I first fell for Barefoot Venus a few years ago, when a good friend gifted me some of their luxurious lotion for my birthday. I am a sucker for anything natural, organic, or cruelty free…In fact, I think every one should be. I don’t believe animals should suffer so we can wear pretty lipsticks and eyeshadow, wash our hair and face, or indulge in body lotions. We can do all of those things with products that are cruelty free, by companies who have a conscious and are able to provide outstanding products without harming animal.
Barefoot Venus makes a wide variety of products: body lotion, facial cleansers, body wash, bubble bath and salts, lip balms, hand and foot lotions, and more. Their products are made without parabens, sulfates, synthetic colours, propylene glycol, all those unnecessary unnatural ingredients. Instead, Barefoot Venus uses shea and cocoa butter, natural fruit and herb oils and extracts, green tea, and all the yummy, natural things. You can feel the difference when using this product. Their body lotions are so rich and actually moisturizing; when using a drugstore lotion, they feel sparse and watery and not at all moisturizing.
Barefoot Venus is also made in Canada! I rejoice when I can find a quality product I love and in purchasing it can support the economy I live in.
Not only does Barefoot Venus have an amazing product, they have the cutest packaging! A bunch of their products feature adorable pinup girls… how perfect! With scents like Vanilla Shake, Lemon Freckle, Coconut Kiss, Hunny Mango, and Wild Ginger & Sweet Orange, there is something to delight everyone. Just listing all the scents is making my mouth water… goodness me, I need to get more Barefoot Venus lotions and quick! Barefoot Venus also makes for a delightful gift for birthdays, weddings showers or gifts, for the hard to buy for, for the just because, for gift exchanges…for any occasion.
Barefoot Venus is just divine, plain and simple. And what pin-up girl does not want to feel divine?
I can’t stress enough how important I think it is to buy cruelty free and natural products. Yes, they are more expensive, sometimes significantly, so they can be a luxury. That being said you can definitely find makeup, soaps, tooth pastes, and cleansers for a similar price to the unethical ones society has accepted as the norm. In regards to body lotions like Barefoot Venus, you use less of the products because it works so well, so it will last longer. And if it is still out of your budget… you can also ask for it for your birthday or Christmas, like I will be doing this year!
