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.

Perfect Nails with *hype’s 3-Step Collection | Vegan Mani Monday

This week, I’m trying out aΒ Leaping Bunny certified nail polish brand called *hype. They are also 100% vegan and all of their nail polish and treatments are free of 5 potentially harmful ingredients: Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Camphor, and Formaldehyde Resin.

The one thing that really piqued by interest in trying out *hype nail polish is they claim their formula is made from up to 85% plant-based ingredients and derived from potatoes and corn!

I know, I had to read that twice to believe it!

They have a beautiful selection of over 40+ vegan nail polish colors, as well as, some nail treatments, top and base coats that are all 5-free and vegan! You can purchase *hype nails on their website or on Amazon.

*hype Perfect Nails Collection

They also have nail set collections that include a range of 4-6 of their nail polish or a mix of nail polish + treatments. I’m trying out their 3-Step Perfect Nails Collection.

Step 1: *Hype Nail Growth Booster

Claims: “A cocktail of seaweed extract, marine minerals and silicium promotes maximum nail growth and fortifies nail’s keratin to resist splitting, cracking and tearing.  Strengthens weak nails naturally.”

This growth booster goes on glossy and dries down to a semi-gloss. If you’re using this as a treatment, apply 2 coats on bare nails twice a week.

However I’m using it as a base coat so I applied just one coat. I am loving the BIG BRUSH, just one stroke is all I need!

Step 2: *Hype Vegan Nail Polish in Mint

Claims: “Banish those boring enamels and rejuvenate your manicure with this refreshingly cool sea-foam green.”

The Perfect Nails Collection by *hype comes with two nail polish colors, Mint 21 and Raspberry 05. This week, I wanted to try Mint 21 which is exactly how they described it, a cool sea-foam green. This color reminds me of the signature Tiffany Blue color! The polish applies nicely, this is with two coats.

I wasn’t sure about the BIG BRUSH at first, because I have really small nails so I was concerned that the bigger brush was going to be difficult to control.

The brush is actually tapered in the middle instead of being a flat brush so this made it really easy to apply the polish on my nails while giving it a very even and uniform finish. I’m actually digging the big brush after all!

Here’s a comparison of just how big the brush is on *hype’s nail polish.

I did however find that the nail polish takes a long time to dry. At first, I thought it was the top coat but even when I used a quick drying top coat, it did dry faster but not nearly as fast as other polishes.

Step 3: *Hype Vegan Top Coat

Claims: “Certified 83% naturally sourced ingredients. Provides nails with a tough armor which protects the enamel from chipping. Gives nails a brilliant, healthy shine.”

*hype’s top coat leaves your nails with a beautiful shine. You should let your nail polish dry down before applying this top coat otherwise it will drag the color off. Again, the big brush makes application of this top coat quick and easy.

Overall, I can’t get over how awesome *hype’s BIG BRUSH are to use to apply the growth booster, nail polish, and top coat! It really does make a difference where I can just apply ONE stroke and be done!

Have you tried *hype before?
