Beauty products I use

Dear Readers, I thought I would give you a full tour of the natural & ethical beauty products I choose to use. All the products are suitable for vegans and I aim to put the least amount of chemicals on my skin as possible.

The companies such as the bodyshop and Lush are also well known for their efforts to remain natural and cruelty free making them ethical choices to shop [...]
