From our partner VEGAMOUR

We dove into the world of vegan skincare with VEGAMOUR, and we gotta say — we’re never turning back. After all, shouldn’t we treat our skin as well as we feed the rest of our body? (That answer, friends, is a resounding yes.)

The Deets: The vegaLASH and vegaBROW serums supply your lashes and brows with everything they need to be full and beautiful while avoiding all of the harmful chemicals other products commonly contain. And all of VEGAMOUR’s products are 100 percent vegan, natural, cruelty-free and hormone-free, meaning your skin gets all of the powerful, plant-based nutrients it wants and none of the icky stuff it doesn’t.

Great News: For being a loyal Swirled subscriber, Vegamour is giving you some major discounts right now on these game-changing serums. You can score either vegaLASH or vegaBROW for 35 percent off (a $30 savings) or buy one and receive the other one for no extra charge (a $79 savings). Time to stock up! [Swirled]

Wintry scenes (piles of white, glistening snow and cloudy skies that feel so bright you have to squint when you walk outside) reflect up to 90 percent of UV rays while beachy setups of beige sand and blue water only reflect up to 20 percent of those same rays.
