LANEIGE- Cica Sleeping Mask- LANEIGE pride themselves on innovating women’s beauty routines across the globe, on their website they clarify that ‘LANEIGE does not conduct animal testing on cosmetics.’ They also ‘do not use animal-derived ingredients.’ Their Cica Sleeping Mask is formulated with gentle and hypoallergenic ingredients to soothe, repair and restore your skin. By using forest yeast instead of madecassoside, LANEIGE have created a product that tears apart the competition, giving you smooth, fresh and hydrated skin in no time. Intended to be applied before bed, by using the Cica Sleeping Mask you can wake up with skin that feels nourished and refreshed.
Benton- Aloe Real Cool Soothing Gel- Benton has been cruelty free certified by PETA and crafts plenty of vegan-friendly products such as this one. The Aloe Real Cool Soothing Gel from Benton harnesses the powers of its intensely hydrating ingredients to refresh and restore your skin. Infused with 93% Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, this is a gel that will leave your skin feeling better than ever before. The gel’s fusion of five botanical extracts cools and calms irritated skin, while its water-based nature means that the gel is easily and quickly absorbed into the skin. A non-sticky gel that can be applied anywhere, from your skin to your hair, the Aloe Real Cool Soothing Gel by Benton promotes a youthful glow.
Pyunkang Yul- Moisture Ampoule 100ml- both vegan and cruelty free, the Moisture Ampoule 100ml from Pyunkang Yul offers your skin a radiant glow by calming, soothing and hydrating your complexion.

Containing ingredients such as sh-Oligopeptide-1, Ceramide and Hyaluronic Acid, this is a formula that intensely moisturises the skin, leaving you feeling totally refreshed. At the forefront of Benton’s mission statement is the question 'how can we try to use less harmful ingredients?' so no wonder it is the perfect choice for those of us looking to achieve revitalised skin in a sustainable and ethical way.
