In my previous post I have written about my decision that I wish to become cruelty free. I am starting with my skin care as I think it is going to be the one, which I am using cruelty free products the most and will be the most easiest to adapt. I try to avoid parabens for a long time.
firstly I have examined my current skin care products in my bathroom.
- Body cream: The Body Shop: Body Butter is my old time fav, specially in the shea butter version:) Yves Rocher: Body Lotion is a bit lighter, honestly I have never purchased them, always received as a gift, Lemon Brasil a bit much but still all right for me, rally gives the energizing illusion.
- Leg cream: Balea:Totes Meer with Death sea salt and olive oil and Herbaria: Calendula cream– I stand a way too much, which is not health at all so I tend to use more care of my feet.
- Handcream: L’Occatine handcream– Pieere Hermé:Pamplemousse Rhubarbe (Limited edition)- believe it or not this expensive handcream i not cruelty free so I should look for something else- I do have only a tiny bit in it.
- Products, which I have threw away: Dove:DermaSpa – firstly it is not cruelty free, secondly I cannot stand its smell, so that is why I only tried 3-4 times only and do not gives a nice tan at all.
- Face Cleaner: Bioderma- Sébium Gel Moussant: Even this foam is for oil skin, it is also works well on my combination skin, hypoallergenic, cruelty and parabens free and relatively cheap.
- Make up remover: Bioderma:Sensibio H2O micellar water is a cult fav. I have written about it Best of Pharmacy My fav beauty product of 2017
- Day cream: The Body Shop: Vitamine E (Normal/Combination Skin): The advanced new formula of the Vitmine E and I love it even better, it is vegan, without mineral oil and parafin gel moisturizer. Evian:Brumisateur: mineral water for touch up and moisture during the day.
- Night cream: The Body Shop: Tea Tree Night mask, this line for oil skin, so I do use it in a really tiny amount at the night, really nicely clearing.
- Eye cream: The Body Shop: Drops of Youth a gel based eye mask, I lot to use this magnetic applicator with it.
- Serum: L’occatine: Comforting Face Oil– this expensive serum is not cruelty free why? I still have a lot in it, so might will give away, not bad but I might turn back to Khielh’s oil for 1-2 times a week use.
- Lipscrub: was an H&M one originally, but now I use a DIY in this jar with brown sugar and coconut oil mixed together.
- Exfoliating: Geek&Gorgeous: Calm down Hungarian beauty products
- Mask: I do not have an exact mask now, but looking for a deep cleaning clay mask. The Body Shop Himalaya Clay mask would be cool, but I have to think about due to the price tag. I do have to make some research on Himalaya Herbals, because their meen mask just amazing, even thought I do not know whether they are cruelty free.
+ Pupa Mask tested: It is a Black peel-off pore perfecting mask, which written “the deep cleansing action of Bamboo charcoal helps to remove blackheads, free clogged pores from impurities and absorb excess sebum.” OMG this is a really big no, it does nothing with pores, but my nose feels heart, thankfully I only tried it on it… no way to use it once more. I think I will go back to a deep cleaning clay mask!
