Earlier this year, I bought some Green People sun cream. I hadn’t realised how vast their range was and after using some of their Vita Min Fix that I received in as a sample, I decided to take a closer look at their range. These three products have become a staple part of my daily regime.
The Vita Min Fix 24-hour cream is a gorgeous great that has a lovely smell and leaves your skin feeling really soft, without any stickiness. I’ve tried numerous natural deodorants that were, quite frankly, useless as deodorants, but since becoming vegan, I’ve needed to switch a handful of products out for vegan ones and needed to find a new deodorant. I had a look on Big Green Smile, which allows you to search their products by criteria, searched for Vegan Society registered products and came across the Green People Natural Deodorant. It has really good reviews so I gave it a try. It’s excellent. I’ve got the one with added rosemary and it has a delicate smell and is effective as a deodorant. Very important after a full day of teaching in a hot and sweaty classroom! I’ve drastically reduced the amount of products I use on my hair, through no other reason than sheer laziness! Again, I needed to find a vegan product for my hair that could just help it to retain it’s style after I’ve straightened it without the product being too heavy. I saw someone on Twitter reviewing the avocado and quinoa styling gel and thought I’d give it a go. Like the other Green People products, it has a lovely smell, no horrible chemical tangs here, and it holds really gently. It even protected my hair during a bit of drizzle on school photographs day, which was excellent! No frizz photo bombing my pic!
I am a huge Green People convert. Their products are gentle on me and the environment, which is brilliant!
I’ve never been the kind of girl to spend a lot of time and money on make up. Instead, I’d always be looking for the best moisturiser or the shampoo and conditioner that helped control my fizzy mane. As I get older, I still want a good moisturiser, but it also needs to contain an SPF. I also want my beauty products to be cruelty free and use as few animal products as possible. Here’s what I’ve been using lately.

I love the shampoo bar from Lush. Not only does it not have any packaging, but it’s a great shampoo. Poppy does like to eat soap, so we have to keep it in one of the Lush tins but I honestly don’t think I’ll go back to bottled shampoo. This little bar packs a real punch. For years I’ve been making my own sugar scrub, but I wanted something quick and easy to use and this exfoliator bar is perfect. It’s got a lovely smell and does the job. I needed some facial moisturiser and was given the Burt’s Bees one for Christmas. It’s great, lasts ages and isn’t too greasy. Throughout winter, I needed to make sure I took care of my skin by using a gentle facial exfoliator and this one by UrbanVeda is brilliant. It’s really gentle, smells great and you only need a little. Love it! The Olive Branch shower gel by Lush is a recent find but I love it so much. It’s got a great smell and really helps to keep your skin soft and supple. The Jason Aloe Vera lotion is my best find ever. I suffer from really dry skin and this little beauty has kept my skin in tip top shape all through winter. I will never use anything else!
