    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.

    Holiday Empties

    So as you know, I like to keep track of my empties, which products I have been using up over the previous weeks/months and what I thought about them. Today I thought it might be cool to talk about just the holiday empties which I acquired. I recently went away to Lanzarote for two weeks with my family and Josh, now that’s a decent amount of time so I did expect that I would be able to finish some products up. Some are a little different to my usual choices, because no one wants to take their most expensive products away with them, in case you have to leave them…

    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.

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…

    December Empties | Blogmas Day 20

    So here we are at the final Empties post of 2017 and there have been a few of them! This is the one where I take photo’s of all my empty product bottles like a weirdo and talk about them to you. You may see some repeat items which only goes to show that I’ve found some really great products this year that I only share with you on here because I love them myself! As they are duplicates I thought I’d list everything but only go into detail about a few, then at the end I’m going to talk about my goals for 2018 in terms of consumption and…

    3 New Brands I’ve Discovered This Year | Blogmas Day 10

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am a creature of habit, I’ve got my beauty and skincare regime down and I rarely alter it or add new items. However this year a few new brands have sneaked into my routine and indeed my blog posts. I thought that for Blogmas day 10 I’d do a roundup of my favourite brands I’ve discovered this year. First up is a haircare brand, for the second half of the year I’ve been loving the Maui Moisture Haircare range. It’s free from parabens, Silicones, sulphates etc etc the list goes on and it’s also vegan! I love the Coconut Milk…
