ESP’s Health and Beauty columnist Emily Rawlinson brings you some kinder products worth adding to your beauty regime…
A little while ago I did an Instagram story poll and some of you mentioned featuring more cruelty free/vegan products so here are some suggestions of products I’ve tried….
We all know that makeup wipes are not the best method for removing makeup, however they can come in handy on those evenings when all you want to do is get into bed and rest after a long day. My go-to makeup wipes actually come from Primark! Not too long ago Primark launched their P.S Naturals range which is an eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty-free and affordable skincare range.
The makeup wipes cost £1 for two packs of 20 wipes. They are vegan, biodegradable (the packaging is recyclable) and are infused with green tea & chamomile meaning they are suitable for all skin types. I would definitely recommend giving these a try if you like using makeup wipes and it is just a small change which can help the environment if the current ones you use aren’t biodegradable.
Hair Perfection by Casey
Through my Instagram polls I came across Casey from Hair Perfection by Casey who informed me of her amazing vegan-friendly, cruelty-free hair care range which are also made with organic products, meaning no sulphates and parabens! Casey is local to Peterborough and launched Hair Perfection by Casey in 2019 and has been in the hair industry since the age of 16. Casey instantly fell in love, discovering her passion for healthy hair and making people look (and more importantly feel) truly special.
Casey says “My vision for the Hair Perfection by Casey range is to give people access to great haircare products which keep their hair feeling healthy and fabulous between hair appointments, in a brand with kindness at its core. All products in the range are vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, and full of kind and organic ingredients (no nasties like sulphates and parabens).
“I’m so inspired by the impact that healthy, luscious hair (and having that ‘truly-pampered-feeling’) has on people. The Hair Perfection by Casey range includes shampoos and conditioners to suit all hair types, as well as styling and care products ranging from deep conditioning treatments to heat protection hydration sprays, volume powders and sea salt texturing sprays. Everyone deserves that pampered feeling, and there is a product for every hair type and occasion!”
I was kindly sent some products by Casey from her range which she recommended for my hair type and I’ve been using them non-stop. If you’re not sure which products to try, drop Casey a message on her Instagram and she can recommend which ones will work best for your hair type. As I have blonde hair, Casey recommended the Hair Perfection by Casey Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner which is for everyday use and gently tones naturally blonde or chemically treated blonde hair. I’ve found in the past that the toning shampoos I’ve tried always dry out my hair but this combination has made my hair feel so soft and nourished while eliminating any brassy tones.
Casey’s favourite product
The Argan Oil Serum is hands down my favourite product from the range. This beauty has so many benefits and is so lightweight it’s perfect for every hair type!
The Argan Oil Serum is the perfect pick me up. It delivers instant shine and long-lasting rejuvenation. Argan oil naturally penetrates the hair to help moisturise each layer of the hair strand, for long term hair repair, leaving your hair looking and feeling healthier, silkier and beautifully shiny. The ultra-light formula helps to seal split ends and reduce frizz for the perfect finish. One of the key ingredients in my oil is Vitamin E which has powerful antioxidant properties, this also helps to reduce unnecessary stress on your scalp and protect cells from free radical damage, making it a key ingredient to promote healthy hair growth as well as moisturise and soothe the scalp.

KVD Vegan Beauty
KVD Vegan Beauty launched in Boots in the UK a few months ago and is a makeup brand dedicated to protecting animals through supporting charities and does not sell in countries where it’s legally required to test on animals.
They have a great collection of products to choose from including some perfumes which are all priced mid-range. They also have mini versions of their makeup and perfume meaning that you can try them first without paying the full price.
I’ve ordered some products from their range and I can’t wait to try them and give you my thoughts!
