It's hard to believe we are in August already! But 2021 is flying by quickly and as we begin a new month, I wanted to share some fab skincare finds with my readers.

SHEGLAM Wild At Heart Collection

SHEGLAM recently partnered with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) to launch the Wild Heart Collection; a range of 100% vegan and cruelty-free make up palettes.

The new collection features 5 palettes and takes inspiration from the world’s most majestic and rare animals.  Each palette is packaged in FSC certified, 100% recycled materials that are also biodegradable. Plus, SHEGLAM will be making a donation of $50,000 on behalf of their customers to IFAW, which will go towards rescuing and protecting animals all over the world.

SHEGLAM Wild At Heart Collection

The 5 palettes are:

  • Viva La Leopard Palette
  • Flutter Effect Palette
  • Forever Feather Palette
  • Wolf Calls Palette and 
  • Fin Within Palette

Inspired by the icy colours associated with the Arctic Wolf, the stunning Wolf Calls Palette features a cool spectrum of blues and greys. The Fin Within Palette on the other hand takes inspiration from the tropical colours of the Pseudanthias Hawaiiensis fish and features a colourful spectrum of gorgeous pinks, blues and oranges. Both the palettes are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

I loved both the palettes for their beautifully pigmented colours. Both are great colourful palettes to experiment and get arty with.

grüum - skyda Daily Defence Lotion

Next up on my list is skyda Daily Defence Lotion (50ml, RRP £9) – a lightweight SPF 50 face lotion launched recently by British skincare brand grüum. The brand new formulation aims to keep your skin protected against the sun’s harmful rays, daily pollution and free radicals. 

Enriched with Vitamin E, the fragrance-free lotion has been dermatologist tested and is suitable for all skin-types, including those with sensitised skin. The lotion has a light-weight texture, is easily absorbed, water-resistant and works as an excellent base under make-up. It does not contain any synthetic fragrances or artificial colours and is also free from parabens, sulphates, SLS, EDTA and petrochemicals.

Apply it on your face and neck after moisturising and top up as needed based on the level of sun exposure. The product doesn't leave a white residue across the skin and helps prevent skin damage and hyperpigmentation that can be caused due to prolonged sun exposure.

A fab little find! You can pick up the skyda Daily Defence Lotion here.

PMD Beauty Silverpure™ Makeup Removing Cloth

Looking for an eco-friendly alternative to single-use make-up wipes and cotton pads? Then you must take a look at PMD Silverpure™ Makeup Removing Cloth. 

Infused with pure silver, the Silverpure™ Makeup Removing Cloth is anti-bacterial and made up of tiny microfibers that, when wet, cling to makeup and gently lift it from the skin. There is no need for make-up removers as all this cloth needs is water to get rid of makeup on your skin. Just soak the cloth in water, wring it out and then gently rub it over the skin in circular motions until makeup is completely removed. Easy clean without any chemicals or harsh ingredients.

PMD Beauty Silverpure™ Makeup Removing Cloth

The Silverpure™ makeup remover cloth is made with silver-infused polyester. The tiny microfibers in the cloth have been specifically designed to pick up even the smallest makeup and dirt particles while being gentle on the skin. And because it has silver infused in it, the cloth is anti-bacterial, so it won't harbour or spread bacteria.

I liked how soft the makeup removing cloth feels on the skin. Plus it is washable and reusable. It is a bit pricey at £28 but if you look at the number of packs of wet wipes being saved from the landfill, you will appreciate the product switch. Not only will you be reducing how much waste you create but the price also works out economical in the long run.

The Silverpure™ Makeup Removing Cloth is available from

Angela Langford Skincare - Sweet Cheeks Face Wash

My combination skin loves this face wash from Angela Langford Skincare. Made with Rose petals, Papaya, Cypress, Orange blossom & Witch hazel, this non-foaming & gentle face wash not only gently removes dirt and grime but also tightens pores and calms the skin.

All you need is a small amount applied to your damp face and neck and then gently massage it before washing it off with warm water. The face wash has a light-weight texture, smells gorgeous and doesn't strip the skin of its natural oils. It leaves the skin feeling fresh, clean and zingy with zero tightness afterwards.

Angela Langford Skincare - Sweet Cheeks Face Wash

You can use it as a daily face wash due to its gentle nature. I have combination, sensitised skin and it worked well for me.

If you are looking for natural skin care products that are cruelty free then do check out Angela Langford's website. Their product range is made with the best of natural ingredients and does not contain parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, colours or other skin nasties. They even have a 'skincare sample pack' personally picked by Angela, just for you & your skin. It contains three free samples worth £15.00 RRP - you only pay the P&P. This is a great way to try out their products.

The Sweet Cheeks Face Wash can be purchased from Angela Langford Skincare's website.

Delph Sun Lotion SPF30 and SPF50

If you are looking for a sun lotion that is prescribed by doctors for people suffering with medical conditions, will protect your skin from both UVA & UVB rays and is priced under a fiver, then Delph Sun Lotions are for you.

Delph products are based on the original Lemon Delph fragrance blended with a highly developed laboratory formulation, giving complete protection at the required sunscreen level and also offer great water resistance properties compared to other sun lotions.

Delph Sun Lotion SPF30 and SPF50

Available in 150ml tubes, both the SPF30 and SPF50 have a non-greasy formulation, are easily absorbed and are water-resistant offering 4-star ‘Superior’ Protection based on the UVA Star Rating System.

No matter what the season, if you are planning on spending time outdoors, you must protect yourself from the harmful UV rays and Delph's range of products are perfect for that.
