As a part-time crunchy mama, I am always trying to find alternatives to our every day products, especially when it comes to things we put on our skin!
I love finding companies run by fellow crunchy mamas who feel the same as I do about the products we use. Even better? Natural and chemical free products for a reasonable price. With kids, it’s hard to justify forking over a ton of money for the natural alternatives to our beauty and skin rituals. Believe me, I get it! We have enough expenses with kids as it is :)
I was so excited to find this amazing company, The Crunchy Mamas, run by two mamas based in Oregon. Not only are their products great, so are they! Some of the nicest mamas you’ll ever have the pleasure of knowing.
When we connected, I couldn’t wait to try some of their stuff!
When I received the goods, of course I tried them IMMEDIATELY ;)
Now, I’ve tried pretty much every “natural” deodorant out there and none of them have ever worked for me. I’m serious, you guys. Like, I want to smell as good as the next person and I have nothing against the previously tried deos, but, I’m pretty sure they were made to do the opposite of deodorant. I was way more self-conscious and felt way smellier when using said previous deos. So, I was a little skeptical to try out ANOTHER natural deodorant.
MIND BLOWN. I was completely shocked by how well the Her Pit Deodorant works. You only use a pea sized amount for each underarm and it smells so good! We went to our local rodeo and it was HOT out. Like, sweat as soon as you walk outside, hot. I wore the Her Pit all day and never had to reapply and I smelled good all day. My family appreciated that I smelled good all day after wearing natural deo ;)
What’s even better is the ingredient list- seriously so simple and effective!
“organic unrefined coconut oil, organic cocoa butter, organic shea butter, redmond clay, arrowroot powder, baking soda (aluminum free), vitamin e, organic lavender essential oil, organic sweet orange essential oil.”
YES. That’s it!
Next, I tried the lip balms (not at the same time, promise).
I’m always cautious when using mint lip balms because every time I do, my lips are not happy. This was NOT the case with the lip balm from Crunchy Mamas! For once, my lips were happy and tingly- not swollen and ouchy! Plus, the mint smells so refreshing without being overpowering. These mamas have got their mix down just right! This minty delight is a perfect lip balm for summer’s hot days!
The Honey-Lemon lip balm is AMAZING as well! Subtle scent, but, still potent enough to smell delicious. You kind of want to eat it…but, you shouldn’t ;)
Both lip balms go on super smooth and keep your lips hydrated for a long time before reapplying is necessary. These lip balms have become my new favorite and I am crazy picky about lip balms!
The ingredients in these lip balms are just as great as the deo!
- Honey-Lemon: organic unrefined coconut oil, beeswax, raw honey, organic lemon essential oil
- Mint: organic unrefined coconut oil, beeswax, organic peppermint essential oil, organic rosemary essential oil, organic spearmint essential oil
Seriously you guys! How amazing do you feel when the stuff you put on your skin, face, and lips is this natural and clean without tons of chemicals you can’t pronounce?
