6 Cruelty Free And Vegan Sunscreen For Healthy Skin This Summer!

If you are anything like me, cruelty free vegan sunscreen is an absolute must in the summer!  I just burn so damn easily!  One moment it's all fun in the sun on the beach, the next I'm waddling around looking like a lobster.  And believe me, my lobster impression does not do them justice.  And with summer on the way and a real desire to get out and enjoy it... well, I'm in need of some good sunscreen, just like I'm sure you guys are too!

KYPRIS - 100% Natural / Vegan Pot of Shade: Heliotropic Sunscreen

KYPRIS - 100% Natural / Vegan Pot of Shade: Heliotropic Sunscreen - Vegan Sunscreen

Now, this one isn't JUST sunscreen, it also counts as a primer!  A primer with SPF 30!  I might not wear makeup, but if I didn't I know I'd want to give this a try.  People were saying that it isn't greasy and even has a bit of a moisturizing affect on their skin, which I think is always a plus.

TotLogic Safe Sunscreen SPF 30 - Natural, Water Resistant 80 min

TotLogic Safe Sunscreen SPF 30 - Natural, Water Resistant 80 min - Vegan Sunscreen

So, here is a safe, natural sunscreen that you can use on your babies over 6 months old!  We all know how sensitive little kids skin is, so its important to protect them from the sun, and ALSO to protect them from potentially harmful chemicals that are in some products!  But, this product doesn't just work on the little ones, it's also good for the adults in the family!

Ocean Potion Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50

Ocean Potion Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 - Vegan Sunscreen

If you're wanting something with a little more oomph to it, this is definitely something you might want to try.  This Ocean Potion smells like an orange creamsicle with SPF 50 broad spectrum protection.  It apparently absorbs really fast and stays around and keeps you safe for awhile!

Alba Botanica Hawaiian, Aloe Vera Sunscreen SPF 30

Alba Botanica Hawaiian, Aloe Vera Sunscreen SPF 30 - Vegan Sunscreen

This one is another cruelty free vegan sunscreen, but it does have some mixed reviews on amazon.  Some people say it worked wonders while others say it didn't work at all!  Some people felt like it had a soothing, moisturizing affect and others had bad reactions to it.  Overall, this sunscreen IS vegan, and I think it could be wonderful, but it obviously isn't for everyone and you'll have to make your own judgement call on that.

derma e Antioxidant Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 Body Lotion with Vitamin C and Green Tea

derma e Antioxidant Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 Body Lotion with Vitamin C and Green Tea - Vegan Sunscreen

People really praised this sunscreen as being really easy to absorb, light on scent so that it isn't abrasive and it's all natural.  Some reported that it does have a slight white cast, but that it wasn't bad enough to deter them from using it again.  The only think to note is that this is NOT water resistant, so it's not a good choice if you're wanting it for at the beach.  It would be a great pick to take to the park or for hiking though!

Sun Bum Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion

Sun Bum Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion - Vegan Sunscreen

Last, but certainly not least is the Sun Bum vegan sunscreen.  It has multiple levels of SPF protection, ranging from 15 all the way up to 70, and they are all vegan and cruelty free.  I really thought this was a great product to feature because of it's wide range of protection levels.  Plus, just about all the buzz around them is pretty positive, saying that it goes on smooth and really works.

I sure hate it when I find something AWESOME and FORGET to pin the page for later!

Cruelty Free And Vegan Sunscreen For Healthy Skin This Summer!

You should be all set to take on the summer sun now!  I mean, I sure am.  Or, at least I will be once my sunscreen arrives!  Thankfully there lots of vegan choices out there for us, ranging from a nice primer, sunscreen combo, light SPF all the way into some really heavy duty protection.  If any of you guys happen to try these, have tried them or know of other brands that you think are just wonderful, please let us know about them in the comments below or on twitter @TheVeganBanana, we always love hearing from you!  It makes us so happy to know whats on your minds!

6 Cruelty Free And Vegan Lip Balms To Soothe Your Chapped Lips!

6 Cruelty Free And Vegan Lip Balms To Soothe Your Chapped Lips!

Whether it's summer or winter, chapped lips always seem to be a problem!  Cruelty free vegan lip balm is clearly the solution!  This way we can soothe our dry lips while minding our own beeswax!  ...Get it?  Because there's no beeswax in these vegan chapsticks?  Yeah, I know, it was a bad joke.  But, the point is real!  We can get the same soothing benefits without using any kind of animal products.

