When it comes to skincare, I will admit that I’m boring and predictable!

"lesser-known brands can be a better option when you're wanting a vegan and/or cruelty-free range of cosmetics."
The only exception to my ‘no-buy’ rule is when it comes to bath, shower & body.

I think ‘yes’, and I also believe that it’s becoming increasingly popular to say “no” to the constant advertising that surrounds us, and instead search-out something unique – something that’s unapologetically good, without having to shout about it.
Add to this the fact that many independant, lesser-known brands can be a better option when you're wanting a vegan and/or cruelty-free range of cosmetics.
So if this article is resonating and you want locations to search for unique, quality brands, here are some of my favorites:
