I am obsessed with skincare products. Honestly, if I needed to choose whether to buy new clothes or a skincare product, the skincare would win. Therefore, here is the list of my favourite vegan skin cleansing products which are also surprisingly-extremely affordable! Well, most of them 😉
Vegan Skin-Cleansing Products
It all starts with clean skin. Have you heard the expression? I cannot agree more with it.
I am a strong believer that no matter how much makeup you use if you have issues with the skin, it will show. I have very problematic skin. Starting with hormonal acne breakouts and to comedones (or whiteheads), I have it all. And I don’t like having tons of makeup on my face.
An interesting fact about me, as a teenager I didn’t have a problem with acne. However, a problem with comedones has been an annoying part of my life for many many years.
I have tried it all. Well, almost all. Microdermabrasion, regular visits to an aesthetician, diets… I haven’t tried a chemical peeling yet, and I will be happy to learn if you have had experience with chemical peelings and whether it was a good or a bad one.
Anyway, I am in a constant search for good and affordable skin cleansing products. And I also think there is no one “wonder” product out there.
Skincare is a complex and essential routine
But it doesn’t have to be complicated!
It has to be a complete approach that will include daily, weekly and monthly procedures to keep your skin young and beautiful!
However, please do not feel overwhelmed. I promise it can be a pleasant process 🙂
Tell me, don’t you enjoy a good facial with a great massage on your neck and shoulders? I do! But if you cannot afford regular monthly visits, there are still ways to care for your skin.
And there are simple and affordable products and tools which can help you to take care of your skin between the visits to an aesthetician if you do find time and budget for those.
My Favourite Daily Skin Cleansing Products
Morning Cleanser – you will probably think I am weird but this dual-purpose cleanser is actually made for men. However, I find it works wonders for my skin! I use it in the morning while showering as it gently exfoliates the dead skin and leaves it soft and smooth.
My older son loves it too. And my husband. If you are not ready to share the cleanser with your Man, just don’t tell him it is made for men 😉 On the other hand, it might end up on your monthly “essentials” list if he likes it too 😉
Evening Cleanser – this cleanser is gentle enough to not dry out your skin, and at the same time, it is strong enough to clean your make up without the use of a makeup remover. I don’t use waterproof makeup so the cleanser does its job perfectly to get the skin fresh and ready for the good night 🙂
I use two kinds of toners. Not because, as I said, I am obsessed with the skincare products, but because they have different features and act differently. You don’t have to have 2 but if you decide to get them both, you won’t regret.
Of course, everybody’s skin is different and it may react differently under various circumstances. Yes, even for the same person the skin might react differently to the same product in winter or summer time.
Therefore, I highly recommend introducing a new product one by one. This way, even if you get a reaction (irritation, breakout, dryness), it will be easier to know what product is to “blame” on.
Anyway, as I have mentioned, I use two products. One for the morning, and one for the night. If you haven’t marked your 30 yet, you may only need one. If you are closer to my age category, you may want a variety of products 🙂
These two are my favourite ones:
Morning Toner – This is a very gentle toner that I like using in the morning. It freshens your skin and gets it ready for the next step in your morning skincare regimen.
Evening Toner – I am not sure whether to start describing the great things about this cleanser with how actually good it is or its price tag. Seriously! Less than $10 for a good toner?! Send me 2!
By the way, you may want to order 2 so you know you have a stock of it as because it is so good it sells out pretty fast. Last time I had to wait for about 3 weeks to get it back in stock to be able to order it!
Anyway, you should only use this toner once a day (I do it at night time) and it is highly recommended to use sunscreen products during the day. I always recommend wearing a sunscreen anyway, so it doesn’t bother me or “adds” to my skincare routine 😉
Weekly Products and Tools
Once a week I indulge myself to even more “treats”.
Do you like the double-duty products?
Remember this cleanser from the top of my list? It has another great feature – it can (and should) be used as a cleansing mask as well! Just apply it to your face and leave it there for 10 minutes. After that, you can either simply wash your face as usual. Or use a wet sponge to wash it away massaging your face at the same time.
Let me know if you want me to make a quick video to show how I do it 😉
This is something I like doing to “hit” two purposes as well: cleaning and massaging the face. Did I tell you I am a skincare/massage addict?
Another product on my masks list is this purifying mask. It will leave your skin clean and glowing.
I am not kidding!
Unfortunately, it is on the pricier side. This is why I only use it once a week or two, and it lasts for a couple of months for me.
If I find a more affordable product (or if you have any suggestions for the product you love), I will update the list 🙂 I am always open to good suggestions!
By the way, there is another mask which I haven’t tried yet but I heard great reviews on, and it is now coming in a limited edition set. It is on my list of products to try. If you have used it, I will greatly appreciate if you leave your comments below!
Girls have tools too 😉
I have recently become a happy owner of this amazing set and I don’t know why I was waiting for so long to get it?!
It is a cruelty-free alternative to Clarisonic system. And it is ah-mazing! So easy to use. And you get a discount if you sign up for their regular brush-heads replacement service!
I use it once a week (or two) and I usually alternate it with the purifying mask.
The change in the skin is unbelievable! I haven’t gone for a microdermabrasion treatment for a long time now (well, life has been pretty busy lately) but I still feel like my skin is being pretty nourished and clean.
Speaking of the nourishment, I will be sharing a complete list of my favourite vegan moisturizers and creams in a couple of weeks. So, stay tuned! Or better sign up for my Vegan Lifestyle notifications if you don’t want to miss any of my vegan recipes or beauty posts 😉
Remember, you don’t have to be a vegan to use these products
By using them, you are not only doing great to your skin.
As I have mentioned, these vegan skin cleansing products are free of parabens, sulfates, and many other ingredients you don’t want on your face.
By choosing cruelty-free, you are making a change! A big change! You are saving millions of lives. I thank you for that!
