Update: 6 Sassy Sistas is now certified by PETA as both cruelty-free and vegan!
I hate reviewing bad products. Not only because I’m obligated to try it a few times to give it a fair chance, but also because I have to write a pitiful review. And that makes me sad. So, when companies reach out to me for a product review, especially small, new companies, I secretly cross my fingers that it doesn’t suck.
6 Sassy Sistas’ serum doesn’t suck.
In fact, the tiny company is a godsend after my struggle with awful allergic reactions earlier this month. Read my review to see why I have so much love for this little company.
The Veg Verdict — 6 Sassy Sistas Serum
I love this product for a few reasons. It is cruelty-free, vegan, and completely natural (the real kind of natural that means you can recognize all the ingredients, not the “almost kinda sort natural!” pasted onto chemicals with coconut oil.) I also love it because I know my eyes won’t swell shut, so I guess that’s a perk.
Its ingredients are simple: olive oil, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, argan oil, avocado oil.
That’s it. If, “Pft, well I could make that …” was your first thought, I understand because it was mine too. But I’ve tried making moisturizers before, and let me tell you, it is not easy to perfect the proportions. Just imagine yourself in a bathroom with globby oils everywhere, weighing things out like a high school chemist. It’s not going to turn out well.
6 Sassy Sistas has taken all the good stuff and found the perfect proportions. That is the 6 Sassy Sistas secret. (Now say that 5x fast.)
I was afraid to use the serum on my face as a moisturizer or as makeup remover because I have oily skin, but I might try that if I’m feeling gutsy in the future. However, I did use it on the dry patches (ezcema/psoriasis) on my elbows and legs, and it worked beautifully. Not only did I notice a difference in softness, but it felt light. I’m excited to try it next as a deep conditioning treatment.
The 6 Sassy Sistas website says that it can be also used for shaving, mixed with carrier oils, as an exfoliant when mixed with coffee grinds, sugar, or salt, or to moisturize dry footsies (okay, those are my words; but seriously, I can’t say the word “feet.” Shudders.)
Plus, the packaging is cute. It reminds me of a girlier, homemade Jones Soda sticker.
If you want more from the serum than its moisturizing properties, they also offer their product in a bunch of different scents like Whipped Vanilla and Ooey Gooey Caramel. Here are the few I tried:
No scent, no problem.
Girls Night Out — Blueberry Blast:
Remember those cheap, little lip balms you could buy from the machines inside the women’s restrooms in restaurants and movie theaters? No? What about blueberry Lipsmackers from the 90s? That is what this smelled like. I suppose this scent reminded me less of a night out with the girls and more of making Shrinky Dinks in my Easy-Bake Oven.
Laid Back Lavender — Lavender:
Sourced from natural essential oils, I loved laid back lavender. Then again, I love lavender anything. This scent would be perfect for a relaxing Valentine’s Day massage.
Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way — Crisp Green Apple
If blueberry was a bad blast to the past, green apple is a happy one. It reminds me of a Bath & Body Works scent I used as a kid, but it’s still light enough to use as an adult if I’m feeling quirky or playful. This one was also my roommate’s favorite.

Though I haven’t smelled it, I imagine the Men’s Cologne Scent would be a sweet natural Valentine’s Day gift.
12 oz. $34
6 oz $23
Travel Spritzer $10
I know what it looks like. $34 for a bottle of oil? It seems pricey, but you have to remember that some of its ingredients, like argan and avocado oil, would be expensive to purchase yourself. (This 2 oz bottle of argan oil costs $22.50 on Amazon, for comparison. Two. Ounces.) Also, because you’re purchasing a product made completely of oils, a little goes a long way. You really only need a dab if you were to use it as makeup remover or a deep conditioner; a 12 oz. bottle would last you a very long time.
