Recently I have had questions from friends and readers asking about what I do in terms of makeup remover and face wash which is suitable for vegans. My response is always ‘very little and it is completely natural.‘ I have written the details of my skincare routine here to answer these questions.
For the last 4 months or so after I experienced a brief period of bad skin, after changing my routine once again from a makeup cleanser from bodyshop which had not worked, I went looking for a new, alternative option. I already used coconut oil extensively to look after my skin and hair but not consistently and not without using another face wash or moisturiser.
My Skincare routine
This is when I came across the idea of only using homemade oil based skin cleanser. I read an article explaining how it can instantly clear up your skin as well as remove makeup, cruelty free and being an economical option, all lead to me deciding to give it a go. I decided to mix olive oil and coconut oil together.
To use simply apply to dry skin and remove with hot water, I use the deep cleansing cellulose sponges to do this which you can get from boots. Since using this simple makeup remover my skin has become so much clearer (see below). I would definitely recommend using this if you are struggling with problematic skin.

I rotate this with using the Bare Minerals oil cleanser when I’m on the move as its easy to transport and pre-made 🙂 It also is infused with lots of nutrients and delicious smelling ingredients.
Lush Coffee Scrub
I also use lush coffee scrub once a week as an exfoliator when my skin needs it. I adore both the smell and the smooth soft skin I’m left with after use. A perfect natural cruelty free solution for your skincare routine!
