Lip Balms!

 

Crazy Rumors…. Is one of the first companies we started working with in 2011! We are so happy to be partnered with this amazing brand…. they are fun and offer a fantastic product… (As it says in their tagline… naturally fun products!)

Fun for my girls too as they are always wanting to try the latest “Flavor’ … the biggest challenge is teaching a 2.5 year old not to roll it (the lip balm) all the way up!  Oh… the lessons!!!!

So yes…Crazy Rumors is our featured company this week! Learn about them and what they do for the animals as well! You’ll find them at Crueltyfreeconsumer.com. They also have received tons of national media & press coverage!

Here we go! Thanks to Edie for her story contribution below to our blog!!!
“Crazy Rumors was a concept my husband Brian and I came up with while hanging out in a local coffee/tea house what seemed like ages ago (2003). We loved the look and feel it evoked, and thought how much fun it would be to take these elements and incorporate them into an awesome product! That was the birth of our first babies (before the kitties) Perk and Brew – our coffee and tea flavored lip balms!

Did you know before making our first batch of balms, we experimented with soap making. It was a bit messy, but the Tangerine Oatmeal soap was just awesome!
Maybe we’ll try it again one day! :)

The love of our packaging, branding and design, and of course formulation and flavoring is why our customers keep coming back for more! Our products are unique by incorporating fun and fresh into the natural realm. Today, we have grown from 12 flavors to over 40! Some of our awesomely unique flavors include: Sweet Thai Tea, Red Velvet Cake and even a vegan Honey (we call Bee My Honey) We even have a beautiful line of Hawaiian inspired line of lip colors! Our high quality, super moisturizing ingredients make our products fabulous. We only use the best of the best plant based all natural, non – GMO and vegan ingredients. We’ve had the same customers carry our products since day one, and we’re super proud of it!

Thanks for checking us out! (Smooches! Edie & Brian)”

Edie, Brian thank you again for your partnership! We are so thrilled to be able to offer the Crazy Rumors brand to our Cruelty Free Consumers!

Oh by the way… since we know all of you are following us… you can probably assume what comes next… YES!  A  Crazy Rumors giveaway!  Watch next week for details!

A Girl’s Gotta Spa! “Our Story”.

23 Jun
The newest brand to be offered at Cruelty Free Consumer.com

The newest brand to be offered at Cruelty Free Consumer.com

 

Hello today!  Welcome to our Monday Guest Blog/Giveaway once again!  This is our 3rd official “Installment”…(We need a better word… writers block)… please throw us a suggestion!

This week our focus is on a newly discovered company and I’m in love!  The products offered by “A Girl’s Gotta Spa!”are absolutely amazing just as Shannon had told us!  We love her story and being a mom myself…. I can certainly relate!

Below is Shannon’s story from A Girl’s Gotta Spa!…

The concept of A Girl’s Gotta Spa! began 9 years ago this October.
I was 31 years old at the time and a mother of 3 sons (with another to be the apple of my eye in the not so distant future.) I had recently left working in the mental health field, which was both rewarding and taxing, and moved from the suburbs of Philadelphia to the rural surroundings of the Pocono Mountains. The idea of taking time for myself was not a foreign concept; however it is typically quite a dichotomy. On the one hand you have people telling you that you need some me time, “Take some time for yourself,” they’d say, “You deserve it.” Then, on the other hand, you have people asking you and accusing you of being selfish for doing so.

I believe you deserve to be pampered.

A Girl’s Gotta Spa! ® was built on the belief that your personal well-being should be a priority. A Girl’s Gotta Spa! is a call to action, whether you are young or old, regardless of ethnicity or creed, working in the corporate world or busy raising the next generation of responsible leaders, you deserve to treat yourself daily.
I truly believe this and whether you are worn and withered from your career, your children, your spouse, your friendships, your finances and any other circumstance in your life (the good and the bad), I want you to believe it too.

Pamper: To indulge with every intention, comfort and kindness.

A Girl’s Gotta Spa! bath and body line is one that is natural and cruelty free. Nowhere in our mission is there room for animal cruelty of any kind. We’re proud to now be among a prestigious list of beauty companies who also hold this same value with our Leaping Bunny certification.

