My Favorite Vegan Skincare Products
Hello everybody! If we have not yet met, my name is Mikka Roque-Jacobson, the owner and product-maker of Raw byRoque. I strive to embrace all the bounties that nature has to offer, living an all-natural, vegan & cruelty-free lifestyle. If you haven’t yet, check out Raw’s ‘About Us’ page to get to know me and my shop a bit more.
This is not just a place for you to shop for vegan products, but to also know more about a Vegan and Christian lifestyle through my journey which I share every other week through our blogs and my YouTube Channel.
I am so excited to share with you my favorite skincare products, which I use on a daily basis! These products are vegan and cruelty-free, so they are 100% safe and recommended for everyone to use, not just vegans! I personally love these products because not only do they do wonders for my skin, but they also contribute to protecting our Mother Earth.
Here’s a peek at my favorite vegan facial skincare products!
When removing make up, I tend to stay away from wipes, as they tend to dry my skin out and creates more waste. Which is why I love using this brand’s makeup remover balm! It is a blend of grape seed, olive oil, sea-berry oils and a lot of other good stuff that leaves my skin clean and not dehydrated.
This balm melts as you scoop it out and melts even further as it comes in contact with your face, making it super easy and effective to remove makeup. Even my waterproof mascara is no match for it!
This plant-based cleanser is my go-to after removing all the gunk off my face. I love that it’s made from simple premium ingredients like Jojoba Oil and Organic Coconut Oil. The Lemon & Geranium Essential Oils give off a clean citrusy scent, leaving my skin refreshed, soft and glow-y. Another perk, this is very affordable and is convenient to purchase being available in grocery stores!
This product is one of my favorites, and I love that it’s in powder form! The fine green tea and baking powder partially dissolve when it comes into contact with water, leaving it with even finer granule doubling as a gentle exfoliator. It is mild, non-abrasive, and super hydrating, my skin always feels fantastic after a wash.
This sponge is definitely a worthy investment, and you can find it anywhere online (even on this site!) The natural fibers stimulates blood flow, are extremely gentle on skin and detoxifies while promoting skin renewal. Simply hydrate the sponge using warm water, and it’s ready to use by itself or with your favorite cleanser! I use this when I’m in the shower and wear it as a bracelet, so it absorbs the water activating the sponge. When it’s soft, I then use it to cleanse and gently exfoliate my face with or without a cleanser.
This toner is 77.78% rice extract made from the best Goa Rice grown in Yeoju, Korea. It has a dual layer of water and emulsion, so you need to shake well before use. I personally love just tapping the product on my face, but you can also use a cotton pad! After use, my skin always feels smoother and more elastic.
What I love about these plant-based face masks is that they fit perfectly on the curves of my face, they are thinner, while still having a lot of product than most others. Each sheet contains fine essence particles that are more easily absorbed into your skin. And depending on your needs, you can choose from their 3-type essence: serum, emulsion, and jelly! Depending on your needs they have 10 kinds of masks with different flowers and different types of essences you can choose from: serum- which feels light and is great for moisturizing, emulsion- which looks milkier and is best for deep hydration and firming, and jelly- which is more like gel and is soothing like aloe vera.
7. Aloe Vera
Unlike the other products, there isn’t a specific brand here I wanted to recommend. Just make sure you get 100% pure preferably organic aloe vera. Aloe vera is an extremely versatile ingredient with wondrous properties that you can literally use on your whole body! From treating sunburns, infections and acne, to fighting aging and inflammation, you name it! For me, I like to mix it with some melted Babassu Oil to make my nightly Sleeping Mask. Babassu oil is rich in fatty acids and anti-oxidants making it a great skin conditioner. You can use it on your face to improve skin texture and reduce the bacteria that cause acne. You can get Aloe Vera basically any where, from your local grocery to a fancy Asian cosmetic shop.
Our lips need a lot of maintenance, they get dry and chapped easily even when you’re just slightly dehydrated. Which is why once a week I like to use my Raw byRoque lip scrub (yes, my own brand!). The fine sugar granules and hydrating oils lifts off dead skin while moisturizing my lips, making them super soft and plump. Our sugar lip scrubs are made with Fair Trade Organic Ingredients like Cane Sugar, Organic Brown Sugar, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Babassu Oil, Grape Seed Oil.. to name a few! This one has a smidget amount of Peppermint Essential Oil leaving your lips refreshed and supple.
To finish up my routine, I love using the tinted lip butter from my store. There are 3 different scents, but my preferred one right now is Cozy Kisses, which is gingerbread and French toast flavored! The buttery ingredients nourish my lips and leave them with a satin finish. The product is absorbed by your skin and doesn’t flake off. Since it doesn’t get sticky, you can reapply it as often as you want! This has been one of my favorites because not only does it condition your lips, but leaves a very natural and effortless peachy pink tint.
All these products mentioned, including Raw byRoque’s are certified cruelty-free and vegan by PETA. Find their list of certified brands right here.
Vegan cruelty-free beauty products are a whole new world, and I’m still exploring them! Their range and benefits definitely do not lose out to other non-vegan products and I can’t recommend trying them out enough. We would love to know your favorite vegan skin-care products in the comment section below!
I also have a video on YouTube where I talk about all this in more detail. Head on over here to check out the video!
