Cruelty Free Vegan Pampering

Hey Spookies! Lately I've been feeling a bit run down, so I decided that I'd treat myself to a pamper session. I've been lucky enough to accumulate products from event goodybags over the time I've been blogging, so I thought it'd be nice to do a full afternoon of treating myself with some of the amazing vegan and cruelty-free bits I've been gifted and dying to try.

please note: Nügg facemasks are not vegan but I thought they were when writing this post - more info below
Waltz 7 Shower Spa Aroma Tab in Relaxing Lavender* //
'What is a Shower Spa Aroma Tab?' I hear you cry! It's a nifty little tablet you just pop on the floor of your shower, and whilst you shower it releases a lovely scent. Genius, right?! This lil' lavender tab smelled so good, and the scent quickly filled the whole bathroom. It's such a nice addition to a shower, and really enjoying relaxing makes a change from just hopping in and out as quickly as possible. 

This soap is just lovely! It lathers up so much so I can forsee it lasting an age. It smelled absolutely delicious, but is quite a subtle peppermint. It was really nice on my skin too, which is always a bonus as someone who suffers with quite severe eczema. It left my skin feeling super soft and smelling good, which is all you really need from a bar of soap!

Nügg Shea Butter & Chamomile Extract Soothing Face Mask* //
When I took the photos and originally wrote this post, I was under the impression this face mask was vegan, however later found out that whilst the ingredients themselves are vegan, an enzyme from cow's milk is used in the processing of the xanthan gum. Sorry :(

I put loads of this in as I wasn't going anywhere, but ordinarily you'd use this product sparingly. It made my hair super soft and definitely did the job! A couple of washes later, my hair still feels incredibly soft, so it definitely has a long lasting effect. My hair took longer to dry with this product in, which was expected, but it also made my hair dry curlier, which was kinda strange. It seems to have accelerated my hair colour fading too, which I'm not thrilled about, but that may have been the extra sun exposure too!

This green tea was absolutely lovely! It had a really smooth, mild flavour which I loved as herbal teas can sometimes be a bit strong for me. Freddie, a tea conniseur, says it was lovely too, so gold star for We Are Tea!

  1. Aww babe, I would have been gutted about the face mask too! However, all the other products sound amazing and I hope to try them myself some day. Thank you for sharing, it was a wonderful read. 🌸💗✨
