    Cruelty-Free, Vegan and Organic- What does it all mean?

    You might hear the words Cruelty-free, vegan and organic thrown around a lot these days but what do they actually mean? They now adorn plenty of packaging, but do we as consumers really understand the labels? Today I thought I’d unpick what it all means and how to start being more environmentally conscious when buying beauty products.  What does it all mean?  So let’s start with Cruelty-Free. This means a product has not been tested on animals during it’s production. These products are often marked with a leaping bunny symbol meaning they are accredited as 100% cruelty-free.  Next, Vegan. This means a product does not contain any animal products such…

    Summer Skincare Routine

    Skincare routines are nothing new to the blogosphere, I’ve read about a dozen myself just this year. However today I thought I’d throw my current summer skincare routine into the mix, because I love to read about what products work for different skin types. Not every product will suit every person, so I like to hear suggestions from other people who have dry skin. I’m going to discuss which products I use in the morning and which I leave for night time. I recently did an instagram poll asking which you would prefer to see and the result was 50/50- typical. So for a quick bit of background, I have…

    What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

    After a hectic week of Uni deadlines and working, I’m super excited to finally be packing for my holiday! Very soon I’ll be a jetting off for a bit of sun in Lanzarote with Josh and my family. I thought I’d do a little bit of content on what I’ve been packing to take with me, as if you’re nosey like me, you might find it interesting. So I’m starting off with what’s in my travel makeup bag! Usually I try and be as minimal as possible when packing beauty products to take away with me, however this trip will be nearly 2 weeks so I want to make sure…

    Products I’m Trying To Use Up

    I have regularly posted Empties posts for the last year, but you may remember in my most recent one I pledged to try and reduce my use of plastics and buy more ‘naked’ products with zero packaging. Well I’ve stuck to my word and have been using a solid shower gel, shampoo and body scrub so that’s 3 less bottles used! However some products have to be packaged and I still possess quite a few of them. Today I have compiled a list of a few items which I am attempting to finish off before I recycle their packaging. I chose these items for various reasons including the fact that…
