Affordable ways to shop cruelty free beauty

imageIf you’ve decided to throw out your old makeup stash or your worried becoming cruelty free will end up being more expensive these tips will help you get the most out of your money whilst making sure no animals are harmed in the making.

  Cruelty free makeup can be cheaper


Many brands that are cruelty free are sometimes the cheapest makeup option on the market.Affordable brands such as MUA, Makeup Revolution and Barry M are all cruelty free!

Own brands are your friend


The best two highstreet shops that have their own range that are 100% cruelty free are Superdrug and Marks and Spencer’s. All of their own products are cruelty free and carry the leaping bunny logo and are of really good quality. Supermarket’s own brands such as Waitrose and Morrisons are also cruelty free and are a lot cheaper than branded products.

Take advantage of online sales.



Holland and Barrett’s website hosts a huge range of cruelty free products and will often have massive sales on items and will often be buy one get one half price.
The bodyshop also has a good range of discount codes, taking a decent chunk off your checkout price.

 Discounted branded makeup.



It’s worth having a browse round discount shops such as pound stores and TK Max.
I’ve found a few pieces of Barry M makeup retailing in Poundland. TK max is a great place to look for discounted high end makeup. TK max has previously retailed Nars, Bareminerals, Illamasqua and theBalm at a fraction of the original retail price.

Beauty boxes


There are cruelty free beauty boxes available that offer a range of products for a good subscription price that is often much less than the value of the items.Other box subscriptions that include cruelty free as well as non cruelty free products such as You Beauty Discovery that allow you to pick out items each month is also a good alternative. Have a look at my youbeautydiscover box review  for more information.


 Keep it natural


There are many effective cruelty free skincare recipes that you can make yourself such as flower water and homemade face masks from things that you already have in your kitchen or garden. Find suggestions here.
