I'm in need of a new cleanser and moisturiser and was hoping for recommendations.
I only use products that do not contain animals and were not tested on animals. I have sensitive, usually combination, skin that is currently very dry (perhaps due to winter or pregnancy).
Any recommendations gratefully received!!!

Cruelty-free skin care

I take it you are aware of the cruelty free list? I think it's choosecrueltyfree.org.au. There is also an app.
In addition to CCF, anything that is certified organic (and check for the symbol, not just words) are okay too.
Personally I use Miessence but do like Natio, Sukin and Natural instinct.

I use Integrity Cosmetics. Their stuff is completely animal free and all organic. It's pricey but I keep buying it because my skin is lovely from it

I use miessence and I also use raw organic honey to wash my face
I use a handmade moisturiser made by skyezone. I also use several other products of theirs.

Thanks everyone. Have you found the products you mention to be good for very dry, but also sensitive skin?

I have contact irritant dermatitis so I have to be exceptionally careful about what I put on my skin - even water!! I can't recommend Miessence highly enough

My skin is dry/normal & I'm super fair & prone to eczema & peeling skin if it gets too dry. I use Natio. It's cheap & easy to source which suits me. The only other thing to add is to make sure whatever product you choose is genuinely cruelty free. A lot of brands are owned by larger corporations who aren't cruelty free (eg Body Shop who is partly owned by L'Oreal who test on animals).

I like Lush but not sure about the dry skin problem. It's mostly natural so I would hazard a guess that it would be fairly good for sensitive skin

Yes, I have dry and sensitive skin and I find the Integrity moisturisers have fixed me right up. I also see on their website you can get a free sample pack to try it out.
It's not letting me paste the link for some reason, but just go to www.integritycosmetics.com.au and click on "Complimentary sample pack".
