a holiday sale a few years ago and was blown away! I recently decided I’d give their facial skincare & makeup products a try to see how they hold up.

1st up is 100% Pure’s Coffee Bean Eye Cream. vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hairI don’t suffer from dark circles but I do have extremely puffy eyes with smile lines. I’ve been dealing with increased puffiness since giving birth to my second son back in September. I bought an eye cream a few months back but saw no improvement. vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hairThe 1st ingredient in this Coffee Bean Eye Cream is aloe, which is known to increase skin’s elasticity naturally. 2nd ingredient is moisturizing rose-water then rose hip oil. The magic ingredient in this vegan eye cream is caffeine rich green tea and coffee de-puffs and reduces swelling while increasing circulation to alleviate and brighten dark circles. After reading the reviews I knew I had to try it. All I can say is O..M..G! While it didn’t eliminate my puffiness off the bat, I did see a reduction almost instantly! I’m going to continue using over the next 30 days and I will give you another update then.

Next up is 100% Pure’s Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick in Sandstone.vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hair I love matte lipsticks but they can be so over drying within minutes of applying. I usually end up adding a hint of Vaseline or Almond oil to my lips to prevent that dreaded dry, cracked look. This lipstick eliminated all that for me!vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hair vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hairRemember, skincare & food ingredients are listed by order of concentration (highest to lowest). Check this out, the 1st ingredient is raw cocoa butter! 2nd is raw shea butter, 3rd is cherry, then plum..I can do this all day but I’ll let you see for yourself..lol. My lips were very moisturized and the color matched my skin tone perfectly! What I loved the most is that I didn’t have to reapply my lipstick since there was no dryness (double win!). There’s a total of 10 shades in this collection including Tempest, Blood Orange, Cactus Bloom and more!

Last is 100% Pure’s Maracuja Mascara in Dark Chocolate.  This is the PERFECT mascara for those with sensitive eyes like myself.vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hair I love that this vegan mascara is colored from black tea leaves! There are no harmful dyes in this mascara at all. 🙂 Some of the conditioning ingredients include aloe, cocoa seed butter and maracuja seed oil. I can’t stand when mascaras have that chemical-like scent and make my lashes dry and clumpy. This mascara had a faint chocolate scent that smells divine! The brush helped to lengthen, separate and create just the right amount of curl & volume I wanted while looking fairly natural. vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hair vegan makeup, clean beauty, non toxic makeup, plant based makeup, vegan cosmetics, 100% Pure Cosmetics, vegan skincare, skincare, beauty, vegan skin, beauty blogger, refinery 29, buzzfeed beauty, vegan makeup african american skin, black skincare, vegan mascara, vegan lipstick, cruelty free makeup, vegan matte lipstick, vegan semi matte lipstick, no dirty beauty, natural hair, curly hair, coily hairIt’s also water and smudge resistant! Random fact: I always forget I’m not wearing my glasses when I wear eye makeup. I end up rubbing my eyes and smearing the eye makeup!..lol. Am I the only one that does that? Safe to say this mascara held up! This was my 1st time using any mascara from 100% Pure and I’m definitely a fan!

Naked Sugars Body Scrub Review

img_5342

Hey guys! I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving holiday! How did you guys ring in turkey day? Are your bellies still as full as mine?..lol. We celebrated with lots of family and friends locally. It was also my youngest son’s 1st Thanksgiving which was loads of fun in itself. These last few weeks have been pretty hectic trying to balance both kids, blogging, meetings but more importantly self-care. I was recently gifted an all natural & organic body scrub from Naked Sugars. I’ve been incorporating this scrub into my self-care & beauty regimen. Here are my 1st impressions.

About the Brand

Naked Sugars is an all natural and organic skin care line that uses and combines holistic herbs, essential oils, sugar and salts to curate handmade bath soaks & body scrubs. nakes sugars, organic body scrub, vegan, vegan scrub, vegan bath product, vegan beauty, plant based, organic, natural, black owned, shop small, holistic beauty, holistic, eczema, psoriasis The company was founded by beauty & fashion blogger Nakia Chiron. Nakia suffered from eczema and created these scrubs in an effort to find relief from this painful skin condition.

Morning Riser Body Scrub

Morning Riser scrub is the brand’s best seller and I see why! The lemon and sweet orange scent is extremely energizing & invigorating! It’s just what I need for my mornings since I’m usually in desperate need for a pick me up. img_5339I’m often up at least twice overnight to feed my 8 week old and I try to workout before the kids wake up. Morning Riser has become just as much a staple in my morning routine as brushing my teeth! I love that I don’t have to question what’s in Naked Sugars products, especially since I’m exclusively nursing my son.img_5332 This scrub is formulated with the following pregnancy and breastfeeding safe ingredients:

  • Magnesium Sulfate| Cell Rejuvenation & Alkalizes the body to promote better sleep.
  • Organic Coconut Oil| Hydrating & natural antibacterial.
  • Organic Sugar Cane|Exfoliates & hydrates.
  • Organic Sweet Almond Oil|Relieves dry itchy skin, moisturizes , natural remedy for Psoriasis & Eczema.
  • Sweet Orange Essential Oil|Increases mental alertness, improves memory & reduces stress.
  • Lemon|Brightens and balances the skin & stimulate positive energy.

