Supermarket finds - cruelty free beauty


I am constantly in pursuit of cheap but good quality cruelty free beauty products. I think there are loads of good high end finds out there that those of us that believe in buying cruelty free will pay for. However until cruelty free becomes the norm and I can walk into a shop a buy something without reading the label then it will still be a problem.

So when I visited my local supermarket Morrisons I picked up there own brand products to try out. It's a bit of a double edged sword as there is always the argument that if the supermarkets start to really sell EVERYTHING then we will stop buying local or being forced to look further afield, however for the moment the fact that they are selling these products that are cruelty free I'm going to be happy about.

So let's dive in....

The first products I picked up where the shower gels and I got Oriental Fusion, Nourish and Moisture Bliss. I love the names first of all, they contour up different senarios for each one. 

They are all very different smells so the Oriental Fusion is very fruity, the Nourish smells a bit like a pudding with the honey and the Moisture Bliss smells like fresh washing. 

So far I would say that I do like them, they are a little runnier than some more expensive brands do I will end up using them faster however they are very creamy and still good enough to use got shaving my legs. Given the cost I would reccomend these, they were very inexpensive at 75p each.

Next I've got face wipes which if you have read any of my blogs before you will know I'm still not sure how good wipes are for my skin but I do like to try different ones and they are very convenient. These stand up well to the more expensive brands and even some of the Miceller water wipes. I did get the sensitive ones to be sure. All in all I would buy these again.

It is a bit of a debate - to supermarket or not to supermarket and I have to be honest and say that on the surface I am a fan of supermarkets to shop in but I am trying to make an effort (butchers for my boyfriend, local grocers) but there's still a long way to go.

I hope you enjoyed reading.
