Vegan skincare has been booming in the past 5 years and you probably already are using quite a few vegan beauty and makeup products, but are they fully vegan?

For a product to be approved for Vegan Certification, it must not contain any animal-derived ingredients.

100% vegan brands are not common and they are still few and far between. Most of the organic and cruelty-free skincare brands still use animal by-products as lanolin and beeswax. 
These need to be replaced for the range to class as a fully vegan brand and earn that vegan sticker. Formulas become much harder to make as they try to replace them with equally or even more effective ingredients.

My all-time favourite and surprisingly 100% vegan brand is Aesop, which I found out it’s fully vegan after a thorough research as they don’t market themselves as such, although they are.
It’s one of my most trusted companions since 2014 and can definitely vouch that their products are very researched and of great quality. 
Their Parsley seed range is phenomenal and I recommend it for people with stressed skin. Price point wise they are not very affordable, but the formulas are reflecting the price.

Another one of my favourite skincare brands is Facetheory as it’s very result driven and uses a lot of good formulas to target many common and not-so-common concerns. They have their normal ranges and their PRO range, which uses more potent ingredients. 
The price point can be quite low for some products starting at 4.99£, but as they get more advance they can reach 30-40£ mark. Use code BBNASGANEV for 20% off on their website. 

Another vegan brand is KYLIE skin, which would be a good start if you don’t have any major concerns and your skin is young. Her products give a good moisture boost, but not many anti-ageing properties. 
The eye cream is probably my favourite product from the range and it shows great results, but other than that the range is not result-driven.

Similar can be said about Monday Muse, with their potent Daily Serum and Vitamin Facial Oil. They have only launched these two products, which feel and smell amazing, but are they building a whole routine? 
If you are quite minimal with your routine or you like to incorporate different luxury vegan brands, I’d highly recommend these. Price point starts at 28£ for the 15ml bottle and goes up to 40£ for the 30ml. 

Below is my list of 11 of the most luxurious vegan skincare brands…

Hey guys, 


Welcome back! Recently I have seen a boom in vitamin ads and whatnot, and the thought of taking multiple pills every day scares me. Some you even need to take twice or three times a day! Imagine what would that do to your kidneys with all the different chemicals they mix them...


My Feel MultiVitamin Journey.




I decided to try some of them and I researched a couple of different brands. After going through all ingredients and potency of vitamins, I decided to give Feel Multivitamins a try for a month and see how I like them. 


They are non-GMO and vegan friendly and contain no colorants, bulking agents, or fillers, which makes them ideal for my dieting.



Although they claim you notice a difference in four weeks, I can guarantee you that after two weeks of taking them now, I feel absolutely fantastic. Not only my mood has improved, but also my energy levels and skin have noticeably changed (for the better). 



I tend to take two of them every morning with food as it helps to aid with absorption. 



What makes these ones so special?



Feel multivitamins are vegan, allergen-free, gluten-free, halal, kosher, and non-GMO. The capsules are made in the UK and contain 33 ingredients, a mixture of vitamins like biotin, folic acid, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K together with minerals (notably calcium, iron, and selenium).


The reason for seeing results so fast with them is that Feel multivitamins have a patented ingredient called Bioperine, which is clinically proven to boost the bio-availability of nutritional compounds. It also significantly increases the absorption of nutrients and that way the capsules are more effective, allowing you to see faster results.


These multivitamins also contain a variety of powerful antioxidants as the Reishi mushroom, Turmeric, and Grapeseed extract, making it perfect for people living in the city. For cell renewal and protection, they have included Alpha Lipoic Acid, Citrus Bioflavonoids, and L-Glutamine.




Something else that impressed me is that they are 100% sustainable and use fully recyclable paper packaging.


The ordering process is also very easy – you simply go on their website, create an account, and start your subscription. They have made it simple and straightforward.


Like they say on their website:


“Let us help you find the right multivitamin to keep you active and healthy by delivering a product that contains the best nutrients that science has devised in the easiest and most intuitive way possible.”



The research.



Their formulas are backed by over 500 clinical papers, which are available on their website and I personally went through to verify it’s true. Each clinical paper covers 1 or more of their ingredients and it’s a lovely read through (if you have the time)


It’s Vegan & Cruelty-free Peta approved and it’s tested and certified by Eurofins, which definitely influences the decision of a lot of people, including mine.




The Cost.


Overall, I think for the benefits and the conscious effort to be an ethical and sustainable company, Feel Multivitamins work out extremely affordable at 40p a day.



Feel have essentially reinvented vitamins by offering a monthly subscription service in a biodegradable pouch via free letterbox delivery for just £11.95 a month which can be paused or canceled very easily.
