Cruelty Free Face Products

I was having a very bad skin day, as you can see on the left, but with a few lotions and potions, I easily turned that around. 

The best part? All the products I used are 100% cruelty free (excluding parent companies e.g. L’oreal/Unilever that do), so no nasty animal testing. What’s more, they mostly contain natural and hypo-allergenic ingredients, so great news for sensitive skin! 

For a full breakdown and review of the look, read on, and for a master list of all the cruelty-free make up brands on the market, click here!

Belted Up with Gant

 

Last week I was sent a gorgeous belt by under-the-radar fashion retailer Gant courtesy of Betty & Bee. I rarely accesorise with belts either as a functional or decorational piece, but as Betty & Bee said “They’re not the most exciting of garments, but girl we need them! Not only they can add a bit of va-va-voom to an outfit, they can dress up a classic LBD, draw attention to your waist and join separates together”.

Kalopsia Assemble

On Thursday night, I went along to the launch of Assemble, a new textiles project by Kalopsia; a creative agency based in Leith, Edinburgh. Held at the hipster-central industrial-chic venue of The Biscuit Factory, the event was a relaxed affair with delicious craft beers, and a couple of explanatory and inspiring speeches from the founders thrown in. 

I was intrigued to learn more about the proposed ideas, as Kalopsia’s pop up collective The Facility sits not far from The Scottish Design Exchange where I work, but I never quite understood what the company’s visions were, so Thursday was an interesting and informative experience in a room full of passionate, creative people.
