‘Veganuary’ is here – and there’s never been a greater need to feel healthy (and also, totally pampered). We need affordable and guilt-free, ethical beauty products we can truly enjoy. Yet again, beauty brands we adore have come to our rescue. Read on to find the very best vegan beauty items. Having passed the test on affordability, ethics and incredible results – all you need to do is choose, buy, indulge…and relax!
1.Glossier Soothing Face Mist, £13 (95ml), www.glossier.co.uk
Don’t let pesky face masks get the better of your complexion. Glossier’s Soothing Face Mist allows you to refresh, rehydrate and soothe your skin. The vegan formula contains aloe and rosewater (two skin-loving ingredients). You can opt for a hands-free spritz – or should you need extra TLC, spritz and then apply your serum and moisturiser. This will provide an extra layer of locked-in hydration. Although Glossier is moving towards being totally vegan, there are few products awaiting transition (of which include beeswax or lanolin). Bear this in mind when shopping for vegan products.
2.The Hair Boss The Scalp Scrub, £7.99 (150ml), www.thehairboss.co.uk
A proper detox means from head to toe – so let’s begin with the scalp. The Hair Boss, The Scalp Scrub is nothing short of incredible. Affordable, vegan and truly effective, the treatment will tackle scalp concerns such as dandruff, revitalise your head and encourage those luscious locks to grow!
