Concrete Minerals – Eye Shadow, Smut – ★★★★
Description: (Dirty silver with pink-purple undertones) It’s impossible to get the beauty of this incredible color to show-through in photos. “Smut” seems to be an instant favorite of anyone who even glances at it! This shadow looks just as good on as it does in the jar (and it looks reeeeally good in the jar) and compliments every color eye! // 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free! Made in the U.S.A. // All of our products always exclude scary preservatives like parabens and cheap fillers like talc and bismuth oxychloride!
Smut is a gorgeous smokey mauve. My hazel eyes are excited!

Demes Natural Products – Cleansing Oil & Makeup Remover – ★★★
Description: Oil gets rid of oil. Olive and Castor oils are blended with essential oils to cleanse facial skin gently and without stripping or damaging skin like harsh detergents do. It’s also an amazing makeup and eye makeup remover, if we do say so ourselves. // Why? Oil cleanses without stripping away skin’s own natural sebum, and leaves skin feeling soft and nourished. // How? Directions (Oil cleansing method): On dry face massage a small amount of cleansing oil for 1-2 minutes (in small circles). Safe to use for eye makeup removal. Wet a soft facecloth with warm water and lay onto face to let steam soak. Use the cloth to wipe off the oil until it is all removed. Follow with toner and moisturizer as needed.
Oil cleansing is a main part of my winter routine in the evening and I usually use jojoba or almond oil, so I’m excited to try Deme’s blend of oils and essential oils. Castor oil is the first ingredient and I’m curious how such a thick oil will be in their blend. I absolutely love Deme’s Butter Me Up – I’m thrilled to try another product of theirs!

Auromère – Toothpaste, Fresh Mint – ★★★
Description: Fresh mint toothpaste featuring 23 botanical extracts.
For a long time after I went vegan I continued using Colgate/Crest and while I think the ingredients are vegan, the parent companies test on animals. The problem was I hated natural toothpaste. Tbh I still hate a lot of natural toothpastes, but I’ve found a few that I keep in my rotation. Tom’s of Maine it’s convenient and at Safeway, plain old baking soda, and Hello. I think I used too much Auromère the first time around, but I like it! You don’t need as much of this product as you’re used to using and that’s economical and eco-better. It has a clay coloring and herbal scent. The flavor is great compared to so many nasty natural toothpastes. I’m glad to have learned about this company!
