A topic that I’m very interested in & feel like I don’t spend enough time chatting about is cruelty-free beauty. If I say so myself, I’ve always been one of those people that try to be eco-conscious whenever they can & I’ve always been open about where I stand when it comes to mistreatment of animals. Though, it wasn’t until recently where I sat down & tried to educate myself on the impact the beauty industry has – both good & bad. I’m not an expert but I feel like I have enough knowledge to guide you through the very basic steps of cruelty-free brands. I don’t think anyone has missed that Lush are animal-friendly but did you know that, for example, all the it-girls favourite Anastasia Beverly Hills and Charlotte Tilbury is completely cruelty-free? That popular brands, Urban Decay & NARS are cruelty-free? That drugstore dupes like Crazy Rumors, Pacifica & EcoTools are 100% vegan? Keep reading for all things beauty that’s kind towards animals, the environment or both.
Noteworthy: Some of these brands are cruelty-free but, their parent company do test on animals. I’ve chosen to feature these brands because I support them even though I don’t necessarily agree with their parent company.
