Ten years ago, if you asked us to create a list of our favourite vegan and cruelty free beauty products, we’d be stuck to give you five. But in 2020, vegan and cruelty free beauty is fast becoming the norm, and thankfully, it’s never been easier to incorporate conscious products into your routine.
We’re spoilt for choice with vegan and cruelty free beauty, but we’ve managed (somehow) to compile our favourites to help you make your haul a little kinder.
BEAUTY BAY Identity 42 Colour Eyeshadow Palette
BEAUTY BAY’s Identity 42 Colour Eyeshadow Palette is one of our favourite eyeshadow palettes, maybe of all time, and yep, it’s 100% vegan and PETA certified cruelty free. With a mix of soft nudes and vibrant colours, the palette has everything to take you from day to night completely guilt free.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Gloss
Jeffree’s iconic makeup brand has long been flying the flag for vegan and cruelty free makeup, and that’s only one of the reasons why we are obsessed with The Gloss range. We’re also obsessed with:
– The intense shine
– The long-wearing formula
– The sweet scent
– The endless shades
Carbon Theory Cleansing Bar
We’re huge fans of Carbon Theory at BB HQ, so we were double excited to find out their Cleansing Bar (and all their other products) are formulated without any animal products or by products. The soap bar is a gamechanger for fighting hormonal breakouts and keeping skin (and animals) healthy and happy.
Herbivore Moon Fruit 1% Bakuchiol + Peptides Retinol Alternative Serum
The Herbivore Moon Fruit 1% Bakuchiol + Peptides Retinoal Alternative Serum has fast become a staple on our bathroom shelf thanks to its ability to make blemishes and pigmentation magically disappear (we owe bakuchiol for that), and because we know it made it to our shelves without harming anyone or thing.
Isle of Paradise Glow Clear Self-Tanning Mousse
The Glow Clear Self-Tanning Mousse sits in my personal top five must-have beauty products, mainly because it means my bed sheets stay clean after slathering it on – a big gripe from my BF in my pre-IOP days. But there is something about a cruelty free tan that just glows better.
UpCircle Beauty Coffee Face Scrub Citrus Blend
There is honestly nothing not to love about this face scrub but let me break it down anyway. 1) it’s vegan and cruelty free, of course 2) it’s made using repurposed Arabica coffee grounds from London cafes and 3) it leaves skin super soft, super glowy, and super guilt free. Win. Win. Win.
NABLA Close Up Concealer
NABLA’s full coverage Close Up Concealer has made a huge impact on our makeup hauls since it landed at BEAUTY BAY. Ideal for all skin types, the silky formula is only cruel to imperfections, dark circles, redness and discoloration.
