Its that time of year where our skin really pays the price, cold weather, central heating and alcohol over the festive period can dry it out and leave it in need of a little extra TLC. The majority of mainstream moisturisers are not only tested on animals but contain animal products (such as cow fat), but fear not, here are 3 of our favourite, cruelty free, and vegan friendly moisturisers that have been tried, tested and approved by The Eco Edit to leave your face soft, hydrated and ready for anything the festive season can throw at it!

A luxurious thick cream that brightens, smooths and revitalises. This moisturiser from A’kin, a brand that is committed to using quality, natural ingredients, recyclable packaging and no nasties (including no palm oil) is a surefire daily winner that we love to use first thing in the morning as a hydrating base for makeup.
