If youโ€™re new to vegan beauty or makeup, I highly recommend giving a seasonal subscription service, like @vegancuts Makeup Box a try! ๐Ÿ’„๐ŸŒปโœจ
.
Every 3 months, youโ€™ll receive a box full of vegan makeup delivered right to your doorstep ๐Ÿ“ฆ
.
Reasons to subscribe to #VegancutsMakeupBox:
.
๐ŸŒผ you get to experiment and try new vegan products and brands!
๐ŸŒผ itโ€™s cheaper than buying each product on their own โ€” you get full-size products (not dinky samples), usually over $100+ in value but you only pay $37-$55. The price depends on where itโ€™s being shipped to (US, Canada, or International) and the length of the subscription.
๐ŸŒผ in addition to all of the products being cruelty-free and vegan, theyโ€™re also natural and non-toxic.
๐ŸŒผ you get to customize the box and pick colors that suit you best!
๐ŸŒผ itโ€™s a seasonal subscription so youโ€™ll be sent products that go with the change in season and weather.
๐ŸŒผ do good while looking good โ€” partial proceeds from each Vegancuts Spring Makeup Box goes towards Wildlife Victoria rescue in Australia to help animals affected by the horrific bush fires.

Please read till the end ๐ŸŒฟ I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials ๐Ÿงฝ They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans โญ๏ธ They were also made in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. ๐ŸŒฑ This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! ๐Ÿ˜” Making them actually NOT compostable.
.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
.
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒป What eco-friendly or plastic-free sponges do u recommend?

Please read till the end...

Some grocery stores have temporarily banned the use of reusable bags fear of the potential risk of further spreading the virus. Instead, stores will be handing out plastic bags to customers, free of charge.
.
โœง Totally understandable given our current situation, so this is a great time to make sure all of our reusable bags are washed and if needed, repaired ๐ŸŒฟ
.
โœง แด‡แด„แด-แด›ษชแด˜: For bigger and bulkier items, I always like to use boxes (the grocery stores always have these on hand and they're totally free!) and when I forget to bring my reusable bags, I try to limit the number of items I buy to however many I can carry in my hands and out the store.
.
โœง Buying produce (like leafy greens ๐Ÿฅฌ) without a bag is another story... Iโ€™d love to know, do you have any tips or tricks for reducing our plastic consumption while buying produce during these times?

Cruelty-Free Brands at Ulta

This post may contain affiliate links.

Shopping at Ulta but wondering which brands are cruelty-free and not tested on animals? Well, youโ€™ve come to the right place because I went through Ultaโ€™s entire brand directory list of over 500+ brands and did the research to find out which brands are cruelty-free or not!

In the list below, youโ€™ll be able to figure out which brands, that are available at Ulta, test or do not test on animals. To keep things simple, Iโ€™ve noted each brand accordingly:

This brand is cruelty-free!

This brand is cruelty-free!; not tested on animals (may or may not be vegan)

This brand is cruelty-free!

This brand is cruelty-free but owned by a parent company that test on animals

This brand is not cruelty-free

This brand is not cruelty-free; tested on animals, company name is crossed out to make it clear this brand is not cruelty-free.

I received a response from this brand but am not 100% satisfied with the information provided to me to claim if theyโ€™re cruelty-free or not

100% Vegan – This brand only offers vegan products; no animal-derived ingredients or by-products

Donโ€™t see a brand listed here? It might be because Iโ€™m still waiting to hear back from them! Check the list at the very bottom of this post to see if the brand youโ€™re looking for is on my pending list.
