For quite some time now I've been looking for a skin care range that is completely natural and free of animal products - and aren't tested on animals to boot. As coincidence would have it, the friendly folks at Be Happy beauty products showed up baring gifts... tonnes of gifts.
From coconut butter soap to toner mist and day cremes, I was beyond excited. All of their products are handmade with 100% natural ingredients. For instance, the skin toner mist contains rose water, witch-hazel water, aloe vera juice, vegan glycerin, lavender oil and chamomile oil.
But does it work? well, Yes and no. Let's start with the no - seeing as it's not as bad as one would think. The body lotion Be Happy dropped off dried out my skin quite a bit. But with that said, I wear a fairly dry skin anyway. If you were to try any product, as all darlings would know from trial and error, use it on a small area of the skin before bathing in the stuff. See how it works for you. We're all unique like that.
Let's get to the yes: the facecare range is amazing. from the cleanser to the toner mist to the day creme. Oh my. That pretty much sums it up... Oh my. My face was left soft, smelling fresh and as clean as if I've just been for a professional facial. Be Happy's entire range of products smell like the first day of spring and all their ingredients are sourced locally which adds a little bit of Local is Lekker vibes to this vibrant small business. Be sure to pay their website a visit and keep an eye out for them at local markets.
Do yourself a favour and give it a go - there's nothing quite like going all natural and cruelty-free.
