Shower Products I Use!! (Vegan)

I was really hesitant on writing this post because in all honesty, who cares what someone uses in the shower? But then I thought it could be helpful to anyone looking to switch to vegan and natural shower products, so here I am, sharing with you all what I use in the shower... ha ha ha. I have been using all products listed here for almost a year or more now and I love them. I'll keep this short and sweet, and I'll link everything so you can check them out via brand website.

For shampoo and conditioner I use Nature's Gate. I typically buy them at Fresh Thyme, a local organic grocery store. Vegan, non-GMO, cruelty-free, and paraben-free are all characteristics of these wonderful shampoos and conditioners. This stuff is so good to my hair, leaving it soft, and the ingredients are pretty decent. The plastic bottles are made with post-consumer material and are also recyclable. I'm really not sure if you can find this brand at Target and Walmart, but if they cater to natural products, it's worth a look. I buy it for $6.99 which I think is rather reasonable for the great quality. Sometimes when you buy vegan and natural, it's going to cost a little more but really, it's worth it. Check out Nature Gate's website here

I love this face wash! It smells great and leaves my face feeling fresh from the menthol. I've been using it for well over a year because I love it so much, plus my face is extremely sensitive so I'm not really one to switch back and forth between different face cleansers. Burt's Bees doesn't test on animals, but is unfortunately owned by Clorox, a company that isn't completely cruelty-free. You can check it out here

Lastly, behold the dry brush. Dry brushing is something I discovered not too long ago and I really like it. Your skin, the largest organ in the human body is an organ of elimination. One third of your body's toxins are excreted through your skin and dry brushing helps to unclog pores and help to remove toxins that get trapped in the skin. Basically you'd buy a bamboo, natural bristle brush (non-synthetic) and stand in the bathtub before you shower. Starting with your feet, move in long sweeping motions towards your heart- always brush toward your heart. Brush several times in each area, overlapping as you go. I'm not going to get too much into it, but if you'd like to read into more, check out this website with more great information! Benefits of dry brushing include exfoliating dead skin, stimulating your lymphatic system, unclogging pores and de-congesting skin, reduced cellulite, and so much more. I don't the brand of this brush so I can't direct you to any specific brand, but anything natural and non-synthetic will do.

I hope you enjoyed this quick post! I keep my shower routine pretty minimal and as I mentioned above, I've been using these products for quite awhile now and don't plan on switching any time soon. For body wash I just use a eucalyptus bar of soap - how boring - which is why I didn't include it. I highly encourage everyone to join the movement and switch to cruelty-free products.