  • A Girl’s Gotta Spa! is free of sulfates, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, synthetic colors and fragrances. Our Energizing Citrus Body Wash and Energizing Citrus Body Lotion are both vegan. Crafted in small batches, the purity and quality of the ingredients will be an elucidation to your dry skin care woes and satiate your senses.
  • Energizing Citrus is an invigorating mix of pink grapefruit, lemon, lime and orange. The fragrance is not overwhelming, but more subtle in the sense that you can clearly distinguish each essential oil as you apply the products. The Body Wash will leave your skin hydrated and silky smooth, while the Body Lotion will leave skin looking and feeling soft and healthy.

So I encourage you, take time for yourself today. Know that you are worth it. Know that you deserve to be pampered.

 

Thank you Shannon, we are so thrilled to be associated with you and your brand!

Next week, you will have the chance to win these 2 products to pamper yourself!  Be watching via Facebook, Twitter and this blog for details as to how to enter!

Thank you to Angela Acquaye for her contribution with the Blog and the Giveaway!

British brand Bulldog Skincare For Men makes award winning skincare products that are purpose-built for men, using natural ingredients that really work. Bulldog launched in the US in 2010 and has expanded its ethical line to 12 products in just three years.

The brand was born in 2006, out of the frustration that there were no natural options available for switched-on men who wanted to reduce the number of man-made chemicals in their bathrooms. Bulldog is now available in 13 countries and over 10,000 stores worldwide.

Bulldog products are body-friendly and don’t contain controversial man-made chemicals such as parabens, sodium laureth sulfate, artificial colors, or synthetic fragrances. Instead, all Bulldog products are loaded with essential oils and other amazing natural ingredients to deliver superb skincare results.

Bulldog products are never tested on animals and never include ingredients derived from animal sources. The brand is approved as ‘Cruelty Free’ and was rated as the top brand in the UK across both male and female skincare categories in the Ethical Company Organization’s 2012 Good Shopping Guide. Bulldog can be found nationwide in or at CRUELTY FREE CONSUMER.com!

This month Bulldog is urging American men to enhance their natural skincare regimes with the launch of three new specialist products available online at meetthebulldog.com.  As always, these products are purpose built for men using world-class natural ingredients, all delivered with a witty dose of personality on the back of each pack.

The three new Bulldog products are:

Bulldog Original Body Lotion – Packed with 8 essential oils, cocoa butter, aloe vera and avocado oil to help nourish and rehydrate the skin.

Bulldog Sensitive Face Wash – Specifically formulated for sensitive skin with 2 essentials and green tea to gently cleanse your face of dirt and debris.

Bulldog Original Eye Roll-On – Packed with avocado oil and Brazilian ginseng extract to reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines.

Best! Shower! Ever!

21 Oct
Win This!

Win This!

I’ve been trying to blog more… but it’s hard just to write without something important to say. Then it hit me when I was taking a shower…. “I love this face scrub I am using! It feels amazing! This really is waking me up and helping me to feel ready for the day ahead! This is something I can blog about!”

This all happened a few weeks back and was the reason I reached out to our friends at Living Clay and asked them to help out as we were going to be launching a guest blog series.

Here’s an Introduction to Living Clay….

“Have you had your clay today? Hi, I am Perry A~, author of Living Clay: Nature’s Own Miracle Cure and founder of The Living Clay Company. We are proud to provide certified cruelty-free products that not only are unique, but are also as safe for you as they are for our environment.

Our all-natural, paraben-free wellness products have the added enrichment of our premier Living Clay® Detox Clay Powder. This unique combination makes magical creams and lotions that treat your skin to around-the-clock moisture, leaving you with a velvety softness that lasts all day. The Rejuvenation Face Cream and Wrinkle Release Cream are blends of Living Clay® and all-natural plant extracts that fluff out and smooth lines while softening your skin and uncovering its fresh and natural beauty. The Body Creams and Lotions leave you with skin you love to touch.

The Face and Body Scrub is popular for its deep cleansing, gentle exfoliation and the revitalizing, refreshing zest it adds to your experience. Here is what one customer says about it: “Your Face and Body Scrub is the best I’ve ever found! I can’t see ever using anything else…ever!!! Thanks!” – Becky D.

