My Cruelty-free Fall Wish List: 2017 Edition

fall cruelty-free fashion & beauty wish list | smelltheroses.com

I have had my eye on so many fun fall-inspired products lately so I thought I would summarize them into a post! As always, everything is 100% cruelty-free and/or natural where applicable. Maybe my fall wish list will inspire you to treat yourself and get more into the fall spirit!

Disclaimer: This post does include affiliate links from which I earn a small commission. Any earnings go straight back into my blog and help fund this site and its giveaways. Thank you for your support! 


My Fall Wish List

Autumn Pillow | smelltheroses.com

1. Autumn Truck Throw Pillow | PCB Home

  • Shop This Pillow: Autumn Truck

  • How cute is this pillow from Etsy?!  Throw pillows are an easy way to decorate your house each season and I’ve had my eye on this one. I like that it is simple enough to not clash with the other decor in my house and it will match pretty much anything. Side Note: I would totally buy every product from PCB Home if I could afford it because they are all so adorable!

Vegan Leather Jacket from Lulu's | smelltheroses.com

2. Bae Brown Vegan Leather Moto Jacket | Lulu’s

  • Shop This Jacket: Brown (pictured) | Similar: Black, Green, Tan

  • In the years since becoming a vegetarian, I have swapped out all my leather products for vegan alternatives (read my post about vegan leather to learn why). I had a similar Michael Kors leather jacket that I was in love with so when I saw this vegan jacket on Lulu’s I fell in love. A cute vegan leather jacket with my favorite pair of distressed jeans is one of my go-to fall outfits.

Vegan Leather Bag | smelltheroses.com

3. Madeline Mini Bucket | Angela Roi

  • Shop This Bag: Bordeaux (pictured) | Other Colors: Black, Cloud

  • Ever since Angela Roi launched their latest collection, I have had my eye on this bucket bag. I love the deep red color (called bordeaux) mixed with the gold hardware. It’s the perfect color to carry you from fall into the holiday season. Best of all, this bag is made of one of the highest quality vegan leathers I’ve ever come across.

Vegan Crossbody | smelltheroses.com

4. Zuri Multifunction Pouch | Angela Roi

  • Shop This Bag: Cloud (pictured) | Other Colors: Black, Bordeaux, Russet

  • I love a good compact crossbody bag and this one from Angela Roi is beautiful. The off-white vegan leather would work year-round making it a great addition to your purse collection!

Pumpkin Enzyme Peel from Erin's Faces | smelltheroses.com

5. Pumpkin Enzyme Peel | Erin’s Faces

  • Shop This Product: Pumpkin Peel

  • What gets you more in the mood for fall than pumpkin?! From carving pumpkins to eating pumpkin pie, we have found so many ways to utilize this amazing fruit (yes, pumpkin is a fruit – don’t worry, I didn’t know either).  Loaded with Enzymes, Antioxidants, Zinc, Iron and Vitamins C and K, pumpkin is amazing for your skin. This product from Erin’s Faces has rave reviews so it is at the top of my must-try list. 🎃

Vegan Over The Knee Boots | smelltheroses.com

6. Issac Black Vegan Suede Over the Knee Boots | Steve Madden

  • Shop These Boots: Black Over the Knee

  • Over the knee boots are such a fall staple so it’s no surprise I had to include a pair on my fall wish list. I was surprised to see these boots are made from 100% man-made materials making them vegan-friendly!

Vegan Suede Booties | smelltheroses.com

7. Marissa Light Cement Taupe Vegan Suede Ankle Booties | Lulu’s

  • Shop These Booties: Taupe

  • Another fall shoe staple are cute booties! They automatically make any outfit 10x cuter and come in so many adorable styles. I love the color of these vegan suede booties mixed with their natural wood heel.

Vegan Black Suede Booties | smelltheroses.com

8. Amaia Black Suede Lace-Up Ankle Booties | Lulu’s

  • Shop These Booties: Black

  • I know these are the 3rd pair of shoes on this list but when I saw the lace-up back I had to include them! 😍 As with the other shoes on this list, these are 100% vegan!

Lily Lolo Eyeshadow | smelltheroses.com

9. Laid Care Eye Palette | Lily Lolo

  • Shop This Product: Eyeshadow Palette

  • This eye palette from Lily Lolo has great reviews and just happens to contain so many perfect fall shades. I’m not a big eyeshadow girl but I like to use a little on special occasions so I know this palette would be a great addition to my makeup collection.

