WAMA Hemp Underwear Review *


Hey loves! Life has been busy, but so good to me. I’ve been busy working full time as a web designer so that’s why I’ve been absent here and there. I want to thank everyone who has stuck around for the past (almost) 5 years that I’ve had my blog up and running! It’s crazy to think that I started raechic.com 5 years ago.

Enough rambling…let’s focus on WAMA! WAMA Underwear specializes in hemp underwear. You’re probably wondering why you would want hemp underwear? Let me tell you why you should invest in some!

1.) Hemp has natural anti-bacterial and anti-odor properties.

You may not think this is important, but it is. Hemp underwear will leave you feeling fresh throughout the day since it’s breathable and moisture-wicking!

2.) Hemp is gentle on the environment.

I’m not sure if you’re aware but fast fashion has a huge impact on the environment and is a contributing factor to climate change. Hemp is an amazing resource that’s sustainable and we need to be replacing other textiles with it.

3.) It’s stronger than cotton.

Hemp is stronger than cotton, so it won’t become weakened when washed.

I could keep going on but I’ll let you do your own research if you want to!

The Verdict


These underwear are incredibly comfy. I got a size large since they recommended me to size up, and I’m glad I did – they’re the perfect fit!


WAMA sent me their hemp hipsters in black and green. I like the style of the underwear and how simple they are.

The tag is minimal, so your ‘tush won’t be irritated. The band is also super soft and comfy, I like that it doesn’t dig in. These underwear in general don’t dig in anywhere. The seams lay flat and they aren’t too thick and I love that! I can definitely tell that WAMA makes their underwear with quality in mind. Nothing is more annoying then buying some comfy undies just for them to rip in 6 months.

I love these undies so much that WAMA has won me over and they now have a spot on the Brands I Love page, so I hope you’ll give them a shot!

Thanks so much for reading!

Maple Holistics Silk18 Conditioner Review*


Hey guys! Sorry that it’s been such a long time for me to get a new post up – life has been a little hectic and I’ve been trying to focus on my graphic design career. I need to get better with my time management, focus on more important things and basically – get my ass in check. I’ve been busy with working full time, doing freelance projects on the side and trying to maintain a social life. (Also, the Jonas Brothers are back together, so a lot of my time has been obsessing over them again). 

Today, though, I have a review for you! It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed shampoo or conditioner. Maple Holistics sent me their Silk18 Conditioner to try out, so I’ve been incorporating it into my hair routine for the past couple of weeks. Maple Holistics is a cruelty free brand and their products are made in the United States. They carry shampoo, conditioners, lip balms and personal care items – I definitely want to try out some of their other products.

If you guys have been around for a while, you guys know about my hair but in case you’re new…My hair is pretty dry, gets tangled easily, it’s brittle and I have a lot of breakage. I personally don’t use heat on my hair but I know that using water that’s too hot can damage your hair, but there’s other factors too!

Maple Holistics Silk18 Conditioner is perfect for dry, frizzy and damaged hair. (Ding, ding, ding…that’s my hair). The conditioner is silicone and paraben free, which is a win in my book. It smells like vanilla which I really like – it’s not too strong and to be honest, you’ll catch me sniffing the ends of my hair throughout the day because I love the smell (it’s also incredibly soft).

So, why is it called
Silk18 Conditioner?

The conditioner has a “dreamy blend of eighteen silk amino acids” (x) and contains a few different oils to “promote softer, smoother, more lustrous looking tresses”.

What are my final thoughts?

So, I’ve been using this conditioner for probably a month and a half now – here are my thoughts.

I really like the conditioner – I liked how it made my hair look, feel and smell. It was able to tame my frizz that I get towards my roots and it made my hair feel silky and soft. My hair looked shinier and overall, it just looked better. Again, I love the smell of it. It’s not too overpowering but it does leave your hair smelling fresh and clean. 

I think it’s worth the price ($9.75 for 8oz). You don’t need to use a lot of product like I’ve had to use in the past with previous conditioners. 

Do I recommend it?  I do! If you’re looking for a hydrating conditioner that’s great for sensitive skin, then I say give it a go!

