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.

Hourglass Vegan Product List (2019)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Hourglass is a luxury cruelty-free makeup brand available at Sephora, Cult Beauty, and Nordstrom. Hourglass was acquired by Unilever in 2017, so is Hourglass still cruelty-free and vegan?

Is Hourglass Cruelty-Free?

Answer:

Yes. Hourglass is cruelty-free; they do not test their products or ingredients on animals. However it should be noted that Hourglass is owned by a parent company, Unilever, a corporation that is still testing on animals in 2019.

Hourglass animal testing statement (2019)

Is Hourglass Vegan?

Answer:

Hourglass is not an entirely vegan brand (yet!) Some of Hourglass makeup products do contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products, like beeswax, lanolin, and carmine, but Hourglass pledges to be an all-vegan brand by 2020.

Hourglass Vegan Product List (2019)

On Hourglass’ website, they have a helpful page listing all their products that claim to be vegan and do not contain any animal derived ingredients. I’ve taken those products that are currently listed as being vegan and compiled this list so you can use it on-the-go!

Primer

Foundation & Concealer

Powder, Bronzer, Blush, Highlighter

Eyes & Brow

Lips

Skincare

Brushes

    I have a few friends that use Hourglass Vegan products, and they swear by them. I don’t wear makeup but I need that Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss. I’m addicted to shiny lips πŸ™‚

    Hi!
    I love your blog! Do you know if any of the new girl lip stylo colours are vegan?
    Thanks, Laura πŸ™‚

      Hey Laura!
      Hm.. I’m not sure if the Hourglass GIRL lip stylo are vegan or not.
      I can’t seem to find a list of ingredients on Hourglass or Sephora’s website. Since it’s a new product, I think the best option is to just keep an eye on Hourglass’ vegan product page. I know they are fairly good at keeping it updated! =) I’ll also be sure to update this list once I receive confirmation
