Beauty Finds: The Cleansing Trio

Today I’m sharing my current go to cleansing products. All are cruelty free, vegan and natural ingredients!

My love for Korean skincare products might be waning. Gasp! There are some Aussie products that have caught my eye that I might prefer. However when it comes to cleansing, removing makeup, making my face feel clean Korean products win. All products reviewed are cruelty free, contain no nasty ingredients, vegan, mostly palm oil free as I prefer orangutans (1 ingredient is a derivative). While my skin type is combination to oily all products are aimed for all skin types. It took a few frogs over the past 1.5 years to find this trio. And yes I know. All plastic packaging while I’m wanting to reduce my plastic. Skincare and beauty are one of the areas I’m finding this hardest.

When it comes to cleansing my face, I follow the double cleansing routine. Firstly an oil cleanser to remove excess sebum, sunscreen, silicones and oil based makeup makeup followed by a foam cleanser Continue reading “Beauty Finds: The Cleansing Trio”

My Go To Online Korean Cosmetic Stores

As I do most of my beauty products shopping online I thought I’d share with you my go to online Korean cosmetics sites!

Depending on price and what’s available I use several sites. Select products I can only get at one store, others I can get at quite a few depending on price. Prices vary between the sites so I always check each time. As much as I’m loyal to my favourite products, new brands and products are always popping up so I always check to see what’s new! Few stores Continue reading “My Go To Online Korean Cosmetic Stores”

October November Beauty Finds

I received some great news yesterday. As many of you know long before I became a vegan I’ve always opted for cruelty free beauty products. No animal testing please. Thanks to Leaping Bunny and PETA I’ve managed to stick to this. (Thankful too that my beloved Korean products also don’t!). For a long time it was down to the company’s ethics if they tested or not. A few years ago the EU banned all cosmetic animal testing with various organisations putting pressure on other countries to follow. So many brands I’ve avoid mainly due to China. I found out a few years ago while some companies say they don’t test on animals, if they sell physically in stores in China that means the products have been subjected to 3rd party animal testing as required by Chinese law, for all imported cosmetics. China did ban a few years ago animal testing on domestic products but imported products were still required to be tested. This meant I’ve left a lot of products on the shelf. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Care2 announced yesterday that China will soon allow importation of non animal tested cosmetics!. Which is fantastic news, if and when it happens! Continue reading “October November Beauty Finds”
