The best vegan skincare products

Over the past 5 years on this website I've never once mentioned skincare but since it's something I became very passionate about this year, I thought I'd shared my favorite products with you in this post (plus all of them are vegan too :)).

Generally speaking I have a pretty good skin (also I've been on a plant based diet for about 2,5 years now which helps more than anything) and up until the age of 18-19 I never even thought about putting anything on my face other than some occasional face mask from Lush. It all began to change after I came back from Singapore where the humidity was SO high that I found myself coming home with a bunch of whiteheads all over my face. After consulting with a specialist I found out that - like most people - my skin can be put in the dry and normal category but since it's winter now she told me to make sure to take the time out to moisturize it daily (literally something I never even thought about for the past 20 years).
Thankfully, I never really get acne (except for that time of the month lol) but my skin definitely have the tendency to develop whiteheads if I eat even just a little but more than usual of any type of oily food.  So here are the products that I've been using and found efficient over the past few months:

1. Drops of Youth Liquid Peel from The Body Shop - the best exfoliator ever (I usually use this 2-3x a week)
2. Vitamin E Hydrating Toner from The Body Shop - after the exfoliating
3. Vitamin E Aqua Boost Essence Lotion - I wasn't gonna buy this one to be honest because I think it's not super necessary for my skincare routine but somebody got me this as a Christmas present so now I'm stuck with it haha. It's supposed to help your skin absorbing more easily your daily moisture cream so you're meant to apply it after being done taking off your make up.
4. Vitamin E Moisture Cream from The Body Shop - I usually apply this 1,5 hour before putting my make up on and it gives a really good base for the foundation later.
5. Vitamin E Night Cream from The Body Shop - after I'm done taking off my make up right before going to bed.
6. Grease lightning from Lush - the only thing that ever works against pimples for me. Whenever I notice even the slightest sign of a pimple appearing I put this one on right away and it gets rid of the trouble before it even starts almost every time!

Face masks:
7. Mask of Magnaminty from Lush - my all time favorite! It's the most refreshing mask ever but since it dries my skin out so much I prefer to use it only during summer
8. Just to Clarify from Lush - so Lush has this new thing where they make masks out of jelly which is perfect for winter because it gets rid of all things necessary without drying your skin out too much. Plus it smells really nice!
9. The Sacred Truth from Lush - To be honest I didn't really like this mask so much and didn't find it that efficient in terms of cleansing so I'd much rather recommend the Mask of Magnaminty instead of this one.

10. Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub from Lush - I never thought I'd be one of those people who use a lip scrub but it makes all the difference especially during the winter days when your lips tend to get dry more easily.
11. It Started with a Kiss lip balm from Lush - this is my favorite lip balm ever because not only does it make your lips super soft but it also has this cute pink shade which makes it a perfect part of my everyday make up.
12.  Dream Cream from Lush - I've been using this body lotion for about 1,5 year now and it's literally the only thing that helped me to get rid of my eczema last summer (when not even the creams recommended by doctors worked...). Very moisturizing and smells super lovely!
13. Snowman from Lush - So this shower jelly is a seasonal offer from Lush so I'm not sure if it's still in stores. Unfortunately I used it up in about 3 weeks but it made my skin super soft after every shower so no regrets there.
14.. Alverde rice milk based body & hand lotion from DM - This one was a gift set for my birthday about 6 months ago and I totally love it. I only started using it regularly recently though because it is way too thick to apply for warmer weather conditions.

15. Hair custard from Lush - My all time favorite that I've been using for about 2 years now. If your hair also tends to get a frizzy after each wash then it's the perfect product for you because other than helping with that it also smells AMAZING and makes your hair soft and shiny.
16. Coconut oil from The Body Shop - Pretty basic but I purchased this one about 1,5 year ago as well and I still have about the half of the bottle while using it almost everyday so definitely recommending this one!

That's pretty much it for now, I hope it was helpful, let me know if you have any other questions regarding this topic!
Wish you a nice one Xx

French hat - Stradivarius, Bag - Topshop, Boots - Forever21, Sweater - Bershka

This outfit kinda throws me back in time when I was dressing like this for about 2 years straight in 2nd grade of high school haha. Still love it though and couldn't possibly choose something from my wardrobe that screams 'Christmas' more than this look does, so the perfect fit for a December day.
Have a nice one!
