Cruelty Free Vegan Hair Routine

Switching to cf/vegan beauty products honestly wasn’t that hard. Maybe being vegan can make it trickier with carmine etc but overall so many well known brands, Urban decay, Bare minerals, Superdrug to name a few all don’t test on animals. Then you have a fabulous mix of online brands that are predominantly cruelty free, Anastasia Beverly Hill, 100% pure etc and leading body care company’s like Lush and body shop are cruelty free so again that wasn’t hard. It didn’t take long to filter my make up to only cf products. However one thing I did find hard switching was Hair...

How I sorted out my closet and trying to buy less.

It’s the 28th of whatever month and I have money again. Yass, bring on takeaway food and nights out. As soon as I’ve checked my online banking to confirm I have been paid I immediately go on Misguided, Asos, Pretty Little Thing etc. I start to scroll through, oh look, denim jacket that is more ripped than material, I need that in my life.

Okay, so I’ve never actually bought one of those moth bitten sweatshirts and...

Listed below is what I am loving to wear at the moment and what is getting...

Thoughts on shopping cruelty free?

Roughly just over a year ago I completely stopped buying from companies that tested on animals. I can’t really remember how I started considering the practice of animal testing, I just remembered hearing things like Max Factor and L’Oreal test on animals and decided to look further into it. You would think animal testing is a black and white subject. Number one, why do you test on animals and number two, it will be clear what brands do test and what brands don’t. As I said its been roughly a year that I’ve tried to shop cruelty free and...

The Vegan Kind Beauty Box Review

Okay so I’ve still not got the lifestyle box think it’s going to be my new year’s resolution to get it. I am still loving the beauty boxes. I love how many different products and brands you get in the box and I’m still surprised by how many new brands I discover through the box. Dr Organic tropical invigorating cream – I have never heard of this brand before being honest this is the product I’ve used the least just because I have a few moisturisers that need using up. This feels very lightweight, so I have been using...
