Plant based products I use regularly


I’ve had some people ask me what I use since I don’t use any cosmetics or personal care products that are tested on animals or have animal ingredients in them, So here’s some of my favourites!


I try to wear as little makeup as possible, but when I do wear makeup I always use Arbonne, they’re company is vegan certified, all cruelty free, really good quality and they aren’t owned by any other animal testing company. Their products are only sold in Canada, US, Great Britain, and Australia, and soon Poland I think? You have to get them from an independent consultant which I signed up to be cause you get 35% off! Doesn’t hurt right?

Pictured here is their creamy concealer in medium (its not very dark), makeup primer, mascara, and eye liner in cocoa.


Again I don’t always wear perfume because wear I work we’re not supposed to, but when I want to smell extra fruity I roll on some of this Pacific Perfume! This brand is based in Portland and so obviously it is vegan and cruelty free! PS to those that live in Portland, you are freakin lucky! They have a bunch of other products and different scents as well. 


I’ve always struggled with my face. I have oily skin and acne-prone skin, its great. Although I find my diet makes a big difference in my skin condition, I still like to treat it right on the outside. I love Arbonne’s Calm moisturizer because its gentle,soothing, not oily at all, doesn’t have SPF (which makes my skin oilier), and its non-comegenic (wont aggravate acne). Also from Arbonne is the SeaSource Detoxifying Rescue Wash, this product is pretty cool because you can use it on your face, body and hair even!! And its perfect for acne prone skin! I especially love using it after a really sweaty day. Now, the middle product in this picture is one made in my city (Victoria BC) called Nezza Naturals, and I use their Facial Cleansing Scrub once a day and its freakin awesome, its organic, all natural, plant based, and keeps my skin clear and smooth. 


You should know that I wash my hair with shampoo only about once a week, thats right, you should try it! Once you do you won’t go back. Anyways, again another Arbonne product featured here, the Sea Source Fortifying Hair Mask is something I use a few times a month to keep the ends of my hair healthy and smooth. The Loma Nourishing Oil Treatment is something my hair dresser got me hooked on, it used to be called Peratin in a gold bottle. Its perfect for the ends of your hair, especially if your prone to frizz and such, and you can use it on your skin, it also smells divine and is made with organic plant oils! 


Jojoba oil! I use this as a deep moisturizer for my face, chest, legs, and arms when I feel its needed, it soaks in better than coconut oil and is rich in Vitamin E. You can also put it in your hair but I would be very careful!


I don’t usually paint my nails but I got excited about this colour because its neutral and totally cute but work appropriate. Its by Gabriel and is vegan and cruelty free, this colour is called sand castle. It also is Formaldehyde, Toluene, and DBP free! I think most other nail polish’s contain those chemicals… ew. 


Lastly, I like to put all my essentials for the day in my cute Stella & Dot make up bag! Its made with faux-leather and the perfect size, fits my glasses case, tooth crush, makeup, contacts, etc. 🙂

  1. Love the products blog Hayley! I make my own deodorant and face wash which is wonderful as well as wash my hair once to maybe twice a week. I was curious with your hair mask, you use that for shampoo and conditioner? Right now I am using Lush products, which are great, but it is always fun to try new things 😉 Keep blogging gurl!

    • Hey thanks Rach! When i do shampoo my hair i use a few different shampoos depending on if i do it at work or home, but i make sure those arent tested in animals too, i just didnt bother including them cause i didnt feel they were essential. But the hair mask ill use after shampoo or even just get my hair wet, leave the mask in for a few minutes and rinse it out. I find i can get away without using shampoo for longer if i just rinse my hair with water and put in a little oil or conditioner a few times a week 🙂

  2. I love at onne I totally forgot it was vegan! Good to know you are a consultant! I use jamberry nail wraps and they are vegan and everything free! I love that Pacifica scent, I have the soap bar but never knew there was a perfume! They have those products at the market on Millstream in Langford! Great post, thanks for sharing! Another idea could be any ethical clothing choices you know of! Love getting new ideas from people that are tried and true before I spend the money!

    • Thanks Karley! I could definitely talk about some of my fav fitness wear and purses and such that are animal friendly or local and not made in asia! Im not very fashion forward but i can put out my 2 cents 😛
