My good friend Jennifer of My Beauty Bunny, a top notch cruelty-free beauty site, has developed a product of her own! Jennifer is extremely conscious of using natural ingredients and in collaboration with Nicki from FutureDerm has created a vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, sulfate free, synthetic dye free, synthetic fragrance free, petrochemical free, GMO free, Triclosan free moisturizer. In other words, all good-for-you-no-yucky-stuff!! This is in process for Leaping Bunny Certification too!
My Beauty Bunny Cruelty-Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer ($39) is an oil-free AHA moisturizer. With 5% alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) sourced exclusively from all-natural fruit acids, MyBeautyBunny All-Original My Beauty Bunny Cruelty-Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer is a healthy way to get beautiful, smooth skin daily. It’s made with an original blend of soothing aloe, toning witch hazel, moisturizing squalane (from olives), bilberry fruit, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange fruit extract, lemon fruit extract; and antioxidants: camellia oleifera (white tea), camellia sinensis (green tea), and aspalathus linearis (AKA rooibus or “red tea”). Made with a delightful light grapefruit scent.
Some people see AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and think of acne, I see AHA and think anti-aging. AHA’s have been proven to improve skin’s texture, help shrink pores and gently exfoliate. As we age, our skin cells don’t turn over as rapidly leaving our skin dull and lifeless. AHA’s (and remember these are all natural) help to slough off dead skin cells leaving skin looking radiant and more youthful!
What I love most about this moisturizer is the über lightweight oil-free texture and how quickly it absorbs– fast as a bunny (get it?) It doesn’t leave skin feeling greasy or sticky and leaves no residue. If you have very dry skin, you may want to apply a more heavy duty moisturizer over this; the good news is that it absorbs so well that you can layer other skin treatments over it without it feeling heavy on the face. I noticed a brightness to my skin after just a few days of using My Beauty Bunny AHA Moisturizer! This is going to be perfect for me this summer when my skin gets oily. I adore the light grapefruit scent, even though it disappears quickly.
