Beauty Without Cruelty Cosmetics Review

I was so happy to receive these 3 products for review from Beauty Without Cruelty!

They are all really high quality natural cosmetics that have many great features.

If you’ve never heard of Beauty Without Cruelty, you should check them out for the sake of all beauty things cruelty free and vegan.

Made in the UK,  these top quality beauty products redefined natural beauty before anyone else, or so it seems, as they began back in 1963!

Plus, their products are very good; they work well without sacrificing quality or harming animals in their manufacturing process and are completely vegan. You’ll be glad to know they also make their products without a lot of harmful ingredients!

Straight out of the gate, I love this nail polish! It’s a nice orange color which I find to be very suitable for Summer and it’s 3 free – No formaldehyde, toluene or PEG in sight! I know my nails look like crap; I’m just not good at doing them. I’ve done my best for you all, but alas, nail painting is not one of my high points so there.

Hopefully some of my friends read this, take pity and come do my nails so mine don’t have to consistently look like utter .. yep.

Until then, this is the best I can do!

Anyhow, back to this awesome polish. I love the packaging for this polish; it’s so chic and simple. The polish stays on fairly well and looks really flattering and happy. I like it a lot and find the color is nice and vibrant, even when dry. It certainly made me look more put together to have them painted on days when I went without makeup and it added a fun pop of color to my wardrobe of endless black and grey. I know, I need to incorporate more color into my closet, but it’s a process!

Next up is this Cream Concealer Pencil in Fair. This was a favorite for sure! I will certainly be purchasing this one once I run out because it’s so handy to use. It really takes the guesswork out of using concealer which, to be honest, I have always had trouble with. I always end up looking pasty and cakey when I wear most concealers which is why I normally avoid them altogether, but this one is simple, easy to use and blends in very naturally with the skin.

 I used it to highlight my under eyes and also spot conceal some small blemish spots that I had going on with much success. It is really easy to use, covers decently and does not break me out which is a big one for me. A lot of concealers are often so overbearing and heavy that, when I use them, have a tendency to break me out worse when I try to conceal spots so rather than the spot healing, it just aggravates the situation more. This is so light and breathable on my skin while also concealing spots, but it doesn’t break me out further which is a huge bonus for me.

Random fact – apparently this one is made in Germany.

Likely my favorite from the products I was sent, this naturally infused lipstick is a lovely coral color that includes jojoba oil, castor oil, and vitamin E in its formula for highly moisturized and soft looking lips.

It really does hydrate my lips while giving them a nice bright Summer splash of color!

As you can see, the color is a perfect coral tint and it has a tiny bit of shimmer in it, though not too much to be distracting or dramatic. It wears well with day and night looks alike and is a nice change to many conventional lipsticks. This certainly is a cut above those because of the infusion of vitamin E and vegetable oils that work to hydrate, plump and soften the lips while you wear it.

I definitely want to expand my collection of these lipsticks – very flattering and hydrating!

Beauty Wish List for June!

So lately I have just been dying to go shopping for a whole lot of natural and organic beauty products.

I have seen so many beautiful brands online whose products I am just aching to get my hands on!

Here are some of the awesome products that have caught my eye so far this month!

Konjac Sponges – French Green Clay for Normal/Oily Types

I am pretty sure this one is old news, but I have just recently heard about it myself and now I am just dying to try this funky little beauty product!

If you’re a newb like me, konjac sponges are naturally made from the konjac potato, a potato that is very dense in water and vitamins and minerals.

Japanese women have been using these potatoes in their beauty regimen for over a century!

Now available commercially, various kinds of sponges are available and formulated with other natural ingredients to suit various skin types.

They are totally 100% natural, biodegradable, pH balanced and very affordable.

I love oddball ideas for beauty such as this!

Has anyone tried this thing?

It seems like so much fun!
