A couple of years ago I started paying more attention the products I was bringing into my home. I was surprised that many of my favorite brands of beauty products still tested on animals. That didn’t sit well with me so I began replacing cosmetics, cleaning items, and household items with brands that don’t test on animals. I wanted to share some of my favorite cruelty-free beauty products since I’ve been focusing on ways to be a little kinder.
Besame Lipstick: I love this company because the lipsticks are modeled after colors that were popular in decades past. My personal favorite is Cherry Red from the 1930s. It adds a vintage feel your look.
The Body Shop Moisturizer: I’ve been a fan of this company for years. Their skin care products are fantastic.
ELF Mascara: I’ve tried a few different mascaras and honestly if you don’t want to drop a ton of money these will give you the same results as other brands that will cost you two or three times as much.
Kiss My Face Deodorant: I switched to deodorant that doesn’t have aluminum in it because there are some health concerns around it. When your deodorant has fewer chemicals you will need to apply it more often which is a small price to pay. I do find that if I’m not working out or if it isn’t I really hot day this brand will really last the whole day.
Lush Bath Bombs: These make great gifts but you’ll probably want to keep them for yourself.
NYX Finishing Powder: I use finishing powder to keep my makeup lasting longer. If you apply after your done getting ready in the morning you won’t have to reapply as much throughout the day.
OGX Shampoos and Conditioners: By far my favorite brand of shampoos and conditioners and they have tons of great fragrances if you want to switch it up. Some of my favorites are Cherry Blossom, Coconut Water, and Macadamia Oil.
Queen Helene Face Scrub: These scrubs and face masks are great and affordable. I like the apricot scrub and the mint julep mask best.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation: I really just need a light foundation and this is perfect coverage and the fair shade matches my complexion.
Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste: Minty fresh and cruelty-free!
