I changed to all cruelty-free products.

I don’t usually do post’s about beauty products but I would love to tell you all about some of my favourite products that I’ve found this year. In late 2018, I decided I needed a change, I’d been putting my money into the hands of companies that support Testing on Animals. It’s 2019, and we the world of ‘Animal lovers’ are still supporting this cruelty which is completely unnecessary, I’ve decided to put my money where my mouth was and I will no longer buy or use brands that are not ‘Cruelty-Free.’

Cruelty Free Products

Let’s talk for a minute about why I decided to change and then I will talk to you about the products I’ve found, tried and loved. I’ve always titled myself ‘an animal lover’ and I thought it was a bit half arsed to say you love animals but you will still wash your hair with a product that’s hurt an animal. I know some people may not share the same views as me but that’s okay. I’ve had mixed views from family and friends when I told them, one person said ‘What difference does it make?’

The difference is, I have the opportunity to support something I feel strongly about. One person can always make a difference and I hope by sharing this with you, I might able to help you make the change too.

I will admit that I’ve found it difficult to find brands that I like and I’ve found it to be a little pricey occasionally but I’d rather spend more than put my money into a company whose policies I don’t agree with.

I have tried and tested all of these brands myself personally so all thoughts and opinions are my own, this post contains some Amazon Affiliate links.


Baylis & Harding Beauticology Unicorn Candy Hand Wash

This handwash by Baylis and Harding is to die for. The smell reminds me of Cherry Bakewells and let’s face it the packaging is adorable. I am aware that not all of Baylis and Harding products are Cruelty-free as certain products contain bee’s wax. So if you are looking to buy from them make sure you check the label.

My Hair Matters: Sainsburys Hair Range

Hair products have proven to be difficult to find, but I was lucky enough to find this new Sainsbury’s brand called ‘My Hair Matters’ they create high-quality hair products at half the price and they are all cruelty-free. So far there are only 5 different types of Shampoo’s and conditioner are in the range and I’m hoping they will make more.

They offer Smooth, Volume, Moisture infusion, Nourish & Repair, and Colour.  I have tried the Mustuire infusion, which is lightly scented, it left my hair feeling soft and nourished the same as any other brand would. I am going to be trying the colour next as I do die my hair often and I feel it would be a better fit for me.

I’m very pleased to be able to keep Lush in my life as they are a Cruelty-free brand. I have reviewed Lush Products on my blog before which you can read here. Lush area great cruelty-free alternative as they don’t just create bath bombs. They have face products, bath & shower products, hair products, and a fragrance range. Not only do Lush smell to die for, but they are also all handmade and

Original Source

Original Source is a great choice for shower gels and scrubs, they are a vegan brand and their products are brimming with the most beautiful scents. There isn’t much to say about them other than if you want a change for a cruelty-free shower gel that smells good enough to eat and is longlasting Original Source is the one to choose.

The Body Shop

For hand creams and lip balms, I would always choose The Body Shop, I have quite sensitive skin and really dry, cracked skin on my hands, kind of like a lizard. The body shop hand creams always leave my hands smelling nice and feeling soft to the touch, I especially like that I can always match the scents from my hand cream to my lip balm.

Obviously, I haven’t covered everything in this one post so there will be more to come as I change my make-up brands, my hair dye brand, etc. I really hope you’ve enjoyed this post and possibly wish to make the change yourself.

    That’s awesome you have made the connection and changed to cruelty free! I pray all products are cruelty free and vegan soon.
    I made the change to all vegan and cruelty free products in August 2017.
    Thank you for sharing!


    1. I hope they are too, there is literally no need for products to not be, it is highly unnecessary and outdated in our day and age! I’m so glad you’ve switched too, I wish I’d done it years ago! 🌺

  3. I’m making the switch to cruelty free as well and it can be tough to track down the products for all of your needs! Good for you for doing it though. You are right about everyone being able to make a difference, even if it’s only one person at a time!

    I try to use cruelty free! It helps I don’t wear makeup so I don’t have to worry about those products. Awesome job!

    1. That’s great! Me neither tbh, I have make up but I wear it like twice a month if that? But I’m still going to swap! 😊

  5. This is really great – I try and go for the cruelty free options where I can. Superdrugs own brand products are all cruelty free and reasonably priced too 🙂 Also, ‘Smol’ is a good brand to check out for household products. Good to know about Sainsbury’s, I didn’t realise that they had a cruelty free range too ❤
