Meet Isla

🌱 Cruelty free beauty addict from the UK | CrueltyFreeCreative

I am a 27 year old skincare blogger (@crueltyfreecreative), enthusiastic about all things skincare!

I have been cruelty free since 2015, and am always on the lookout for great cruelty free products to add to my routine, including TRUE Skincare.

Having suffered with adult acne and very dehydrated skin since treatment of this, I love knowing that the ingredients I use on my face are good for my skin and help with my skin health journey. 

Skin type: Dehydrated / Acne Prone


No morning cleanse

I have very dry, sensitive skin and found skipping cleansing in the morning has improved my skin loads!

Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C Serums are great to help slow early signs of aging while preventing sun damage and dark spots.

Prickly Pear & Algae Collagen Renewal Moisturiser

This TRUE Skincare best seller contains clinically proven ingredients such as Microalgae to help replenishes fine lines and wrinkles by inducing fibroblasts to rapidly produce elastin and collagen. Prickly Pear Extract will act as a ceraminde booster while Sunflower Extract increases your overall skin hydration by over 67% in just 1 hour alone!

A good SPF will protect the skin from UVA and UVB damage, preventing premature skin aging.

Top Tip

Using a facial oil to complete my skincare routine has really helped with locking in extra hydration.


Certified Organic Clarifying Safflower & Geranium Cleansing Oil

Containing Key Ingredients like Safflower Seed Oil which has one of the highest percentages of naturally occurring Linoleic Acid commercially available, helping to balance the complexion. This cleansing oil is aslo rich in Golden Jojoba Oil which is high in Vitamin B & E to help moisturise & nourish the skin.

Cream cleanse face wash

Double cleansing is a must for me! This has changed my skincare game!

1% Hyaluronic Acid Complex

I alternate this with a Retinol Serum.

This Hyaluronic Acid contains three molecular weights which allows the benefits within the serum to penetrate to the dermis layer, providing both instant and long term skin hydration while also helping to balance sebum production.
