A few weeks ago I was approached by Andrea from Angie Frog to see if I would be interested in reviewing some of their products. I was extremely excited to try because:
A. They’re based here in Dallas and
B. Their products are organic and vegan. As a bonus, for every 10 bars of soap sold they help plant a tree! How cool is that?
I love natural products from companies that do good so I was instantly drawn to Angie Frog. They currently have three scents available as well as a master collection that includes all three scents for sale on their website which you can find here. (Not an affiliate link!)
The thing I like the most though is how transparent they are about what their products do and do not contain. After finding out that Tarte’s products are neither natural nor cruelty free, despite all their products clearly saying so, I’ve had trust issues with green washing in the cosmetics world. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, Green Beauty Team wrote a great piece on Tarte’s less than ethical practices which is a really good read and you can check out here. But on to the review!
Like the name suggests, this soap is made from Rosemary and Lavender and smells absolutely heavenly. The smell is really warm and reminds me of a cup of lavender tea. Aside from smelling amazing, the rosemary in the soap acts as an astringent, which helps in maintaining the buoyancy of skin. Rosemary is also a known to have antiseptic properties, meaning that it will help remove toxins. BOOM! Science!
Rana Lavanda is their most popular scent and smells quite a bit sweeter than Rosemary’s Relief. The soap is made from lavender and oatmeal and has big chunks of oatmeal inside making it look super cool and adding an extra exfoliating element. This was my favorite from the two and I’ve been using it in the shower this whole week! Because of the oatmeal my skin has felt extra moisturized which I definitely needed since it’s been SO incredibly cold.
Overall I was super impressed with the products and I totally recommend them to anyone looking for an ethical product that makes you smell fabulous. The price for each bar of soap is a bit high ($9.99) but you do save quite a bit of money buying the set for $22.99. At the end of the day though I would rather spend $10 on a product with a good mission than $5 on a similar product that isn’t really helping anyone but myself. Right now Angie Frog is a teeny tiny little company but with such high quality products I know they’re going to grow a cult following very fast (hello LUSH 2.0!).