Plus, a few of the options here are all natural, so there aren't any hard to pronounce chemicals in them.  Now that makes for a happy kisser. ​

Crazy Cat Lady Vegan Lip Balm Set - Pawpermint and Felime Flavors

Crazy Cat Lady Vegan Lip Balm Set - Pawpermint and Felime Flavors

How could I not feature this vegan lip calm?  I mean, it's practically purrfect!  It's vegan and already has the crazy cat lady label on it!  I am definitely a crazy cat lady in training, so I feel like this would be a serious step in the right direction.  Not to mention that people on amazon have noted that it works well.  It's also non-GMO AND is free of artificial ingredients AND synthetic flavors!

Sun Bum SPF 30 Lip Balm

Sun Bum SPF 30 Lip Balm

With a name like Sun Bum and an SPF of 30, I just couldn't resist this vegan lip balm either.  I burn so easily, so I can't wait to get a myself a stick of this for when it's time to head out into the summer sun again.  Reviewers seemed to all love this particular lip balm, the only thing that they noted was some of the people felt like they had to reapply it to often for their liking.

Vegan Lip Balm by Pure

Vegan Lip Balm by Pure

These vegan lip balms have come highly recommended, and from everything I've seen, it's for a good reason!  They have a wonderful array of scents for those of us out there who enjoys that!  With lavender and rose being a favorite of a lot of people.  It also apparently has a good consistency, going on smooth and actually lasting for awhile!

Vegan Hemp Lip Balm Peppermint Merry Hempsters

Vegan Hemp Lip Balm Peppermint Merry Hempsters

The Merry Hempsters vegan lip balm seems to be another favorite for the people who've tried it.  One amazon reviewer stated that she was a dedicated medicated blistex user previously and had been on the lookout for a good vegan, natural chapstick to replace it.  This lip balm did the trick, having that soothing peppermint smell and feel, and it lasted awhile!

Vegan Lip Balm By Eco Lips Superfruit

Vegan Lip Balm By Eco Lips Superfruit

People have reported that these eco lips vegan lip balms are quite hydrating, not to sticky or oily!  One person even reported that the sticks didn't really go soft, even after being in her purse for a long hot day.  Plus, it's pretty cool that the cocoa butter they use is certified fair trade AND organic! 

Hurraw! Lip Balms: Moon Balm - Blue Chamomile Vanilla

Hurraw! Lip Balms: Moon Balm - Blue Chamomile Vanilla

This is being described as the perfect overnight treatment for chapped or cracked lips.  If you need something to help heal and soothe your lips while you sleep, this is definitely what I'd recommend.  It goes on thick, but really soaks in and absorbs easily, so that by morning your lips are nice and smooth.  Plus, one person said that even though they are a belly sleeper, they didn't have any trouble keeping this on and that it didn't seem to smear onto their pillows!

Best Vegan Coleslaw Recipes For Summer Of 2017!

6 Vegan Coleslaw Recipes To Start Off This Summer

With warm days and picnics incoming I thought it'd be a good time to bust out some vegan coleslaw recipes!  I'm pretty sure just about everyone here in the States loves this stuff.  I'm the exception here, it seems.  I've never been a huge coleslaw fan, but I know a lot of people who do!  My mother included.  And that's why I decided this post was important to do.

Plus, I've discovered that I enjoy asian themed slaws with sesame sauce and mandarin orange slices instead of the mayonnaise or vinegar based slaws of my youth.  So, I've included some of those in here as well, for those of you who are like me and don't enjoy the more traditional coleslaw!  Or just want to try something new.

Raw Vegan Coleslaw

Vegan Coleslaw Recipes - Raw Vegan Coleslaw

Here we have a more traditional mayo based vegan coleslaw!  It's got a healthy twist though, given that it's totally raw and wonderful lady over at Healthy Blender Recipes makes her own vegan mayo for it!  She left the coleslaw recipe itself simple, but actually suggested adding things like brussels sprouts or pumpkin seeds, which I have to admit, does sound like a good addition to this kind of salad!

