On discovering my skincare products weren't cruelty-free, I dreaded trying to find new products for my skin type. I also thought at that time either organic, natural, vegan or cruelty-free products would cost a lot more than what I was used to. The truth is you don't have spend a lot to get a decent set of products to help moisturize and replenish your skin. I don't know about any other ladies out there but as soon as I get in from work i cannot WAIT to take my make up off.
Simply Pure Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover The Simply Pure range at Superdrug is designed specifically for sensitive skin and this is no exception. This is truly a great eye make-up remover, one of the best iv'e used. It doesn't leave any oily residue, it doesn't sting and best of all it does the job. Good for waterproof and normal make-up. At £2.59 (150ml, there are always deals on Superdrug own brands, they are often marked to a third off) .
Simply Pure Micellar Water Another great Superdrug own product, I have used Micellar waters before and much preferred them to cream make-up removers. This one does exactly the same job as my previous brands BUT it is cruelty free and a LOT cheaper. Again at £2.59 (150ml) this is a bargain for a make-up remover. It doesn't sting or dry out my face, as i have sensitive skin this can be a problem with some cleansers & soaps. This however, is a success and I have no future plans to change to another.

White Rabbit Skincare is an independent company i have discovered through joining in on the cruelty-free blogging hour. I currently have their Toning Eye Cream and Tea Tee & Mint Toner and i LOVE them.
I have been searching for an eye cream for quite a while, one that actually works & is good for my skin. This one is perfect, its lovely and thick but soaks in well leaving my under eye fully moisturized and keeping me that step behind the wrinkle clock! At £8 this eye cream is well worth the money, i use it twice a day and have done for the last month and still have oodles left.
Until a year ago i never used a toner but was advised to invest in one to help my oily t-zone area, I used Burts Bees Radiance Toner until recently & wanted to branch out to another brand. This toner is refreshing, leaves my skin squeaky clean & non oily and is well worth the price. My t-zone has stayed oil free from help from this product. Again, at a reasonable price of £7 (100ml) this product is staying a regular for me!
White Rabbit skincare facts:
- Natural Ingredients
- GREAT customer service
Finally my facial moisturizer, i had been using Burts Bees Radiance Day Cream but decided to take the LUSH plunge. This is one of the more expensive products I have, but my is it worth it! I use one of the LUSH facial moisturizers, Vanishing Cream twice a day and it does exactly what it says on the tin. It smells of calming lavender, it quenches my skins thirst but doesn't sit on my skin for ages. This cream is specifically designed for oily skin or oily t-zones so it doesn't overload my skin with unnecessary oils. This product is priced at £18.75 for a 45g pot, it is a little steep for a small-ish pot but a little does go a long way.
Vanishing Cream facts:
- Natural Ingredients
- If you save up 5 pots you get a free face mask-great recycling!
A cruelty-free skincare routine doesn't have to be expensive, there are so many different, great brands out there. Next time you go shopping for your cosmetics, why not swap one product for a cruelty-free one and see how you get on? Guaranteed you won't notice the difference in quality and effectiveness!
