Holy Grail Cruelty Free Skincare

If you have been following me along on my blogging/youtube journey, you'll know that my skin has been through everything! It's been dry, oily, acne prone, and I also have a touch of rosacea. Now that I'm 22 my skin has calmed down quite a bit, but I noticed with the change of seasons, or stress it still acts up. 
A few weeks ago, once the temperature dipped to an even 30 degrees here in New York my skin was crying for help. My normally combination, but (now) manageable skin, was red, dry, and breaking out. The redness had to do with my rosacea, it does not respond well to changes in temperature or major changes in my skincare routine. Lucky for me about a week into my skin dilemma Coral Calcium sent me their Hawaiian Red Turmeric Gummies. I had heard that turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory and can help calm rosacea and other sorts of inflammation. These gummies are non-GMO, easy to digest, gluten, dairy and soy free. Turmeric can also benefit the immune system and arthritis. 
Now that I was treating my skin from within I looked to my medicine cabinet to begin working on the exterior. I had purchased Trader Joe's Blueberry Acai Facial Scrub a few months ago, just to try something new, but hadn't found that it did much aside from making my skin soft. I reached for it again this time, as I remembered how great blueberries were for inflammation, and since it gently exfoliates it seemed like the perfect choice. I used this daily (for about 4 days) until I saw a reduction in redness and dry patches. I kept using my trusty CBD for Life Cleanser as it is the most gentle and effective skincare product I've come across. 
As for moisturizer I've opted for Rose Hip Oil, I ordered this one from Aria Starr because it seemed like the best value. I use 3-4 drops after washing my face (usually twice a day, 3 if I went to the gym).
In more recent days I've gone back to using Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, paired with ACV as a mask and have seen a huge transformation once again. 
With these products I've been able to balance my skin back to its normal state. What are your all time favorite cruelty free products? Let me know in the comments below.
