Over the last 9 months of being vegan (today it's been 9 months-YAY!), I have tried to assess every product I use, to determine if I could find a more animal-friendly and/or earth-friendly version. I am far from an earth-perfect consumer, but I have made some really great changes in my daily routines. I have used the Environmental Working Group's website for Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety in my quest for natural deodorant, sunscreen and skincare.
I was recently on the mission to find a natural deodorant, but I have since decided that natural deodorant doesn't exist for me. I tried several products and none of them lived up to my expectations. The crystal products were a joke for me. The Tom's of Maine was horrible. I didn't try the Lush products, but the reviews don't sound very convincing. If you know of a natural deodorant I should try, let me know; I am waiting to be wowed. For now, Secret Clinical Strength is my go-to deodorant. It registers as a 5 out of 10 on it's hazard level. Not the worst, but certainly not the best...and I don't stink!
If you haven't seen a photo of me, let me tell you how pale I am; I resemble a ghost. This is me in the sun, looking as pale as could be, last spring.
Mychelle website). It does the job: 1) It protects my skin with natural ingredients. 2) It doesn't make me look like a sweaty ghost. 3) It is a vegan product.
Clear Skin Cleanser by Mychelle. 1 bottle has lasted me 5 months so far. I'll probably need to order another bottle in a couple weeks. A 4.4 oz bottle is under $18. It is gentle, but you can feel how clean your skin is. A bonus is that it is vegan!
Fruit Enzyme Scrub every other day. 1 bottle of the scrub lasted exactly 5 months for me. It costs $17 a bottle.
Oil-Free Grapefruit Cream that controls my oily skin, but gives just the right amount of moisture. A bottle costs around $30 and lasted me about 4 months.
vegetarian/vegan product listing page online. The next Mychelle products I want to try: NOTOX anti-wrinkle cream, Revitalizing Night Cream and the Fruit Fiesta Peel (all vegan). Give Mychelle a try! I think you'll love it!
