Frequently, folks feel baffled by the terms “vegan”, “vegetarian”, and “cruelty-free.” Many people use the words interchangeably, not really understanding the designations. The term “cruelty-free” is even more confusing. Is taking milk from a cow cruel? How about honey from a beehive?

One of the best vegan lotions we’ve come across lately is a luxurious coconut hand and body lotion from Ladybug Jane, a vegan brand that offers quite a few beautiful lotion varieties as well as a great range of fun lip balms.
Ladybug Jane’s Coconut Luxury Hyaluronic Acid Lotion was on sample at our local Whole Foods Market, and with one test pump and application, we were hooked.

We’ve tried a lot of vegan facial cleansers and we’ve loved quite a bit of them. But, some of the products stand out for us as superior to the others. Often it’s because of the scent and sometimes it’s because of the texture of the cleanser. Once in a while, we come across a face soap that foams up nicely, and one that leaves our skin feeling super clean and hydrated.
We love milky (not animal milk, no way!) cleansers and foaming gel cleansers alike, so our favorites include both of these types of products.

Does the winter weather have your lips in a perpetual state of dryness? It’s been doing numbers on our lips, which is why we looked for some super-moisturizing vegan lip balms to keep in our purse (or pocket) throughout the season.

You can be pretty sure that a company loves animals if it calls itself Meow Meow Tweet. And, if it puts cute pictures of kitties and feathered friends on its product labels. Oh, and photos of other furry friends too.
And, if it shows all of these animals joyfully playing together, getting along like everyone on earth should.
We love the whimsical nature, with a serious message, that’s displayed all over the Meow Meow Tweet packaging. We adore how precious little creatures are depicted just meowing and tweeting around, without a care in the world, because that’s what we wish for animal and bird friends.
Meow Meow Tweet’s stance on veganism and kindness to animals is clear the minute you look at the brand’s soaps as well as its body care, facial care, and baby products.
