• Decluttering my makeup collection from non cruelty free products and empties from the past few months! As I have recently converted to being 100% cruelty free with my makeup and cosmetics I am currently having a clear out from non cruelty free brands and trying to use up as many products as I can and also selling some others or giving some away to family and friends. I just thought I’d do a little round up of all my empties from the past few months. Some are cruelty free and some aren’t – those which are cruelty free will be marked with a *. These are all from brands and products which I have grown to love and can’t imagine living without but those that aren’t cruelty free I am slowly discovering brands which are cruelty which have dupes of these products and those that are cruelty free I will definitely be repurchasing. If you would like to see more of these empties posts, let me know in the comments below.  

    CRUELTY FREE EMPTIES (that I will definitely re-purchase)
    *Urban Decay B6 Facial Prep Spray – A brand new favourite in my skincare routine. I love spritzing this over my entire face to help wake myself up and it also helps control oil, reduce redness and pores. 
    *Urban Decay De Slick Travel Setting Spray x2 – My all time favourite setting spray to help reduce oil and mattify my face. 
    *Urban Decay All Nighter Travel Setting Spray – Another all time favourite setting spray to help make sure my makeup lasts all day. 
    *LUSH Enzymion Facial Moisturiser – One of my favourite moisturisers for my oily skin. The lemony smell and ingredients helps waken up the skin and make it feel fresh and less sluggish. 
    *Burts Bees Nourishing Mango Lip Balm – My favourite lip balm that I apply before my lipstick or lip product. It really helps moisturise my lips and makes them feel soft and smooth.
    * Kueshi Pure & Clean Facial Toner – A toner I received in a Glossybox and I have literally fallen in love with it. I used to use the Benefit Moisture Prep Toner but this has been my favourite and this has replaced it by miles. 
    * First Aid Beauty Vitamin Hydrating Mist – Another favourite prep spray to work along side my Urban Decay one. This is filled with lots of skin loving vitamins and is perfect if you have sensitive skin. 
    * The Pro Hygiene Makeup Brush Cleaner Spray – One of my favourite brush cleaning products to help kill bacteria that gets on your makeup brushes. The Pro Hygiene Collection cleaning products are all cruelty free and all help kill bacteria on your brushes. 
    * First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy Eye Cream – I used to love using the Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream but since they aren’t cruelty free I have been trying to find a good alternative. This has definitely replaced it with a slight tint in it to help reduce and cover dark circles. 

    DE-CLUTTERING OF NON CRUELTY FREE PRODUCTS
    Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer – This was one of my favourite concealers that I used under my eyes and I’m really upset that Rimmel aren’t cruelty free as they are one of my favourite drugstore brands and I’m now on the hunt to find a CF alternative. 
    Benefit POREfessional Mini Primer x2 – My favourite primer that was perfect for my oily skin and large pores and now I’m on the hunt for something to replace it, I definitely think my W7 Porefection primer could be the one to replace it. I had to use up these travel sized ones to get rid of them. 
    Carex Bubblegum Hand Sanitiser – My favourite hand sanitiser that I’m really sad it isn’t CF. It smelt amazing and helped clean my hands but now I’m using the The Pro Hygiene Collection one which I’m loving at the moment. 
    Benefit Total Moisture Moisturiser – This was my favourite moisturiser when my skin had it’s odd dry moments from my spot treatments and my rosacea. 
    Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – One of my favourite mascaras that really helps curl and make my eyelashes look longer but I think I have found a great dupe and alternative with the PUR Big Look Mascara. 
    Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara – This was just a random purchase but I kind of liked it so I’m quite sad that this isn’t cruelty free. 
    Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara – Again another random purchase as I really like the Wake Me Up range with Rimmel minus the foundation so I’m going to look for an alternative for this mascara. 
    Benefit They’re Real Mascara – Another favourite mascara from Benefit which I’ve found an alternative and dupe for in the W7 Absolute Mascara which is literally a dupe for this mascara. 
    Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Cleansing Foam – One of my favourite skincare products which really helped my skin when my breakouts were so bad and I’m really sad Clinique aren’t cruelty free as they are so huge in the skincare industry but I think I’ve found a good alternative in the Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser although it isn’t a skin clearing one. 
    Benefit Speed Brow Gel – My favourite brow gel that I loved using to set my brows in place so I’m on the hunt for one to replace it, I’m definitely looking into the W7 or Urban Decay Brow Gel.
