Do you really know what is in your everyday beauty products? I certainly didn’t, until I looked into it one day.
Those of you that know me, will know that I was vegetarian on and off for years.. Always tried to eat more vegetarian than meat and eventually all I was eating was chicken and fish, so I gave that up and now I rarely even eat seafood. So, essentially I am a pescatarian, but I really do try to eat as minimally harmful as possible.
A few months back, I started to really think about the products I was buying and the journey they went through to make it onto store shelves. It saddened me at how many everyday products we’re tested on animals, so I have been slowly transitioning my things over to being animal friendly.
Some of my personal favourite products are:
Live Clean – Hand Soap and Lotions
Carina Organics – Shampoo and Conditioner Sweet Pea
Nature’s Gate – Shampoo and Conditioner
LUSH – Of course, they have endless things to buy, but my personal favourite is their Ocean Salt scrub
ELF Cosmetics – currently I only use their mascara, but it’s nice that it is affordable!
I Luv It Deodorant – Discovered this one day and I was a little skeptical as most natural deodorant’s don’t work.. This stuff DOES! Unfortunately they’ve discontinued my favourite scent, but they have deodorants for sensitive skin too!
Routine – similar to I Luv It. Their Johnny’s Cash scent is amazing!
Burt’s Bee’s – Anti Blemish Scrub. The nicest thing about this scrub is it doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry like a lot of face washes do.
I have a list of products and brands that I’d still love to try, so this list will be updated as I go.
