Ruffle No Feathers Cruelty Free Beauty Mini-Series Part 1

Hello lovely! Today is the first in my cruelty free beauty mini-series - yippee!

I'm going to be featuring products that have been sourced only from BUAV (British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection) approved companies. 

The products are all from - the first, and only, online retailer in the UK to offer a wide range of various companies' products that meet the strict standards of the BUAV and in turn have been awarded the Leaping Bunny logo.

I champion Ruffle No Feathers because it's ran by Rebecca, a passionate and smart entrepeneur who is based locally to me. Rebecca maintains that even the beautiful packaging that her customer's products are sent out in is made from paper that is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified; made from sustainably managed forests and tissue paper that is 100% acid free recycled tissue paper - smart lady!

On to the mini series: Part 1, Amie New Bloom Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes.  
According to the product notes these fragrance-free wipes are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive.

They contain skin-friendly natural extracts of pomegranate, cranberry and green tea for clear, soft and radiant skin. They are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

These wipes have a really soft, pleasant smell and I have really enjoyed using them. They take off even the most stubborn of make up - which was a pleasant surprise. 

With make up wipes, I occasionally find myself running for the make up remover liquid to take the last parts of mascara or eyeliner off. But not with the Amie wipes. 

They are really soft on the skin and don't cause any irritation. They are free from parabens, mineral oils, petrochemicals and animal extracts. Awesome.

How to use them: Really simply just wipe them over your skin morning and evening whenever your skin needs a refreshing cleanse or to remove make up. After you've used a wipe, dispose of it in a waste bin in the proud knowledge that these wipes are biodegradable. Yay. 

I am very occasionally, I must admit, swayed by packaging. And I have to say that the packaging for these cleansing wipes is super cute. I'm always very proudly displaying them on my dressing table. Amie has really lovely branding. 

I would recommend these cleansing wipes to anyone. Especially if BUAV approved, cruelty free products are important to you or if you have particularly sensitive skin. (Or both!) 

You can find the Amie New Bloom Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes on the Ruffle No Feathers website, here.
Stay tuned for Part 2 of our cruelty free beauty mini-series next week!

Always Geek, Forever Chic,
