Green Beauty: Natural and Organic cruelty-free skincare made in Australia

You are probably familiar with this saying, “you will never regret a workout”. Well, my take on this is “you will never regret investing in skincare” in good skincare that is.

Whether you suffer from dry or sensitive skin, acne, clogged pores or would like to prevent sun damage and ageing, it’s likely that you are using some products to target these concerns and improve your skin. Did you know that skincare are often packed with nasties? Anything that you apply topically eventually makes its way into your bloodstream so you really want to be researching the products that you use. It’s not optional, it’s a must!

My journey to cruelty free beauty

Over a year ago, I vouched to stop buying makeup that was tested on animals. I made a decision to purchase cosmetics more consciously and it also extended to skincare, hair and body products, toothpaste, hand soap, etc.

Cruelty-free makeup

Slowly, I replaced my ’empties’ with cruelty-free or vegan options and went on to discover pretty cool brands along the way.

I revived my love for Lush and even turned it into a semi-addiction, re-explored my Urban Decay and Too Faced collection and tried Tarte, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Charlotte Tilbury makeup for the first time.

Going completely cruelty-free comes with its challenges and sacrifices, but I wouldn’t go back.

THE PRODUCT:

My top 10 favourite perfumes

Is it true that a woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting? And if it is true, what would your signature scent say about you?

Perfumes and colognes are a very private affair, a matter of personal taste and perhaps even personality traits.

There are five categories of fragrances, all comprising scents being defined based on their ‘role’. The top or head notes are perceived immediately after application, but are light and evaporate quickly to make way for the middle/heart notes, the body of the perfume. Finally, we have the base notes that last for hours and bring depth to the perfume. The base notes are usually what attracts me the most in a fragrance, and all my perfumes have a very similar finish.
