Desert Essence

Many vegans are sharing their favorite products and what they use that are toxic and crueltity free. Today I am going to talk about some of my favorite hygiene supplies that I use from Desert Essence that I swear by.

I will review them from left to right and then front (dental tape being last).

Desert Essence Castile Soap:
This is my most recent purchase from Desert Essence. I use this in a foam pump to get the best consistency. I love the way it foams up in my hand allowing me to wash my hands quickly. It makes my hands nice and squeaky clean. I know it is very effective because it has Tea Tree oil in it. It is toxic free. Some people don’t like the smell that much, but I really love the smell. It somehow reminds me of the desert and makes me feel like there are cacti around me. Regardless, it has a pleasant smell and you can be sure it cleans your hands while not feeling or smelling toxic.

Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash – Original:
I have gone through dozens of brands of face wash to find the best one. All of the top brands regular people use smell super toxic and don’t work that well. I came across this, and although different, it is very effective. It runs a little liquidly, but that is fine. A little goes a long way and it cleans your face. It makes my face squeaky clean when I am done. You can even combine it with a spin brush to get maximum effect.

Desert Essence Daily Moisturizer:
I have been looking for a toxic free face moisturizer that moistens my face and doesn’t leave any shine behind. I really love this face moisturizer. It came in a jar so I decided to put it in a pump bottle. Next time I will probably leave it in the jar, but it works. You might have to rub it in your face a little longer than a few of the ones the absorb quickly, but it’s very worth it and leaves my face feeling amazing!

Desert Essence Natural Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste:
I have been trying to find an all natural toxin free toothpaste that still cleaned my teeth and I finally found what I am looking for. I had found Earthpaste, but it left my teeth looking brown and was not that effective. This toothpaste has a minty flavor and I feel that it is whitening my teeth more than a regular fluoride toothpaste. I might upgrade to the extreme clean on my next purchase, but I am completely satisfied with this toothpaste.

Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Mouthwash:
There are so many mouthwashes out there. Most of them are either toxic or the contain alcohol which leaves your mouth dry and kills all the good bacteria. I found this mouthwash to be effective in cleaning your mouth and leaving it fresh. You don’t need to pour a large amount in your mouth. A little will do just fine and switch it around. It has a good taste too.

Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Dental Tape:
I have been searching around for better dental floss/tape. I have read that dental tape is best because it allows you to remove the stuff on the inside of your teeth rather than removing what’s only in between your teeth. Currently, I am using Oral B picks, but these are a pain because I have to keep washing the debris and bacteria off of them between each floss. I found this dental tape to be very effective, but it’s hard to get in between some of my teeth since some of my teeth are overcrowded. I do hope to someday get my teeth aligned, but once I am done with my Oral B picks, I will use the Desert Essence Dental Floss, and then of course the Dental Tape when my teeth get aligned.

Summary:
So those are my top picks from Desert Essence and I really do love these products they make. I feel that it is very good quality and very effective.
