Lately it’s hard to find good inexpensive make up brushes, now a days a full set from Sigma Beauty cost $500 which is RIDICULOUS! But, you still have good brands like Morphe which are half the price of a Mac brush and same quality as a Mac or Sigma brush. But, for people who are about cruelty free brushes here’s a brand that is amazing! It’s easy to find synthetic makeup brushes, but not always easy to find GOOD QUALITY cruelty free makeup brushes! I recently had the pleasure of trying out the entire new range of PUR Minerals vegan brushes, and I am happy to report that these are top notch! Oftentimes synthetic brushes will be either too harsh or way too soft. Soft sounds good, but trust me – brushes can be soft, BUT they have to be densely packed enough to do their jobs. If the brushes are too soft and not packed well, they will splay out on your face and you won’t get the pigment where you want it. PUR makeup brushes are soft, but packed tightly, which is perfection!

I probably don’t have to tell you that removing your makeup morning and night is extremely important for beautiful skin! I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t always have time clean my face especially at night when all I want to do is crash into bed for some beauty sleep! Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes are ideal for every face, because there are several to choose from. These towelettes are perfect because there is a product for every skin type, and they are great at removing makeup, cleansing and toning all in one so your money does come a long ways worth. I have a love affair with Burt’s Bees towelettes for a few reasons. The first one is of course because they are cruelty free. You can find lots of face cleanser wipes out there, but it’s extremely important to me to find a brand that does not test on animals. And, what’s even better is that you don’t have to special order these cleansing wipes. I also carry these with me in my luggage every time I travel (the travel size wipes are perfect for your carry-on bag). They are good for avoiding gross situations on the and of course, to use in my hotel room when I don’t have a lot of time to spend on my regular facial routine (no rinsing needed).
