I love trying new products and when those products are cruelty-free, natural and Vegan, that’s even better. You’ll know that I’m not Vegan myself but I am actively trying to cut down the meat I’m eating and I’m really interested in looking into dairy-alternatives soon too. But I always think that any small way to help the environment is good; and buying, promoting and sharing cruelty-free and Vegan products is a great way to do that. Which is why you’ve seen a fair few natural / Vegan product reviews on my blog before! I’m here with another one for you today and this one could possibly be my favourite yet. I was so chuffed with all of these products and I can’t wait to share them with you!
I’m always up for trying new products but the thing about me is that I hate having too much “stuff”. If you know me from Twitter, you’ll know I’m a constant cleaner / sorter-outer and I hate keeping anything unnecessary. I hate having more than what I need (I guess you could say I have a fairly minimalist mindset in that respect!) and my beauty / skincare collection would be gasped at by some beauty bloggers out there! So anything that makes my life easier and isn’t left lying around doing nothing is always a bonus for me.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not becoming a beauty blogger any time soon but I do love trying new products. If anything, sometimes I like to hear the opinion from non-beauty bloggers about products over those that work in the industry – just to hear a different point of view. I was in contact with Steph on Twitter and she kindly sent me some product samples to try out and review. The products are from Forever and are all Aloe Vera based, so super natural and super healthy and they came in super cute little packets that reminded me of those you would get in a hotel.
I enter a hella lot of giveaways on Twitter – usually in the dark of the night where most of my followers are asleep so I don’t annoy them with my obsessive giveaway tweeting! And a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win one! (I’d hadn’t won anything in a while so this was a nice boost!) I won a little goodie bag from Tropic Skin Care, a natural, vegan and cruelty-free skincare range that are super duper good for your skin and have all the antioxidants, vitamins and thangs you need! I’ve never tried them before and I honestly can’t say I’ve ever tried a brand of skincare who are so natural and, well, good?
When choosing the soaps I wanted, I wanted two that were going to smell vastly different. I chose a “Citronella and Lavender” smell and a “Tea Tree and Witch Hazel” because apparently those ingredients are good for your skin – so my mum says. And mother know best. Anyway, they arrived quickly and I loved the packaging – very eau natural and authentic. Continue reading “Valley Mill: Homemade Natural Soaps”
