Vegan beauty in Veganuary
Veganuary! It’s everywhere – even here! Yes, there are loads of vegan beauty products out there. Probably loads more than you’d even think – but why would beauty products have loads of animal product in them?!
Anyway, I’ve been bombared with Veganuary press releases since, ooh, way back in October, maybe. So, I’ve picked a few vegan beauty products to share with you here.
