Cruelty Free Haul

Monday, 7 March 2016

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that I've started to go cruelty free. I have decided that when I buy make up, skincare, haircare etc, I will not purchase from companies that test on animals. 

I am obviously new to buying cruelty free, and for now I will continue to purchase from companies that don't test but their parent company does (NYX, Body Shop, Nars, Urban Decay etc). I know a lot of people don't agree with this but I don't want to dive in at the deep in and end up giving up.
Eventually I want to aim to only purchase 100% cruelty free and vegan products, but for now I'm starting with the basics. 

I went shopping a couple of weeks ago and popped into M&S, Boots, Lush, Superdrug and TKmaxx to check out their cruelty free brands and products. It looks like a lot but I did get the majority of this in the sale or on special offer!




In Superdrug I stocked up on my favourite cleansing wipes and also bought a new deodorant. 

I picked up this Tuscan Hills Powder Brush from TKmaxx. I love the natural style of this brush and cannot wait to try it out!

I've been a massive fan of the cruelty free brand B. ever since it came out in Superdrug. I believe that they're changing the style of their packaging so all of these products were discounted!

The B. palette was only £2.99 so I couldn't resist. I also found the Hard Candy palette in TKmaxx for £3.00 and I can't wait to try it out. I went into M&S and picked up the Pixi Copper Peach palette and I am obsessed! 

Also in M&S I had a look at the new Rosie for Autograph Make Up Range. As soon as I found out her products were cruelty free and had rose gold packaging, I knew I had to buy a couple of items! I'll be doing a full post on these soon. 

I love the Barry M Speedy nail polishes and when I saw there were four new shades out for spring, I had to have them! They were also on special offer. I also went into Lush and got this lip balm. It's of course cruelty free and also vegan!

Last but not least I ordered this NYX concealer from Boots and also this Sleek eyebrow gel. I later found out that Sleek are not cruelty free so I returned it for a NYX one. 

I hope you enjoyed my first cruelty haul!

  2. I'm so glad to hear you're trying to buy more ethically, it's so great when people become more aware and try to make a difference :-)
    you've picked up some stuff that I've been wanting to try for a while so I hope you write a post on your thoughts! Just so you know Sleek are indeed cruelty free and many of their products are vegan.
