Cruelty-free beauty reviews, news & photos

There’s nothing beautiful about the suffering of dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs or any other animal for the sake of your skincare, makeup or any other cosmetic product. That’s why I opt for cruelty-free, vegan beauty products and this is where you’ll find my beauty reviews, updates and some of my own research as I try to live a kind and compassionate lifestyle.

Having been a Lushie for years now, I knew I had to pay their flagship store a visit before I flew back to Sydney. With three levels of Lush goodness to peruse through, I waded through the crowds of tourists and locals alike to marvel at their artfully curated collection.

Aēsop Protective Lip Balm Review

posted by leann January 23, 2016 0 comments

I’ve had a bit of a rough relationship with Aēsop in the past, not because their products didn’t work for me, but because I’m an idealist and am always on the search for something ‘better’.

In the spirit of love and acceptance, LUSH Cosmetics is running a meaningful campaign for Valentine’s Day again this year with a range of limited edition LUSH goodies available from 27 January and ending on Valentine’s Day.

NYR Wild Rose Beauty Balm Review

posted by leann January 9, 2016 0 comments

I had been eyeing this multi-tasking jar of balmy goodness for months before a sales assistant at David Jones had me at “lip balm” when I asked if it could be used for anything else other than what was listed on the box.

Admittedly, I broke my skincare budget to take this home with me but I was sceptical about its multi-purpose claims, the sales girl really, really vouched for those claims and I just really wanted to try another balm cleanser since LUSH’s Ultrabland so this is how the story goes.
