To start off, I want to share that I’ve had a beautiful experience with this brand from day one. I love and respect the hard work that Rebecca and Raymond have put into their brand. Carefree Organics not only boasts an inspiring + awesome name, but they have a thoughtful, unique line of products that truly seem one of a kind.
Also, they’re been generous, helpful and communicative in terms of my interaction with them as a blogger. That shows me that I’m sure they treat their customers with the utmost care, timeliness and consideration. Not every brand is like that, so they stands out to me.
Jumping right into the products, I’m absolutely obsessed with the Stress Spray. The combination of the rose water, ylang ylang, bergamot and lavender are such a wonderfully medley for the nasal cavity. It’s truly like a relaxing, deep belly breath of fresh air.
As they suggest, I use this sort of all over! On my face, neck, shoulders as well as our pillows. We’re big on sleep in our house, so anything we can implement to naturally increase the enjoyment/restfulness of our sleep is a great thing to me.
I actually noticed right away after using the Ageless: The Everything Serum how my skin was glowing. Sure, it was clearly because of the Marula oil, which provided a shine. But, there was something else. It felt like my skin somehow got caught up on the 128 glasses of water I didn’t drink last year. Haha!
I love the mindfulness that was clearly brought to this product, as they incorporate hyaluronic acid, marula oil and marine collagen in this serum. It’s a recipe for skin hydration, for sure. I’m thinking that with regular use, you can notice some big skin health gains.
I’d never used a serum for hair growth on the brows and lashes before, and I was curious about trying this one. My main apprehension is that I wasn’t sure if applying something to my lash line would make my eyes sting. It actually wasn’t one bit uncomfortable and forgot I had it on (I’ve been applying it about 2 hours before bed).
The ingredients on the Brow + Lash Serum are cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, silicone-free, talc-free, and eco-friendly. That said, I typically look for ingredients that are straightforward, recognizable and/or botanical plant compounds that are familiar to me.
I did a little research on the ingredients in this formula that I was not familiar with, and I can report that they have a rating of 5 or lower on the EWG Skin Deep rating scale. On their scale, 0-2 indicates a low hazard, and 3-6 indicates a moderate hazard. This is on a scale of 10, with the 7-10 range being high hazard.
I do want to point out that I recognize we all fall at different points on the spectrum in terms of the ingredients we look for. If you are simply looking for cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, silicone-free, talc-free, and eco-friendly, then this product could be a good fit for you.
I’ve only been testing this serum for about 2 weeks; my lashes and brows do seem healthy. It’s hard to say at this point if I’ve noticed growth. However, similar to hair on your hair, it’s not going to grow a ton overnight. With regular & consistent use, I’d imagine you’d see some results.
This is a great idea for a product; a primer that lays down an illuminating layer that will sit under your foundation or finishing oil/serum (if you’re not wearing makeup). My preference is to use it as a layer under makeup. It definitely lights up your complexion and gives you a noticeable glow.
Similar to the Brow + Lash Serum, the Starry Skin formulation included a few ingredients that were unfamiliar to me. They sit 4 or lower on the EWG Skin Deep rating scale, similar to the Brow + Lash Serum Ingredients.
I did gain some insight on the Brow + Lash Serum and Starry Skin ingredients, in case you are curious like I was. There two products are part of Carefree’s lab-co created line which varies from their small batch, in house products. The lab they collaborated with uses some ingredients in their formulations that Carefree does not in their other products. These ingredients are slightly more main-stream in the green beauty world.
Would I Recommend?
So, would I recommend these products? I would highly recommend the Stress Spray and Ageless: The Everything Serum. These two products are clean, they boast anti-aging benefits and they leave you feeling calm + hydrated.
The Brow + Lash Serum + Starry Skin are in a different category, in my opinion. I would recommend them as a step in a cleaner direction if you currently use a generic hair growth serum and face primer that contain a long list of toxic ingredients. It all depends on what your barometer is for cleanliness of ingredients.
Also, EWG is not the only source of ingredient information, so I encourage you to do your own research on ingredients that you’re interested in!
