If you consider yourself a conscientious beauty shopper, then here are three 100% natural, cruelty-free, earth-friendly products that you will just love.
I'm all about saving the planet one step at a time. It's on my mind a lot these days. I don't know about you but I find the constant stream of information and warnings that are thrown at us to be quite confusing. I think they should bring back Captain Planet for kids and simplify the whole 'Save the Planet' process from a young age.
One show that I watched said that pretty much every form of meat and fish is dangerous for us to eat. It left me feeling like all I could eat going forward is organic broccoli and not to trust it unless I grow it myself. I watched another that said I need to go vegan. Seemingly it's the only way to be sure I'm not damaging the planet further and slowly killing myself with contaminated food. Supposedly, we can't even necessarily trust things that say they are organic. I mean how are we supposed to know if we are doing the right thing or helping the global warming situation in any way?
With all this conflicting information it's very confusing for consumers. There are so many areas that we should consider if we are to make a difference to the world around us. We can change our habits regarding things like food, waste, pollution and general consumerism. If you want to make positive changes in just one area - you could make it your beauty regimen. There are some really gorgeous, all-natural beauty products we can use that are mindful of the environment.
It's straightforward enough when it comes to beauty products. Less packaging is good, all natural is good, cruelty free is good and vegan is generally good! So here are three products that you can love and feel guilt free for using them. These particular brands are doing their best not to harm the environment during the production of their products and to use all natural ingredients.
First up is this body butter from all natural skincare range Peachy. It's truly sumptuous. I actually enjoy moisturising (usually the most mundane task in the world) because it smells so divine and absorbs easily. The ingredients are 100% natural and all the products are made by Sinead, the founder of the company, with her own two hands.
Next is Moogoo Rosehip oil. This oil smells like it came straight from a nut! You can tell there are no added perfumes because it smells kind of like an oil you might use in cooking. Not unpleasant but certainly not fragranced. It's a great product for sensitive skin with redness. It's really hydrating and a little goes a long way.
Next up is a handwash which I love because it's Irish. Again it's fragrance-free, paraben free and Sodium Lauryl Sulphate free. It smells really good and it's actually antibacterial so it leaves your hands really clean. It's also a good looking addition to any bathroom.
