Six Make Up Bag Essentials

living-light-blog:

Here’s a couple of our favourite products that are 100% cruelty free and made with Vegan ingredients! Click on the titles for more information and to purchase your own.

Hemp Hand Cream

This is AMAZING - highly moisturising, smells wonderful and is great for the environment as it contains Community Trade hemp seed oil. To read up on the benefits of the wonderful plant that is hemp, click here.

Crazy Rumors Lip Balm

We both love Crazy Rumours lip balm! Hannah uses Berry Bubble and I use Bubble Gum, but all the flavours taste amazing and they really do work at keeping your lips nice and hydrated.

Oatifix Face Mask

I guess this is a bathroom essential rather than a make up bag item, but either way this fresh Lush Oatifix mask does a great job at refreshing and smoothing tired skin. It contains oats, bananas and vanilla so you’re basically putting a tasty cake (that’s great for your skin) onto your face.

Grapefruit Oil

Trust me on this one, grapefruit oil is THE BOMB. Especially good for when you’re feeling down or a little PMS, just rub a tiny bit of oil on your wrists or use a few drops with Coconut Oil (see below) to massage into your skin. You can also add a drop or two of Grapefruit Oil (and any other essential oils) to your bath! 

Coconut Oil

The mother of all products ever ever ever - this is something I swear by and use at least twice a day. I (Anastasia) have suffered from eczema my whole life and when it calmed down I threw out all of my steroid creams and chemical moisturisers and turned to coconut oil. My skin has never been better and it truly is a magical product! I recommend going for a raw, pure, coconut oil which can be found for relatively cheap in most places. Make sure to check in Chinese or Indian supermarkets as they sometimes stock it, as it can also be used for cooking food. I use it all over my skin and once every two months I cover my hair in it and leave for an hour before washing it all out with shampoo and conditioner. Coconut oil has a crazy list of amazing benefits that you can check out here.
