My favourite cruelty free beauty brands

When I first went cruelty free last year I felt overwhelmed. So many of the brands I loved were tested on animals and I was left wondering where I could find cruelty free brands on the high street.

Here are my favourite cruelty free brands.

Superdrug: All of Superdrug’s own brand products are cruelty free, which means you can get cruelty free hair dye, hair spray, face masks, shower gel and more. Result. 

Barry M: Cruelty free nail polish anyone? I’ve tried their eyeshadow and cheek palette and foundation also and it’s all really good. 

nSPA: Exclusive to ASDA, nSPA offer a great extensive and affordable range of skincare products, my favourite is their moisturiser. 

Sanctuary Spa + Soap & Glory: Both brands say they do not test on animals, so wahay for cruelty free high street shower, bath and pampering products.

LUSH: Before going cruelty free I’d never tried LUSH before but their skincare products are amazing and not that expensive really. For example a pot of their face cleanser is around £5 and lasts me two-three months. They also produce some great fragrances too, which are a bit tricky to come across at decent prices if you’re cruelty free. 

Elf: Another brand I hadn’t tried before going cruelty free. Their mineral foundation is great (a pot doesn’t last long though) and I love their blush. They have a massive range of really affordable products.

What is your favourite cruelty free brand? 
  • I’m so glad ELF is cruelty free! I use quite alot of elf products

    • Their product range is massive, I’m looking forward to trying more of their products.

  • Love this post I really try and feature as much cruelty free as I can!! I love S&G and NARS!

  • Great post I try and feature as much cruelty free as possible! Two of my fav brands are S&G and NARS!

    • S&G are one of my favourites too, I had no idea that NARS were cruelty free though. This makes me happy.

  • Fab post. My favourites are Soap & Glory and Lush without a doubt. I use Superdrug for a lot of basics. Plus I do love the Bodyshop. Liz Earle is cruelty free so that’s my treat brand. And it’s Barry M or Models Own for nails 🙂 xx

    • Thanks Aimee, I only recently discovered that Liz Earle are cruelty free, that’s probably quite a dangerous discovery for my bank balance.

  • I’m really sad that Kiehl’s and Clinique apparently test on animals but glad at least that they can’t sell products in the EU where any of the ingredients have been animal tested. Hopefully the rest of the world will follow suit with that ruling… although from the grotesque animal treatment in China I think it’s unlikely.

    I really need to do some more research and try to move to being cruelty-free. Or at least as much as I can.

    • It baffles me that companies still test on animals and it confuses me even more that some countries, like China, make it mandatory. MAC really disappointed me because they were cruelty free and went back to testing sometime last year.

  • Great to hear Barry M are they’re my favourite brand for nail polish. It’s just so hard for me, I hate the thought of animal testing but some of the brands I do I also really love it’s a tricky one xx

    • It’s difficult isn’t it. When I decided to go cruelty free I was so annoyed with Mac because they used to be cruelty free and switched back sometime last year.
