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 so so SO excited about this special #VeganManiMonday post because I’m going to be sharing my review & first impressions of my collaboration with vegan nail polish brand, Dimension Nails!!

Vegan Nail Glitter by Dimension Nails

A few months ago, the badass, go-getting, vegan babe and owner of Dimension Nails, Stephanie reached out to me and asked if I wanted to be one of the lucky vegan gals that she handpicked to collaborate on her new line of vegan and cosmetic grade nail glitters!

Of course, I was down! And all I had to do was pick from a selection of color options and then choose a name for my glitter! Everything else was designed, created, and packaged by Stephanie herself.

Dimension Nails’ catchy slogan is Slaying Nails, Not Animals! and so naturally, I wanted to stick with the same theme of slaying and as a testament to how badass and hardworking Stephanie is (seriously, go follow her at @thevegandoll_ to see how much this girl can accomplish in a day!).. I decided to name my vegan nail glitter Rise & Slay!

Rise & Slay – Nail Glitter by Dimension Nails

Rise & Slay is a cosmetic grade, vegan, and cruelty-free glitter that can be used with nail polish or used with creating some beautiful nail art and designs!

Rise & Slay is an ocean blue holographic glitter and they’re $6.50 each.

In this post, I used the glitter with a nail polish base. I’ve never used a loose glitter before on my nails so this is totally a first for me.

I started with applying a clear coat of nail polish on my nail and before it dried, I dipped my nail into the glitter pot, trying my best to cover my entire nail with glitter. I tapped off the excess and then used a clean eyeshadow brush to carefully wipe off the excess glitter around my nails. I finished it off with a clear top coat!

And this is how it turned out:

Rise & Slay Review

The color payoff is absolutely spectacular! I’ve used glitter nail polish in the past and I’ve never came across anything that was as full-coverage as using these loose glitter from Dimension Nails!

I was surprised at how even and full-coverage the glitter stuck to my nails. I used a clear base coat and the glitter covered my entire nail without missing a spot!

I didn’t read the instructions until after (woops!) but it says to use an eyeshadow applicator to rub the glitter onto the nails to create a smooth surface.

Uhh…I didn’t do that and so the texture was a bit rough and scratchy. The second time I used the glitter, I tried rubbing and pressing down the glitter onto my nails and it definitely created a smoother result!

Overall, I am blown away by the quality of these vegan nail glitters from Dimension Nails and the color is just incredibly stunning! ??

They have over 20 nail glitter colors to choose from, so definitely go check them out on Dimension Nails website!Β 

Thank you Dimension Nails and Stephanie for teaming up with ethical elephant on this project!