Asian Style Coleslaw Vegan

Vegan Coleslaw Recipes - Asian Style Coleslaw Vegan

Here's a recipe that I thought sounded delicious and looked beautiful!  It's from the two fabulous ladies over at Glamorous Bite!  It's got sesame seeds, lemon zest, some soy sauce and garlic.  Honestly, it just sounds like some kind of cabbage heaven.  Even "I" could dig into this lovely summer cabbage salad! 

Traditional Vegan Coleslaw

Vegan Coleslaw Recipes - Traditional Vegan Coleslaw

Here we have another traditional, vegan mayo based coleslaw recipe for you guys to try!  It looked good and certainly got my mothers stamp of approval!  This recipe is from over at Follow Your Heart, so you guys should go check that out!  It's got quite a few comments saying how good it is, so I have high hopes for this!  And doesn't it look pretty in that bowl?

Vegan Southwestern Coleslaw

Vegan Coleslaw Recipes - Vegan Southwestern Coleslaw

Here is another vegan slaw recipe that I thought would be absolutely delicious!  It's creamy and has some spice to it!  Not only does it have cabbage in it, but there are also sweet potatoes in this southwestern coleslaw recipe!  I have to say, I actually really want to try this really yummy and pretty recipe from Eat Within Your Means!

Creamy Vegan Coleslaw

Vegan Coleslaw Recipes - Creamy Vegan Coleslaw

I admit, I kind of want to try this one even though it is still a bit more on the traditional coleslaw side of things.  It's got some granny smith apples, they use cashews to get that creamy texture and then put in some vinegar for that tart taste.  Which I personally think would go really wonderfully with the apples and cabbage!  Good going to the folks over at Gluten Free Vegan Pantry!

Vegan Tahini Coleslaw

Vegan Coleslaw Recipes - Vegan Tahini Coleslaw

This one sounds like a sweet and salty bowl of deliciousness, I gotta say.  This isn't your ma's coleslaw, but it'll be a really good and healthy twist on it!  Now, the No Fuss Vegan just uses carrots, cabbage and red cabbage, but I could see how adding some brussels sprouts, seeds, maybe even a few dried cranberries for a tiny little punch of sweet here and there!

Cruelty Free Vegan Hair Gel To Force Your Hair To Behave!

posted in: Fashion | 0
Cruelty Free Vegan Hair Gel To Make Your Hair Behave!

If you're anything like me you're constantly on the look out for a good cruelty free vegan hair gel.  I have really fine, wavy and curly hair that just wants to frizz constantly... so, to say the least a decent hair gel is a must have to make it behave.

We've also had a few people ask us if we knew of any decent vegan hair gel brands, so I thought it was about time for me to start really digging in and looking for some to share.  Now, I didn't go looking for any "serious-super-strong-make-your-hair-a-mohawk" vegan hair gel this time around, I mostly focused on some soft to medium hold gel that'll help you keep your frizz down as well as hold it in place better.

Don't worry though, I'll do some searching and find some mohawk worthy cruelty free vegan hair gel soon enough, and I'll be sure to post the results when I do!  Anyway, without further ado lets go take a look at some vegan hair products!

Desert Essence Soft Curls Hair Cream, Coconut

Check out this vegan hair gel - Desert Essence Soft Curls Hair Cream, Coconut

Now, I know this first one is technically a cream and not a gel, but it's 100% vegan and has really amazing reviews by people on amazon!  They are all saying that it's really great for taming your curls, helping them keep their form and decreasing frizz.  People with wavy instead of curly hair reported success as well, saying it improved the quality of their natural waves!

Hold It! Hair Gel - Vegan, Gluten Free, GMO Free, No Animal Testing

Check out this vegan hair gel - Hold It! Hair Gel - Vegan, Gluten Free, GMO Free, No Animal Testing

Alright, our next product IS a gel and even though it doesn't have a ton of reviews on amazon all the ones it does have are (as of now while I'm writing this) 5 stars!  It's got enough hold to help your curls stay formed, while also keeping your hair soft and... well, not crunchy.  Which, as I think most people who've experimented with different gels know can be a problem!

