Lush Cosmetics Campaign Cruelty Free Kisses
Did you know that this Saturday, 6 July 2013 is International Kissing Day? Lots of cosmetic brands have arranged different ways to celebrate but one brand in particular has definitely won the campaign rounds in my eyes. Lush Cosmetics is all about cruelty-free kisses this International Kissing Day and they are celebrating with an official Guinness World Record attempt. Oh and this isn’t just for Australia, this is global!

So what do Lush Cosmetics have planned? Listen to this. All of their Lush stores (worldwide) will be asking their customers to pucker up and support their attempt to set the new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title of the most lip prints collected in 12 consecutive hours. The current record of 22,174 lipstick prints collected in 12 hours is set by Oriflame Slovakia at 89 locations throughout Slovakia on 14 September 2010.

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
