Current Cruelty-Free Skincare

Since going Cruelty-Free a few months ago I've discovered a few gems. I thought that this for me would be the hardest part when switching to CF however, i've found new items I never knew existed and now I am totally in love with. So I thought today, I'd show you my favourites...

St Ives Blemish Control - This face scrub is absolutely amazing, made with 100% natural exfoliatants(crushed walnut shell) also containing my favourite scent of all time apricot! I adore this scrub for days when I've been wearing a lot of make-up as it feels like it's really giving me a deep clean while not being abrasive or harsh on my sensitive skin.

Vita Coco Coconut Oil - This is one of those multi-use products everyone should own, I picked this tiny little 50ml pot up in Holland & Barrett. So far I've used it just above my eyelids for dry skin, I cant for some reason put any creams/eye cream there as it makes my eyes painfully irritated but this doesn't at all, as lip balm, brow tamer, for taming split ends and lastly cuticle oil! 

Antipodes Rejoice Day Cream - If you have me on instagram you'll know I rave about antipodes a hell of a lot. This is my favourite product by them so far, it's light and contains Manuka flower oil for healing(great for blemish prone skin). I've also seen they have new mini versions of this that would be perfect for my gym bag.

The Body Shop Seaweed Gel Wash - Another one that's great for blemish prone skin, I especially love this one because its soap-free & oil-free while leaving my skin feeling super clean and matte. 

Antipodes Manuka Honey Eye Cream - Another one from Antipodes(Surprise, surprise!), So like the Manuka honey day this is also useful for healing and contains anti-inflammatorys which are perfect for the under eye area. I've had this little jar for so long now and I'm only just hitting the halfway mark. A little bit really does go a long way and doesn't leave an oily/sheen feeling once absorbed. 

The Body Shop Coconut Lip Butter - I mainly use this just before I go to sleep as it actually has a real lotion-y look to it. However it goes on thickly and absorbs through the night and leaves my lips super soft and mega hydrated, Definitely one of those things I would be lost without now. 

What's your favourite cruelty free skin care brand?

10 Things you probably didn't know about me..

  1. I have a moderately hidden hobby, It's not something I shout about often or tell many people about as it's something I really enjoy and I do it for my own entertainment. I am completely self taught in special effects make-up and specialize in illusion make-up mostly. You can view some of my work HERE

Back with yet another Lush Review, I've been haulin' recently so I've got a few posts in the bank ready to be rolled out! This time, we have The Comforter, Previous to this I'd always pick it up, smell it and love it but the price put me off at over £5 per bar, I thought it was a little bit expensive for a one time bubble bath.

Hello Guys!

Do you ever find yourself doing something and thinking 'I wonder if anyone else on this planet does this too, because if they don't they definitely should...' this is one of those things. Even someone who is completely inept when it comes to cooking(aka me.) can do this.
