5 OF THE BEST CRUELTY FREE BEAUTY AND SKINCARE ITEMS

[This post contains gifted items]

One of my 2020 resolutions was to try and be a bit more sustainable when it comes to my beauty and skincare products. I want to try and make small changes to some of the holy grail products I use to try and be a bit more eco-friendly.

There are so many products available from a variety of brands that can help you to reduce your use of plastic when it comes to beauty and skincare, so today I want to share with you a few of my favourite products.

Makeup remover pads and wipes: 

I have been looking into getting some reusable makeup remover pads* for a while now so when EarthBits kindly got in touch and asked if I'd like to try some, I jumped at the chance.

EarthBits are an eco-friendly local brand based in Huddersfield and stock a wide range of eco-friendly products on their website ranging from feminine hygiene products, to paperless kitchen with everything in between. They fully vet all their suppliers and products and all of the packaging is plastic-free and fully recyclable.

I already use reusable makeup remover cloths which I absolutely love, so I was intrigued to try out the pads with my micellar cleanser and put them to the test. My first impressions are really positive. I think they're a brilliant concept and work just as well as a normal cotton pad. If anything, they're actually much softer on the skin. After using them I tend to wash them with warm water and then reuse a few times before popping them into the wash. I was quite sceptical on how they'd wash as they are white so I wasn't sure if my foundation and fake tan would stain them but so far so good! They also come in the cutest mesh bag which is great for when you're washing them and the packaging is made with recycled brown paper and nontoxic almond-based glue!

Cruelty free makeup and makeup brushes

Along with reusable makeup and beauty tools, there are more and more brands offering vegan and cruelty free makeup and skincare. Some of my favourite makeup brands include Urban Decay (I love their NAKED palettes) and Too Faced (I use their Born This Way foundation and concealer daily!) I also love the BodyShop for cruelty free skincare and one of my holy grail products is the Oils of Life Facial Oil. It smells like a spa and is SO soft on the skin. Check out my full review here.





There are also so many cruelty free makeup brushes available these days. My absolute favourite brand is real techniques and I've been using them for years. I love how soft the brushes are and there are so many different variations and sets to choose from. I would definitely recommend trying them out!


Natural deodorants

I've not actually tried any natural deodorants before but I know they are becoming all the rage and I think they're a great alternative to those that you get on the high street. This deodorant has all organic ingredients, is 100% vegan and plastic and palm oil free.
