Cruelty free toiletries and beauty products for clean cheeks and clear consciences

One of our lovely followers, Ellie, has messaged us with some of her favourite cruelty-free products.

Londoner Ellie has really done her research when it comes to making ethical purchases. She’s totally against buying products from any companies which test on animals. (Right on sister!)

So without further ado, here are her top picks:

  1. Solait Bronzing Foam  

Mousse

Why Ellie loves it: This is the best fake tan I’ve ever used. It’s so easy to apply and gives you a great colour!

Why you’ll love it: We all want to go on holiday. But let’s face it, it don’t half cost an arm and a leg. So how about getting that sunkissed look for just £4.99.

Yeah you read that right… £4.99! So you’ll be totally believable when you tell everyone you know about the “SIMPLY FABULOUS DAHHHHLING” time you had when you went to the Seychelles.

Did you know? Solait is one of Superdrug’s own-brands. And all of Superdrug’s own lines are completely cruelty free. (WAHEY!)  It’s really easy to spot any of these products, just look for the Superdrug star on the packaging!

Why Ellie loves them: All the Original Source shower gels smell INCREDIBLE. Plus they’re approved by the Vegan Society.

Why you’ll love them: Nobody wants to be that guy on the tube. You know the one whose armpit you get stuck under and they clearly haven’t showered for at least five years?

Well start your day right with one of these shower gels and you’ll smell as fresh as a summer’s day, all year round.

They say: “We believe in respecting the world we live in and that we should live in it loudly and proudly”

Price: Starting at £1.

3. Green People Anti-Ageing Eye Cream 

Green people

Why Ellie loves it: I work long days and this eye cream helps me to look more awake and refreshed than I sometimes feel! Plus this is perfect for people like me who have sensitive skin.

Why you’ll love it: Our skin goes through a helluva lot – so it’s really important to make sure we look after it.

This nifty little product is rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants, and will help to keep you looking like you bathe daily in the fountain of youth. Plus it’s suitable for use by people who are prone to eczema and psoriasis.

Did you know? Green People was founded in 1997 by Charlotte Vøhtz, who wanted to create organic creams which would be suitable for her daughter’s allergy prone skin.

Green People never test on animals and their products are free from parabens, petrochemicals and synthetic fragrances.

Price: £12.50

4. Batiste Dry Shampoo

Batiste

Why Ellie loves this: I use this all the time. It’s smells great and more importantly it’s vegan!

Why you’ll love this: You know what? Sometimes washing your hair is just too much effort. All that lather, rinse, repeat can wear a girl out. And that’s why dry shampoo is a gift from the gods.

Batiste is cheap (£2.00 for 200ml) and sorts your ‘do out in seconds. They’ve got loads of different fragrances to choose from, as well as specific products for different hair colours.

They say: “Batiste prides itself on being a cruelty-free personal brand that cares about the well-being of both humans and animals.

Why Ellie loves it: This product is great! It removes make-up really easily and is a great every day cleanser too. Perfect!

Why you’ll love it: Loads of people rave about this one. Not only does it ensure that you haven’t got panda eyes when you wake up in the morning, it’s also great for tackling pesky break outs.

You know the ones… They always seem to pop up whenever you’ve got an important meeting or a hot date. Well we ain’t having it, and neither should you. So let’s teach those spots who’s boss.

Did you know?  Soap and Glory carry out all of their safety and efficacy tests on people. They refuse to test on animals, and their biggest partner is Boots who fund through an organisation called FRAME (Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments).*

Price: £8
