August – Cruelty Free Skincare Favourites

Hello! It’s another monthly favourites post and this one of about some cruelty-free skincare products I’ve discovered recently.


For years I eschewed the idea of expanding my limited beauty and skincare collection for several reasons: fear it was tested on animals; a general mistrust of trying to look one’s best; and a basic laziness and absence of interest in make up. But since the Leaping Bunny stuff really took off I find I’m happy to put some time and effort into finding reliable cruelty free products. And today I’ll share a few that I’m loving.

Superdrug Oatmeal Vitamin E Exfoliating Facial Scrub: vitamin E, I’m told, is a vital antioxidant that can help to protect my skin from sun damage. This one uses oatmeal to help exfoliate and it does feel good, like I’m working my skin. It smells nice but the only downside it does take a while to rinse it all off.

Superdrug Tea tree cleanser and toner: this has a nice feel and is minty and refreshing. It certainly brightens up my skin and leaves it feeling smooth and with clean pores.

Superdrug Vitamin E Moisturizing SPF 15 day cream: I’m a big fan of Superdrugs Vitamin E range (can you tell?) and having read a bit about it I now find it has horse chestnut extract, which sounds very unusual and interesting. This is a great facial moisturizer and I can still feel that my skin is soft by the end of the day so it definitely does the job. It has added SPF 15 sun protection as well.
