In terms of blogging about beauty products, from now on I will only ever talk about products that are cruelty free rather than those tested on animals. This not only means I’m limited to what I blog about but also that I often have to omit products from posts however much I love them. Hopefully in the not too distant future, my entire makeup collection will be cruelty free but for now, here are five products that I often forget to shout about yet are a core part of my daily routine.
Lush Rub Rub Rub
I’ve been using Rub Rub Rub for quite a while now and I haven’t found an exfoliator quite as coarse, with such a great smell and that is also suitable for your hair! It’s great for adding volume to thin hair although it can be drying so I recommend pairing it with a thick, moisturising conditioner.
Coconut Oil is something which I’ve wanted to blog about but realised that my Bloglovin’ feed was already fully saturated with posts about. It’s great for your hair, skin, nails, teeth and even for cooking with. I used mine as an overnight moisture mask for my hair, it’s been growing really fast since I started using it.
MUA Luxe Lip Lacquers
I was so pleased to find that MUA doesn’t test on animals because I’ve got quite a few of these lip lacquers and I’d definitely want to repurchase them when I run out. They offer a bold, matte lip colour without drying out and they literally last all day. They’re also at least a third of the price of similar products from other brands.
Barry M Diamond Glitter
Diamond Glitter makes me feel like a beautiful glittery princess on top of any colour, especially pastels. I must have repurchased this a handful of times now, it’s the only glitter I can deal with removing!
The Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask
This is such a winter favourite of mine! Ditch the fruity, cooling masks from the summer and grab one of these warming bad boys. The Body Shop is always a go to for quality products at reasonable prices and their Warming Mineral Mask does not disappoint. It’s super cleansing and oil-absorbing and at £11 a entire bottle (for several uses) it’s a steal.
