HeartCoeur Cruelty Free Gift Guide and Giveaway

 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year-for those of us who love the holidays that is.

Living in Canada pretty much guarantees a white Christmas; the blankets of snow sparkle outside in silence as we visit with friends and family within.

Homes are filled with aromas of cinnamon, sugar cookies, and other amazing goodies made especially for the season.

I absolutely adore the Christmas season.

We look forward to cuddling under blankets while watching Christmas movie marathons about good will to everyone, and peace on earth. And while we often think about peace on earth for people, we tend to forget about the other earthlings that we share the planet with.

I personally am a bath, body, and cosmetics junky. I love giving and receiving natural body scrubs, oils, and lip balms.

Since we’ve been home for a few months I have had the chance to try out some new cruelty free products that I’m excited to share as they are great gifts, and no one was hurt in the making of them.

I recently discovered HeartCoeur-an online boutique dedicated to offering cruelty free vegan cosmetics, so I ordered a few products!

What’s amazing about HeartCoeur is that they have a movement called Charm Over Harm, where proceeds from every cosmetics sale on HeartCoeur.com are used to build safe, healthy homes for animals through their partnerships with farm sanctuaries and animal rights groups.

So let’s get started with my picks for some great gift ideas!!!

 

CAMP VANILLA MOON BODY OIL
This oil is beautifully and lightly scented with natural vanilla. It absorbs quickly, and leaves my skin looking so healthy.

I also add it to my bath and rub it into my damp skin. If you are a vanilla lover, this is a must.

 

MEOW MEOW TWEET BAR SOAPS
These high quality organic soaps smell amazing. The walnut sage is my favourite. They are very moisturizing and gentle on the skin. A perfect little stocking stuffer.

The tea tree eucalyptus is also a great scent for this time of year.

 

SUGARPILL ZILLIONAIRE LOOSE EYESHADOW TRIO
Although I usually tend to stay light and neutral with my makeup choices, it’s winter and that means deeper richer colours.

I LOVE the Hysteric eyeshadow in this trio. It is so vibrant and long lasting. This loose eyeshadow is highly pigmented for friends of animals.

 

AROMI MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK-FLAMENCO RED
There is nothing like beautifully painted lips, especially in red. Red lipstick is my happy colour. It is a classic colour that will never die, and good thing for that because  I  have been wearing it for years.

This lipstick goes on like a gloss and dries into a long lasting matte finish. Flamenco red is blue toned which is flattering on most every skin colour.

    Could you make me those cupcakes and hand-deliver, please? They look divine! =)

      Kristin, Sure!! Where do you want them delivered?

      It would give us a reason (Not like we need one) to visit somewhere new. 🙂

    I love this! I’ve switched to cruelty-free products (except when I’m traveling long term and don’t have access to certain brands…) and am always looking for new finds. Thanks!

      No problem Alex. They make such great products at affordable prices as well.

    Natural is good, there aren’t many products like these out there. Merry Xmas!

      Natural is always better Federico. 🙂 Hope you have a Merry X-mas and Safe holidays.

    I like the gifts with a conscience. By the way, I love that nose ring! Lovely eye makeup as well.

      Kristin, Thanks so much. I came across the nose ring on Easy and just had to have it!! 🙂
