They say that beauty is skin deep – but when it’s vegan, we’d say it tunnels into the core of our being. That’s because vegan beauty is about caring for the planet and cherishing every animal that calls it home. There is much to celebrate, and that’s certainly what our members have been doing as they collectively review everything from mascaras to face serums, body lotions to hair conditioners. We have sifted through their reviews to celebrate the products our members love the most. These are truly worth including in any daily self-care regime. Together, we’ll make the world as beautiful as you.
