3 Favourite Affordable Eco-Fashion Brands

 

Reformation

I discover this brand one year ago or so and It is such a cool eco-brand. Reformation has lots of vegan options althought in a lot of products the content is unknow so you can´t be sure wheter a piece is vegan or not.

It is not as affordable as Everlane, the next brand on the list, but they´ve launched a new collection,Reformation Jeans, ideal for stock on basics;  jeans,dresses, sweaters,blouses,skirts and jackets. According to the brand one pair of reformation jeans saves an average of 1,468 gallons of water.

Everlane

This brand is spot on. With good quality basics with just one thing wrong.They don´t ship to the UK, yet! I really hope soon they will… I think their jeans are perfect and I´ve been keeping an eye on the black blazer.

“At Everlane, we want the right choice to be as easy as putting on a great T-shirt. That’s why we partner with the best, ethical factories around the world. Source only the finest materials. And share those stories with you—down to the true cost of every product we make. It’s a new way of doing things. We call it Radical Transparency.”

Kokoa Eco Beauty Salon: Review

 

I recently visited this salon and all I have to say about it is good. Great concept just what I was looking for: cruelty-free,vegan and eco-friendly. I had my nails done with Tam and my eyebrows treading with Salma. Both very professional and friendly. Treatments include massages and body exfoliation,pedicure,waxing and facials.

It all started with the owner Akosua Akobeng looking for more natural products to aplly on her face so she created kokoa, a range of  handmade skincare that is now available online.

The salon also offers fun workshops (next on 3rd December)where you´ll learn to make your own products(a natural liquid soap, bath bombs, an exfoliating body scrub and a moisturising butter) than you´ll later take home with you.

I can´t wait to attend one of their workshops and make Kokoa Eco Beauty Salon one of my favourite beauty salons in  North West.

#LILY ENGLAND

  

Recently I discovered this very affordable cruelty free vegan brand. Rose gold is the brand signature. In every product you´ll find a rosey glow! This is such a beautiful colour.

You have makeup brushes, hair brushes,beauty tools,makeup bags and even headphones. I would like to have everything. My first purchase is probably going to be the Manicure & Pedicure Set.Nail Care kit with Travel Case or/and the Brush Set.

What do you think about this colour? Will you buy anything from this brand?

Batiste Dry Shampoo

transferir (2)

I like to apply dry shampoo in the morning as part of my morning routine or after a workout when I don´t want to wash my hair that day( I don´t wash It everyday).It leaves my hair so fresh,clean and smelling  great! My favourite dry shampoos are from Batiste.

Note: ELLE Magazine,September,2017. “Using some dry shampoos daily can clog up your folicles, which prevents hair growth and leads to thinning. Vow to use them less frequently, and never more than once without washing in between(…)”

Is dry shampoo part of your beauty essentials? Let me know in the comments below.
