The Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand TZR Contributors Use Every Single Day

By Michelle Guerrere

The way you style your hair, how you put yourself together, your self-care ritual — all of these elements are what make you you. That’s why the products you use to create your signature look are important. We partnered with Aveda because it’s not hard to stand behind beauty products that use naturally derived ingredients, are cruelty-free, i.e. not tested on animals, and are scented with pure-fume aromas (derived from plant and flower extracts). It’s even easier when those products also help you be your truest self. Below, learn how members of the TZR team have made Aveda a staple in their everyday routines and which products they rely on to capture their style identities.

“My new self-care obsession is treating myself to weekly manicures, and the best way to show off my nails is by making sure my hands are always super moisturized.

It’s easy to forget to have a good hand cream on the rotation, but when I discovered Aveda’s Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme, I gave it a permanent spot in all of my purses. You’re not going to catch me with dry, cracked, ashy hands now.”

“I’m all about a sleek, tailored look — that goes for my hair, too, which I like to keep smooth and shiny.

Living in NYC, however, means dealing with a lot of humidity and frizz. Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother is truly my saving grace. After showering, all I need is a little bit of product to keep my strands looking polished all.day.long.”

“I love warm weather, and so I’ve always had summery highlights in my waves year-round. But last year, I went through a major blonde phase, and although I’ve since returned closer to my natural brunette shade, I still have more than a few split ends as a result.

Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair is a daily leave-in treatment that's been helping protect my hair against breakage. I apply a small amount to my damp hair after showering, and I'm good to go. Bonus: It's also cruelty-free, which I've become more conscious of lately when it comes to my beauty products.”

“My auburn curls have become a signature part of my look, so I make a point to keep them looking as healthy as possible.

When I shower at night, I love the calming scent of Aveda’s Shampure shampoo and conditioner. Breathing in lavender and ylang ylang is a great way to unwind after a long day. Plus, the shampoo is extremely gentle on my fine, dry ringlets, and the conditioner nourishes them without weighing them down. It's a win, win, win.”
