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.

    Hi! I’m sorry but the official website of The Balm says that the Foiled Again… Eyeshadow Palette and In theBalm of Your Hand Palette, have CARMINE (CI 75470) as an ingredient πŸ™

      Hi Patricia,

      Hm.. thanks for catching that! I’ve removed both the products you mentioned from this list. This vegan product list was pulled from the balm’s official website when I searched for the keyword “vegan”. It appears as though some of their products that contain carmine were included in the search results. Thanks for letting me know and to help keep this list as accurate and updated as possible =)

    Hi there! Thx for this post, it is very helpful :”D I know this is a new product but I just wanna ask, do you have any updated info about their new product, Even Steven Foundation from The Balm, is it a vegan product? I have seen many reviews that this foundation is so damn cool. Thx for your response πŸ™‚

    Hey Vicky! Do you know what doesn’t make the other TheBalm mascaras vegan? I checked the ingredient list and I don’t see any difference. Thanks for you help!

    Just found this via google and am so, so glad! I have been using the tinted moisturiser for like 2 years now and I am so glad to hear it’s vegan. Been slowly switching out my old products to more natural ones but it’s nice to know that my current stuff is vegan in the mean time. (I’m the slowest vegan transition-er ever. I haven’t ate an animal product in years but my stuff? still transitioning ever so slowly.)

      Glad you found this helpful! I’m still waiting to hear back from theBalm for an updated list of their vegan products as I like to keep all of these lists up-to-date as possible! But whenever you’re in doubt about whether something is vegan… you can definitely email the company and ask! =) it can be a little time consuming but totally worth it in the end to know that the products you choose to buy don’t hurt animals =)

      Keep going girl! I was just like you.. where it was super easy for me to cut out animal products in my diet but switching all my beauty products out to cruelty-free/vegan alternatives took months.. even years! It’s definitely not a race.. just gotta do it at your own pace (ha! that rhymes!)

    All colours selection of Read My Lips are vegan products? Would like to try out their lipgloss!

    • Vicky Ly
      February 22, 2016

      I believe so! This vegan list was provided by theBalm and I just checked out the ingredients for Read My Lips and carmine (the red pigment from crushed insects) wasn’t listed, and it wasn’t listed in the “may contain” section too.

      If you want to make sure, feel free to email them asking if a particular color is vegan.. they are usually very good with responding back! =)

    Are the Cindy-Lou Manizer and the Betty-Lou Manizer vegan too?

    • Vicky Ly
      February 9, 2016

      No, unfortunately Cindy-Lou Manizer and the Betty-Lou Manizer both include an ingredient called Carmine which is derived from crushed insects (More on carmine here: http://bit.ly/1XUc7iv)

      and therefore both products from theBalm are NOT vegan.

      Hope that helps, Kim =)

    This is a great post! Some of my favorites from theBalm are the Mary-Lou Manizer and Put a Lid On It, and I actually just did a review of the INSTAIN Blushes over on my blog. Thanks for doing this research!
