There are (at least) six cruelty-free beauty products that Business Assistant (and blogger!) Patrizia just can’t do without. Find out which ones she swears by til the very last drop…
I combine this with my powder bronzer and use it to contour my cheeks and nose. I’ve used other brands, but love that Vapour is light, doesn’t clog my pores and leaves a dewy glow.
I’ve only ever tried white eyeliner on the inside of my eye, and it never really looked right. This is the perfect shade for me (I have olive skin and dark eyes). It makes my eyes look bigger and brighter!
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…” There really isn’t enough I could say about this bottle of glowy magic. I use it every morning by mixing it with my moisturizer. I apply it all over my face, my neck, and my décolletage. It gives me a shimmery, glowy, dewiness that I absolutely love. For the first time ever I don’t mind leaving the house without make-up, as long as I have my Highlight of the Day!
I’ve tried so many mascaras and I am happy to report RMS’s is one of the best. My eyelashes aren’t naturally full, so I am always looking for a mascara that will add volume without lumps. This one perfectly accomplishes that and it’s also very easy to remove (no scary raccoon eyes!).
Lip stains usually leave my lips feeling very dry, but Upna’s is different. It goes on wet and quickly dries to a beautiful matte finish that lasts for HOURS while keeping my lips hydrated.
This little guy now lives in my purse. It’s a tiny and convenient stick that I can reapply whenever I need, wherever I am! Perfect for the lip area, bridge of my nose, under the arch of my brows…. Pretty much anywhere and everywhere I want a little extra highlight!
Associate Merchandiser Alyssa (and #1 fan of embracing youth and freedom) shares why these six skincare products are good to the literal last drop…
My all-time favorite cleanser! I’ve repurchased it so many times I’ve lost count. It is super pure and simple – great for your skin since it’s packed with antioxidants, made of kale, spinach + green tea. I wash my face with this cleanser each morning/night and every time I feel like my skin is eating vegetables!!
Pretty sure this is *magic* in a bottle – it exfoliates, evens skin tone, brightens, smooths out any lines – when I’m good about using it daily, I notice my skin is extra glowy and smooth. I know it’s a pricier product but so. worth. it.
I’m a really big fan of a great eye mask. I love these because I can move around the house without having them slide off my face. Sometimes I put them in the fridge for just a few minutes before putting them on for an extra-intense burst of cool/tingly feelings that instantly de-puff and brighten my undereye.
Sunscreen is soooo important, even now that we are heading out of summer – I put it on every morning when I’m getting ready so my skin is protected throughout the day. I love this one because it doesn’t feel thick or greasy like most sunscreens and sits nicely under makeup or on its own if I’m going barefaced that day!
I like to mix these into my cups of tea a few times a week – great for hair, skin, nails, etc.!
I keep my facial roller in the fridge and roll it all over my face whenever I’m home relaxing/watching Netflix. I also love using it whenever I am just finishing up a sheet mask to help get all the extra serum in. 😊 The list of benefits for this little tool are sort of endless but my favorites include: boosting natural collagen, improving skin elasticity + reducing wrinkles (because I want young-looking skin forever!) and it helps stimulate the lymphatic system + circulate the blood in my face (because to be honest, that just sounds good)!

This is my all-time favorite dry shampoo, leaving my hair feeling and smelling fresh. Totally absorbs oils and never leaves any residue! Playa’s Pure Dry Shampoo has completely changed my need to wash my hair every day ❤ I also love to use this product as a texturizing spray on clean hair.
Voir Hair Masque
The inspiration behind this product is what first drew me to it — “inspired by the soothing tranquility of a cool rain”… I mean, dreamy! Then I tried it and I can’t stop using it. My hair tends to be quite dry but this really locks in moisture and makes my hair feel so soft.
This oil smells like a dream and leaves your hair feeling so soft!
