Next Generation Skincare Classics

There are some beauty products that have such a cult following that the brands have dared not tinker with them for decades. They are the products that are considered “classics”, the staple of a beauty regime for thousands (if not millions) of women. Every beauty brand hopes to have just one of their products rise to such infamy but few rarely do. So why on earth would the lucky handful of brands that do have such a product decide to reformulate it? There is only one answer – technology.

I’ve been taking a look back at some of the beauty worlds most popular products and I’ve seen that in the past 2 years many of the skincare products have been reformulated. The reasoning behind it appears to be the technological advances rippling through the beauty industry. New ingredients, better ways of harvesting and preserving ingredients, the desire for more natural/organic ingredients and of course, plain old science can now tell us more about the human body than it ever has before thus making beauty products have a new requirement to perform and prove their results.

Take a stroll with me as we look at the next generation of some of your favourite cult beauty products.  Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
