Every time I think about posting Raw Sugar products I immediately revert back to the Lincoln commercial with Matthew McConaughey. The one where he’s like I’ve been driving a Lincoln since long before anybody paid me to drive one. That’s exactly how I feel about Raw Sugar. Even though this blog post isn’t paid or sponsored, a few of my Instagram posts have been. It’s true though, I have been using Raw Sugar products since I first spotted them in Target years and years ago. Back when they had the massive bar soaps. Does anyone remember that?? They were so huge that if you dropped them in the shower you were bound to break a bone in your foot.
These products have genuinely been a part of my life for at least 10 years now. It always makes me so happy to get to partner with brands that I truly love. Just know that I would never promote a product or brand that I wasn’t passionate about or that I don’t use in my daily life.
Another reason I continue to love and support Raw Sugar Living is the fact that with every single purchase they donate a bar of soap to a family in need. Hygiene is a huge global issue that many people aren’t aware of. Almost 32% of people around the world suffer from unclean living conditions which can lead to terrible illness and disease. I mean, even their brand motto is inspiring… Raw Sugar is a brand built on nourishing our bodies with nature’s pure goodness and building a platform to support true, unfiltered beauty while uplifting one another. So what are you waiting for?
Which products should you try first?
Bar Soap – I will obviously recommend these over anything else since I have have been using them for so long. There’s just something about bar soaps that I love. Am I the only one that loves bar soap to use in the shower? My dad got me hooked on bar soap as a kid and that’s all I use now. The Vanilla bar soap is my favorite scent but I don’t know if they are making that one any longer. I haven’t seen it in a while. I started using the Lemon scent and am addicted!
Body Wash – My husband is a big liquid soap user. I always call him the chick in the relationship because he has the loofa in the shower. It used to be a pink one too! Every once in a while I mix it up and use some liquid soap or I’ll use it as bath bubbles! The Almond and Honey is by far the best!
Shampoo / Conditioner – Talk about the best smelling shampoo and conditioner. I don’t think my hair has ever felt softer and more nourished. There is just something about all natural products that just make you physically feel amazing.
Hand Soap – We have Raw Sugar hand wash in every single bathroom in the house if that tells you anything. I have different scents in each bathroom but my favorite has to be the Almond and Honey! We have those in our master bath so I can use them everyday!
They also make an amazing sugar scrub, body butter and bath fizzers/bombs that I absolutely love. These aren’t products that I use on a daily basis like the others listed above but I do use them on a monthly basis. Just plan on going to Target and buying everything! Because that’s what we do right?? Go into Target for one thing and come out with half the store.
Why go all natural?
Did you know that our skin is the largest organ in our bodies? An extremely large organ that absorbs over 60% of what we put all over our skin. That means our skincare, soaps, cleansers, make-up, lotions, etc. That is a scary statistic… Women put a staggering 515 synthetic chemicals on their skin on a daily basis… without knowing it. As of the past couple of years I have tried to ditch some of my harmful products and replace them with more all natural skincare products. I am definitely not one of those people who swears to only use all natural products. I am one of those people who will take it one step at a time and slowly transition my life to be healthier and more knowledgeable about the products I use.
All of the Raw Sugar products are free of sulfafes, parabens, phthalates, dyes and a re also cruelty-free.