Final Thoughts

All Naked Sugars scrubs are blended with organic coconut, sweet almond and vitamin E oils to give you the perfect balance of healing and moisturizing properties. I’ve been suffering from extremely dry skin & hair postpartum. I’m very pleased & highly recommend Morning Riser scrub for anyone dealing with dry skin or inflammatory skin conditions. It left my skin so hydrated and supple that I didn’t even need to apply moisturizer after showering! How’s that for time management?..lol. One tip I would say is to maybe store your scrub in a mason jar after opening for easier access while showering.nakes sugars, organic body scrub, vegan, vegan scrub, vegan bath product, vegan beauty, plant based, organic, natural, black owned, shop small, holistic beauty, holistic, eczema, psoriasis

One of the best things about Naked Sugars is that if you’re not ready to commit to an 8oz scrub you can purchase their sampler scrub pack for just $5!! These sample sized pouches are perfect if you’re going on vacation and want your favorite scent with you to get through TSA.

You don’t want to know how many times I’ve lost beauty products to TSA (insert ultimate side eye emoji here). The sampler scrub pack also makes for a great and affordable stocking stuffer for loved ones this holiday season. The packaging is extremely convenient as well. It’s compact so it doesn’t take up too much space at all. All Naked Sugars scrubs have a shelf life of 6 months unopened and 4 opened. They are also safe enough for daily use.

Product Review: TréLuxe for Kinky Curly Coily Hair

image

Happy 4th of July weekend guys! Wash and go season is upon us! Since wash and go’s are my go to style, I figured I’d share with you one of my favorite lines to use all year round. TrĂ©Luxe is an all natural and organic hair care line that uses refreshing & certified organic ingredients that you can actually pronounce and feel comfortable using on your entire family. Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikkiI’ve been using the TrĂ©Luxe line since December of 2015. I first used the line to achieve a wash and go for the holidays. Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikki

My hair was going through a bit of a dry rut at the time and needed a major moisture boost without compromising definition, volume & the health of my hair. The 1st thing I love about the TréLuxe line is that their products are formulated with cruelty free, gluten free, certified organic ingredients. As an ingredient conscious mom this is an important factor when determining what products I use on my hair and skin. Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikki

As you can see, my curls were poppin! Seriously guys, I have never achieved so much definition with any wash and go!

TrĂ©Luxe‘s Untie the Knot leave-in conditioner uses natural plant based ingredients such as broccoli seed oil, aloe vera juice, coconut oil and marshmallow root to replenish moisture while making detangling a cinch! Next, I styled with Hi! Definition Curl Enhancer Styling Gel for a medium-high hold. This styling gel is formulated with avocado oil, honey extract and sage to improve elasticity, hydrate hair and give curls a polished look. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Fast forward 6 months later: My hair has grown a ton between pregnancy, self trims and healthy hair maintenance! I recently decided to give TréLuxe a try again but with a twist. This time I used Untie the Knot leave-in conditioner as my styling base & ReFlex Curl Styling Serum to seal the deal on my wash and go. Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikki

ReFlex Curl Serum is a lightweight liquid styler formulated with grapeseed oil, aloe leaf juice and coconut oil. This lightweight styler has major slip yet it’s strong enough to add definition and elasticity for voluminous bouncy curls. I also loved the shine and softness this styler gave my hair. My hair literally felt like air! Natural hair, TrèLuxe, vegan, vegan hair, vegan skin, beauty, beauty blogger, blogger, fashion, style watch, product review, review, kinky hair, coily hair, curly hair, naturallycurly, curly nikki

I have definitely fallen in love with TréLuxe line of products. My ultimate faves are the Hi! Definition Curl Enhancer Styling Gel & ReFlex Curl Serum. Have you tried TréLuxe yet? If so, what are your favorite products?

You can find the entire TréLuxe line of products at select Whole Foods and on their website www.discovertreluxe.com

Heritage 1933 Product Review

vegan, veganism, vegan hair, vegan skincare, beauty, style, natural, organic, natural hair, coily hair, 4c hair, naturally curly, curly nikki, heritage 1933, hair, blogger, diy

When it comes to both hair & beauty products I am extremely ingredient conscious. Pregnancy has made me even more aware of what’s out there. Most beauty products I use are kitchen based (ACV, raw honey, etc). Store bought products that I do use are usually vegan, organic, fair-trade, natural, cruelty free, just like my hair products & diet!..lol. Heritage 1933 is a vegan and cruelty free skin and hair care line that donates a portion of it’s proceeds to help women and children in need. Amazing right?! I’ve been using the line for a little over 1 month. I recently tried their “Ms. Know It All Whipped Hair and Body Moisturizing Butter” & “O.M.G Seal and Moisturizing Oil”.

