Vegan Skin Care Haul

Vegan skin care products might as well be nonexistent if you don't search extensively for them. One can't simply take a trip to their local drugstore and purchase a face wash that hasn't been tested on animals. It's even harder to find a skincare product that doesn't contain animal derived ingredients, such as glycerin. Go ahead, take a look at the face wash you're currently using. Glycerin is a main ingredient, isn't it? Yup, I'm not surprised.
Now since I essentially typed out a whole conversation with myself, let's get to the haul.

100% Pure Blood Orange Shower Gel
I found this gem in Ulta, which was super surprising since this is the only vegan brand in all of Ulta. This product leaves my skin feeling super soft and it doesn't irritate my skin in the slightest. And, most importantly, the blood orange smell is fantastic. The price was a little steep, but there isn't much of a market for vegan shower gel, so it will suit.

The Fanciful Fox Blemish Stick
I've been using this Blemish Stick for the past week, and let me tell you, it's cleared most of my problem spots within the first 3 days. LOVE this.

The Fanciful Fox Complexion Bar Soap
My skin can go from one extreme to another over night, especially now with the change of seasons. This soap is PERFECT for those days when my face decides it wants to be oily. I only used this soap twice since I got it, but I already absolutely love it. My face felt super clean after washing and my pores looked remarkably clean. The smell is a little bit more on the natural side, but it's kind of growing on me.
Ps this product doubles as an antibacterial soup which is something I haven't had in my skin care regimen since before I turned vegan. Really happy about that.

JustTheGoods Face Wash
After searching far and wide through Etsy, I came across this brand and I am so glad I did. This face wash does exactly what it's supposed to do; wash my face. I've only used it two times since I got it (two days ago) and I'm already very happy with it.

JustTheGoods Acne Prone Skin Moisturizer
This moisturizer is my absolute favorite moisturizer at the moment. I love the scent and it leaves my face super soft. It's also supposed to help with acne so I can't complain.

About my Skin
My skin is every skin type bundled into one confused and sensitive face. I have very dry skin after washing my face, despite the fact that I nearly drown myself in all the water I drink in a day. I also have very oily skin towards the end of the day. I have a few breakouts every now and again, nothing extraordinary. My skin is super, super sensitive. I have some spots near my eyes that sometimes break out in eczema, so I can't experiment with harsh products at all. Using all natural and vegan products was probably the best thing I could have done for my skin, as the eczema has vanished and my breakouts have subsided.
