    BRYT – Vegan Skincare Review

    BRYT are a natural, vegan, palm oil free skincare brand who reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try some of their products. I love skincare and I’m always trying to find new products that might work for my skin so I was happy to oblige. My skin is dry and sensitive, my biggest problem area being my forehead, it’s dry, spotty, bumpy, red and sore most of the time. Recently I’ve been using Superdrug’s Vitamin E Night Cream on my face before bed so I was interested to see how BRYT would hold up. BRYT sent me 4 products to try, Remove – removes eye makeup,…

    Decoding An Animal Testing Policy

    All of us at some point have fallen into the trap of believing a brands animal testing policy without questioning it. Why should we have to decode and dig deep into an animal testing policy before getting the truth? Surely brands should be open and clear about things like this, you’d think the law would make it so. Unfortunately not. The fact is, the laws around animal testing and advertising/transparency have A LOT of loopholes. If brands were required to tell us that they test on animals, do you think they’d make any money? Probably not. When you ask a brand if they test on animals, they’ll probably come back…

    Top Vegan Perfumes

    So perfume is not something that everyone thinks of when switching to cruelty free and vegan products. Unfortunately almost all of the big, high street perfumes are tested on animals so when searching for a vegan perfume, small is best. I now have a handful of vegan perfumes and I’ve also heard of a load more I want to try so heres my run down on what I have and what I’ve heard of. Highstreet Believe it or not, there are high street vegan perfumes out there, all be it not many. LUSH – Lush are probably the first brand to spring to mind, they have a selection of solid…

    Vegan Deodorants, Which Is Best?

    No one wants to smell bad right? A good deodorant isn’t something you should have to compromise on when going vegan. I’ve been trying out some vegan deodorants over the last year and I’m here to give you the run down on the top 4, what I like about them and what I think could be improved. There’s lots of vegan deodorants on the market and remember that they won’t all work the same for everyone so unfortunately it requires a bit of trial and error. Over the last year I’ve definitely found what works for me and what doesn’t so I hope this can help you narrow down your…

    Skincare Routine – Vegan & Cruelty Free

    Hello Chaps, It’s been quite some time since I last uploaded a blog post and I apologise for that. I’ve been moving house unexpectedly so it’s been a pretty busy last month. Good news though, we finally have a garden! Even though we’ve missed the warm weather, it’s still nice to sit out in the sun when I can. Moving house has stressed me out to the max and when I do get stressed out, I get spots. I figure it’s a combination of stress and all the chocolate I consume when I do get stressed. My chin and my left cheek always seem to be my problem areas and…

    What is Greenwashing? Greenwashing is when a brand uses marketing techniques to sell you the idea that they are a “green” business. Naturally we all want to live a little greener and brands like to play on that “compassionate” part of our brain to sell us their products. Not many people know about greenwashing as we are shown whilst growing up that the adverts are true and the products we buy really are what they say. Unfortunately this is not the case. How do I know if it’s greenwashing? There are some signs you can look out for when it comes to greenwashing, the big one being the use of…

    Step By Step Guide To Going Cruelty Free

    Going cruelty free can be daunting for some people, but I assure you, it’s not as scary as you might think. In fact, the only scary thing about it is the fact the makeup you already own has contributed to the torture and death of thousands of innocent animals. Time to change that I think! STEP 1. Firstly you need to decide what you’re going to do with all your old makeup, you have a few options. You can either use it up quietly and then replace it, this way you aren’t just wasting what you already own. Or you can give it away to friends/family/shelters, others can benefit from…

    Cruelty Free Get Ready With Me

    Hey pals, today I thought I’d do something I’ve never done before and do a Cruelty Free Get Ready With Me! I hope you all enjoy! FIRST THINGS FIRST I usually wake up around 8am, my body clock naturally wakes me up at that time because of work which is kinda annoying on my days off! When I wake up I check my phone, get up to date on whats going on in the world and reply to any comments that may be on here, Instagram or Twitter. After a good stretch I’ll waddle my way into the bathroom, probably moan at my chin spots, then apply my Evolve Beauty…
