Love the Skin You're In

Love the Skin You're In

When I was on red carpets or doing in-studio shoots, there was one common question people asked me all the time... "what skincare products do you use?"  Folks... it's all about natural, organic products!  Most products on drugstore shelves contain so many ingredients, you probably can’t even pronounce them all.  Most women know using safe products on your hair is important too.  No sulfates, no parabens, no trash that is unnecessary.  But let’s be real, these products cost extra moolah and you usually have to go out of your way to find them.


What if I told you you could find pure, natural, plant-derived, organic products for your skin, hair, and even lips at your favorite store… Target!  Yes, my dear, it’s time you experience the sweetness of Raw Sugar Living.  It's time to live your best life!


The brand carries delicious-scented shampoo, conditioner, body wash, liquid hand soap, body scrub, lip balm, bath fizzer, hair masque, and their made for gods and goddesses body butter.  If I could make this entire blog about the body butter, I would.. But there is too much to cover! Raw Sugar has nailed the scent and quality of a high-end organic line of body and hair care products, but have conveniently made their line available at Target, with Target prices.  Does it get any better?!

Co-founders Ronnie Shugar and Donda Mullis set out to create pure products for a positive purpose.  They integrated ColdPress Technology to create a line they could be proud of.

Raw Sugar products are jam-packed with vitamin-rich goodness – from fruit and vegetable nutrients, to enzymes and Certified Organic Extracts.  We accomplish this by processing our products through ColdPress Technology®, which keeps everything that is pure and perfect about the whole fruit, instead of trying to filter it down to one part.”

Brought together by a shared belief in doing good, the co-founders’ common goal was to inspire a sweeter world and create real change.  For every Raw Sugar product purchased, a fresh bar of soap is donated to a person in need directly and exclusively through Direct Relief.  The humanitarian aid organization helps improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies and is active in 50 states and 70 countries.  Raw Sugar has donated over 1-million bars of soap this year alone!

“We created the Raw Giving program around our message of self-love and the belief that paying it forward, even with bars of soap, can positively change the world. Our Raw Giving program empowers consumers to give back to communities in ways that literally make the world a cleaner, healthier (and kinder!) place.”

Raw Sugar is the type of brand who knows what it’s like to be an average consumer.  They keep their price-point affordable so everyone can experience organic and rich products.  

“We’d like to thank our customers. They’re the ones that inspired us to always value quality over quantity and continue to keep us going. A little love goes a long way – and it’s this lens through which we hire, empower and inspire.”

I’m obsessed with this brand’s products, but I am also obsessed with their heart.  It’s brands like Raw Sugar who make me excited to go out and purchase their products for myself and for my friends and family.  Their story inspires me to try to be amazing. I’ll definitely be using this line for years to come. Don’t be surprised if your Christmas gift this year includes a little Raw Sugar… you’re welcome.
