My Morning Skincare Routine - Vegan and Cruelty Free Edition


AD - PR Products

I always like to change up my skincare routine and try out different products but one thing remains the same - I always try and use products that are both vegan and cruelty free. 

I've never been very good at sticking to a skincare routine but over the past year I have learnt so much about building a routine and what works for me and now it has become part of my daily habits and self care. 

I was recently sent some products from Urban Veda - a UK based skincare brand which bases its philosophy on Ayurveda, a 5000 year old holistic health and wellbeing system originating in India, which focuses on the therapeutic properties of plants. This is why all of their products contain between 97-100% natural and organic ingredients and are free from toxins, parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate and GM ingredients. 

I've never really been sure what my skin type is and I feel like it fluctuates so I took the Urban Veda skin type quiz/Dosha test to find out. It told me my Dosha is Tri-Doshic meaning a combination that benefits from neutral products. The quiz then suggests recommended products and these were the products that were sent to me that are now part of my everyday morning skincare routine.


I start the day by washing my face with the Daily Reviving Facial Wash. The face wash is silky smooth and glides over my skin, leaving it feeling fresh, plump and hydrated. It has a beautiful floral smell of Rose Damask, Rose Geranium, Jasmine and Evening Primrose. 

I follow this up with a Soothing Hydrating Toner which really gives me a fresh feeling ready to start my day. This toner contains Sandalwood, Aloe Vera, Lavender and Ylang Ylang and, let me tell you, it smells incredible, so much so that sometimes I get a tiny waft of it throughout the day. 

To moisturise I have been using the Radiance Day Cream, containing a  fruity blend of turmeric, goji berries and papaya. My skin always feels so hydrated after using this, it's definitely going to be a go to moisturiser for me. I always ensure to complete my morning skin care routine by smoothing on a layer of SPF to protect my skin throughout the day. Even if it's not sunny, it's always important to wear SPF!

I've been using the Urban Veda products for around a month now and I can definitely tell the difference. My skin is less spotty, looks brighter and feels so much more hydrated than before and I achieved this all through my vegan and cruelty free skincare routine!