Giovanni 2chic Ultra-Volume Thickening Styling Gel with Tangerine and Papaya Butter

Check out this vegan hair gel - Giovanni 2chic Ultra-Volume Thickening Styling Gel with Tangerine and Papaya Butter

This seems to be a really good hair gel for those of us out there with really fine hair!  It helps add volume, keeps away the frizz, while staying soft to touch and bouncy!  Put it in your hair while wet then either let it dry and it'll help things stay put, or blow dry it into the style you want and it'll help your hair stay in that style until it's time to wash again!

Soma Hair Technology Concrete Texture Gel 8oz Vegan from Soma

Check out this vegan hair gel - Soma Hair Technology Concrete Texture Gel 8oz Vegan from Soma

This is a great gel if you're wanting something that IS a little stronger!  It'll help keep stubborn hair in place, so if that's what you're needing, this is what I recommend.  Now, it still isn't exactly "mohawk" gel, but it'll let you comb your hair into place and blow dry it to stay!  Also, it apparently smells HEAVENLY.

Hair Gel With Aloe Vera By Honeydew

Check out this vegan hair gel - Hair Gel With Aloe Vera By Honeydew

This is a fairly light hair gel, some reviewers even commenting on how "thin" it was.  But, they also said that it really did the trick for what they were wanting.  It keeps fly away hair under control and reduces frizz.  All while being cruelty free and vegan!  No animals were used when testing this product.  How perfect is that?

Herbal Choice Mari Organic Hair Gel

Check out this vegan hair gel - Herbal Choice Mari Organic Hair Gel

And last but certainly not least is this vegan, certified organic, cruelty free hair gel that will certainly get the job done.  Plenty of people have remarked that it has a really pleasant scent, but it doesn't stick around after everything is dry.  Whether you have straight hair you're really just wanting to keep in place a little better or curls that you want to define a bit more while keeping frizz minimized, this seems to be a pretty good option all in all!

Pin This For Later...

I sure hate it when I find something AWESOME and FORGET to pin the page for later!

Cruelty free vegan hair gel brands to make you hair behave!

So there you have it, a solid list of really good cruelty free vegan hair gel!  I hope there's something to help you all!  I know I want to start trying all of these vegan hair gel brands, thus continuing my search for a solid vegan hair product that'll force my mane into submission.  If any of you guys have tried these vegan products, or know of any others that weren't mentioned here that you like, please let us know on twitter @TheVeganBanana, we love to hear from you all!

6 Easy Vegan Tofu Recipes For When You Don’t Know What To Do!

6 Easy Vegan Tofu Recipes For When You Don’t Know What To Do!

We've been getting so many requests for easy vegan tofu recipes!  It's understandable, I mean, when you think of a vegan diet what comes to mind for a lot of people is definitely tofu as a staple.  But, what do you actually... do with tofu?  I didn't know for awhile and neither did my mother.  It was just this ambiguous cream colored block of... blobby stuff.  

Luckily, those days are over for us.  We've amassed a nice list of easy vegan tofu recipes that we like to use!  Simple ways to prepare it for easy use as well as some really delicious recipes!​

Here's An Easy Tofu Recipe "Vegan Baked Italian Herb Tofu" + How to Press Tofu Like a Champ

Here's An Easy Tofu Recipe "Vegan Baked Italian Herb Tofu" + How to Press Tofu Like a Champ

I really liked the sound of this recipe because it's really easy.  But it's also... well, they are slabs, lets be honest here.  Tofu slabs.  I can't help but think back to when I was trying to help my mother wrap her mind around what a meal would look like if we weren't going to eat a slice of meat and I think a recipe like this might have actually been helpful at the time because (to me) it has a slightly more traditional "meat and veggies" feel to it.  Oh My Veggies did good with this one, it's a super easy vegan tofu recipe with delicious herbs and I can think of a lot of stuff to do with it!  Having it in a little pita sandwich like they show on their blog, or even on top of some noodles with some marinara or spaghetti sauce would be delicious too.

