I can’t believe it’s already June and it’s like 3 months until I start University and 7 months until Christmas – where does the time go? So in honour of it being the end of May and that June has graced us with her presence; here’s a quick article of my favourite cruelty-free products this month!
1.Anastasia Beverley Hills Dipbrow Pomade
I’m honestly so surprised and thankful that this product has the cruelty-free stamp! I’ve seen this brow gel used by many makeup artists/fanatics on youtube and whilst envying their perfect looking eyebrows, I decided to treat myself and get it. I’m so glad I did as I think it makes my brows look way better and more textured, plus the application is so easy. You do need to separately invest in a brush for using it and I literally just picked up a cheap seventeen angled eye brush from Boots and it applies fabulously. I bought mine on Beauty Bay for £15.00, I’m quite glad about the price as I think you definitely get what you pay for.
2. DIRTY Springwash Showergel from Lush Cosmetics
As mentioned a million times in past blogposts, Lush is one of my all time favourite stores and when I’m not able to stock up on their Winter Limited Editon shower gel which is Snow Fairy, my favourite showergel to invest in, especially during the summer, is Dirty. Now I only got a good whiff of their Dirty fragrance last year as one of my friends wears the body spray from Lush, but I absolutely love it; it’s so minty and almost cooling, so in showergel form it really works wonders on hot days or after exercise, it also has quite a calming side to it’s scent so I love using it in showers before bed too! I paid about £16 for a big bottle of it so it’ll last me a good few months however you can get smaller bottles in Lush for around £4.95!
3. Superdrug Instant Cooling Spray
In regards to my previous blogpost, it’s been absolutely boiling some days recently. Either that or when I go to the gym I end up so humid and hot that it feels rather gross. Back in the days at high school and such, I’d always try to counteract my body reacting to heat and sweating by spraying tons of Impulse body spray on my school uniform as if that would do anything. However all I probably did was make the top layer of my uniform smell kind of fragranced for a few minutes and choke everybody else in the room with the smell of artificial vanilla. One day impulsively on the way to my boyfriends, I remember popping into superdrug for something small like pads or dry shampoo; something I probably forgot to pack and it was a very warm day so I decided to grab superdrug’s own cooling spray. As the majority, if not all, of superdrug’s own; the spray is cruelty-free stamped! I like spraying it on my wrists, inner elbows, forehead and neck if it gets too warm for me and it really does cool me down!
4. Fritz-kola Stevia & Fritz-limo Melon
Unfortunately this ‘fave of the month’ might be a little less obtainable than the others, but I wanted to give it a special mention because at my lovely new job in a certain beloved vegan cafe/shop in Manchester; I am consuming these drinks so much recently if I want a soft drink! V Revolution in Manchester sell a range of fully vegan soft drink brand Fritz! Their drinks also contain all natural ingredients including their caffeine. My favourites are definitely the Fritz-limo melon and when I’m in mood for something that’s a bit more like coca-cola or pepsi, I go for the Fritz-kola stevia! I’m still intrigued to try Fritz-Sugar Free and the plain out Fritz-Kola so I’ll have to fill you all in if those are just as tasty!
So those are my cruelty-free favourites for the month! I hope soon in the future I can swap out more makeup products and such for cruelty-free ones. Have you got any favourite products you discovered in May? Would love to read your comments!
