Cruelty Free & Spooky| Cruelty Free Halloween Picks

As the fall weather rolls in I'm thinking more and more about everyone's favorite time of year-- Halloween! This month I was kindly gifted some spooky samples to review for you guys, and I'm really excited to share my thoughts.

People always ask me if it was hard narrowing down my beauty and skincare purchase to strictly cruelty free products. With a number of brands jumping on the cf bandwagon I never really felt limited in my choices. There are always tons of amazing brands to try, and I don't think I've even scratched the surface of what's out there. Then the huge k-beauty trend emerged and I felt a bit left out-- I was having trouble finding information on a lot of trending brands so I kind of just gave up on the trend.

Lucky for me JJ Young reached out about their charcoal line, and I was happy to find that they are cruelty free. JJ Young is my first review of a Korean beauty line, and I'm excited to share my findings with you!


After spending a lovely Sunday apple picking and eating apple cider donuts with my boyfriend I decided to test out the line.

First I tried the black cleansing stick. I used a micellar water to remove my makeup first, rinsed my face with warm water, and then rubbed the cleansing stick in circular motions in each area of my face. The cleanser lathered nicely and did not leave my skin feeling stripped. I think this would be a great cleanser to travel with or to throw in a gym bag. After rinsing the cleanser off with warm water, I followed' with a rosewater toner and facial oil. I think this would be great for a multitude of skin types.



Next, I tried the pore charcoal mud sheet mask. This mask was different than other sheet masks I had tried before. The mask came in two pieces, a lower and upper section. The mask left my skin feeling smooth and radiant, I think it also improved the appearance of my pores.

I also received an 'all in one soap'. The bar comes in a silk mesh pouch making it easy to lather the soap and also to exfoliate your skin. The bar can be used on the face, body and even your hair! I recently color treated my hair, so I have not tested it as a shampoo but I love that it's an option when I decide to go back to my natural color.

Do you have any cruelty free favorites for October? If so let me know in the comments!
