Hurraw! Balm: Cruelty Free and Vegan

Hurraw! Balm: Cruelty Free and Vegan

Hurraw! Balm is a product that I have read is great, but haven’t yet tried. I’m guessing that I will love it because it’s certified cruelty free, vegan, and is chocolate flavored! Yes, Hurraw! Balm has many flavors of lip balm, and one of them happens to be chocolate. Like me, those who work at Hurraw! Balm love a dark, raw chocolate treat. While it’s not meant to be eaten, of course, it is so safe, you can lick your lips and not have to think about any chemicals that you might be ingesting.

Hurraw! Balm has a very clear label so you know exactly what you’re purchasing with your hard earned money. Here’s an example from the Balm in chocolate.

Hurraw! Balm

The ingredients in Hurraw! Balm are all plant based. It’s certified vegan, and cruelty free, and everyone reading this blog should recognize the Leaping Bunny logo on the label. It’s always inportant to check a company’s stance, but I appreciate that Harraw! Balm puts this important statement in writing, “…does not purchase ingredients from any company that at any point of their growing, handling, or production cycle involves animal testing. Each supplier and every purchase order is confirmed cruelty-free before it is added to our supply chain.

Hurraw! Balm ingredients are cosmetic and food-grade ingredients. Safety testing takes place on Human-animal panels via independent labs. All of the ingredients are guaranteed to be GMO free by the growers and distributors. As if that’s not enough Hurraw! Balm is Gluten Free, Soy Free, and Shea Free.

This is why you won’t worry about licking your lips after you apply Hurraw! Balm: it’s non toxic. There is no petroleum, parabens, synthetic preservatives, or artifical colors.

All of the ingredients are listed. All of the flavors in the Balm are from 100% natural sources, manufactured in the USA and are USDA food grade. Most are from pure essential oils. If you purchase Chocolate, Rootbeer, Chai Spice, Green Tea, or Black Cherry, they are made for Hurraw! Balm from 100% natural, organically derived flavor compounds through steam-distillation and various processes of extraction.

Just in case you’re going to ask, there is absolutely no alcohol in any Balm, or in any of the ingredients!

Here’s where you can find Hurraw! Balm, or purchase it online where you can check out the variety, and the prices–all priced under $5.00.

100% Pure Valentine’s Day Nail Art

100% Pure Valentine’s Day Nail Art

The inspiration for my 100% Pure Valentine’s Day Nail Art is a lovely card that 100% Pure sent to me! Here it is:

 100% Pure Valentine's Day Nail Art

100% Pure’s nail polish is cruelty free, vegan, and 5-free. It’s also free of the common carcinogens found in most nail polishes: formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, and formaldehyde resin. And, to top it all off, it is certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny!

To start, I used the 100% Pure Ridge Filler base. This is actually 10-free. There is no formaldehyde, no toluene, no DBP, no camphor, no formaldehyde resin, no xylene, no parabens, no fragrances, no phthalates, and no animal ingredients! As per the directions, I applied just one coat of the base to my nails (which were, of course, clean and dry). The pink shade is First Love, of which I applied two coats. Glass Top Coat Polish is the last step of the 100% Pure Valentine’s Day Nail Art manicure. The gold heart is just a sticker.

Ice Cream Cone Nail Art with ciaté London

Ice Cream Cone Nail Art with ciaté London

A few days ago I started thinking about creating ice cream cone nail art using ciaté London. While I was experimenting with the shades that I had, I realized that since ciaté is not only cruelty free, but also vegan, many of my readers would be making or ordering sorbet. How about ice cream cone nail art with raspberry sorbet in the cone? Given the weather that we’re having here in the northeast, it would be just perfect for a summer treat! This is my first attempt at this.
