Back at it again. ๐Ÿ’… I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to try a couple of new cruelty-free hair products from my #alkamob family over at @alkalibeauty. ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ˜Š I wanted to share some fun shots and a review of each product.
Alkali CBD Unicorn Milk: Made in partnership with @theunicorntribe/@alix_maya. ๐Ÿฆ„ Who else is a frequent CBD user? ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ I've used CBD in a lot of forms, but never before in my haircare routine. My new article on mindovermango.com goes so much more in depth (give it a read, #linkinbio) but this product has been the perfect refresh I needed in my routine. (Side note: it's also 100% vegan!) ๐ŸŒฑ
The CBD extract regenerates and reconstructs hair proteins. In turn, this helps to promote elastin, collagen growth, and prevents hair breakage. ๐Ÿ’‡โ€โ™€๏ธ My hair gets pretty dry and is known to break off overtime with repeated bleaching/dying. ๐Ÿฆ„ The CBD Unicorn Milk has elevated my already awesome hair routine even more by further protecting my hair from damage and breakage.
Fresh Dry Shampoo: OKAY so I was actually out of dry shampoo when I was blessed with this beautiful bottle. I was literally using translucent face powder because I was so desperate. ๐Ÿคฃ
This dry shampoo makes me not look like a bum when I've gone 4 (+?) days without washing my hair. ๐Ÿฅด It sprays out just enough product so that it's not overkill. I didn't have any issues with pesky powdery/white residue. After brushing my hair out, there wasn't any evidence left behind that I'm a lazy bum. ๐Ÿฆฅ It also has awesome staying power. I was able to go another 2 days before it was time to wash my hair. This bottle has a ton of product, so it's going the last me a really long time (thank God). ๐Ÿ™ƒ
I'm so grateful for the opportunity to try more of Alkali Beauty's products. ๐Ÿ‘ผ Michelle and her team are so supportive and provide the best experiences ever. Thanks for tuning into my little review and also a big thank you to @alkalibeauty for all of your love throughout the years! ๐Ÿฅฐ Remember to click the link in my bio for an in depth article about the CBD Unicorn Milk! ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ’ž #alkalibeauty #gifted #mindovermango

I wanted to share a few products I've added to my skincare routine in 2020. ๐Ÿฅฐ These four products by @nuriabeauty have really transformed the way I approach skincare. ๐Ÿ’ซ I used to use products that were too rough or contained ingredients that turned out to be bad for my skin and the environment. ๐ŸŒ Nuria's skincare is vegan, @leapingbunnyprogram certified, and their packaging is sustainably created. ๐ŸŒฟ  Even more, this month, Nuria is donating 100% of their revenue to the #covid_19 Save the Children response. ๐Ÿ‘ช I will also be donating 100% of my Nuria affiliate sales to the @humanesociety COVID-19 Relief Fund. ๐Ÿพ Together, these donations will provide support to children, families, and animals in need. ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿถ To purchase (AKA donate), click the link in my bio and use my affiliate Promo Code MANGO15 for 15% off. Your entire purchase will help support these charities during this challenging time. P.S. check out @nuriabeauty latest IG post on how to give back even more. ๐Ÿ’™ #nuriabeauty #globalbeautywisdom #mindovermango

I am choosing to feel grateful and positive despite the circumstances. ๐Ÿฅฐ I'd love to know one positive thing everyone has felt as a result of the #covid_19 shutdowns. One thing I am grateful for is that I have had the opportunity to work so much more on Mind Over Mango this year and expand our #crueltyfree platform! ๐Ÿฐ Mind Over Mango has also expanded into #cleanliving practices, and other related eco-friendly health and wellness topics. ๐ŸŒฑ  You can check out our latest content on our website www.mindovermango.com (new article #linkinbio too). ๐Ÿ˜„
I understand this time is uncertain, scary, and straining. If you or a family member have been affected, my thoughts are with you. ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ We need to band together and make a positive impact in our communities. Please stay strong and feel gratitude in every way you possibly can. #gratefulheart #thankyouuniverse #mindovermango

