A Cruelty Free Skincare Routine

By Sophie R - June 17, 2018

I've mentioned a couple of times this year already that I have been trying to go cruelty free with my makeup and skincare, so when the people at Green People offered to send me some of their Organic Young range to try out I jumped at the chance to be able to try out some different skincare which has also been a goal to do this year to try and find something that works amazing on my skin and deal with how complicated it can be to look after.

So one month on from receiving the three products in the mail, I'm here ready to give you all an honest review on how my skin has been doing while using the products as well as dealing with its usual troubles of acne, hormones and so on.

My routine starts off with the Clear Skin Foaming Face Wash, that is once my face doesn't have any makeup on it which has been the case most days at the moment since I've not been wearing much makeup. The face wash contains tea tree which we all know is great for those who suffer from acne as well as willow bark which is not something I've had in skincare products before. I must admit the smell of this face wash was not overly pleasing but after a while, I got used to it. This face wash definitely gets points for not breaking my skin out any more than my hormones are doing but it doesn't make any drastic changes to my skin either.

Once my face is cleansed and I've applied the Superdrug vitamin e hydrating mist I move onto the OY Clear Skin Cleansing Moisturiser. Moisturisers get a thumbs up from me if they don't break me out, don't make my skin more oily and don't leave my skin feeling tight, this ticks all those boxes. Again the scent is an odd one, but considering it's almost 90% organic it's kind of expected.

Now the final part of this routine and my new favourite product is the Clear Skin Purifying Serum. I've never had a serum be part of my skincare routine before for the fear of making my skin more oily, but since reevaluating what type of skin I have I'm becoming more open to trying different types of products. I apply this serum to problem areas, and though it is hit or miss if a pimple actually reduces in size greatly I've found every morning that a pimple has reduced in redness, which is what the tube says so all is good here.

All these products are aimed at sensitive skin, which I'm thinking my skin is more than oily now, and I can definitely say they haven't irritated my skin at all, as well as being aimed at teens.

As the post title says they are all cruelty-free and are also vegan which gets ticks in my book.

What other products should I test out in my skincare routine? Any products that made any drastic improvements to your skin?

  3. I’m also trying out the OY products at the moment and it’s inretesting to read your experience on their range and how to differs to mine. I would highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend the Pixi Glow Tonic! I’ve been using it since March and it makes a HUGE difference to the texture and glowiness of your skin, don’t believe me? Get a mini and give to a go

  5. I love that this brand is cruelty free, it really is great how companies are trying to down this route now. There's still some way to go but it's going in the right direction atleast. These products sound really good, I have quite oily skin myself so I do wonder how good they would be for me!

  7. Superdrug own brand products are my go-to for cruelty-free skincare. But I do love Green People. I have their toothpaste in my bathroom, haha.

    The single most amazing thing I've ever used is Superdrugs B. Pure Micellar Oil and Figs+Rouge HA+ Hyaluronic Acid Cream. That stuff is GOLD.
