These brands have always delivered (from the ones I have bought early this year) and the smell is great as a skincare product which is vegan.

    What a really great list of vegan skin care products. I have been looking for a new face cream with an spf, do you recommend any? I live in Florida, so having an SPF is a must for me. Thanks!

  2. Ahearst

    Are these vegan skincare products suitable for guys too or they more suitable for women only? I wash my face daily with lady’s Clinique facial soap simply because there’s no Clinique facial soap for guys.

    If it’s available I like to try these vegan skincare products even though I am a second-hand vegan. ( that is, cows eat grass, and I eat cows, so that makes me a second-hand vegan )

      Lol that is very funny man.
      Basically all most of these products are unisex for your skin since they are not harsh to your skin. I would recommend check labels when you buy if it would say men or women