I'm so excited to share with everyone the clean, vegan, cruelty-free subscription beauty box by a new company, @freebunni! ๐Ÿฅฐ This box was courtesy of Free Bunni, and I have not been paid for a review. 
That being said, I really, REALLY love this incredible box. 
Free Bunni is a quarterly subscription that will send you full sized products ($130 value) for $70. Before anyone hesitates, let's do the math:  4 boxes x $70/box is $280/year (or $17.50/mo). If you're paying an average of $25 every month for other boxes, that's $300/year. Right there you're saving money.  You also get 20 full size vegan products/year compared to a few handfuls of minis. ๐Ÿ’ธ  Finally, my review! Here is my full nightly face routine for the past 2 months: *Companies tagged*  Green Tea & Camellia Facial Cleanser: I've been using this cleanser nightly and it's like nothing I've ever tried. It gets super bubbly and fizzy and smells fresh. It's a really unique cleanser that helps take off my makeup every night. It kind of tickles actually and is fun to use. ๐Ÿ˜Š  Flower Water Toner: Next step is this toner. I'm absolutely obsessed with toners (hyperpigmentation) and this is by far THE BEST one I've ever tried. ๐Ÿ˜ญ Definitely my favorite box product. The difference in redness of my skin makes me feel good about myself.  It helps take off leftover makeup too. I also apply before makeup.  Physical Attraction Serum: I use this sparingly since hydration isn't big concern. ๐Ÿ’ฆ The colder months are drying out my cheek areas (no clue why) but this helps revitalize my skin.  Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream: This is such a neat product. I use this every night under my eyes to reduce puffiness. ๐Ÿ‘€ It helps with dark circles too, though that's not a concern for me. It smells incredible! โ˜•  Lavender Lemon Lotion: I use this everyday because my hands get really dry. ๐Ÿ‘ It's creamy and thick and soaks in beautifully. I usually don't use it for my face, but I will in place of the serum if I'm in the mood.  Do I recommend: YES! โœ…  Thank you SO MUCH to @freebunni for this opportunity. I've been using these on a daily/nightly basis the past 2 months and my skin makes me feel  so  beautiful.๐Ÿ‡ #mindovermango #gifted

I can say that I have tried quite a few face washes and mists over the past 2.5 years. So far, Iโ€™ve pretty much enjoyed all that Iโ€™ve tried. That being said, I can say that @lather has been my longest face wash that I have used on a consistent basis. โณ I partnered with LATHER for this post to give an honest review of their products in exchange for a discounted price. ๐Ÿ‡ *Unedited photos. I am wearing mascara, brow powder, and lip stain.*
LATHERโ€™S products are botanically based. ๐ŸŒฟ Their cleansing milk contains oat protein and sweet almond oil that helps to condition skin, while their face mist contains algae and witch hazel extract to clean and tighten pores. Being that it is also vegan and cruelty-free, I decided that it would likely be a no-brainer to test out. ๐Ÿฐ (Shout out to @joinpalm as well for the opportunity to do so)!
My skin has cleared up and more importantly has stayed clear since using these products on a nightly basis. ๐ŸŒ I tried a couple of other new products this month to break up the routine and now kind of regret it. I started breaking out again around my chin, jaw line, and under my cheek bones after straying from my LATHER routine. โ€ข
I like using this face wash every night, especially because it does a great job at removing leftover makeup from the day. My routine is as follows: 1๏ธโƒฃ Remove makeup with makeup wipe. 2๏ธโƒฃ Apply face cleanser and massage on my face and across my closed eye lids + lashes. 3๏ธโƒฃ Rinse, apply additional products as needed, and finish off with spritzing my LATHER face mist all over my face and across my neck and chest for a refreshing coolness on the skin. ๐ŸŒฌ
Would I recommend these products and this company to a friend. YES! ๐Ÿฅฐ Absolutely. Iโ€™ve thoroughly enjoyed using these goods and look forward to my nightly routine after coming home from the day. I can only speak highly of this company and have had great experiences with their products. ๐Ÿ’˜
Thank you so much to @lather and @joinpalm for this wonderful chance to find new skincare products that have been working wonders on my skin! ๐Ÿ˜ธ I think Iโ€™ll continue sticking to my routine for a while. ๐Ÿ˜† #mindovermango #collab
