Favorite Products: Bali Body

I have been using products from Bali Body for over two years now. I first discovered them on Instagram, (DUH!) and thought wow that’s super cute packaging, a simple concept that was tanning oil at the time. I thought why not its about to be summer why not get a little extra tan. I first fell in love with their original Bali Body tanning oil and their coco body oil. I used them all summer long. They not only helped me tan but also kept my skin hydrated and glowy. I loved the smell and the way it made my skin so soft even when I wasn’t using it as a tannin oil. 

One of the next things I got from them, when the weather started changing was their bronzing lotion. This is a tinted body lotion that gives you an instant tan glow, that washes off at the end of the day. Think of it as a body bronzer/ was off self tan! It was amazing for when I was about to do a shoot and needed an extra glow, or when I was going out and wanted to be tan. It comes in handy in between spray tans as well!

As I started laying out again I wanted to try something new from them. I tried their best selling watermelon tanning oil and I fell soooooo in love. This product is simply amazing. Its my favorite and I will never use another body oil. The smell is like skittles or fruit loops to me. It accelerates your tan so well without being overly sticky or oily. It hydrates your skin as well so I use it every day as well. It also comes in SPF which I  really like because I do have fairer skin. It keeps me smelling good and hydrated all year round!

My most recent favorite from them is their new Coconut Lip Balm! Let me tell you this is one of the biggest tubes of lip balm I’ve ever seen which means its never getting lost in my purse. It comes in a beautiful gold tube and smells like coconuts! Its super silky and not sticky or glossy. It has a plumping effect without burning or tasting spicy and that’s something I really love in a balm. I use it once during the day and it keeps my lips hydrated all day!

I really love all the products I have tried from Bali Body. The thing I love most about them is that all of their products are made from organic ingredients that are cruelty free and also vegan friendly! I love that they spread the cruelty free message over their social media. If you are in the market for some new all natural products be sure to check them out!


Vegan and Cruelty Free Beauty: Handmade Heroes

If you read my blogs you know I have really been obsessing over vegan and cruelty free beauty. I really believe  it’s important that beauty is cruelty free because there’s really no necessary reason that beauty products for humans should be tested on animals.  A lot of places that test on animals don’t only test on things like mice and rats they even go far as to use beagles.  I have been searching the Internet and social media to find the best vegan and cruelty free beauty brands and one of the most recent ones that I have fallen in love with is handmade heroes.  They have everything from lip balm, and  skin care products all the way to hair products and dry shampoo. I recently collaborated with them and they sent me their Harpars Bazaar awarded products that include two lip balms, a lip scrub and a powder dry shampoo.

After using all the products and seeing all their other products I decided this is a brand where you’d cbe able to get almost everything you need for your beauty and skincare to be completely cruelty free and vegan.

This is really nice because I have a few people tell me it’s hard for them to find all the products they need for everyday that are vegan and cruelty free. These products are not only both of these, but are also really nice quality as well!


First of all I have really dark here and the dry shampoo doesn’t leave a white cast on my hair like some other dry shampoo do.

They sent me two lip balms. There is a rose tinted lip balm is really nice it’s got a really cute pop of color just for every day wear.  Both lip balm smell really good to which is also nice.  The lip scrub is really great and it smells good. Also it’s not too harsh like other lip scrubs I’ve tried.  All of the product smell really nice and they work really well they also have super cute names.  I would recommend the dry shampoo for just about any color hair like I said my hair is black and it blended in really well.

Overall I really recommend this brand to people who are looking to switch  vegan and cruelty free products.

Cruelty Free Beauty: EcoCoco Australia

I have been doing a lot of research on beauty brands that test on animals. It’s really surprising the types of tests they allow and the brands that have even broken the rules when it comes to animal testing, not that any animal testing is okay anyway. That being said I have been making it my goal to find products that are great quality and are also cruelty free! 

When I found EcoCoco Australia I was on Instagram (shocker). They had reached out to me through their Influencer program and I was so excited to work with them! All of EcoCoco’s products are organic, vegan and cruelty free which is really great for beauty products. They have everything from self tanning, shampoo and other hair products, lotions and body scrubs. Everything you need to make your  shower cruelty free! 

I got my hands on their Coconut Guava Body Scub that also can be a face scrub and a bath soak. It smells really good and has so many ingredients that are good for you and good for animals. I also got the new CocoLime Body Butter which smells AMAZING. It’s so thick and creamy. It’s perfect for after a shower or after laying out! The packaging in these products is to die for as well! They have tons more amazing vegan and cruelty free products on their website which I will link below. Their Instagram also has cool sales and giveaways sometimes so be sure to give that a follow as well! If you’re interested in brands that are cruelty free I suggest starting with Pinterest! There are lists of brands that are and aren’t. I highly reccomend vegan and cruelty free products to people with allergies and sensitive skin as well! It’s not going to have all the harsh chemicals in it that a lot of regular brands do. Just make sure you know what you’re sensitive to!
