5 Travel Friendly Ethical Beauty Must-haves + Giveaway

Festive


Can you believe how fast this year has flown by and here we are in the festive season looking forward to a New Year. Many things have happened over 2018 but one of the biggest and most positive movements has been towards a more ethical and sustainable lifestyle wether that has meant moving towards a more minimalist home with lower waste and less plastic to including more vegan dishes and products into your life it's all positive in my books.

I thought I would share a 4 things I have tried and tested and give the thumbs up too with the aim of reducing waste as well as using more natural based products in your home and health and beauty routine.



ethical beauty



1. Intimina Lily Cup - More woman than ever are moving towards reusable menstrual cups as they are an eco friendly alternative to tampons and sanitary pads. Intimina's Lily Cup is really easy and comfortable to use and is spill-free and designed to fit your body's natural shape. These are also great when your on the go and can be used during activities such as swimming and running. These retail at around £24.95 and save you lots in the long-run

2. Vegan by Dr Botanicals Coconut Oil Exfoliating Bar - firstly this is bar is packaging in a cardboard which is ace uses natural, vegan and cruelty ingredients. I love this bar as it doubles up as a soap and cleanser when traveling as well as gently exfoliating. The uplifting coconut aroma is also perfection after a long day. These bars retail at around £18 and a little goes a long way.

3. Humble Brush - based in Sweden the Humble Brush is such an easy way to replace plastic toothbrushes with a more sustainable option made from biodegradable sustainably-grown bamboo, plus it's travel friendly too. Another massive positive is that each purchase goes towards funding projects for the benefit of children in need. They also make children's brushes making this a great family friendly option too. The brushes retail at around £4

4. Green People - Forest & Fruit Body Collection - whether at home or on the road it's easier than ever to make more ethical choices when it comes to skincare and I just love Green People and have been using their products for years. This fairly traded pack comes with Shower Gel & Body Lotion and are made with 83% organic ingredients and is vegan and cruelty-free. Plus a donation from the sale of each Modern Botanical gifts goes to Plantlife - a British conservation charity that works to save threatened wild flowers, plants and fungi, so not only will your skin feel great but you will too.


Green People


5. Organic Children - Fruity Favourites Collection - Made by Green People, again we use a lot of this in our house what I really like about this collection is that it comes with organic Hand Sanitiser which is made from 96% organic ingredients and is ideal for travelling. The Shampoo, conditioner and shower berry smoothie are all vegan, cruelty free, fairly traded and are also gentle on the skin and suitable for sensitive skin types and 10% of profits are donate to charity. This pack retails at around £35.


Ethical skincare


Best of all is I am running a giveaway for one lucky reader to win a little ethical New Years beauty hamper including a Intimina Lily Cup, A Vegan by Dr Botanicals Bar, 1 Adult and 1 Child Humble Brush and a Green People Fruit and Forest Gift pack worth around £58 . The giveaway ends on the 7th January 2019 and is open to UK residents.