Vegan Tofu Recipe Chinese Salt & Pepper Tofu

Easy Vegan Tofu Recipe Chinese Salt & Pepper Tofu

I liked this particular recipe because it's pretty simple and versatile, including two ways to serve it!  It also could easily count as both an entree and appetizer depending on what you're needing or wanting.  You can easily leave this as a simple salt and pepper tofu recipe, or like they suggest on Veggie Belly, throw in sauteed veggies and BOOM.  Insta-yum.

This Healthy Tofu Recipe "Tofu Bolognese" Is Your Basic Spaghetti Made Vegan Style!

This Healthy Tofu Recipe "Tofu Bolognese" Is Your Basic Spaghetti Made Vegan Style! - Easy Vegan Tofu Recipes

Something tofu can do for us when we're going back to some of our traditional recipe roots is give us the textures we're looking for.  Because, when we're making mom's spaghetti (or bolognese in this case) a huge part of the "comfort food" aspect of it... well, it's the texture as much as the flavor.  If something doesn't feel right, it just isn't right!  The blog It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken seriously nailed this recipe though, providing a really interesting way to prep tofu to give it the right texture we're looking for.

This Simple Tofu Recipe "Crispy Baked Tofu" Can Be Used In Many Vegan Dishes

This Simple Tofu Recipe "Crispy Baked Tofu" Can Be Used In Many Vegan Dishes - Easy Vegan Tofu Recipes

I thought this would be nice to include in our list of easy vegan tofu recipes because... Well, it's an easy way to get delicious crispy tofu!  Which, is perfect for us because, personally, unless I'm using tofu as a substitute FOR eggs, I don't want that eggy texture it can have sometimes.  This crispy tofu recipe from Cookie + Kate sounds delicious and I can see how you could either eat it on its own as is or toss it into something else!  Onto a salad, lettuce or otherwise!  Throw it into a sauce with some noodles.  Really, the possibilities are just about endless.

Tofu Popcorn Chick'n (Vegan & Gluten Free) A Tofu Recipe For Kids Of All Ages!

Tofu Popcorn Chick'n (Vegan & Gluten Free) A Tofu Recipe For Kids Of All Ages! - Easy Vegan Tofu Recipes

Now this is another easy vegan tofu recipe that I thought all the moms out there might like.  It seems like something I would have loved as a kid, so, I instantly thought about all the new vegan moms out there trying to find yummy stuff for their little ones!  It's a simple enough recipe, so you aren't going to have to spend FOREVER in the kitchen and you could even easily get the kids involved!  It's an easy and safe way to include them seeing as there's no raw meat involved (blech) and you can do it the way they do over at Happy Healing, just crumble the tofu after draining and pressing it so you don't even have to use any sharp knives!

Easy Baked Tofu That'll Be Great In Stir Fry!

Easy Baked Tofu That'll Be Great In Stir Fry! - Easy Vegan Tofu Recipes

Now, this is the perfect recipe to add into a stir fry.  Or you could just eat it straight up as it's own side or part of a meal.  Really, I can imagine happily popping this tasty little tofu cubes into my mouth for munching at anytime.  Domestic Superhero seriously knows how to cook their tofu, because this just seems like the perfect all purpose tofu recipe!  Include it as an appetizer or toss into another meal to add some chewy tofu bites!

Bonus Video!  The Vegan Zombie: How To Cook Tofu Right

This is actually the first tofu recipe we ever really tried!  Now, we did slightly different spices and such, but we used The Vegan Zombie's method and it turned out so damn good.  I couldn't believe it!  Now, in this video he talks about putting it on salads and eating it strips of it, which is delicious and I do recommend as well, but we put it on a sandwich just like I would have put lunch meat onto a sandwich before I went vegan.  Oh boy is THAT delicious.

I sure hate it when I find something AWESOME and FORGET to pin the page for later!

Easy Vegan Tofu Recipes Collage

Alright!  Now we have several easy vegan tofu recipes to help you figure out what to do with that blob sitting in your fridge.  It really isn't that hard to make tofu into a yummy snack or meal, really all it takes is knowing how to press it and then you're good to go with just about any recipe!

6 Vegan Athletic Sandals To Make Your Summer Adventures Possible!

posted in: Fashion | 0
Vegan athletic sandals with arch support for men, women and kids. Cute, durable sport sandals that are cruelty free!