That’s all for the post, I hope you guys enjoyed the post. I also hope that you’ll give Maple Holistics some love, too!Cruelty Free Beauty

Cruelty Free Mother’s Day Gift Guide


Hey my loves! Mother’s Day is on May 12th and I wanted to make a gift guide featuring cruelty free products to help you out when shopping for gifts this year! I decided to break it into three categories: fragrance, skincare & body care – so you’ll be able to find something that your Mother will love! These are all different price ranges too so I’m sure something will fit into your budget. I personally love shopping at Ulta for beauty products since they always have a coupon available and typically have some pretty great deals. Right now, if you spend $40 on fragrance, you’ll get a free tote with your purchase!


Marc Jacobs Daisy Roller Ball Trio Box – $45

I think that roller ball sets are a really nice gift! You
get the option to try out a few different fragrances without having to buy a
full sized bottle or get a tiny sample. This makes it easier for someone to
really try out the fragrance to see if they like it. I personally LOVE the
smell of the Daisy perfume. I haven’t tried the other versions, but I’m sure
they smell great too!

DefineMe Fragrance Roller Ball Sampler Set – $21

Here is another roller ball sampler set. I haven’t tried DefineMe yet but I’ve really wanted to after hearing a review from Rhian HY! I think this would be a good gift because there’s lots of different scents to choose from so there has to be one in there that she’ll like…maybe she’ll even share with you! I also love the illustrations and “personality” that they’ve given each fragrance.

Harvey Prince Hello Perfume – $57

So this fragrance isn’t available at Ulta, but I just had to include it. I got a sample of “Hello” in a box from somewhere and I absolutely fell in love with it. It is such a gorgeous scent and it’s definitely perfect for Spring. Harvey Prince is cruelty free & vegan and I like their philosophy.


Andalou Naturals Age Defying Kit – $19.99

Skincare is important no matter what your age is. I think that this age defying kit would be perfect as a Mother’s day gift! This kit includes a cleansing milk, a toning refresher, an enzyme mask, a peptide perfecting cream and a night repair cream – everything you’d need to start a new skincare regime!

The Body Stop Drops of Youth Set – $49

This is also a good set to get into a skincare routine! I love The Body Shop and so does my mom, so I know that this would be perfect for her. It comes with a youth concentrate and and a face cream.

Michael Todd Beauty 3-in-1 Anti-Aging Eye Corrector – $89

So this is the most expensive thing in this gift guide, but I do think that it’s worth the price. I got my sister a Soniclear from Michael Todd a few years ago for Christmas and she loves it – so I know that Michael Todd is a reliable brand. So this set come with an intensive eye cream treatment meant to reduce fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. This set also comes with a rechargeable Sonic eraser which is an “infusion” device that will make your products reach the deeper layers of your skin.

Body Care

Ulta Beauty Coconut Cream Body Wash – $9.50

You can never go wrong with giving body wash as a gift! It’s frustrating when you run out without realizing and don’t have any back ups to use (unless this only happens to me? hm…) I’ve tried this body wash before in a travel size when I went on a cruise. It smells great and works well – they have other scents too so pick what your mom would like best! These are a great alternative to Bath & Body Works who are NOT cruelty free.

Ulta Beauty Peppermint Moisturizing Foot Balm – $12.50

 This is unfortunately sold out while this post is going up, but try to see if you can find it in your local Ulta store! I think this would be a great item to throw into a pedicure basket that you could easily gift your Mom. Grab a couple nail polishes (I suggest ORLY or Wet N Wild!), a nail file or two, and a bath salt so she can soak her feet. The possibilities are endless!

Ulta Beauty Brightening Vitamin C Body Scrub – $18.50

I looooove body scrubs. I think this one would be perfect as a Mother’s Day gift. You could also add this to a basket with some lotion and a new pair of slippers for a personalized gift!

That’s it for the Mother’s Day Gift Guide! I hope you enjoyed the post. Did anything in this guide spark your interest? Let me know 🙂 Thanks so much for reading, as always <3
