Right now, there couldn't be more importance placed on on using sustainable and environmental friendly companies, brands and products, which are (to my delight) becoming so popular. There are so many advocates out there doing their bit not only for us but for the environment too and this months selection from Veauty's online cruelty free, vegan beauty store is bringing me just that.
Here's what I received this month:
Meadowfoam and Sesame, Blackberry & Honeysuckle
I adore Bloomtown Botanicals, do you know why? Because, their products fall into one of many fantastic categories that make me feel all warm and fuzzy, for example (just to name a few):
- Vegan + Cruelty Free
- No Palm Oil
- No Sulphates
- No Parabens
- No Phthalates
Rich in all those lovely anti-oxidants I love, this beautiful, non-greasy oil formula can be used daily or even added to a bath for an extra hit of indulgence - don't mind if I do! All those gorgeous added natural oils like Sweet Almond will absorb easily into the skin making it feel like heaven (which it absolutely does). I avoided skin and body oils for so long, concerned they would add to my already greasy prone skin and this couldn't be further from it's purpose; oils are a fantastic way of helping your skin to maintain it's natural balance, which is what it's all about after all. I should also add that this is a multi-purpose oil and can be used on the hair as a much needed bit of TLC - something I swear by as oils work wonders for my frizzy barnet and it's a really light, delicate texture so don't be worried about it feeling heavy or slimy because it definitely isn't. Oh, and you can use it for massaging, as a gentle makeup remover. Multi-tasking at it's best!
Fruu. Strawberry Creme Colour Balm
With Watermelon, Mango, Coconut & Aloe Vera
A lip balm is an essential, surely? It doesn't matter what time of year it is, where I am or what I am doing, I find a lip balm is something that always stays on you. I say on, I mean quite literally with one in my pockets, bag and car. I have wanted to try Fruu. for sometime now and thanks to Veauty I have the opportunity! The Fruu lip balms come in a range of scents and even colours. I love tinted lip balms as my lips are prone to being dry and chapped, which means no matter how much I scrub and exfoliate them, a lipstick just doesn't look all that great, which is where a lip balm is a fantastic little lip saviour. This particular one is Strawberry Creme and smells like heaven. It's a lovely creamy consistency with a real pop of colour and with added aloe vera and coconut there is no way I can't love this. I've used it so much already and I am just glad I managed to sneak in some photos beforehand, because there's nothing quite like the perfection of a brand new, untouched lippie!
I hope I've tickled your fancy with these two little treasures and don't forget to read my previous Veauty post if you wanted to see what else Veauty has to offer.
