Violets Are Blue is a line of beauty products created without harsh synthetic fragrances, parabens, sodium laureth sulfate or propylene glycol. They also offer a secondary “Beloved Line” of fragrance free products specifically created by Cynthia Besteman, a breast cancer survivor.
The Beloved Line gives “Chemo Care” packages to women who are beginning their treatment at Mount Sinai’s Dubin Breast Center in New York City. This care package was created because many who are in their treatments find themselves overly sensitive to more mainstream products that contain harsh chemicals. Violets Are Blue care packages help to put their mind at ease about what they are putting on their bodies.
Their Beloved Line Deodorant is something I was excited to use and very please with its scent of lemongrass and tea tree. I am always on the lookout for natural deodorants that work as hard as mainstream ones do at keeping me stink free. This deodorant is good about that except in extreme heat.
During humid days in the sun I seemed to not smell as fresh I would have liked. Though if I had the deodorant with me, I’m sure reapplication of it would have helped the situation, as the product says apply as needed. That is just something I would need to remember to carry with me. Otherwise I was pretty pleased with this deodorant and still have it in my current rotation. Give it a try for yourself and check out their Beloved Line of unscented natural skin care products, in the white bottles.
I also had the chance to sample the face and body lotion, which felt like silk going onto my skin. It seemed slightly oily but a good type that felt more hydrating than standard mainstream lotions. Their foot salve was very thick and creamy. This company does great things to help others and that’s already a great reason to support them.
