As more and more people are opting for vegan and plant based foods, the want for a similar option in beauty, makeup and skincare is also increasing. There are some amazing brands on the market, some more well known than others, but the one thing that they all have in common is that they are all suitable for vegans and a vegan lifestyle.
Purifying Facial Mask, £21.40 MAHARISHI AYURVEDA www.maharishi.co.uk
This white, creamy face mask is made with pure herbal extracts and natural ingredients. It has an anti-blemish formula, which is perfect for oily, impure and acne prone skin. Ideally this product would be used a couple of times a week for the best results. It should be applied generously and left on the skin for a few minutes before rinsing with warm water.
The purifying mask comes in a 100ml bottle with an easy to use pump. The packaging is beautiful and really elegant with a Middle Eastern feel to it. Not only is this a great, vegan, skincare product but it would also look lovely on display in any bathroom.
Purifying Exfoliating Facial Polish, £13.99 (RRP) URBAN VEDA at Boots from 17th of January 2018
Daily Purifying Facial Wash, £12.99 (RRP) URBAN VEDA at Boots from 17th January 2018
Urban Veda is a completely natural, vegan-based skincare brand that provides a huge variety in products for any skin type. Both the facial polish and facial wash contain Ayurvedic Neem infused with wild mint, eucalyptus and witch hazel to detoxify congested skin. They are from a range that is pore refining, mattifying and are ideal for oil-prone skin.
This facial wash is naturally formulated to clear toxins and treat blackheads. It is designed to minimise pores and its anti-oxidant rich ingredients help promote a clear complexion. The facial polish contains a natural pumice to not only exfoliate but to also remove impurities and treat blackheads. It also contains collagen-boosting arjuna to tighten pores and leave skin hydrated.
Apply each of the product to a wet face and with the finger tips gently rub into the skin in a circular motion and rinse with cold water to tighten pores.
The facial polish comes in a 125ml tube and the facial wash comes in a 150ml tube. The lovely, olive green packaging of the Urban Veda Purifying range is so beautiful and these matte tubes look and feel very spa like. The plant like embellishments along the side of the tube provides a very natural, vegan vibe.
Sail With a Kiss Lip Matte in Strawberry Sizzle, £12.00 MOREISA at Modestrove
Not only has the demand for vegan skincare products increased, but a want for natural and vegan make up products is also increasing. Moreisa is a beautiful brand that provides high quality vegan makeup. This Lip Matte comes in a lip-gloss style casing with a clear case and a doe-foot applicator, however it acts much more like a lipstick. With a lovely thick and luxurious consistency it can be easily applied to the lips. Due to the natural oils in the formula it feels very hydrating on the lips, yet it is still very pigmented and has amazing longevity.
The shade Strawberry Sizzle is the perfect ‘my lips but better’ shade that can be worn daily. It is a brilliant compromise of a daily lip product that can be worn casually, but would also look very glam when applied. It contains olive, sunflower, coconut and argan oil.
I would really recommend these products and brands if you were looking to introduce more vegan-based products into your beauty regime.
