    My Cruelty-Free Skincare Routine |AD

    For the last few years I have been working hard to ensure that I have a cruelty-free skincare routine and today I’ll share my favourite products with you. Let’s be real, there are millions of skincare products out there, all promising instant results to reduce wrinkles, eradicate blemishes and give us glowy skin and they all have amazing advertising campaigns to draw us in. Have you ever stopped to think about the impact your skincare products could be having on animals? Unfortunately lots of companies still test their products on animals before they hit the shelf. Today I’m here to help you pick through this minefield and suggest to you…

    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…

    Green People Suncare

    We all know it’s important to stay protected from the sun and that we should wear SPF but how many of us actually do it when we aren’t on holiday? I can honestly hold my hand up and say I’ve never been one to apply an SPF as part of the skin care routine whilst in the UK, unless it’s already incorporated into my moisturiser. My other struggle is that I have found it difficult in the past, to find a cruelty-free sun care range which works for my skin. Enter Green People. When Green People got in touch I was super keen to work with them to help promote…

    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…
