Hand + Body Moisturiser: our favourite cruelty-free picks
Oh these are a few of our favourite things...
all vegan & naturally-focussed of course.
Vere: Deodora Hand Balm
This is one of the most nourishing moisturisers we've ever tried,
and smells divine with its Mandarin, Cedarwood and Rosemary essential oils.
Vere products are produced in small batches in their Melbourne apothecary,
using only botanical ingredients.
Persian Rose & Argon Extract Hand Cream
This hand cream is deliciously rich,
and has an exquisite floral scent that makes you feel
calm and indulged with each inhalation.
Ingredients are certified organic botanicals,
and its packaging is heavenly rose-coloured.
It's size and shape also makes this moisturiser a perfect travel companion.
Sukin: Moisture Rich Body Crème
We love Sukin for making cruelty-free, environmentally-focused skincare accessible for all.
It certainly stays true to its clever double-meaning slogan of
"Skincare that doesn't cost the earth".
Regardless of its affordable price though, its products are great,
and we love using this body crème as an everyday moisturiser.
Aesop: Geranium Leaf Body Balm
It's no small wonder that Melbourne-based Aesop is now adored all over the world.
Its high quality, naturally-focused moisturisers are deeply nourishing,
and always deliciously fragranced.
Although its products are available online, there is nothing like walking into an Aesop store for an immersive, indulgent experience.
Plus, you often walk out with bonus samples in hand.
Castille de Fleur: Hand Lotion
Castille de Fleur, another Melbourne apothecary, use only 100% pure, sustainable, botanical essential oils to scent their products.
This means no synthetic fragrances are used whatsoever.
As well as moisturisers, it produces perfumes, candles and soaps,
which means a lot of effort goes into ensuring they smell fantastic.
This hand lotion is light, yet also quite nourishing,
and is absorbed quickly into the skin.
