Volition Beauty Review: First Impressions

volition beauty review

Every so often I come across a brand that literally blows my socks off. Volition Beauty is one of them. They were kind enough to send me these two products to try and it was truly love at first try. So I, of course, had to do a Volition Beauty review and share this awesome brand with you guys, because they’re truly one of a kind. Here’s why…

How Volition Beauty Works

A beauty brand that allows you to be a beauty innovator? Yes, please! I love any brand that allows consumers to get involved. But Volition takes it one step further and actually allows you to submit ideas for beauty products! How cool is that?! You can also discover product ideas, or “campaigns”, and vote on your favorite. Successful campaigns become part of Volition’s permanent collection so you can shop them anytime!

Why Volition Beauty is Better

Volition promises “performance and results without harmful chemicals”. They are formulated without “bad-for-you” ingredients such as sulfates, phthalates, parabens, nitrates, coal tar, formaldehyde, BHA and BTA. They’re also formulated to be hypo-allergenic or non-comedogenic. And… drumroll please… they’re cruelty-free!!

Volition also takes an interest in what their consumers are looking for and lets them vote on products, instead of leaving it up to a group of executives. You decide what products are best, not the other way around. So many beauty brands tend to shove beauty products our way telling the consumer what’s best and why you need it. But Volition lets you decide what’s best for you by solving real beauty problems. #respect

Ok, now on to the goodies…

Illuminating Body Milk

“Oooooh, pretty” – my immediate response with just one swipe (as you can see below). Said to be like magic, the Illuminating Body Milk leaves a gorgeous sheen on the skin. I couldn’t have tried this at a better time because it’s perfect for summer! The light reflecting particles leave my skin looking dewy and illuminated. Anytime I wear shorts or dresses I apply this moisturizer on my shins to give the ultimate summer glow. And boy does it glow. We’re talking celestial status. I even put a small amount in a travel container to take with me on vacation because it’s too good to be left behind.

Thanakha Radiant Bronzer

This stuff is pure gold. Don’t let the liquid consistency and the word “bronzer” in the title scare you. The Thanakha Radiant Bronzer is more like a liquid luminizer and tinted moisturizer in one. Or simply put, a complexion enhancer that gives skin a natural glow while diffusing imperfections.

The main ingredient, Thanakha, was used by Burmese women centuries ago to minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and imperfections and offering long-term skincare benefits.

I generally opt for lighter foundation options in the summer, but this has replaced all my other products. I almost stopped using foundation altogether since receiving this product because it makes my skin look unreal when I wear it on its own. It moisturizes, corrects and faintly conceals while adding a subtle bronze glow. It also easily matches to the rest of my skin tone in the summer when I’m more tan without having to pile on darker makeup. #win!

To apply, I just use a few drops on my hand and blend all over my face similar to how you would apply a moisturizer. And that’s it! Super easy (and quick!) to use. I’ve also used the dropper to drop a small amount on different areas of my face and use a buffing brush or Beauty Blender to blend everything in. But the consistency is so light and easy to blend that using my hands has been the fastest and easiest way to apply.

I've recently swapped out most of my chemical products to mineral-based alternatives, and this @coola Mineral Body Sunscreen has quickly become a fave. Why? It's SPF 30, certified- vegan, coral reef friendly, uses more than 70% organic ingredients, AND has a sheer finish. Check, check and check to all my sunscreen requirements 😎Have you switched to mineral sunscreens? @ultabeauty #coola #mineralalltheway #suncare #beachessentials #summerready
  • I should really clean this mirror more often 🤔 Anyway... here’s my uniform as of lately. Shoutout to @aninebingofficial for making the best “lived in” tees 👊🏼 http://liketk.it/2BmeI @liketoknow.it #liketkit
