Normally we do not review vegetarian and cruelty-free beauty product lines that are not attached to an official website because we know how much you all love to research these companies yourself! Well in this rare instance, we are going to make an exception because this company, The Dream Products, is such a great little hidden gem, that we felt it too wonderful to not share. It has been a favorite beauty secret amongst some of our writers for several years and we want to let you all in on it!
Created over 13 years ago by Denise Merryfield, these custom-blended vegetarian products are made to order. Explaining that friends and family are the testers for her products, and not animals, Denise also ensures that her ingredient suppliers are cruelty free as well. Some of her products do contain organic beeswax, but the strict vegan can request a substitute for this.
The Dream Products are all based from an impressive list of healing ingredients, including essential oils of lavender, tea tree, geranium, eucalyptus, grapefruit, peppermint and lemon. The products all include various combinations of vitamins A, B complex, C and E, as well as copper, folic acid and zinc. Again, all of the products are customizable, so if there are any ingredients that you want added or omitted, Denise can take care of that for you! Remember that everyone has different skin, so if you try a particular product that doesn’t work perfectly for you, try it again with ingredients that are geared towards your specific skin type.
The Dream Products vegetarian and cruelty-free beauty products are a full line of face care, eye care and skin care. Lotions and creams include Face Dream lotion, Night Face Dream, Hand Dream lotion and Body Dream lotion. The eye care line includes Eye Dream lotion, Eye Dream Night Dream lotion and Eye Dream 3-in-1 Night Gel. The Dream Products features everything needed for complete skin care, including, Face Dream Facial Cleanser, Face Dream Honey Facial Scrub, Face Dream Facial Toner and Face Dream Clay Mask.
The Dream Products vegetarian and cruelty-free beauty products line also have a few hair and body products. Their body product line includes Body Dream Body Scrub, Body Dream Sparkle Lotion and Body Dream Shower Gel. For your tired tootsies, they also have a cooling peppermint Foot and Leg Dream Lotion. For those looking for a nourishing hair product, Hair Dream Shampoo are full of moisturizing and nourishing ingredients such as vitamins B, E and aloe.
All of The Dream Products are available in sample size if you want to give them a try first, and Denise is currently offering a special deal where customers will receive $2.50 off of all orders that are $25.00 or more. As we said, there is not currently a website for The Dream Products, but ordering information, as well as a complete product list, is below.

*THE DREAM PRODUCTS PRODUCT LIST*
*FACIAL PRODUCTS* – All can be customized to your own skin needs at no extra charge.
Scents available on all facial/body products, except not recommended for any eye products: Raspberry, Strawberry, Tangerine, Creamsicle, Lemon, Grapefruit, Cotton Candy, Lime, Almond, Vanilla, Lavender, Mulberry, Vanilla Mint, Candy Apple, Banana Nut Bread, Key Lime Pie, Warm Gingerbread, Hazelnut, Blueberry Muffin, (New scents: Plum Berry, Coconut Lime, Jasmine Vanilla and Orchid Jasmine), or Unscented. The Face and Eye Dreams now can have caffeine added, which has been proven to help reduce the risk of skin cancer and caffeine could one day be used to cure skin cancer, scientists believe. Also SPF 8, 15, 25 or 30 can be added to any of the products, but if you have sensitive skin I recommend putting on a second sunscreen separately. I do not suggest adding scent to any of the Eye Dreams because of the very sensitive eye area.
