SKINCARE: my favourite cruelty-free & vegan picks (dry to combo skin)

Happy Saturday! I thought I would bring you guys are very popular, and hopefully helpful post for all you guys who are after some new vegan friendly skincare products. I have dry af skin usually and I feel I have gotten a good routine down to control my dry, dull face. I am sorry a lot of these brands are only really found in Australia and probably New Zealand, but surely you can source these items via online stores!






Swisse - Micellar Water

If I need a quick way to remove my makeup (even waterproof mascara), this micellar water is great. It removes eye makeup super well which is sometimes had to find from "natural" makeup removers. In conclusion: it's a great, affordable makeup remover.

You can find Swisse at Swisse.com, Chemist Warehouse, Priceline and other Pharmacies. 

DermaSukin - Daily Gentle Wash

I've always loved DermaSukin since it came out, and it is a great cleanser for face and body. It doesn't irritate my skin and makes me feel refreshed and clean. 

You can find DermaSukin products at SukinOrganics.com, Chemist Warehouse and other Pharmacies. 

Sukin - Nourishing Chia Seed Oil

As a person with dry skin, facial oils are a great way to hydrate your skin with natural ingredients. Sukin has plenty of different oils to choose from but I love the smell and what this Chia Seed Oil does for my face. I apply it just after I wash my face or after a shower and it really soaks into my skin and it feels soft and supple. 

You can find Sukin Super Greens Range at SukinOrganics.com, Chemist Warehouse, Priceline and other Pharmacies.




Sukin - Super Greens Detoxifying Facial Scrub 

Scrubs are pretty common in a skin routine for anyone, but especially for people with dry skin. This Sukin scrub is not too coarse and includes a nice cream that helps with hydrating.  

You can find Sukin Super Greens Range at SukinOrganics.com, Chemist Warehouse, Priceline and other Pharmacies. 

Lush - Ultrabalm 

Once changing my lifestyle to cruelty-free, and preferably vegan I realised I could no longer use Cortisone for my dry, dermatitis type patches I use to get as it contained Lanolin Oil. So I went looking for a vegan alternative that did a decent job. I came across Ultrabalm at Lush and I couldn't imagine my life without it. I use it on dry spots, my chapped lips, my tattoos, nails... literally anywhere I want moisture and I love it. This tin lasts me so long, I still have a bit left in my old tin, but I realised it was expired and I definitely needed to get a fresh one. 

You can find Lush Ultrabalm on Lush's online website and also in-store. 


Redwin - Sorbolene Moisturiser

I use to be pretty basic with moisturiser, and with one time in my teenage life, I barely even used it because my face was so oily. Then last year in winter, my face got so, so dry. It was really flakey and no matter how many masks and exfoliators I used, or how often I moisturised, the next day my skin was back to being lifeless and rough.

I was told if I got a good moisturiser and put it on my face like a mask, it will fix it right up. And it really worked! Once I used a scrub (Sukins Detoxifying Scrub) and moisturised with this basic sorbolene, my skin was so soft and nice and lasted days. Sorbolene is universal (I even use it to remove a full face of makeup), and it is so cheap and available everywhere.

You can find Redwin Sorbolene at Health365.com.au, Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, Coles and other Pharmacies.
