Skin Proud is Glossier’s new 100% vegan and cruelty-free competitor

Skin Proud is here to help you in your pursuit of plump, dewy, glazed donut skin.

If vegan skincare is your jam, look no further than Skin Proud. Newly launched in Boots stores across the country, not only is the brand 100% vegan and cruelty-free but it’s also super affordable too. 

First causing a storm over on ASOS, skin nerds went crazy for the brand’s pastel pink packaging and the promise of dewy, glazed donut skin it assured users they could achieve in just a few easy steps. In the same vein as competitors such as Glossier and The Ordinary, it’s a millennial dream and – both of whom try to cut through the bs and do what they say on the tin. 

Already with the backing of top skincare expert Dr Ewoma Ukeleghe, the brand is all about promoting real, unfiltered skin. Encouraging people to embrace and celebrate the things that make them different, that extends to texture, pores and blemishes too – all of which are completely normal. 

Proving that they’re more than just talk, the team has gone beyond just publicly condemning heavily filtered campaigns though and has even called on the Advertising Standard Authority (ASA) to take action and ban photoshopping in skincare product advertisements altogether. 

According to research carried out by the brand, over half of those surveyed said they wanted to feel more confident in their natural skin… something that’s very hard to achieve when we’re constantly being served images of flawless complexions without so much as a single freckle visible. 

Designed for all skin types, the collection recently launched in Boots stores across the country and currently comprises a number of cult products, ranging from serums to moisturisers, balms and exfoliating tonics.

Everything Balm 

Skin Proud

Skin Proud Everything Balm – Multi Use Skin Balm, €8.99

Sleep Hero

Skin Proud

Skin Proud Sleep Hero – Overnight Sleep Mask, €15.99
