The Best Cruelty-Free Haircare Products I’ve Found

The Best Cruelty-Free Haircare Products I’ve Found

In the four years that I have been cruelty-free, I’ve tried a lot of haircare products. At times, it has been challenging. I feel like I’ve had every haircare concern on the planet, from dryness to oiliness, flaking to fallout to split ends. I’ve had some experiments with dye too; in 2017 I decided to add some blonde into my hair, and spent the rest of the year finding the…

The Early Summer Skincare Edit

The Early Summer Skincare Edit

Let’s get glowy šŸŒž I love me a bit of skincare, I really do. There’s nothing like the sweet feeling of slathering your face in a mask, or taking off a long day’s makeup. I tend to try a lot of skincare, but once I find something, it stays in my routine for months, and sometimes years. However, I do seasonal change-ups to make sure my skincare is weather-appropriate and…

Here Are The Cruelty-Free Skincare Essentials You Need If You Don’t Know Where To Start

Here Are The Cruelty-Free Skincare Essentials You Need If You Don’t Know Where To Start

Following my blog post on the products I miss using since going cruelty-free, I’ve had a fair bit of feedback from people asking me to recommend the products I like that they can purchase. Totally fair shout; I definitely want to be celebrating the products I love that are cruelty-free and ten out of ten in my eyes. So I figured it would be great to start with the basics,…

Ten Brands I Wish Were Cruelty-Free

Ten Brands I Wish Were Cruelty-Free

I’ve been cruelty-free for nearly two years now; it all started, as many great things do, from a series of angry YouTube comments on a makeup video I made in 2016. I hadn’t heard of the cruelty-free movement before, so I took to Google to do some research and within the day I decided that I needed to change my purchasing habits. Before that day, the closest I’d come to…

Winter Lipstick Update

Winter Lipstick Update

Hello, my name’s Lucy and I’m a lipstick addict. Give me all the colours, all the textures, all the time, please. I want to try every single one. Winter is difficult for lips, though. They get dry and chapped, sore to the touch and holding all applied product in their harsh crevices. It’s not a good look. But why is it that in winter, the main beauty product that excites…

The Products That Have Saved My Dry Skin This Winter

The Products That Have Saved My Dry Skin This Winter

Winter has officially arrived in London, and with it has come my least favourite annual visitor: excema. Over the past couple of years the condition that led to many Oilatum baths in my childhood has reared itā€™s head once more and seems to be here to stay, much to my frustration. I spend my days uncomfortable in my clothes, having to slather on E45 morning and night to stop me…

Five Things My Mum Taught Me About Beauty

Five Things My Mum Taught Me About Beauty

I’ve been into makeup and skincare since my teenage years. I loved going into Boots and scouring the brightly lit shelves with foundations, mascaras and nail polishes neatly arranged in plastic casing, making mental lists of which product to buy when I got my pocket money. When I couldn’t afford the Dream Matte Mousse or MaxFactor False Lash Effect that I desired, I would scour my parents’ bathroom cabinet for…

Here’s Everything I’ve Got My Eye On This Black Friday

Here’s Everything I’ve Got My Eye On This Black Friday

I’ll be the first to admit that I always forget about Black Friday. Maybe it’s because the past couple of years I haven’t been in a strong enough financial position to go mad, or perhaps it’s due to the odd timing of the event, as Thanksgiving isn’t really a thing here in the UK. However this year I’m determined to pick a couple of things up, so here’s a rundown…
