As you may know, I’m a vegetarian and a massive animal lover. Our two house rabbits really are my little fur babies and they mean the world to me. So when I see images of animals, especially rabbits, being used in cosmetic testing, it makes my heart weep.
My Favourite Cruelty-Free Beauty Products
One of my new years resolutions for 2016 was to make sure that all of my cosmetic, skin and haircare products were cruelty-free. After a bit of trial and error, I’ve finally found some products that I love. I’m still looking for a good face cream, so if anybody has any recommendations, please let me know! *UPDATE* I’ve discovered the Nutriganics range from The Body Shop and LOVE them!

Conditioner – LUSH “Jungle” Solid Conditioner
Soap/Hand Wash – Dr Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap

Although testing cosmetic products on animals is illegal in the EU, some cosmetics companies may be conducting cruel tests in other parts of the world.
