On Saturday 22nd October, I hosted a Fashion and Beauty event at The Scottish Design Exchange to promote our local fashion designers with special offers, mini makeovers by Cait Owens MUA, styling advice by Kimberley Grahame of Wardrobe Conversations and contemporary portraits by Deryck Henley. We also had Iona May, brand ambassador for cruelty-free beauty brand Arbonne, with lots of lovely product samples. I took some of the all natural, botanical vegan skincare products home to try out, and thought I’d do a little review!

Calm Gentle Daily Moisturiser

I really loved the cooling formula of this light face cream, which I am told is perfect for sensitive skin. After using a face scrub to cleanse my pores, this moisturiser gently softens and calms the skin.


This smooth formula created a really smooth surface before make-up; I would definitely recommend it as an alternative to the thick, oily primers from other brands.

Facial Oil

I only needed a minuscule amount of this ‘nourishing’ facial oil, and I immediately felt my drying winter skin drink it up, without feeling greasy. It contains omega 3 and 6, which is great for vegetarians and vegans who may be deficient.

CC Cream

This is a lovely alternative to foundation on those rare good skin days! Its much like a tinted moisturiser but with added benefits, like brightening and smoothing the skin.
