My Top 5 Cruelty Free Brands

To define what are cruelty free brands are brands that do not test on animals. Some brands only test their selected products on animals therefore those brands will not be on the list. This list is only for brands that are completely cruelty free.

I created this guide to show it’s possible to use cruelty free makeup both high end and drugstore! Unfortunately, all the products I use on a daily basis are not cruelty free however i am only writing this post for anyone out there who is interested using cruelty free makeup or wanting to product that don’t test on animals.

I only include brands I personally use and love, as well as the products I own. For anyone more information about cruelty free brands click here.
