Cruelty-free skincare – The Hero Project

The Hero Project is a skincare brand that I’ve only just discovered. Of course, I’ve heard a lot of murmurings about this collection from the blogosphere but I’ve never tried it for myself until this month. I’ve been testing out the Glow Drops and Hyasoft moisturiser so I wanted to share a quick review of these […]

Cruelty-free eyebrows + the Little Book of Cruelty-Free

I’ve always had trouble finding products to suit my eyebrows, cruelty-free or otherwise. In fact, I’ve never found a match before. The thing is that my eyebrows are SO blonde that any of the products designed for blonde eyebrows tend to be too warm. Yes, orange eyebrows have been my destiny for many years and […]

Cruelty-free mascaras – which is the best budget brand?

I’ve really struggled to find a cruelty-free replacement for my mascara. Considering that I have some very blonde eyelashes under all the layers of black goop, you can probably tell why mascara is my desert-island beauty product. It’s literally the only item of make-up that I can’t do without. If I happen to pop out without […]

Cruelty-free Laundry

In my quest to live a cruelty-free life, there was one thing that I hadn’t really thought about: Laundry. When you think about cruelty-free, you tend to think about make-up, haircare, lotions and potions and all kinds of beauty products.

What’s in my cruelty-free make-up bag?

Earlier this year I made the switch over to living a cruelty-free life. I’ve been gradually replacing all my products with their non-animal-tested counterparts over recent months and I’ve finally got to the stage where my make-up bag is entirely cruelty-free. I didn’t want to waste the products that I’d bought previously so I’ve been using […]

Cruelty-free summer cleaning hacks

In the run up to the summer holidays is when I start to notice what needs doing around the house. I realise that spring has passed me by in a whirlwind of work, and with it the notion of ‘spring cleaning’ has wafted off into the distance. Those windows never did get cleaned and that […]

Cruelty-free products I already use…

Last month I wrote about the reasons why I’ve recently made the switch to living a cruelty-free life. I’ve since written about homemade beauty as an alternative to bought products and the animal-friendly products I used to prepare for the UK Blog Awards. Today I’m looking at products that I already use and the cosmetics I’m currently […]

Considering a career in the beauty industry?

You may have spotted that I’ve recently developed more of an interest in the beauty industry. It’s not that I wasn’t interested at all in the past, I just hadn’t spent that long thinking about it or researching it. Since deciding to go cruelty-free (read my blog post about what kick-started this change) I’ve spent […]

Living a cruelty-free life

I want my life to be cruelty-free. This is something that has been important to me for a while and I’d love to share my passion for the issue with you today. I’m actually rather embarrassed to admit that for all the years of my life leading up to this decision I hadn’t really ever considered it. I […]
