Are you trying to make more mindful choices with your beauty and personal care products? Me too. So I’ve rounded up a few of my favourites from the Thoughtful Choices at Shoppers Drug Mart lineup, a newly curated selection of products that are cruelty-free and mindful of the planet. It’s nice to see that a growing number of brands are embracing important factors like environmentally friendly packaging and sustainably sourced ingredients. And of course I love that I can find a growing range of conscious beauty options as near as my local Shoppers store.
I’m always on the lookout for a great anti-aging serum, and this one feels so luxurious. The plant-powered, vegan formula is designed to strengthen skin and help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles while improving texture, tone and radiance (its clinically proven to strengthen skin’s barrier function). It’s also free from ingredients like parabens and phthalates.
Did I mention I’m a fan of serums? This is another great option if you are looking to visibly improve the look of wrinkles and help smooth your skin. The vegan formula is made with naturally derived ingredients like bakuchiol (a natural retinol alternative) and energizing olive leaf extract.
Honestly, this is a great summer summer moisturizer to cool and hydrate thirsty skin. It’s from celeb Jessica Alba’s clean beauty line, and I’m interested to try more of their products based on my experience with this cream. The moisture-release formula is designed to help firm your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines – and it’s vegan, cruelty free, made with ethically sourced ingredients.
When my skin is looking good, my smile should too! This toothpaste is made with activated charcoal to polish, clean and whiten by removing surface stains, and freshen your breath too. This is a new essential for my travel toiletry bag.
If you think natural deodorant can’t be effective, you haven’t tried this one. It works, and the coconut & vanilla variety smells like summer. The vegan formula is cruelty free and aluminum free, with no sulfates or parabens. Another addition to my travel kit!
Have you tried any of these products? There is such a wide assortment in the Thoughtful Choices at Shoppers Drug Mart lineup. I also spotted the ZERO 100% Natural Night Cream from one of my favourite plant-based skin care brands, ZERO by Skin Academy (now in Canada exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart). And I’ve got my eye on the NUXE BIO Glow Rich Moisturizing Cream next…so much to choose from, and products I can feel good about using.
These products were #gifted by Thoughtful Choices at Shoppers Drug Mart, but all opinions are my own.
