  6. I have to get that palette from Sleek again. I had it two years ago and I loved it. And now I really wanna try the micellar water from Superdrug. Does it remove all makeup without any issues? Or do I need to use something else to get rid of the makeup first? 😊

    1. Removes all makeup with no issues lovely. πŸ’œ

  7. I've have been trying really hard this year to make all my products cruelty-free. Lush is great if you are also trying to not have packaging as well! Love this post! x

  13. I don't think I've tried any of these specific products before! Love Soap & Glory as a brand in general though x


  14. I love Superdrug own brand for cruelty free products - I love how affordable it is and that an own brand is cruelty free.

    I'm surprised to see the Nivea lip balm though because I didn't think they were a cruelty free brand and I've not seen the Cruelty Free logo on them?
