Pureology Hydrate Haircare Collection

One question that comes up a lot in the vegan community is if there are any professional haircare brands that are vegan. At first glance you would think it would be an impossible task to find one but I was recently informed by RY that one of L’Oreal’s professional brands, Pureology, is in fact vegan. I thought they must have been smoking something because there was no way I would believe a brand as iconic as Pureology was actually vegan. After checking the trusted resources of Leaping Bunny and PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies I was delighted to find that they are 100% vegan – every single product – cruelty-free to the max. Queue me squealing like a girl and making a shopping list in my head of products I wanted to try.

To begin with I have chosen the Hydrate Shampoo and Condition products as I have been told by many people they are an outstanding example of the Pureology range. Read my review to find out if these products are worth the hype.  Continue Reading

As we slowly head into spring some nights are still feeling like winter for me so the good old central heating is being left on to stop the frostbite. I find central heating so damaging to my skin but I use so much moisturising cream that I am pretty well protected, however I do often forget about my lips. A while ago I was given a tiny little sample of Jane Iredale’s Lip Drink Lip Balm and I came across it in a 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
