Five best organic, vegan skincare & self care products
January blues, anyone? We hear you!
Time to schedule in a little vegan skincare, and bit of self care. We have five gorgeous all-vegan treats to help you through. Products from the UK vegan skincare brands, to relaxing natural scents, to the perfect vegan cosmetics gift set.
Frantic lives, jobs, families, social lives take their toll on us and we need to build in quiet time, and not get distracted by other life stuff. Time to ‘heal’ your mind, your heart, your nervous system is the key to self care.
Here’s five of our best organic, vegan skincare and self care treats for you weary January souls to feel good about!
1 Embrace loving vibes with Hoof & Paw's vegan Rose Quartz crystal candle
Hoof & Paw is 100% vegan and handmade candle brand made in the UK. Their rose quartz candle uses organic sandalwood, ylang-ylang and black pepper essential oils to infuse your space with beautiful natural fragrances.
A Rose quartz crystal, embedded in the candle, is an emotional healing crystal - and also known as the crystal for universal love. Its energy is said to promote love, self-love, friendship, mother-love, and kindness. Pure positivity for your mind, body and soul
It smells divine and comes in a mini travel size too! You can take the love vibes anywhere with you.
Top tip: Add a little guided mediation
For total relaxation, we recommend one of Hoof & Paw’s gorgeous vegan candles along with a guided mediation. Perfect quick meditations you don’t even have to think about (as there’s usually a silky voice talking you through 10 minutes of sheer bliss and atmospheric music).
2 Invest in some quality vegan skincare with Kathy Sue Ann’s Citrus or peppermint lip balms.
We said we would look after our skin in 2023. Go clean, go vegan. Promises, promises.. But, if your banking app is saying no - go small .. but go quality! If you're looking for one the best affordable vegan skincare brands, Kathy Sue Ann's range has some beautiful vegan skin care products.
And her dreamy, melty lip balm is a small investment with a big return. In our lovely UK winter weather (think howling wind, biting cold, very wet rain if you’re elsewhere!) our lips take a battering. Get this, apply to lips and smile through January.
What's not to love
- Dreamy, melt on your lips formula

- Super nourishing in winter and summer
- Rich organic essential oils (lemon, sweet orange, peppermint)

3 Create an atmosphere of calm with organic and vegan home scents
Moody, us? Yep!
Our mood is deeply affected by our senses. Our olfactory sense (that's smell to you and I ..) is arguably the deepest of all .. smells can cue memories and set our mood. So, make a point to fill your environment at home or work with natural, organic scents and essential oils that will add to your overall sense of well-being and calm.
For instant, lasting vegan home scents, we love all things Made By Coopers who describe themselves as “a modern apothecary crafting natural and organic products for your skin and soul” (we just love this!)
Delicious all natural home scents
Their Calm Room mist is a natural, organic and vegan best seller. It’s like a warm spring breeze on a winter day. The blend of organic essential oils instantly brings a refreshing scent and calming energy into a room. This gorgeous scented mist spray combines calming lavender, bergamot, ylang-ylang, rosemary and frankincense essential oils.
It’s 100% natural so you’re not breathing in anything suspect! The gentle natural formula can be sprayed on pillows for a dreamy sleep. With lavender to relax body and mind, this is perfect if you’re feeling stressed or anxious.
