Carmine – The Bugs in Beauty Products

One of the most commonly used animal derived ingredients in cosmetics is carmine and it is also the ingredient which makes a lot nail polishes non vegan (in addition to a few others, of course). Carmine is derived from crushed cochineal bugs – that’s right..BUGS. Whilst for many (if not most) people this is a rather gross realization and enough of a reason to avoid carmine, some people however ask why using carmine might be a “problem”. In today’s video and blog post we are going to talk about carmine, what it is and why we don’t want it in our cosmetics (or anywhere else for that matter).

5 Tips for Creating Your Vegan Beauty Routine

By now many of us know that a lot of the beauty products that we use have been either tested on animals OR include animal derived ingredients in them. It might seem like an easy decision to just switch to vegan & cruelty-free products but then you go to the store and a sense of overwhelm takes over; which products are vegan? Which brands are cruelty-free? Where do I even find vegan & cruelty-free products? Switching your beauty routine to a vegan one may seem overwhelming at first but it’s actually not that difficult if you just remember a few things. In today’s blog and video we talk about our five tips for creating your vegan beauty routine and collection.

Sunscreen: All You Need to Know + Our Top Picks!

We are stepping into the beautiful hot summer months which means it’s also time to seriously start applying sunscreen – like SERIOUSLY. And we mean every – single – day. By now most of us know that protecting our skin against the harmful UV rays from the sun is important in order to maintain healthy and beautiful skin (but also health in general). However, it does often seem to be such a dilemma because conventional sunscreens often include harsh chemical UV filters which can be harmful not only to our skin/health but also to the environment. But then again, when we choose a more natural or mineral sunscreen, we are left looking like ghosts as the mineral UV filters tend to leave a white layer/coating on our skin. So which sunscreen should we choose, which is best for our skin, the environment, the animals AND which doesn’t leave us looking like ghosts? In today’s blog and video find out more about why you should opt for a mineral sunscreen and some of our top sunscreen recommendations + enter our giveaway for a chance to win some mineral sunscreens!

Best Nail Polish Colours for our Toes

The hot summer months are just around the corner and we are slowly starting to take out our fave sandals and walk around with some fresh air on our feet. We all know what that means, right? Time to make sure our feet are looking summer fabulous which means getting those pedicures done. Choosing a nail polish colour for our feet is a pretty “important” decision actually. Nail polish on our toes can easily last several weeks on our feet without us feeling the need to remove it. That’s why we recommend choosing a colour which is chic and classic that will go with everything so that you don’t feel the need to change your pedicure colour as often as your manicure colour. In today’s blog post, check out our top five summer nail polish colours for our toes.

Why does Nail Polish “Smell”?

Most nail polishes, whether it’s a “free from” or a conventional nail polish will have that typical nail polish smell. With some, the smell will be stronger and with others it will be slightly milder. But why does nail polish have this smell and is it “bad” for us? We answer these questions in today’s video and blog post.