The handmade cold process soaps are made using only the finest organic olive, coconut and palm oils, herbs, pure essential oils, sea salt, and Calcium Bentonite Clay. WARNING!!! These soaps are ADDICTIVE. You will never want a bar of traditionally manufactured soap again.

For a spa experience, give yourself a twenty-minute facial with the Cleansing Clay Mask. It tightens, cleanses, and leaves your skin baby soft and glowing with youthfulness. When applied three times a week, don’t be surprised if your friends soon begin to think you have been receiving Botox treatments.

Our premier product is the Living Clay® Detox Clay Powder, a multi-use, super-charged volcanic ash so pure that you can eat it. It alkalizes, detoxes and stimulates. For more uses and information go to http://www.AboutClay.com .

If you have never had a clay bath, you are in for a treat. “OH…….MY GOD! I just did my first clay bath and it was SO GREAT!!! I feel like a million bucks!” – Lizabeth E.

You can now purchase Living Clay® products, along with other fantastic certified “cruelty-free” product lines, at www.crueltyfreeconsumer.com . Enjoy!”

Thank you, Perry!

Oh yeah….the product that made for the best shower ever…?  Living Clay’s Face & Body Scrub!

Living Clay has been good enough to offer us a fantastic set to give away…. their signature Sample Kit”.  It’s Awesome!

We’d like to send it to you!  All we are asking to win this giveaway is why do you want it?! You have until November 2nd to get on Facebook and tell us why!

Oh Baby!…. (and mom!) Guest blogger from Belly Buttons & Babies featured.

16 Oct

20131016-141608.jpgOur good friend, Fran Loudas, Founder of Belly Buttons & Babies™, has agreed to be one of our first guest bloggers for our new blog series in which we talk to CEO’s, Founders and Influencers of Cruelty Free Companies. (Thank you, Fran!)

It was a spring afternoon in 2010, when my newborn was “napping” that I had the pleasure of speaking with Fran about partnering up together, and having the Belly Buttons & Babies brand join Cruelty Free Consumer.  I remember it well!  Not only was I excited that BBB was a certified cruelty free company….. But Fran was a mom too! (Good for me so she would understand when I had to cut our conversation short…as my sweet precious (cat!) napping baby just woke up and needed some attention and love!)

Belly Buttons & Babies has earned many awards over the years and they offer tremendous products for both mom and baby!  Enjoy her post!
Belly Buttons & Babies makes products for mothers and babies that are produced exclusively from plants and vegetable oils and contain no petroleum by-products or parabens. They are superbly blended and incredibly versatile dual-use products that are extremely safe for mom, baby and the whole family.
Belly Buttons & Babies™ understands that baby’s skin is softer than adults and does not have the same barrier functions as adult skin. Hence our formulations must be mild, yet effective. By using ingredients that are well known to be beneficial to baby’s skin we have developed what we strongly believe to be the purest, safest and most effective baby skincare range available today. Keeping babies natural and chemical-free is our goal.
Natural products from Belly Buttons & Babies soothe delicate skin, are made to heal and protect. Our products are pure and gentle on skin. Luxurious oils and certified organic herbs nurture, while remaining free of the preservatives, artificial fragrances and dyes commonly found in body care products.
• Our promise to you is to bring products that inspire you by being better to yourself.
• Our products care for your skin and your overall well-being.
• Our products are cruelty-free, do not contain additives or artificial colour, are paraben and sulfate free and are made with the most powerful natural, organic and wild crafted ingredients. If you can’t find it in nature, you won’t find it in our products.

Our Philosophy is simple:
Research, test and refine our products.
Our promise to you is to bring products that inspire you by being better to yourself. Our products care for your skin and your overall well-being.
We value consumer input and we take that into account when creating our products.
At Belly Buttons & Babies™, we believe that true beauty comes from within. That’s why we strive to make it simple and affordable for you to nourish yours and your baby’s skin daily with the best nature has to offer.
All of our products are carefully researched and developed to ensure only the finest, most effective botanically based formulas are used.

Again, thank you , Fran!

We hope you’ll like their products as much as we do (and our children!)
