A few years ago, I started the process of replacing my beauty products with clean alternatives. It's actually a lot harder than it sounds.
I live a vegan, plant-based lifestyle, but I'm definitely not perfect. I'll admit, my makeup bag isn't 100 per cent clean because I just haven't found products that are as good as my current favourites... yet.
But for skin care, cruelty-free and vegan are non-negotiables. Even better if they're certified organic, too. I also want skincare products that work and can deliver results, not jars full of good vibes and empty promises.
Slowly but surely, I've been able to find clean skincare replacements for products in my routine. Here are three my skin and I are loving right now.
1. Salt by Hendrix Aurora Face Crème.
A moisturiser that's clean, cruelty-free, vegan and free from parabens and mineral oil.
Suitable for all skin types and contains ingredients like niacinamide (vitamin B3), squalane, mountain pepper leaf, finger lime, green coffee bean and hyaluronic acid.
Lightweight yet nourishing texture with a matte finish.
Can be used as a day moisturiser or night moisturiser.
Why it's so damn good:
You can’t look at this iridescent pink packaging and not think of a unicorn. But unlike the mythical creature, SALT BY HENDRIX Aurora Face Crème is real. The lightweight but nourishing texture absorbs quickly into my skin and leaves it feeling plump, glowy and hydrated.
The matte finish is perfect for wearing under makeup and sunscreen - when I've been working on set, makeup artists haven't seen fit to wipe it off. It's the ultimate hybrid of a moisturiser and primer, and my wallet likes that I can use it day and night. And it's just really pretty.
