Etsy Shop Spotlight -The Beekeeper Shop

DSC_6023If you weren’t already aware, Etsy is a fantastic place to shop for cruelty free products. In my experience the vast majority of products have been hand made by small independent businesses. If you’re into finding unique and indie beauty products, Etsy is the place to go! A business that I have recently discovered and have been enjoying is the The Beekeeper Shop. The Beekeeper Shop sells natural and organic soaps, salves and skin care and are based in Greece. Continue reading “Etsy Shop Spotlight -The Beekeeper Shop”

Cruelty Free Brand Updates

CF Brand Updates2As a cruelty free consumer I am constantly emailing brands to find out about their animal testing status. I decided that it would be more helpful for everyone if I shared the responses I get rather than just adding brands to my cruelty free or avoid list. Below are the recent responses that I’ve had from brands regarding their animal testing policies. Continue reading “Cruelty Free Brand Updates”

A Natural Deodorant That Works!

DSC_5863If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you may have seen me talking about my quest for a natural deodorant that actually works. I’ve been desperate to give up the easily accessible anti perspirant deodorants found in supermarkets and on the high street since learning of the unhealthy ingredients like aluminum that can be found in them. Apparently our bodies can absorb up to 60% of what we put on our skin. If you look closely at some of the ingredients in your existing products, this is pretty concerning. Those accessible anti perspirants I just mentioned are particularly guilty of this. So, I picked up a few samples by The Natural Deodorant Company and I’d like to share my thoughts on them with you today! Continue reading “A Natural Deodorant That Works!”

Beauty
MOA Green Balm
This lovely little pot of goodness is an all natural multi purpose balm that can be used to heal or as a cleansing balm. I’m enjoying using this as a cleansing balm in the evening when my skin feels dry and needs a little help. It leaves my skin feeling plumped, smooth and nourished. Ty has been using this on his skin when it gets sore and sensitive after shaving and it seems to be helping! Continue reading “Current Favourites”

But where there’s a will there’s a way and I’ll go into further detail of how I got these products at the end of this post. For now, let’s jump right into the reviews!

A Pale Girls Guide to Glowing Skin

DSC_5887In the last few months I’ve come to learn about highlighters and have started to experiment with products in the search for beautiful glowing skin. It can be difficult to find a good highlighter for pale skin that doesn’t show up too dark and obvious on the skin. I’ve quickly learnt that for my light skin tone a white/pearly based highlight is my favourite. Below I will share with you the three products that I’ve been using recently to illuminate my skin.
