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!
It’s the second most wonderful time of the year for those of us with massive Sephora addictions! 😝 That’s right! The Sephora VIB Sale is almost here!!! I thought I would go through some of my favorite cruelty free products available at Sephora to give you a few recommendations while considering what new goodies to pick up this go-round. Real quick, the details as I understand them are that the sale runs from April 18th through the 24th for VIB Rouge members and your discount will be 15% off of everything as many times as you choose to shop in that time frame! Similarly, VIB member will receive 15% off between April 19th and 24th, while Beauty Insiders will be getting 10% off from April 20th through April 23rd. If you’re one of these lucky Sephora Insider members, you should receive a card in the mail as well as a code in your email that can be used over and over again during the above mentioned dates! There has also been some fantastic cruelty free news: Tashina from Logical Harmony has confirmed that Smashbox and Marc Jacobs Beauty (not the fragrances) have been added to her cruelty free list (Stila‘s back too)!!! Discounts and new brands and cruelty free goodness, oh my! 😜 Enough silliness, let’s get to the recommendations (linked to reviews if I have one). 😉
As some of you may know, my hair has been thinning. It took me awhile to realize it, but it is most definitely falling out to some extent. I do have a potential answer at this point – my iron storage level is low so I need to take an iron supplement – but it’s not making my hair any thicker any faster. 😄 Given that, I’ve been doing everything I can to help my hair at least look and feel thicker with styling products. I thought I would share just what those are today! The bulk of them are from Living Proof, which is not intentional. Their products just work! I feel like there is a huge lack of information surrounding Living Proof’s cruelty free status and I’m not entirely sure why. I have emailed them a number of times and they have satisfied my questions, which keeps me believing that they are cruelty free. With that said, let’s get into how I’ve been keeping my thinning hair looking and feeling like a fuller version of the reality! 😜