Lauren B Beauty Cruelty-free Nail Polish | smelltheroses.com

10. House of Blues Nail Polish | Lauren B Beauty

  • Shop This Shade: House of Blues

  • There is something so edgy and chic about black nail polish. It goes with everything and is perfect for the fall. This polish from Lauren B Beauty is actually not totally black but instead an extremely dark blue. As with all their polishes, it is cruelty-free and 7-free! 💅

Lauren B Beauty Cruelty-free Nail Polish | smelltheroses.com

11. Laurel Canyon Lover | Lauren B Beauty

  • Shop This Shade: Laurel Canyon Lover

  • When I saw this color it immediately made me think of fall! This 7-free/cruelty-free polish from Lauren B Beauty is the perfect balance between a true red and burgundy. This shade could easily transition from fall into the holiday season. 💅

Uptown Lip Velvet | smelltheroses.com

12. Uptown Lip Velvet | Clove + Hallow

  • Shop This Shade: Uptown

  • I love a beautiful matte lip for the fall and have had my eye on this specific one ever since it was launched. These lip velvets from Clove + Hallow dry in a beautiful matte finish without drying out your lips. This specific shade keeps selling out before I can buy it! It is safe to say, this product is at the top of my wish list. 💄💋

Orgain Pumpkin Spice Protein | smelltheroses.com

13. Pumpkin Spice Vegan Protein Powder | Orgain

  • Shop on Amazon: Pumpkin Spice Protein

  • I have been so eager to try the pumpkin spice flavor of my favorite vegan protein powder! Luckily it is available on Amazon Prime (whoop whoop). Packed with 21g of plant-based protein, Orgain’s protein powders are a great way for us vegetarians to get enough protein in our diet. I have yet to try a flavor of Orgain I didn’t like so I know this pumpkin spice flavor must be delicious! 🎃

Osmia Pumpkin Facial Soap | smelltheroses.com

14. Pumpkin Facial Soap | Osmia Organics

  • Shop This Bar: Pumpkin

  • Here’s another great pumpkin infused facial product but this time it’s from Osmia Organics. This soap works as a mild exfoliator that leaves skin soft and nourished. Side Note: This product does contain honey so it is NOT vegan-friendly. 🎃

I hope you enjoyed my fall wish list! What fall products have you had your eye on? Let me know in the comments section below!

Erin’s Faces Rosewater Tonic Review

Rosewater Tonic | Erin's Faces | smelltheroses.com

Hello everyone! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I attended Indie Beauty Expo NYC in late August. While there, I had the pleasure of meeting some of the people behind my favorite beauty brands including Erin from Erin’s Faces (yes, Erin herself)! She recently launched a new product that, for obvious reasons (🌹), I could not resist buying! That product was their new Rosewater Tonic.

Rosewater has become a staple in my daily beauty regimen.There are few things as refreshing as spraying cool rosewater on your face and smelling its beautiful natural scent. The use of rosewater even dates back to ancient Egypt when Cleopatra, known for her beauty, was said to have used rosewater on both her face and body. It is one of the most versatile products I own and has done wonders for my skin.

You can read all about the benefits of rosewater and other hydrosols in my previous post, “Everything You Need to Know About Hydrosols“. I guarantee you’ll be looking to buy some for yourself after you read about all their benefits and uses!

Disclaimer: This post is in no way sponsored and I have not been asked to write it by Erin’s Faces. I purchased this product at the show because I genuinely wanted to try it out. 😊 There are no affiliate links in this post. 

Erin’s Faces Rosewater Tonic

Why I Love It

High Quality Ingredients – I’m picky when it comes to my hydrosols. This rosewater tonic has become one of my favorites due to its simple and high quality ingredients. When Erin made this product, she put a lot of time and effort into picking the perfect rosewater supplier to ensure it was the highest quality!

Natural Scent – This rosewater has the most beautiful yet subtle rose scent naturally occurring from the roses used to distill it. That means there is no need for added fragrances.

Effectiveness – I’ve been using this product since I bought it a few months ago and have zero complaints about it! It does exactly what I want it to and makes my skin feel beautiful.

Ingredient Breakdown

Rosa Damascena (Rose) Hydrosol Water – self explanatory, this is the actual rosewater; the rosewater they use is steam-distilled and not diluted with water!

Linatural – a broad-spectrum preservative naturally derived from corn that is paraben free; used in this product to prevent growth of mold/bacteria (any product containing water MUST contain a preservative for this reason)

You will notice there are no synthetic fragrances added to their rosewater which is one of the reasons I love it! Not all rosewater products are the same so it’s important to find a quality product like this one.


CertificationsPETA Cruelty-free Certified & Vegan | smelltheroses.com

Cruelty-free Certified – As with all of Erin’s Faces products, this product is 100% cruelty-free meaning at no point is it tested on animals.

Vegan – This product contains no animal derived ingredients making it vegan friendly!


How to Use Rosewater Tonic

  1. Apply all over face/neck after cleansing and drying your skin to help your moisturizers and oils absorb better. Products absorb into the skin more effectively when applied to damp skin.
  2. Set your makeup by spraying rosewater on your face after application. If you have oily skin, this will help prevent oil build-up throughout the day or if you have dry skin, it will help moisturize your skin! Reapply throughout the day as a refresher or to restore moisture (perfect during the winter months).
  3. Apply to a cotton pad to gently remove makeup at the end of the day.
  4. Puffy eyes? Soak a cotton pad with chilled rosewater and apply to your eyes to reduce redness and decrease puffiness.

As always, thank you for reading! Let me know if you try this product and what you think of it. xoxo Caitlyn | smelltheroses.com
