Sustainable Beauty Shopping List

Along with creating a more sustainable wardrobe, I am also interested in my other parts of my life more sustainable. One of the main things being beauty. I think it is soooo important that we know exactly what we are putting on our skin and where it exactly it comes from.

So recently I have been looking into ethical and sustainable beauty brands to decide which ones I want to trial and what would work best for my skin. I have very sensitive skin and suffer from quite bad acne so its important to me to know what I'm putting on my skin and to make sure it doesn't irritate it. Below I have picked out a couple of beauty/make up brands that I am going to be buying and trying over the next month. Then hopefully round the beginning of November I can share with you guys that results!

Herbivore Botanicals


They create natural, cruelty-free skincare that’s safe, non-toxic, and highly effective as well recyclable and reusable packaging! I really want to try out their Pink Clay mask and Mint Lip butter.

RMS Beauty


This brand is based on raw, living and organic principles. Their makeup is created to transform the way we use make up which is not only non-toxic but actually heals skin! From RMS I want to try one of their cover-up concealers.

Burt's Bee


A brand I'm sure many of you have already heard of for their lip balms, but Burt's Bees has a great selection of skincare that is created from natural ingredients. It has a whole section on their website sharing their sustainable philosophy from the ingredients they use in their products to their recycled packaging.

Au Naturale


This is an ethically sourced brand whose products are vegan, gluten- free, non-toxic and paraben-free. They also have a recycling rewards programme. I want to try out some of their lipsticks and eyeshadows!