With summer coming a nice pair of vegan athletic sandals becomes imperative.  Alright, perhaps not imperative, but it's nice and depending on the kind of sports or outdoors activities you get into... well, they are pretty nice to have around.  Whether you're running, hiking or are simply wanting a really nice sturdy pair of sandals to go on long walks in we have found something that should suit your needs!

​So, here we go, lets get on this crazy ride and look at some vegan athletic sandals!

Vivobarefoot Men's Eclipse Vegan Sandal

Vegan athletic sandals with arch support for men, women and kids. Cute, durable sport sandals that are cruelty free! - Vivobarefoot Men's Eclipse Sandal

We'll start off the show with a pair from Vivobarefoot.  They are really known to make great shoes.  These are apparently no different in a lot of respects, and are a really good barefoot vegan running sandal.  There is a problem costumers did report though, and you should be cautious of.  They have said that though this might feel like and be a really great barefoot running shoe in how it feels, the quality and durability has been occasionally questionable.

Chaco Z1 Ecotread Vegan Kids Sandal

Vegan athletic sandals with arch support for men, women and kids. Cute, durable sport sandals that are cruelty free! - Chaco Z1 Ecotread Kids Sandal

Hilariously enough, even though these are kids shoes most of the reviews I've read have all been adults who've bought them for themselves!  These chacos vegan sandals are ridiculously durable though, and apparently have really great arch support!  So, if you're buying them for your kid who is really rough on shoes, these are a great purchase.  If you happen to have small feet and a hard time finding sandals that have great arch support, fit well, are durable and cute these are a great find.

Xero Shoes Vegan Barefoot Sport Sandals - Amuri Z-Trek - Men

Vegan athletic sandals with arch support for men, women and kids. Cute, durable sport sandals that are cruelty free! - Xero Shoes Barefoot Sport Sandals - Amuri Z-Trek - Men

This is another wonderful vegan athletic sandal from Xero Shoes.  For those of you out there who want a really durable barefoot vegan sandal, this is definitely something to look into.  It's sturdy, and has a really nice look to it.  Also, you don't have to deal with anything between your toes which is a bonus!  One particular review noted that he could run for long distances without having to adjust the straps.

Chaco Women's ZX2 Classic Vegan Athletic Sandal

Vegan athletic sandals with arch support for men, women and kids. Cute, durable sport sandals that are cruelty free! - Chaco Women's ZX2 Classic Athletic Sandal

Much like the kids chaco sandals above, these are some ridiculously durable vegan sandals.  Whether you're just wanting a nice sturdy pair to wander around and take your kids to their sports practice in, or you need something that's really going to be able to endure going out on a nice hike or bike ride, these chacos women's athletic sandals seem to be a good choice.  

The only thing people have noted is that there is a bit of a "break in" period for these, so if you get them don't expect to just take them out of the box and hit the trails, you'll want to ease into it a bit more slowly.

If you prefer to wear an full shoe when running check out the vegan women's running shoes we've found right here!

The Oso Vegan Sandal

Vegan athletic sandals with arch support for men, women and kids. Cute, durable sport sandals that are cruelty free! - The Oso

Once again we find another very durable, sturdy pair of barefoot vegan athletic sandals in The Oso.  Plus, the name is really funny and I love it.  The name aside though, with the adjustable straps, nice grip, and barefoot style these are really a good match for someone looking to go hiking or do a bit of running.

Teva Vegan Men's Omnium Sandal

Vegan athletic sandals with arch support for men, women and kids. Cute, durable sport sandals that are cruelty free! - Teva Men's Omnium Sandal

People really like these for hiking, say that they are a really pleasant mix between a river shoe and a regular sandal.  These Teva sandals have good traction and are comfy.  Your toes will stay protected and so will the back of your heel, which when you're out there on the trails can be a real plus.  One con that people have noted though is that it can easily build up some mud and gunk, so you do have to rinse and wash them out occasionally.

I sure hate it when I find something AWESOME and FORGET to pin the page for later!

And those are the vegan athletic sandals we found!  So, when you're looking for those sturdy and comfy summer shoes to take on whatever outdoor adventure life throws at you this season you now have a place to start!  If you have a vegan athletic sandal that you really like, or just really liked these, please come let us know on twitter @TheVeganBanana!
