Show & Tell Series: All Natural & Ethical Brand & Product Review, V. II

April 20, 2016

 

 

Welcome back Half Hippies! This is our second Show and Tell post and we have some really cool products to share with you for this gorgeous month of April. These are products we swear by and use all the time! 

 

 

Zuzu Luxe Raven Liquid Eyeliner

 

First up is Zuzu Luxe Raven Liquid Eyeliner. This stuff is amazing! We’ve been trying really hard to make sure our makeup stash is free from toxic nasties and this is a great substitute for conventional liquid liners. This liner comes with a firm felt-tip applicator that makes it really easy to get precise points for either soft and natural looks or dramatic winged liner looks. The pigment is super black and it has a nice matte finish. Since this stuff is all natural, it’s perfect for even the most sensitive eyes! The only downside to this liner is that towards the end of the day, it can get a little smudgy. This small setback is minor to us when we consider the alternative of loading our faces with harmful ingredients. We still highly recommend this and treat this as our go-to liner for everyday wear.  

 

Zuzu Luxe is an all natural, 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free makeup collection. It was founded by Gabriel de Santino in 1992. He was heavily influenced by his grandmother, whom he would visit as a child near the coast of Mexico. She taught him the importance of healthy and natural alternatives. Gabriel is a huge advocate for all natural and organic beauty products and also carries organic skin care for the whole family with Gabriel Organics and Clean Kids Naturally.​

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. Bronner's Hemp Pure-Castile Peppermint Soap

Our second product is Dr. Bronner's Hemp Pure-Castile Peppermint Soap. It is our absolute favorite soap of all time! It comes in either bar or liquid form. You can literally use this soap in a million ways for a million things. If you google uses for Dr. Bronner’s soap, you will be overwhelmed with what comes up! We especially love the peppermint scent because it leaves your body feeling cool and tingly (a necessity in the summer)! You will feel extra fresh and super clean. The Dr. Bronner’s company is really well known and this family has been making soap for over 150 years. They were pioneers in the natural product movement. They are certified USDA organic, cruelty free, 100% biodegradable and fair trade. They also ensure fair and socially responsible treatment for their workers and donate profits to many charities.

 

Woodstock Herbal Products: C & F Seasonal Support Herbal Tincture

We swear by Woodstock C & F Seasonal Support Herbal Tincture. Now, what exactly is a tincture? It is a liquid extract made from herbs that is combined with alcohol, glycerine or acv. You can add it to your water or tea or take it straight from the bottle. C & F is our favorite tincture during the cold and flu season. It boosts your immunity and helps you recover from cold or flu faster. It is made of aerial root plants, elderflower, garlic bulb, echinacea, other immunity boosting herbs. It mainly tastes like peppermint oil so no worries about icky herbal or medicine-y flavors. It is made in upstate New York by committed expert healers and herbalists. These awesome people make sure to build quality relationships with local organic farmers that are dedicated to eco-farming methods. They use ancient wisdom from different cultures and science to create a quality product. This tincture is highly effective and handcrafted. It is certified organic with quality ingredients harvested from the wild. The Woodstock product line is vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free.
