It’s time for another round of my cruelty-free beauty empties! I am sharing makeup/beauty-related products I’ve used up entirely and my thoughts on them. I like to do these posts regularly to share my hits and misses when it comes to beauty, self-care and makeup. Spoiler: I liked most of the products this round.
Jojoba oil: I have been using this on my face, neck and stomach lately and I liked it more than using lotion or creams. It’s a lot more affordable, too. You can also add a couple drops to your moisturizer.
It Cosmetics Secret Sauce: I received a small size as part of a gift set for Christmas. I liked that this was not too heavy or greasy and it left my face feeling moisturized and soft. I am not sure I would purchase it again, though. Time will tell!
Bath and Body Works Eucalyptus Shower Steamer*: This was part of my birthday gift during a stop to get candles, and Graham suggested I try it out. I don’t think it’s worth the nearly $6. It is nice for the shower to smell like eucalyptus, but I expected more steam — or something. The fragrance wasn’t as intense as I thought it would be, and it didn’t last that long. I would not buy this again. *This is not cruelty-free.
Flower Beauty Light Illusion Liquid Foundation: I bought this on a whim because I was looking for the LA Girl foundation and couldn’t find it. The packaging drew me in. At first I didn’t enjoy the glowiness on my face but after a while I came to like it. This is a foundation with about medium, buildable coverage for me and I would buy again.
Not Your Mother’s Naturals Blue Sea Kale & Coconut Water Butter Masque: I confess that I thought I was trying a new face mask when I purchased this. I discovered it was a hair mask, though, which I was not mad about. It left my hair so smooth, shiny and healthy-feeling. I would buy this again to give my hair a pick-me-up every once in a while.
Thayers Natural Remedies Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol Free Toner: This is the only toner I use and the rose petal scent is the best one! I have also liked the lavender toner. It’s gentle and cruelty-free.
Note: If your goal is to be cruelty-free it’s important to do your own research to figure out which brands don’t test on animals. I was under the impression that certain brands were cruelty-free in the past but that wasn’t the case.
