My skin was always known to be oily. I had to always be careful on what to apply on my face or else it starts feeling dirty and itchy. However, either due to my move to Germany or due to age, my skin is currently only oily in Summer. As soon as the cold season starts, it starts to dry. So now I have two skincare collections, in reality, three. The two main ones are a Summer skincare collection and a Winter skincare collection. The third one is kept in Malta to use during my seasonal visits instead of having to occupy space and carry them back and forth.
My Summer cruelty-free and vegan skincare routine this year consists of:
- The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Facial Soap
Since my skin is oily and mildly acne prone, I thought of joining the charcoal trend by trying this charcoal soap from The Body Shop. I am used to less foaming natural soaps, so I don’t like that it foams more than other natural soap. However, my skin does feel clean after washing my face with this soap.
- Green People Age Defy+ Line Eraser Lip & Eye Serum
After hearing my teacher during one of my makeup lessons that people working with computers need to consider eye creams or any similar products, I made it a point to always include an eye care product. I have no complaints on this Green People eye and lip product. Being a two in one product is a plus.
- Green People Orange Blossom Moisturiser
I was not confident with this product at first as my face felt dirty a few minutes after applying it. It led me to check if it is really for oily skin and it seems that it is. However, I managed to find a way to make it work by using a toner before applying it.
- Handmade Naturals Revitalising Face & Neck Serum
I had bought this product as I had once heard that one can know a person’s age from the neck. Since I bought it I had never used it until a perfume gave me a skin reaction on my neck. Now the skin on my neck is back to normal.
That is mainly my Summer skincare routine. I did not mention the toner used with the Green People moisturiser due to it being a toner which I bought years ago from a brand that is unfortunately no longer cruelty-free.
