Best vegan beauty products

I’m honoured to have a guest post from one of my favourite vegan bloggers, Chelsey from Like A Vegan. Proving that veganism isn’t all about eating lettuce and wearing Crocs, Chelsey shows us how wonderfully colourful life can be as a vegan. And she is hilarious. No lectures, scare tactics or horrifying images of mutilated animals. Chelsey brings humor, fun and energy to life without cruelty – and now she is doing it here with this awesome post about her favourite vegan beauty products.  Continue Reading

Bioderma Atoderm Nourishing Cream

Dry skin needs a lot of extra TLC in my opinion. If you want smooth, healthy skin you have to fight to keep it hydrated, especially in summer. Internal and external sources of hydration are important to all skin types but extra dry skin can take a little more work to keep the thirst quenched. My dry skin is pretty tough and can get through most conditions relatively unharmed but in summer my legs can get so dry they reveal scales.

I need a body lotion that will hydrate my dry skin but is gentle enough on irritations as well as being highly effective to work fast and help my skin build a stronger barrier. Bioderma’s Atoderm range is specifically designed for dry and very dry skin. Having had success with the body wash, I wanted to try the lotion. Here are my findings.   Continue Reading

That meant that I had to stash away this product until just recently but now having used it for a couple of months I can definitely say the wait was worth it and the scent is just as I had hoped. So how did it perform as a shower gel? Let me tell you!  Continue Reading
