Vegan beauty update: 10 New products we’re raving about 1

Not so long ago, it was pretty difficult to find vegan beauty products in pharmacies or retailers. Nowadays, major beauty brands all over the world are taking a vegan stance, reformulating products or releasing new products with the cruelty-free and vegan promise consumers have come to demand.

We’re thrilled to have such a wide variety of vegan beauty products to choose from. Here are some of our team’s favourite new launches.

Vegan fine fragrances are on the rise, and we’re here for it. This gorgeous tropical scent was inspired by Oscar de la Renta’s luscious gardens at this Punta Cana residence, and we’ll be wearing this dreamy fragrance all year round. It’s filled with gorgeous tropical notes like coconut water, ocean mist musk and pineapple fresca, florals like orange flower absolute and warm tonka bean and sandalwood. Plus, the bottle design is incredible! This is a true must-have in our opinion.

The Shower Gel and Body Butter combo leaves skin lightly scented, but most of all, soft, smooth and intensely nourished.
