8 Conscious Moisturisers for Winter

Your skin goes through a lot, and as a result of exposure to the elements (cold, wind and central heating) it can really suffer when the weather gets colder, getting dry and irritated. That’s why moisturising regularly and keeping your skin hydrated is especially important. Here are our favourite conscious moisturisers for your face, body, and hands to help you get through the winter. Face Arbonne Clear Future Mattifying Blemish Lotion: This vegan moisturiser is great if your skin is prone to blemishes.

4 Conscious Makeup Removers

If you wear makeup then you most likely will use a makeup remover to take it off at the end of the day – hopefully! Makeup remover is one of those boring things like toothpaste that you only need to pick up once you run out of it but you always need to repurchase and usually always buy the same one. However, a lot of the skincare brands are not environmentally friendly and often not cruelty-free. Brands such as Garnier and Simple, for example, are so easily accessible that we tend to reach for their products without thinking. If we…

A Conscious Introduction to Vegan Skincare

Vegan skincare – it sounds like a simple concept, but if you’ve ever tried to actually change up your beauty products and switch to vegan ones, I’m sure you’ve come across a few confusing hurdles. There are a lot of different terms thrown around – vegetarian, vegan, cruelty-free, natural, organic – which all sound good, but they have important differences in meaning. There’s also a range of different certifications and confusing ingredient names which make the whole area a bit messy. So we’ve put together this guide to give you an introduction to vegan skincare and makeup and help clear…

Tried & Tested: Faith in Nature

Faith in Nature was the first ever natural/eco beauty brand I started using when I decided to try and live a more ethical and sustainable lifestyle. Living in Brighton, I’m lucky enough to have Infinity Foods, a cooperative stocking natural and organic products, so I went in and picked out the Faith in Nature shampoos, and I haven’t looked back! I’ve also recently tried a moisturiser from the brand, but I’m not so keen on that one unfortunately. I also use their hand soaps exclusively and have tried a bunch of their different shampoos and conditioners! Faith in Nature is…

Beauty Round Up: Cruelty Free Hair Dye

Dying your hair is a great way of making an easy yet impactful change. It’s the perfect way to reinvent yourself if you’re feeling a little low or to jazz up your look if you’re getting slightly bored of it. Unfortunately, a lot of readily available hair dye is not cruelty free and I’ve always thought it was difficult to get hold of cruelty free hair dye, and even harder to get hold of dye that uses natural ingredients. Thankfully, after a year of trialling many different hair colours, I’ve found some solid options for consciously changing your hair colour….

Beauty Roundup: Conscious Lipsticks

Everyone has their go-to lipsticks, the product they paint onto their lips on a Sunday morning to mask their hangover, the shade to jazz up any outfit on a night out, or the lipstick that completes your day to day outfit choices. Although many of the products out there aren’t so ethically or sustainably made, we’ve been on the search for conscious alternatives to add to our makeup bags and have found a wide range of lipsticks that are environmentally friendly, vegan and cruelty free! So here’s our favourite sustainable and ethical lipsticks… #1: 100% Pure Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick…

5 Favourite Eco Friendly Glitter Brands

Here at Revival Collective we love glitter and all things sparkly as much as anyone… but what we don’t love is its damaging effect on the environment. Glitter is basically tiny bits of shiny plastic and aluminium. When you wash it off or your sparkles sprinkle onto the floor, they pollute eco-systems as they are non bio-degradable. Like other micro-plastics this is incredibly damaging, as the glitter can potentially be ingested by wildlife, making its way up through the food chain and causing mutations and other lasting damage. However, there are alternatives out there! One big supplier, Ronald Britton have created an…

Tried & Tested: Conscious Skincare

Conscious Skincare is a fantastic brand if you’re looking for vegan, cruelty-free, organic skincare, because it has a huge product range! I’ve often found with brands that tick all my boxes, they only have a few products I’m really interested in. Conscious Skincare offers everything from face wash and serums to hand wash and bath oils – they even have a men’s range and a baby range! I’ve been trying out a couple of their products so I wanted to share my thoughts with you. Of course, these two products just scratch the surface of what’s available, but trying out…
