Since my last recap on the products I switched to, I’ve once again switched several products – some to cruelty-free ones and some just weren’t working well enough for me. Here is the updated list of products I use. The ones with a heart icon () are of cruelty-free brands.
Face Soap: LUSH Fresh Farmacy Cleansing Bar
Face Scrub: LUSH Angels on Bare Skin Scrub
Eye Makeup Remover: Mary Kay Eye Makeup Remover
Toner: LUSH Breath of Fresh Air Toner
Zit Zapper: Plain ol’ tea tree oil
Face Lotion: LUSH Full of Grace Solid Moisturizer
BB Cream: NYX BB Cream (Nude)
Concealer: NYX Concealer Wand (Porcelain)
Pressed Powder (summer): NYX #NOFILTER Finishing Powder (Alabaster)
Pressed Powder (other seasons): Physicans Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls
Bronzer: Marcelle Monochromatic Bronzer
Blush: Joe Fresh Blush (Pink)
Eyebrow Pencil: Marcelle Accent Eyebrow Crayon (Blondine)
Mascara: Almay One Coat Get Up and Grow Mascara (Blackest Black)
As you can see, I’ve replaced a lot. I now only have one product that isn’t cruelty-free, yay! Still having a hard time finding a eye makeup remover as good as Mary Kay’s. As for the face products, I’ve switched from Body Shop to LUSH. Body Shop is actually really good, just not quite good enough for my extremely sensitive and dry skin. Ever since I switched to LUSH, my face has improved tremendously! Less acne and redness, hopefully in a few weeks I can go makeup-free most days!!
I’m attempting to reduce waste: buying bars when possible and I will be making my own reusable facial rounds. Expect a post on how to make them soon!
