    Did anyone else check their toothpaste for the calcium carbonate ? Lol I used Tom’s and it has it. Thanks for sharing all of those great products. I’ll have to check out the green Beaver company. I saw that conditioner at Costco maybe I will give it a try. πŸ€—

    Love the vid! A long time ago I remember Derek had said In one of his vids that you don’t care for the Crystal Rock Deodorant? That always stuck with me lol Was wondering if there’s a specific reason you don’t like it? Something bad about it? Or just a preference thing? It’s the only natural deodorant I’ve used long term but looking for other options, def going to try the baking soda!

    In our house we use the Ethique shampoo and conditioner bars. They are plastic free because they’re just bars and even the Box and sticker on the Box are compostable. The conditioner bar we are almost done with we started using on March 1st and we still have a good portion of the bar left! The shampoo we go through a little quicker but they’re both really nice. I did not care for the lotion bars but the shampoo, conditioner and soap are really nice.

    I would love to see your natural waves! I used to also dislike my waves a year ago but YouTube recommended a video called "I didn’t know my hair was curly" by Gillian McLellan and it changed my life πŸ˜… In stumbled across the curly girl method (in a cruelty free version of course) and my hair changed a lot! Instead of trying to defeat my waves I supported them by using mouse / gel and scrunching it to become more wavy and they even became curly! You just need some patience with it 😊 what also really helped was not brushing anymore as it caused so much damage and works against your wavy / curly form πŸ€—
    I would love to see you trying this, because it completely changed my relationship with my hair ❀️
    Have a great day, loved the video! πŸ₯°

    Curlies unite! Don’t give up! I’m 50 and only just in the last year or two figured out WTF to do with my hair.

    I have a question about the castille soap. I’ve only tried Dr. Bronner’s, but I could never get it to lather on my washcloth. Even using a ton at a time. Which isn’t how you’re supposed to get the benefit of concentrated castille soap. How do you use it and do you have that issue?

    Do you do tai chi, qigong, falun gong, or yoga you talk fast. I have been watching both for over 2years.

    Got the MyChelle Sun Shield! It looks great on my freckle face! Hubby said I looked radiant and not one reaction on this sensitive skin! Thank You for taking the time to do this!

    Great video Crystal! I should look for a couple of those items! Do you get Pacifica or SunBum in Canada? I just bought their hair care products and they are vegan. Pacifica is my fave. They are cruelty free πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

  16. trish friesen on November 17, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    Excellent choices! I purchase Alba & Avalon at Save-on-Foods and Shoppers Drugmart has a large selection of Cruelty Free products as well(Live Clean, Pacifica, Attitude etc).

    This was awesome also going to share with my wife πŸ™‚

  18. Angela Boulton on November 17, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    There’s a website here in the UK called Greener Beauty and the lady who runs it is vegan and super lovely. Everything she stocks is vegan and cruelty free and she writes little tips on the receipts sometimes (very sweet and helpful) and stocks Giovanni products, so I highly recommend x

    I have super wavy hair also! I really love using the Eva NYC brand – they have this Mane Magic 10-in-1 primer that is SO nice for your hair before you put heat on it. It has sunflower seed oil and argan oil. You have to try it! It really makes a difference.

    🀍 😌

  21. Rowena Anderson on November 17, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Thanks for the ideas. I turned 30this year and genetically have good skin but I also like to enjoy the sun… unprotected. You remind me to start looking after myself but I’m torn because products cost money and it’s just more stuff to add to your routine. Wish me luck!

  22. Jeanne Amato on November 17, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    Glad you have your own place here now. What you do us important. Thanks for all your help.

    Yes! I love this. πŸ’œ I started shopping cruelty free WAY before I went vegan. So good. πŸ˜ƒ
