Well hey there! Long time no see (or read, I guess). I kind of gave up on this blog for the last uh ... year, or so, but can you really blame me? Anyways, I've decided to give it another go! Wish me luck!

Today I wanted to share all of my current favourite skin, body, and haircare products simply because I haven't in a while, and I've been loving everything I'm using. I do have a "shop my skincare faves" section on my homepage, but I wanted to make a master post of all the products I use, including body and hair products.

As I've written about in previous posts, I really try to make sure my products are cruelty-free because it's something that matters to me. I'm not perfect and don't claim to be, (I use a men's, definitely not cruelty-free deoderant) but I think I've just about nailed it in terms of my beauty/skincare regime. There's a ton of resources out there for finding out if a brand is cruelty-free or not (my favourites are Cruelty Free Kitty and Ethical Elephant) or if you're at the store looking at products, just check the packaging for a Leaping Bunny symbol.

I don't have any wise words or anything, so let's just get into it!

body wash: method body deep detox | pure peace

(I've used both scents recently and they're both so good - method has amazing smelling body washes in their method body and method men* lines) *this one is my fave men's body wash scent

hand soap: method sea minerals gel hand wash

(while I'm raving about method body products, I figured I'd include the hand soap I have at every sink in our house - also such a good, refreshing scent)

body lotion: The Body Shop Vitamin E Body Butter


shampoo: Cake The Curl Girl Curl Enhancing Shampoo

purple shampoo: amika bust your brass cool blonde shampoo

(I usually get this from Sephora but couldn't find it on their website. I've only tried 2 purple shampoos, this being one of them, and it doesn't feel drying at all - it actually makes my hair feel silky; beware, the fragrance can be overwhelming if you're bothered by fragrance, otherwise, it's a very nice scent)

conditioner: Cake The Soft Serve Cream Rinse Conditioner

mask: regis designline Olive Oil Hair Masque (I couldn't really find a link for this, it's pretty old)

leave-in conditioner: Moroccanoil All in One Leave-In Conditioner

oil: Moroccanoil Treatment Mini (pricey but a little goes a long way)

curl cream: Living Proof Curl Definer Conditioning Cream

curl cream: Verb Curl Cream

dry shampoo: amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo (I rarely use dry shampoo but when I do, I usually go for this because it smells AMAZING - it does leave a white residue*, so beware)

*dry shampoo: Marc Anthony Clear Dry Shampoo

if you're worried about your dry shampoo leaving that white residue, definitely check this product out. I've used it in the past (I've used the regular clear one, I haven't tried the coconut one) and it's honestly amazing - zero white residue! they have the travel size or full size at walmart; but keep in mind, marc anthony is not a certified cruelty-free brand - while they do have some vegan products, some of their products contain silk and collagen


eyebrows: NYX Precision Brow Pencil (I have the colour Blonde)

eyebrow gel: MILK MAKEUP KUSH Clear Brow Gel

brows duo: tarte Sketch & Set Brow Pencil and Tinted Gel

lashes: tarte SEA Surfer Curl Voluminizing Mascara

bottom lases: COVERGIRL Easy Breezy Brow Setting Gel

lip care: Blistex Lip Medex (Blistex is not cruelty-free, but this product was a serious life savers during the winter and I'ms till using it now. we have 3 in the house and 1 in the Jeep, honestly)

lip care: NIVEA Sun Lip Care with SPF 30 (also not cruelty-free)

Since I've more or less been at home or wearing a mask for over a year now, I've had no use for anything other than brow and lash products. I recently did a huge clear out of all my makeup and literally only have lash, brow, and lip products left! So, this is all I use, if I ever even decide to do this much.

And that's it! Thanks for reading and hopefully I'll be back soon with some more content!
