Wow! Did 2018 disappear in the blink of an eye! Anyone else with me? I know it’s cliched to say, but it is so true. It was a crazy year with a lot of major changes – mostly from mid-year and will be continuing on into the beginning of 2019. Nothing bad (I hope! 😉), but it’s been super hectic…thus the total lack of blog posts the past 6 months. I really tried (at least initially) to keep posting – in fact, I have an August Favorites post still sitting on my computer that was never posted. Good intentions couldn’t win out over the craziness. If you’d still like to see that post, let me know and I’d be more than happy to post it…or maybe transform it into a “Recent Favorites” type of thing. Anyway, back to the point. Since I love Favorites posts so much, I wanted to make a real effort to post my Annual Beauty Favorites. So here we are! I’m gonna do my best to keep it as short as I can, but we all know that I run on…and on…and on. 😄 To help with that a bit, I’m going to break the faves into a few categories. It should also help organize my thoughts a bit. I have yet to tackle my Makeup Favorites, so who knows if or when they’ll make an appearance, but I’m trying! All of these items were not necessarily new in 2018, nor were they all new to me, but they were definitely the things I reached for over and over again. So, let’s see how we do here and start with some of my Favorite Skin Care Products from 2018!
Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation SALE – Cruelty Free Picks!
Believe it or not, it’s that glorious time of the year again…a Sephora Sale is here! Yes, that’s right. There’s a Beauty Insider Appreciation Sale in August instead of the usual early November VIB time frame. No one seems certain if this is a replacement sale time, or an additional sale. I’m hoping for the later…I think! 😉 Given the unexpected discount season, I thought I would share some of my Cruelty Free Recommendations for the sale. So we’ll start with the recommendations, and end with the boring sale details – there’s an unusual restriction this time around that I haven’t heard many mention that may affect your purchasing, so I’ll explain that. So, without further ado, let’s get into it!
Cruelty Free July Beauty Favorites – Rahua, ColourPop, Volition & More!
Another month down, so it’s time for another installment of Cruelty Free Favorites! July was a month of trying to switch things up on the makeup front, so I feel like it’s unfair to mention some of the makeup that I may love, but didn’t use frequently. That said, I had a bit of a go-to eye look, as well as some skin and hair favorites…plus a semi-random one, though it might be expected if you’ve seen some of my other random inclusions. 😉 So, as per usual, let’s just get to it!
(A Very Late) Cruelty Free June Beauty Favorites!
Agh! Summer is nearly halfway over! How does time fly by so fast?!?! Since another month has long since passed, it’s well past time to round up the best of the best cruelty free stuff that I couldn’t stop using in June! There were some definite constants in my makeup routine with some great new finds as well. There’s a bit of makeup, some skin care, and even a new bag to include! So, without giving it all away right off the bat, let’s get into my Cruelty Free June Favorites…bonus, a lot of them are vegan too!
Cruelty Free May Beauty Favorites 2018!
Ok. Let’s see if I can get this Cruelty Free May Favorites posted at a decent point in the month for a change. 😜 I feel like each month is getting increasingly more hectic and I’m feel more and more disheveled as we go. 😄 But fear not! I am getting the hang of things and dealing well enough…though the blog is clearly suffering. 🙃 All of that said, I haven’t been wearing makeup as often or switching up products as much as I might normally, but I still have some favorites… some really amazing favorites! Are you ready? Let’s reveal the cruelty free gems from May!!!
Cruelty Free APRIL Favorites! (Yes, I’m Behind with EVERYTHING) ;)
I know it’s a bit late…as well as another “Favorites” post…but it’s way past time for my Cruelty Free April Favorites!!! Yes, April. Yet again, I wrote this a while ago, but have just now gotten all the pieces together so that it can be posted. I’d be lying if I said April…and now May…wasn’t a crazy month, which is part of the reason I’ve been so absent lately. But fear not, I still have some favorites to throw atcha! 😄 We have a good mix of makeup, with a touch of skincare, body care and hair care. So, we’ve established what’s in store for my Cruelty Free April Favorites. Now let’s dive in!
