Vegan Beauty Review

18 Jul

We Love Vegan Beauty Review! Check out what they had to say about Pin Up Cosmetics.


I love discovering new vegan beauty brands (hence VBR’s vbr-y-ness), and when I find products that are handmade and local, I get extra tingly, warm fuzzies. This is the case with Pin Up Cosmetics, an SF-based artisan natural and vegan beauty line with a twist of retro glamour.

Pin Up Cosmetics are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and non-toxic (free of parabens, synthetic ingredients and harmful chemicals). You can find these cutely packaged goodies in health food stores (like select Whole Foods), boutiques, salons and specialty stores in the US and overseas.

The goods (the ones that I’ve tried, at least):

Refresh-Lavender & Grapefruit Serum – I’ve said it a kazillion times on my blog, and I’ll say it again (because I care about your beautiful, youthful mugs), dont wait until it’s too late to regularly moisturize yo’ face! Don’t do it! If I had known better, I would have been slathering beauty oils on my face in utero. ;) The only way to keep skin supple and soft (aside from staying out of the sun, not smoking cigarettes, and staying hydrated, etc.) is to MOISTURIZE. Seriously, I slather 3-4 different beauty oils on my face before bed (after cleaning my skin), and this serum has definitely made its way into my beloved collection of nighttime beauty essentials. You just need to smooth a few small drops over your face after cleansing (regularly) to enjoy the benefits. This serum doubles up as aromatherapy, too! This refreshing and calming blend of essential oils is perfect for rebooting and relaxing my busy, monkey mind. ;)

Vegan Cleansing Grains – First of all, LOVE the scent of this cleanser. It’s got oatmeal, kaolin clay, lavender, chamomile, and peppermint, so it smells fresh and floral, earthy and raw. Just mix a teaspoon of product with a little warm water, blend into a paste, and work into your skin. It’s a great way to slough off dead skin cells, dirt, grime, etc.

Which vegan beauty products do you use as part of your nighttime regimen?

Do Try This At Home!

Steaming should absolutely be a part of your regular facial regimen. The process allows toxins to exit pores, softens skin and preps your face for nourishment.

Step 1: Wash your face with your favorite Pin Up cosmetics Vegan Cleanser. Follow up with Pin Up Cosmetics Vegan Cleansing Grains or Tea Cleansing Grains

Step 2: For the over-the-stove method, bring water to a boil in a large pot. Remove and place in an area where you’ll be able to comfortably lean over it.

Step 3: If desired, add pure essentials oil to your water. Three to five drops should suffice. To soften dry skin, add rose. For combination skin, add balancing grapefruit. For acne issues, add tea tree oil.

Step 4: For the over-the-stove method, place a large towel over your head. And place your face 5 – 10 inches away from the steam. DO NOT place your face incredibly close, because you risk burning or causing your skin to swell. Do five 2-minute steaming sessions and allow your face to breath for a few moments in between each session.

Step 5: If you want to go right to your moisturizer, apply a few splashes of cool water following your steam to close your pores. Smooth on your Pin Up Cosmetics Rose Petal Face Cream to seal the deal.

The Beauty Benefits of Roses

26 Mar

We already instinctively entwine roses with notions of beauty and love. It seems only fitting then that roses actually do offer beauty-enhancing benefits. This iconic flower specifically does beauty wonders on the skin.

In distilled forms, roses have been included in cosmetics, medicines and therapeutic treatments for centuries. Rose essential oil has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties, making it ideal to topically treat a host of ailments including abrasions, burns and skin conditions.

Antioxidants: Rose contains high amounts of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. This important vitamin can help protect skin cells from damage, such as from staying out in the sun too long. Some evidence even suggests that rose water can help prevent sunburn.

Moisturizing: The natural oils found in roses help lock moisture into the skin, keeping skin feeling smooth. Rose is especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin because the sugars in its petals create a soothing feeling.

Try Pin Up Cosmetics wonderfully fragrant rose infused products such as our Rose Petal Face Cream, Rose Face & Body Vegan Cleanser and our Cleansing Grains.