Dry skin during pregnancy has been a major issue for me. I was trying different oils and cleansing methods but it felt like nothing was actually penetrating my skin. That when Heritage 1933’s “Ms. Know It All Whipped Hair and Body Moisturizing Butter” came in. vegan, veganism, vegan hair, vegan skincare, beauty, style, natural, organic, natural hair, coily hair, 4c hair, naturally curly, curly nikki, heritage 1933, hair, blogger, diy

This whipped body butter is formulated with some of my favorite healthy and natural moisturizers like:

  • Unrefined Shea butter: natural sunscreen, anti-inflammatory, moisturizer for dry skin, eczema, treatment for dry scalp, chapped lips and softens dry cracked skin.
  • Mango butter – promotes reduces sagging and bagging by firming skin. Relieves dry patches, eczema and dermatitis flare-ups.
  • Coconut oil: Rich in vitamin E and protein. Promotes collagen production which contributes to cellular repair and anti-aging.
  • Sweet almond oil: Rich in vitamin E, antioxidants, hypoallergenic, natural sunscreen, reduces dark circles, cures chapped lips, soothes and cures rashes, fast absorbing and lightweight.

Next up is “Heritage 1933’s O.M.G Seal and Moisturizing Oil.”vegan, veganism, vegan hair, vegan skincare, beauty, style, natural, organic, natural hair, coily hair, 4c hair, naturally curly, curly nikki, heritage 1933, hair, blogger, diy

Just like “Ms. Know It All Whipped Hair and Body Moisturizing Butter”, “O.M.G Seal and Moisturizing Oil” is a multi-functional oil that can be used on both the hair and skin. It is formulated with healthy & natural moisturizers like:

  • Jojoba: dissolves excess sebum which causes acne, easily absorbed, natural anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antibacterial agent. Natural remedy to sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, chapped skin, and diaper rash.
  • Tea Tree Oil: natural anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antimicrobial, antifungal & antibacterial to promote healthy and clean base for skin and scalp.
  • Peppermint Oil: Promotes hair growth by stimulating hair follicles and promoting blood circulation. Soothes itchy scalp. Contains Omega-3 fatty acids, iron, magnesium, calcium, Vitamins A and C.

My Thoughts

The texture of Heritage 1933’s “Ms. Know It All Whipped Hair and Body Moisturizing Butter” is extremely unique. It has an airy whipped feel yet when you rub the product between your fingers breaks it down into oil form. This allows for instant deep hydration with a healthy glow. In fact, my skin was still soft and supple by 10pm after applying it to my body at 6am. I was able to use this whipped body butter as a lightweight moisturizer on my hair as well. Keep in mind, if you have fine natural hair a little really does go a long way. I would only need to apply a small amount once a week for enhanced shine.vegan, veganism, vegan hair, vegan skincare, beauty, style, natural, organic, natural hair, coily hair, 4c hair, naturally curly, curly nikki, heritage 1933, hair, blogger, diy

Heritage 1933’s O.M.G Seal and Moisturizing Oil was amazingly lightweight yet effective at deeply penetrating my skin and hair. I’ve been using it on my stomach in conjunction with fresh raw aloe to retain elasticity and minimize the appearance of stretch marks during and post pregnancy. I’ve also been using this oil as a sealant for wash and go styles as well as a scalp moisturizer. It has a faint peppermint scent that is not overbearing at all. You can still wear your favorite perfumes without the scents overlapping. This oil can also be used as a lightweight oil to unravel twists and braids for a variety of natural hair styles.

Healthy Skin Tip: Use your favorite exfoliant prior to applying either product to enhance and retain hydrated skin. Both products can be used on either wet or dry hair. vegan, veganism, vegan hair, vegan skincare, beauty, style, natural, organic, natural hair, coily hair, 4c hair, naturally curly, curly nikki, heritage 1933, hair, blogger, diy
Heritage 1933’s “Ms. Know It All Whipped Hair and Body Moisturizing Butter”, O.M.G Seal and Moisturizing Oil is now in heavy rotation as part of my healthy skin care regimen during pregnancy. I look forward to using their line of products postpartum as well.

Heritage 1933 has a wide array of plant-based products including scrubs, bath salts, oils as well as hair extensions! Check them out at www.heritage1933.com

I used their “Curl La La” Defining Custard a couple of years ago and had great results. I had some additional Aunt Jackie’s products in my “to try” stash for a while.

Don’t Shrink Flaxseed Elongating Curl Gel: This was my absolute favorite product of the 3 that I tried! Don’t Shrink Flaxseed gel performed exactly as it’s named. I had defined and weightless curls with minimal shrinkage! The special blend of extra virgin olive oil, shea butter and flaxseed The directions state to apply less gel for elongated curls and more gel for tighter curls. I applied less for more elongated curls. Also, be sure to apply this gel to soaking wet hair. Although the directions say it can be applied to clean dry hair it really does work best on wet hair.

Overall, I was extremely surprised with how well these products worked on my hair! I was able to achieve 5 day hair without refreshing!

I would without a doubt recommend Aunt Jackie’s Curls and Coils collection to anyone with tight curls, curls or kinks as part of a healthy hair care regimen.
