Taking Care of Your Skin

Disclosure: The products below were provided to me by The Gnarly Whale. However, all opinions are my own.

Today I’m going to let you all in on a little secret…I’ve never had a pimple or zit anywhere on my face or body. {Let me give you a minute to let that sink in.} When most girls (and some guys) find this out about me, they immediately say “No way! That’s impossible!” Some even curse me.

But the real truth is that I have never had a pimple because I take good care of my skin. I believe in splurging on my skincare items and using products that are allergy-free and don’t contain parabens.

I can’t stress to you how important it is to take good care of your skin, both on your face and the rest of your body. I’ve washed my face every other day with Clinique products ever since I turned 13 and I strongly believe this has kept me from developing pimples or acne problems. I’ve said no to clogging my pores with chemicals and parabens that some companies sneak into their products.

So you can just imagine how thrilled I was when one of my blogging friends, Ashley, decided she wanted to open an all-vegan shop, named The Gnarly Whale. They specialize in bath and beauty products that are…

  • 100% Vegan
  • Not tested on animals
  • Free of harsh preservatives

I was given the opportunity to test out a few products from The Gnarly Whale and I was so so pleased with all of them!

1. The peach lip balm has become one of my new favorites. It’s like slathering yummy peaches & cream goodness all over. I keep it next to my nightstand and apply it every morning and night. I’m already planning on purchasing the cotton candy lip balm next!

2. Next up, is the orange exfoliating scrub. This product has literally changed the way I view exfoliators, which usually make my skin red and itchy. However, this one was completely different! The smell is amazing and makes my whole shower smells like the Orange Crush soda. {The lavender exfoliating scrub is also amazing if you’re looking for a more relaxing scent!

3. The last product I had tried was the Thai Coconut Beach Waves spray. I’ve only used this spray a few times and I’m still getting used to it. It gives my hair great texture but I haven’t mastered the “sexy beach waves” hair quite yet, but I’m not giving up!

    I think I’d be most excited about trying the face/body exfoliators.
    Thanks for getting out the word on these great products. I’ve just recently started with maintaining a real skincare routine, but haven’t been thrilled with the products I’m currently using so I’d be thrilled to have the opportunity to try these!

    These products look AMAZING!!!! I definitely want to try them all, but especially that orange crush-like exfoliant :)

    And you are SO lucky… I have pretty good skin but have a rough patch every here and there. Bless your heart! lol

    The Strawberry Beach Waves for hair would probably be my first choice…although, all of their products sound delicious!

    These products look really awesome! And the packaging is so beautifully done! I barely wash my face (slight exaggeration, I’m not dirty) and never get acne. Maybe it’s just good genes?

    Beggars can’t be choosy. I would love ANY of these. Going to browse the Gnarly Whale shop right now…

    All of the products look amazing!
    I would love to try the Beach Waves spray; I’ve been growing my hair out and it’s naturally wavy, so I think the spray would help keep the frizzies at bay :)

    How to pick!!! Probably the beach waves :) I like to leave my hair curly for work I feel like there’s no point killing it with heat for my co-workers hah. Now I feel like I need a good product without harsh chemicals to keep my hair healthy! #longhairandicare

    I really want to try the coconut beach waves! My hair is naturally curly, but I LOVE using products that are made for beach styled hair because they tend to give my normally very curly hair a different look! And, I’m all about “healthy” hair & skin products after working in salons for years. I’m crazy picky!

    I would love to try the pumpkin exfoliator or the mango lip balm. Or maybe the manly man exfoliator for my husband!
