Here are the latest cool vegan friendly beauty and hair products that we love and know you will too!
The new Noughty haircare range (£6.99)
Whether you want to fight the frizz, battle product build-up or simply define those curls, Noughty haircare products are designed to make a real difference to your locks and are suitable for all hair types including extensions.
Made in the UK using natural, high quality ingredients such as coconut oil, olive oil, sea kelp, blue mallow flower and argan oil. Noughty’s natural ingredients pack a punch, for hair that feels and smells as good as it looks. Plus, it’s gentle enough for the whole family (without costing the earth!).
Our hair felt soft and manageable – would use again.
At Superdrug stores nationwide, and online www.noughtyhaircare.com.
Sheila’s Natural Creams (£44)
All creams are plant based and 100% vegan.
Shelia’s Natural Creams contain Safflower & Vitamin E oils.
Vitamin E is used for its known classic antioxidant qualities, comprising a mixture of alpha, beta, gamma and delta tocopherols which are 100% natural protecting against the destruction of the connective tissues caused by free radicals of the skin.
Cold pressed Safflower oil is used because of its high linoleic qualities containing essential omega 3 and 6 fatty acids which provide a good base that is opulently silky rather than ‘sticky’.
And we agree this felt lovely to use.
Arbonne Lipstick (£20)
Arbonne is a health, wellness and beauty brand who specialise in vegan friendly, 100% natural and botanically based products.
The use of botanical ingredients inspired the primarily floral names of each lipstick, which comprise Aster, Camellia, Currant, Dahlia, Dream*, Flora, Guava, Hibiscus, Iris, Lotus, Magnolia, Peony, Poppy, Rose, Terra and Willow.
Each lipstick is vegan friendly, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and formulated without gluten or parabens. All 16 shades blend effortlessly with Arbonne’s accompanying new lip liner and lip gloss ranges, ensuring your pout is at its most perfect.
We love that unlike other non vegan brands this does not contain dead squashed beetles to make the colour!
HELLO MOISTURE Nourishing Repair Shampoo (£3.50)
This rich shampoo drenches hair in moisture, making styling a breeze. Say hello to happy hair!
Phil Smith BE GORGEOUS haircare has succeeded in partnering with Cruelty Free International, the global organisation dedicated to ending animal testing for personal care and other consumer products worldwide.
Cruelty Free International also certifies companies under the international ‘Leaping Bunny’ programme.
“It’s important to keep your hair well conditioned on a regular basis. Replenish lost moisture with deep conditioning treatments at least once a week to see the benefits. For an effective way of adding moisture, try adding a touch of heat to the treatment. Comb the conditioner through wet hair, wear a shower cap, and on a low hairdryer setting, point towards the head for a few minutes. This will lock in the extra moisture your hair is craving.”
Exclusive to Sainsbury’s stores nationwide. Vegan friendly.
We loved the intensive conditioner too – leave in for 15 minutes for a deep hair treat.
Benecos Nail Varnish – Desire (£6.95)
The Benecos Taupe Temptation Nail Polish is a light pinky-brown colour that is perfect for an understated and on-trend look
A bold nail is a quick and easy way to update your look. These stunning colours from benecos are not only on-trend, long lasting and chip-resistant, but also vegan and free from nasty chemicals. It is not easy to find chemical free nail varnish. Benecos produce a range of natural polishes which minimises the use of potentially harmful chemicals. Traditionally, nail varnish contains formaldehyde, a probable carcinogen, and toluene, phthalates, camphor and colophony – these are known as irritants, and they are related to health problems including contact dermatitis and breathing difficulties. Benecos nail polish is free from all five of these toxic synthetic chemicals.
A welcome break from Karin’s favourite black nail varnish and it lasts too!
Benecos Quattro Eye Shadow – Smokey Eye (£6.95)
This Benecos Quattro Eyeshadow is all you need to line, define and contour your eyes like a pro and is the must have product to add to your make up collection.
Say hello to the perfect Smokey eye. This stunning palette contains four must-have shades that can be used separately or worn together to create the ultimate Smokey eye. From the stunning shimmery grey to the carbon black (with a hint or sparkle), this palette can be used to create a stunning array of looks. There is even a striking silver to see you through to New Year’s.
Just loved this, a subtle smoky eye topped with a liquid liner – we want to try more colours!
All of the above have been tried and tested by VeggieVision TV reviewers including VV TV founder Karin Ridgers too. We love to tell you about gorgeous cruelty free haircare, skincare and cosmetics so we can all look and feel great without compromise of our ethics.
