My challenge for this year was not only to eat vegan but also to buy vegan beauty products. This does not mean that all the beauty products that I am currently using are vegan. I still use beauty products which were bought or given to me in previous years which happened to be just cruelty-free. However, I can confirm that I am following a daily vegan skincare routine for autumn 2018.
Cleansing – The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Facial Soap
Since I discovered the Soap Cafe, I have been pro soap bars. I see them as an environmentally friendly alternative to liquid soap. Also, they are easy to carry when travelling without exceeding the 100ml liquid bottle limit. I can’t understand why people keep preferring liquid soap when soap bars make more sense, to me. I had run out of my last Soap Cafe soap bar and since I happened to be at a The Body Shop blogger event, I thought of trying one of their soap bars. These last few months charcoal in beauty products has been promoted a lot. So I thought I give The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Facial Soap a go.
Toning – DayTox Facial Tonic
I do not usually use toners a lot. However, I have decided to start using it to remove the makeup residue that both the makeup remover and the soap did not manage to cleanse off. I have nothing against this toner. What I found strange is just that it comes in a plastic bottle while my other DayTox products are in glass containers.
Eye care – Handmade Naturals Rose and Shea Eye Cream
I have stuck it in my head that since my work involves a lot of computer work, I need to invest in an eye cream. Since I love their face cream, I thought I try also the eye cream from Handmade Naturals.
Moisturising – Rossi Uvema Salicylic & Tea Tree Face Moisturiser
If you like Handmade Naturals’ face cream, you will like Rossi Uvema. Since my face is oily in Summer but usually gets drier in Winter, I have bought the combination skin version of Rossi Uvema’s face creams. However, I am not sure if my face will be getting dry since I will be spending Winter in Malta and not Germany. We will find out.
Serum – DayTox Hydrating H Serum
If I am not planning to go out, I switch my moisturiser with a serum. Sometimes I also apply it under my moisturiser. However, for indoors only. I have this fear that since a serum is usually oils, exposing my serum covered face in the sun might lead to pigmentation. So I leave serum for night time or when I am sure that I won’t be stepping out.
That is what my daily vegan skincare routine for Autumn 2018 consists of. I do not expect you to use vegan products, so what I would ask you is which products does your daily cruelty-free skincare routine this season consist of?
