The alternative blog for cruelty free skincare, veggie food and alt/geek culture

What do you do when all of the products in your cupboards are cruelty free except the Savalon/ Sudocrem? Well I threw the last of mine out and went back to a simpler more moisturising solution: Aloe Vera gel. This one contains Tea Tree which is a wonderful anti-bacterial oil and Arnica which helps to bring down inflammation and redness.

A rather dozy mosquito must have gotten lost on the way to The Bloke and bit me instead. OMG it was so itchy! I put a small dab of this now very red area I’d been scratching and it cooled and soothed the area immediately. I was impressed! I’m going to be using this after I wax in future and in summer on my poor hot and puffy ankles.

I found this in Holland and Barrett and noticed on the Dr Organic website that they do tooth paste and deodorant also.

    Dr Organic’s office is down the road from my house 🙂 I love aloe vera for calming the redness in my skin. Sorry about the mosquito, my house has been taken over by insects recently.

      I’d not heard of them before even though they seem to be a fairly big company. I’ll have to try it on my face first thing in the morning when my T-zone is all blotchy, good idea. Hopefully the weather will get colder & drier :0)

    Bloody mosquitos! I’ve never tried any Dr. Organic products, didn’t realise they were stocked in Holland and Barrett, I’ll have to take a look.

      I prefer trying new brands which are available from shops so I don’t have to pay the postage. Then I can order all my faves online afterward. H&B have really branched out with lots of cruelty free brands.
