Brilliant Cruelty Free Brands for Cosmetics & Cleaning
There are many brilliant cruelty free brands available online and in our high street shops and supermarkets. Cruelty Free Kitty have a very comprehensive online list. If, like me, you are passionate about using cruelty free cosmetics and household products you may fancy trying some of these:
Neals Yard: The most fabulous bubble bath- seaweed and arnica is our favourite especially after a long run. It lasts for ages.
Espa- I love the pink hair mud! Many spas use the Espa range which I love as I can relax knowing that my treatment is cruelty free. See our review of The Cambridge Belfry and Bedford Lodge Spa, Newmarket here!
Liz Earle: I could rave about Liz Earle products for hours.They are my ‘go to’ brand and all of the products that I have tried have been wonderful. The ‘Superskin serum’ is excellent for sensitive skin and their classic ‘Cleanse and Polish’ is great too. Hair, body and make up products are also fantastic.
Dermaologica– A great ultra calming range. Quality skincare.
Body Shop– I love the Ginger Shampoo and conditioner which is specifically for dry scalps and the make up range is great too. Look for the great discount voucher codes online (but we aware that some of their products are exempt from the discounts).
Lush – For anyone old enough to remember ‘Cosmetics to Go’, the pre-runner to Lush, I have been a fan of the bubble bath bars and natural products ever since then and still LOVE the brand. Try walking past without being seduced in by your nose. Amazing bath bombs, shower gels, lotions and potions and even fragrances. Try one of the amazing Lush Spas for a real treat!
*Also Superdrug and Boots own label products have a wide range and choice – look for the cruelty free bunny on the back. Superdrug has its own toothpaste range and deodorants which are cruelty free.
Original source– scrumptious smelling shower gels.
Finding cruelty free fragrances is more challenging. Here are some brands which do offer cruelty free perfume and aftershaves:
Some of my favourite cruelty free make up brands include:
- Bareminerals– make up that is actually good for your skin. The original foundation powder if fabulous and has an SPF 15. Thye also do a skincare range. Great products.
