A couple of vegan and clean skincare goodies I got from my first order from @thedetoxmarketcanada! 🌿✨ My skin has changed so much in just the past year alone. I went from very oily skin to acne-prone to eczema flare-ups and now surface dryness πŸ˜” So lately, I've been looking into the ingredients of all my skincare products and consciously trying to make an effort to buy clean, non-toxic, and organic products.  This is my second bottle of @oseamalibu's Blemish Balm, it's an amazing lightweight moisturizer that has really helped clear up my skin without drying it out or trigger my eczema. 🌸 I also wanted to try their Atmosphere Protection Cream which claims to hydrate and help provide barrier protection against visible damage caused by environmental stressors such as dry climates, wind and air pollution. 🌍 I’d love to know, what are some non-toxic & vegan skincare products/brands are you currently loving or would recommend?? πŸ’•

My lips are instantly and intensely hydrated thanks to @nclabeauty’s [NEW] 100% Natural & Vegan Lip Balm! πŸ’‹ They have 8 flavors to choose from including Red Velvet, Almond Cookies, Marshmallow, and Watermelon!! πŸ‰ πŸ‰ πŸ‰  This watermelon Balm Babe smells and tastes like watermelon candy! Formulated with shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter, and coconut oil.
I love how light and moisturized this lip balm feels and I especially love how it doesn't leave that waxy feeling behind πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Most lip balms on the market contain beeswax, lanolin, or honey, making them NOT vegan. And then there are some other brands that are NOT cruelty-free including Nivea, Chapstick, EOS*, Blistex, Aquaphor, and Vaseline.
*Note: EOS is sold in-stores in China but they claim that since they manufacture their products in China, they do not need to test on animals as required by law. However, EOS' products are still at risk of POST-market animal testing where Chinese officials will pull products off from store shelves and test them on animals, this is often done without the company's knowledge or consent. So at this time, we do not feel comfortable classifying any beauty brand selling their products in-stores in China to be "cruelty-free" to our standards.

I’m Saying #ByeByeAcne, Thanks to Nolaskinsentials’ Skincare!

This post may contain affiliate links.

It’s been awhile since an entire cruelty-free and vegan skincare range has impressed me but that all changed when I started incorporating Nolaskinsentials‘ facial cleanser, toner, and night creme into my skincare routine!

I’ve been using Nolaskinsentials for the past month and my skin has been responding so well to this all-natural & plant-based skincare line that I’ve already started noticing my skin to be clearer, brighter, and I have had fewer breakouts! It is truly magnificent to see so many companies focusing on being plant-based. You should click here to view some of the options available.

OK, before I get ahead of myself.. here are some deets about Nolaskinsentials!

Nolaskinsentials Vegan Skincare Review

I was kindly sent some of Nolaskinsential vegan skincare products to try. I filled out a short questionnaire asking about my skin type and if I had any allergies. My skin type is oily, acne-prone and my primary skin care concern is that I have dark spots or hyper pigmentation from my acne scars.

Clarifying Face Wash – Nolaskinsentials ($18)

This Clarifying Face Wash by Nolaskinsentials is a foam cleanser and does such a great job of cleansing and washing all the dirt and grime off my face. I use it in the morning and at night. I like to use an oil cleanser at night to take off my makeup but then I would follow-up with this foam cleanser to get a really deep cleanse.

Lavendula Toner – Nolaskinsentials ($16)

Nolaskinsentials’ Lavendula Toner claims to help sooth and balance the PH of our skin. I use this toner right after I cleanse my face with their clarifying face wash. It does sting a little on some areas of my face but very minimal and tolerable. It has a slight lavender and citrus smell to it but doesn’t linger.

This instantly helps to restore moisture back into my skin after I’ve washed it. I also love how this is packaged in a glass bottle too!

Gylcolic Night Creme – Nolaskinsentials ($17)

OK, this is the game-changer right here! Nolaskinsentials’ Glycolic Night Creme is one of the best night creams I’ve ever used! It is formulated with 10% glycolic acid. The claims of using this glycolic night creme are: decreased blackheads, brightened skin, increasingly even skin texture and cleaner pores free of excess sebum, dirt and bacteria. Good for all skin types.

After a month of consistently using this night cream, I’ve seen all the benefits that it claims to do. I’ve had fewer breakouts (even during the time of the month too!), my skin texture is a lot smoother and even, my dark spots and acne scars are brighter and lighter in color, and the blackheads around my nose are not as noticeable.

It’s safe to say that I LOVE THIS CREAM! You only need a little amount to cover your entire face, it does leave my face feeling a little oily so it’s perfect to use at night.

Final Words on Nolaskinsentials

I really enjoyed using Nolaskinsentials’ face cleanser, toner, and night cream. I definitely think my skin has been clearing up because I’ve been using all three skincare products from Nolaskinsentials but finding a cream that helps with both my acne and hyperpigmentation has always been a struggle for me which is why I’m SHOOK by the results and effectiveness of their glycolic night cream. As someone who has struggled with acne for a very long time, from trying out teenager acne treatment solutions to being able to identify what product work best for my skin just by checking the ingredients, I feel like I have come a very long way when it comes to skincare. Dealing with acne shouldn’t be embarassing, as so many people around the world go through the same thing. We’re all in this together. *Cue the High School Musical song*. It is important to remember that there is always a solution, which comes with time.

I’d love to know, What have you recently used that has completely changed up your skincare routine?
