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.

ncLA Hello Kitty Nail Wraps (Cruelty-Free & Vegan)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Thanks to ncLA, I recently rediscovered the joy of nail wraps!! I used to buy the Sally Hansen nail strips but since going cruelty-free and vegan, I stopped buying them as they test on animals. So I was ecstatic when ncLA sent me a bunch of their cruelty-free and vegan nail wraps to try!

The have a bunch of designs to choose from but I was most interested in their Hello Kitty nail wraps!

ncLA Hello Kitty Nail Wraps

The pack comes with 26 nail wraps, all ranging in different nail sizes and it also comes with the cutest Hello Kitty nail file! The Hello Kitty & Friends set features the fabulous Hello Kitty, Keroppi, Badtz-maru, Purin, Chococat, My Melody, and Tuxedo Sam.

Sadly, the pack didn’t include my favorite Sanrio character, Pochacco! =( Who is your fave character??

Application of ncLA nail wraps

Nail wraps are so much fun! I mean, who doesn’t enjoy putting stickers onto their nails?!

The instructions are easy: (1) Clean nails with remover (2) Apply a coat of clear nail polish (3) Choose correct size for each nail (4) Peel wrap and apply onto nail (4) Use nail file to remove the excess (5) Apply another coat of clear nail polish (6) Admire your instant nail art work!

Review of ncLA Hello Kitty Nail Wraps

It goes without saying that I LOVE the nail wrap designs of each Sanrio character! They’re all super cute!!

They applied easily and nicely where it was really easy to smooth out any air bubbles and edges. It does take a bit of practice to know how to file the excess off without leaving a raw edge.

I did have a hard time peeling some of the nail wraps off the paper, causing me to rip them off with the paper attached underneath.

Also, I may be the exception since I have extremely tiny nails, but most of the nail sizes didn’t work for me. For example, the smallest size of nail wrap could actually be used on my middle finger! So I struggled a bit with trying to find sizes that would fit my tiny nails. I ended up having to cut the one for my pinky to fit.

Overall, I think my nails look ADORABLE! I’ve always been an admirer of nail art but I don’t have the steady hands or patience to do my own so this is such a fab option for peeps like me!

I would definitely recommend ncLA’s cruelty-free and vegan nail wraps! They’re so much fun!

    So cuuuute!!! I’ve never tired nail wraps, but I’d totally try these!

    I love My Melody, Twin Stars, Hello Kitty, Keroppi and Ahiru No Pekkle (duck) but he’s been discontinued. At one point in the late ’90’s Keroppi was difficult to find.
