What The F... @wetnwildbeauty?! πŸ˜’ This is why cruelty-free consumers have trust issues!
Incredibly sadden by the news and confirmation that @wetnwildbeauty products are indeed sold in mainland China where animal testing for cosmetics is required by law πŸ’” I have removed Wet N Wild from our cruelty-free directory lists, but please check out @logicalharmony and @crueltyfreekitty's posts for details about the recent news. A summary simply isn’t enough to explain everything that’s been brought to light and how Wet N Wild was caught lying about selling in China πŸ˜‘

Be gentle with yourself on your journey to living and choosing cruelty-free. Know that you'll probably make mistakes along the way and that's OK. Give yourself permission to learn and grow, and to strive for progress, not perfection. It's not a race or competition to see who can be the best cruelty-free consumer, go at your own pace and always remember what you're doing IS making a difference to animals and the planet! πŸ°πŸŒπŸ’•// πŸ“Έ via @fequalshq

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!

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?
