Earlier in the month I posted about why I have been moving to natural alternatives for my skincare, here if you want to give it a read. As a follow up, I thought it would be helpful if I did this month’s “Swaps” post on natural skincare. There are so many brands out there it has genuinely never been easier to make a change to natural, cruelty free products. While you may not want to spend a fortune changingΒ all of your products in one go, every time one runs out, replace it with a natural version. As always I have tried to include as many brands as possible for you below. Hope it helps!
